Lobby Late night noise - and wake up call did not come as requested.
Hotel was located in tourist area. Nice resturants nearby. Hotel breakfast was good and inexpensive. A bit noisey in the mornings (believe some renovation work was underway). Air conditioning inside room was weak.
Nothing about the Hotel. Maybe the location Dirty room. Smell of smoke from cigaretts all the time. Aircon not working. The room looked nothing like the pictures. Smelly beds. I stayed in a lot of hotels around the world. And this for sure cant be a 4 star hotel maybe 2star. I booked a 4 star hotel with booking.com two weeks ago in Valencia that was exellent.
Central location and friendly staff. The rooms are in need of redecoration. On the second day the lift did not work.
The location was okay and the view from the rooftop was nice. The hotel is not clean at all and you have to pay for every service, in the offer I booked the wifi was for free but when we arrived there we had to pay for the wifi. Also we ordered a plate and a fork for the room and we had to pay 2 euros for that! It was really not a nice experience at all.
Location is really very good. I don´t know how other people and their experiences, but this is NOT 4star rated hotel...
Well located and excellent value for off season rate Could do with a refurb - listed as 4 star in reality 3 star
Good price, value for money. A/c was a blessing after walking around in heat all day. Location was good, close to busses and tours, shopping/eating. Tv didn't work well.
The staff was really kind none
poor air-con, this has been an issue for the past three years!
the most thing i liked about the hotel is its location which is close to the cafes and the shoping area the size of the room,it is very small.the AC was not cooling
View from 7th floor sea view room, and terrace at breakfast, of harbour and Valletta.
Good location. Easy access to all nice breakfast rooftop Extremely noisy. Uncomfortable. Unwelcoming
The room was very big with also the kitchen corner, table, sofa, but furniture is quite modest. The cleanliness in general was fair, towels and sheet seemed not washed carefully. The remote control and the TV commands didn't work.
The hotel had a good location close to some nice restaurants and shops. It was quite central so easy to get to Valetta and St Julian's. The hotel had a nice position looking over Silema harbour but unfortunately we didn't have a room with a view. Our room had no natural light as the window was small and looked out into the centre of the hotel. There was no balcony which we wouldn't have minded if there had been better facilities at the hotel. The roof terrace on the 8th floor was small although it did have some sun beds. The jacuzzi was tiny and looked dirty so no one used it that we saw of. Our actual room was quite basic. There appeared to be some kind of leak at the end of one of the beds which the hotel staff covered by pulling the bed out further. I also noticed that one of our bed sheets was dirty and had to ask the cleaner to change it.
Good location Noisy sea view room/Poor shower facility/Very poor breakfast selection
Very convenient location. Toilet was basic but clean. The rooms are old, and there was no non-smoking rooms (there was a furniture/smoke smell in the room, but still tolerable). TV quality is poor. Have to be very careful with remote control (one wrong button and it's pay-tv).
location, room with the balcony, close to public transport and eateries room below breakfast area very noisy, smell in bathroom,
The hotel is in an ideal position to visit Valletta and for seeing Sliema. Our room (612) had an excellent view over the harbour. It was in a quiet area but only a few mins away from the busy nightlife. There is a bus stop almost right outside in either direction from the hotel. We were in the 6th floor extension and the pressure in the shower was not strong enough to rinse soap out of my hair, which is thick. There was a cotton bud under the bed when we arrived and it was still there when we left, there were also hairs in the bath plug. Breakfast was not that interesting but at the price of the room was not expecting much anyway.
the location is quite centric and the reception staff was very polite and helpful.
The location was perfect. Step out the front door and you are on the waterfront, 5 minutes from the ferry, and water excursions.
Convenient location. Friendly staff. Very poor breakfast - very limited range, and same every day. Very noisy fan in bathroom which couldn't be switched off.
Good value, good location, comfortable in room heating didn't work, staff couldn't answer a question about where the nearest gym was, the room was very noisy at night because of a very noisy fan or dryer type device in the next room.
very clean and a good position none
good gym facilites but it is not a 5 star hotel by international standards. room was not cleaned until 7.30 pm on one occassion and rest of stay usually after 3pm. did not replenish tea and coffee supplies had to ask ofr them each day. no hotel dressing gowns provided as stipulated in literature(telling of facilites) that was missing from room unitl 2 days before we left.
