St Julians

I'm heading over to Malta from 27th - 30th December, main reason is to see a friend I have over there.

Will be my first time there so wouldn't really know where to start looking, ill be staying there 3 nights so Ideally i don't really want to spend more than 50 a night for a hotel.

Not really fussed about quality/standards but i'd obviously want it to be within reason! (Won't really be in the hotel other than to sleep)

Any advice/help on good places to stay would be greatly appreciated

Had a quick look at Booking.com site and found several hotels that would suit you very nicely around Sliema St Julians and St Georges Bay all around €50 per day and if you wanted to go a bit furthur out you can get nice hotels for less . I would suggest somewhere like the Preunla in Sliema handy for the Bus and within easy reach of most parts of the island.

If you are not worried about quality and standards, that I mean by new furniture fittings carpets, and being tucked up in bed every night, but looking for clean and comfortable,just to get your head down, cheap and in a quiet road, yet with all this> within 5 minutes walk, bus station to anywhere on the Island, sea and promenade, best restaurants and bars, best super market, and some of the most expensive properties in malta QAWRA POINT try the QAWRA INN 12 euros a night and I think that is including breakfast. Choose a room over looking TAMAR STREET you will get the sun all afternoon, this huge hotel is in a quiet prime position, in the past it has had bad write ups, but I drive past every day and every one looks happy and for that price I would be, as it is in a good spot. Now at that price 36 euros 50 cents for 3 nights is better than paying 150 euros you could go and see your mate in ST JULIANS by bus, and come home by taxi 10 /15 euros, or your mate could visit you in QAWRA, and save your self a lot of cash. KNOWKATS only give honest opinions, and TRUE FACTS have nothing to do with QAWRA INN have a wonderful time in MALTA.

You don't mention your age or what you're planning to do.

If you will be painting the town red for the 3 nights I wouldn't be staying outside St Julians, even Sliema (next door) is a pain in the backside to get to at 3 in the morning - you'll spend an hour walking along the front in zig zags, be waiting half an hour at Wembleys for a cab or getting ripped off by a white cab (and you WILL pay the €20-25 quoted for a 5 minute drive if bevvied and desperate for a bed).

If you're not painting the town red, Sliema's fine, wouldn't be tempted by Qawra though - 20 minute drive and more, All imho of course.
