I´ve been there thre times. The location is excellent, in St. Julian´s, near the bus stop. The staff are nice and friendly. The rooms are wide and clean. They´re a rooftop pool and so near the beach. I´ll go again.

I have stayed 3 nights in this hotel, in April 2015. The location is excellent. It's based in Upper Ross bus stop, in San Julian. You can get to it directly from the airport, with bus X2. You can get directly from the hotel bus stop to Cirkewwa, Valetta and St Paul's bay. Basically, this is rather a 2 stars... More

We recently spent a few days in Malta and stayed at this 3 star hotel, bear in mind 3 star in Malta is usually 2 star in other places. We had a very pleasant stay, and the staff were very helpful and friendly. Internet is only available in the lobby, otherwise you pay for it in your room. They served... More

This hotel follows the dictum location, location, location. it is right in the centre of things, yet in a very quite area. Just turn the corner and in under a minute you will have tens of restuarants, bars, clubs surrounding you. Then return back to the peace and quite of this property, Highly recommended.

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are cleaned every day and you get two clean towels every day. The hotel is located in the real centre of life in Malta with a lot of supermarkets and souvenir shops around. It is easy to get to Valletta by bus, it is even easier than from Sliema (some buses...

This hotel is located in an excellent place close to the tourist centre of St Julians. The street where it is found is quiet so your sleep is not disturbed. The rooms are comfortable and the staff helpful. The decor of the dining room is slightly old but otherwise the food is good. The pool area provides a nice view... More

The staff was very friendly and helpful, but wouldn't stay here again. The pool that looked amazing in the brochure was small and full of sand, beds+pillows very uncomfortable and the room smelled of cigarettes. But the location was very good! Not worth the money we paid for this.
