“Boutique hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2014

Very modern boutique hotel, really enjoyed my stay. Several people told us the area has a reputation for being loud and nois but we found the hotel and the street it is on very quiet.

Breakfast is very nice and served in the hotel, the restaurant associated with the hotel is also very good but about 100 yards/meters up the street and around a corner. The food was excellent and well priced.

The bedrooms are quite small but don't feel cramped because of the layout. The beds were comfortable.

I stayed there because of the high Trip Advisor rating and it was accurate ! It is my new favorite hotel in Malta !

The hotel can organize a taxi pickup from the airport, which is excellent and very good value. We used the hotel's taxi service almost every day and it was about half the price of the normal "white taxi" service. We actually skipped hiring a car while there !

The pool is weird/cool looking ! I didn't try it in January, but I imagine it is like swimming in a fish bowl. The edge of the pool is glass. It was clean, but small and on the roof. It would make me nervous if I had my children there. The glass boundary wall next to the pool/at the edge of the building is not very high, I guess in order to give a good view. There is a sun deck and a bar that is open in season.

all in all, a very good experience. Januray is runing usually low in Malta, I enjoyed an upgrade to a superior room, which makes it even more value for the Euro. The entire Hotel is very modern and stylish, Clean, Service friendly. I was in more than 20 Hotels in Malta, this is my favourite now.

Room Tip: Teh restuarant is not in the hotel, but less than 100 away. Also a good impression, manylocal there.

Just stayed here for three nights for a surprise birthdy party, we usually stay at the Hilton but the reviews were so good on Trip Advisor thought we'd try it.
We arrived late on Thursday night 23rd Jan and were dealt with immediately by reception.
Hotel foyer very impressive and immaculately clean at all times.
We took one of the three lifts to the third floor and located our room straight away. The room number displays are wel lit and easy to find. The security key option when using the lifts and opening room doors ensures no uninvited people can access rooms.
We had a double room with balcony, which was plenty big enough and very well furnished.
King size bed. lots of lighting options, enough coat hangers (when ladies are travelling together this is very important). There was a seperate toilet and shower room which were cleverly housed in the decorations. Excellent standards of cleanliness and supply of toiletries. Information booklets and Avenue menus would make it easy for new visitors to the Island, but we have been lots of times so didnt need them.
The breakfast was quite good and there was sufficient choice. Plenty of coffee and tea and every day, we requested different eggs to the ones on display and they were brought straight away with no bother at all.
The bar area is lovely and very well stocked. The drinks we had mixed, were perfect.
My travelling companion is a smoker and there are plenty of smoking areas within the hotel grounds.
We checked out the pool area, but obviously this was not in use in January. It was again spotlessly clean and has a really nice bar area. Although we were staying in Paceville on a weekend, once we had closed the balcony doors we couldnt here any outside noise.
I would certainly recommend this boutique hotel as a place to stay in Malta. Very near to the bus stops and plenty of good walks close by.

Stayed for five nights in January. Very clean, modern hotel in a quiet side street in Paceville. Service was very good, especially from the bar and front desk. Easy transport connections - Malta has an amazing bus service - 1.50 euro all day for all routes. Paceville and St Julien's is very built up. But get to Mdina (hour on bus) and up to the ferry for Gozo (just over the hour) to visit the smaller island for some countryside.

My partner and I stayed at the Hotel Valentina over Christmas 2013 and enjoyed every minute. The staff are friendly, helpful and courteous, the hotel modern and clean. The weather wasn't great during our visit and St Julian's was a bit too commercialised for our tastes, but staying at the Valentina made up for it, where we felt very welcome and comfortable. Lovely, well appointed rooms with very comfortable beds, which are cleaned to a hight standard daily. A great selection at breakfast, the staff catered to my allergy to dairy by providing soya milk each morning and where also very helpful in providing additional items (such as sliced lemon for tea) when asked. The Avenue restaurant, which is run by the same family deliver room service for free and you get a discount as a hotel guest when you eat there, which was great. There is also a stunning pool and sun terrace on the roof, which we did not get the benefit of using due to the winter weather, but which would be fantastic in warmer months.

Room Tip: The hotel is near a few bars, which can get quite noisy at night, so a room on a higher floor might...

Excellent in every domain - location, rooms, cleanliness, service, breakfast, value
Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay here again.
Nice transfer service by the driver Tyrone, who drove me to the airport for a very early flight.
