Serene and exuberant place
Quiet location, 8minute walking distance to ferry and seaside. Gorgeous old palace though drafty and sometimes the water pressure was faulty.

2/10 Poor

Double Booked - Very unhappy customers!
My husband had booked this surprise trip for me and him to spend some time together. Upon arriving at the sister hotel, The Victoria, for check in as instructed we were told that our room wasn't ready and that we should come back to reception after 3pm. Just after 3pm we returned to reception and were given a key for room 603. At this point alarm bells rang and we said that we were booked into the Palazzo Cappua in a suite. Immediately another receptionist came over to us and pleaded with us asking us to at least look at the room as it beautiful. There was no explanation as to what had happened but we kept saying that we had booked for the Palazzo Cappua and showed them our booking confirmation. We went to look at room 603 in The Victoria Hotel but were not satisfied that this was of the same quality as the room we had booked and therefore returned to reception extremely unhappy and said that we were not prepared to stay in room 603. It then became clear that our room at the Palazzo had been double booked and was simply not available to us that night as someone was already in it. Very unhappy customers! We then spoke to somebody of a supervisor level to say that he was extremely sorry but the room was not available and he couldn't do anything about that. He offered us a room in the sister hotel, The Palace, and took us to show this room. This was a standard city centre double room which overlooked the Palazzo - how insensitive could they get. Would not return!!

Treat yourself to a stay at a proper Palace
Wouldn't hesitate to stay at the Palazzo next time we come, one of my best decisions of 2015. The only slight downside was the breakfast which was not quite as premium as the room (a little chaotic and unpredictable with the cooked elements particularly). Personally, if there was a room only option I'd go for that next time but the overall price was very good so value was never in question. The concierge and reception staff were never less than fantastic.

Great Hotel but not quite perfect.
very nice hotel. rooms are big and the palace is quite special. would definitely recommend. things to note: cleaning isnt really up to scratch. when we arrived there was a half empty packet of cigarettes on the floor (if i smoked then this would probably be a positive thing :) ). cleaner left the back doors unlocked on our second day. staff from the hospital next door like to have a loud chat at 6:30am right outside your window. not a big problem if youre a good sleeper. if you are any taller than 6'4" then you will need to crouch as the mezzanine floor is quite low. breakfast is a bargain, but the evening buffet isnt really up to scratch. but these are only small issues. the room is great, the palace is nice and its an easy walk to shops or seaside. excellent service from the staff otherwise. Recommended.

Delightful Hotel
This is a lovely hotel situated in a quite street. The suite we had was spacious, clean and beautifully furnished. The bedroom upstairs was very comfortable. The bathroom was well fitted out and a good selection of toiletries were available. The room had tea / coffee making facilities. Breakfast, which was taken in the adjacent Victoria hotel was a hot / cold buffet with a good choice of food. Reception personnel were all very friendly and helpful.

Last night
Our last night after a 3 month stay in Malta. We decided a bit of luxury before the long flight home. Everything was great. If you stay do not miss the Asian Fusion Restaurant on the ninth floor
