Hilton Malta

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 23 January 2013

It's not often we would return to a place for holiday but this hotel and St Julians were so nice we would go back in a heart beat. It's worth spending the extra bit of money to get the 5* rewards you have with the Hilton. OK drinks and food are expensive but there are so many restaurants and bars literally on the doorstep you don't need to pay the excessive prices of the hotel. Go for the hotel breakfast, it's more than worth it.

Room Tip: Sea view is a must

At £250 a night I expected honestly a little more ! The Room was very nice with a good 6 foot bath and good size bath and shower room. But the vanity sink was too small to be useful. One of the "fluffy Robes" their brochures harp on about was very shabby with a nasty little blood stain ! urgh. I threw it in the bin to save them the bother. The balcony was nicely presented and well lit with pleasant sea views over toward the casino and jetty. There was a nice range of fruity teas and the overall felling was relaxed and comfy. Breakfast was a lovely relaxing affair, overlooking the palm shaded pools and sea. But the greasy streaky bacon was aweful !!!
good range of muffins, cereals and hot goods. Quite nice coffee with good service too.
However down stairs was very Business like with lots of suits and brief case types hovering around.
The few sad looking people there with kids looked apologetic for having them and said hush a lot. NO NEED ! we were all kids. the children looked bored senseless.
The bar Pianist in the evening was excellent but a little loud.
The Bar:- 6.5 Euros a pint is about 3 times going rate for a pint of CISK. Try Peppermint Park, round corner for 2 Euros a pint for noisy fun or The Avenue for 3 Euros a pint in a much better restaurant and save a few quid.
Zofia and Nicola were very helpful and spoke perfect English. On a down side all the outside pools were shut despite the fine weather.

Room Tip: Ask for a free wifi code or simply sit by the Piano for very fast speed lock free access. The lifts...

Stayed at this hotel for a few days at an extremely reasonable off season rate. The room was very, very nice, the beds super comfortable, etc. Plush. Breakfast was very good, but unfortunately I forgot to choose that package so had to pay out of pocket. As I said my room was severely reasonable, but the trade off was that they put me an extremely long way from check in. Even the concierge was laughing when he asked what room I was in, mentioning that it was about as far as you could walk in the hotel.

As for the layout of the interior, it is interesting with restaurants on sort of overlapping levels. I think it is meant to sort of have a nautical theme that way. I liked it. Another good thing is that the Malta Sightseeing bus literally stops right in front of the hotel. I believe there is only one other hotel on the entire northern route in which the bus stops so close to.

Definitely recommend the hotel, and would like to come back when it is warm enough to take advantage of the pool and surroundings.

Dear callmeishmael,

Thank you very much for your observations about our hotel.

Yes indeed, some rooms can be quite far away from reception. In total we have 404 rooms and 6 family suites and the hotel is built on 31 000 square metres of land but should you plan to come back to the hotel, do not hesitate to contact me directly and we will allocate a room closer to our main facilities.

Hope to see you soon!
Kind Regards

Close to the airport, well organized, missing pringles in the minibar. The Rooms are wonderful if facing the sea, but "old style" Expecially the bathrooms. Also close to Many pubs. The food IS very good and the staff IS professional and very kind. A perfect location for business conventions and meetings

We Stayed at Hilton Malta Dec 28 for 3 nights, checking out on Dec 31, 2012/almost 2013..in a delux king with seaview and balcony. Our 16 year old daughter was with us and we needed a room with space, and this was perfect--the view, gorgeous, prefer it to the harbor view. No charge for the rollaway, our king bed was a dream, and all staff were amazing. We were celebrating our 25 year anniversary and were welcomed with a bottle of champagne and delicious little cakes after arrival. For a large hotel, the minute touches make all the difference..the public bathrooms were spotless, not even a tissue in the bin each time, shining floors, welcoming faces, expedient housekeeping services and informative Concierges and front desk staff. Hilton is at the top of driveway and the Hop on/Hop off bus stops just at the bottom, very convenient. As well within 100m of the hotel is a convenience shop with water bottles, snacks etc. The hotel kindly makes room in the in room mini fridge for your personal things. It was too cool to swim when we were there, but the pools, harbor and grounds are amazing and well tended.. lots of outside space . The breakfast that was included daily was a massive affair with so many choices you'd have to get there early to see everything. The service was always friendly and efficient, food was fresh and hot, and plentiful and in warmer times a huge patio for ourside dining. The Blue Elephant restaurant on the lower lever was outstanding Thai and we ate here 2 times we enjoyed it so much, as well the Italian restaurant was also good and reasonable prices for hotel restaurants. I would highly recommend Hilton Malta and would stay again in a heartbeat! Thanks for a wonderful weekend!!!

Room Tip: Maybe more to see in the harbor view rooms, we preferred the crashing ocean and sea view tho.
