A modern hotel situated just over the road from Silema ferry to Valetta and all the boat and bus trips. Rooms on the front of the hotel overlooking the water have magnificent views, and also the sun all day, these will be 105, 106, 107 and 108 then the same for 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th , 6th, 7th floor, other rooms have either no view, eg, no balcony or a view from back of hotel. Breakfast is on 8th floor so again marvelous views. A very nice hotel but we had room 106 overlooking the boats and sun all day so we was lucky and had nothing at all to dampen our spirits.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as I have stated above , one looking over the water , otherwise views are either not good or non existant.

We booked, and paid in full, for ten days' holiday in this hotel in June 2012 via Mercury Direct. Our holiday began at the start of September.

When we arrived at noon we were told our room was not ready and that we should come back at 1300/1330. We were allowed to leave our luggage and so went for lunch. Although there were piles of stacked chairs littering the reception area there was not really anywhere to wait in the hotel. When we returned at 1300 we were told that, actually, there was no booking for us. However, the manager (?) offered to give us a temporary room for a few days and then would be able to accommodate us in the seaview room we had booked. My husband was not willing to agree to this and we were then surprisingly, offered a seaview room on either the first or the fifth floor. We accepted the room on the fifth floor as we had particularly asked for a high room on our original booking. It would seem from other reviewers that this situation regarding 'overbooking' happens on a regular basis.

The room was clean and had a private and comfortable balcony. The bathroom was clean but had exposed valves and pipes in the shower. The frosted glass window in the shower opened into a dark ventilation shaft, as did the window of the neighbouring room, creating a novel simultaneous shower experience with our neighbours. Bedlinen was clean and the wardrobe space was adequate but lacked sufficient coat hangers for the amount of clothes required for a ten day stay. We asked for more and they were duly provided. There was no chest of drawers and so many of our belongings were not unpacked from the cases.

There was no welcoming literature or instructions in our room on how to use the air con, safe or TV. The kettle worked very slowly and a few days later would explode when my husband plugged it in. We discovered that, as we have a sea view we room we are also fortunate to have tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge. These are not standard in other rooms, as are windows and a source of daylight.

The public areas are not air-conditioned and some of the carpeted areas have an odour. The brochure and website have captured the hotel from some creative angles. It is not as swish as it is portrayed. The lifts are unreliable, slow, cramped and do not always go where they say they are going.

A few days later there was an explosion from the kettle and all the rooms on the floor were blacked out. The night manager was most helpful and called an electrician and brought a new kettle. The electricity supply was soon restored but none of the sockets in any of the rooms on our floor would work and we had no air conditioning.

We require the use of electrical night-time medical equipment and in order to be able to do this we were moved to another floor into two single rooms. My husband's room appeared to have no window. It transpired that this was behind a wardrobe. It consisted of frosted glass which opened on to a dark ventilation shaft shared with Burger King next door. At 0600 my husband summoned the night manager to listen to the vast amount of noise which had been ceaselessly coming into his room through the closed window from Burger King's air conditioning. My room was situated nearer to the lift and I was constantly disturbed by its noise. I had an unconcealed frosted window which also opened on to a ventilation shaft. There was no daylight in either of these rooms and yet it appeared that they cost 90 euros per night. Considering that this hotel has no public lounge facilities the comfort and safety of single travellers needs seriously to be addressed. It appears that there are several alternatives in this hotel - if you want comparative accommodation with a UK hotel you should pay for a sea view. Failing that, have a back view over a large building site or take a side room with no daylight at all, no fridge and no tea and coffee making facilities.

The handle on my bathroom door was broken but took comfort from the screwdriver which was left for my use.

Our electrical problems were eventually resolved and we were able to stay in our room until the end of our holiday. We encountered a couple of forms of wild life - a cockroach in the bathroom and a lizard in the dining room toilet. Perhaps normal for the Mediterranean.

The dining room does have stunning views over the harbour but breakfast was a routine affair. Outside the hotel there is a fruit stall and yet every morning the breakfast table only offered oranges and apples - some days only oranges. Why not some bananas, peaches, nectarines, grapes etc? It seemed strange to be offered fruit cocktail which had obviously just been opened from a tin. Cooked breakfast was baked beans, scrambled egg on some days, worm-like sausages and grey bacon. Muesli proved elusive and would appear on an ad hoc basis. I was told it was a problem with the supplier which I thought strange as it was freely available in the supermarket a short distance up the road. Fruit juice seemed to be water based and not concentrated. An injection of imagination and creativity would have gone a long way to make the meal more appetizing. It appeared that the food on offer was just quick, routine and convenient.

During the week the shower curtain was refreshed but sheets were not changed.

