Stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with 4 other couples, the initial rooms allocated on floor 9 rooms 933 onwards overlooked an expanse of green roof and extractor fans, 3 couples changed rooms to look out over entrance area. Our room had a sea view, just, but the balcony was depressing and got no sun at all.
The first evening we ate in the restaurant and chose a la carte, a mistake! the food took ages to arrive and when it did it was on cold plates and was just about acceptable.
Breakfast, if you like warm food have the freshly prepared eggs and take your plate from the bottom of the pile, all other aspects of breakfast was Ok and staff were very friendly.
The position of hotel is excellent and the outside areas and pool were very good. However the walk into town starts with 86 steps taking you to the road and then about 200 metres further up hill to the gates of Valletta
