The Xara Palace is located in Mdina. Malta is very small so you can reach the sea within 15 minutes. I do not like very big hotels so thats why I choosed to stay there. The hotel has been built in an old palace. Mdina is a good place to spend holiday is you want to be outside the touristic places. During daytime there are a lot of tourist but in the evening it is very quiet. The hotel is rated with 5 *. But I will give them 4* for the rooms and 3* for the service. The rooms - since in a old building are loud if you are in the first floor. I urgently recommend to book a room with view (not duplex room - you'll have view on a wall!!) Room nr 7 was very nice on 2 floors and with a whirlpool on the roof with a spectacular view. But on the upper floor there is the restaurant and while you try to sleep upstairs they are preparing the breakfast room for the next day and you can hear everything.. I recommend to stay not longer than 2 or 3 days at this hotel. The breakfast is ok but the service very very slow.. be patient.. for a relais & chateau I expected more. there isn't a pool where you can relax or a spa. I recommend this hotel for people who want to discover Malta - its a good starting point. You need a permission to enter inside mdina with your rental car - hotel is providing it. ask them when you make the booking. I enjoyed my stay at Xara Palace but it is not a 5* hotel. For sleeping here and discover the island absolutely ok. The restaurant A.D. makes good pizza. And also in Mdina there are a few good restaurants to visit (shamra).
