Hotel Kappara is a small and friendly place. It's perfectly situated for anyone that needs to be near the university or the new Mater Dei hospital in the residential area of Kappara.
It's located on quite a steep hill so someone with walking difficulties may have problems and it’s approximately a 10 minute walk to a bus stop which is served regularly. The hotel recommends that you walk 10 minutes to the hospital to get on a bus but we found walking into San Gwann offered all the bus routes we needed including St Julians, Sliema and Valetta. It also allowed us to buy our breakfast along the way as there are plenty of shops in San Gwann. The nightlife district of Paceville in San Giljan is about a 5 minute taxi ride away.
The rooms were spacious and kept spotlessly clean and also for €10 a week there is a tiny kitchenette (which looks more like a wardrobe!) containing a small cooker, sink and fridge, which they will unlock for you to use, which means anyone on a budget can self-cater.
Our room overlooked the pool and the valley beyond and the balcony had a table and chairs and was lovely and sunny.
There is a lovely little pool and terrace area with views over the valley and the sunbeds are new and modern. There are also washrooms and an outside shower which looked very clean and modern.
I can't comment on the breakfast as we were room only but you have to walk through the dining room to get to the pool and the food looked fresh and plentiful.
We ordered cappuccinos and toasties and they were reasonably priced for a hotel along with the local beer Cisk!
The staff are lovely and very helpful and they are what make this place even more of a hidden gem.
The only downside to the hotel in my opinion was the lack of sound-proofing and so it could get a little noisy when younger clientele returned from the nightclubs or the staff were setting up for breakfast but next time I would ask for a room on a higher floor!
But do your research first in terms of location. The hotel was perfect for us and it more than fulfilled our expectations but this obviously won't be the same for everyone.
