Old Hotel, urgent Need for renovation better I do not add further comments to the Hotel. The Location around the Hotel is nice, the whole Island is great.

Beautiful property and location Nice facilities Close to Valletta gate. 5 minute walk Lots of steps to the Street

Friendly, polite, helpful, efficient and honest staff particularly at the receiption. I will not fail recommending to my friends

Fabulous amenities, clean and walkable to the city center. The pool is fantastic and the views are gorgeous.

Staff and location was excellent. The only negative is that the hotel needs to be beautified/updated. Would definitely stay again.

Convenient location with great facilities. Good breakfast and convenient bar/coffee bar off the lobby.

+ Great Stuff and service + Clean Room + Valleta is near by nice spending a night over there + Good breakfast - Far from the Center, if you up to Dance / Bars / night our Choose hotel near PaceVille area which has all the clubs and Bars is about 17 euro taxi , hotel charge 20 euro - Dollar Change rate is expensive better bring Euros

Loved the location. Great people. Nice breakfast.

On site indicated free shuttle to/from airport -- at hotel, turned out to be 20euro each way (actually slightly more than a cab cost for a colleague). While a nice enough hotel, with overall good-to-excellent service, this is not a Five star hotel by American standards. My room was "good" clean, but there was dust on some out of the way areas, the bathroom had a musty/moldy odor, discolored grout, poorly flushing toilet, etc. Overall, I've had cleaner/better maintained rooms in 3 start US hotels. The exterior of the hotel was also looking a bit run down -- areas needing to be pressure washed, railings/metal needing repainting. Overall presentation probably was five start at one point. Service inconsistent... some excellent, some impossible to get (bar /lounge area was poorest service of various food options). Buffet dinner nice, but bit overpriced. Overall experience was slightly overpriced for what I received. However, the hotel is perhaps a bit under maintained/dated -- but this may vary depending on room??
