I spent a week in Malta (first time), and I did not regret choosing the Hilton Malta for my stay. I had the most wonderful holiday in Malta, and I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at the luxurious and comfortable Hilton Hotel.
Located in the lively area of St Julian's, the Hilton Malta is the perfect starting point for excursions to both Valletta or the other side (Mellieha Beach or Gozo). There are lots of bars, restaurants and clubs within walking distance, and the convenient bus station Ross is within a two-minute walk from the hotel, from where you can catch buses to most destinations.
To my surprise, I was upgraded to an executive room with sea views in the contemporary part of the hotel complex. My other requests (quiet room, high floor, away from the elevator etc.) were all granted as well. Check-in went smoothly and was completed within a few minutes.
The room itself was extremely spacious and relatively modern, the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom massive (it came with a shower and a large, round bathtub). The balcony was lovely, overlooking twp of the pools and the sea. I even found a complimentary bottle of Prosecco in my room, as I had indicated I was celebrating a special occasion!
The breakfast buffet is rich, and whether you have full English or continental breakfast, you will be pleased about the great choice! You may also get a fresh omelette if you like, and if you get there a bit early (which I recommend, e.g. before 9am, when it gets busier), you can choose a table or also sit outside by the pool.
The facilities are great. The hotel boasts 5 pools, a gym, a spa area, a business centre and more - the use of all these facilities is included when you stay at the hotel. You will also get a towel card, which you can exchange for towels at the various pools and at the hotel gym. I particularly enjoyed the adult pool, which is a bit smaller, but also quieter than the larger pool, designed for families.
I had dinner at The Gazebo Restaurant one night, which was very good and resonably priced (€35,00 for a buffet, where you can eat as much as you like), but - to be honest - not the best meal I had in Malta. Still, I can recommend the place for its great atmosphere and great service.
The staff in general are extremely friendly and helpful - the concierge was very knowledgeable and always willing to help. So were the reception staff, who at one point reacted in a highly professional manner when I had problems with the internet connection.
Now, as for the internet: It is free in all public areas of the hotel, even outside by the pool. Unfortunately, it is extremely expensive (€45,00 for 5 days) if you want to have internet in your room. How this can be justified in 2014 remains a mystery to me, but as I did have some work to do, I purchased internet for 5 days. The connection was so bad and slow, I ended up cancelling my purchase and use the bar area at the lobby with my laptop.
