    Stay away due to lack of service!
    First of all, my room wasn't ready upon check-in and it was delayed an hour, so I could check-in only 1.5 hours normal check-in time. No apology or reason given... Then there was only one elevator that was working so it really took super long to get up and down... And on my second day, the cleaner had still not cleaned my room at 16:40. I spoke with the reception about it and they seemed to not really care. I don't recommend this hotel to be honest!

    Decent hotel let down by poorly executed renovatio
    Newly renovated but poorly executed. Paint stains all over the place and and poor fitting of a lot of pieces. Breakfast was a big letdown. Quality over quantity is an advice. Room was clean but had poor lighting over workspace. Poor evacuation of moist in the bathroom. Good location, friendly staff but needs more attention to the execution of the renovation which appears to be nearly completed. In my view a decent 3 star hotel with room for improvement but not a 4 star hotel.

    Worth staying, ideal location for food and travel.
    Great location. Room good size. Nice balcony. Decent breakfast. Issue was the bathroom. Good size but smelled of drainage. Door was locked and only 2 nights so wasn’t worth bothering to change. Bed was comfortable. Uk plugs can be used. Service was very pleasant, reception and requests all catered for.

    All good except room service
    Only let-up was room service. No answer when I rang... and while you're ask to call the front desk as an alternative, their only recourse was to send me back to the line with no answer. If there's not going to be anyone to pick up - why even have the number available for guests to call?

    Fantastic friendly hotel
    The staff were really friendly and went above & beyond to ensure our trip was the best it could be....the pool & hot tub were lovely & clean and if I had to look for a negative it would be nice to have a sauna as there is plenty of room and also supply of towels at the pool but that didn’t spoil our stay in any way

    Must try harder
    Was a very nice hotel ashame the staff at reception did not have a clue what was going on. We also requested a bottle of Champagne to be in the room when we arrived which was totally forgotten even though it has been added to the room. We also nearly got charged twice for Christmas lunch and had to protest that we payed in advance for it. Must try harder

    Best hotel in Sliema 💕
    The hotel was amazing - very pleased with my choice. Room was top quality and luxurious with a massive super king bed (v comfortable). Complementary water bottle daily was a nice touch. View was outstanding from the balcony on the 10th floor. Great service from staff who helped me book a taxi to and from airport. Pool was lovely .....and a surprise hot tub (although I can’t remember seeing it in the advert). 5 minute walk to ferry to Valletta and shopping centre. Unlimited breakfast was absolutely fantastic and the choices were great 👍 something for everyone. No need for adapter plugs as the electrical sockets are same as in UK. Would recommend this hotel as it was amongst the nicest hotels I had seen during my stay in Malta and certainly the best in Sliema.