The fee upgrade to a junior suite, the friendliness of the staff upon arrival The overall impression given by the hotel is not the one of a 5 stars, from the bed and furnitures of the room to the various common spaces and pools. It looks more like a 4 stars or a very good 3 stars.
Surrounded by buildings under contruction. No view at all.
Quiet at night even though in St. Julian's; View from the balcony is nice; Spacious rooms; Rooms need renovation; New towels need to be purchased as the ones available are already worn-out; Type of room whether twin or king should be clarified upon room reservation.
A very nice sea-side restaurant Paranga. The room really smells - that wet sort of smell embeded in the old sea-side hotels. Very annoying.
Comfortable and well equipped There were problems with interent connection, lack of access to TV channels and the air conditioning started leaking in the middle of the night.
Suitable location, our room on the 10th floor facing the internal garten was quiet with comportable temperature without using any air conditioning Cleaningness of the pool, the pool area, toiletts and showers.
The staff were trying very hard to make up for the short comings from the hotel facilities. The rooms had a smell of dampness and the location of the hotel was in the busiest night spot in Malta. You would probably enjoy this if you were a teenager, however at our age it was a bit too much to bear.
Not enough pool. DIdn't like the area it was located near.
Amazing property! Wonderful service and very delicious food at two hotel restaurants, I would absolutely stay here again! The staff was wonderful, some of the best service I have ever received and I travel all over the world!
Friendly, helpful staff with exactly the right balance of attitude - not stiff and formal, not too familiar. No complaints.
Perfect hotel. Special thanks to Nadine from front desk for patience and availability, without her we could have not rented a car.
The hotel would have been fine - if it was a 3-star hotel. However, dinner at the Tiki Restaurant was fantastic. The bed was terribly uncomfortable, and service was mediocre - we waited over 30 minutes for our drinks from the poolside service. The buffet breakfast was included in our room price, but it was one of the worst meals I've had in a long time. At the price, this is not a hotel i could recommend.
Nice pool They charge you every little thing such as business center without telling me that they have the charge for business center (right after I went to the business center to print my boarding pass they were trying to charge me for 5 euro plus paper) and they claimed that ice bucket was missing after we left hotel and flew back to New York. They charge us for that which we have never seen while we stayed there. They told us that they have inventory list before people come in but who steals the ice bucket? If we need one we don't take the used one. For me this was not the pleasant stay. I had to deal with the bill for the amenities which we had never had. I thought this is 5 star hotel but I would rather stayed 3 star hotel and didn't have to deal with all the burden after I left. Never stay here again.
Beautiful Hotel with a great location, nice swimming pool and a nice selections of restaurants. Room had a terrible view and the carpet had some stains on it.
Proximity to bus terminal. Nice swimming pool. Very good restaurant. We had a nice stay in this hotel.
How friendly and attentive the hotel staff were.
We liked everything - room, food, swimming pool, service
Everything, an extremely well run hotel, nothing was too much trouble for the friendly and attentive staff
Phenomenal harbour and sea view, excellent facilities (impressive location of the swimming pool and private beach for the hotel guests), good level room services, useful location within the city, comfortable and quiet rooms, and attentive and friendly staff. For a five-star I found it very surprising to find my minibar empty.
Fantastic pool area with restaurant and bars. Wonderful service throughout the holiday.
The location was good and the Spa was excellent. The staff were a little arrogant at times. I put this down to the hotel trying to maintain 5 star status.
The view from our balcony, pool area, local amenities and the early evening live music played from the foyer balcony We were first shown a room at the front of the building, the balcony and view not as good as the room we moved to. To cater for all preferences it would be nice to have double rooms available at the front and back, and twin rooms available for business people front and back.
Bayview Restaurant was buffet only which is a shame for the restaurant with the best views of all the hotels' restaurants
Large rooms. Very nice poolarea!! Good value for money. We got a good price trough booking.com The room was very dirty when we arrived. The hotel in general needs some upgrading.
size of room size of balcony
fantastic friendly hospitality...definitely made up for shortcomings, very child friendly room rather small, in need of modernisation. Breakfast not 5-star
Location was very good. The poolarea was fantastic.
