Historical Traveller Reviews of The Victoria Hotel

Super smashing great lovely.....

from A TripAdvisor Member
I've just returned after a week at the Victoria Hotel (18-25 June) in Sliema, Malta.

What a brilliant experience! I booked direct with the hotel and received an excellent service from Andy Tanti, the front of house manager. He arranged our private the taxi from the airport as well.

We arrived late at night but all the staff who greeted us were very happy, smiley, even at 11.30 at night.

Nothing was ever too much trouble at this hotel, our room maid (Christine) even asked us what time she would like us to clean the room so as not to disturb us.

Following advice from other trip advisor comments managed to get us a room on the 7th floor overlooking the sea.

Yes the pool is a tad small but it was sufficient and there was always enough sunbeds.
The pool bar was handy for lunch (recommend the chicken, tomato and mayo sandwiches!).

As the hotel is situated on the top of hill it may be inaccessible to those with some walking difficulties, however, for us it was a perfect way to walk off the excesses of dinner.
You were only a 10 minutes walk from either the seafront or the port.

Great, non-resort-type hotel

We had planned a trip to Malta and had been let down with our accommodation right at the last minute. We then found a great price for a week's stay at the Victoria, based upon various tripadvisor comments.
We arrived very early - but they were very accommodating and were very happy to look after our luggage and show us to the changing rooms and showers by the pool where we could spend an hour whilst they sorted the room.
On the second day we missed breakfast, but no worry, the restaurant staff were very helpful and told us to go to the snack bar by the roof-pool and they would sort something out, which they did.
The pool was very small, but there is a jacuzzi and, after all, the sea offers much better swimming than a hotel pool all around you.
The room was very good - we had managed to book a junior suite at an amazing price. The room maid was also very friendly and chatty and couldn't do enough to help us (typically maltese, I guess). Everyone we had contact with in this hotel made us feel very comfortable. Breakfast had a good selection of food, though I would say that the cooked food wasn't the best I had ever had.
I would definitely recommend this hotel - it is lovely inside, and is situated right in the middle (at the top of the hill) of Sliema - surely a far nicer place to stay than the Brit-colonised Bugibba and Qawra.
Oh yes - we hired a car - parkig was free all week.

Great location and good value

from sunseeker06
Advertised as a 4 star but this is pushing it a bit. The lobby is nice and the bar looks the part but the rooms have seen better days.

Our room had blue furniture for some reason, which was functional and clean but old and didn't always close! Someone else in our party had a neighbouring room and had more up to date furniture, so think it is pot luck.

Bathroom had a few stains but was clean and towels were good. Balcony very small, just about get two chairs on it, but there wasn't exactly much to see anyway just the street below and houses opposite.

Looking around Sliema there wasn't anything obviously better than the Victoria, so think it is the best you will get.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The pool area is a bit small for the size hotel, but there is alternative seating / laying areas that could be used. Sunbeds were a bit in short supply, but we did visit out of season, perhaps more appear at peak times?

One of the most annoying things was the lifts. If you need a lift and cannot manage stairs, you will be waiting a long time. They appear to have a life of their own and bear no logic.

Saying all this we had a nice time and the location really helps, you can walk into town (coast) in a few minutes, there are some shops close and the harbour for cruises is only 5 mins away.

If I returned to Malta (which is unlikely) I would stay here again.

Great Hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
We have just returned from a two week stay at the Victoria.

We found the staff very friendly and helpful.The room was of a good standard and following advice on this forum requested a 7th floor room and had lovely views and very quiet as well!

The food was plentiful and varied with good choice each day.

We would certainly return to this hotel and enjoyed our stay.

very nice hotel

from A TripAdvisor Member
Just returned from a week's stay at the Victoria Hotel.I would highly recommend this hotel,it is one of the best hotel I have stayed in Europe.The rooms are spacious by European standards and very clean.The decor is tasteful and elegant and the staff are friendly and helpful.The meals are buffet style and the food is good (sorry if you like chips with everything you will be disappointed as they were not on the menue once).My only complaint albeit a small one is that the toaster at breakfast was very hit and miss,but in the hotel's defence they were very happy to toast bread in the kitchen,nothing was too much touble.All things considered I would rate this hotel as nine out of ten.

