Just returned from Malta, 7 nights at the Marina. The hotel seems to have changed owners recently and our experience was generally positive. I had requested a seafront, high floor by e- mail through the booking.com site... plus a follow up re: a fridge in the room. The hotel had no record of the emails but the receptionist, Taylor, was apologetic and offered us an upgrade to superior room. If you are trying to contact hotel, then e-mail them direct.
The room was a good size and had a large balcony overlooking the harbour. Furnishings are basic, bed and linen excellent.... sheets and towels changed daily. I couldn't fault the house keeping standard.
Well done to the staff.
The hotel is still only 2-3 star, bathrooms need a re-furb, and the 'toiletries' comprised of a couple of bars of soap. With a little extra money spent here the hotel could easily raise their game.
Air con didn't work properly, but we didn't complain as evenings were reasonably cool.
We did have to put up with roadworks outside as they are re-laying the pavements but this should now be complete by now and obviously the hotel have no control over this.
Reception staff were pleasant and friendly, well the younger ones anyway, the older were a bit 'stiff'. The night reception, Alan, was always a happy smiling face.
Summing up, the seaview rooms are the ones to go for, I'm not so sure about inner rooms,I think they might be dingy. I would say that there has been a big improvement since earlier reviews, so a good budget hotel, with an excellent , although slightly noisy, location.