The room / suite was very comfortable The room was not ready when we arrived, even though we arrived well after allowed check in time.I had to call twice to get bathrobe. Heavy rain caused a leak in the ceiling.
This is my second time staying in the Corinthia St George,St Pauls Bay.. We had a very enjoyable week spent mostly sunbathing and swimming. The hotel buffet is very good.They have a nice gym and indoor pool which we used in the evenings.I like the Corinthia and hope to stay there on my next trip.
Opulant surroundings and quality of service from the staff corridors were not kept clean. Bath was in poor condition
Ther wasn't any tea or coffee making facilities in the room, I feel this is essential.
As someone who likes to hop around hotels I ended up staying here for a night. The adjacent hotel, that guest have access to, has a very nice pool area and the staff at both hotels are very accommodating. As someone that jumped around a lot of hotels in St Julian's I can assure you this is not the one that you will get the most bang for your buck. It is old, the exterior and interior need to be redone and the pool area for the hotel is ok at best, having a tiny pool, smaller than typical ones in your backyard. If the price is similar stay at the Radisson or if you don't need a resort stay at the Argento.
Pleasant room with a sea view and balcony which had sun most of the day. Room was clean, well maintained and comfortable. Ineffecient ventillation/air conditioning. Despite the fact it was autumn, the room was always too hot to sleep when I returned on an evening. The ventillation system was noisy. Due to mosquitos it was not practicable to leave the patio door open.
Location by the sea. Good breakfast. Very friendly staff. After the high season the childrens play area had apparently been closed, which was a shame as we were lacking things to do when it rained for a couple of days during our stay. Not quite the family hotel I imagined it would be. Nice hotel though. For some reason there was a smell of cigarette smoke in the bathroom for the whole 6 days we stayed there. I have no idea where this smell originated from.
Reception staff were very nice Room stunk like cigarette smoke after cleaning.
The comfort and facilites are what you would expect from a 5 star establishment. The location is perfect. Just a short walk around the bay to where the action is, clubs pubs restaurants etc, but far enough that there was no passing traffic or disturbance. Full choice of breakfast, English or continental All rooms have a sea view, some better than others, ours was fine! Our room was close to the lobby area. Guests arriving late could keep you awake. some of the facilites spa and indoor pool were located in the sister hotel next door, probably why the Marina's rates are less
The hotel was directly on the coast with wonderful views. We had a good size room with a very comfortable bed and the bathroom was modern and clean. The hotel was very convenient for public transport as well as for local shops and a choice of restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was a very good choice for breakfast. Overall we very much enjoyed our stay. Just one or two points worth mentioning: the airconditioning system in the room worked well in the day but was largely ineffective during the night, resulting in a stuffy room. Disappointingly, breakfast was served in a rather cold marquee, which, admittedly we were there in October, but I think a greater effort could have been made to provide a larger indoor eating area. On the days when it was warm enough we could eat outside on the wonderful terrasse.
Staff were very friendly and helpful Hotel is very big and making your way to the lobby from your room can take a while.
Good breakfast selection and location (over looking St Julians Bay). Access to sunbeds and private section of sea. No, all in all decent value for money; it was my fifth stay at the hotel.
I enjoyed the location. Thank you AnnMarie for your "awesome service." Limited shuttle service to and from Valletta and Sliema, hint, people need transportation during the weekends. I would consider checking the temperature on your cold items that you serve for breakfest. The yougart I had was not cold at all, a breeding ground for bacteria growth and spoilage, and my tea kettle I had something floating in it. Paying attention to details will make the difference.
Friendliness and efficiency of reception and concierge staff Good tables cleared and reset very slowly at breakfast time
It is nice and good hotel in excellent location near good night life area, the room is good and has more enough space, comfortable bed and good bathroom. sometimes there are sounds from above as furniture movement.
good value for money, because of special price. Did not read others wiews
The pool area and sun deck and very nice, and the food, especially breakfasts were superb Extremely noisy neighbours, playing load music late at night
Just returned from Hotel Hilton Malta feeling very relaxed. Hotel was great with excellent restaurants on site and within walking distance at the marina and nearby Spinola Bay,
Scenery was pleasent but it was a little bit uphill slope to climb! The hotel. Generally if I go to malta I would prefer it again.
the atmosphere was great and relaxing and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly the water was a bit expensive...make sure that you purchase it from the grocery next door....bottle of water in hotel cost euro 4.5
The executive lounge was very good for breakfast and pre dinner drinks, felt that it should have stayed open for after dinner drinks.Good location. Access to certain parts of the building required changing lifts.
