Score from 306 reviews Very good
We stayed on third floor which with heavy bags was an ordeal. Otherwise clean, spacious, very central and great view of harbour (as requested). Also, parking tricky in old part of town so check route before arriving, then grab close spot once there.
the location, pretty central in charmingly quaint old Valletta, a bit tricky to find, since check in must be done at Luciano Al Porto's restaurant, 2 streets up from the actual hotel's location. Check in is 2pm, but the lady in charge of Hotel cleaning is present in the building in the morning and let you leave your luggage there: early arrivers can then have a stroll around until 2pm. Breakfast included offers a choice between Full English and Continental breakfast, yummy!
Despite double glazing, the location remains pretty noisy, and despite the excellent quality of the mattress and bedding, you're in for a short night if you need real quiet to rest.
The atmosphere in the old house was unique compared to modern hotels. Breakfast outside with table service felt luxurious. All tourist spots and a lot of good restaurants within a few minutes' walk.
One night our electric key card stopped working. Someone from the restaurant had to come to let us into our room. I wonder how we had got into our room if this had happened after 10.30 p.m. when the restaurant is closed.
Big superb balcony! Beautiful house with its own energy in a beautiful city!
View from window mind blowing. Superb panoramic view of the Grand harbour and huge yachts. Enormous cruise liners would glide effortlessly by the window adding drama to the view. Wonderful 500 year old honeycolour limestone mini palazzo. Lots of ancient architectural features. Great location , 5 mins from centre and 20 mins or less from airport. Steep steps up to main centre could be a problem for less well abled. Cleaning girl very natural and friendly. Reception desk two blocks away.
Needs more furniture in room for storage, to lay case on. Bathroom tiles too dark, a 1970's shade of browny/beige, ugly. Need more rails to hang towels. Shower doors a bit rickety. Bitten by mosquitoes. Couldn't get more than 2 channels on the telly. No welcome manual/maps of city. No instructions for telly/ air conditioning.
- breakfast was good - location
- The room was described with 25m^2, it was maybe 10-12m^2 with the bathroom inside the room. we did not even have space to open our bags. when we confronted the hotelier, he said he can give us our money back and we can change hotel (very funny, it was still high season and almost everything was booked out) after a long discussion the owner, Luciano himself, came and gave us a discount. Still, too expensive and far too much stress. The hotelier was really unfriendly. - the door of the shower was broken - there was shaved hair in the sink when we arrived
Inside walled city of Valletta makes hotel close to restaurants , shopping & historic landmarks.
Can't get taxi or airport transfer service to Ursula St. hotel, due to narrowness of street and stairs. Also, hotel check in and owners are located 2 streets away on Merchant St. at Luciano's restaurant. People with roller luggage cannot get up/down all the stairs between the restaurant and the hotel. This info is critical to know in advance and is not made known during booking. This is confusing and not friendly for first time guests. If you have any physical disabilities or difficulty negotiating stairs, this hotel location is not for you.
Location and sea view from our room. Good breakfast at their restaurant up the hill.
Reception desk and hotel are NOT AT THE SAME LOCATION! They SHOULD mention it when you book a room. Luckily, our taxi driver told us where to go. Otherwise, it would have been a nightmare with our luggages.
Rooms with a harbour view. Breath taking...
Very nice location.
The room would be nice by Maltese way, but it is only keeping 2 star quality compared with european captials over all. Boutiq hotels must have a little better quality.
The position is superb.make sure to ask for the room that overlook the harbor. The place is very quiet at night and it is possible to sleep with the window open and a lovely breeze ( and you don'need the air con)
Not suitable for unfit /elderly/ wheelchairs. There is no elevator and the hotel is at the end of a long stairs that sometimes gets slippery
Well thought out room, everything you need, good view from room we had.
A bit impersonal, but functional for an overnight stay.
Excellent location and views. Breakfast very good.
Difficult to find. We were on the 3rd floor with no lift.very hard to take luggage up.you have to be very fit.breakfast was good but away from hotel about 200 steps to get there
In a great location with an excellent view of the harbor. Very nice stay with breakfast at a restaurant up the street included.
Parking would be nice!
We loved the views and its closeness to the restaurant and co-cathedral and the centre of town. The maid service was excellent. The full breakfasts were excellent and our one dinner at Luciano was very good.
We had booked a cab through the staff for 6:30 am departure. It didn't arrive becaused someone had neglected to call the cab company, who were very prompt when I called them directly. Perhaps a note in the room that the water is safe to drink although bottled water is better.
Beautiful view, great location, quiet yet convenient. Very reasonable price. Will be back. So good , should keep it a secret :-)
Ridiculously small shower cubicle, should just be a "wet-shower" with a curtain. Bar fridge not cold enough. Air-con sounded like it was shattering every 5 minutes.
