The Xara Palace was a beautiful hotel, the staff were so helpful and the hotel exceeded our expectations. Mdina in our opinion was the best place to go for a quiet peaceful holiday. We visited for the Mdina Classic Car Grand Prix which was fantastic and after the day to return to such a peaceful hotel with luxurious decor was the icing on the cake. Felt quite sad when we left the hotel as we would have loved to stay longer. Mdina is a beautiful Silent City with some lovely restaurants and wine bars and even though it was a little busy during the day with 'tourists' it was still peaceful. A romantic place to go for couples if you like it quiet and peaceful.

Lovely building set in the middle of Naxxar. Wonderfully decorated rooms with large spacious bathroom. Access to the small pool, perfect for two people seeking a little break from the sun. Great roof terrace, to enjoy a drink and view of the stars at night. Wonderful hosts, couldn't be more helpful. Really helped with suggestions on where to go, how to get there etc. Great town, not many tourists, really get a good sense of the real Malta. Highly recommend to anyone who wants to enjoy the great little island.
The Palace is well located in Sliema, with easy access to Valetta by ferry and St. Julians either on foot or by bus. Personally, I enjoyed the neighborhood, which has a residential feel, despite all the tourists. The 9th-floor roof pool and deck has spectacular views. There's a church very close to the hotel, which rings its bells every fifteen minutes, but I quickly stopped noticing them. There's also a well-stocked supermarket a couple of blocks down the High Street, which came in handy. The Palace's staff were great, and responded quickly and positively to the requests I had.
When we arrived we were greeted with mulled wine and the news that we had been upgraded which was a wonderful start to our holiday. The hotel itself was decorated well, modern and clean but with nice individual touches in the rooms. The breakfast was good with cooked and continental options and the coffee was something to look forward to every morning. We had a lovely view from our balcony which added to the enjoyment of our stay. The hotel is located on the prettiest bay in the area which is charming during the day and surrounded by good restaurants and bars for going out in the evening. Most importantly the staff were helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, I would definitely stay here again.

"Wonderfully positioned for sightseeing in Valetta"
We went for 3 nights in November deliberately, so that we could sightsee at a cooler time of year. In the 3 days we saw most of the sights ( but the War Museum being closed was a disappointment) We also enjoyed the good standard of the restaurants.
A half day visit to Mdina, the old capital, is worth the effort and go on the public bus, only one and a half Euros for an all day ticket!
