6/10 Good

The Barrister is an average townhouse conversion hotel, with all the attendant benefits and drawbacks. Some of the rooms are big, other tiny. Soundproofing works in parts of the building, in others it doesn't. Everything in central Valletta is within a few minute's walk, but it's also in close proximity of bars playing loud music late into the night. However, these are things you expect and accept - still, breakfast was done on the cheap, no questions about that.
