Two good hotels in Malta - in two different price ranges

Good hotels in Malta? When we visited Malta last week, we tried two different good hotels - one more luxurious and one more basic. Both were good depending on what you're looking for: an exclusive hotel with a spa and rooftop pool or a basic hotel at half the price.


Le Meridien in St Julians - luxury hotel in Malta

Le Meridien in St Julians is a large 5-star hotel with pools, SPA, welcome drink in the lobby and such modern high-tech lifts that it took us two turns before we really understood how they worked, haha.

  • Location and viewsExcellent location in St Julians (perhaps the busiest and most touristy resort in Malta). We had a great view of the sea from our room.
  • Rooms and bedsSpacious room and comfortable beds. Everything that should be in a better hotel room, but as usual a little short of electrical outlets and hangers.
  • Bathroom: Spacious and fresh bathroom with jacuzzi tub.
  • WiFi: Works quickly everywhere and is included in the price.
  • breakfast: Enormous breakfast buffet with just the right amount of all including made-to-order omelettes and freshly squeezed juices and smoothies.
  • Other services: Gym, SPA baths, SPA treatments and luxurious rooftop pool.

Chalet hotel in Sliema - simple but good hotel in Malta

Chalet Hotel in Sliema is a much simpler hotel, with a small simple reception and without any extra features. A really good location, friendly staff and well-functioning WiFi meant that we were still satisfied. We experienced this as a good hotel in Malta if you want a slightly more budget option.

  • Location and viewsExcellent location in Sliema (also a tourist resort, near St Julians). Also here we had great views of the sea from our room.
  • Rooms and beds: Ok room, but rather uncomfortable beds. No fridge.
  • Bathroom: Ok, but not luxurious in any way.
  • WiFi: Works quickly everywhere - free in a specific room and a small extra charge if you want it in your room.
  • breakfast: Small buffet breakfast with the essentials, including some fruit and sweets.
  • Other services: Roof terrace with great views, but uninspiringly decorated.

Hotels on the sister island of Gozo

If you are planning to visit Malta's sister island, the scenic and beautiful island of Gozo, we can recommend the spa hotel Ta' Cenc. Here you can experience beautiful nature, pools, spa and good food, and there are also several hiking trails.

We got some more tips on hotels in Gozo from the guide we had on the island. If you're looking for a 5-star hotel, there are Kempinski, located in the countryside with spas and pools. Otherwise, there are Calypso hotel or Maria Giovanna guesthouse in Marsalforn. There are also rural 'farm houses', which are cosy accommodation for families or groups of friends. Boran group should have many different farmhouses to choose from.

How do you prefer to stay when you are in a hotel? Do you prioritise a more luxurious hotel stay or are you a person who thinks "you shouldn't spend time in your room anyway"? Do you have experience with any other hotels in Malta?
