The hotel is in a great location and that was what made it a good choice, but it did have it's problems,mainly the bathroom.There's small and small but this was not fit for purpose, as previously said if you are on the large size you stand no chance.Our room was small but nice enough with plenty of wardroom space a free safe and fridge which is a plus,air condition worked fine,so apart from that bathroom we could live with the small bedroom.the balcony was of a fair size and looked out over the bay to that wonderful view of valletta,sun from 10am to 7pm we really did enjoy that balcony just watching the boats coming in and out, it is overlooking the road but even that with open top buses and the taxi rank outside people coming and going with the sun on you and a gin & tonic in you hand I can live with that.
It appears in general if you want piece and quite and larger rooms go for the back of the hotel with a garden view.The main restaurant on H/B was fine did have some minor issues nothing major and the food was up to an acceptable standard plus you did have the choice of other restaurants outside around the garden area which was a very pleasant alternative .
The location is spot on taxi rank outside,bus stop 3min and boat ferry across to valletta 5min walk away,to the left of the hotel is the new shopping center with a large supermarket again 3min,and if you like walking you've got great flat promenade's either side of the hotel with plenty of seat's.
So if you can live with that small bathroom I would say it's a good choice of hotel because of the location, we would stay there again.
