We had covid while staying here and were in isolation. The hotel was terrific in looking after us. We had 4 days before covid and then 8 in our room. Good location. Shower was excellent. 312 was one of the larger rooms so was great. Towels were changed daily but some were a bit worn. 20-30 min walk to Sliema ferry. Excellent hotel for the price and would definitely recommend staying here.

I can't express enough our deep appreciation for the sensitive and caring service we received when my wife caught COVID and we had to extend our stay by three days during our required isolation in our hotel room. Regular phone check-ins, reminders to order breakfast, booking tests, and noncontact replacements of towels, coffee tea and anything else we needed. I we highly recommend this hotel.
