A Week at the Imperial

Having just returned from a week at the Imperial, I found that this hotel exceeded my expectations. Every aspect was more than satisfactory and the building itself is a gem. The hotel will appeal to older people without children as it is away from the action and on a hill which may be a problem for the unfit, although a bus stop is by the hotel with a half hourly service to Valleta. Whilst this is a 3* hotel which is modestly priced, the dining room would do justice to a 4* place. A cooked breakfast is available at extra charge. The staff were all friendly, the rooms spotless, the food good. For the right clientele this hotel is hard to beat. I thoroughly recommend it.

Could have stayed another week

I am mildly disabled and had no idea how I would cope with the warning of hills etc around the hotel. However we found that this was not enough of a problem to stop us from thoroughly enjoying our holiday and indeed wishing we could stay a second week. We discovered that English breakfasts, amongst other things, were available on request, and the evening meals were superb. Packed lunches were ample and never a problem to make up at a moment's notice. Our room was perhaps a bit Spartan to some but we found it contained everything we needed and we were comfortable there, spending a fair amount of time there for me to rest. Water pressure was a problem, but is that island wide? The cost of poolside food was a bit high. We thought that the decor of the hotel, although old, reflected the history of the island extremely well, and found no problem with the condition of the building (once you learned how to use the lift!!) Staff was brilliant, from the receptionist right through to the cleaners. There is just so much positive that I could say about the hotel but I think this sums it up: We enjoyed our week there so much that we chose not to spend our honeymoon in a posh beachfront hotel as advised, but to go back to the Imperial which we will be doing in 2 weeks time.

No English Breakfast at the Imperial

My wife and I have recently returned from a short holiday in Malta, staying at the Imperial Hotel in Sliema. We searched the internet for a holiday in Malta, in a quiet hotel. The Imperial certainly met those criteria. It is a very old building dating back from the 1860's and it is somewhat faded to say the least. We found the staff to be polite and very helpful indeed. The room was clean if a little spartan. The water pressure was very low which made it difficult to have a proper shower. The corridors are not carpeted which resulted in a lot of noise especially at night, with guests coming and going.
The pool area is quite dilapidated but the pool was clean. There are insufficient sun beds around the pool which led to the inevitable "reserving by towel". Surprisingly enough this was mainly down to Brits and not the Germans!!!! There are no poolside showers as such but there was a shower in the nearby toilets, which again, were very clean.
My wife and I were on B & B so cannot pass comment on the evening meal, however I found the breakfast meal to be somewhat plain. Although the guests were prominently from the UK the breakfast catered completely for "Continental" guests!! I found out during the second week of my stay that "eggs and bacon" were available but at EXTRA cost.
One major point I feel I must make is about the hotels location - it is situated on a hill in a very built up area! The seaside is at least ten minutes walk from the hotel which ever part of Sliema you want to visit and there are no buses passing the hotel! If you suffer from any infirmity that requires a walking aid then this is not the hotel for you!!!
Whilst the hotel makes an effort with in house entertainment in the evening it is aimed at the more elderly clientele - there are no discos or boozing games here. There is nothing for children to do in this hotel.
In summary, if you want a quiet, friendly clean hotel at a reasonable price and are not too fussy about the decor and standard of food, then this is for you, otherwise look elsewhere!

Top Local Tips for Sliema

Malta Bus service Use the local Malta bus service. Fare are very cheap, and there are frequent and reliable bus services evrerywhere worth a visit. Bus drivers, unlike all other Malta people, are not too helpful so it is vital to get a bus route map etc, to plan your journeys.Use public transport rather than the very expensive oragnised tours offered by tour reps, much better value, and not resticted to their times.

Excellent value, and an adventure While Sliema is easy to get around on foot, for exploring Malta don't bother with trips organised by tour operators. The buses take you to most parts of the island and it is easy to get around. The buses are cheap, and definitely an adventure - being more like the bone-shakers that used to drive on our country roads.

Getting around Use public transport, its very cheap
