Plevna Hotel
Ranked #17 of 28 Hotels in Sliema
Reviewed 12 September 2008

We have just returned from a 5 day holiday to the Plevna. This hotel is very shabby. There is building work going on all around it and we were woke every morning by 0630hrs with the builders next door either hammering or with their lorry and crane delivering building materials. It would have not made the slightest bit of difference to move rooms as I said before the building work was on all sides of the hotel. The beach club is downhill and then there are about 20 steps to enter the lido so if you have walking difficulties you cant use it. Also during the summer months when the beach club is open it is not possible to get a hot or cold drink or any food in the hotel until 1800hrs when the bar opens (even the vending machine is locked in the bar) unless you sit up in your room. There was no entertainment while we were there. We stayed on an all inclusive basis but unless you prepared to go down to the beach club and fry in the 80 degree heat and eat with the flys then you have to go elsewhere. There was no sign of any snacks and cakes behind the bar in the evening. This has got to be the worse all inclusive holiday we have ever had.

2nd July

Today I returned from a wonderful and relaxing holiday at the Plevna Hotel in Sliema staying on half board.
I found everything to be first class. The food was excellent with a wonderful choice for breakfast that I only needed a sandwich at lunch time until the evening meal of which there was so much choice and all delicious and plentiful.
My room and bathroom were both kept wonderfully clean and the towels changed everyday. Okay they weren't the newest of towels but so what they did the job of dyring me and that was all I wanted. The bed and bedsheets couldn't have been better.
The staff were so good they could not do enough for me which I appreciated so much.
There were a mixture of age groups from families, young couples, students, single people and older couples and all seemed to be enjoying themselves.
Sliema is a little hilly so it may not be so suitable for people with walking difficulties.
Thank you Plevna staff for giving me such a wonderful and relaxing holiday and I can't wait to visit you again

Hotel Plevna is located in Sliema and is a short walk to many shops and restaurants. While there were a few things that seemed a little worn, this hotel was excellent value considering the incredibly low cost. Breakfast was included, and there were eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, tomatoes, fruit, yogurt, meat and cheese to choose from. While I hear what others are saying with regards to the slightly graying towels, they are clean and fine for drying you off. Again, you have to remember what you are paying. This is not a luxury hotel and my expectations were met. I would definitely stay here again!

Having read the previous reviews I was very apprehensive and even spoke to med hotels about the buidling noise. They said it was not a problem. My photos would confirm is was - at 6.30 most mornings. We stayed all inclusive and the food was very basic and bland and I would say this is just full board with a few drinks thrown in! On the first day we were asked to leave our dated sunbeds on the lido at 4.30pm as it was closing, they had to go and serve in the bar. The pool was actually closed for 2 days for repainting!.
The rooms were very small and basic, towels see through when wet and bedding grey not white. Air con not working properly and only one tv news channel to watch. The roof terrace is just a load of old sunbeds and broken tables and chairs on a roof!! No garden. Only had entertainment on 2 nights and this consisted of an organist who finished at 10.30. Definitely not one for a family holiday and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.

The hotel is in a good location, very close to the Sliema seafront and just a few minutes walk to the harbour, where you can take buses to almost anywhere on the island and also hop on the ferry over to Valletta. There are some decent restaurants in the area and also at St Julians, which is a good 20 walk along the sea front.

The rooms were on the small side and whilst we had a balcony from which you could see Valletta this was obscured by building work, and regulary covered in dust! The rooms were poorly cleaned, beds badly made and the towels were disgusting and must have dated back to the 70's.

Whilst the staff in general were quite helpful and friendly at least on reception, the hotel has an odd feel about it. Breakfast was bland and the breakfast room too small for the number of guests.

However the location suited us and as we don't spend much time in our hotel it was ok, but would I stay here again? No.

Hotel Plevna was great value for money. Room was huge and we had a balcony overlooking the ocean (from the side). Everything was clean in the room, adn the showers were standard European bath/shower.
Location was key and only 100m to the beach and poss 200m to sliema creek side. We didn't use the beach club (there are way too many beautiful spots to explore other than a hotel pool!) but i guess this could be good for families. Walk 15 minutes down the promenade to Sliema/St julians and perfect bars/restaurants and cafes can be found. Buses run to everywhere within a 5 minutes walk.
Breakfast was included in our rate which was great - good choice althought didnt try the hot breakfast (except for yummy pancakes with ricotta, honey and fresh banana that I made myself!) We had a big bowl of musili with fresh yoghurt and honey with fresh fruit every morning which was perfect.
Didn't use the bar or restaurant facilities, although I think only people who were on All Inclusive basis would have. (PS. Please don't go all inclusive wherever u stay in Malta, there are too many great, reasonably prices places to eat & drink and how can u travel to a county and not experiance the local dishes?????...)
Nothing to complain about, everything was adequate - this is a 3 star hotel, and a very good one at that especially for European and especially Malta standards. Would not hesitate to recommend.
NOTE: Do not eat at La Dolphin Restaurant in St Julians on top of the hill.....we got severly ripped off as the menu DOES NOT represent what they charge. Worst experiance of time in Malta.
otherwise everything was fantastic holiday.