A very good hotel with good facilities. Clean and accommodating staff. May be a little difficult to access sea due to sea conditions. However, 4 large swimming pools available
Large and quiet room, nice decor, location next to the bay. Very good Thai restaurant. Poor quality of breakfast. Pooor quality of dinner in the main restaurant. Sheets were not changed daily. Very aggressive communication such as "you mustn't touch anything in the minibar or you will be charged a fortune". The hotel blocked 400eur on my credit card for two weeks.
amazing choice of breakfast! great location and nice pool area. Great being able to sit outside for a drink in the evening. towels and bed a bit hard, decor old fashioned - could have made more use of fabulous position
the staff where very nice polite and helpfull, the entertainment was good and the bar at the deck was excellent
Staff were all v. v. friendly, location, breakfast is one of the best Hilton breakfasts I've had, pools, good offer on the spa on a rainy day. Room cleaning was not up to scratch, it was of the 'lick and a promise' variety. Bed changed only once during 7 nights' stay, @ €415 per night...Housekeeping walks straight in without knocking, which is really not on. Car park is a very strange affair with hidden lifts and level 5 inside the hotel is level 0 in the car park, utterly confusing.
Everything was excellent, staff, rooms, location, they had great half/full package deals. Kids had lots to do and really enoyed themselves. Lots of sport facilities so we did lots of sports, could eat well and did not put on a gramme of weight!!!
Absolutely everything - from check-in to check-out! The staff were professional and genuinely friendly. The room was large and comfortable and we had a side view of the pool and the bay. Even if we had a minor problem or question, it was immediatly taken care of. The indoor pool and the gym was excellent, as was the steam room and sauna. Breakfast was yummy, drinks at the bar were classy and the one dinner we had at the hotel was delicious. The gymand indoor pool were not open til after 4pm on New Year's Day (after we had checked-out).
Friendliness off staff, excellent service and food, comfort and ambiance of hotel
The staff and facilities at the hotel were excellent. Very clean hotel and helpful staff. The lounge bar with piano is gorgeous. Can't say anything negative about the hotel.
i did't like the fact that they block 150 euros on my credit card when we arrive for the future expensis during my stay. i never heard of such thing before!
Staff are excellent - very friendly and helpful Very Very poor value for money compared to the Intercontinental just round the corner. We stayed in a Tower room which leaked water from the rain and required a new carpet. For the same money at the Inter we could have stayed in a family room and used the VIP lounge. Breakfast was expensive and evening meal was poor for the money. We actually ended up eating at the sports bar in the Inter for 2 nights which has a better menu and far better value for money
Clean and nice hotel. The Reef Club was not open, and they did not inform about this. Even the staff at the orher pool did not know there was such a club! It was supposed to open next week, but seeing the spot, I doubt it...
Wonderful hotel, excellent facilities and friendly staff.
The hotel staff made the stay pleasant. Enjoyed the lobby bar/restaurant with live piano undertainment in the evening. The wardrobe facilities including the sauna by the indoor pool needs upgrading. The fact that it also is used by none hotel residents makes it to much public. Quite a few people were making their full morning toilet.
did'nt a room with full sea view even though start of season
It was a really relaxing and enjoyable experience. The hotel had every facility possible, with lots of pools, deckchairs, several good quality restaurants,, a gym, shop and hairdresser. The buffet breakfast was magnificent. Our room looked out over the sea and it was quiet. The staff were friendly and obliging. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The beds in the room were very narrow single beds. I would have expected two queen size beds or at least king singles for that price. The bathroom is tired and needs retiling. The toilet leaked and it smelled.
Location, great view , comfortable room Didn`t feel as luxurious as expected for 5 star hotel
It was very expenisve to eat and drink in the hotel
excellent room service, friendly staff, terrace, sea view location a bit far away from mainstream cultural, tourist, shopping and night life.
