Cosy stay, highly recommend!
Wonderful stay at the Maltese Sun. Room was clean and spacious. Wifi worked well. Breakfast was simple but plentiful. Located at a residential neighbourhood in Sliema, it was very quiet at night so I had great sleep every night. Very close to major bus stations, extremely convenient

A very pleasant quiet hotel, good location. Simple check-in. Helpful staff but no desk assistance from mid-afternoon.

When we arrived there was no reception as this closes at normal check in time. We got a shock when we got to the room as it was a large bed and 20 cm space on either side. No work space and only a powerpoint next to the bed so could not really iron shirts. Fortunately the manager was happy to give us a larger room although it meant moving after two nights in a room that was still under renovation and smelt of paint. Breakfast is good, the place is close to the beach and restaurants and once it is better established it should be nice to stay there.
