The hotel claims to be a 5* Hotel, but unfortunately it is far from it. If you are used to this level of quality and service then you will be severely disappointed. The plus point is the location (close to Valetta), but unfortunately there are lots of negative points. The room had many bad stains on the carpet, the bathroom was in need of renovation (poor finish, missing fittings, no pressure for the shower making it unusable) and a loud aircon unit that didn't cool - so will be a problem in Summer. The hotel also booked "special events" over Christmas and the New Year and was then over-run with over-night guests. It could not cope with the number of people (specifically at breakfast), so I suspect this will be the same at the height of summer. Breakfast variety was good, although food often cold and of mediocre quality. Hotel bar food/drink prices are a good 50% above everywhere else (as is generally is the case at a hotel), but the good location means you can choose to eat/drink elsewhere.
