    Super helpful hotel team in central Valletta

    The cleanliness and location of this hotel is perfect for exploring Valletta. Everything is within easy walking distance. I would say initially I was in a front facing 1st floor room and there is a fair bit of noise from the street in the evening so if you're sensitive to noise/not going to be out late then request a different floor. I have to say the team here were AMAZING in sorting this out. I asked one evening if it was possible to swap rooms the next day and in the morning they were so proactive at sorting this out so I couldn't ask for a better service. The entire time the team were so helpful & understadnding during check out as I needed somewhere to take a work call. Would recommend this place for sure!!!

    Would use again

    Nice boutique hotel in central Valletta. On sidestreet next to St Georges square, plenty of restaurants right on the doorstep with no problem of noise from within the hotel itself. Spacious room with good air con, small balcony area (no view). Pleasant terrace and restaurant on the roof. Friendly reception.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Not very boutique but perfect location

    Room - furniture minimalistic but fine for short stay. Bed and pillows were very comfortable and great air conditioning. Room cleaned and bed linens changed every day. View. - room 205 described as city view, well it was a view of a wall. Plus side rooms on this side were much quieter then any on the front due to restaurants and bars next door. Facilities- maybe down to covid but no breakfast available and rooftop bar not open. Location - absolutely perfect. Bang in the centre of Valletta, very short walk to Sliema ferry and St George’s square. Staff - all very friendly and helpful Valletta is an amazing city and this hotel is a great base to explore but it’s not a place full of 4 star facilities and extras . 8/10

    Great Hotel in the heart of Valletta.

    I had a great stay at this hotel well located in Valletta. Many things are still shut down due to Covid 19 but the staff was great and I received an upgrade to a suite. It was lovely.

    Excellent location - down the street from St. George's square - fantastic for the New Year's celebration. Large, clean, modern rooms. Manga - super helpful and friendly at the front desk. The downside is the noise - my room was close to the street - garbage truck early in the morning, could hear footsteps upstairs. Chef didn't show up for breakfast one morning, hot water for shower ran out one day.

    Unforgetable experience

    The staff were great. Very friendly and always smiling. The hotel needed a lot of repairs. We had to change our room three times because the water heaters were not working. In one of the rooms the toilet was leaking big time. The breakfast was not that great. Also one day chef dint show up and we had to settle for coffee and juice.

    Good - not great

    Magda in front desk was amazingly helpful. However, the room was basic and had some torn off lights or things not working right. Not perfect but good for a basic stay.
