desperately in need of modernisation
Whilst the staff were lovely and did their best this hotel is tired out! It is basic and v clean but the decor is very dated and the communal facilities (roof terrace, bar, restaurant) are very dreary and need updating.
The rooms were fine, although the beds are very hard! If you want extra pillows or kettle etc they will oblige but you need to ask.
Unfortunately for the hotel they are right next door to a new massive hotel being built so it is quite noisy, the views are ruined if you get the building site, and as a result there is a lot of building rubble and rubbish in the street outside. It also doesn't get much sun where the pool is located.
The indoor pool they mention is very small (jacuzzi size) and I think was once just that but it is now not used as one. But the room it is in on the roof has a green/mouldy roof and there is literally nothing else there apart from 2 sun loungers on the roof terrace and an old broken excercise bike.
In general I felt sorry for the staff and manager as they are obviously trying to do their best with a very old hotel stuck in a run down part of Qawra. The whole area is in need of a coat or 2 of paint, rust remover, broken concrete repairs, rubbish removal and feral cat and dog catchers.
