Set within Valletta's ancient fortifications, the Osborne Hotel is a 5-minute walk from Malta's St. John’s Cavalier and St. John’s Co-Cathedral. The rooftop swimming pool provides great views.
Score from 670 reviews Very good
Room was luxurious, beds and bathroom were great, staff excellent. Swimming pool , gym top of the line Location cant be better
carpets in the rooms were worn out ..not fit for a 5 star there should be a play room with table tennis table, card games etc to keep the kids busy when its raining outside....there is no such room as on date
Location, swimming pool, breakfast. Room was ok, but for the money we paid could've looked better.
Reception staff not very friendly - we asked them to book a taxi for us to go to the airport and they sent us to a separate desk where there was a big cue. It was our last vacation day and we were on a hurry to go to Valletta to visit some more places, we told them so and asked them only to write down our request&departure time and hand it over to the taxi desk later, but they completely refused so we had to find our own taxi on the street in the end as we didn't want to waste time on waiting in front of a desk. By the way, the taxis on the street are cheaper than the ones you get to&from the hotel!!!
I made a wrong reservation at first for taking Nov. as Dec. I didn't realize this until I got the billing message from the credit card center. I was totally freaking out. But after communicating with the reservation manager, they kindly modified my reservation information and didn't charge extra money. Very nice!
Food excellent Overall great place to stay.
No showers in the spa area have to shower in your bedroom. Sauna should be included in the price, not haveing to pay extra. Fan did not work in the bathroom.
Possible to swim in Mediterranean. Very good breakfast and dinner.
The view from my room was spectacular. The selection of breakfast options is huge. Staff was very helpful, even printing a document for me after hours when the business center was closed. I hope to return to Malta, and if I do I will stay here again.
As with most luxury hotels, prices are fairly high. The hotel is close to the center of Valletta, but directions are not clear and walking is not easy because of the street design and poor signage. (This could be easily remedied, and the hotel could be part of the solution.) I got the impression that most guests relied on taxis and tours, but this shouldn't be necessary.
Amenities car parking Friendly staff Good choice of food Grand Very close to Valletta market place Central location.
Large amount of stairs if walking out of the hotel - not good. No early check available Not enough bottled water for tea making & drinking.
I could not connect to wi-fi after first day of stay
Everything about this hotel. The check in was friendly and welcoming, our room was large with a nice view of the harbor and the bathroom was large with nice amenities. The bed was comfy as were the robes and slippers. Staff was always friendly and helpful
we liked everything.
Position, the size of the room and the comfort if the bed. The access to the pools and the gym.
The infrastructure of the bathroom was a bit dated. Not at 5 stars level.
The view from the restaurants & bar across the bay.
Very poor to no WiFi connection in the room and none on the balcony #106.
the location is excellent, quite nice and large room, great view from the balcony, good breakfast, friendly staff
the hotel is getting old, these 5 stars must have been awarded loong time ago, the bar next to the swimming pool was closed - I know it was November, but still there were many people chilling there, they will charge you some EUR 350 deposit on arrival just in case you might steal a towel or sth...
location Good Breakfast
General outside appearance of the building could look a lot better
Views over harbour Size of bedroom Breakfast Service
Not being more central in Valletta
Why taxis to the airport cost €20, while from the airport to the hotel €15.
door left open all night making the lounge cold and uncomfortable to be able to enjoy the excellent ambience
Quality & variety of food was excellent. Leisure facilities good. Hotel transport prompt. Friendly staff.
Front door & reception can only be accessed by 85 stairs or steep hill & not suited to guests with mobility issues. General furnishings throughout were tired and carpets grubby. Poolside bars were closed at end of summer season & there were no facilities for refreshments unless you went into the building & up to the 6th floor to order them. Which was very poor for a 5* hotel.
View and location
how can it be in a five star hotel that rooms are being checked by the housekeeping before you can finally check out!? This is really ridiculous!! The transfer to the airport was late 20 min, even I ordered it the night before.
My balcony had a fantastic view, it was great sitting out there having a drink. The bed was huge. The staff were extremely professional and attentive.
Nothing really except, and this is the case for many hotels, I would prefer more light in the bathroom.
Room size and sea view. Bathroom facilities were of a high standard. Large dining room with good sea views for many diners. Dining and bar service was prompt. Hotel car to the airport service was very good. Response to query about transport from airport to the hotel was very prompt. Proximity to the old city of Valetta and the bus station for the round the island tours was very good.
Comprehensive Indian Buffet was the only meal availalbe one evening without a western choice which was disappointing. Furniture in the outdoor bar by the pool could be updated. Some of the building exterior could benfit form maintenance and cleaning
Location, facilities, comfort, staff were very helpful when asked. When one of our party became ill, they could not have been more helpful.
Apart from check-in, the staff only engaged us when we asked for assistance. If we hadn't spoken, I doubt they would have spoken to us. They may be under orders, but it felt like we were a commodity just passing through. Outside steps were long, steep, poorly lit and sharp edged.
Quiet location built on a steep slope under the city walls, 7 minutes walk to Valetta city gate and main bus station. Large comfortable room with partial sea view on floor 6 which is the same as floor as main entrance and reception. Very friendly and efficient staff in all areas. Room cleaning to a high standard. Very extensive breakfast buffet in a dedicated restaurant and also the Admirals Landing restaurant for lunch or dinner with a la carte menu or a highly recommended evening buffet with a very wide and varied choice. Lovely outdoor and indoor swimming pools.
Its a steady climb up several flights of steps from the main entrance to the road and then more uphill walking to the area of the city gate and main bus station.
Old style luxury Friendly staff Facilities
Stairs to main road
The food: both breakfasts and buffet dinners were extremely good. The staff: friendly and efficient. The 8th floor room: large and well furnished. Anyone not appreciating this place has real problems.
In spite of their having apparently changed the coffee, it is still not up to scratch. Could it be the water or the milk?
