Picked this hotel purely based on price and rating. Traveling solo I wanted super cheap and adjusted my expectations accordingly.
The room is basic and clean. Beds weren't the softest but perfectly fine. The furniture was definitely run down. The vanity unit really showed age as did the room in general and the bathroom. That being said, everything was clean and what I expected based on the reviews.
Stayed on a half board basis. Evening meal wasn't spectacular but it filled a hole. Starter of soup or pasta. Main meat/fish option with veg (I see why people complained about frozen because its your generic mixed veg - not great if you're not a fan of peas - and various potato shapes). There's also salad which I preferred to fill on. Then a sweet like ice cream or creme caramel.
Breakfast was the lowest point. Had toast and cake first morning then didn't bother going back for it. Cheap processed hams and cheeses looked artificial and weren't very nice. Cheap proper breakfasts can be had in Bugibba square.
No view from the balcony or sun on it either. Didn't bother me because I wasn't there for that but those who are should probably request one of the high sea view rooms.
That being said it was so cheap that I still classed it as value for money. Staff were friendly, always said hello and free wifi is always a bonus.
Hotel is a little hard to find initially but is actually very close to bus stop and Square. For a clean bed and safe basic place to lay your had the Relax Inn Hotel is fine. If you want more than that (or intend to watch tv for anything more in English than the news) then it probably won't be your cup of tea.
I love Malta for the ease of getting around on the ridiculously cheap buses and with realistic expectations I would still consider returning to this hotel again.
