... the day for both of us was good, Chris is still going to the gym and enjoying it (as much as you can enjoy the gym!). We chose to have Indian food for dinner tonight as a treat and decided on the weekend that we will finally visit Marsaxlokk since the weather is meant to be sunny - so fingers ...
... classic cars were in Little Italy, attracting many families and authentic car lovers. What I liked about Mdina is that all these beautiful old cars and motorcycles were all in that pjazza. The owners were all proudly standing next to it and answering the judge’s questions. They were being rated and admired by car fans at the same time. I couldn’t stay too long there if I wanted to go to Ta’Qali before ...
... outside that tried to pull at our hair and push sand into our eyes. After a short visit in Paola we made our way back to Valletta where finally we got back onto a public bus taking us to our hotel. Where we stayed most the rest of the evening relaxing and calming our riled bodies and stomachs.
Being our last night in Mala we made sure to make a final stop at our Gelato shop, packed for home and rested for the long trip ahead.
... picks the trumps....sorry Mark we can't remember what it's called! You won anyway! It was so nice in Zlendi that we stayed another day and had a wander around the small seaside town having full English breakfast in the cafe next morning and then a delicious meal in another restaurant by the water that night.
Next morning we were away at 10.15 to head back to Malta to get Mark back for his Sunday morning flight next day. We had a good sail with a ...
... as we strolled in search of dinner, there were times where it was just us, with not a single other soul in view. Travelers are always in search of that next "Wow" moment, and we had the fortune of experiencing one tonight here in Mdina. It's not a feeling you have very often while traveling, and it is even rarer to find yourself nearly alone in such a beautiful spot - definitely not something we will soon ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Alexandra Hotel Malta Saint Julian's
Habe keine Ahnung, worüber man sich im Alexandra Hotel so beschweren muss. Es ist kein 5* Hotel und das wusste ich auch, als ich es für meine Tochter und mich gebucht hatte. Waren im November für 26 Tage hier und haben jeden Minute davon genossen. Ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis, saubere Zimmer, gutes Frühstück, die Bar und das Bistro waren gut und hatten akzeptable Preise. Die Angestellten waren freundlich und sie haben sich sehr um uns bemüht. Es liegt in der Nähe von allem, 5 Minuten von Sliema und 15 Minuten von Valletta entfernt, 20Cent (Malteser) pro Weg, es gibt sicherlich bessere Hotels als das ALEXANDRA auf Malta, die sind aber auch viel teurer. Werde im Mai 2008 wieder nach Malta fliegen und meine Schwester mitbringen...natürlich werde ich wieder hier wohnen. Man kann es eben nicht jedem recht machen. Anthony Saliba, Gold Coast Qld.

Immonde, moche - N'y allez pas!!!
Cet hôtel était vraiment moche. L'hôtel le plus révoltant de Malte, les draps puaient, ils n'avaient pas été lavés, et la chambre n'a pas été rénovée depuis le début du siècle. Il se trouve au centre de Paceville qui fait partie depuis peu de la ville de Malte.
Si vous voulez une nuit de sommeil correcte, évitez cet hôtel. En fait, évitez cet hôtel en général. Ah et autre chose, il n'est pas situé à St Julian (qui est un quartier de Malte très joli, mais à Paceville (prononcer Patchi-ville). On y est restés une nuit et on s'est barrés vite fait !
Ils disent être un trois étoiles, mais selon moi, cet hôtel ne devrait même pas être dans un système d'étoiles, à moins qu'ils décident de tout démolir et d'en construire un autre !
Conseil final : évitez à tous prix !!!
Pas aussi calme qu'on le pense
Je pensais que l'histoire de l'eau du robinet salée était une blague, et bien non. Tout ce qui sortait du robinet était salé. Les chambres étaient propres, pas aussi grande que je l'imaginais pour trois.
Il y avait du bruit. On entendait très bien les voisins ou les passants faire la fête dehors.
L'hôtel n'est pas loin des resorts mais il est aussi près de tous les bars. Le personnel est très gentil en tous cas. Mais si je devais retourner dans le coin, je ne choisirai pas le même hôtel.
COULDN'T WAIT TO GET OUT!!!
I had booked my four teenage children into this hotel, as it was around the corner from our fabulous hotel, (HILTON) and they had asked for a cheaper option as they wanted to go clubbing. Fair do's I thought.
Imagine my horror as one by one they rang me soon after arriving at 2 am to tell me how dreadful it was and how disappointed they were with the standard of the hotel (and thats from teenagers used to 18-30's)
At £450 each, I don't think it is a cheap option-even if it is in the height of summer.
Thankfully, our rep was marvellous and negotiated a move straight away -free of charge, but to Sliema , 2 miles away. A little inconvenient, but a whole lot cleaner and a better standard of room. The list of things wrong with the Alexander Palace are too many to mention-but whole heartedly agree with previous posts.I only wish I'd had the for thought to take pictures to show you, but we just couldn't wait to get them moved. The pictures on the web and in the brochure look nothing like the real deal.
