Great Hotel - Hilton Malta
Stayed at the Hilton Malta Portomaso, St. Julians, PTM 01, Malta. Very convenient to walk St. Julians. Close to restaurants, shops, and a very nice grocery store!

St. Rita Street, Sliema: Holiday Apartments
The holiday apartment options in Malta seem to offer much better value for money than the hotels. We rented one for a week that was better than any hotel you could book for the same price. Just 50 euros a night for a 55m2 apartment that was as pleasant as an 80 euro hotel room with half the room.
We booked with a guy called Graham Busuttil, who's family run company is responsible for numerous apartments across Malta. They are considered experts in the field and I even saw his brother being interviewed on Malta's main channel. I had no idea what they were talking about though.
We were very pleased with the apartment. It's nicely decorated, well equipped, comfortable, clean and with a little balcony. There's also a roof terrace above, which you only share with one other apartment. We seemed to have the terrace to ourselves in December, which was nice. The only significant bad thing about the place was that it was cold in winter - it has wonderful high ceilings but these kinds of buildings are difficult to heat with (air-con) wall heater high up because hot air rises. But this is typical of Maltese apartments, I believe, and nothing terribly important.
The location is absolutely perfect, just a few hundred meters from the promenade, the buses, the water taxis and the harbour tours. Graham, was also very easy to deal with. We never met in person, everything was sorted out via email and with the driver who Graham arranged to drive us to and from the airport. It was all very simple and quick, allowing us to get on with our holiday without a worry.
(Sorry I only have pictures with Oskar in them)

Castille Hotel: Location, location, location
Central location in Valletta in old palazzo. Room interiors are old, but comfortable. Bathroom with shower. Clean, but well used. Good basic buffet breakfast.
Staff: very friendly, helpful and competent.
Optimum location to explore Valletta on foot. For bus trips around Malta it is only a few minutes walk to Floriana, the main bus station. Fantastic view over Great Harbour from roof-top restaurant.

Bed and breakfast gozo: Accommodation at Qala, Gozo, Malta
Julie, the "manager" of the bb is a wonderful woman!
the house is great, very cosy, very familiar. It's perfect to chill out, with its swimming pool, its quitness, and the hondok bay at 10 minutes walking distance.
They have a dog, called scoop, who liked to lick the pot planys! So funny!
There is a nice little square in front of the bb, with restaurants.
Incredible swimming pool and breakfast!

Relax Inn Hotel, Halel street, Bugibba, Malta: Beware of this sub -standard Hotel
Was booked "All-inclusive" for 7 nights in Relax Inn, July 2009. The Hotel was filthy and lacking all basic amenities normally enjoyed in an All-Inclusive Hotel.
I would recommend everyone to give this establishment a wide berth, it is probably cheap but a pig sty would probably be more comfortable.
The lunch menu was not even big enough to be a snack menu, with only sandwiches or toasties available.
We were lucky to find other accommodation nearby and did not have to stay the night
Swimming pool is little more than a paddling pool with severely broken steps to get into it. A real danger area.

Hotel Juliani: Great Boutique Hotel St Julians Bay
Great Location is St Julians Bay. The hotel is situated at the end of the bay overlooking the whole bay. The rooms are large and bright with chic design and an open feel. I was made to feel very welcome and was looked after during my stay from beginning to end.
The hotel has a pool on the roof top which has great views of the Spinola Bay area. The only problem was the lounger area is not too well positioned to get the sun in the late afternoon however my visit was in October so may be better in summer when sun is higher!

Le Méridien St. Julians: Le Méridien St. Julians Hotel & Spa
I stayed there with my mother for one week. The hotel and its rooms are very nice and clean and the staff is very friendly. The large spa is the perfect place to be when it is raining.

Milano due Hotel: Affordable with good location
It was off high season, so prices were reasonable. We rented a double room (bookied via their website) with side sea view for 32€ per room per night . The room located on the 3rd floor was really spacious with ensuite bathroom. Only complaint was that the beds were veeeeeery soft if you're not used to such kind of matresses.
Breakfast included in the price was nice and served at the 7th floor having nice views over Valetta and the bay (though Sliema itself is not so picteresque).
The hotel is located in Sliema's Strand with easy access to Valetta by bus (0.5€). The area had great views but if you ask me I would have chosen to stay in Paceville (St.Julian's area) which has more dining options and is more lively at night.

Le Meridian St Julians: Balutta Bay view
Large 5 star hotel apparently.
Impressive lobby etc and room was fairly nice too, however...
The tiny roof top pool was overun by rowdy teenages.
The beach outside the hotel is tiny (and yes it really is small) but this was still far more pleasant than the hotel pool which overlooks the beach by 12 floors+
As for the service.. we had to wait an hour for the room when we arrived at 3:30pm, the minibar didnt open, room service never got our orders correct, the pay per view channels were more hassle than they were worth and the receptionists wernt exactly helpfull, though a word with the duty manager did resolve most issues.
In summary pleasant but dont be fooled by the 5 star rating.
Good views if you look out over Balutta Bay.
Nice size room.