Good location, nice rooms Staff not very helpful, food average, courtesy bus offered costs more than public transport
The view from the bedroom, the space in the foyer, the comfort of the hotel. Happy with hotel
Friendliness of staff they were great!!! Absolutely nothing and we have been travelling and staying in hotels for 3 mths and this was the best - the people made it
The massages Loud whistling noise from closed windows when the wind was blowing outside.
Kindness of Hotel staff Presence of many ants in room 634, however in good igienic conditions
Food menu was horrible and they tried to charge me for mini bar items upon check-out. I didn't even know there was a mini bar. .
The staff was efficient yet pleasant at all times. The wardrobe was not well designed. There was no place to hang long items. They use those hangers that are hooked to the bar. The bar went from front to back. Making use of the closet difficult. The furnishing were comfortable. But we had a junior suite with one easy chair and a desk chair ... and three ottomans! Another easy chair or sofa would have been more comfortable. There certainly was enough space. The room included a nice balcony overlooking the sea -- yet the be for some strange reason was placed so that one could not enjoy the view from the bed ... and given that there was only one easy chair ...! In regard to the question below about 'guest reviews' there weren't any the hotel only opened at the end of August 2007.
very clean good quality nice people things that are not finished i.e. no movies or internet in the rooms
The bed was very comfortable and the staff were great. The hotel was obviously incomplete. The water pressure was inadequate, the room was not finished (building wise) and therefore not very clean. I would also suggest carpet in the bedrooms instead of tiling as this impacts on comfort. The facilities that were mentioned were also not available yet as the hotel is not finished. Definitely not up to 5 star standards.
The staff was excellent! It was a really nice hotel, will definitely go back there.
Design Hotel in the heart of Sliema, a little bit up the hill from the waterside promenade, great view from the higher floor rooms and the rooftop / rooftop pool. Their label of being a "design hotel" seems a bit overemphasized and can lead to certain excesses, some shortfalls with the breakfast. Cleanliness is not really a strength of all the Maltese Hotels in general.
Friendly competent staff, value for money Room service food from the Oriental restaurant was very poor
Friendly staff The shower was poor and not functioning properly
We had a high floor room which meant a fantastic view over the city from our balcony. The Asian restaurant at the hotel tried to serve our food too quickly and one of our party suffered food poisoning
The central location of the Hotel makes it easy to visit Sliema and Valetta, near to many shops or restaurants. The breakfast (continental buffet) served during our stay (nov 2010) was absolutely not at the level of the 5 stars of this hotel. No fresh juice, poor presentation of so-called fresh fruits (apples were brown, almost burned in their juice), whereas Malta has plenty of ressources to serve them al over the year. The real good stuff was the bread choice, but for a 14€ BF, it looks nevertheless very unsifficient for this class of hotel
Comfortable beds, good service There is a motion detector in the room, with a bright red light which shines if you move also at night. It keeps you awake.
The location is perfect. One thing that is important, is the free car parking for the quests of the hotel. But most we enjoyed the indoor pool and Spa. Very relaxing experience!
The Pool, gym and spa facilities were very good and it has a large sun terrace. It is also well located near the waterfront and lots of bars and restaurants. Building site outside our room woke us up at 7am every morning. Quality of building work and finish in hotel was sometimes poor, but this seems to be a feature of Maltese workmanship generally. Our toilet flush broke and had to be fixed. Our room safe also broke and had to be fixed. Speed of response from hotel staff could have been better.
The Hotel was well located, and of a good standard all round. Staff were friendly when spoken to. The music in the lifts would drive anyone insane....all the guests we shared the lifts with felt the same. The staff were not friendly, or outgoing personalities, and very much waited on us as patrons to make conversation with them. The rooms had very little information if at all any about the area and services offered at the hotel. No daily weather updates etc.... all being said though not the worst I have experienced ether
We loved all of our time at Le Meridien Hotel. It is close to our house and we decided to spend the first few days of our honeymoon there before flying to Rome. My new wife and I enjoyed every moment and look forward to going again as soon as we can. Nothing at all..we we entirely happy with everything and hope to spend our anniversaries there too
Lovely room. Good location, Free parking in busy area. Good Gym/Spa. Limited room service menu.
the hotel was nice and clean the elevators system needs to be fixed. it takes forever to get elevator and then it makes frequent stops when it doesn't need to
clean and spacious room, great views over st julians bay. tried to book a massage for our last day the day before but there were already no available slots
The service,friendleness and cleanliness. N/A
The room was good and clean The food. Especially the room service menu.
all services of a palace at a good price. children policy very aggressive is also a major selling point.