The name in no way reflects the standard of this hotel, and I've complained to the holiday company asking them how on earth they can put it in their brochure alongside such fab hotels as The Hilton or Xara Palace?
I only wish I'd acted on the previous advice on this page.
DO NOT STAY HERE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!! And if like me you've already booked and think it's too late-it isn't, phone up your rep or agent right now and change it, you will be disappointed if you don't.
Horrible, vergonzoso- NO TE QUEDES AQUÍ!!!!
Este hotel era vergonzoso. Sin duda el hotel más repugnante de Malta, las sábanas de la cama olían/no estaban lavadas y no han renovado la habitación desde el siglo pasado, está justo en el centro de Paceville, que recientemente se ha convertido en la capital de la marcha de Malta, si quieres dormir decentemente evita este hotel, de hecho, no vayas a este hotel bajo ningún concepto, ah otra cosa es que no está situado en San Julián (que es una parte preciosa de Malta, está situado en Paceville, que se pronuncia Pachivil). Nos quedamos una noche y nos marchamos por patas. Ah el hotel dice ser de 3 estrellas, eh, creo que este hotel no debería ni siquiera tener estrellas a menos que decidan derribar este y construir uno nuevo. Un consejo final- EVÍTALO POR TODOS LOS MEDIOS!!!!
No tan tranquilo como piensas
Pensaba que lo del agua del grifo salada era una broma, pero no. Todo lo que salía de cualquier grifo estaba salado. Las habitaciones estaban limpias, pero no eran de grandes como había imaginado para un hotel de 3 estrellas. No era tranquilo. Era fácil oir a los vecinos y la gente de marcha fuera. El hotel está cerca de los complejos turísticos, pero también está cerca de todos los bares. Sin embargo, el personal del hotel es muy agradable. Si volviera de nuevo, no me quedaría en el mismo hotel.
Where do I begin... we booked a double room, were given 2 single beds. It wasn't fixed until the next night. The walls were so thin, we could hear someone snoring all night, not to mention every single person that walked down the hall past our room. The rooms were clean-ish.
We took off to Sicily for 2 days (and did NOT check out), then returned to find our room had been given away, even though we had left some belongings there. Again, we were given a room with 2 single beds instead but this time the toilet didn't work and the curtains didn't close properly. The next day I complained about it and was given a better room with a real double bed, and offered dinner and a bottle of wine for our inconvenience. A refund for the previous night was not possible because our room had been booked over the internet. We took the wine to our room and declined the dinner because there are too many good places to eat in Malta.
On our last morning, we decided to give the breakfast a go since it was included in our package. What a mistake. It was shocking. Thank god we opted out of the free dinner the night before.
I will say that the staff did try to help us a lot, but what a frustrating experience. The hotel is a dive, super noisy and full of young partiers. I guess that's what you get for booking cheap, but I truly have never had problems like this on a budget holiday before.
Awful, Disgraceful - DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!
This hotel was disgraceful. Absolutely the most revolting hotel on Malta, the bed sheets smelt / unwashed and the room has not been renovated since the turn of the century, it's right in the heart of the Paceville which in recent times has become party capital of Malta, if you want a decent nights sleep avoid this hotel, in fact avoid this hotel altogether, oh another thing it's not located in St Julian (which is a lovely part of Malta, it's located in Paceville, pronounced Patch~i~Ville). We stayed one night and got the hell out. Oh Hotel claims to be three stars, Er don't think this hotel should even be on a rating system unless they decide to pull this down and rebuild a new one. One final advice - AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!!!
Not as quiet as you think
I thought the thing about the salt-tap water was a joke, but no. Anything that came out of a tap was salty. The rooms were clean, not as large as I imagined for 3. It was not quiet. It was very easy to hear neighbors and people partying outside. The hotel is close to the resorts, but it also very close to all the bars. The staff is very nice, though. If I were to go again, I would not stay in the same hotel.
If you are looking for somewhere quiet in St Julians
This place is ideal if you are looking for a quiet night away from the noise of Paceville but close at hand to all of the resorts bars/restaurants. The hotel is only a 5 minute stroll from the central area of St Julians but this is sufficient to guarantee you a nights sleep if you are not content to party until the early hours.
The main drawback with the hotel is that the standard of the rooms are not the highest and a 3 star rating is a little generous however they are sufficient for most needs and are cleaned daily. Just don't expect a stand up shower and beware all showers are salt water (allegedly this is the case throughout malta) which is fine if you like to go out smelling of the mediterrean.
There is a small rooftop pool and a bigger pool on the bottom floor combined with a large sun terrace. The food was average and the staff friendly enough. All in all not bad but you get what you pay for I guess. The main bonus is its quiet and compared to others I was holidaying with who stayed in the other more notable St Julians hotels I was the only one who could sleep before 6.00am.