Reception staff were helpful.

This hotel needs to do some market research into the expectations of travellers from the UK. In-room refreshment facilities should be automatic in every room, as should a fridge. Rooms without a natural light source should be closed down and there should be some attempt to create a comfortable public indoor lounge area.

We had to spend so much of our holiday dealing with and being inconvenienced by these issues. We did try to upgrade but were prevented by the cancellation fee required by this hotel. We decided to make the most of it.

We are frequent visitors to Malta and booked this hotel in May for a week. Great Location with easy access to buses boat trips and good choice of restaurants. Manager Pierre and all Staff very helpful and polite and made us feel very welcome.Our room was big and spacious and very clean. If booking I would recommend a sea view. Breakfast - good choice of continental or cooked.
Views from the dinning room were amazing looking over to Valletta. We have booked this Hotel for our next visit to Malta in October this time with a sea view. If your a first time visitor to Malta I would definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Book a room with a sea view from 5th or 6th Floor up

This was our first Beach Holiday in this Hotel on Malta and it was really good there. It is a very good managed Hotel with a good 4 Star Level. All was clean and we did liked the Design there very much. Especially we have to say, that the Food - Breakfast and Dinner - have been very choiceful and did taste very good. It was hot and fresh. Also good Choices of Drinks.

On arrival we were told our room had been confirmed but the room was not ready as it was before the check-in time, no problem we went to have lunch and would return to sort our room. When we returned we were told that although we had booked (and had confirmed twice via email) a standard sea view room that the hotel was over booked and we would be given a superior sea view room for 1 night and would then move rooms the next day. This was not ideal as we just wanted to get unpacked and sorted but did not argue. The superior room on the 6th floor was lovely with great air con and a nice balcony. The next day we had to pack and leave the room before 11am and then wait til 2pm to get into our next room. Booked months ago I had requested a room on a higher floor as advised by trip advisor reviews and this had been acknowledged although could not be confirmed however since we had been messed around already I had expected that request to be met, It was not. We were allocated room 108 on the 1st floor and after some communication problems realised there were no other sea view rooms so accepted it and reception offered to give us a fridge for the room as compensation. The standard sea view room was disappointing, the view was not as good, the air con was not as good, the bath had seen a lot better days, the toilet ran for ages after flushing and the safe would not work but there was very little road noise at night although the beds are very hard we slept well. Reception did send someone to open the safe but it still did not work properly and we were afraid to use it. Air con although set to its lowest did not do a very good job of cooling the room and would randomly time out and turn itself off during the night. We woke up one morning to no power in the hotel, no explanation, no apology we were just thankful we had a window so could get ready ok although showering was very dark and the climb to the 8th floor was very poorly lit with emergency lighting. Breakfast had plenty of choice and loads available, we went up to the 9th floor to see the sun terrace and hot tub twice (one morning and one late afternoon), both times there were plenty of available sun loungers but the hot tub was filthy with a big black ring and scum around the edge of the water. Overall the hotel was ok, little things like the room floor was a little gritty and not properly cleaned, when soap was finished it was not always replaced and a spare toilet roll was not left one day could be overlooked but I feel they need to work on customer satisfaction more and the explanation given of "the hotel is always overbooked" does not fill me with confidence to book again or to recommend it to a friend.

Malta is a lovely island and Sliema is definitely the area you want to be in for views, bars, restaurants, transport and shops. Do not be tempted to stay further north and closer to sandy beaches and these areas did not look great. I can also recommend the Captain Morgan Fernandes Gozo and Comino full day tour, that was so much fun but get there early to get a good spot on the boat and probably best to book a day or 2 in advance. The bus tour was a bit of a waste of time as on 1 route there was no audio commentary and it basically took the same route as the local buses. Be careful what time you choose to go visit Valletta as we went for a wonder on a Sunday and ofcourse everything was closed (we should of known better), so we tired another day and were totally unaware that it was a public holiday so everything was still closed, I think it also closed most afternoons. If you get the chance go to one of the local Festas, it was a really good traditional malta experience.

Other helpful hints: dont expect to do a lot of shopping as it seemed quite expensive, the beach areas get really busy in the afternoon so get there early, no matter how fancy the restaurant looks shorts and flip flops are acceptable, single female travellers seemed quite common and it did seem like a very safe island, driving is not for the faint hearted, 99% of people speak really good english, a week long bus ticket costs 12euros each and if you are going to buy Mdina glass it is cheaper at the arts and crafts village.

Room Tip: Superior sea view rooms are much better than standard sea views, ask for a high level and make sure you confirm your booking with the hotel before your trip so that hopefully they are not overbooked and you get what you wanted.
