This hotel has wonderful, but sadly faded, kitschy charm. The staff were all warm and friendly, the location was great, and the view from my window was beautiful. I worried a bit when I saw that earplugs were one of the provided toiletries, but they proved unneeded. If refurbished, I would seriously consider staying there for all my San Francisco...

Stayed here with a sea facing balcony from 20/27 October 16. In the weeks prior to arrival I read some very poor Trip Advisor reviews saying that the hotel was run down and badly in need of re-furbishment. The reviews were so bad I tried to find alternative 4* accommodation with a sea facing view. Due to the town being...

Had a good break, food disapointing. We were always early for breakfast and took dinner just after 6.30. The restuarnat was open until 9.30 so how much was cooked in advance.

Friendly staff, location convenient for visiting Valetta, but: room reservation not respected (reserved a room with sea view at a higher price, got a room with SIDE sea view at the same higher price), rather poor overall quality of room, very average breakfast.
