We stayed at Osborne Hotel for a weekend . The room was very clean , towels have been changed every day ( amazing for a 3* Hotel!) .Absolutely recommended for its great location , exactly in the beautiful center of Valletta and for the fact that the room was so clean !! The staff especially Tony & Rony was very friendly ! Important thing to mention : the breakfast ! The variety was good enough for a 3* hotel as well !!

The "Osborne Hotel" is a pretty small hotel, perfect situated in an old part of Valletta.You can walk in a short time to all the sights, bars and restaurants. It takes ten minutes to the bus and taxi station. The entrance and the lobby of the hotel are nice and pleasant. We had a wonderful room with a spacious bathroom. Both always very clean and tidy. The whole staff is always very friendly,helpful and very qualified. A very good and tasteful breakfest in the nice restaurant was every day the perfekt start to a wonderful day in Valletta. We enjoyed our journey to this marvellous city and are very glad to have choosen the "Osborne Hotel".

The Osborne is an old fashioned hotel offering good quality accommodation. The location is on a reasonably quiet street within easy walking distance to Valletta's attractions. The staff are friendly and the included breakfast was very good. There is an overflow room for when it gets busy. The hotel has a very large bar area (good coffee available) as well as small pool on the roof with room for sunbathing and views over the city. The bathroom was compact and there was no shower screen (English style over the bath). There is an excellent steak restaurant nearby (bookings usually needed) but we weren't impressed with the nearby pizza restaurant.

We usually book at hotels with far more facilities than the Osborne but we never use them. This was therefore a smarter choice being less expensive and really well located in a narrow street, a feature of much of Valletta. Valletta is full of interesting history and on our last visit to Malta we spent a lot of time transporting ourselves from our hotel in St Julian's Bay to enjoy Valletta`s sites. No such difficulty this time as we were a three minute walk from the main (Republic) Street and about six minutes from the Bus Station and the Sliema Ferry for visits elsewhere. Plenty of good restaurants around the Osborne and the Sciacca Grill and Trabuxu Bistro are only a few doors away in South Street. The King`s Own Band in Republic Street is also a recommended place to eat. At the Osborne we had room 401 which was spacious and comfortable. There is a great city view of Valetta and a similarly good sea view of the waterway leading to Sliema from a small balcony accessed via a window/doorway from the bathroom. Don`t be put off by that, the view was splendid. The staff at the Osborne were friendly, helpful and interesting characters. We struck up a good relationship with some of them. No complaints. The dining room is not huge which restricts the range of available breakfast food but despite the modest choice, we found it perfectly adequate and as well as breakfasts, we ate dinner in the restaurant on three of our evenings. In summary, we had a pleasant stay at the Osborne. We would stay there again and would be happy to recommend it to friends.

Nice clean hotel near the center of Valetta. Not over priced when you look at it's position . Smallish room small bathroom buy very nice.. cosy .. compact.. all the things you would expect to find. Staff very helpful nice place .. would consider a revisit.if we come to stay in Valetta again.. stranded. ??? We missed our flights even though it cost us to rebook flights and an extra hotel stay we still would like to come back ..

I got booked her at last minute and am a regular visitor to Valetta normally staying at excelsior and this is a pretty big step down for not a big difference in price. Location is great but rooms small poly cotton sheets small bed small wardrobe small bathroom. If it was a bargain price then maybe consider as a good location but lacks large hotel slickness or small boutique hotel charm - the guy on the from desk was very helpful

Have just arrived back in the UK after a three night stay at the Osborne Hotel. The hotel itself is conveniently placed just a few minutes walk from Republic Street, one of the main thoroughfares in Valletta. Our room was comfortable and clean with plenty of storage space for clothes. All the staff members at the hotel were extremely polite and professional. Nothing was too much trouble for them. In particular, Xavier, who covered the front desk and who organised our transfer from the hotel to the airport, assisted with the printing of our boarding passes and recommended places to visit. We were half board at the hotel and staff in the restaurant, Bridgitte, Noel and chef Artur were especially helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel as a place to stay in Valletta.

Although we had visited Malta and Valletta before, we didn't know The Osborne Hotel. It has the feel of an old fashioned family run business. Our room was on an upper floor and was modern, well equipped, spotlessly clean and with a really well appointed bathroom. The roof top terrace is a real boon and a pleasant place to relax after a day's sightseeing. The plunge pool is also good for cooling off. The staff at The Osborne are friendly and helpful and its location is ideal.

We were recommended this hotel by a friend, and what a good bit of advice this was. We were delivered straight to the door from the airport by a taxi that was organised by the hotel. We were made to feel welcome straight away by the excellent receptionist and our luggage made secure as we arrived mid morning, 3 hours before our room was available. We had booked room only as we are not breakfast people, and had planned to eat out in restaurants for the four nights that we were there. However, when we saw what the hotel was offering for an amazingly cheap price, we did a deal and ate there every night. It was extremely good value. I am unable to eat Gluten, and once the chefs had been informed of this they ensured that my dietary needs were met perfectly. All the staff were excellent ,without exception. Our room, a suite on the top floor, was roomy and well furnished, the bed was just so comfy and the bathroom facilities ideal, and the room was cleaned and made up each day. The hotel is positioned perfectly for visiting this beautiful city, being only a 10 minute walk away from the center . I would happily recommend this hotel

First of all, I would say the location is central, a few minutes to the bus terminal and the ferry for the 3 cities and Sliema. There are a few things for my rating - 1. On the first evening upon checking in, the staff member at the reception was really nice and friendly. He offered a lot of options for the tour to comino, hop on hop off bus etc. I didn't book any of them. They were no longer that friendly. 2. The hotel is nice decorated, very clean. However, those who work in the restaurant make so much noises while putting away the utensils in the drawers. Breakfast is the same every morning. Capuccino is an extra 1.75 Euro which is fine but most hotels won't charge the extra. 3. There is no hinge at the doors of the rooms. As a result, guests banging the door at 2 am and 6 am. It's really noisy and such noises are not expected in a hotel that looks so nice. 4. I requested late check out the night before from the reception. He told me to ask the following morning as he had no information regarding booking of rooms the following day. When I asked the following morning, I was told that I could leave my luggage at the luggage room and stay outside for as long as I like. He could just tell me no... All in all, it's not a budget hotel... Sometimes hospitality is warmer in a small boutique hotel like the one I stayed in Gozo.
