Great View, No Security, not worth the cost

Posted Jul 8, 2014
Pros: The pool and the view
Cons: Linens changed, better A/C, better wi-fi signal.
Location: On the opposite side of everything there is to do in St. Paul's Bay.
The salt water pool was amazing, simply amazing. Right on the water and right next to the bar for refreshments. And my 4th floor balcony had the best view right over the water perfect for sunrise. That about ends the good points. Breakfast is not always included and for 6 euros a day you can find a much better option for less just down the street. The elevator is teeny tiny (could hold one person and one suitcase) and was ever so slow. My bed linens had visible holes from where previous customers had burnt it with their cigarettes. Luckily there was no smell. The A/C was virtually non-existant, you have to use your room key to turn on the A/C which means it will be off if you are not in the room it's off. And there's not much power going to those units anyway. The doors to the rooms are sketchy at best, they do not lock other than you need a key in the door handle but there is no other means of locking the door from the inside. Upon check in I misread the room number on my key, went to open the wrong room door and that door popped right open! There is wi-fi, for a modest fee, but in my room on the 4th floor there was only one area of the room that got wi-fi signal...the bathroom. How awkward.

Pleasant overnight stay!

Posted Jun 21, 2012 on Hotels.com
Taking in consideration what I had paid for this overnight stay I was so satisfied with everything this little hotel has to offer. The staff was so helpful and friendly, and albeit a bit small the room was very clean and comfortable with good airconditioning. The pool area was well kept with clean pool water, clean toilets and showers. The restaurant which is run by 'The Chef' served us delicious food and good wine. And parking was not a problem. We will surely return - thanks!

It does the job

Posted Aug 30, 2011
The hotel does provide good service and the front desk staff are friendly. The hotel 'does the job' as a good base to stay for your trip to malta. It's in the north so it's near the beaches but 20km from Valetta and the south which is probably a better place to stay. Our room was fine, clean although towels weren't changed that often. Our double bed was two single beds pushed together and there was only one chair on the balcony! It had good air con and a good shower. Food is not poor but not great - not a lot of variety at breakfast but again, did the job. There is a beautiful view of the bay from the hotel and restaurants in the area are fairly good. Wouldn't recommend but good value for money if you're not looking for a luxurious place to stay.

Ambassador Hotel - Malta 3/5

Posted Jul 16, 2011 on Hotels.com
The hotel is quite nice, staff are friendly, rooms are big (tip we got a sea view room, but even if you get a side sea room you still get to see a good view of the bay and you'll save money). The breakfast arrangements were a bit confusing and the breakfast wasn't the best. The area itself is VERY quiet, ideal for couples and maybe people who rent a car. The bus service has just recently changed to Arriva in Malta and is currently a nightmare (buses breaking down, crowded etc) I would suggest hiring a car. Otherwise Malta is a beautiful country and if your British, the people will love you even more!

Not impressed.

Posted Jun 21, 2011
The hotel was 30 minutes away from the airport with a costly taxi ride. This was unknown to me when I booked with Expedia. The WIFI was down, the computers the hotel offered were down, and the televisions were down. The television was fixed the next day. However, I read the internet availability and planned to do work while relaxing which was impossible with the technical problems the hotel failed to inform me with prior to arrival. The staff was nice. The hotel is located in a very quite part of town with no life after 7 pm. This was another unknown surprise and not a good one.

Great service for an excellent price

Posted Oct 29, 2010
The Ambassor Hotel was a bargain offering a bed and breakfast rate less than half that of UK Premier Inn/Travelodge and for that I recieved a friendly welcome, great service and a clean room. I'm sure the owners would not disagree that the hotel is slightly faded but for an end of season, great value and convienient location I would fully recommend this hotel.

Not living up to expectations

Posted Nov 2, 2007
Staff helpful but facilities and decor suffering from under investment. Food basic and boring!!!! After 7 breakfasts with no change yuk! Pool area good and bar ok although the bar man could be a bit friendlier. Limited information on travel on buses and no availaibility of maps etc in hotel.
