Valletta doesn't have a lot of mid-range hotels - this seems to the best one. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the bus station, on the flat, at the end of a side-street leading off the main shopping street. You can easily walk to all the tourist attractions in the city. It has a restaurant (which looked OK but I didn't try it), and there are other eating places nearby.
My room had been recently refurbished and was basic but absolutely fine - very clean, TV, hairdryer, tea/coffee tray. The breakfast room was rather busy but there was plenty of choice.
The reception staff were reasonably friendly, and I would certainly recommend this hotel if you can get a good deal via an internet booking site.
If coming from the airport, don't waste money on a taxi - get the number 8 bus from outside the terminal building. It's only 47 cents, and travelling in one of the ancient buses is a real experience.
