A 5* hotel worthy of its class. Room (a superior with balcony patio) was spacious and well-equipped, bed comfortable and view from (sunny) balcony over Marsamxett Harbour was fantastic. Breakfast buffet was excellent (egg chef if you need) and inside bar spacious and comfortable with friendly service and (for a hotel of this class) not particularly expensive - local beer 3 euros.
Outside pool looked inviting (with its own bar) but we visited in April, when temperature didn't merit an outside swim or use of loungers - though some hardy souls did try - but inside pool perfectly adequate.
This hotel is just outside the old Valletta walls and a hilly walk into the centre of the city takes about 15 mins. But its's practically impossible to walk about Valletta without going up or down hills, so the hotel's impressive entrance flights of steps prepares you well (there are, of course, plenty of elevators in the hotel itself!).
You could treat this place as a resort in itself, but one of its great advantages is in the quick access it gives to Valletta - a charming city you shouldn't miss!
