My wife and I stayed here for Chtristmas 2013. A great central locatrion for everything Valetta has to offer but it really lets itself down in the "restaurant". Breakfast was awful and wholly repetitive. Burned eggs, stale bread for toast (which one had to toast oneself on an EXTREMELY slow machine), no idea on how to place tea and coffee and sugar and milk in the same place!!!! So very difficult to fill cups. Very poor quality of produce too. We booked a Christmas Eve dinner for two (at €26 each excluding drinks). Our meal was terrible! A bowl of watery soup and a few slices of lamb on a COLD plate for main course. We couldn`t eat the salads as none had been refrigerated and had been standing for at least 3 hours when we entered the restaurant. The vegetables were "tinned" - I ask you who could eat that!!! We complained and were told to "see Brian" (whoever he was) on Thursday. Thursday came and went and no sign of the supposed Brian. On departure we were so fed up we just paid and left. €52 Euros for two slices of lamb each is NOT good value. The Restaurant layout was a joke too. Enough said about that aspect. Our room was comfortable and clean. Our room cleaner couldn`t have been more helpful but would do better at a better Hotel bless her.Never again. Stay there by all means but eat EVERY meal somewhere else!
