“Good stay for Great Price”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

Tropicana Hotel was just a 2 min walk from the main road in Paceville where all of the action is. While the room was very small and not the newest, it had everything I needed for a 3 day solo trip. The property itself is a little older but the price is great and there is a very nice restaurant attached to the back. The service was just fine and I would easily stay again if dropping in on Malta for another visit.

Absolutely fantastic staff,
Very attentive,
Very polite,
Very Clean,
I've been going here for 3 years, and it's a Great place for families or couples or solo.

Always Very Courteous and Polite.
Barbara at reception can solve Any problem at Any Time.
Nothing is too much trouble for the staff to help you with.
Just "have the right attitude" when speaking to people, and Don't Demand things as if your the only guest in the Hotel.

The positives are the location, it's very convenient for the busses, nightclubs, and lots of bars, restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Also a convenience store about 20 meters away. Another positive is the price, but if you read below u can understand why

Rooms are tiny, the sheets for the beds are the type u might have in your kids room. Towels were old and small. The bathroom was tiny, the shower curtain didn't reach to the ground so water was all over the bathroom.
If u want a safe u have to pay 2 or 3 euros per night, internet doesn't reach to the rooms
The lower rooms are very very noisy due to the bar on the ground floor, so stay away from the lower floors, and definitely stay away from level 1 as this floor has the kitchen, so from 5am onwards there is a lot of banging.
Talking of breakfast, don't bother. We saw it 1 morning and decided to eat out, that's how bad it looked.

Would I stay here again? Maybe if it was for 1 night and I was alone. I definitely wouldn't stay for an extended stay or if there is someone with me.
There are other hotels in the area for the same price range which I would choose

The worst hotel i have seemed in my travelling life!!!! The room was very small with a window looks out onto a wall!!! no daylight!!! the bathroom is small! all the hotel is noisy! u have an attraction park on the groundfloor and the week end the music is loud. Wifi is just available at the reception area!!!! the staff shoud be changed!! they are a bit rude except the night auditor....
Just one positive point is the restaurant! i think it s one of the best place in malta and the hotel is located near the st julians bus stop ideal for discovering the island.
Breakfast was very poor, no hot chocolate and orange juice is vile.
I was very disappointed by this hotel!!!
Please avoid it!

We booked the Tropicana rather last minute, but found it to still be great value for money. It was in a really nice part of Malta where there is plenty of restaurants and clubs very close by. In fact, Saint Julian's is the party centre of Malta. Our room was actually really cold, the shower was inconsistent, but other than that, our stay here was perfectly acceptable!
If you wanted wi-fi, you needed to be in the lobby and bar area, but seeing as though breakfast was in the bar/restaurant, this suited us. The free breakfast was the standard cereals, cold meats and cheeses, plus breads, juices and coffees. So nothing special, but considering what we were paying, it was more than adequate. We received really nice, friendly service from the staff, and we generally enjoyed our stay here.

Room Tip: Ask for a quieter room so you don't hear the night club down stairs

Bedroom was average but it did have a mini fridge. Overall the hotel was beautiful and the food was incredible. Nice place to have a drink and relax with a DJ. Staff was friendly and helpful, location was great easy access to bars and shops but on a quiet street so you can have a nice sleep. Great waterfall outside with palm trees.

Room Tip: Great on a budget. Quiet rooms but close to entertainment.
