Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The room was nice and not worn down as some state in the reviews (room 403, see photos) - we had the promised bay view and everything was ok for the price. The single bed rooms though only provide some sort of arrow slit as the balcony
We didn't check the breakfast, since there are so many opportunities to have great breakfast in the close neighborhood.
The personnel just did what was absolutely necessary, the duvet cover wasn't changed for the entire week of our stay, I would have expected this to happen at least every second or third day. Further leftovers from snacks stayed in their place for the entire stay as well, so no real room cleaning.
One night there was a fire alarm, which was managed quite chaotic. First, only about 10 people actually left the building, there was noone to give some supervision. The receptionist wanted to take a look at what was happening and took the elevator (!) to check the rooms - luckily in the end it was just some idiots that smoked in their room, but if this had been a true fire it might have ended up quite seriously.
One night we woke up to screams and people hitting doors which turned out to be a bunch of drunken folks - after talking to the receptionist he told me that he had called them on the phone to tell them to stay quiet and that was all. Finally after another half an hour of screams and rumble from the room everyone obviously fell asleep. I'd wish that the hotel would take over more accountability of their facilities in these cases.
The Sea View rooms are facing the main street, so expect some noise at night, but the mornings are great. The WIFI doesn’t really work, most of the time I got connected but couldn’t access any internet location.
Looking at the reviews here, I feel that people should stay reasonable with their judgement around the cleanliness of the rooms. I feel it was ok and wonder, if it looks better in the homes of these, that complain about the status of the rooms. Surely there is room for improvement, but my impression was, that, given the very attractive price, the location is still a good place to be

I have been nervous about trying this Hotel, because of the negative reviews, but I can honestly say, hand on heart, ignore them, it was great! I had a friendly welcome on check-in by the Night Receptionist, I took the Lift up to the 3rd floor to my Seaview Single Room. It was big for a Single Room (many hotels would have squeezed in a Double Bed and called it a Double). The room was tastefully furnished, and well equipped, with a Fridge, Safe, Air Conditioning, Large Flat Screen Tv, and Tea & Coffee Making facilities. Everything was totally clean. The Bathroom was small but just as nice, with a Shower, WC, and nice modern round wash hand basin. The icing on the cake is the seaview, it was lovely (day & night). There is a small balcony and yes, half the space is taken up by the Aircon Unit (mentioned in other reviews), but this is a Single Room, and there is perfectly enough space for the occupant to go out there.
I had Breakfast included, and it was a very good selection (compared to other Maltese 3 star Hotels). All the staff I encountered, Reception, Restaurant, and Housekeeping were friendly and always said 'hello'. There plenty of Restaurants around to eat out, and bus stops to go to almost anywhere on the Island, close by.
I had a great time, and I'll definitely go back!

Good location with great view of the bay , loads of shops and restaurants near by but.....noisy street downstairs and live music from the bar downstairs will wake up the dead even on the 3rd floor!
Clean, recently redecorated, but the staff are utterly indifferent at reception. Does the job if you are not a light sleeper

Stayed here for 3 nights in a sea view room overlooking the bay, fabulous views sitting out with a morning coffee, the photo is from our balcony.
Good size room, spotless, bed very comfortable, tea and coffee making facilities, fridge, everything you need.
Good value breakfast, plentiful and covers all the basics
Great staff at reception and the cleaners, always had a smile on their faces.
Perfect location, easy to get anywhere on foot, bus or taxi.
It's certainly not 5 star but for the price I cannot fault it.
Recommend the extra for the sea view rooms, well worth it.

We had booked a 9-night stay in a regular double room with sea view (in May for September 2021). When we arrived late on a Friday night, we were charged the full amount for the stay (in line with the booking confirmation) but when we entered the room, we immediately realised that we had been give an economy double room which was much smaller than the one we had booked (18 sq metres instead of 24). We complained to the receptionist but she was unable to solve the problem. The next morning we spoke to the manager who told us that rooms are assigned on arrival, completely ignoring the fact that the hotel offers two separate categories of room.
As the hotel was unable to provide us with a room in the booked category and we didn't want to stay in the small room with a tiny bathroom for 8 further nights, we left but the hotel has still not refunded us any money.
The room was quite old and worn, the bathroom was tiny and you had to squeeze through a 40 cm shower door which was also partly blocked by the toilet seat. The shower enclosure had been leaking for some time so there were stains on the floor.
The breakfast room was windowless with crumbling walls and breakfast and staff were hostel, not hotel standard.

Horrendous!! Felt more hostel than hotel! Lady on the desk was fantastic but had no power as it wasn’t her regular hotel. The first room we were allocated stank of cigarettes so we asked to change but were told we’d have to pay an extra 25 euros for the next room up!! This was non negotiable & had to agree under duress as we had already paid & just needed somewhere for the night. The new room was great, a really good outlook didn’t smell but had clumps of hair all over the floor. There was no duvet cover just sheets so bed was highly uncomfortable & the sink had a sharp glass square base which made it pretty nigh on impossible to get on & off the toilet without cutting your legs to ribbons!! Good job we are relatively slim as wouldn’t have been possible if we were any bigger!!
Will not be returning

Visited in the off season months, so was a little quieter than normal. Had a wonderful time - Malta is a must visit place!

Hotel was perfect for the price I paid. Obviously it’s not a 5 star hotel but I didn’t pay 5 star hotel prices so I was very happy.

Room was spacious and as seen in the photos on the booking site.

Clean and no damages all round very good, would recommend to anyone on a certain budget

Stayed a night after a wedding - very helpful and friendly staff. Front of hotel /entrance needs 'tlc' but the room was comfortable and location was convenient. Receptionist recommended 'Sale e Pepe', a traditional Italian restaurant with outdoor dining on the seafront - great food, value and staff.

We arrived to find that we did not have a room. We were staying for 2 weeks as we were getting married. Easy jet had cancelled our flight from Gatwick. I informed the hotel of our change of date which I had on my phone. Can you imagine how we felt? We also had 8 rooms booked for family. After half an hour of total stressed they found our booking under Kevin Kevin!!
The hotel receptionist was going to provide some Prosecco and was also asked to book 3 taxis for my self and bridesmaids on Saturday 1st October, I asked several times if he had done this he assured me that everything was booked and not to worry. Saturday came no taxis and no Prosecco. Had to book ourselves, meaning we were late for my wedding.
The hotel itself is dirty, I found dried blood and holes on supposedly clean sheets, mattress was threadbear. The rooms were swept once in the time we spent here. New staff are always being trained, obviously they don’t keep them very long. The showers are small dirty and bathroom tiny. Hardly any storage facilities. You have to pay to hire a fridge. There are no facilities to iron clothes and the hairdryer smells of burning when you use. The air conditioner in the room causes everyone to have sore throats.
There are no disability facilities, the stairs are narrow, there is one lift that is very small.
I seriously would advise that you do not stay at this hotel

Stay are helpful and professional, allowed a late check out due to the storm and luggage store before and after my stay. The room and bathroom were clean, apart from the large cube of safety glass I found on the floor. The bed was also weak and creaky and the linen quality could be improved but was very good value for a one-night stay

There are lifts so that shouldn’t be an issue. I went with my teenage daughter so the need for a high chair did not arise. There is no pool at the hotel.

No , there are no tea making facilities in the rooms , you have to contact reception for drinks.

Yes, it is all of those. Lots of bars in the area and the noisy and lively area of night life is a short walk away should you want that - but the hotel is far enough away so that it is not noisy.

No. Right next there is an excellent cafe called Boccocinos though.
