4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

Good place for a day or two to get a different impression form resort hotels on coast. Issue is that it is not a 5 star hotel, but a solid 3.5/4

I did not get to stay there as Expedia messed up my reservation. The hotel was fully booked for a wedding that weekend. However, the Xara Palace staff were very nice to me and helped me find an alternative hotel. Thank you SO MUCH Xara Palace for helping me and for welcoming me at your beautiful boutique hotel.

Great hotel in a unique location

Beautiful hotel in a unique location. A different side to Malta than the seaside resorts and worth a stay. The old city of Mdina ia worth a visit and great to see it at night when a bit quieter and all lit up. The hotel is great. The breakfast room has amazing views and the food was great.

Felt like Maltese Royalty

We visited Mdina 2 years ago and decided that on our next trip we would definitely stay at the Xara Palace and it lived up to all our expectations. We have never slept in a more comfortable bed and the decor was simply stunning. John at the front desk was brilliant and his knowledge of Malta just fascinating. We will definitely be back.
