“Very nice and clean”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

Nice room with well sized balcony.

Room is equipped with a well priced mini-bar, a/c, tv (could have more channels) and compete toilet. Mattress s of poor quality and rooms with street views can be a bit noisy.

Room and common areas were clean, and there is a pleasant pool area in the roof top.

If you think f going to the pool, better to go in the early hours of the morning as it is very quite and pleasant.

Quite close by there is a very nice restaurant (vinyard) that is worth a visit if you're looking for perfectly cooked food and excellent service at a good price away from the crowds.

Wifi is available, however it wasn't working!

Breakfast is ok. Juices are of poor quality though. All rest is fine.

Room Tip: Ask fora room that is not facing the main road. Check if your area wifi router is working properly.

Very pleasant and helpful staff. Good central location. Nice clean and spacious room, kettle was provided on request. Breakfast was good - cereals, fruit, cooked breakfast, tea and coffee.

We found the public transport on Gozo very good value and main bus terminal 15 minutes walk from hotel.

The only small disapointment was the very small swimming pool, but this is a city hotel and is to be expected.

We would recommend this hotel to others and would happily return ourselves.

It is spotlessly clean, the food is good and the location is perfect, in the centre of Victoria.

Me and my family decided to go for a long weekend in Gozo and choose the Down Town Hotel as our holiday residence due to the fact that the Service is excellent and the Hotel is very clean and tidy. Another important thing why we choose to reside in the Downtown Hotel is because by walking for a few meters you will find lots of Shopping Malls and other shops. Regarding Parking you don't have any difficulty cause there are lots of parking spaces.

I would also like to congratulate the management for the fact that they opened a very relaxing Entertainment Area underneath the hotel were one can enjoy Live Football, Food, Drinks and also a Bowling Game with the kids.

Regarding the quality of the food I cannot say anything because I never ate there but one time my child got hungry in the afternoon and when I went to buy him something they told me that the kitchen was closed.

One last thing me and my family enjoy using the pool which is situated on the roof of the Hotel but when other people come the pool becomes to small and one of the reason why this happens is because there is a large cement rock that covers three quarters of the pool.

I recommenced you to visit this Hotel.

Room Tip: I prefer to stay in the Country View Rooms due to the fact that in the morning I like to enjoy that...

Came here in February on family business. Decided to return for a holiday with my wife. What I said in the previous review still pretty much stands. Just wanted to add that they've now opened a bowling / pool type bar below the hotel. Whilst it does offer a bit more entertainment in the evenings, we could hear the bowling from our balcony. It seemed to by done by about 10pm during the week but went on until midnight at the weekend. It didn't bother us but then we are not light sleepers (the local Gozo wine ensured that !!).
Also wanted to re state that this hotel is such good quality for such good value. The rooms are spacious and clean, and serviced daily if you want. The breakfast is very simple but the café menu is extensive, the food was very nice and the prices great.

Decided to spend the night in Gozo on the spur of the moment and got the country view room. Lovely room, spacious, quiet, the balcony is a bonus, the bathroom spacious and has a hair dryer. Very clean room and the fridge is well stocked. Reception staff are very friendly. Breakfast was good apart from the bacon which seems to be cooked instead of grilled. The only problem was a french lady guest who insisted on getting the ham and cheese slices with her hand instead of using the grabber but that's not the hotel's fault, is just the french idea of food safety, hehehe. I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel and would stay again if ever went back to Gozo .When you compare with London hotels you know you are getting excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Only 5Euros difference between balcony and country room with balcony. Go for the country room which...

Stayed at the Downtown for two weeks as the apartment we had booked had to many stairs.
Our room was spotless, breakfast was very good apart from the streaky bacon which seemed like it had been boiled instead of grilled. Dinner in the restaurant also very good but huge portion sizes and my starter was more like a main course, when my main course did arrive I was too full to eat it.
used the swimming pool upstairs a lot and my son loved it as he had just learnt how to swim and it wasn't too deep for him.
All in all the Downtown is a great place to stay the staff were friendly with nothing being too much trouble. We would come back again and the do make a lovely mug of tea.
