Great hotel. Lovely rooms. Small but clean and well decorated. My only annoyance is the shuttle to the airport provide by the hotel is a rip off. According to the hotel information, you can book an airport shuttle for 1-3 people for €20. After midnight there is an extra €5 charge..night rate. We booked a car for 2 people for 23:30 on a Saturday evening. The car arrived at 23:20....great. Dropped of at the airport at 23:50 only to be told that the night charge applied and the fare was €25. All this, considering you can walk 10 mins to the taxi rank by the bus station and get a pre-paid taxi for €15. Felt a bit conned. Not sure if this was down to driver(strangely accompanied by a young female helper) or the hotel. Spoilt what would've been a perfect stay in a beautiful historic city and an otherwise lovely hotel. I would appreciate a response from the hotel management.

I agree that this was an excellent location, and our room as well was very small and didn't have a window (except for a small one into the alley). The wifi in the room didn't work. however the front desk was very helpful in letting us use their computer and printing out our airline boarding passes. We skipped the breakfast as it was quite expensive and we ate elsewhere. The A/C worked well. The cleaning was mediocre. I noticed that our tea/coffee water warmer was partially filled when we arrived, and that the trash was not emptied daily. No big deal, but still. Overall, I would stay here again. It is a reasonable cost for the location and maybe if I had asked for a different room I would have gotten it...

Excellent location within easy walking distance of Republic Street (the main street in Valletta), and with friendly and helpful staff, but ... our room (112) was not good. The door was only about 60 cm wide, leading into a corridor of about the same width before you get to the main part of the room. The room itself was very dark with little daylight as the window was around a corner and just looked out onto a lightwell with noisy drainage pipes from the rooms above and extract vents from the kitchen. Also, the breakfast was disappointing, with over-cooked egg and a scarcity of fresh fruit, which is unforgivable as there is an abundance of fruit in Malta.

This hotel has a perfect location and is obviously very popular. However this is making them complacent. I have on booking asked for a quiet room - that was completely ignored and I was put on the first floor in possibly the noisiest room. When I complained it was ignored. The balcony was filthy with ash and debris. The Saturday the room was not cleaned. Bedcovers just pulled over, basin not cleaned, towels not replaced. Breakfast is also disappointing. Fruit prepared long in advance. Scrambled eggs were rubbery and inedible. On the food buffet there were spills of food and dirty spoons.

Stayed 2 nights ( 150 euros pp incl breakfast) room 103. The room was well furnished with plenty of mod cons and excellent sized bathroom with a stunning view. The Hotel is clean and tidy with a nice bar to relax in with a reasonable priced drinks and cocktails well served by Simon. One reception staff member is rather off putting as we checked in and felt quiet unwelcomed. Another, will try to flog you every trip on the island and but if that's what you came for then fine. Food is all rather thrown together and wouldn't really recommend an evening spent there as lacks atmosphere, choice and service a bit hit & miss. Other wise a good place for a few nights . There is a small pool on 6th floor but no sun loungers...

It's fair to say that this hotel is in a very good location to explore Valletta. I stayed here for 3 nights, but for me it was long enough. Staff were friendly and the room clean, but I was glad for bringing my earplugs. The partition walls were thin and the door hinges on the room designed with such a strong coil that it's impossible not to be worked up by the slam of someone coming back to their room on the same floor - even with earplugs in! I was room only but tried the breakfast once. For 10 euros it was very poor, reminiscent of my youth in Little Chef. For those not accustomed with this British delicatessen, this is where you would have gone for the free lollipop at the end rather than the meal itself. If Valletta is very booked up when you are looking to arrive I'd suggest you consider this hotel. Otherwise there must be (I am assuming) better options. Alternatively base yourself across the port in Sliema.

The most positive to say about Hotel Osborne is its location in the middle of Valetta. Situated in an old house on a narrow Valetta street it also has atmosphere. But it is difficult to reach by car, with no parking. The breakfast was bellow average and the staff not very friendly and not very organised The receptionists were mostly interested in selling different tours to us that we were not interested in. And the original high ceiling rooms had been divided into two floors which meant that our room had only a half window situated at the floor level. But the rooms where well cleaned and had standard equipment.

Beautiful rooms in central Valleta. everything needed for a city break including full selection of breakfasts - hot and cold meats and eggs, cereal, toast, fruit, juices, selection of teas, coffee and hot and cold milk. The staff were friendly and polite and had lots of top tips on places to eat and sights to see both in Valleta and Medina. We paid an extra €25 for a late check out as had late flight but normal check out at midday so no rush on last day.

I have now stayed at the Osborne twice while I have been in Valletta on business. The staff are always friendly and reception in particular have really helped me on this visit. Rooms are simple but nicely decorated and comfortable. Air con, decent shower - all the things that help. I will use the Osborne again.

I booked Osborne Hotel as i was on business nearby in Valletta and was lucky to find it to be in a great location and short walk within all the major sights.. It's a decent hotel but with a great bonus rooftop pool where where the free wifi is still strong so I could work and take on the sun and aerial views too.. The room was adequate, service too.. a popular hotel for the holiday makers too.. food wise I just had breakfast which was ok.. nothing amazing but was adequate..
