I booked this hotel for a visit with my parents (in their 60s) for 6 nights over New Year. The biggest issue for me was the incessant noise from the building site directly across the road from my room. I had to keep my curtains closed most of the day as the builders could see straight in. They began work at 7am every day apart from New Year's Day (despite local legislation saying no noise before 8am), and the hotel staff refused to tackle them about it. I was offered another room, but the noise could still be heard. In this day and age there are certain things that are standard in hotels, so it was disappointing to note the following: - no kettle or tea/coffee in the room (we had to pay a 20 Euro deposit to borrow a kettle) - no water provided in the room (what kind of hotel doesn't give a complimentary bottle of water when you can't drink water from the tap?) - every time I needed to dry my hair, I had to go down to reception and leave a 20 Euro deposit to borrow a hairdryer - you can ask the hotel to book a taxi for you, but you have to be paid for in cash, in advance - you can't add anything to your bill - no towels were provided for the swimming pool. There didn't seem to be any changing rooms there either. - you need to leave a 10 Euro deposit for your room key card when you arrive. Breakfast was extremely poor. The staff don't reset the places when tables are vacated; they're barely 'cleaned'. Food quality was disappointing: stale croissants and luke-warm food. The restaurant is a big place, yet all the breakfast things are huddled in one corner, meaning that everyone was pushing and shoving to get what they wanted. The staff were as helpful as they could be (within the rules and regulations of the hotel), and even apologetic when they took my 20 Euros to borrow a hairdryer for 5 minutes... Come on, Alexandra Hotel, sort it out! With a bit more effort this could be a nice place, but we were sorely disappointed.
We were greeted by the receptionist which was so nice and educated... We waited few minutes until they opened the hall... It looked amazing ... antipasto... soups ... pasta dishes main courses... deserts... It was divine the food to die for... All buffet... Loved it and would definately visit again... btw very affordable price aswell
Was very disappointed in this hotel. Would not use it again. Stayed B&B. But the breakfast was poor. Our room was ok however a charge to use safe, fridge and wifi is now unacceptable. We were lucky and we had a balcony which over looked a free wifi hotspot! So wifi on the balcony! Never got to use the bar which had good reviews. Pool was on the roof and another bar up there ( bar closed around 3pm). However 7pm and roof looked up......in August!!!!!!! Tried to use the pool twice, but never any sun beds or seating available. Pool also very dirty! Could be so much better!
I normally dont write reviews but i was so happy i chose this hotel that i said to myself they deserve it. I loved the hotel and lovely, sweet, friendly people working there... Always with smile and ease.. Hotel was great, moderm and clean and even if something would not work it woild not bother me :D Sending love from cold London and see you soon :* Room 324...
This hotel has a nice location. The lobby and bar and restaurant are nice. Service lacks warmth and courtesy. Rooms are decent but they will charge for everything. Wifi is free in the Lobby but you will have to pay for it in your room. Even the use of the safe will be charged.
We enjoyed our stay at the hotel and it looked newly refurbished. Since we were on an sightseeing trip we did not get to use the hotel during the day but did take breafast in the morning and this was good - I didn't take coffee but my wife said it was OK. The staff were helpful and polite and everying was clean and tidy BUT - this is the twenty first century and I really do expect to get free wifi at a good speed when I stay in a hotel. Here they charge the earth if you wanted it in your room - cheaper to buy extra 3g on your phone if your allowance runs out. In the lobby they did offer free wifi BUT I did a speed test everyday and the maximum I found was 0.50 mbps - yes less than one - which meant laoding even the most basic page took and age..
Malta is a Island of exceptional beauty and one of the most photogenic place.i stayed in hotel Alexandra for a week in Saint Julian,s.Great location,the room with the balcony and prime time view on the sea and the beach . The dinners are extravagant ,with local fish and produce,try fish pie. The staff is friendly and approachable. I will remember the view of St George,s Bay . But the place to be is Valletta the capital city of Malta. Local bud takes you there for 30 minutes. Visit Barakka Gardens which offer stunning view of Grand Harbor,St John's Cathedral built in 1578 as the place where the Knights would gather for worship. Magnificent journey.

The location is excellent, just a few minutes walk from the hussle and bussle. Upgraded rooms excellent and the stars of the whole visit are the staff. Chris and his team along with are brilliant. Tony on the bar and Patrick in the restaurant. with Romina on the desk make up the 'A' team
A/C in room didn’t work, even after 3 visits to check/ “fix it” over 25C” degC in our room in Oct! Paid for WiFi which never worked, had to pay to use fridge, safe etc Coffee at breakfast taste like burnt toast. Room smelt of sewage. Reception staff are friendly.
no frills, no special service but ok. rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. Unfortunately, you can't have the aircon at night unless you are ok with the sound of an industrial level fan blowing? Breakfast has a fair choice but the quality of bacon, sausages etc is poor. However, what else do you expect from a big medium priced hotel. They do have a nice roof top pool, but views are spoiled by many cranes from several construction sites that surround the hotel. I guess thats the price of progress?