The professional staff, location & ambiance. There was nothing we did not like.
Helpful staff, friendly front desk, room with a view, spacious and comfortable room, good security, quiet and relaxing, good value for the price
Location was good. The place was overpriced. Our room was old and the bedding smelt. We were charged an additional fee for a roll away and never advised. Outgoing phone calls were absurdly overpriced. The staff was stiff and cold. The food was awful. The location was great
I enjoyed the meal, swimming pool, convenient to go out,etc. It is not the hotel's fault that the TV had a problem during my staying.
Spacious room, Lot's of choice on tv channels, Hotel well positioned for nightlife, Gym & leisure suite Breakfast was very average for a 4 star hotel
Location and position near to sea The closest beaches are privately owned by ohter hotels which means people are forced to pay extra to use the facilties. The hotel should endeavour to reach an agreement with these other hotels to allow its own guests access free of charge as part of the package.
Hotel was great! Staff were pleasant and helpful. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable. No tea or coffee making facilities in room. Only available through room service, which, although not expensive is awkward, especially if you want a cup of tea in the middle of the night.
proximity, very clean, people nice, breakfast good but stops at 10, too early ! it is a fake doulbe bed !! 2 single ones close only !!! i hate when hotels do like that ! ! + in the morning the mention do not disturb was on the door, but the maid knocked on the door !!! breakfast closes too early ! should be until 11, not 10. for the same price, i will go to the meridien by adding 50 euros, for sure !
nothing! dirty bed sheets, small poky room and rude staff dirty bed sheets, small poky room and rude staff
The view and size of the room were terrific. The staff could be more courteous for a 4 start hotel! The cleaning service was poor, the bathroom amenities were extremely poor. Overall it didn't feel like a 4 start hotel at all.
The staff and the facilities The surroundings, too noisy and durty
The room was very small, me and my cabin bagage and it was full. It seems to be a place not reformed since 80s, and it need it. Very old and cracked forniture and toilet. Breakfast options are very poor.
The reception staff were very helpful in terms of my questions, giving advice on how to go places around Malta. The big problem for me was Internet access: I couldn't get the wi-fi access that was advertised on the top floor of the hotel and the card system was very expensive (ie 3 euros for 75 minutes, 2 euros for 20 minutes, but was never for the full amount, always less). Moreover, the location wasn't ideal for me, as I was in Malta for work and had to go back to the capital Valletta to go anywhere. Next time I'll stay in Valletta as the surrounding district of Sliema is pretty run-down and there's not much to do, ie. no real beaches or historical sites to visit.
Its location is excellent and the view from the balcony over the harbour is spectacular. Very convenient for everything.The breakfast was large. The good thing about this hotel is its location. Smoking is allowed in the bedrooms and our room smelled of cigarette smoke. The hotel appears to be in a 60's/70's time warp and furniture and fittings reflect this. Also, although it was not cheap (Euro 100 per night) it had a very high proportion of young, backpacking guests, which was unexpected. On two of the three night we stayed there, there was no fresh fruit at breakfast.
The view from the hotel was impressive. We stayed on the sixth floor. And of cause the location. The breakfast buffet was extremely boring.
Leaving! Wasn't what i expected it to be for the money paid. No air con as stated it had. It was actually a heater, which wasn't a lot of use with temperatures around mid 30'sc. The room was very dirty ie. mucky walls, headboard on bed was black with dirt, torn stained matteress and furniture from the 1960's. I thought when i walked in the room i'd stepped into a cheap B & B in Blackpool. View from window was to a dirty courtyard which comprised of waste food, knives and forks, used condoms all thrown down on to the roof below and on courtyard. The breakfast offered on the B & B basis was only toast or cereal, very basic indeed. I paid extra for the hotel as it was supposedly in a good location. It was a huge dissapointment and i will never be wasting my money to go there again.
