We arrived in Malta to find out our reservation had been cancelled by the company we had booked through with out informing us. The manager at imperial hotel was a life saver and found us acomadition in the hotel for the 10 days we were here in malta. He was extremely accommodating and extremely helpful.

Not too exciting all around. Rooms are just okay, breakfast is boring. It might have been special at the end of the last century, but it is only worthy of 2 and a half stars. A bit shopworn! Front desk staff very nice.

Our 2nd visit here and very satisfied with our stay. Lovely room, towels changed daily and bedding changed regularly. Slight musty odour in one wardrobe. Looking out onto garden. Shampoo and soap provided, toilet rolls kept stocked up. Tea/coffee facilities. Excellent A/C unit on wall. We were on B&B basis, can't comment on dinners but breakfast was okay, nothing special....

At the time being we are accepting reservations for early next year since no building permits have been issued since this is a very sensitive building being over 150 years old, possibly the first building in Sliema but definitely the oldest serving hotel in...

Had a lovely time in this gem of a place. Very central to ferries, shops & buses The staff were great. The reservations manager was particularly helpful when I had mistakenly booked a single person room instead of double/two people Will definitely return
