This is the 2nd time I have stopped in this hotel, It is the cheapest i could find in Marsaskala, and for the price, I thought it was value for money. All the staff are very friendly and always happy to help! The room comes with free Wifi, and Air conditioning. I could also see the sea from the room....

We wanted to stay in the south east of Malta for a couple of nights. I was aware of the Sensi Hotel's mixed reviews and when I booked it was with a degree of optimism. When we arrived there was nobody available at the check-in area to the side of the bar - a random girl had to be sent...

I agree with Kate M and other reviewers. I booked into the Sensi, as it is now called, just for an overnight transit stay through Malta, in October 2012. The hotel appears uninhabited from the outside; top floor windows are blocked up, the main door (though you wouldn't know it was this) had a 'closed' notice, yet if you pushed......you...

We stayed in this hotel for one night last Saturday in order to attend the Marsalokk market the following day. We were charged 5 star rates and this was demanded as soon as we arrived even before we were given the key to our room. Whilst the room itself was comfortable there was no hot water in the bathroom nor...

I booked this hotel to visit friends in Malta. It is a two-star hotel, and therefore I had no expectations of a grand 5-Star. I was the only guest staying and refurbishments that are mentioned in other reviews were still ongoing. The hotel is basic. The rooms are basic. The welcome and friendliness are certainly not basic. Everyone was helpful...