Position in town of Sliema. Extreme friendliness of staff. Easy access to all services to visit all parts of island.
I liked the room, food and staff. I was made to feel very welcome no english channels on TV
Location, in front of Sliema Sea, it's located in a very animated street with lots of cafés and terraces. Unfortunately, almost everything. Small elevators, a bedroom with accepts (alcatifa) (which is no longer used), very few light, very bad matresses (bad for your back) with no dais (estrado), no remote control for TV, bathroom with no bidet, just a small light, no water pressure in the bath and in the washing closet, poor breakfast and everywhere we go a bad smell of fried food mixed with mold (mofo) of a building and structure that has not followed tourism evolution and minimum conditions to be given to its clients. It seems Marina Hotel has stopped in time. Not to repeat, not to return, not to advise to anyone, that's for sure.
Price, location, friendliness of staff, adapter plug rental, restaurants around. Water pressure Heating from above, a strong draft in the room, paper thin walls.
The front desk staff were always kind and helpful. They responded to my requests right away and gave me information I needed.
Excellent location, superb food/dining. Good, helpful staff. Good value for money Lousy WiFi - worst/slowest have ever experienced- used Burger Kings in hotel lobby! Did not like paying for use of minibar or safe - this was not made clear on website.
Swimming pool was excellent, food was very good. Staff at the reseption: very slow and not friendly. Hotel is old and a bit wornout.
Yet another slightly shabby once-grande old dame to join the ranks of the nouveaux-pauvres. Overall, reasonable value for money, though certainly not 5-star quality. Perhaps 3-4 star. Items most in need of improvement - bedroom furniture (looks like Lady Stickland's origninal inventory is still in place, and rather the worse for wear) and the main restaurant - I've seen better standards in hospital canteens !! Still, beneath the "fading drapes and peeling paint" lurks some residual old world charm, which would not require a king's ransom to restore it to a semblance of its former glory. And should this happen one day, I would recommend a different interior designer - even the renovated rooms are gaudy rather than tasteful. See above. Connie Francis and Patsy Kline blaring from the adjacent bus terminal.
Perfect location. Very close to the bus terminal. Breakfast wasn't included.
The combination of the old, traditional style and feeling with the beautifully refurbished facilities; very warm and helpful personnel The elevator nearest our room (4 floors up) was out of order at times. The cost of the breakfasts seemed very high
This is a grand old place to stay. Right next to the bus station & the old city of Valletta. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room clean and had a great view over the harbour. The large gardens and pool are great for relaxing. Free wifi available in the bar area. Best to avoid the food at the bistro. You can get better meals in Valletta.
Very much, excellent value for money Staff a bit rough
The barman in the Club Bar, was excellent and the hotel majestic.
Amazing place, great staff, highly recommended Might be slightly noisy
A warm welcome when one arrives and a comfortable room. Excellent sevice always. Nothing
Excellent localisation, confort, calm Rooms are a bit small
very friendly and helpfull staff good, atmosphere plenty of characture. said large balcony which we paid exra for,which was misleading.
Very polite staff, great room with the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in! Swimming pool was closed (seasonal) and there was some construction noise due to expansion (but this is Malta-wide currently)
Location near ferries and buses, shops and restaurants; good for exploring and getting around. Short ferry ride to Valetta. Recommend Chop House at Tigne Point, Aroma restaurant (and others) in town. Basic price was ok but all else was too expensive. 25 Euros/day for wifi (lobby system does not work, made and saw several complaints). Recommended not to drink tap water, but bottle in room is 3 Euro (2 Euros for six 2 litre bottles in the shop next door). Breakfast > 11 Euros, walk to the front and pay less for a better selection.
very friendly and helpful staff. Very comfortable. Having its own car park was a definite bonus.
la beauty farm
We liked the Sliema location. It was 10 minute walk to the ferry to Valletta with a steep walk back which we did not mind this at all. The food served in the bar restaurant was excellent and very reasonably priced with excellent service. Very helpful staff. The hotel has an English atmosphere which we found charming. The shop in the hotel had an excellent range of gifts, also reasonably priced. Although this hotel is not on the waterfront, we had views of the water from our balcony. There are a lot of restaurants and pubs near the hotel. Also a very easy walk to St Julians where there are heaps of restaurants. We would definitely stay there again when we return to Malta, which we intend to do, as it is such an interesting place. We found the airconditioning very warm, not only in our room but also in the bar.
