Good Value For Money
We really enjoyed our stay at the Maltese Sun. It is a quaint, traditional Maltese guest house. The rooms are basic but comfortable and very good value for money. Location is excellent for visiting Sliema, Valletta, St Julians Bay and Paceville. My only advice would be to avoid the breakfast, it is way over priced at 10euros, better off walking down onto the sea front where there is a nice cafe / restaurant, doing much better food for less.

8/10 Very good

Property was in a very convenient location (as suggested by other reviews I'd read), close to Exiles bus stop. My room was on the ground floor, so I could hear when folks were milling about in the hallway, which wasn't ideal but liveable. The room was well appointed and had the bonus of a little courtyard garden, which was nice (subject to the mozzies!) I wasn't a huge fan of the virtual reception, but that's more a personal preference, the place was only manned from 8am to 3pm-ish, when I was not there as I like to get an early start on the day, so there wasn't much scope to get advice / input to my plans. That said any messages left for them were promptly replied to. the upstairs terrace is a lovely space and i had breakfast (only time i did) on the last day, breakfast was serviceable and the service was good. However felt quite steep at €10. On the second to last day I asked them to organise a taxi for the airport for the next day, which they said was done, however the taxi didn't turn up (can't really say who that was down to) and I had to phone up the out of hours number and get a new taxi ordered. A small but unnecessary stress. Overall very happy with my stay.

A lovely little place.
Lovely little place to stay with easy access to the shops, coffee house and transportations links to other places on the island. The room and bathroom were clean and tidy with no issues at all. My breakfast experience was great too, plenty of different foods to choose from whilst eating in the morning sun was a pleasant experience.
