          In answer to the recent response to my review: I noted my complaints immediately upon arrival and did not receive a response from the management until my last day, when I had already written my review (in hopes of finally getting a reply). There was absolutely no note of any renovation planned when I made the booking on June 10 (only a month before my stay). Management added one clarifying note to the booking website *only after* I had made a complaint (on July 15), and now is lying that this information was always available. The paltry (less than 10 euro) discount on my 3-day stay grudgingly and finally offered by management hardly makes up for all the loss of time and enjoyment I got because I made the mistake of staying at the British Hotel. Don't make the same mistake! Shame on the owners!

          You are not alone... Many people have had thier fingers burned at this place due to sharp practice by the owners who seem to have nothing but contempt for folks who pay them good money.

          Sehr geehrte/geehrter pernilleFlensburg, darf ich Sie noch einmal bitten, mir zu schreiben, warum Sie zum British Hotel Valletta in Ihrem Text nicht auf die absoluten Tonlage mit Topaussicht auf den großen Naturhaufen, auf die unglaubliche Freundlichkeit der Hotel-Crew sogar mitten in der Nacht oder auf das ehrwürdige Gebäude eingehen, das eins der ersten Hotels in der maltesischen Hauptstadt war und nun Gott sei Dank wieder restauriert wird - anstelle einer derart bösen Kritik? Das ist für mich unverständlich, wohnen Sie sonst in 5-Sterne Hotels? Viele Grüsse von Katti

          Lieber Traveller, das ist schade, dass Sie meinen, es hat Ihnen nicht gefallen im British Hotel, schade auch, dass Sie die absolute Hilfsbereitschaft der Hotel-Crew, sogar mitten in der Nacht nicht gewürdigt haben und für diese Tonlage mit der grandiosen Aussicht auch so wenig gute Worte hatten. Ich hatte wieder eine wunderbare Zeit im British Hotel, habe ein gutes Frühstück im Luciano`s in der nahegelegenen Merchantstreet 22 genossen, das nur drei! Minuten vom Hotel entfernt liegt. Das altehrwürdige British Hotel wird gerade hinter verschlossenen Toren restauriert, wovon Sie nichts, aber auch gar nichts mitbekommen. Das Hotel war eines der ersten in der maltesischen Hauptstadt Valletta und es wird zum Glück wieder hergerichtet. Übrigens, die Hard Rock Bar an der Valletta Waterfront ist in ca 15 Minuten fussläufig zu erreichen, waren Sie dort oder einer andern Bar am Grand Harbour oder auf einen Cocktail in der Straitstreet Valletta? Viele Grüsse von Katti
