    Enjoyed our stay at The Waterfront Hotel. Rooms were spacious and clean. Only concern we had was cleaning staff persistently knocking on our room door when we had the do not disturb sign hanging on the door knob and cleaning staff changing towels when we didn’t request that they be changed. Other than that, our stay was wonderful.

    The location was great but as pointed out in other posts it’s noisy to sit out on balcony.

    Absolutely lovely property in a fantastic location. Very modern, clean, and convenient. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was waterfront and the view was beyond words. Bed was very comfy and the room big. Great air conditioning. The buffet breakfast and dinners offered a great selection of food. Very good quality. The location of this hotel was tops. The On/Off Bus is just steps away and the harbor ferry a short walk. I would definitely recommend this hotel and hope to return to it again.

    The hotel has been recently renovated. Very high 4 star. Would have preferred a room with a balcony like the picture showed, but happy overall. Great breakfast included. Close to lots of things to do.

    Misleading description, there is no outdoor pool!

    The information and photos on-line are very misleading! The first picture shows a swimming pool next to the sea and the description says the hotel has an indoor pool and a seasonal outdoor pool. There is a very small indoor pool enclosed in a small hot room. THERE IS NO OUTDOOR POOL and there is a E10 deposit on pool towels. For the outdoor pool the hotel provides transport to a beach club the other side of Sliema. This place is horrible, very crowded with music so loud it makes your ears bleed and full of partying young people and huge bouncers clearly expecting trouble. The room information says "Shower/tub combination" but there was only a shower. The bed was very hard and extremely uncomfortable. A notice in the bathroom warns you not to drink the tap water but no bottled water is provided even though a kettle and sachets of tea and coffee are. Currently across the road (a very busy dual carriage way) directly opposite the hotel right next to the sea there is a large building site where some sort of beach club is being very slowly constructed.

    Short but relaxing stay.

    The staff was very welcoming and accomodating. Our TV remove was not working and instantaneously it was changed without any delay. What worried us a little bit was the use of gloves during the serving of breakfast and dinner, because this does not allow practicing of frequent hand hygiene. Apart from that, it was a nice experience and will surely return.

    excellent hotel

    Thank you to al the staff for their kindness and help and sorry for my missunderstanding regarding the room. We had been upgraded to a suite which was absolutely fantastic and we did enjoy the use of the pool and the terrace. I will for sure come back, absolutely geourgeous breakfast and excellent dinner in the lobby bar.

    When we booked the hotel we did not know the immediately across the road was a large building site which was active from 0730 until late very day. No rest or peace.
