Really wonderful experience! The team really looked after us during our honeymoon. We had a corner suite with a harbour view and the room was exceptional. The pool area is small but we never had a problem with finding a bed. Only point of issue- we had booked the restaurant for dinner one night and when we attended, there was no record of our reservation. We ended up managing to get a table but our food was ordered quite late

Simply amazing!
Cugo Gran Macina exceeded our expectations! The Grand Harbour Suite was spectacular, the location is beautiful, free parking opposite the hotel, spotless and great attention to detail. Additionally, Marc the receptionist was outstanding and extremely helpful. Thanks to him and to his personalised service our stay was truly magical.

One of the best hotels I’ve ever stayed at, historically rich and finely restored, congratulations to the owner and all involved in this beautiful revival of history. The pool is located on the lower level roof facing the marina inlet, very nicely done with great views. From the rooftop you get the best view of Valletta and Castel Saint Angelo. Friendly staff, especially the bar/restaurant. Can’t wait to go again!

2/5 Poor

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Very disappointing
I booked the best room in the hotel, The Presidential Suite. The main room does not have much natural light and as soon as we walked in we could smell mould and a general musky and stale smell. We found black mould on the walls and around the window frames in the bedrooms which is where the strongest smells came from. The room is clearly suffering from damp and a lack of fresh air flow which is causing the mold and fungus to grow inside. We were left feeling very disappointed with the overall experience and we had to call reception numerous times to get anything done. The reservation was originally for 2 people (me + my son) but at the last minute the other son joined us. The hotel charged an additional EURO380 just for my other son to sleep on the sofa bed! This hotel does not represent good value for money.
