If you're thinking of a quiet, clean, friendly place to stay in Malta, Paceville probably wouldn't be high up on your list. It's a noisy, unkempt little place, full of p1ssed-up teens, grotty little street taverns and t1tty bars. However, tucked away in the morass of debauchery is this place - an oasis of calm in a desert of yellow raybans, orange football shirts and pink Englishmen.
My wife and I stayed for three nights and were impressed by the cleanliness of the room and hotel, the decor (very tastefully modern), prompt and friendly service and great selection at the buffet breakfast. There is no in-house restaurant, but they provide a discount at one of the popular places nearby (The Avenue, literally two minutes' walk away).
The rooftop pool is a highlight (though 'pool' is stretching it - if you fancy a swim in it you'll need the attention span of a goldfish as it's only about 50 feet long) and even though you are literally slap-bang in the middle of party-town, it's still pretty quiet if you get a room facing the courtyard rather than the street.
All in all, a bargain - don't overlook it in favour of poncier-looking places.
