Reviewed 27 May 2014

I read all the reviews on Tripadvisor and therefore chose this hotel.
I stay over 200 nights a year in hotels.
This hotel does have a nice lobby. It stands out in St. Julians. And the staff were very friendly.
But the rooms are very basic (other than the flat-screen TV). The views are all terrible. The beds are uncomfortable. And the breakfast is absolutely atrocious. The food is old and scary to touch. Furthermore we are quite certain that we got bedbug bites from this hotel.
I do not recommend for stays in Malta! It is also very expensive for what you get.

I was in Malta last week and I spent 4 night at Valentina Hotel in Paceville. St. Julian. This hotel is super cool, newly refurbished, ideal location in the centre of St. Julien. I had a fantastic superior doulble room at the 6th floor, next to the terrace with the swiming pool. Very quite, and spacious, clean and comfortable room. I recommend it definitely. The staff is very kind, in particular ALex who work at the reception. He is extremely professional and super Gentile! I really do not understand how such wonderful hotel is just a three star hotel?? Everything is perfect there! Nothing else to say :-)

Stayed here for the long weekend in May. The staff are very friendly and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Very easy checkin process. We also used the airport pickup service, which was waiting for us on arrival and the car was clean.

Our room was nice, with everything you need. The bed was very comfortable. Plentry of pillows, excellent shower. Room was well designed and air conditioning was ample.

The only thing I didn't like about the room is the toilet/shower set up. The toilet does not have a wash basin so you need to use the bathroom, which is fine in itself but you can't have the bathroom door and toilet door open at the same time - which means (obviously) having to touch both handles to get to the wash basin. And the other thing to remember is the design of these two doors, if one is left open - you do end up catching your hand. But maybe that was just our room (205).

The rooftop pool and bar is nice and worth a visit.

Breakfast - great selection and you can also order an omelette. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Tables and area is very clean.

Bar area - nice bar area, comfy couches and plenty of places to rest and enjoy your cocktails. Bathrooms downstairs were not clean and did not have ensentials (loo paper), which was rather dissapointing.

Just got back from Malta (May 2014). We stayed at the Hotel Valentina for four nights and as so many other reviews have made clear the hotel is all round excellent. We found it an ideal location, the staff are friendly and efficient, the hotel just has a good feel and atmosphere about it. The room we had was nicely appointed always cleaned to a high standard and the beds very comfortable. Breakfast selection was very good and both the pool bar and main bar services excellent. We would highly recommend.

Trip Advisor ratings are rarely wrong and so it is with Hotel Valentina, St Julians, Malta.
It really is a spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated boutique hotel, I get the impression that no expense was spared in every detail of this beautiful property.
My room was very comfortable with separate wc and shower room, small balcony and decent wifi.
Breakfast was fair enough, not a British full hot array, but I'm sure anyone would find what they wanted for breakfast anyway.
Beautiful bar area, great staff, the small roof pool and terrace were great with a very friendly barman behind the bar. The strange thing was that the pool area was empty most of the time - where did everyone go during the day?
The only downside was the fact the hotel is in St. Julians, disgusting filthy hole of a place.

Room Tip: Don't take one of the rooms with a balcony at the annexe part of the hotel! I was in 101 - screa...

Long story short - everything was perfect! The location is pretty nice, because even though it is in a "party area", the small street is quiet and the guests of the hotel have the opportunity to sleep well. The breakfast is great, room was great - nothing more to say :)

This is a great hotel with excellent facilities. The staff were brilliant; from check-in to check out. We haven't experienced such lovely, friendly service like this before. The hotel is well placed for what St Julians has to offer. The room was bright and modern and immaculately clean as was the rest of the hotel. The rooftop pool area and the bar downstairs are great spaces to spend some time.
