Kennedy Nova Hotel

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
Sliema

If you're looking for a resort that gives you a little bit of everything you might possibly want from Malta, then Sliema is an excellent choice. Sliema is also well served with exceptional hotels, and the Kennedy Nova Hotel, like Sliema, gives you everything you might want from a top hotel in an excellent location.

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.

This is not a four star hotel

This is a reasonable hotel but it is not a four-star rating as indicated on the brass sign outside and online. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Nice size room with an air conditioner that works although a bit noisy and needed a service...

Having stayed in early June it was unbearably hot. A regularly serviced working air conditioner is a must. The room and communal areas were kept very clean. Unfortunately no net curtains, we had to keep the blackout curtains permanently closed otherwise we would have been overlooked by the buildings across the street. Tea and coffee facilities in the room are not offered. A proper size bath sheet towel would be great. The bathroom was of very poor standard. Cistern handle was fitted upside down but repaired after we arrived, toilet seat lose, bath tap was loose off the wall. The bath spirit level was in the opposite direction therefore when showering the water ran all over the floor. The furniture was tatty but usable. Definitely needs updating. The dining area was kept very clean. The breakfast choice was very good, especially for those with big appetites. We are not big eaters however, we were pleased with the choice and service.

Internal balcony room

Review by Brian7392 Milngavie, United Kingdom

So when I booked a balcony room I wasn't figuring on a Juliet balcony looking across to other rooms. The room was clean, bed okay and shower was fine. Breakfast was fine and plenty of items to choose from including hot and cold food...

Glad I only booked for a night before flight home though.

My opinion

Review by Sunshine33297871351 Windermere, United Kingdom

My colleague and I are staying at the hotel on business.

We are manning a deep sea divers rescue unit for a saturation diving vessel working in Tunisia and we are based in the harbour with our rescue equipment.

The hotel is lovely but with rhe following reservations...

Every room has air Con. unfortunately the outside compressor units are set to a minimum gas pressure making them almost useless but still operational. And of course they are very efficient. This makes the rooms very uncomfortable.

All rooms open into an internal shaft. Either on the left or the right of the hotel. There is no natural ventilation. You will need mozzie spray.

The breakfast is adequate for the room rate. But no where near the four star advertised

The staff are very friendly but at first sight some of them they may seem a bit like zombies but then it is Hallowe’en at the moment so they are probably just getting into character.

For some reason the rooftop pool is locked up. It would be nice to relax by the pool during the day and spend some time there on beds and admire the magnificent view. Maybe read a book and have a drink or poolside snack but…… its locked up.

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

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.
