Our favourite rooms
They’re all a bit wondrous (Suites 1–5 classically so, while 6–8 lean more towards modernism), but the 360-degree views from Suite 7, the penthouse, are extra magnificent, and you can lounge in the hot tub while you enjoy them. Suite 5 has the winning combination of high ceilings and a piano. If you have your heart set on a roll-top bath, opt for 2, 3 or 5.
Leave the Louboutins at home: pack for pounding the cobbled mediaeval streets of endlessly explorable Valletta. If you’re anything of a linguist, throw a Maltese phrase book in your carry-on: it’s a particularly intriguing tongue.
The breakfast room and reception are all wheelchair accessible, as is the specially adapted Suite 1, which has a wet room.
Over-12s are accepted, but the hotel’s designed much more with adults in mind.
