Located in the heart of Malta’s capital city, this 17th Century boutique hotel is a haven of style steeped in Valetta’s history.
Draped in the rich history of Valetta and laced with the legacy of the Knights of the Order of St. John, this luxurious 5* boutique hotel is a residence to behold. From sipping welcome drinks in the traditional service room overlooked by magnificent oil paintings to spotting the 400-year-old fountain as your eye wanders through to the elegant central courtyard, Rosselli is a spectacular piece of living history. The service and amenities do well to reflect the fact this was once the residence of a noble goldsmith with personal butlers upon arrival and a Michelin Star restaurant for refined dinners while the namesake’s contemporary perspective is clearly reflected in the eclectic fusion of styles running throughout the hotel.
Positioned towards the quieter end of Merchant Street, the surrounding area is full of old-world charm with narrow streets lined with quaint restaurants and coffee shops but close enough to the capital’s action should you wish a livelier soiree. Back at the hotel, take a revitalising dip in the rooftop plunge pool as you gaze across the urban skyline or lounge with your favourite signature cocktail on a sun lounger on the terrace. For those looking for something a little more exclusive, a selection of private day trips can be booked through Rosselli from chartered yacht trips with a Michelin chef onboard to guided excursions to the neighbouring island of Sicily. Guests are also invited to use the indulgent spa at Rosselli’s sister hotel The Palace which is just a short 15-minute drive across town.
Each of the rooms and suites at this baroque gem have been carefully designed with nods to the history of Don Pietro and his family at every turn. Named after the heir to the family’s fortunes, the Comfort Rooms exude a sense of youthful nobility and are filled with rich textures. A tribute to his wife, the Deluxe Rooms are a serene and elegant space with feminine undertones – the take home keepsake sewing box inspired by the tailors of Merchants Street is a thoughtful touch. Filled with mid-century flair we love the Junior Suite with its sumptuous mezzanine sleeping quarters overlooking the lavish lounge area and marble floors.
