It does the job just right for anyone visiting Valletta. You are not in the middle, just on the edge looking out over Senglea, Birgu and Kalkara. You get a great view from the open air roof top. Its all safe up there, which a wall and railing and such a lovely place to spend an evening with a bottle of wine watching the lights twinkle and boats go past all light up.
This old place has just been renovated. All new tiles, furniture, bathroom etc. Beds were firm, clean sheets and floor, flat screen TV if you are that way inclined and free wifi (which was an issue from the 5th floor, signal was weak). There were some finishing issues as the shower leaked and the sink didn't drain that quick. We were out the back which looked over the roofs of old Valetta building, this has a beauty of its own. I guess the views from the other side would be nicer and probably cost more. The included breakfast cannot be better. Loads of food, cooked properly and the usual selection from any buffet you would get in a large hotel. It certainly was enough for me and I didn't need to eat all day after enjoying the Grand Harbours effort :)
Its 5 minute from the main bus depot which will get you anywhere on the island for....1.50€ day ticket. Yes, 1.50€ for all day on any bus. What a result that is.
There seems to be some complaints about church bells in Valletta. Yes, there are lost of churches in a very small place. But most stop dinging after 9pm or so. There was just one that went on a little later. No big deal. Keep the air con on and new windows shut. If you face out to the bay, you could probably sleep with the windows open.
The staff were well friendly, made us a cuppa Saturday evening at no cost.
I will probably go back here in September when I hope to visit Malta again.
