    Very good

    Really good location and staff were nice. Breakfast was nice but quite expensive.

    The pools become very crowded later in the day to the point that there is nowhere to sit. Also, housekeeping knock very early so if you don't want to be woken up before 8am put out your "do not disturb" sign!

    Very good

    Didn't work key or doorlock. Every time I came to the room I experienced difficulties. I had to come back to the reception and ask to change a card.

    Perfect

    Super comfortable beds, great location, free parking, amazing facilities i.e. the roof top pool, indoor pool area, restaurants.

    I thought the breakfast was over priced.

    Guest rating

    Employees are really nice and trying their best to help. The location is perfect - not too busy area but easy to reach Sliema ferries to Valetta, bus terminal, and all nice cruises ships. Very good restaurant (Temptasia) and a wonderfull spa with interesting discounts.

    It was a good value for money because we had a special deal : 67 € per night in April for a deluxe without breakfast - but do not expect a 5 stars .... We had to ask several times for basic services (pillow, safe without battery...), a lot of things were not at a 5 stars level (holes in sheets, sheets missing after the cleaning did the bed, lights not working, inside pool not heated and very chilly, etc...)

  • 7.8
    Very good

    Stayed in the junior suite with a lovely terrace that overlooked the town and Valetta.

    Great

    1. The wonderful view that the hotel has. From my room 748(junior suite) you can see all valletta. Beautiful churches, th old city, the sound of the bells. 2. the design of the hotel and especially the rooms is very modern and impressive. 3. the location of the hotel is very good because its near to the tourist bus stations, to the tourist boats and many good shops or accessorizes.

    1. Low speed of service. 2. poor breakfast meals. 3. poor room service menu for foods. 4. not enough room CLEANING(with that I mean the floors of the rooms).THE Bathroom was perfect.

    Perfect

    The hotel is very comfortable with several dining options. The dining areas are very smart and comfortable. What is particularly noticeable is the training staff have received. Little things are attended to vey carefully - for exampe, when a table is being cleared or set, you do not hear a rattle of delph or cutlery. Everything is done quietly. All staff most courteous.This is our second time in the hotel. The half board option was quite good. Last time we sought out - and walked long distances to - the best restaurants we could find. None would have been worth that walk/trouble when within the hotel we had option of buffet evening meal or TemptAsian restaurant, beautifully positioned on roof with great views. All in all, a great hotel.

    The Staff are helpful and the best view of Sliema from the outdoor swimming pool.

  • 9.6
    Perfect

    Really enjoyed our stay at The Palace. Lovely pool area on the roof, staff were very professional and room was very spacious and clean. Location is excellent for shopping (Tigne Point Shopping Complex and Sliema shopping area only 10 minutes walk away), rocky beaches (sea is 5 minutes walk away), and easy access to public transport into Valletta, St. Julians, etc. We also found free parking very useful as finding a space in Sliema can be hectic to say the least! Would definitely stay at the The Palace again.

    In our opinion, the only disappointing aspects of this hotel were: (1) the price of WiFi internet access (something like 5 euros an hour!). There are however two computers available in the lobby which guests can use for free. (2) the breakfast. Overall it was good, but when compared to other 5 stars we've stayed in, we didn't think it was very good value for money (no pancakes, no omelettes, juices were very weak, cheese and meats table was lacking in variety, etc). We paid 18.50 Euro each for one breakfast, but they did offer us a rate of 12.50 Euro each per day if we booked for 3/4 days (which we didn't need).

    The room was excellent, and the hotel had a friendly welcoming atmosphere all the time. All the staff were polite and extremely helpful. Prior to arriving I contacted the reservations department and they ensured the additional items I had requested were available in the room on arrival.

    The outside pool was closed for maintenance.
