We loved our stay at the Waterfront in Sliema. We could catch a bus within walking distance. The ferry to Valletta is 5 minute walk from the hotel. The staff is welcoming and friendly. If you don't know Malta uses 230-volt plugs so your European or American plugs will not work however the hotel has them for your use. The hotel called a taxi for us to use from the airport and to the airport. I would very much recommend this hotel.

We had a really wonderful stay at the Waterfront, Sliema. The room was spacious and clean with a really good partial sea view (we could actually see it really well, not just a slither!), the staff were really friendly helping us to book tables and calling taxis. The pool across the road that you get free access to is a stone's throw and is absolutely fantastic with the surrounding harbour views. The ferry to Valetta is just a 5 minutes walk and there are many bars and restaurants really close to the hotel (Vegans/veggies go to Suzie-Q's, Ayu and Balance Bowl). Breakfast at the hotel was lovely with lots of options, and the restaurant menu was also really good for vegetarians/vegans which was great for us. There are often happy hours and offers on drinks which we took advantage of at the terrace bar (which is stunning in the evening when the sun is going down). The only tiny issue we had was a leak in our bathroom ceiling but honestly it couldn't have been sorted any quicker and didn't cause us any problems - the maintenance team were on it! The only bit of feedback I'd have is for the hotel to have recycling bins in the rooms and for them to find a more eco-friendly way of providing shower gel/shampoo/conditioners. Other than this the stay was amazing and we really enjoyed our time in Malta, thank you! :) x

Started poorly, given a room on the 2nd floor which they couldn’t move until the next day. Noise from the road terrible and then scraping from the chairs in the restaurant above had a horrible night. However we were moved the next day to a higher floor and this solved all issues hence why I couldn’t give excellent as the first night was so bad

Overall I had a very nice stay here. The common areas and spa are quite nice and updated. The rooftop dining area is nice as well. There are great views from both the terrace and the rooftop. The only thing that seems a bit outdated is the rooms. It might just have been the room I stayed in but they could definitely use some updating. Overall I would stay here again.