Good value

from A TripAdvisor Member
My wife and I stayed at The Victoria Hotel for 3 weeks on an all-inclusive deal through senior tours Canada in Nov. 2002. The hotel and staff were great, the food, indifferent,but ample. The hotel is very central and we found we could walk to many of the local attractions. Since lunch was not provided we were able to eat at the local resturants and had a great time trying as many different eateries as possible. Altogether a great stay and a wonderful holiday.

d certainly stay there again if we returned to Malta

from A TripAdvisor Member
We stayed at the Victoria Hotel for two weeks over Christmas 2005. Throughout our stay we found the staff to be very helpful and friendly. The breakfasts/dinners were buffet style, and the food was plentiful, varied, and of high quality. I have coeliac disease, and the chefs were very helpful about making sure that I had the gluten-free diet that I need. Our standard bedroom was larger than some executive rooms we've stayed in. There was a problem with the hot water during part of our stay, due to a problem with public water supply. Our complaint was taken seriously and dealt with courteously.

WOW!!! - Felt like Royalty

from pauljones
We have just returned from our second visit from The Victoria Hotel and again it was an unforgettable experience. This time we stayed in one of their new suites in the Palazzo Capua.

Our room was incredibly big with a duplex setting and a four poster bed. The room even had two plasma TVs. We were told that these rooms have only been available since November and the décor and furnishings are absolutely top notch.

The Palazzo is a 200 year old building which was the residence of Prince Charles of Capua, knowing the rich history really made us feel like royalty.

Will certainly return and will recommend the Victoria and the new suites to all my friends.

Not as good as expected but enjoyable.

from gsmanson
I stayed at the Victoria in July. I found the staff to be very friendly but rather inefficient. The check in and check out was very slow as there was only one member of staff on duty. A car that I booked to pick me up at the airport failed to appear for which the management was very apologetic and arranged for a free transfer back to the airport. Breakfast is basic but enjoyable.

I read the very positive reviews on this site and booked up. What I found was a comfortable hotel run by friendly staff who are rather disorganised. Things took a long time to happen but as I was there for a relaxing holiday I was not in a rush and enjoyed the laid back experience! It is not a great hotel but it is a pleasant place to stay.

Even though I encountered some problems I would go back to the Victoria because of its location, value for money and friendly staff. I would recommend a visit; just don't expect too much!

Disappointed

from A TripAdvisor Member
I stayed at this hotel based on the good reviews that I read on this website, and I regret it.

Pros:
1) The lobby looked nice.

Cons:
1) Our reservation was for a non-smoking, double-bed room but a got a smoking with twin beds. When we requested for a double bed, all they did was push the two beds together. Also, check-in and check-out was very slow.

2) The bathroom did not have any ventilation and smelled moldy. The shampoo and soaps were not replenished everyday.

3) The bedroom ventilation in general was horrible. It was very dry and I ended up getting ill.

4) The beds were not comfortable at all.

5) There is too much construction noise every morning which you can hear in the room even when the sliding door was closed. There was not one day that I had a comfortable sleep.

6) There is a charge for room safe and internet access.

7) There is only one english tv channel - BBC.

8) There is no alarm clock in the room.

Top Local Tips for Sliema

Good and bad places for food Though most places pretty much serve the same menu (roughly Italian with a couple of Maltese and burger and chip options), we had some good and one poor dining experience. I'd highly recommend Vino Veritas, Tony's bar and Ponte Vecchio.

Keep it local!!! Try the local wine, either red or white...Its by far the cheapest on any menu (about £4-5), tastes pretty good, and goes down far too well!!!

Things to do in Sliema. Sliema, like many towns, has an excellent view of the sea. The waterside path is a wonderful place to take a stroll in the early evening by yourself or with friends/family. People of all ages sit in little alcove benches or walk the path.
