“Great Hilton experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 May 2014

Just finished a second stay at the Hilton Malta. Had a great room with ocean and marina views and made full use of all the facilitys. The breakfasts are epic in scope and size and well worth the extra, but should you have to queue up like a Macdonalds? This was an irritation rather than a major complaint. The gym is a major bonus, as is the spa, but I do wish the ggym staff were a little more vigilant regarding some of the stupid and dangerous behaviour that was in evidence everyday. The spa was great and reasonabley price too.
So, overall a great place to stay, get to breakfast early and watch yourself in the gym. Al that aside we will be back.

Room Tip: If you like boats get a room overlooking the marina

We have just returned from a week at this Hotel.Our room was on the 7th Floor and very good, spacious and clean. What we did not like was that housekeeping, on most days, did not happen until well after lunch but that is only a minor fault.
We found that the Hotel was more business orientated than as a holiday hotel. so, usually, it was very quiet - in the evenings most guest dined out (buffet food was a minimum of 29 euros) and beer at 6.60 euros was pricey.Because so few people ate in during the evenings those of us on half board were sat in an annexe of the dining room and had to collect food as it was all a self service buffet. No problems with this but we expected at least part waiter service as this is a 5 star hotel. The food was, in general, good but we have had better at 3 and 4 star hotels
on an all inclusive basis. The Thai restuarant was very good but expensive as, with just one drink the bill was just under 100 euros.
There are few decent restuarants in the vicinity so anyone on b & B basis would have to search one out
I would certainly recommend this hotel for business meetings as what we saw of them they were first class.
The facilities, pools, etc are very good so you pay your money and take your choice.

Room Tip: Always ask for a high floor room as you get a far better sea view if you do

We felt very much at home. The room had a lovely view and was always kept clean. The staff was very polite and we were welcomed. Food and cocktails were excellent not to be missed. We made use of the outdoor and indoor pool, the steam room and the gym. All in all a great relaxing experience.

First visit to Malta but was not disappointed by the choice of hotel. Twin room overlooking the marina was excellently presented with all the required facilities at hand. Great terrace/balcony overlooking the yachts in the Marina. Room cleaned properly each day with all toiletries replaced daily. Nice quite room at night - even the a/c was pretty much silent.

Great choice at breakfast (EUR20) with fresh orange juice at no extra cost. Great friendly staff who were very efficient at making sure we were provided with the essentials like endless coffee.

Hotel well maintained (immaculate) with great Reception area and welcoming staff even at 01:30 when we arrived.

Pool area very clean, plenty of sunbeds and towels, and more importantly space. Never felt overcrowded. Ample shade if required.

Taxi rank close by. Far enough out of town to be quiet but close enough to walk to all local restaurants and the nightlife.

Room Tip: Select a double/twin overlooking the marina and you will not be disappointed. Really quiet and grea...

We have stayed at this fantastic hotel for 2 years and are back this summer. The person complaining should try to use her computer less and enjoy the hotel and the excellent service.
Cannot wait to return.

We stayed here for a week in January / February 2014 for a sales training event. I was part of the organising team and this hotel was great, located adjacent to the conference centre where our training area was set up.

On arrival the lobby and reception is very impressive, check in was fast and friendly. I was given a room on the same floor as reception, just behind the lift. At first I was very concerned that I would hear all the noise going on at the lobby bar, reception and restaurant, however the room was very peaceful and it was no problem being so close to all the action.

The rooms are a very generous size and had all the facilities you would expect including tv, drink making facilities, hairdryer, iron and ironing board. There is no free wifi in the room, and from memory the rates are pretty high. There is free wifi in the lobby but the connection was sometimes intermittent and slow. My room had a view of the marina via a set-back balcony, it was nice but had no direct sunshine and would have been disappointing had I been there on vacation and not on business.

The buffet breakfast is served in the main restaurant on the floor below the lobby and serves a large array of items - there is certainly something for everyone! The restaurant looks out onto the outdoor pool and is a lovely way to start the day. I can recommend the made-to-order eggs.

The business facilities are very good, there is a business centre on the lower floor (below the restaurant) with a service desk for any requirements such as printing etc and large meeting / dining rooms. All rooms had excellent AV and were perfect for our bespoke training sessions.

I didn't visit the gym but a lot of my colleagues all enjoyed the facilities and rated the indoor pool and sauna very highly.

The hotel location is good for all the restaurants and bars of St Julians Bay, and we walked into the centre on a few occassions for a change of scenary and can recommend the restaurants around Triq Spinola - we had a lovely dinner in restaurant Gululu.

All in all a very nice hotel in a good location suitable for business travellers and holiday makers. Would I come back? Yes, but only on business. It was too formal for me to want to return for a holiday.

I stayed here one night for a business meeting. The hotel is very pleasant. Room is nice bed is comfortable. My only complaint is the hair dryer setup. As a female I need to be able to dry and style my hair. As is typical in a lot of hotels they provide a blow dryer. That's great. But as us also typical you can't blow dry your hair in the bathroom. You have to make do in front of the entrance hall mirror where the electrical socket is down near the floor. Of course the cord on the dryer is short and there's no place to set things such as your brush or hair spray etc. This really is my only complaint. The breakfast buffet is very nice featuring a fresh egg station. The pool area is very nice. Wish I was here for vacation.
