“Good value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 March 2014

The hotel is not new, which you can see in the facilities, however that did not bother me at all, as the location was perfect. The rooms were clean, and things were working. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

The wifi mentioned on the web pages was working only randomly, so I would not rely on that. In the rooms one could connect and the other could not, works better on the lobby. Luckily there was no extra charge for the wifi and there were many available in the restaurants and bars around the island.

Faded elegance and a bit dusty round the edges, but comfortable. Single room large enough, but very noisy from other rooms.....even when they're just opening or closing doors. Very friendly staff and though it needs a bit of refurbishment, I liked the atmosphere. Water pressure very low, no point in TV as only 6 channels in Maltese, German and one English news. Breakfast on the top floor with great views of the city.

An old hotel which needs updating.
1. Not enough electric outlets in the room.
2. Wood strip above the closet was falling down and had to be pushed up to open doors.
3. No space or shelf in bathroom to put toiletries.
4. Free wi-fi internet dropped in and out.
5. Balcony door frames have never been cleaned.
6. Balcony railings dirty with cement dropped on them. Not been painted in years.
7. Very nice new laminate wood flooring.

Room Tip: Try another room other than #39.

Stayed here for one week and I honestly had the best time. My room had a huge balcony, bed was comfortable, breakfast was lovely. I had dinner on the roof top and in the la cave restaurant in basement both were delicious! Location right in the heart of Valletta, the hotel is close to everything. The staff here are so nice and friendly. Valletta is such a nice place lots to do, great for shopping.

This is an excellent 3 star hotel which exudes the charm of characteristic Maltese architecture. Recent upgrading of facilities has not detracted from the overall ambience of this delightful, small hotel. Located in an unrivalled position adjacent to the Upper Barraka Gardens and Grand Harbour, our room with a small balcony, which overlooked the square, provided interesting 'people watching' as previous reviewer noted!

We have stayed at The Castille for a number of years now and always receive the warmest welcome imaginable from all members of staff, especially those on the front desk. For us, it is our second home.

Room Tip: Front facing rooms overlook Castille Square.

The hotel is charming if a little in need of some renovation which appears to be going on. We had a room with a small balcony overlooking the square - kept us entertained for hours people watching.
We had asked for a bath which we got but it would have been nice to have a stand up shower facility within that.
The room was kept clean and tidy and beds were comfortable - we missed having tea & coffee facility in the room but not for long and there was a small fridge which was probably more useful.
The staff were all professional, helpful and friendly and the relaxed atmosphere suited us.
What a shame that the rooftop restaurant let the hotel down - the breakfast and evening dining experience was distinctly average but the location is probably one of the best in town!
We watched the Middle Sea Yacht race start while we staying - grandstand view from the restaurant balcony and all to ourselves....

Room Tip: Rooms at the front can be noisy if you want to sleep late. Fabulous location for exploring old Val...

From the first time we entered the Hotel to the moment Mark helped us load our cases into the airport taxi, nothing was too much trouble for the front of house team.
We were greeted warmly when we arrived and everytime we handed in or retrieved our key, the desk staff were friendly, responsive and polite.
We were upgraded during our two week stay and the upgraded room had a fantastic view over the Bourse, the Grand Harbour, etc.
Breakfast on the roof terrace was a great way to start the day, with panoramic views over the Island.
We only had Dinner on one evening, the choice, quality and service was very good.
The building is 400+ years old, so there are some 'features' not found in a modern Hotel, marble staircase from the lobby/reception area, cosy lounge just off the lobby, etc.
We've been visiting Malta for 30+ years, staying in places from rented apartments to modern and old style 5 star establishments, but The Castille Hotel is our preferred base.
A 5 minute walk to : Upper Barrakka Gardens, Republic Street, Bus Station or via the lift to the waterfront and water-taxi across the Grand Harbour to The Three Cities.
We've already booked our next stay!

Room Tip: A Harbour room view is the best.
