This was my third visit to Le Meridian and yet again I enjoyed my stay. As a solo female traveller I find the hotel and the surrounding areas safe, relaxing and super friendly. The rooms are a great size, clean and have all the facilities that I require. The house keeping staff maintain the rooms to a high standard and always have a hello for you as you pass in the corridors. Though I must add that all of the staff have always been welcoming and friendly as well as helpful when looking for advice. I tend to eat in the various cafes/resturants that surround the local bays rather than in the hotel though I have sampled the breakfast which was delightful with a good range on offer. I can't wait for my return visit in September 2018!!
From the minute I arrived I was impressed with everything about this hotel. The staff are friendly and efficient. The rooms are spacious and clean. The breakfast has a large selection of different foods, some healthy, some not quite so healthy, but all very tasty. I was extremely impressed by the gym as by hotel standards, this is an excellent mix of both free weights and machines to cover most exercise requirements. The only negative about my entire stay was that there is a bar outside on the street level that gets quite noisy with live music, this is not connected to the hotel so is out of their control, however, I feel that people should be made aware of it. I would definitely recommend this hotel and have every intention of staying here again
We booked a room with a few days notice during the low season for just the weekend. We live in Malta but wanted to take use of the pool with the kids and order some room service from bed. Pros: - Staff was exceptionally friendly, very classy and helpful. Goes for the door man, receptionists, bell boy and cleaners. They were all great! Our daughter received a gift bag with crayons and papers along with other craft things. - Booked through SPG and felt very special with a sign next to my door saying “Starwood Preferred Guestroom”. - I booked the deluxe view room but was offered to upgrade to the executive room that included executive lounge access with lounge breakfast for an additional €50, which was a good deal. - The view from our bedroom was absolutely magical, we couldn’t believe it! Our executive room had a huge balcony next to the executive lounge and even though it was rainy, we were still enjoying it. - The dessert in the executive lounge during afternoon snack time was amazing! Same for the room service dessert. Cons: - I requested an early check in which is normally alright as a SPG member, but when I contacted them the day before the arrival to confirm my request they still couldn’t promise anything. A few hours before check in on the day of arrival they could confirm. - Room service, limited choice of food and it did not taste good. Chicken in the ceasar salad was burned, a starter of salmon was literally just a slice of salmon and nothing else (~€15), ham and cheese toast was oily and tasted really bad, chèvre salad was not good at all except the tiny bits of chèvre. Not at all what you expect from a five star hotel. Only platter of cheese and cold cuts that was alright and the desserts. - Executive lounge was horrible! Room was cramped, dark and boring. The staff was watching over our shoulder all the time and we soon realized they were insisting on doing our coffee and so on because of the insects living in the coffee machine. We entered in the evening to get some take away coffee and there was a huge bug like a coach roach, but with wings. In the morning during breakfast we saw a smaller one, again by the coffee machine. Food was horrible, we took one bite of breakfast in the lounge and realized it was as bad as the room service. The scrambled eggs tasted like they had mixed yesterdays left overs with today’s. Not so hungry either after the insects. Good about the lounge though was that take away mugs were available, open 24/7 with drinks and kids were allowed. - Indoor pool was very full, no sun beds available on a Saturday evening. Kids was only allowed in the pool after 6pm so we couldn’t go earlier. Had to leave the youngest in the car seat by the pool so we could see her sleep whilst playing with the 1,5y in the pool for 20 minutes. Didn’t use the saunas or book a massage because it felt too full. - Air condition was bad, we tried turning it down and eventually completely off but it still got super hot and stiff in the bedroom. This was February, should be cold in Malta. Had to sleep with the balcony door open later on. - There was a light from the ac and from the fire alarm/security alarm that was annoying us all night. It couldn’t be turned off. - For some reason the toilet was in a separate room from the shower/bath/wash basin, so you couldn’t wash your hands after going to the toilet and you couldn’t go up to use the toilet if you were in the bath. - Rooms were old and it really needs a refurbishment. Toiletries felt cheap and bed was awfully hard. Summarize: We were disappointed in the experience we had, this was not a five star hotel and the extra money spent on executive room and lounge was not worth it. View was exceptional though and we look forward to staying again after the remake to Marriott.
