115 The Strand Hotel and Suites

Reviewed 24 May 2013

When we arrived in Sliema we were very tired so we really appreciated the kind and helpful way we were dealt with by the receptionist and the manager. The restaurant staff were some of the friendliest and helpful we have met in a long time. Unfortunately the air conditioning was not functioning as effectively as we would have liked. The mattresses do need to be changed as we could feel the springs. The cost was good value so we didn,t complain about the beds. The view from the dining room was amazing.We really enjoyed seeing it as we were eating. The Romanian waiter was pleasant and friendly as were the Spanish waitresses.

Room Tip: Make sure you get a room with a view as it can be depressing in a dark room .Also it was hot in ther...

It was the worst hotel i have ever stayed. the first night we received a room with the courtyard, which was like the size of the elevator shaft and above us was 7 floors, so no air or sunshine was coming to our room. Moreover, this "courtyard " was full of culverts with rushing water .Furthermore, we felt the burning plastic stink and the heat from the air conditionier shaft and behind the wall could be heard outside blustering fan sound. Room was changed, but reluctantly. Another room at least was worth the price paid, while still all the time the fan noise was heard, the bed mattress was so old, that we felt the springs, the room was very small and no refrigerator or kitchen tool. However,I could not find any wrong comment about this hotel before going there, but if you want to ruin your vacation, I would highly recommend this hotel. You can find some photos of these perfect courtyards as they call this place.

We have just returned from a short break to Malta (4 nights) as we couldn't get away for longer and we were very happy at 115 The Strand. We booked through Chevron so opted for a sea view room, b & b. We were on the 2nd.floor so had splendid views across to Manoel Island and Valletta. The weather was fantastic so we had breakfast and dinner sitting outside in the roof terrace restaurant on the 8th.floor. We opted to eat in for dinner (9.90 euros less 10% disc.per person) and were more than happy with the choices and the restaurant staff were very friendly and obliging. Our criteria was for somewhere with a sea view, clean and easy to get out and about from, relaxed and informal. We never bother about the t.v. so can pass no comment on that! Spent 3 days exploring the island with the ridiculously cheap day bus ticket (2.60 euros) Tip: - the buses into Valletta direct are often full so it is often easier to get the bus to the hospital (Mater Dei) and then from the hospital to Valletta - better than standing squashed like cattle in a truck!! Hope to go back next year for another short break.I have rated it average for sleep quality only because Sliema never sleeps so there is always some outside noise but that is the nature of a hotel room on the Strand and we especially wanted a sea view!

This was a return visit to Malta for us. I was travelling with my elderly Mother and Father. I found the Strand on the internet, and read many of the review, some justified and some not so. From my Vary first interaction with Pauline Paris and her team, I knew I ahd picked the right place. They were very friendly and helpful and indeed assisted us with our booking very smoothly. We arrived late on the Saturday evening and there was an evening shift receptionist on. We had upgraded our original booking from a rear Studio to a front of hotel Sea View Apartment. Unfortunately there had been a mix up and we were in the studio on the First night,.The staff were extremely apologetic. The Next morning we were moved with no fuss and a refund of the cost of 1 nights stay was refunded. When we opened the door and saw the sea view it made everything else seem so trivial. It was beautiful. Pauline and her team were excellent, and really made our holiday worthwhile. 115 the Strand will be a definite destination for us again in the future, we were just sad we didn't book for two weeks. The only negative was the food in the evening, and the food was not great, but then again it was very cheaply priced, Breakfast was great with plenty to choose from. There are two shops and a cafe on site and these provide with you lots of bit and pieces that you might need. We will for sure be staying with Pauline and team again. My mom loved it and she can be hard to please some times, but as she said, she could relax with a glass of wine in the evening on the balcony looking at the Marina of Maneol Island, Valletta and the sea front of Sliema and it made life seem so much better. The hotel can book any tour you want around the island and can sort out car hire and so on and there is bus stops right across the road. My mom got a bit of cold for a couple of day and the staff were very helpful with the pharmacy and so on and each day we were asked how she was feeling. I would say that the bed linen should be changed more regularly also, but this is only a minor thing. I did however manage to over hear a rather load English couple making a complaint over what appeared to be a rather trivial thing regarding the television. The were quite load and obnoxious. However the receptionist handled the matter in a very professional and friendly way and never once reacted to what was an unfounded and apparently unreasonable complaint. I was very impressed by this. It was the only time I heard anyone staying there have any complaint. We had a television in our room and the remote was obtained form the reception with a €20.00 deposit. (there must have been issues in the past) however we never turned the TV on one once, why would you want to with such a beautiful view outside your balcony door. But on the whole, we thought it was an excellent place to stay. Close to bus and the seafront of Sliema, views of Valletta, restaurants and bars in Sliema, great friendly and professional staff, and great value for money. I would however highly recommend only booking a sea view one bedroom apartment. Trust me it is money well spent. Thank you 115 the Strand, we can wait to book with you again and looking forward to a two week stay next year

Room Tip: Book only a Seaview One Bedroom Apartment. That is not to say a rear studio is not comfortable but l...

The hotel is very confortable, service is very kind and breakfast as how I was especting, served on a terrance with a fantastic view on the bay.
Its location is at walking distance from bus stop, and buses from there can takes you everywhere on the island.
Really an excellent choice.

Room Tip: Absolutely ask to have a roos with sea view !

This is our second stay at this splendid hotel. Our accommodation consisted of a self catering apartment on the fifth floor and faced the harbour.

We could not find fault with anything at all. The rooms are clean, spacious and the staff are always helpful, courteous and very professional.

The hotel facilities are good. There are two shops that provide coffee, cakes and newspapers.

Local restaurants provide excellent value for money meals and there are local shops to provide anything else such as milk, bread and tea bags for self catering.

Local buses provide easy access to St Juliana and the beaches. Although Sliema itself provides really nice shops to keep everyone happy. The local Marks & Spencer's has a Fab coffee shop and overlooks the harbour and ferries. The water taxis can drop you over to Valletta easily and you can do all the tourist trips and sightsee

The Strand hotel is ideally located to provide an extremely relaxing holiday. We will be going back for sure. A big thank you goes to Pauline Paris and her team. :-)

Great location for visiting Valletta and other parts of Malta without wanting to spend excessive amounts of money. The hotel is usefully situated near bus routes and, just as importantly, near to the Sliema - Valletta ferry (a brilliant way to travel and MUCH less crowded than the buses). Some of the staff were very polite and helpful, some seemed less able to interact with the guests so well. We had an apartment with a great view across the harbour to Valletta - well worth the extra for the view and for a little extra space, however the self-catering facilities were poor (no microwave, a two-plate hob, no washing up liquid or dishcloth although we were provided with a tea towel) and we were surprised that the ageing tv could not be seen from the sofa. Breakfast was included in our deal - needed to time this right in order to avoid long queues for the toaster and coffee machine. The continental breakfast was adequate. We did eat here one evening as well, dinner was quite economical and we did not try it on a second occasion. There are several cafes nearby where you can get free wi-fi - amazing that this hotel still charges an incredible amount for wi-fi use which it seems very difficult to justify. Unfortunately, for the first few days of our visit there was also a student group using the hotel - they seemed to find it very difficult to settle down in the evenings, it was remarkably quieter after they had left. Would we stay there again - yes, but only if we felt that we couldn't afford anything better.

Room Tip: Rooms at the front with a view across the harbour towards Valletta are well worth it even though the...
