Love this hotel! It's old but has a charm personified by it's wonderful staff. It's also spotlessly clean, has little extras like the basket of apples on Reception everyday for the guests to help themselves. The breakfast is high quality, large variety, charming, friendly, efficient staff who even though busy always have a ready smile. Dinner can be hit and...

Classed as a four star it is really a three. However the staff provide a five star service and are really friendly. Hotel is a bit dated but very clean and rooms are serviced daily with towels etc change regularly. Food is good value for money and plentiful with a good variety. I recommend staying here.

Stayed here for a week, booking in was quick and easy. Surprised by room as it was better than expected, large twin bedded room on 3rd floor near the front of the hotel, so a good side sea view, though as others have pointed out very near the apartments opposite which makes the room dark, also lighting in the room...

As said before in the comments, we arrived at night and we didn't get the room booked. Instead of seaview room, we got a normal one. As it was late, the staff answered they couldn't do anything at this time and come back tomorrow. Next day we changed room but the price difference was not reimbursed. More in the new...

Nice central hotel, close to Sliema town centre. Bus stop to Valletta 2 mins walk away. Lovely clean hotel, good sized rooms. Booked half board- buffet style meals, 3 choices of meals which change daily- mostly very nice- need more vegetables though!

The hotel has a very good location, half way between the main shopping area of Sliema and St Julians. Buses stop outside so it is very easy to get around the island from here and only 10 or so minutes walk by the back streets to the Sliema ferries.(there is a bus if you dont want to walk) We found...

The service from the staff in the hotel was excellent in all of the departments. The breakfast was very tasty, the rooms were clean and the pool area was very nice. The location was excellent with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. On the down side the decor was very 70's style, lots of ceiling areas with damp patches untreated....
