Location is great; but the description Luxury suits is really misleading and unnessecery. My room was on 3rd floor and had no window and natural light which is depressing. The restaurant downstairs also had no windows; so it gives you feeling of cheap hostel not luxury suits.

This property is right on Valletta’s main drag. Plenty of shops and restaurants in a very short walk. The street is pedestrian only so you’ll have to carry your bags about 100 metres to the hotel. There is no gym or pool like many large hotels but it is very charming. The breakfast was satisfying - love the coffee!!! Apparently recycling isn’t a thing here (no recycling bins) and the shower head was probably big enough for an elephant. These would rate low on the eco-friendly scale. Otherwise, the hotel is great and staff are super nice. I visited on business but this now figures into my family vacation planning.
