The hotel has a nice entrance lobby which provides a good feeling about this hotel and gives a good first impression.
However the rooms (we had two rooms) we booked were not that impressive. The air con unit (A/C) was not very well maintained and I wondered what it would be like during summer months. The A/C remote control didn’t work very well and when it worked it was only blowing hot air; couldn’t change it to any other mode and left it switched off. We visited during March and no A/C were needed.
The TV remote control didn’t work and there was no manual control for the TV. Good job we don’t watch TV when we are on holiday.
The rooms were nice and quiet; good for sleeping. The bathrooms were not what you would expect from a four star hotel. It was what you would expect from a two star rated hotel. Very little or no ventilation in the bathroom.
One thing I must warn every one; DO NOT use hotel phone to make phone call outside (within Malta or abroad). The call charges are very very EXPANSIVE.
Ok that’s enough negative points. There are several positive points about this hotel.
The hotel staffs are nice and helpful. It has a very nice restaurant which provides good selection of breakfast each morning. During the evening they provide lovely buffet (eat as much as you can) dinner for a fixed price of 13 euro which we thought excellent. The dining room gets very busy and therefore be there early.
From time to time they also have live vocalist or musicians playing instruments.
The hotel is conveniently located and close to sightseeing bus stops and many restaurants. There are several good bars nearby and they have good selection of foods.
Overall, good for a three star hotel.
