Prime seaside location and premium quality facilities at the Kennedy Nova Hotel

You'll know as soon as you arrive that you made the right choice. The Kennedy Nova Hotel is well situated for one thing, right on the waterfront promenade. And it's a wonderfully stylish place to stay; the reception area sets the tone with its attractive furnishings and décor, and that sense of style is continued in the guest rooms.

All twin and double rooms have en suite facilities and are smartly (but very comfortably) decorated. It's just the sort of room you want to see when you arrive tired after travelling. Sea view rooms are available for a supplement, but you'll find the same great range of facilities in all rooms, including TV, direct dial phone, minibar and hairdryer. Safe deposit boxes are also available for a small charge, on request.

During your stay, be sure to make use of the seasonal rooftop swimming pool as it's an excellent suntrap and provides a wide vantage point out over Sliema and the Marsamxett Harbour.

With so much of Malta to see – and so much of it accessible from Sliema, you'll be heading out and about to the capital Valetta, perhaps even some of St Julian's nightspots, and don't forget to explore Sliema itself. Take a walk along the promenade and try one of its many outstanding eating places. And do make sure you check out your very own Kennedy Nova Hotel restaurant too – it's well worth a look.

With a great location, great facilities and a whole host of great reasons to choose it, the Kennedy Nova Hotel is a perfect choice. Make it your holiday home when you visit Malta.

Great evening meal!

Review by otterspair4life Sheffield, United Kingdom

This review is simply for our dining experience at Hotel Kennedy Nova. We weren’t hotel guests but nevertheless we had a really good experience eating here.

We initially decided call in to the outside area, by the main road, as the hotel had placed a screen outside to show the World Cup football.

We weren’t sure what to expect but needn’t have worried. Both the table service & the food proved to be very good and we had a really nice evening...

For our main courses I had an excellent swordfish steak & my wife chose a very nice carbonara dish.

The table service was excellent & although very busy our waiter was really cheerful & very efficient. I wish I’d got his name, to mention here, as he added a lot to our experience & displayed great customer service.

Our thanks to the team at the hotel for a great ‘walk in’ experience. We’d would definitely eat here again.

Very happy with our stay

Review by Scenic48569792837 Chester, United Kingdom

Nice decent hotel. Lovely view of the bay and Valletta. Staff all very friendly...

But of a dated building but good for the price. We stayed in the room the previous person on here complained about the aircon and cracks on the tiles…had no issue with it. Malta is very humid so that’s expected and the aircon was working for us. Would definitely come back just for the view alone. Only thing is asked for two extra pillows and only got one, and extra towels and only got one.

2 star not 4 star hotel

Review by 881gatisp

The only thing we realy enjoyed was pool bar on 7th floor. Selection of drinks was nice and bar stuff were friendly and nice. Also view from bar was excellent!

Biggest problem - Air conditioning from the 90's wasn't working and in such a high tempretures we had ( +35 day +30 night) it was impossible to enjoy the nice harbour view...

We noticed reception that air conditioning is not working. they send one guy to check the remote of AC but no further steps to fix situation. manager at the reception promissed ful refund for first night as AC wasn't working but of course there was no refund. And we noticed that several other guests complained about AC problems and they got the same promises. So I would call this as a scam. Our neighbours also told that fridge wasn't working on their room + the AC of course. Our fridge was working but it was damaged

Balcony floor was dusty and never cleaned while we stayed there. one of two seats was broken on balcony. And door knob was missing from balcony side.
Plumbing quality was very poor. After every shower we needed to take towels to cleen water from floor in bath room :(

There was damages on floor tiles and also on ceiling. There was not enough toiletries and they were not replaced enough, so basicly all we had was hand soap for all our needs.

Hair fan was so bad that it was impossible to dry hair.

No ironing equipment as it was prommised in booking page. Wi-Fi connection was so poor that we used free wi-fi from hotel next doors.

breakfast food selection was quite poor - for most of the days - scrambled eggs and beans. Only on one of mornings there was kitchen personel guy who made omlets on demand with different flavours. that was only good breakfast experience.

So if anybody considers this place while air conditioning is a must PLEASE AVOID THIS PLACE!!! Overall I feel scamed and still would like to get some kind a refund.

Great value hotel

Review by 997AndyR997 Helsinki, Finland

Great hotel, rooftop swimming pool and bar. The rooms are standard double room with shower and air conditioning. We had a room with a great view of the harbour...

Food and drinks are reasonably priced and were generally good value. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Breakfast was also included in the room rate.
