We booked 4 nights 14-18 February for a sea view room with balcony, room 303. I was quite apprehensive after reading previous reviews but our stay turned out alright. In large part I think that was because we got the most expensive room (€25 for one night - still a relative bargain after getting used to UK/Continental prices) and, as our luck would have it, our room was the largest one on our floor. Decor is basic and lights are fluorescent and dim (bedside lamps are much better), we had no idea how to open the safe in the room, curtains couldn't fully close, the mini-fridge didn't seem to be working and wifi was nonexistent because our room was the furthest away from the router - had to go out to the corridor to get a connection. The room was very spacious, though, with a roomy cupboard, a working air-conditioner/heater, and a great view of Balluta Bay. Bed might be too firm for some but I thought it was alright - covers could be slightly better though. Considering the size of the room the bathroom was on the small side and rather poorly-designed - when I sat on the toilet my knees went right up against the sink. The door to the tiny shower couldn't fully close which led to floods each night. At least the place was cleaned and towels changed every day.
Didn't get breakfast so can't comment. Reception staff were generally pleasant, and the lady at tourist information was friendly, although she couldn't tell us anything about bus services. Oh yes, the hotel's single lift is tiny - you could fit in probably two people and one piece of baggage. Pretty pleasant location, close enough for Paceville and Sliema. Bus stop 200m away with links to Valletta, Rabat (Mdina), Dingli, the airport, and in the other direction to Paceville and Bugibba. City of London pub just down the road a nice little place for a drink.