I visited this wonderful hotel with my family in January 2018. The hotel is very nice and its location is very good too - overlooking the sea. Right next to the hotel there is a bus station if you want to explore Malta. The staff from the hotel is very proffessional, polite and extra helpful. I would point out that Branko, Kevin, Dijana and the front desk ladies fulfiled every request we had with a smile on the face. They made us feel special and valued from the very first time we entered the hotel. The overal service was on a very high level. The hotel room was very spacious and comfortable. It was kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very good and executive lounge entrance is highly recommended. They serve an excellent range of domestic wines, beers and variety of food. Make sure you visit the spa and relax in the pool, jacuzzi or one of the saunas. Loking forward to visit this hotel again soon and if you are in a search for the perfect venue to stay in Malta, this hotel is the right place for you.
I stayed for five days with my wife and our 2-year-old son. We don't usually stay in five star hotels, but it was the low season and we got a good deal. We usually prioritize location over luxury. If you are looking to relax at the hotel itself, take a walk at a nice promenade by the sea, and have a wide variety of restaurant options, this is the right place. If you are more interested in visiting the historical sites of the Island and you are relying on public transportation, the location is also very good, but not the best. There's a bus station very close to the hotel, from which several bus lines take you to Valleta in about twenty minutes. The buses can be very very crowded, we had difficulty getting on them with our child's stroller. Valleta is one of the main places to see, but you also need to get to Valleta in order to continue from its central bus station to other parts of the Island, such as the Hypogeum, the Tarxien Temples, the Three Cities, etc. So it may be more convenient to stay closer to Valleta, in Silema for instance, which is a shorter bus ride. In Silema you also have the option to take a ferry to Valleta and a cruise to Gozo and Comino. The hotel room was very spacious and comfortable. It was kept spotlessly clean. Breakfast was very good. The swiming pool was fun, they open from 6am to 10pm, they allow children except from 12pm to 6pm. The staff was super professional, polite and helpful. Big kudos to Criss and Mihaela. The only negative thing I can say about the hotel: think twice before you order food. The first night we ordered a pizza and a burger via room service, and it was terrible, barely edible. The last night we ordered a ham & cheese sandwitch from the bar and it was ok.
Stayed in late January. Hotel is very nice and staff were friendly and very helpful. Rooms are great and ours had a bath and shower which was a nice touch. TV channels are limted but thats not why you are here! Make sure you use the spa even if you don't want one of the treatments as it's free to hotel residents.
Last minute booking for a pre Xmas break. Hotel, staff, service all excellent as per usual. This was our 4th visit last year. Executive lounge is highly recommended, buffet food very good & an excellent range of quality spirits + local wines & beers. Good breakfast. Will be back again in 2018
Not good for families we went as a family as the hotel was a gift but its not good for families or the lower class like ourselves but perfect for business people and wealthy folk its perfect .Nothing could be said more its very posh
Clean rooms with good breakfast to highlight. Also the gym has a lot of equipment and the indoor pool is very pleasant. The hotel has 2 restaurants in the ground level as well as a cafe overlooking the bay. The neighborhood is safe and quiet at night.
I've stayed in Le Meridien for the conference and it was a good choice, although not a great one. Hotel has a variety of conference, training and board meeting rooms, but all off them lack the direct sunlight. Anyway, rooms are spacious enough and equipped well, but we have encountered some serius issues with the electricity (power went off during the presentations couple of times and some of the sockets were down; the extension cable provided for the beamer was sparking and a bit of smoke appeared, causing electronic devices to dim - maybe it happened because of british three-pin sockets). Coffee provided for the breaks wasn't a five star and the pastries were simply stark old. Rooms are very nice, comfortable and all-equipped, but I had a leak from my shower cabin, forcing me to use all the towels as a water-dam :) Staff is friendly and helpful, doing their job fine. Food is all right, without any surprises. Neighbourhood is ok - seaside with a road, citibuildings and concrete beach :), you can go to Valetta with a ferry, or eat in one of nearby restaurants (some of them really good!) In summer it will probably get crowded, but I can't really say, as my stay was winter. Cautiously recommended.
