"After reading some previous reviews was a little unsure what to expect but was pleasantly suprised overall. We had a room on the 5th floor overlooking the harbour to Valetta and so did not experience any traffic noise. The room was large and comfortable but the balcony was a little small - just enough room for 2 chairs and a small table but thats all we really needed. Balconies and rooms do vary in size as we spoke to some people with a huge balcony but a tiny room, so my advice would be to swap rooms if you are not happy with your initial allocation. Cleaning was great as they chnaged towels and sheets every day. We ate in the buffet restaurant most nights which served really good food - different hot and cold choices every night including various vegetarian options. The restaurant overlooks the pool and over to Valetta and was furnished to a good modern standard. The same restaurant does great breakfasts again with plenty of choice. My only gripe would be sometimes the Corn Flakes were the budget variety and tatsed like cardboard, whilst the next day they would be the proper thing! The cold milk machine did break down one morning but the staff had it fixed within about 10 minutes. We did eat at some of the other restaurants in the complex but some have set menus and so choices were more limited. There is a chap offering free harbour cruises outside the buffet restaurant trying to sign you up to look round the 5* complex next door. We took the free harbour cruise but declined the offer of the tour round the 5* complex. The free harbour cruise was very enjoyable but everyone in Sliema seems to be giving them away free! Some reception staff were very helpful whilst on other days different staff werent quite as forthcoming so perhaps a little more consistency would be good. Would return to this Hotel if I ever go back to Sliema as the location was great and offered great
