    Great

    Quirky but ideally placed for a city trip, good value for money, excellent food and service, clean and well-equipped accommodation.

    Nothing for us but remember this is like a taverna/pub with rooms rather than a full-blown hotel. For those with mobility problems the lack of a lift outside restaurant opening times may be a problem. Some of the rooms do not have an external view, we understand (but ours had a beautiful view of the Cathedral and close to the sound of the bells).

    Location

    I have been in many places, but never before have I been in such terrible hotel! The only good thing about it is the location – pretty close to the St John Co-Cathedral in Valletta. And the good news end here. The disadvantages: First of all, I was surprised to see that there was NO RECEPTION. The cash desk of the restaurant on the ground floor served also for that purpose and you need to wait your turn after all tables are satisfied. On my arrival before the check-in time, I was offered to leave my luggage in the storage room of that restaurant (next to the cheese)! On top of that they asked me to pay the room in advance, before I had even seen it! Reluctantly I did, much to my demise. The room had one ‘fake’ window looking at the hotel corridor (that means other guests can peep in as they come and go), and another very small opening in the bathroom toward a shaft shared with the kitchen of the restaurant. The latter gave us special access to all the gossip and the shouting from early morning. Truly, it was noted the room offers no view, but I did not know this means NO AIR as well. As I found out later, this is the case with most of the rooms. To compensate for that, air conditioning is charged on consumption – you are given a card just like in the public transport. Without air from outside it is obviously the only option. The elevator has a working time (!) – the working time of the restaurant. When closed, you need to take the stairs, which are quite steep. NO CLEANING was done for the three days of my stay. NO change of linen. Not to mention mine had quite a hole in it. And as a bonus (obviously from the kitchen), I had to kill the biggest cockroach I have ever seen – 10 cm (4 in)! From day 1 I was asking the staff to give me a receipt for what I paid and this seemed to irritate them quite a lot. I got one after insisting on check-out.

    Nice

    Central position,Owner was very obliging.

    Unfortunately our room was one of the rooms which had no window to see out of, made the room claustrophobic,but it was only somewhere to sleep and shower.Perhaps the price we paid determined the type of room we got I don`t know.

    The room I have been given which is number 43 on the fourth floor. I am planning to come again soon,but I would like to have a room with a view or any other room with a larger shower! My favourite one,so far is the number 11. Thanks

    Valletta Boutique is located in the very centre of Valletta. Downstairs there is a very nice cafe with delicious food and good prices. The staff of the hotel is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are nicely decorated and are very cozy.

    Our room was overlooking the square with Basilica, and the bells on the Basilica ring every 15 minutes 24 hours a day. For some of us it was difficult to sleep because the noise of the bell is rather loud. We were 3 people and there was not anough hot water for all 3 of us to take shower in the morning, the reservois of the water heater is quite small.

    The quirkiness of it all - the bedroom - the interior design - the restaurant.

    The damned bells - you can't stop them, but you could improve the soundproofing.

    The unique quaintness of this ancient building and the pre arrival support from Cinzia was super. Shame we didn't meet. Annabelle and Rita were very supportive and helpful always. Room 32 was beautiful and a very baroque / modern style . To find hotel it's above Lucianos restaurant and very well situated in centre of Valletta. Breakfast in the square was lovely and you can eat in or out . Loved the surprise spiral staircase to bathroom the mezzanine bedroom above was a surprise and actually cooler than the 4 Poster one as the air con blew directly here into this . Shower too Had 2 sinks and 2 showers very tastefully decorated. The menu looked good too! We were given complimentary cold water too! Air con is given via card one complimentary . If you want real Valletta this is the place to stay and I would recommend it.

    On arrival We were given 2 air con cards but one was taken from the room when it was cleaned and when we asked for it to be replaced it was refused by the afternnon staff who said we should only have been allowed one and we needed to buy the next one! ! It was 40 degrees and a heat wave. This was a minor issue. The St Johns cathedral bells chime on the 1/4 hour and so if you have sensitive hearing ear plugs mohht be an idea but we loved it. We would have liked to have eaten here chef had switched ovens off on first night but menu looked good.

    We stayed as a family group 5 adults and 1 child at Valletta Boutique, in early February 2012. Our son and his family had one of the larger rooms that looked out into the Cathedral Square, plenty of room, nice views, and of course the Cathedral bells, we were in one of the inner courtyard rooms, they are much smaller and a little dark during the day, but very cosy. The Valetta Boutique is more of a family guesthouse, rather than a Hotel, with very friendly and helpful staff, always a friendly greeting and quite often the offer of a coffee whenever we returned back from an outing. Breakfast served in the Restaurant was very good, full English Breakfast during the week and Continental at the weekends, and always freshly squeezed orange juice for everyone! Luciano's Restaurant is excellent, very good pizzas and traditional Maltese dishes. Luciano and his family are wonderful hosts and try there utmost to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free, we will certainly recommend the Valetta Boutique to all our friends, and hopefully will return ourselves for another holiday. Location is excellent, right in the heart of the city and close to the bus station.

    Great location and view of the cathedral from the window! Lovely decor and spacious room. Very tasty breakfast with freshly baked bread every day. Very nice food in the restaurant as well.

    It is good to remember that to check in you need to enter Luciano's restaurant and ask for accommodation, because there is no sign by the entrance.

    Its location at the price!

    The owners' main business is the cafe/restaurant. Very little consideration is given to residents. For instance, no provision for early departures. That is, if before 07:30.

    Perfect location, for your breakfast you can choose either English style or local ftira and it comes with freshly pressed orange juice! Absolutely unexpectedly we got a room with second floor and even second bed in it! Great!

    As this hotel is next door to the cathedral you can hear the bells ringing all night long...

    Everything! + Location. Valletta might be a teensy little place, but it still has a city centre, and this boutique is bang in the middle of it. + Location. Malta is such a small place, it's just 15 minutes to the airport. Which means there's no conceivable reason for you to miss your flight. + Looks. Wow. But hey, the entire country looks wow. Windows of unoccupied rooms are deliberately left open so you can take a peek and go weak in the knees. + Breakfast. Full English - wow #2.
