Nice location and friendly staff but I guess I got unlucky with the room. It had no windows. The shower did not drain properly so the whole bathroom flooded any time.

Would stay again!
Merchant Suites is right in the centre of things, a couple of very nice bars pretty much next door. The rooms are very comfortable and the decor is very nice. Breakfast is delicious.

Great stay
Great quiet boutique hotel, very friendly and helpful staff. Great location in the heart of Valletta. Stayed with family of 4 comfortably for 5 days

Very good 8.0
Great location
Was a shock to find the room we booked lacked a window despite there being no mention of this on the website. Having no natural light made the room feel very enclosed. That being said the staff were very accommodating by upgrading us to a lovely room with an amazing balcony at a discounted upgrade price. Overall great hotel, great location, friendly staff.

Good 6.0
Staff and location excellent—nothing else
The staff is phenomenal and so kind. Location is amazing. Other than that, you can do WAY better. Make sure you really look at the picture that matches your room description. They are so small and stuffy with no window or ventilation. A fan would do wonders. The heater cannot be turned down. Your air source is leaving the door open. Water marks on the walls. Spotless clean (again, amazing staff!) but needs a touch up. 4 stars??? Nooooo way!!! Thought I was splurging on price for a bit extra luxury. Not at all. Just inflated holiday price. LOVED Malta but disappointed in this choice.

Positioning of Overhead and handshower mechanism not to our liking. Would have preferred handheld shower head and no shower above head.
