This is a beautiful hotel. The concierge was amazing - we arrived late at night and he was watching for us! The room is wonderfully appointed - much more luxurious than we expected for this price. We wish we were staying longer instead of catching a cruise today.

Truly lovely hotel
I very much enjoyed this hotel. The staff is very service-forward and helpful. It's quite lovely, the rooms are well-appointed and stylishly decorated. The location is fantastic. My only complaint was that the working condition of all electronic components in the rooms should be checked out - not all of the light switches worked and sometimes the tv would not turn on. But these are really minor complaints, as I would still choose to stay here again on a future visit to Valletta.

The hotel staff were incredibly helpful and polite. Our rental car fell through at the last minute and the hotel arranged for a car to be delivered to the hotel for us within a few hours. Breakfast was perfect. Highly recommend!
