Really great location and super friendly staff. Rooms very badly in need of refurbishment. Some consideration should be given to improving the quality of the food served at breakfast - use of the cheapest products available does not really impress. Some effort could be made to make the super roof terrace an attractive spot to spend some time - things like comfortable loungers, vending machine, outdoor lights, plants........

thanks for the review, we are in the process of some refurbishing ..We do not charge extra for the continental breakfast , should one want a cooked breakfast there is an extra cost...believe me the juice machine is found in most 4 star hotels to give you an example so its not a cheap product when you consider we are 2 star. I thank you for you suggestions to improve the serrvices with your ideas but then are you ready to pay a higher price as you chose the cheapest single rate to stay here ...


Great location but very basic.

thanks for the review ...yes its the best location and we try to keep the price low to cater for most budgets so of course one cannot have certtain expectations for the price considering the best location in the city..It s a simple basic place to stay


The hostel itself is in a good location and has a nice sea view restaurant. However, the room itself is awful. It was stinky (someone was obviously smoking a lot in that room), very small with an open shower room just next to the bed. The view from the window was a wall and other windows. So there was no fresh air that stinky smell. And finally, the toilet was outside the room. We paid the most for this hotel and it was completely not worth it.

I am sorry to hear that you did not like the room ..however if you had told reception about the smell I am sure they would have sorted it out for you...evern though we were quite full at that time. At least you managed to visi the restaurant and admire the view as the location is nice like you said


The British Hotel is in the centre of valetta both for shopping and the bus terminal. The staff are very approachable and friendly. the breakfast is excellent and there are plenty brochures to review for various trips in the island of Malta and the other two Islands.


The hotel has a great location and so nice and helpfully stuff!

Great value! !!


Small room, poorly ventilated and with sunlight streaming in from early morning. Nice communal/dining area for looking out to sea, though.

thanks for your comment , yes the room is a small bufget room hence the cheaper price however has the essentials and a shower en suite . I find it a contradicting since you remarked the sunlight coming in from early morning means there is a window which can be opened and therfore will be better ventilated. Thanks for you comments


The room was small and old looking. I excpected something better. The views from the restaurant are amazing. The staff at the reception very kind and helpfull

the single rooms are small budget rooms and for a few more euros one can get a larger twin for single use ..but the price for the single is cheap due to the room being small although you have the basics and an en suite shower /toilet. It depends on what one needs and wants to pay. Thanks forr you other comments
