After Rabat, I boarded a bus back to Sliema to shop in the area west of our hotel. I spent some time in a decent sized shopping mall as well as a few freestanding stores. I tried to pick out things that were distinctly different from our style in the U.S., and was able to find a few unique pieces that I've never seen back home.
While I was out shopping, the wind ...

We flew in to Malta late Friday evening and didn't have much of a chance to see Malta in the taxi ride from the airport, but had a quick look around St Julian's bay and dining district when we went out for dinner. What we saw was a massive surprise. I'm not sure what it was that we expected to see or experience when we came to Malta, but already it was surprising us. As Malta had been under British rule ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Victoria Hotel Sliema
My wife and I spent 14days at the Victoria Hotel in May this year and repeated it in October, overall our 3rd visit and have every intention of returning .We can highly recommend this first class hotel which is situated in a quiet residential area, just 5 minutes walk to the seafront with a lovely promenade. Where you will find a very frequent bus service which will take you to most parts of the island and very cheap too. It is a very well run hotel and the staff could not be more helpful,everyone is greeted with a smile. It is very tastefully furnished in the Victorian style & decor. We stayed on a H.B. basis and found the meals (buffet style) excellent value for money with a very good variety.
We find the Maltese people very friendly and always ready to help the visitor.
I chose this hotel as it got very good reviews but was disappointed. The positives were that the hotel rooms were clean and it was situated in a quiet residential area away from traffic noise.
An excellent 4 star hotel
I have visited Malta on many occasions and this is by far the best hotel I have stayed in. I did a bit of research using this website before booking the hotel. I can only agree with the many comments about how helpful and friendly all the staff are. The food is buffet style but is changed each night. The bar is very nice and some of the bar staff are real characters. Forget the five star hotels in the rather unpleasant St Julians and stay here. You will not be disappointed. Only gripe is that there was only one english language TV channel (BBC World).
My wife and I stayed at the Victoria for one week in May 05 and were very impressed with the hotel. We had a corner room (732) on the 7th floor and had a balcony on which we could have held a dance for 50 people. This would be the only room probably with such a balcony. There is a nice pub just around the corner and the sea front or harbour are both about a 5 minute walk from the hotel. There is an excellent restaurant called
Il-Merill in St Vincent street, again about 5 minutes walk in which we ate 4 evenings out of 7.
Silema bus station and ferry to Valletta are also very close.
We stayed at the Victoria Hotel from April 7th to April 14th and then again from April 24th to April 26th. I can't say enough great things about the hotel. First of all, since it is a boutique hotel, it is very quaint and intimate. The rooms are really lovely and tastefully decorated...and it was great to have coffee/tea facilities in the room. We were on the 7th floor and had a lovely view of Sliema and the water. The hotel staff were so friendly and always willing to help you. They couldn't do enough for you. The hotel is in a residential area so it was extremely quiet every night. And the food was delicious, especially the desserts! There wasn't a huge selection of food at the buffet, but they certainly made up for it in quality! Although the hotel is not on the waterfront, it is only about a 5 minute walk to the waterfront (and to the bus stop). We will definitely stay at this hotel again!
This hotel is in the centre of Sliema residential area, but is close to the sea front in Sliema and St Juliens. It is clean, comfortable and very friendly. The staff is extremely helpful, and cannot do enough to make your stay a nice experience.
The best hotel I've visited
It's an excellent hotel. Very good. Near to bus station, all directions. Very good breakfast and beds. The swimmingpool is excellent with jacuzzi!
We've just got back17/02/04 after staying for a week at the Hotel Victoria. The hotel was great and it had the best bed I've slept in it was so comfortable. The hotel is on top of a hill so may not be suitable for some but although not on the sea front it is in a good location. the food was buffet stlye all you could eat affair, and was fine rather than fantastic but you could go A-La-Carte if you wanted.the rooftop terrace looked nice although it was closed while we were there. the pool was on the small side but thats not a critisism just a fact.The staff are warm and friendly and the bar a nice comfortable place to have a drink or two.The view from our room was over the rooftops of Sliema but it never bothered us but if you want a room with a view request a 7th floor room with an odd number standing on the rooftop terrace above these rooms we reckon they had views overlooking the harbour towards Valletta. If you want a room with a double bed rather than twin beds I would advise you to e-mail ahead(like I did) with your request,especially for the 7th floor rooms
Wonderful place to stay.
The Victoria Hotel in Sliema is an ideal spot to stay on your journey to Malta. A close walk to many excellent restaurants, shopping and the bus, the hotel features excellent views of Sliema and Valetta from the roof-top pool and the surprisingly helpful and pleasant staff are always on hand. Rooms are a fair size and sport comfortable furniture.
Beware that the ACs will make your room considerably cooler than outdoors, but it never reaches room temperature.
The Victoria Hotel is a superb high quality hotel. We can not fault the hotel in anyway. The staff are so helpful and always smiling. The rooms are of a high quality with all the added extras i.e. air conditioning, t.v. minibar (which is not expensive) the food was of a good quality and plenty of it. The whole hotel is run to a very high standard and as a guest you are made to feel special. The hotel is situated in a residential area but is in easy reach of the sea front or harbour. If you are thinking of visiting Sliema then I can highly recommend the Victoria as the place to stay.
