AX The Palace


This lavish hotel has a fantastic central location in Sliema.

AX The Palace is an elegant hotel in the heart of Sliema, with intricate chandeliers and plenty of art adorning the walls. Its superb location means you’re just a few minutes’ walk from both the seafront and the main shopping centre.

Mornings start with a wholesome breakfast at The Tabloid. Then make your way up to the rooftop where sun loungers line the infinity pool with views of the city and the sea beyond. The pool bar is just steps away and the top floor of the hotel is entirely dedicated to leisure facilities including a spa and fitness room.

Head to the award-winning TemptAsian Restaurant for panoramic ninth-floor views and an innovative menu of Asian-fusion dishes with flavours from China, Japan and Singapore. The Tabloid buffet restaurant focuses on Mediterranean fine dining with tables for al fresco dining. The cool rooftop Lounge360 bar is a great place to unwind after a long day with comfortable seating to sink into and a seasonal bar for late summer nights.

The Deluxe Rooms have a balcony with city views while Superior Rooms are larger again and are on the higher floors of the hotel. For more space, go for one of the Junior Suites or the Designer Suites which each have a individual style and ambiance.