Aparthotel San Anton: Avoid San Anton!
We wanted a cheap 1 week break in Malta. Thus our expectations of our accomodation were not too high. Aparthotel San Anton managed to even go below this.
In no particular order:
> Reception Staff: rude, unhelpful, uncommunicative;
> Room: dirty, worn out:
> Cleaning Service: Didn't changes sheets, towels, clean room;
> Food: Adequate, but only just, very limited choice of food;
> Pool: over-chlorinated with cloudy water (cannot see your own feet when standing in water):
> Hotel Management: actually saw a duty manager hide from other irate customers;
> Bar staff - slow service.
All this added up to a break that was anything but relaxing. I would no receommend this hotel to my worse enemy.
Unique Qualities? Well it is not the charm of the place. The only thing that I can say in it's favour is that the cleaners kept the brass hand-rail outside the hotel clean and polished!
Every plant pot had a wealth of dog-ends and other rubbish in them. Canopies by the pool were all torn and/or broken.

Malta great hotel
Stayed for a week at the Maritim Antonine Hotel and Spa Malta in July 2007, would certainly recommend this hotel to anyone. We had a room overlooking the ground floor pool, the rooms were cleaned on a daily basis and we had fresh towels every day. Bedrooms, large with sat. tv. mini bar, tea/coffee making facilities, settee, chairs, coffee tables etc. The breakfast in the hotel was really good with lots of choice. Staff, polite, friendly and very helpful. Would highly recommend the 'Arches' restaurant, across the road from the hotel, as they say ' I have eaten in London, New York, Paris and Rome' among many other places but their food was as good as any I have had on my travels, must dress, smart/casual, no shorts etc. if you only dine out once make this place a must. Was not too impressed with the pizza place attached to the hotel but others seemed to enjoy the food. Wouls stay at this hotel again, if visiting Malta.

Ambassador Hotel, Xemxija: The Ambassador Hotel
It's a budget hotel, and you get what you pay for. It's fairly basic, the rooms are fairly small and some of the amenities either don't work or aren't available. It also looks like a blue and yellow sandcastle and is slightly out of the way on its own.
However, the view is fantastic (see photo) - try and get a sea view room if you can. The air con works a little too well - freezing in the morning! The staff are very nice and the owners' son is very cheeky but quite sweet. We went at the end of August 06 for a week, and it wasn't crowded at all. The most we saw of other people was when we left! The pool is small, but there rarely seemed to be anyone around it. The downside for me was that it was saltwater, which isn't my cup of tea. We had B&B board, and the breakfast was quite basic, but had everything that we wanted (cereal/toast/juice/coffee/bread&butter etc). The breakfast room was nice and big and breakfast was available for a few hours, so again it was never crowded. Full and half board is available as well.
It's a short walk down to the bus stop (5 mins max) which is nice in the summer sun, by the harbour. The buses are fairly frequent, but the best thing to do is to go into Valletta or Bugibba if you can, and then out again, as they are far more extensive and will get you where you want to go.
It's close to: Golden Bay, the Popeye Village, Bugibba, St Paul's Bay, Mellieha, the ferry port to Gozo. It's also very easy to get to Valletta, and consequently anywhere else on the island.

Pergola Club Hotel & Spa: Best value for money in Malta!
We have stayed at the Pergola Hotel in the first week of April and I must comment that the stay exceeded by far what we expected. We booked because the Hotel had good prices on Expedia and we thought we'd give it a shot. It turned out to be beautiful...the weather helped the stay too!
The Hotel is located on a hill and the view is truly amazing. I am an artist and have painted the panorama from my balcony. The rooms were very spacious and newly refurbished. Do NOT expect 5 star standard because it is a 4-Star Hotel!!!!! Cleanliness is superb, the housekeeper (a very friendly lady) has been working there for a long time (20 years) That is surprising becuase the place does not look 20 years old. We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment and the bedroom was a bit small and no window but the lounge area made up for it. The apartment even had a big kitchen with a HUGE fridge (even bigger than the one we got at home!) and very well equipped. The front door looked a bit shabby but who cares about the door as long as it's sturdy!
We tried the food for a couple of time but most of the times we were eating out. There are plenty of good restaurants around. TIP : Ask the receptionists to recommend restaurants becuase most of the staff is from the village and know the area very well.
We had a maintenance issue with the balcony door but it was sorted immediately. The staff amongst whom, Charmaine are truly friendly and efficient.
I can't say it was a perfect holiday but a truly enjoyable one... and Malta is lovely if you make the most of it!
PS. They also had a spa which we didn't try but was mentioned positevely by other guests
