“First time in Malta”
Reviewed 17 July 2014

Our first "family" holiday in 44 years and we decided on the Hilton in Malta, main reason being that neither of the 4 couples in our family group had been there previously and the flying time suited us. We arrived at around 1145 and was pleasantly surprised to find that all 4 rooms were ready for occupation. Whilst they were not next door they were close enough and we had not requested adjoining so everyone was happy with that. The rooms were Marina view on 5th floor and had no complaints from any of us. We booked on a half board basis and the restaurants once explained to us how they worked provided a good variety based on different "themed" nights. we did experience confusion as to where and when we booked for our evening meal to the extent that on the third night of not being booked (according to the hotel staff) and being as he was passing I had a conversation with the hotel's General Manager (Mathew Mullen) and had no problems after that. If we were to return to Malta in the future then we would definitely choose to stay in the Hilton again.

Room Tip: The Marina view rooms suited us fine and if you prefer quiet then that was provided.

My husband and I went on our second visit at the Hilton Malta at the beginning of July. We arrived in the evening and were greeted by very pleasant and helpful staff.
When we arrived at our room we were pleasantly surprised as the Front Desk Manager (Alastair) had ensured that we had a similar room to last year - it was amazing! It was a corner room, huge with two balconies: one overlooking the pool and sea and one the marina and harbour. The views are fantastic! We were both impressed with the extra special customer care we received and were made to feel special.
Breakfast was to the same high standard of any other Hilton, with a great choice and something available for everyone.
There is a varied choice of restaurants to eat during the evening and previous reviews have suggested that it was cheaper to eat outside the hotel. Personally it depends on what you want to eat and how you want to dine - on this visit we went back to The Blue Elephant restaurant, which was a wonderful experience and the food quality, service and value for money were excellent. I would definitely recommend the Blue Elephant.
I think it is important to say that all the hotel colleagues we spoke to, were very pleasant, helpful with a 'nothing is too much trouble' attitude - can't wait to return to this hotel again next year!
Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Room Tip: Try an book a corner room or one overlooking the marina.

We have been to this hotel before and it was excellent. Returned and it didn't disappoint again. Everything we wanted was there. Location is spot on for Spinola Bay. The hotel itself is lovely. The staff are all polite and friendly without exception. Nothing is too much trouble. It's not cheap but then is any five star hotel. Based with all the information I have, will I stay at this hotel again? Definitely. Looking forward to it already.

Room Tip: Room 833. High enough to be quiet even when there is a wedding downstairs round the pool. Lovely sea...

We stayed here the last two days of our holiday - bit disappointed with our arrival, no porter to help with the luggage and nobody offered to take the car. We arrived early 12.30 and were advised someone would check to see how long it would be before our room was ready - after about 20 mins of waiting we asked again, the room wasn't ready so we asked for our bags to be looked after - this wasn't offered. Check in we were told is usually about 2pm so surprised that we only managed to be allocated our room at 4.30. We booked one of their newly refurbished EXECUTIVE KING SEA VIEW rooms which was really lovely HOWEVER, yes you could see the sea you also looked straight at all the other balconies - only privacy is if you closed the curtains. As this was our last two days I felt quite annoyed as I had wasted a lot of the day waiting to be given my room only to find I didn't like it - we asked if there was an alternative to which we were told the hotel was fully booked. With that I looked on bookings.com and found that I could book a relaxation room (more cost that I was happy to pay) and that there were 3 available !! We called reception and mentioned this and they said they would offer one of these rooms but we were not finally settled until 7.30pm. In fairness the Hilton did offer this room discounted and for that we are grateful but it did take an awful long time. ON A GOOD note, the room was amazing, just sea views a beautiful balcony and we even had a balcony from the bathroom ( we were told this is the only room like it) The hotel has an awful lot of space and facilities and other than our bad start I would definitely go again should I return to Malta.

Dear JJQ1965,

Thank you for the time taken and please do accept our sincere apologies for not making your stay right for when you walked in our hotel. The experience you mentioned about your welcome did not reflect our five star guest experience but I am very glad to read your last line which stated that "definitely go again should I return to Malta".

Should we have this opportunity to welcome you back, please do email me directly as I wish to make it perfect from the check in to the check out stage.

Kind regards

Just sitting at Luqa airport on our way home having had a weeks stay at the Hilton. All the staff from the waiting staff and the room maids to the duty managers were polite friendly and helpful. We were upgraded to a sea view which was lovely to wake up to each morning. The breakfasts were very good. My only grievance is that you have to pay for wi-fi. In other hotels we have stayed at, you pay for this service in your room but it is free in specific public areas. I was surprised that this does not appear to be the case at the Hilton.

Cannot fault the Hilton Malta, what you would expect from a Hilton, staff so friendly and helpful, room lovely, facilities good, price great for staying, drinks a bit dear but would stay again when in Malta. Close to airport, 21 euros for a taxi, lots of reasonable bars/ restuarants nearby, ones by hotel pricey, pools great, and concierge very helpful with excursions. Shops at bay hotel good, but more at Tigre point. There's even a cinema with all films in English, 12 screens 5 minute walk, ideal for evening after nice meal.

Lovely in every way - food service ambience everything in fact. Our only criticism is use of the exec lounge. Hilton kindly provide this facility for afternoon tea and pre dinner drinks and nibbles. Sadly a lot of people act like ganets and in particular use the pre dinner drinks and nibbles as their main meal piling their plates high and returning for more and more and more quite sickening to watch as well as drinking to excess the complimentary alcohol beverages kindly supplied by Hilton.

Room Tip: They are all ver y good.
