My nights have been troubled here at times. There is a mosquito that buzzes around my head at night. I jettisoned the pillow because it is twice as high as I would want a pillow to be. I have played with and without the comforter, used it as a pillow one night. I do best with the comforter over me - I slept well for quite awhile and then the …

I think my cold has taken a turn for the nose is stuffy and needs blowing and my throat feels congested again. Hmmm, I should have been over this by now. What a drag!

So today was another busy day. I woke up earlier but didn't get up until 7ish when I tried to get into high gear despite my cold symptoms. I washed my "smalls …

Oh, stupidity....

Let's has been a busy day. I got up late - past 8 am - which was somewhat of a problem because I had so much I wanted to do, but the pressure was sort of off because my Hypogeum ticket admission wasn't until 1 pm which made it a little hard to plan around. As I was walking to the bus station, I heard some …

Some days I really hate this Wordpad -- even when I can find the redo command, it still doesn't work. I lost my whole paragraph and have to retype it: I moved hotels today. After breakfast, I checked out of Hotel Osborne with the grumpy young woman. When I asked about storing my bags, she handed me the key to the baggage room. So I left my …

Unpronounceable bays

A travel blog entry by wander-ful


... to be. Bit creative and cut through long grass while others braved it and waded through the thick mud. Still my favourite place in Malta the rock that sticks out in between the two bays. It's breathtaking. What makes it even more special is the minerals in the water make it turquoise, and the waves follow each other in perfect lines, like wrinkles. From here we headed north (towards Gozo) ...

    Fantastic View and Location

    I moved from another hotel to the British Hotel because I hadn't booked enough days for my entire stay. Compared to the other hotel, the British Hotel was more basic, but staff were very pleasant and helpful. The major selling point for me was the location overlooking the Grand Harbour and the fantastic view of harbor activities from my window. I loved to gaze out early in the morning and in the evening when I was in my room. Having wifi was a plus as well.

    Friendly staff, but a very basic and dated hotel lacking any charm. Unfortunately there aren't many options in Valletta, so the quality to price ratio is low. The best thing was the great views overlooking the harbour from the bar and terrace.

    - non-existant heating (one small halogen heater above the bed), no air-con (ceiling fan)

    Make sure to book a room with balcony and view to the grand Harbour - otherwise, get bored to death...

    British Hotel in Valletta Malta


    Stayed at the British Hotel for my Oct, 2004 trip.



    we stayed in three different hotels in valetta and although we had a view over the harbour at the british, it is overpriced for the state of the room - better off checking into the grand harbour down the road, room 19 for example still has a view and is much better priced. or those on a budget can go to asti guest house. much better room even though you have to share a bathroom (spotless). all three hotels are a stone's throw from each other.

    the british staff are very friendly, but it is overpriced.

    Friendly family run hotel


    My son and I stayed here over New Years eve for a week. David and Rita & 3 daughters are the gracious owners and made us feel part of their family. I cannot describe sharing a bottle of champagne with their family overlooking the harbor watching the fireworks at midnight. The castle of the Knights of St. John is across the harbor and looks beautiful at day or night. We felt truly blessed being accepted into this family.

    We stayed in room 114 that had 2 rooms with a private balconey with a million dollar view. The staff is friendly and helpful. Joseph who is the waiter, knew all the history of Malta and we could not learn enough from him.

    Gorgeous Views - Needs some remodeling!


    I can not say enough about the breathtaking views from the restaraunt or from the hotel rooms if your lucky enough to have a port view. It doesnt look real.

    The hotel is stuck in the 70s and needs some major redoing. There is no airconditioning - only in reception - which is somewhat misleading.

    The restaraunt food is very good. Waiters are extremely friendly!!

    I would not stay here again only because of the fact there was no air conditioning. But if you dont mind that than I would definetly recommend it!!

    Great View and Location


    We just stayed one night there. The location and view over the harbour are really great. The rooms are ok (although a little on the smaller side), but the bed was squeaking on every little movement. No AC (but a fan). Nevertheless, well worth the price.

    Wonderful Location Grand Harbour View


    We Arrived on EU night Friday 30th May, Front room overlooking the Grand Harbour great night. Hotel was clean and tidy, good food, Walking distance to city centre. ask for Room 106 or 105 they have a shared terrace. Top Choice.

    Superb location


    The family-run British Hotel is superbly located for the person who is either on a business or cultural visit to Malta. While enjoying the maginficent views of the Grand Harbour, it is both quiet and centrally located, near to e.g. the PM's palace or the main business street, as well as not far from the central bus terminal of the island from where all buses leave. This way one can save a lot of time. The hotel is very clean and the staff friendly and helpful. Highly recommendable for those who do not require a swimming pool or TV or a busy nightlife scene, but look for a clean, practically located hotel that is integrated into the architecture of this city and does not 'bite' with it, with magnificent harbour views both at day and night, at fair prices.
