The Palace Hotel in Sliema is every inch the five star hotel – beautifully furnished and immaculately run; it boasts a perfect location with views looking out over the Grand Harbour. But more than that, it has its own unique sense of style and character.
With its picture postcard perfect outlooks, its chic, elegant interior and its wonderful facilities, the Palace Hotel really lives up to its name. And with its own spa facilities offering a range of indulgent body and health treatments, the emphasis is firmly on relaxation.
In fact, you can't help but relax at the Palace Hotel. Rooms are stylishly appointed, and benefit from plasma screen satellite TV, minibar and climate control. (Most rooms also feature a balcony or terrace.) And anyone who wants to take luxurious living to its ultimate expression can hire their very own butler for the duration of their stay.
While eating out is one of any holiday's great pleasures (especially in Sliema with its array of fine restaurants), eating in is just as big an attraction at the Palace Hotel. With three superb restaurants to choose from, each with its own unique style and menu, there is a wealth of fine, fresh cuisine to savour. The stunning views of the Grand Harbour from the TemptAsian Restaurant on the 9th floor add a little extra relish to any meal.
Additional facilities – of which a paid babysitting service, room service, mini gym and sauna are just some – all add to the sense of The Palace Hotel being one of Sliema's finest hotels.
There are no compromises at the Palace Hotel – everything, from the service to the rooms to the restaurants are as good as they can be. The fact that it occupies a prime spot in Malta's premiere holiday destination, Sliema, makes it impossible to resist its charms.

The hotel is beautiful. The roof top pool and bar just right for relaxing with a cocktail. The pool while very cold was exhilarating. Breakfast was excellent...
However, what made this hotel extra special was the staff. They were welcoming, polite, friendly, courteous and helpful. Some English hospitality could learn from them! The room was large and comfortable with a sea view. A perfect week.
We stayed at "The Palace" for 8 days in October. The hotel was very clean and well presented but the service is average and the parking is badly thought out.
However, when the parking in full, it is a nightmare finding a free spot because they have random spots that are reserved for other purposes scattered around. So you drive to a spot only to find that it was reserved. It would make much more sense to have a section of your parking lot reserved rather than random bays scattered around. Seems they care more for their staff having the best spots rather than their guests.
I can find nothing to complain about at this hotel. The staff,from the reception to the room maids are always friendly and no request is beyond them.Always smiling which raises your spirits no end.I am almost at the end of my 28 nights stay and leaving will be a wrench.Did consider extending the stay but the covid paperwork is already complete and I did not fancy doing it all again. I am room only but did eat in the Talk of the Town restaurant several times whuch was excellent,with top quality food and plenty in the portions.The superior room lived up to its description with a large balcony and room with a desk,shower and bath.Covid precautions were very good.The room was on floor 8 at the rear and although you can here the adjacent church bells,they are infrequent and soon ignored.Will be back again.
We stayed here in September. At first, there was a problem with our booking. The staff at reception could not have been more helpful and went out of their way to ensure we got a fantastic room...
The staff in the dining room are still training and it shows sometimes. One of the waiters, he was from Nepal, was so helpful and friendly. It has been difficult due to lockdown to train the staff and hopefully this will improve. The food in the restaurant is a reasonable standard. We are currently on holiday in Rhodes and there is no comparison with the reception staff here in the Itsis Grand. The Palace reception staff are so much better. They care about their visitors and it showed also with the other staff in the hotel.
This is a nice hotel. It’s not special, in my opinion. It is our last night tonight Our room was massive...
Very glamorous and beautiful furnishings. Air conditioning wasn’t very good and was noisy, so affected our sleep. Bathroom was nice, bath and shower, but considering this is a 5 star hotel, I didn’t expect the cheap plastic toilet seat to slide off when I sat on it. The toilet roll is very cheap, which I didn’t expect. Crunchy and hard. Very small bathroom towels. In addition I found some long black hairs and grime along side the shower screen, which certainly weren’t ours, as I am blond and my husband is bald, again really white revolting. One thing that is really very unpleasant is that there is a fitted mattress protector sheet on the bed, which would have been fine, but the centre panel is made of rubberised material, which you would put on a toddlers bed when he comes out of nappies! Made us hot and sounded horrible when you moved and felt unpleasant too.
Breakfast was good and plentiful, al served to you at the buffet. You walked round and chose it and the staff put it on your plate. I think this was put in place for social distancing, although we could queue up for drinks at the juice machines and coffee machines which defeated the object. Usually in a 5 star hotel, you are served tea and coffee at the table. The rooftop pool is gorgeous. Comfortable sun beds and lovely views. The pool is freezing however, 5 seconds in and out. Heated would have been nice. It sounds like I’m moaning a lot. It was a nice hotel, just not special and had some very weird aspects to it, and possible cutting corners, like the toilet roll!
Beware of the location , although close in principal to the waterfront, it is at the top of quite a steep hill in any direction, so be prepared to be feeling like you are walking the gauntlet every time you come back to the hotel. Having said that convenient for Valletta ferries.
Would I stay here again. No. We stayed in a four star in st Paul’s bay last week, which, apart from the size of the room and the luxurious bedroom here, at half the price per night it was all round better in our opinion. We chose this as a luxury hotel for the last part of our trip but we’re not impressed. We are people who stay in 2* self catering through to nice hotels too. I’m not a snob, just I expect a certain few things that really fell short here.
