“Nice hotel with great people front desk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2011

Although my husband is not easy to please, he has not been for a long time so excited about a hotel. Normally we choose a 4 or 5 star hotels. After a month of research, we chose this place for location and for the rank on TripAdvisor. We stayed at the first floor, front sea view, room 109. The view is great, over the sea and a tower of the nineteenth century. The first floor rooms with front sea view have a terrace, others have balconies.The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. This hotel takes 7.5 on any scale in my opinion, but for a 3 star hotel is note 9+. People at the front desk are note 15 without any exaggeration. They make the hotel perfect.
We stayed in September 2011, the hotel has no air conditioning, we knew that when we booked and we have not really needed, but in warmer periods must be unpleasant. In weekend is noisy at night, due to a pub downstairs, otherwise it is reasonable.

Room Tip: The first floor rooms with front sea view have a terrace, others have balconies.

I'm an Australian/Maltese teen who went for his first holiday on his own with his friends .The first thing you notice when you enter the hotel is the front office .There was a young Guy maybe 18years old which was really friendly and spoke fluent English.The hotel is situated in the busy part of Sliema where everything is a throw of a stone away. Would recomand it for value for money ! P.S. I would sugest staying in a seaview room ..Waking in the morning and looking at that open sea is amazing.

Room Tip: Opt for the Seaview ones ..Are amazing :)

Good hotel. No A/C in the rooms, breakfast not included but very clean; staff friendly and helpful. Very good position. I would stay there again.

We stayed at the Astra Hotel for 6 nights during August 2011.
The rooms are simple yet comfortable. The major flaw is that there is no air conditioning just a big fan on the top of the room which is completely useless for cooling the room.
Consequently, the rooms are very hot in summer, the management should definitely consider investing in air conditioning and I think adding a small fridge in each room would add a lot of value for customers !! It is very convenient to have cold beverage in your room during summer !

The seaview was very nice and I think it is worth it. The staff was very friendly and helpful, which I really appreciate because it does not seem to be the same in other hotels in Malta.

The location of the hotel is great, really convenient if you want to travel around the island by bus, you can easily take a bus to Valetta (which is approximately 20 min away in bus) where all the bus lines start.

Overall, the rooms is very simple with basic comfort but I think this hotel offer a very good value for the money you pay. Some other hotels in the area are more expensive and worse in terms of quality of the rooms and of the services offered. If you have a low budget for your trip to Malta and plan to travel around the island instead of staying at your hotel, I would definitely recommend the Astra Hotel.

Very clean and tidy little hotel newly refurbished up to local standard. The staff is really lovely and helpful, you feel like a family member. Very good location, just off the main boulevard by the sea. Sometimes also mean that you will need to expect some noise coming through from the always happy crowd. In the rooms - bathroom, tv, free wifi, wardrobe, balcon. Close to the beach, pubs, restaurants, shops, bus stop - 50 m. ;-). I recommend this hotel :-)

This was the cheapest hotel available and were very pleased when we arrived. Hotel had been refurbished during winter and was kept clean. Comfortable - single- beds but pillows a little hard. A bit noisy on Friday night from bar on street but ok other nights. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Breakfast was the same each day and was ample. We could have ordered a full English at an extra cost. No hairdryer in room but kettle and cups! A great place to stay for a budget hotel.
