For me, the main pluses for this hotel is its location. It is just 5-10 minutes walk to the main Valetta ferry and all the bus stops. From the fourth floor upwards the room views are fantastic. My room at the hotel front had a lovely balcony and 'postcard' views of Valetta harbour and the ancient sites of Valetta. The...

We booked the Victoria (sister hotel) . I had chosen carefully as we were visiting in February, so an indoor pool and fitness room were priority in case of bad weather. On arrival we were told that we had been upgraded to the Palace next door. This was fine as both hotels share the pools, spa and fitness suite. The...

This was the second time we have stayed at the Palace. As with the first visit everything was superb. Great staff, great room and excellent breakfast. A lovely relaxing place to stay and very well located in Sliema.

This was a perfectly nice hotel but the room had a slightly funky smell (6 floors up) and the breakfast was much closer to 3 than 5 star. Without wanting to be mean to the server, she struggled to understand that the three of us wanted proper espresso with our breakfast. First she pointed us to the Douwe Egbert machine...

It's a good location - a short walk to sliema seafront, valetta ferries and not too far from St Julians either. The higher your room the better it will be as you will have a balcony and great views. I was on the 1st floor with no balcony and the view of yhe street. Room is good. Comfortable bed and...

We had a junior suite, which being on the 8th floor, offered fantastic views across the bay to Valletta. Service was great, the staff could not do enough to ensure we enjoyed our stay. And amenities were everything you could ask for from a hotel of this calibre. There were some small niggles that stopped me from giving a 5-star...

I stay here once a month on business and couldn't be more pleased with a hotel. The rooms are great and spacious, the views from the balcony are great. In the summer the rooftop pool is amazing. Great spa, swimming pool and gym facilities also
