What a find! A perfect boutique hotel.
Lucente is a beautiful building, carefully and tastefully restored by its owners, in a fantastic location right in the centre of Valletta. The owners couldn’t have been more friendly and caring, even down to making the jams and cakes served at breakfast themselves. The beds were the most comfortable we have known and each room is individually designed. What a wonderful ‘find’ Valletta Lucente was and it suited us perfectly. We miss it already and will return.

Pleasant stay
Stopped over in Valletta transiting between Cyprus and UK, revisiting the capital for the first time in many years. Centrally located, the atmosphere in and around the hotel was welcoming and appealing. The room had character while adequately and smartly furnished. Our hosts were charming and helpful, and breakfast was ample, tasty and well laid out. Can happily recommend.

Best-in-class, central hotel with wonderful hosts
I highly recommend this place, as our stay at Valletta Lucente was probably one of the best we've had. Charles and his partner were wonderful hosts, always willing to help and extremely friendly. The property and rooms were, in themselves, pieces of art in a very central location in Valletta (it really is difficult to be more central!). The breakfast was amazing with a large variety of options and freshly made cakes and bakeries - yummy. Our room was very clean and cosy, with an extra bonus point for air conditioning. And the hosts are even planning on adding an elevator in the near future!

Beautiful building, but needs improvements
This hotel could be amazing.  There are a few major issues.  The location is great.  The rooms are beautiful.  The bedding and towels are 5 star.  The problems...breakfast was terrible.  Very little hot water.  And why no bathroom doors?!  We stayed in two different rooms (more on that later), and neither had a bathroom door.  We are a loving couple, but a couple who like some level of privacy.   We stayed in the top floor room, which is three levels.  The first floor is the toilet, and sinks.  Spiral staircase up to an outdoor patio (huge and beautiful, even with no view).  Another round of spiral staircase to the bedroom.  The shower is in the bedroom.  Up the spiral staircase again to the huge top floor patio, with a stupendous view of the water.  Amazing.  The shower featured two rain-shower heads.  Which would have been wonderful, but there isn't enough hot water for one person to take a shower, let alone two.  There are no nightlights, so if you have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, you risk life and limb or you have to turn on the lights.  On our second night the mosquitoes came.  We have traveled around the world, and mosquitoes can be an issue in many places.  But we must have killed about 30.  No sleep what so ever.  We checked the windows and the doors and couldn't figure out where they were coming from.  Finally, at about 6am we found a window, hidden behind a plant on the stairway.  No window pane.  Just an open window.  We got no sleep and request

Fantastic charming find in top area near it all
We splurged and stayed in one of the top suites with a roof deck. Actually, we had TWO roof decks! Very nice location and nice views. But be careful, there is a narrow spiral staircase that may be scary for older guests inside the room that you'll need to navigate to get to bedroom area.

A rare gem antique and boutique chic!
This is more than a hotel. It’s a 450 year old palazzio with every room redone in a unique and fabulous way filled with antiques but modern and chic at the same time. The owner, Charlie, and receptionist, Sunita, are charming and welcoming. The hotel is on a quiet pedestrian street. Write to Charlie and he will arrange pick-up at the airport (€20). We left before breakfast but Sunita left us a wonderful selection of her home made pastries and several pieces of fruit. Valletta is so beautiful and so easily walkable. This is the perfect lodging. One last note: Charlie has a shop in the lobby where he sells unique and one of a kind pottery hand painted by his 23 artists. You’ll definitely want to check that out. We purchased a fabulous piece and we’re lucky enough to meet the artist. Don’t miss this place. We were treated to a tour of several rooms. Spring for the penthouse with its outdoor patio and views of the Grand Harbor!

We'd stay there again in a heartbeat!
We were very glad that we chose Valletta Lucente for our accommodation in Valletta. The location is ideal. The hosts and staff are charming and very helpful. Breakfasts were generous and delicious with a number of homemade items. The room was gorgeous with only a slight lighting glitch indicating a nod toward form over function. We quickly forgot about it. If we ever travel to Valletta again we will definitely stay there.
