The Bugibba and Qawra area are mainly pretty flat.

A long flat promenade runs between St Pauls Bay and Qawra with plenty of bars and cafes to stop for a cuppa ( or beer ).

I also meant to say that the pronade is mainly smooth , fairly wide and with lots of seats all the way along.

If you have a choice, I'd choose a hotel as close to the Promenade as possible.

Me I would choose Sliema lovely long Promenade From St Julians nearly all the way to Valetta some very good hotels on the way like the Park Hotel Sliema they also have apartments. You also have lots of coffee shops and the new shopping centre with lots of places to rest along the way have a look at Booking.Com at the hotel photos and then come back here for reviews.

I would have said to consider Sliema (and St. Julians) too. But there is the problem that there is a hill from the Ferries Area to the Ghar-id-dud area and another at Spinola. They are very short and not really steep - and one bus stop apart - so it depends how bad the mobility problem is.

It was because of the hills that hat776 mentioned that I suggested Bugibba which is flat all the way round.
