Well firstly I have to say that this guest house (not hotel) really does have the WOW factor. So all the rooms are unique & furnished to a very high standard.
As soon as you walk into the main door you will say WOW. As we walked into the living area, WOW. We chose the Fresco room and soon as we walked in we both said WOW. The place is really like a designer style pad & really does have the WOW factor.
The team, Will, Zaklina and Gaga were all very helpful. Will even took time out to tell us what to do around Malta and plan an itinerary.
Breakfast was served at a very reasonable time between 9 and 11. I liked that as normally at hotels it's like between 7 and 10, and who gets up at that time on holiday! And, in my opinion the breakfast was just right to get you through the morning until lunch and allow you to get out and explore. After all who wants to have a massive breakfast and then worry about visiting the bathroom when you have all of Malta to explore!
Overall we really loved staying at the guest house, the Fresco Room was stunning, the closeness of the place to everything, and the fantastic efforts that Will, Zaklina and Gaga took to ensure that our stay was perfect. And I also have to comment on Will and how he made us feel like special. Indeed we could see that good customer service was Will's priority. It was very humbling to see that The Host Boutique Guesthouse was his passion. And that Will treated people that stayed there more like friends than customers.
Pros: Actually it's a guest house not a hotel. But it's a very palatial, sumptuous & designer style guest house. & the people that run it are very helpful.
Cons: Our stay was perfect. Not much could be improved. Everything was just right for our 7 night stay.
Location: The Host Malta is very close to Balutta Bay, St Julians and Sliema. All within walking distance. You can plan to see Mdina & Valleta from this place.