Fantastic view of the Grand Harbour Excellent location Within walking distance of Valletta
The room was very nice and well-furnished. The AC made a weird noise every once and a while but it worked fine.
-Staff is horrible; they offer airport shuttle service but when I pre booked it the day prior to checkout apparently no one at the reception bothered to call the company to get us a car for the morning, making me and my wife late to the airport. All of the Maltese people my wife and I met during our trip were very nice; with the exception of the hotel staff and al-porto. the staff was pretty rude when I came to check in. -The reception and the hotel are about 200 meters apart from each other, and its in a pizza restaurant near the co-cathedral. It's not a huge deal just kind of annoying when you are checking in/out or have an issue. -The cleaning crew did a terrible job cleaning it before we checked in. For 107 euros a night I kind of expect the bathroom to be clean. - all in all its not worth the money they charge, there are a lot of hotels to choose from in Valletta; my advice is to go somewhere else.
Panorama, breakfast, wifi
Modern within old building and very clean.
Doesn't look good externally.
effective airconditioning and excellent view over harbour. Cleaning of room and provision of linen good.
key card was not available when we arrived. had to phone a number of times to get the key issue resolved. Had to walk to a cafe 2 streets away for breaksfast (this was inconvenient and also for older people it would have been very inpractical as the walk involved climbing 2 sets of very steep stone steps. Food was poor - choices poor - continental breakfast was stingy 2 slices of meat and slice of cheese with roll. No fruit provided at all. Cooked breakfast was adequate only. on the last but one day (a Sunday) we asked for a cooked breakfast - cook was not available so we were presented with a breakfast which was virtually inedible. not good value for money (I paid £588 for week). No ironing facilities even though stated in advert that iron would be availble in room. Also no water available when we arrived. I would definitely not recommend this accommodation!
(1) The location was excellent to explore the old city of Valletta (2) Cinzia, who took care of my booking and transport, was very helpful and attentive to our needs. The same goes for the cleaners of our room.
(1) My experience at the hotel ruined my holiday because I did not sleep for 2 nights (and I only stayed there for 2 nights). The reason is that this hotel is in a VERY NOISY ARE. Just underneath the hotel was a very noisy bar with people chatting loudly ourdoors until 1 in the morning at least. EVERY FRIDAY from May to October there s a Jazz festival taking place there with about 80-100 people sitting outdoors and a live Jazz band. Although the music finishes shotly after 12, the noisy people linger on until the early hours of the morning, and after they leave there is hellish noise from the bar staff who move the tables, and other heavy mettallic inftatsructure around to close the shop which means it is impossible to sleep. Plus on a daily basis there are 2 heavy tracks at the same spot noisily delivering drink ctaes manually to the local shops. All this means it is a nightmare and to be avoided if you are not a person who wants to go out during the day and sleep at night!!! (2) Apart from Cinzia and the cleaners of the room, all other staff, including the owner at the cafeteria (Luciano?) where breakfast is offered is detached, unhelpful and possibly overworked. A very complacent manner to run a tourist business. Supposedly this was a boutique hotel but it really wasn't! A pity because the building of this hotel and its place in old Valletta give it tremendous potential!! But you cannot run it like this. By the way there was no reception facility in the hotel!!! The cafeteria at 300 meters uphil a steep road was the headquarters of the hotel. LOL.
The hotel is well located and we had a room with a view of the harbour. The room was a good size, there was enough room for our clothes for a short break. There was air conditioning in the room and it was well decorated. Breakfast was up the hill at the owners restaurant. It was basic, but food all the same! The bathroom was small, but functional.
The air con blew directly onto us on the bed. This is ok for some, but for me it made me rather cold at night, but it was too hot with it off. When we went there was a fireworks festa and Fridays and Saturdays during the summer there is live music. Both these things were rather loud and woke us up even with the windows all shut. Fireworks were fired at all times of day and night, we were woken at 1am and then again at 7am with them! Also there is a bar under the property. This was actually quiet when we were there, but if you had a roudy crowd then I would imagine that it may not be quite so tolerable.
I loved the location, friendly staff and although I had to walk 67 steps every morning to enjoy my breakfast it was well worth it. Mr Luciano is a friendly man who makes his guests feel very special. I loved my Malta experience and would certainly return and stay at the same accommodation.
Mr. Luciano's son certainly needs some PR advise. My friend and I did not like the way he spoke to his staff. He always seems to be in a bad mood. He is in charge of the restaurant where our breakfast was served. Let this not influence your decision to go there because his father certainly makes up in what he lacks.
Located in the centre, large family room with comfortable beds (one double and 2 singles), perfect for a family of 4, fresh orange juice and good coffee for breakfast, able to accommodate early breakfast at request, clear information in the room.
no lift (but soon to be installed), no member of staff on site, bathroom very small, noisy aircon (not sure it was working properly).
