Enjoyed my stay. Large hotel with lots of facilities and space, close to the centre of Valletta, although you do have to walk up steps and a hill! However, it’s downhill on the way back and the hotel has a fantastic location overlooking the harbour.
Room was large with everything you needed, plus a balcony with views of the harbour. Although some noise from outside, with the patio doors closed the room was well soundproofed and quiet.
Only 2 lifts so had to wait a little at some peak times. I couple of minor issues with staff efficiency (couldn’t find taxi booking for airport, I was sat at breakfast table already in use, check-in slow), none of these were major issues and just gave me a little more time to enjoy the stunning views over the harbour from so many of the hotel’s windows and terraces.
Great stay and would be very happy to go back.
