Malta and Gozo, Europe
Sliema

Fashionable Sliema is one of Malta's finest resorts. It's got it all: big beaches, blue waters and some of the country's best shopping. Holidaymakers flock here for its fine diving (and dining on the Promenade). While some people keep coming back to Sliema because they like the people of Sliema so much. It's a warm, friendly place, where the locals are always ready to pass the time of day with you. And anyone who chooses the Plaza Hotel will feel right at home in the middle of this vibrant community.

The Plaza Hotel offers a prime location and facilities in the heart of Sliema:

Situated on the Sliema coast road, the Plaza Hotel is undoubtedly one of Sliema's finest. Close to the Promenade and boasting impressive views, it's a hub of activity, with snorkelers and shoppers and sightseers all converging here. Sliema's Promenade – lined with shops and restaurants – is close by, and you can look out over Ballutta Bay and the wonderful beach from the hotel. The local bus service gives easy access to the capital, Valletta, and plenty more places of interest.

As you'd expect, the twin and double bedrooms are all air-conditioned and feature satellite TV and radio, hairdryer and telephone. Side sea view, Sea view rooms are also available at a supplement, as are Superior rooms which come with their own balcony & sea view mini bar & tea & coffee facilities. Safes are available in all rooms at a supplement.

There is a choice of indoor and outdoor pool (available between May – November), as well as a children's pool. For those lazy days at the hotel, there are sun terraces for you to lie back and soak up the sun.

Guests have a wealth of places to eat and drink all within the Plaza Hotel; including a superb penthouse restaurant, pizza and pasta restaurant, lounge, bar, coffee shop, and snack bar.

Think of Malta and chances are everything you can think of is a stone's throw from the Plaza Hotel. The beaches with their large, smooth pebbles; the clear waters and rocky pool; the café culture and laidback nightlife; the cosmopolitan shopping: you'll find it all here.

Due to the surrounding area and the number of steps around the hotel, it may not be suitable for those with mobility difficulties.

TripAdvisor Review

Good value in central location.

Review by murf-707 Wolverhampton, United Kingdom

Arrived in the evening, having booked a superior seaview room, but when we went up all we could see was trees and the sound of the traffic was constant. I went down to reception, but the staff member on duty wasn't able to do anything about it and I'd have to see the day staff. Anyway, the traffic was constant until well after midnight, but we both managed to sleep eventually - the bed being super comfortable helped...

Next morning, the staff apologised and moved us to the 5th floor with a fantastic view and very quiet. Both rooms were spotlessly clean, had super comfortable beds and lovely showers. Breakfast was very good with lots of choice, with hot food fresh, with that and everything else replenished whenever needed. Indoor pool was small but lovely and warm. All areas of the hotel are spotless, and we could see that all the staff worked very hard and were always friendly whenever came into contact with them. There's plenty of buses that stop outside the hotel with regular services to different parts of the island.

First visit to Plaza Regency. Silema

Review by KAREN L Larne, United Kingdom

I stayed at the Plaza Regency and I thought Silema seemed very built up and wasn’t sure I’d pick the right hotel but I was so pleased I stayed here . My room was on the third floor and I had a brilliant view over Silema bay . The room was spacious , spotlessly clean and beds really comfy...

The reception staff were exceptionally helpful and friendly . The breakfast was lovely and the staff were excellent . The rooftop pool and sun loungers were great with a stunning view. I would definitely stay there again . A five minute walk around the corner to the beach ( but also a tiny hidden beach just opposite hotel ). The hotel is about 20 min walk to Spinola bay which is lovely at night . Or go right 20 mins to more restaurants and a great little coffee shop . It’s a great hotel to stay in as only 15 -20 mins in a taxi to Valletta .30 mins to Mdina.

Great hotel for location and lovely views.

Review by Denise M Cleethorpes, United Kingdom

The rooms were adequate very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good lots of choice and well organised. The pool bar was closed so couldnt get a cold drink...

No fridges in the rooms but it was advertised that you could purchase one and no tea and coffee facilites which you could also purchase. However when asked to purchase both we were told that they didnt have any and ask again tomorrow. In two weeks we asked every day and got nothing. One particular person on reception was particularly rude the whole time. People were checking in and getting a fridge and we didnt get one for the whole two weeks. Totally disgusting when its 30 degrees outside. Also told we could only have one key per room then found others were getting two.

Amazing location!! Good hotel. A few things need improving

Review by Venture67699351526 Fakenham, United Kingdom

The Regency Plaza could be an amazing hotel!! But there’s needs to be lots of changes. Although we did thoroughly enjoy our trip to Malta, several things let the hotel down that made the trip less enjoyable.

Firstly we were greeted very nicely by a gentleman on arrival...

We booked through booking.com which gave you the impression you had already paid when you hadn’t so had to pay apron arrival. We were given only 1 key card which is annoying when there’s only 2 of you. More to come on the key cards. When we arrived in the room I was pleasantly surprised. We arrived at about 9:00pm as our flight got in late. The room was clean and presented well. The best part of the room has to be the view! We were on the sixth floor. AMAZING!!!! The views were the best I have ever experienced in a hotel. So if you are debating weather to spend the £30 extra for the balcony and view… DO IT! It will make your trip and experience that bit more enjoyable. The bathroom was also clean and well maintained. Sashays of body wash are provided, very unpractical in my opinion and old fashioned as they are more hard work than they are worth.

That night the bed was extremely comfortable and we slept very well. Apart from the duvet (Blanket). If you are thinking you will be getting a duvet on your bed… you are wrong. Instead you get two blankets / throws. This may be ideal in the summer when it’s really hot but some night in October when it’s raining you want more than that. The blankets were very small so you needed two and we’re not long enough to cover us… and I’m only 5’8”.

The next day we went out for the day and we’re happily surprised to see that the housekeeper did an amazing job at tidying our room for us, changing the sheets, restocking the bathroom and taking away our rubbish. This I didn’t expect. I spoke to the housekeeper several times. She was extremely polite and made the room more enjoyable as it was cleaned every day. Thank you very much to the house keeper.

Now to the faults…

KEY CARDS!! If you expect to be able to get into your room when you want. You will be mistaken. Every time I left my room and came back to go back in, I had to go downstairs to reception and ask for a new key card because it wasn’t working. I couldn’t believe this!!!!! Never seen anything like it. It wasn’t just once. It was every time. Although reception were very apologetic and gave me a new card every time .

NOISE!! We stayed in a room near the entrance to the restaurant . If you want a lie in past 7:30 then I wouldn’t stay in here. I was woken up every morning by a stampede of people going to get breakfast. The rooms are not soundproof and you can hear everything that goes on outside your room.

SWIMMING POOL!!! The hotel advertised it has both an indoor and outdoor pool. When you book on bookings.com it gives you the impression both are open and working. Well… the pool on the roof could be amazing and lovely and the best I have seen in a hotel, if it wasn’t for the fact is was as cold as ice!!! We had a 5 minute swim and we couldn’t take anymore because it was that cold, even though the sun was shining, which you would have thought would warm us up. No !! I couldn’t believe it. You would think, oh is fine we can go to the indoor pool as yeh fair enough it’s the middle of October it might be cold outside. But yet again… no! The indoor pool opens in November. So any guests staying in October, if your expecting to swim, get ready to freeze cause that’s your only option.

Overall although there was a bit to complain about. The hotel is in an amazing location, central to everything you need. Staff were amazing and polite and couldn’t fault them at all and the things that were wrong were not the hotel staffs fault at all. It’s all down to the people above them who decide how things are run.

I would stay here again, but make a few changes. Hope this helps
