The Victoria Hotel

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I have visited again the Victoria Hotel and I am pleased to say that they offered first class service. The front office manager is doing a great job! He takes a lot of interest in guest and is always friendly and courteous. The staff at the reception are also always smiling and willing to help. The executive suite at the Victoria is very nice and luxurious. It's a perfect room for a family of 4. Breakfast is also great. I strongly suggest this hotel.

My wife and I stayed for a week in this hotel in Sliema. We liked it quite a lot. Our room was very good, on the 4th floor with a decent view including the sea. The room though needs a bit of refreshment (we heard that some floors were renovated recently, ours certainly not), but is in general ok. The bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is very nice, with black and white tiles. The swimming pool on the 9th floor (outdoor) is beautiful but the water was very cold so we did not use it (and nobody used it – strange that it is not heated a bit). The pool on the 7th (indoor) is ok, though a bit small. The restaurant was crowded every morning, but the food is ok, quite wide variety of everything, so we liked it. The service was good everywhere: in the restaurant, at the reception... All in all, a good old-style hotel which needs to be renovated a bit...

This was our second stay at the Victoria .We stayed in a newly refurbished classic room .Service was very good with pleasant efficient staff .Breakfast was good with omelettes made on request .The weather was not brilliant so we used the indoor pool which was very good .Underground parking only 2euro

We recently stayed at the Victoria Hotel with our family, we had an amazing time and was made to feel so very welcome by all the team at the hotel from check in to check out! The restaurant was a lovely area to enjoy breakfast they had cereals, pastries, cold meta and cheeses, English breakfasts, cakes and fruits more than enough choices and all very well laid out. Lots of choice again for the evening buffet dinners which were also hot and delicious :). The restaurant staff were very attentive and were quick to clear the plates and to take the drinks orders. Charles, Peter, Mumta and all the rest of the team were wonderful hosts and took the time to pass the time of day and always a smile on their faces. It was a real pleasure to dine in the Copperfield. We also had a couple of meals in the bar which were also of very good quality and the portions were huge! Alfred and Bane made a fuss of our 8 year old who though it was fantastic. Again a very welcoming experience. The rooms were very nicely appointed and were cleaned daily always with a polite smile from the housekeeping staff! Overall we would definitely stay here again in a heartbeat we were made to feel so welcomed by your ‘smiley’ helpful staff. The restaurant/bar and reception staff are a credit to your hotel. Hopefully you can pass on our best wishes to the team :)

I have stayed in the Victoria several times when I am on Business in Malta. I either use it or its sister hotel (The Palace, which is connected to the Victoria). I have always been very pleased with both of these hotels and the quality of customer service and staff they have is always very good. The Victoria bedrooms are very nice and I think they may have been refurbished in the last year or two, so they are well fitted out with nice furniture and little extra touches that make it more than a standard hotel. Whilst the buffet Breakfast is good, it is not as great or large as the 5 star Palace (which is understandable). Overall, I am always happy to stay here and have never had a bad nights sleep.

Nice hotel in a good location. Friendly staff, good breakfast and lovely rooftop terrace. Beds were comfortable and rooms were clean. Bathrooms look new and were well equipped with bath and shower. Tea making facilities in room. Only negative was the overpriced chicken wrap ordered by the pool which was full of gristle and horrible bits of chicken, plus chips were cold. The Salisbury Arms just round the corner was a great find for a quick drink. Easy walk down to the sea for ferries to Valletta, which run regularly until midnight if you want to travel there. The hotel sells tour bus tickets, although be warned that they only run every hour so if you get the 11.20am bus from Sliema, it's the last one that does the full tour so you are unable to get off at any stops unless you want to get alternative transport back.

From the moment we arrived, the front desk staff were excellent ,they explained everything..Our room & bathroom lovely and very clean. High standard Restaurant ,lots of mouth-watering food choices, Excellent staff teamwork . We would definitely stay here again, and would strongly recommend it

Although the Victoria is business type hotel our family with an 8year old were made very welcome. From the three ception to the amazing restaurant and bar staff they made our holiday one to remember. The food is amazing done to a high standard at reasonable cost. I would definitely recommend it to all.

Very big rooms though some can be a bit dark if you’re on a lower level - there’s sufficient lights to turn on though. The breakfast buffet is fantastic. Location is very good in Sliema, everything’s easy to reach on foot. Parking was available in the garage but we always found a spot on the street. The staff was always friendly and helpful.

Very good sized room with a walk in shower. Large double beds which are comfortable. Small fridge for personal use, also a quirky safe that was easy to use after you are shown how , the instructions are poor. The hotel is centrally located at the crest of a gentle hill but is very well placed to get access to the ferries, buses etc. Staff are very good indeed and the restaurant staff are very friendly and polite. The roof terrace is pretty good and has nice views. Breakfast is pretty good and you can have ommlettes and eggs freshly prepared. We had half board and the meals follow a weekly cycle so by the 3rd week the evening meals were getting a bit boring. I would recommend the hotel.
