Oh happy dayssss
Everything was exceptionally good. Everything was very good. Especially enjoyed the outdoor pool and the view. Breakfast was incredibly delicious. However dinner could be improved as it was below average and not that enjoyable. Additionally the bed sheets could’ve been more soft and comfortable as they were a little rough but that didn’t stop us from enjoying the hotel and our holiday. Service was super and everyone was very friendly. I can only imagine how many workers work there as everyday we saw new faces. We appreciate you guys making our stay the best as possible.

Really nice hotel in great area the only think I didn’t like was very strong smell of cleaning products and for 2 ppl I will like one bigger towel or extra one as one small one was not enough

Good hotel in good location
My girlfriend and I stayed here for 2 nights in June. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The hotel is very comfortable. It has a spacious bar and restaurant and has a decent outdoor swimming pool with a big area around it. We didn't check out the gym or indoor pool. The breakfast is very good. This hotel is in a great location, within 5 mins walk to restaurants, hotels, Sliema ferries as well as bus routes. The staff were professional and courteous at all times. Our room was comfortable. I would stay here again if i was in the area again.

We will definately be back !
The Palace was very comfortable. Rooms spacious and very well equipped. The restaurants were excellent. The Temptasian on the 9th floor was superb. The Talk of the town restaurant was also excellent and we also used the Tabloid, again very good. Pool on roof quiet and clean. Overall a truly excellent hotel. Very very comfortable and well staffed. The housekeeping team were excellent. The church bells didn't bother us. We enjoyed our balcony very much. Tea coffee facility in room excellent.

Stayed in The Palace recently for ten nights in a Superior room. Nice and spacious. Small balcony. Bed mattress a bit soft. Shower not very powerful, towels a bit worn. Room kept very clean by housekeeping ( except for a bowl of fruit that became over-ripe and was not removed) . Robes and slippers provided, also iron and ironing board. Two complimentary small bottles of water daily. Tea making facilities in room. Very nice pool area , two small outdoor pools. Plenty of sun loungers available. Bar/restaurant at poolside.This area also kept very clean. Had food twice in the restaurant/cafe. Food not to my liking but plenty of restaurants and cafes in the area. This is a residential area and is very quiet in relation to traffic noise etc: Staff polite and helpful. Good wifi.The Palace is listed as a 5*Hotel .For anyone who has ever stayed in a 5* this hotel is only really a good 4*. Would I stay here again ? Yes , despite the few niggles I have mentioned which are easily remedied. Would I recommend this Hotel? Yes.

Palace Weekend Break
We enjoyed our short stay in Malta (Weekend break), it was a very short stay over-all, and for the time we spent at the Palace hotel we found the staff to be professional, helpful and very pleasant. The Palace has a nice relaxed breakfast area with indoor and outdoor seating. The three pool areas indoor and both outside were excellent (with regards size and quality of space), I thought particularly good for a city hotel. ** Recommendation for new guests. Do not book an atrium view room. While I have been happy with atrium views for very short breaks in other hotels, the atrium in the palace hotel delivers literally no natural light to the room. If our stay was any longer, I would've needed to move to another room. So unless you have a serious aversion to natural sunlight, (or are perhaps undead), I would recommend you book any other outward facing room at the Palace. Recommendation for the hotel? perhaps you could convert these rooms to house conferencing facilities, or perhaps some other facilities like an wine-bar area or spa? This section of your hotel is really not suited to house guests.

My stay at Sliema
Staff so helpful and full of smiles. Slightly disappointed with food. Mattress quite old and bed soft. Disappointed with sun at all.
