Stayed in May 2016, for our last night in Malta, to be close to the Airport. It was a nice old style hotel with many period features and a "clubby" atmosphere, high ceilings, big comfy sofas and armchairs in the main lounge, pretty covered terrace and a good sized swimming pool at the rear. Well located in a well regarded...

It was the BEST! It will be transformed in a home for elderly people! The trees are cut, a part of the hotel is now crashed down. So sorry! Within roughly a week all employees are fired! Such a shame for the new owner!

This was my 4th visit to the Imperial Hotel since 2014 and I was intending to return every year at this time to celebrate my birthday. I had heard a rumour on the internet that it had been bought and the new owne wais going to turn it into a residence for the elderly later this year. I was stunned...

Loved our stay in Malta. All the hotel staff were friendly and helpful. We booked B & B and the breakfasts were very good. We stayed for a week. I would recommend the weekly bus ticket as the main form of transport is a very good bus service and is ideal for getting around the island.

When we arrived the receptionists said they had no booking for us. I was shocked and showed them our booking made 8 weeks previously (through On The Beach) for a garden room. They were rather abrupt and disappeared to a back room leaving us feeling a bit unwelcome after a 12 hour journey. 10 minutes later we were relieved to...

Dear Sir / Madam, Thank you very much for sharing you observations following your stay with us at the Imperial Hotel. I admit that I am very upset to read that housekeeping fell short in sorting out your request and that you had to open a cupboard storing old duvets as you did not feel comfortable on semi-orthopaedic mattresses. I...

I'll give this place 1 star because it was actually open, and we did get a room. Not a garden room, as booked (at a premium rate), nor a room that had been cleaned properly, with beds that could properly be slept in. Nor did it have a shower with doors on (it did have 1 door, just a gap...

Not too exciting all around. Rooms are just okay, breakfast is boring. It might have been special at the end of the last century, but it is only worthy of 2 and a half stars. A bit shopworn! Front desk staff very nice.

Our 2nd visit here and very satisfied with our stay. Lovely room, towels changed daily and bedding changed regularly. Slight musty odour in one wardrobe. Looking out onto garden. Shampoo and soap provided, toilet rolls kept stocked up. Tea/coffee facilities. Excellent A/C unit on wall. We were on B&B basis, can't comment on dinners but breakfast was okay, nothing special....

Dear Mr. B, Thank you very much for your comments following your second stay with us.
