In ANY review there must be some consideration of price. This hotel offers compact rooms, Spa and training rooms (basement - deserted) and an indoor and outdoor pool (pretty deserted) plus a reception area. What more could one ask for! We stayed there in August and the roof-top pool and sunbathing area was very under-utilised. To have a roof-top pool and sun terrace (roof-top bar was closed for refurbishment) in a town-centre location is a wonderful asset and allows one to visit if for no other reason than the sea breezes - especially as the balconies were only good enough for hanging out the drying.
Breakfast was included and pleasant although there was a degree of inefficiency when it came to the provision of adequate crockery etc. We did have to ask for plates/bowls (arriving fresh and hot out of the dish-washer). We once commented upon spilt fruit juice only to find it still there upon our later visit.
Our review is being compared to one we had stayed in in Cyprus - it was more of a student and long term hostel than a hotel - but almost the same price as this wonderful Park Hotel. And to have Valeta a short harbour (or bus trip) away was fantastic.
Our room was 5th floor and overlooking Graham Street - no noise problems. Other rooms at lower levels or near kitchens or overlooking the rear may not be as nice as our room was.
Tourist/holiday makers may prefer to be further up the road but the cinemas and pubs and drunks are only a 5 minute enjoyable bus ride away - why live there and have to put up with the worst of holiday behaviour. Sliema is ideally situated between the two and the bust stop is virtually outside the hotel - going south to Valeta or north to the partying..
Stay again - most definitely. Well except of course that there are lots of other places to stay at. But I'll bet that wherever we next go we'll feel that Park Hotel was excellent value for money and the facilities/cleanliness were perfectly good - no problems with lift speeds. We'll probably 'split-the-difference' and go for 2 weeks - one to Park Hotel and one 'pot luck'.
And in retirement perhaps we'll do a longer winter stretch here and make it our second home.
