Cheap, but not comfortable
Price, location, friendliness of staff, adapter plug rental, restaurants around. Water pressure
Heating from above, a strong draft in the room, paper thin walls.
OK. Would not pay summer prices to stay.
Rooms, although clean were basic. Staff were friendly. Good location for buses/ferries etc.
Only 2 very small & slow lifts. Rooms are designed for sleeping in, and not for staying in as very basic in nature. Good local transport outside the hotel, but mixed in with lots of local traffic - can imagine the noise in the height of summer.
The view from the hotel was impressive. We stayed on the sixth floor. And of cause the location.
The breakfast buffet was extremely boring.
The reception staff were very helpful in terms of my questions, giving advice on how to go places around Malta.
The big problem for me was Internet access: I couldn't get the wi-fi access that was advertised on the top floor of the hotel and the card system was very expensive (ie 3 euros for 75 minutes, 2 euros for 20 minutes, but was never for the full amount, always less). Moreover, the location wasn't ideal for me, as I was in Malta for work and had to go back to the capital Valletta to go anywhere. Next time I'll stay in Valletta as the surrounding district of Sliema is pretty run-down and there's not much to do, ie. no real beaches or historical sites to visit.
I liked the room, food and staff. I was made to feel very welcome
no english channels on TV
The room was very small, me and my cabin bagage and it was full. It seems to be a place not reformed since 80s, and it need it. Very old and cracked forniture and toilet. Breakfast options are very poor.
Location, in front of Sliema Sea, it's located in a very animated street with lots of cafés and terraces.
Unfortunately, almost everything. Small elevators, a bedroom with accepts (alcatifa) (which is no longer used), very few light, very bad matresses (bad for your back) with no dais (estrado), no remote control for TV, bathroom with no bidet, just a small light, no water pressure in the bath and in the washing closet, poor breakfast and everywhere we go a bad smell of fried food mixed with mold (mofo) of a building and structure that has not followed tourism evolution and minimum conditions to be given to its clients. It seems Marina Hotel has stopped in time. Not to repeat, not to return, not to advise to anyone, that's for sure.
The front desk staff were always kind and helpful. They responded to my requests right away and gave me information I needed.
Position in town of Sliema. Extreme friendliness of staff. Easy access to all services to visit all parts of island.
Leaving! Wasn't what i expected it to be for the money paid.
No air con as stated it had. It was actually a heater, which wasn't a lot of use with temperatures around mid 30'sc. The room was very dirty ie. mucky walls, headboard on bed was black with dirt, torn stained matteress and furniture from the 1960's. I thought when i walked in the room i'd stepped into a cheap B & B in Blackpool. View from window was to a dirty courtyard which comprised of waste food, knives and forks, used condoms all thrown down on to the roof below and on courtyard. The breakfast offered on the B & B basis was only toast or cereal, very basic indeed. I paid extra for the hotel as it was supposedly in a good location. It was a huge dissapointment and i will never be wasting my money to go there again.
Its location is excellent and the view from the balcony over the harbour is spectacular. Very convenient for everything.The breakfast was large. The good thing about this hotel is its location.
Smoking is allowed in the bedrooms and our room smelled of cigarette smoke. The hotel appears to be in a 60's/70's time warp and furniture and fittings reflect this. Also, although it was not cheap (Euro 100 per night) it had a very high proportion of young, backpacking guests, which was unexpected. On two of the three night we stayed there, there was no fresh fruit at breakfast.
Excellent location, superb food/dining. Good, helpful staff. Good value for money
Lousy WiFi - worst/slowest have ever experienced- used Burger Kings in hotel lobby! Did not like paying for use of minibar or safe - this was not made clear on website.
