“Fantastic Location, very basic hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2011

It was rated as a 3 star hotel but this was not the case. I have stayed in 3 star hotels in other countries and this by far was not up to that standard. The rooms were very basic but to be fair were spotless and cleaned everyday. Towels were changed everyday. It is in a great location. Staff were friendly and accommodating. When we arrived the small fridge was leaking and we reported this to the receptionist (who was very friendly) and by the Monday we had a full size replacement. Negatives were having to pay for the fridge and TV remote (€20 deposit).We tried the restaurant one evening but didn't actually eat there as there was only 2 choices of main course - one was fish and other was chicken so if you like neither you are very limited. We tried the breakfast one morning which wasn't great - but to be far it was included in our price and you get what you pay for so we weren't too bother. The cafe downstairs was fantastic with fresh delicious baguettes so we ate there. Best restaurant to eat in was Pebbles, food was delicious and steak was mouth watering, definitely recommend it. Staff were very friendly and service was great. Went to St. Julians and views there were great and plenty of shops. We ate in Paparazzi's and food was delicious - if you like fresh fish try "the aquarium" platter of 4 different fish. Also went to Valletta and again views lovely. Ate in Mamma Mia's and again food was delicious and service great. Only annoying thing was we were seating outside which was nice as it was so warm in inside but as there was no smoking in the restaurant people came outside and sat at tables beside us smoked and then went back in side which was kind of annoying as were are non smokers and were eating. Overall it was a really great place and would go back again but would pay out a bit more to get a better hotel.

If you choose to go to the Strand Aparthotel in Sliema, and do not want a room with a sea view, but remain in a inland room ask for a room on the higher floors. These rooms have more light and air :)

We had a nice budget hollyday in this hotel at the end of march . We were very pleased about the cleanlines of room and bath. The furniture is nice and ok, the air conditoned worked very well. We stayed in apart room with cooking facilities and this seem to be very convenient to us . For dinner we use this facilities and was ok. The hotel is opposite to the bay and had a very nice view to the bay and port . The rooms with bay view are a litlle more expensive. We were with a limited budget and we didn't afford but there was the posiblity to upgrade to to better room. They have a nice restaurant with a sun terace . On one evening we was at their restaurant and the food was very good and I thik not at all expensive . We can eat our breakfast every morning having a wanderful view to the port. The breakfast was ok for the money we paid. They have pay internet acces but just to ceck our mail was ok. The staff , receptionist and the administrator was very polite and nice and helped us to recover our keys (car , office and home keys )that we forgot on the last day on the front desk. The administrator sent us the keys and for us was great because we didn't have a second key of our car . It was a paid service but for us was very important . It is a nice hotel , with a very good raport price /quality and for those who want to explore Malta's beauties and have a decent place to stay is a very good choice . It is very well positioned for travel all around Malta , about 15 minutes by bus to La Valtetta ,the capital and to the buses terminal from Floriana. I would recomand this hotel for those that want to see Malta , (is a beautiful island and you have what to see for about 10 days ) not for those who came to Malta only to have sunbath because the beaches with rocks are a little bit further . If we shall come on another trip our choice will be the same hotel .

We had arranged with the hotel to be picked up at the airport and returned to the airport after the holiday and this was spot on. The staff and management at the hotel were very courteous and pleasant, and could not do enough to make sure you enjoyed your stay nothing was too much trouble. The room we had was clean and the beds were very comortable giving a good nights sleep. The food was good, and the lounge area downstairs was pleasant. We had an issue we could not resolve but the hotel solved it with ease. The views from the roof are lovely and a great place to sit with a glass of wine and watch the sun go down. We cannot recommend this hotel enough and will tell our friends and colleagues.

Room Tip: Book early as its a busy hotel

Having paid a total of £58 for a double room bed and breakfast through Travelrepublic for 5 nights we felt that this was excellent value for money. The room was clean and comfortable and room service was very good. The first night was spent in a rather noisy room with little natural light as the window looked onto a central shaft which funnelled noise into the room all night. Having complained about this, for the remaining nights of our stay we were allocated a room with a slightly better, more acceptable view at the back of the hotel which gave more light and minimal noise. (We had the opportunity to upgrade to a sea view room for 20 euros a night but as we just wanted to use the room as a base we decided against this.)
Breakfast was adequate, fruit juice, hot drinks from a machine, cereals, tinned fruit salad, yogurt, toast, cake and on alternate days either beans, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs or sausages, scrambled eggs and tomatoes. Ham cheese and salad was also available every morning. The terrace next to the dining room was very pleasant with lovely views across the harbour.
For the price paid, we felt the the value for money was outstanding.

Apart hotel, so it's confortable to cook something if you want to, nice bathroom and comfortable beds. It has a terrace, so if you spend a few days here you can sunbath there, and it also has a small pool.
