Lovely staff
Lovely hotel, well placed for all amenities. Lifts very confusing though! It would help enormously if the floor number was visible when the doors open as you can’t always see it in the lift when others are in there. Would I stay here again? Yes!

Not so pleasant stay
Rooms are very bland. View from the window is just a wall in front of your face. Pools are very small not as the pictures project on the adverts. Parking is not included in the already expensive pricing. Parking is €8 per night for which you won’t be made aware by the same receptionist that you have to leave the car keys with the security guy since they might need to move your car for the storerooms entrances

Pleasant stay
Overall was a pleasant stay, the only thing is that we waited minimum an hour at pool area for a plate of pasta and a burger and pool area seemed larger in photo.

An excellent experience
An excellent experience! the hotel appeals to a somewhat younger clientele and has a really good vibe. Clearly there has been a lot of attention to detail. Even the background music in various parts of the hotel is good. My wife and I checked in on May 23rd and sadly, tomorrow will be our last day. We have thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay here and I would whole heartedly recommend this hotel! It is in a great location, close to numerous shops and really good restaurants. When we return to Malta, we plan on staying here again and again! We have been staying in a studio room on the 3rd floor. It is well appointed, has a sleeper sofa, a kitchenette with all the dishes, utensils, pots and pans that you will need. A small, refrigerator, microwave, toaster and induction cook top all of which are in good condition and we made good use of. The balcony is large with chairs and a table and a good view down the road of the church and the water in the distance. In spite of room facing the main road, with the door closed we heard nothing! The bathroom in the room was modern, well designed and all fixtures working perfectly. The walk in shower had a rain shower and a hand held wand and water temp and pressure were consistent no matter what time of day or night we used it. The air conditioning worked well and quietly kept the room comfortable. There are plenty of convenient outlets for charging your devices. While the bed was a bit uncomfortable, hotel staff quickly addressed the
