“Location, Cleanliness, Service - Awesome Osborne”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 October 2013

Stayed 3 nights in Osborne 20th to 22 Sept 2013 and was very pleased with the location. Just a few minutes walk to Republic Street, major sites and also the the ferry to Silema and Gozo and nice restaurants nearby. Hotel was very clean and newly renovated. Charlie who was at the recption desk was helpful with lots of information about everything you want to know. He spoke with such enthuasiam like the was the Owner....Valetta is a lovely place to visit in Malta and why not make your stay memorable as I highly recommend this inexpensive, friendly, clean hotel with excellent location, we will definitely stay there when we return to Valetta. Thanks Charlie, you were off on the weekend and we never had the chance to say thank you.

Room Tip: Newly renovated, any room would be great. All rooms have wifi access which is so important these da...

This met my needs in most aspects. The one drawback was the pokey bathroom and shower. The room was smallish but well appointed (other than the bathroom). I arrived with a damaged leg and arranged a chauffuered tour to see what I could in a day. Breakfast was so-so. There was a nice bar with a friendly crowd and good, reasonably priced coffee and digestives and spirits. Staff were helpful and friendly.

After many visits to Malta and Valletta, I rediscovered the beautifully renovated OSBOURNE.
A Small period hotel in a prime position in the centre of Valletta. Amazing rooftop views of city and sea. Spotlessly clean. Good simple cooking. Well trained staff. Well worth the 3star rating.

Room Tip: Higher floor best views

It was not our first stay at the Osborne and it won't be our last ! The hotel staff (each and every one of them) are friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms are very clean and have all the amenities a traveller would want. Our only criticism is the evening meal. Whilst very competetively priced, small tweaks such as hot plates for the main course and vegetables which were not over-cooked would make this a superb dining option. Overall, we love this hotel; it is well placed for the environs of Valletta which in itself is more than worthy of a visit. We will be back !

We stayed in the Osborne hotel in late Sep 2013 for our honeymoon for 4 days. Staff were very helpful, honest and efficient (especially Ronald and the chef from Huddersfield), Eclectic but fancy decorations and furniture, good proportioned room with a wonderful art-sy design. So clean and fresh. The food was really fantanstic, morning and night, and really cheap for the quality and quantity. We enjoyed the mini swimming pool to cool down after long days walking around.

So refreshing to get away from tick box cultures. The beds were also super comfy!!

Room Tip: 210- didn't have a view, but very nicely decorated throughout, quiet, easy to get to (lifts avai...

We stayed at the osborne hotel in September for 6 days. The position of the hotel is fantastic, it is a quiet area but within a short walk of all the attractions of Valletta. We had a room on the 5 th floor and the view was beautiful, sea and city. the hotel is not luxurious but old style comfortable.Our bathroom was a good size and had a bath and shower. The staff were mostly very helpful, in particular Ronnie and Charles. the only down point was the breakfast, the scrambled egg was often burnt and not at all appetising, the bacon rather hard etc..., however there are good alternatives and there is no need for anyone to be left feeling hungry. I would recommend the Osborne as an ideal way of seeing the sights of Valletta.

Room Tip: we had a superior room on the 5th floor and were very satisfied with the view in particular

Easy walk to anything you would want to see in Valletta. Staff helpful and we had a room with a great view (#602) which really made our visit. Breakfast was good, room was clean and this is a great place to stay for the money.
