          Great location, super breakfast & evening meal. Cheerful friendly staff, hotel very easy going would stay again and modern.

          Internet connexion and air conditioning poor

          4 nights Spending 3 weeks enjoying Italy and Sicily my wife and I decided to relax in Malta for a few days before flying home – pity, based on this hotel, that we made that decision. I would like at the outset to say that I do not usually give bad reports preferring instead to make a neutral comment leaving it to the individual to decide after they have read my comments. From the moment we entered the hotel – albeit on the surface it appeared good – we realised we had made the wrong decision. During the course of our stay various things showed that this hotel appears to be quite seedy. The receptionist was, to say the least, unhelpful and unsmiling – I have had a better reception from Soviet era border guards. Immediately he demanded that we pay for the 4 nights in advance (in all our worldwide travels, other than motels, has payment been demanded before one could even see the room – note payment and not a C.C to hold as security). Note also when you pay on arrival you will only be given your C.C receipt – make sure that you receive a headed statement at the same time, this will save you problems if you are in a hurry when you leave. Other receptionists with whom we came into contact with were no better – on one occasion I stood looking, face to face, at a female receptionist for approximately 1 minute before it was left for me to break the silence and ask if she spoke English. It should be said that other members of staff with whom we came into contact with were quite friendly and at least smiled! The room was Spartan and the bathroom was extremely small – and I mean SMALL!!. Only one small piece of soap was provided for the two of us, the toilet paper thin – need I say more? The bathroom door does not fully open being stopped from doing so by the sink. There is nowhere in the bathroom to put one’s toiletries which meant have to complete one’s ablutions (including drying oneself) in the bedroom. The shower pressure was poor.

        • Single
          8.8

          Great location, excellent breakfast, evening meal provided for reasonable 9.90euros. Receptionist was extremely helpful and was willing to discuss and provide information on all historical places worth visiting. I would recommend the Osborne Hotel to family and friends.

        • Single
          7.8

          I have been staying in this hotel 5 times in the past 5 month. Theykeep a good level of comfort and service.

          Having to buy 1 hour internet voucher to the front deck is not something you would expect from an hotel of this range (it should be included in the price of the room). It is not very practical for the guest on business trip. Being in country were english is the second language, you could expect at least one or two english movie channels to enjoy a good movie at night; not italian channels.

        • Family with children
          7.4

          Clean, good location and excelent value for money

          Pillows could be upgraded. Hotel is right next to neighboors and domestic shouting woke us up two early/very early mornings of our stay

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Well positioned for the bus station, the water taxi to Sliema and the town centre. Very helpful staff - particularly Ronald (receptionist), who advised on things to see and do, and booked excursions for us. Room was adequately spacious, clean, modern, with a good shower. Breakfast was good, with plenty of choice. No complaints at all. Would certainly stay there again by choice.

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Very good value for bed and breakfast. Room comfortable, heting efficient and responsive (on cold days!). Shower room small but well fitted out and shower good.

          Evening buffet meal was poor

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          Clean, renovated, great location, wonderful views, efficient and friendly staff. Would definitely visit again and recommend highly.

        • Single
          6.6

          Clean. The staff was polite. The view from the room was beautiful.

          The problem was the renovation was not done well. The sliding shower doors were cheaply made and would not close. The bathroom was inadequately ventilated and was musty, even though quite clean. There was not one additional plug for a computer, etc. The coffee maker would not work. I was obliged to go to the front desk to replace it. No one could bring it to me. It took three efforts to have my room cleaned by 4 pm. There were not many people in the house.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          The whole atomsphere and attention to detail of the staff. The meals were excellent.

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Good location in centre of Valletta and close to bus station. Good breakfast. Friendly staff.

          Some local construction work in progress during our stay in early December. Also some technical issues with fire alarm causing false calls. Check these are now fixed.

        • Older travelers
          3.8

          The airconditioning did not work. The water pressure from the shower was poor. Although the room was spacious, the air quality was not good due to construction works surrounding the hotel building. The restaurant staff were less than polite. They did not greet or smile to guests. For all the hotels that we had stayed in many countries, it was the only one that charged a rental for the use of the key to the safe inside the room. While the charge was minimal, it sounded ridiculous. Would it be going to charge for the use of the toilet in the room?

        • Older travelers
          7.0

          Great location for exploring Valetta.

          Breakfast was uninspiring. Hairdryer in our room belonged on the scrap heap.

        • Older travelers
          8.2

          Friendly and good value

          Building work immediately outside our room from 7.30am every day. Should have been warned about this and offered another room.
