We didn't stay at this hotel as we visit regularly on business and so stay at an apartment. Often I look for a gym and good places to eat and chill out. After a lousy arrival to a dirty apartment… cold and damp due to March weather and the air con refusing to blow warm air… plus a visit to probably the dirtiest hotel gym in Sliema; what a relief to actually find 5* luxury.
This is an unfair statement slightly… as I did find others eventually…. but The Palace was the perfect place at the perfect time to chill out; get warm (chill and warm in the same sentence!). A friendly and welcoming place that has a brilliant outdoor and covered terrace if you want some fresh air and/or smoke (I don't/partner does).
There is this really cool red telephone box where people leave books to share; the proviso is that you swap books so take as many as you leave.
Good coffee; nice cake; excellent choice for lunch. Easy menus in the evening if you fancy a snack… platters of vegetables with hummus, cheeses etc…. The buffet dinner at E25 pp is worth a visit if you have a good appetite; it's a little wasted on myself. But offers a great selection of salad for starters with lots of fresh fish; soup; a selection of about 8 main hot dishes from pasta to rabbit stew or beef goulash; cheese and dessert a plenty. Gets busy so worth booking.
Friendly staff; good atmosphere.
