    Posizione strategica; comodissimo ai collegamenti pubblici (bus e water bus) e servizi di escursioni turistiche (citysighting e boat); Nei paraggi si possono trovare negozi di shopping, bar e ristoranti di vario tipo: caffeterie, lounge bar, fast foods, ristoranti di lusso e tradizionali, alcuni veramente a picco sulla baia incantevole; la passeggiata lungo baia con imperdibile vista di La Valletta; Personale accogliente e discreto; Ottima pulizia e cambio asciugamani tutti i giorni; wi fi gratuito nella hall.Al 6° piano, dove ero alloggiato in una camera interna senza vista mare, la finestra, fin dalla mattina presto, faceva entrare rumori e suoni dalla cucina/sala colazioni/pranzo. Per rimanere isolati era necessario tenerla chiusa. Bagno piccolo e un pò stretto, water scomodo.

  • Overall Experience: Excellent

    Hotel is exactly as described in the pictures. You get what you are paying for. Breakfast is lovely quality however lacks a little with choice. Staff are friendly and helpful. Wifi in room is dear but free in reception. Rooms are lovely, definitely pay the extra for sea view the views are amazing, we had room 704. Which is an apartment room and ideal for us traveling with our little girl. Hotel provided us with a microwave free of charge which was helpful to sterilise her bottles Would definately stay again!!!Only downside is on 7th floor the chairs moving from breakfast and dinner when they clean but doesn’t affect trip too much would probably ask for 5th or 6th floor room next time for a perfect stay!!!
