This clean-lined boutique hotel behind a historic exterior is a sophisticated base in central Valletta.
Quietly tucked away on a side street, this sophisticated hotel is just minutes from Valletta’s elaborate cathedrals and people-watching piazzas. Its rooms are hidden behind the elegant doorway of a classic stone building, where the space opens up to a lobby with a high ceiling and a small atrium that forms the centre of this modern retreat.
The hotel is surprisingly well equipped for its size. There’s a small gym and a magical hideaway heated pool hidden underground in a cave. The restaurant, L’Artiglio, has made a name for itself by serving plates that are packed with creative flair. The seasonal concept lends itself to a brilliant variety so it’s worth booking a table for lunch or dinner on top of the included à la carte breakfast.
The clean lines, grey geometric patterns and functional furniture makes each room feel light and uncluttered. Each room can be arranged with a double bed or twin beds and has a modern en suite with walk-in shower. Double Rooms and Large Double Rooms look into the atrium and differ only in size; opt for the large if you need a little extra space for comfort. Double Balcony Rooms are the same size as Double Rooms with the addition of a French balcony looking down onto views of the narrow side street for added atmosphere. For a classic stay, upgrade to a Superior Room for a good-sized room complete with a Maltese balcony – an enclosed balcony that juts out from the hotel façade.
On a quiet side street, ten minutes’ walk from Valletta’s attractions and historic sites
