Great views looking over the harbour, cold beer on the balcony of the restaurant and friendly staff. 30 second walk from the heart of Valetta, so easy to get to places, but wasn't noisy (well, apart from the passing cruise ship at 8am!) Recommended in Lonely planet, by a friend of mine and now by me!

This hotel is a basic bed and breakfast and we liked it very much. It was clean and had everything that we required. We liked the friendlyness of all the staff and nothing was too much trouble for them. The view from the balcony was unbelievable and we had the same glorious view from the restaurant. The beds were comfortable...

A basic hotel with fantastic views across Grand Harbour to the Three Cities. Wake up and see a massive cruise ship passing just yards from your window. The staff are friendly. The rooms are basic, clean and comfortable. The restaurant is excellent with Maltese cooking. Rabbit dishes/ Octopus stew and also excellent stakes. Make sure you get a terrace table.

We booked at the British Hotel in order to be in Valetta. It is situated just 5 minutes from the St John Co-Cathedral and from all central attractions. In case someone has a room with a view, then that is really worth. As the building is old, the rooms are neither modern nor very comfortable. The breakfast is rather elementary,...

Just because it has a great view or some Hollywood blockbuster was filmed in front of doesn't justify the price one pays for these hostel style rooms. We had two single rooms in the annex facing the lightwell, drafty windows and no heating at cold 9C in the night. Bathrooms were so small we couldn't sit straight on the toilet...

I would like to point out that we had a major movie ,documenteries and TV filming which were made here due to the location of the hotel which is surrounded by history ,character and breathtaking views making it unique from other palces. Our prices however are calculated because the position is unbeatable , overlooking the wonderful Grand harbour and also...

We spent one night at the British Hotel, on our way back from a wonderful week in Malta and Gozo. What a finish! This hotel is in a beautiful setting overlooking the Grand Harbour, which is wasted on this grotty hotel, which is old-fashioned and even for Valetta, poor value for money (€70 for B&B). The accomodation was more suitable...

This is an excellent choice for the budget traveller. Great location in Valletta and some of the rooms such as 115 have great views across the grand harbor. Staff was very friendly and the room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was OK.

We had two rooms with views over the harbour, one with a covered balcony the other open. Both rooms were large (one had four beds, the other a sitting area) and adequately furnished though not particularly luxurious. The breakfast was OK, though fairly limited, but the view you have while eating it is truly magnificent...it is very easy to think...

As far as a 2* Hotel is concerned this is your best bet in Valletta for a comfortable, convenient and reasonably priced hotel. The decor is quirky and retro - as nothing has been updated. The rooms are basic (not just lacklustre) but simple. However, they are clean with comfortable beds, hot showers, cable T.V, fast WiFi. Worth paying an...