Comfortable bed, excellent cuisine, friendly helpful staff
The comfort and decor of the room were first class with a great balcony for relaxing. The breakfast buffet was rather limited. There could have been more fresh fruit, proper fruit juices and coffee. I would choose a room only option in future
Close to all the action Not four star in my part of the world (2 1/2 or 3 star at best), air-conditioning went on and off from movement sensors in the room and sensors on the doors - never got cold, elevators had no logic whatsoever
Great location. Away from noisy main roads but still close to everything. Restaurant food wasn't very good and the tablecloths were always dirty.
breakfest was very good. shower not good for people with more than 1,60 m
Convenient Location No
Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, they were eager to help however they could.
Everything was good. Closeness to everything and beautiful views over the sea and the st. Julian's bay. Needs little updates in the bathroom , otherwise all good. :)
Location was amazing! A short walk to pretty much everything downtown. Conveniently adjacent to the lagoon for that early morning refreshing dip before breakfast. Loved it! Service was a bit slow.
Good location. Some receptionist were okey One of the receptionist was very rude and not service minded. The Hotel manager didnt want to meet the customers when I requested to have a word with him. He was rude. The housing keeping were not clearning the rooms. They cleaned 3 times but didnt even remove used platrs caps. . The reception overcharded us for cruise to sicilly luck for us we changed in the bronchures.
We had a lovely view from our hotel room. Breakfast was good. The bed was very hard and the shower was held in place with a piece of string- we were not able to adjust this- water just went straight downward. Not very impressive.
Location was exelent, rooms very clean, niece clean swmming pool. Gorgeous views!
Location of hotel was excellent No heating in rooms and this was confirmed by the staff. This may have been due to the fact that there were not many people staying during this period. The food was basic but on hearing comments from other guests who stayed fully inclusive we had made a wise choice in staying B+B only. As previously pointed out no bar during the evening and no entertainment whatsover
cleanness, hotel location, calm poor buffet breakfast
The location is convenient
friendlyness of the staff
In the morning when the music stoped Would not go back to the hotel even if it was free
No. We Would stay there again.
Rooms were clean and provided almost everything what other 4 star hotels would. Great value for the money. good location. Rude reception staff. Tired after flight we had to "prove" existance of our booking dispite having printed booking copy. Our names were not on receptionist list, although after asking for manager our names miraculously appeared on the list. another point - some of the rooms face really loud side of the area with clubs and bars.that could be disadvantage for those who likes to sleep ar night.
The hotel had good facilities, very nice staff and it is located very central - close to most things you'd like to visit in the area.
The friendly attitude of the staff was about the only positive point for me. Having to go to another building for the resturant facilities.
Generally a poor hotel and it is hard to bring up relevant positive points. In some countries it would be rated 3 or less stars. Room was really poor and should never be considered a 4 stars hotel. Bathroom too old and dirty would need most of the appliances replaced including the door as it was completely black of humidity ... The service was real poor and staff helpless in simple tasks that we've requested. Too noisy and we could never guess it would be such a nightmare regarding we were on the last floor. The hotel (in our opinion) is a example of bad planning having the reception in one side and we have to leave the hotel to reach our room through an open corridor... generally too poor !!!
The location was convient, however this hotel is for the party goers, and drunks. The beds are very unconfortable. Maid service comes at odd hours. Hotel charges for tv usage, pool is only open till 6, Breakfast was awful, slim selection of food. Staff wasnt that friendly either.
Nothing specific, it was in the middle of the action downtown, and a good value for money.
Very good location to enjoy the night life in Malta. Good value for money.
It is located in an area which is excellent for shopping, dining and entertainment The bathrooms could have been more clean. There were used shower caps near the bath.
Great place to stay, great location. Just minutes From St. George's Bay and right in the middle of a shopping center. Very modern hotel and friendly staff.
