I stayed at Two Pillows with my friend and soon we go again. The owners are very, very friendly, helping us each day with places to visit. It is very easy to travel from Two Pillows. By walk we went to the beach, to restaurants, shopping, and to visit cultural places it is also easy with the bus station very close. In the evening we enjoy staying at Two Pillows with other guests to cook and enjoy some wine. One day, we stay there during day, it is quiet but we enjoy that too and sunbathe alone in the terrace. After we go to Gozo, but we will be going back for some more days. See you soon Two Pillows!

Room Tip: Ask owners which is best room they have available and they help you. For us, the 'red room' was great.

Loved the entrance to this hostel, loved the welcoming host and her valuable tips, loved the free wifi which works everywhere and loved the mattresses but most of all I loved the spacious common spaces where I met so many cool and laid back people... The chill out area with massive tv and free movies, the red kitchen and BBQ, the coolest table and stools in breakfast area but my favorite is the hammock under the lemon tree... Thank you TP and see u this summer ... Xxx from SOS

I chose the Two Pillows for the location, and I certainly wasn't disappointed! I'm glad we stayed in Sliema instead of St Julian - too much of a party spot there. The building is in a charming residential street but very close to shops (including a Marks & Spencer) and the ferry port to Valletta. No private parking but we were always able to get street parking nearby.

We stayed in the Blue Room on the top floor. It's spacious with a modern, well supplied kitchen (microwave, kettle, basic cooking & dining utensils). The studio flat has great natural lights and view - my fave spot is the big balcony.

Minor downside - the top of the stairs leading to the flat is very close to the sink, so you need to move carefully around the area. I don't recommend this room for families with small children.

Overall it was a great experience, stress free stay. Many thanks to the staff who helped arrange our airport pick up and rental car. PS if there's a hairdryer it would be perfect! ;)

Thank you for your nice feedback.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us and enjoyed our excellent location, a stone's throw away from Sliema ferries and minutes away from beaches, lidos, shops, cafes, restaurants etc.

We take all your comments into account and we will do our best to improve our service.
We have since your stay improved the last step leading to the Penthouse Suite and made it more easy to access the sink.

We do apologise for not finding a hair-dryer in the apartment. This was available upon request during the time of your stay ( but now will be waiting for you during your next stay in each of our apartments).

Have a Great Day

Stayed in the blue room on the top floor. Amazing view and very quiet. The studio has two terraces which are great for breakfast or sun bathing. The bed is facing the glass window overlooking the water. The studio is also spacious with modern kitchen and bathroom. The only downside is they didn't offer basic toiletries like shower gel and shampoo.

The hotel is located in Sliema which I thought the best area to stay in Malta. Close enough to Valetta and St Julian but without the noise and mess. The only problem is it's a bit difficult to find a parking space if you have a car.

Overall, I would recommend this place. The people are great, just what you need from a host.

Dear Leo,

We thank you so much for your lovely feedback, especially from a Top Contributor like yourself to the Trip Advisor community.

Being right in the centre of Sliema in such a popular area, parking can be tricky.
However we do advise our guests to park either in the free street parking and plan to do so outside shop opening hours, or else in a choice of 3 car parks around 3-10 minutes walk from us. We are also trying to get hold of a couple of parking spaces a few doors down from us to be able to offer free private parking in the future.

Otherwise from our location you can very easily use the many direct buses to almost all of Malta, use a motor scooter, ferries or else just walk.

We hope that you will come back to visit us again in Malta.

I have to say that this is probably my fault for not looking well at the pictures but did not expect to have something like this. a lesson for the future. the bathroom is divided with the rest of the studio by glass which is really too modern for me. so when you go to the toilet its all seen. also, the shower has no glass to divide it from the rest of the bathroom so you spill water all over.
apart from this, I have to say all the best, the staff is very friendly, the location is great, everything is brand new and nice. the studio is big enough and the prices are really competitive. i would definitely recommend it, especially if one wants shared rooms because that segment if far above what I saw in other places. breakfast is also very good and the price is not high.

Room Tip: look at the pictures to see if there are any modern design stuff in the room

Dear Sonja,
Thank you for your lovely review. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay in our hostel.

I was really sorry to see that the glass feature in the bathroom of the Orange room bothered you. We have had many other guests who loved this feature. During your stay there already was a blind to give you privacy while using the bathroom if you wanted too. However after reading your comments we have reinstalled a thicker blind which gives complete privacy while using the bathroom yet still keeping what we believe is a great feature of the Orange room.



Thank you for recognising our bedroom qualities, lovely breakfast, excellent location and wonderful staff.

Again, thank you for your review and for sharing your experience with us.

Have a Great Day,
Two Pillows Boutique Hostel
