    Fab hotel, glad I trusted my own judment

    Fab hotel , glad I didn't take the reviews too much to heart I booked the Waterfront Hotel as I wanted to return to Malta after an absence of 39 years and to take advantage of low air fares. I picked the waterfront due to the location to get to Valletta, St Julian's , St Paul's, restaurant and bars. I read some of the poor reviews and was a bit apprehensive, but there was no need. Checked in late Wed night, nothing was too much trouble. Superior Room at front overlooking harbour, big enough balcony to have a coffee and catch some rays. Yes there is a road but if you are taking in the stunning scenery , you forget about the rd. The hotel room was very large and comfortable. Like to have the fridge , tea,coffee, etc, replenished every day. Extremely clean , cleaning staff very friendly and thorough. Excellent WiFi for work, etc. Breakfast - well I read some really bad reports but, we go in at 7.00, the hot selection of bacon, sausage, etc tastes excellent and how the cook makes his fried eggs so soft, I do not know. Good selection of breads, fruit, croissants. Restaurant clean, dishes gone as soon as you finish. Staff friendly and can't do enough for you. I am not easily pleased, but this hotel deserves it 4 star status. Leaving on Sunday, but it's been a pleasure and I will return. Thank you all at the Waterfront.PS - 1 fault - we were leaving at 4:00am and were told that there would be tea/coffee/croissants, etc in Reception - There wasn't.

    Fabulous room with views over the bay to Valletta. Handy for local buses which run very frequently. Staff very friendly and helpful. Rooms and public areas all very clean. Breakfast very good with plenty of choice. We felt this was an ideal location for our first visit to Malta.

    Good location at the quieter end of Sliema with a lovely outlook, however, if you book at Sea View room, you need to ensure it is from 4th floor upwards. We were on the 2nd floor (which is really only 1st floor as they do not have a ground level floor), and had the noise from the street constantly. It was also below the restaurant so lots of chair scraping noise from that. We had to wait for our room to be ready on arrival, finally at 3.15pm, but no apology or offer of drink while we waited. Rude and unwelcoming reception staff, had to ask our name 3 times and twice asked us to pay the City Tax. Occasionally a bad smell was coming out of the bathroom drains. The bed was huge and very comfortable and plenty of storage space in the room. Breakfast was edible but a bit monotonous and only have 2 tea/coffee making machines for all of the guests in the breakfast room, so be prepared to queue. I'd say the hotel was average and not 4 star by any means with the attention to detail and service provided.
