6/10 Good

Definitely a Budget Choice
An older hotel. Relatively clean room. Tried some upgrading. The bathroom has been ungraded, but definitely on a budget as with the other renovation. Has an old musty hotel feeling. Okay for budget hotel if you can get it a low enough price

8/10 Very good

The hotel and Malta are really good, all the steps keep you really fit, loads of good restaurants. The only criticism of the hotel is the shower curtain, get rid of it, put up a shower screen

My recent stay
It was a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were basic but included a shower and of course had a fantastic view across the Grand Harbour. Reception was courteous and efficient. Continental buffet breakfast was more than reasonable and of good quality and variety. I would recommend the hotel to future visitors for excellent value for money.

2/10 Poor

One star for location. Minus 4 for rest. Biggest issue is noise. I booked the room called 3 bedroom with view. It is next to the elevator that people take to bar and restaurant. Plus there is a public toilet on the floor so lots of noise. Plus its the first thing they clean in the morning. It will wake you up. And breakfast set up and eater noise too. I came in late the first night and it was raining so no noise until morning. Night 2 they booked a huge party that started at 8pm and lasted until 2am. Then they cleaned up until 3am. Then they started again at 530am. My complaints were scoffed at or ignored. The third night a group of youngsters gathered outside after the bars closed and yapped until sunrise. Not the hotels fault but indicative of what you may go through. Plus there is the car and deliveries to the bar noise early on. The room is bare. I expected that. Tv could be upgraded past tablet size. Only 10 terrible channels. Ac is old and weak. No way above shower water heater stays hot for 5 people. It ran out most times for me. Bathroom window wont close. Safe seemed to require some odd key. Shuttle would not drop me off here. Had to walk from city center. Things could be easily addressed but i got the feeling that they consider you an imposition and not whom makes their existence possible.

Location was great - close to ferry and other sights. They have a great service for those that need to check out but not ready to leave the city. They kept our bags, provided free WiFi, a lounge where we could hang out When we needed a break and another outdoor lounge overlooking the harbor where we spent the early evening. They called and arranged for a taxi to and from the airport. Rooms are a bit dated but clean and that’s all that we required. Staff could not have been more helpful in helping us determine how we would spend our day. We would stay there again just based on the aforementioned items.
