Feels like home

Review by I7735ZPmatthewc Island of Malta, Malta

I've stayed at the il palazzin hotel before and couldn't wait for it to reopen after some refurbishments. I live here in malta and do like to stay in hotels as a treat with my wife now and again just to feel in holiday mode! The il palazzin hotel staff and general aura you get from When you arrive and during your stay is warm and welcoming. It is one of the only hotels in the area that supply comfortable beds, clean rooms,freshly cooked breakfast ( which is very very good) and evening meals too, catering to there very best to everyone's needs!! I work in the area and sometimes cannot stop for breakfast, however they gladly let me takeaway my breakfast in a box...

Also sometimes if the weather closes in, they have a very good selection of tv channels for all nationalities and movies to, ( not just a news channel like some ) all In all don't take my word for it try it out yourselves, for a CLEAN RELAXING break book with the il palazzin hotel!!!!!!👍👍👍👍ps try and get room 416 !!! That's if I'm not there 👍

Disappointed overall

Review by GillP9

The room was clean and tidy and bed was very comfortable but I was overlooking a building site. Photographs of the hotel made it look more inviting. It was a short walk to the sea front but the area around the hotel was dirty and untidy...

The weather possibly didn’t help and I accept that was beyond anyone’s control. I was disappointed with the indoor pool - it was on the top floor without a proper roof so, if it was raining (which it often was), swimmers felt the rain too. I gave it a miss! I didn’t find the staff particularly friendly especially in the restaurant. Food was ok but there was no atmosphere there. Dinner was from 18.30 until 20.30 but just after 8 pm they started taking food away and unplugging equipment. I stayed 3 nights which was long enough. Next time I will probably look for a different resort anyway.

Review by hekata

Hotel manager Simon is excellent, communication via email was very fast and clear. I booked room for 2 persons, very good price, but in end got better room that was book, we come to hotel early but they allow we can come in room 3 hours before is regular. Staff made maximum we feel very welcome guests...

We had half board / breakfast and dinner. Can’t nothing wrong say, all was excellent, and dinner also, we sS 3 days, but all time was different choices for dinner, very good soups and many varieties of salad. Room was very clean and daily cleaning also. In room had electric kettle, some tea and instant coffee, one bottle of water and wine. Fridge was very useful, Internet was excellent also. First day was, after some hours work, damaged light in bathroom. They in same moment solve it, Was some big construction work, but, even it was under our window, it not destroy our time in Il Palazzin. Saw in top of hotel, 6.floor inside swimming pool, water was perfect heated. I will return there again.

Excellent value sight-seeing base

Review by Jill W London

Your view of this hotel probably depends on what you want from your holiday. As a base for sight-seeing you can't fault it - short walk to a major bus terminus. Our room on the 3rd floor had a lovely sea view and, yes, the building site below which started early but the double-glazing is very efficient...

The room was very spacious and clean. Shower was good. Wi-fi was excellent. My only criticisms are the pillows and the weirdest/most useless hairdryer I have ever seen! The buffet breakfast was plentiful, both cooked and continental, and replenished frequently. Having booked B&B, the bonus for us was a buffet-style 3-course evening meal for 10 euros each. It is definitely not cordon bleu but if you don't want to trail around seeking a restaurant or you're on a budget, it's great value. The hotel can book excursions. We only took the harbour tour, part of the airport shuttle package, which was excellent. This hotel is quiet (no lively night-time entertainment) but has everything you need. Think Premier Inn level. It attracts many different nationalities, groups, families and couples, and I would definitely stay there again.
