8/10 Very good

The hotel was very well placed & it was easy to get to all the major places in Valletta. The staff were all very friendly & willingly gave advise & help. We enjoyed having the hot tub at the end of the day sightseeing! Would have liked to have the air-con turned on but this was unavailable at this time of the year?

Staff were extremely helpful. Gave advice of what to see and where to go. Ideal for visiting all the historical sites. Would highly recommend the hotel for anyone staying in Valletta. For us it was great since it was the winter months but might be different in the summer with you wanted a pool.
