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. We booked a double bed with a sea view. Unfortunately we were given a twin room. However we didn't let this ruin the stay and the location of the room may...

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...

From the moment we checked in last Tuesday, we were treated with the utmost politeness and friendliness. We were shown to our room by Henry who explained how to operate the room safe and other useful information. Our room was huge with two balconies and a fabulous sea view. Plenty of storage space meant we could unpack both suitcases and...

On a friend's recommendation we had a week's stay at the Waterfront in early October 2016. The room was fine---comfortable beds, plenty of storage and tea-making facilities---however a lack of toiletries in the bathroom. Noisy too overnight from outside but then it is on the waterfront. For our return flight to the UK we were being picked up at 7pm...

This hotels main asset is the staff. All are helpful and friendly. The location is great as it is close to buses and Valletta ferry.However the air conditioning only worked in our room spasmodically. We complained several times and were told that it was being 'maintained and would be on later.It appeared that the air con was not up to...

We stayed here for a week at the end of September/beginning of October. Unfortunately only found out about the refurbishment after we had booked. Booked and paid extra for a "sea view" on a higher floor. We were on 6th floor which was one out of the two. Their idea of a sea view is at the side of the...

Just spent a week in this hotel . Was very pleased with it. The staff were friendly and room was always clean. It was also nice to sit on the balcony in the evenings and just look at the views. After reading reviews before we went it said there was no tea/coffee facilities in rooms but when we got in...

After a false start of arriving late and the room was not as booked, the next day we were given a great room on the 7th floor at the front of the hotel just below the pool. The views were fantastic and the balcony at least had some breeze as we were in July and it was 42 degrees. The...

We paid extra for a waterfront room which had a nice balcony and a fabulous view, but was very noisy due to the main road that ran directly under our windows. The breakfast buffet was mediocre and the evening buffet frankly unappetising. The room was clean and comfortable, but some of the fittings needed renewing: tired shower curtain, worn towels,...
