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... More

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.

This hotel is located on the outskirts of Silemma close to the harbour. The location is confident for visiting Valetta and is only about 20mins drive from the airport.

In the heart of Sliema so quick ferry ride across (or 15 minute bus ride) to Valetta and on harbour side for the boat trips, Waterfront fits the bill for a short break. The promenade is bustling with cafés and restaurants, very lively with many young people and only slightly marred by the ongoing building work. Slept well enough in... More
