I got an "upgrade" to a seaview room. I don't know what I was supposed to get but if this is an upgrade, that can't have been much. The room is an ok size but the furniture is old and very worn out, the bedside table is broken on one side, the blankets smell of cigarette smoke and since there...

The Primera is a clean hotel. Prior to my trip, I checked trip-advisor for info on the hotel. I can now correct some review errors. Before travelling, I emailed the hotel on foot of a blatantly negative review. I was reassured by the hotel that the rooms and bathrooms were spotless. I can confirm I found the room and bathroom...

We stayed here for a week in November when it was very quiet in Malta. The Hotel is a low cost budget hotel so you get what you pay for. The hotel was very empty with only a few guests staying here & the receptionist did tell us they where closing soon for winter & a refurbishment. Everything was in...

I think with the Primera you must remember what you have paid... Plus points - excellent maid service daily, decent shower, quiet rooms when considering the location and plenty of sun beds. Down side - the beds felt like they had survived both world wars, the aircon just made a rumbling noise but didnt produce hot or cold air and...

A very good budget hotel in a good location. It is kept clean and with friendly staff on hand. Breakfast was quite good But dont touch the evening meal, it is not very good, It is better to eat in one of the many restaurants that are close to the hotel.

Hotel, rooms, breakfast is good, but at Primera hotel is working the best hotel employee Mr. Nandor Stemler. Thank you very much for your help and care. You made our holidays in Malta nice and unforgettable. Best regards from Lithuania and thank you once again.

I had the misfortune of booking this hotel, blind, in May 13, I stayed for 7 nights half board. The food was in edible and I chose to eat out for every meal. How a chef could put that muck up on a hot plate is beyond me. On the taxi ridgeback to the airport I lost my I phone,...
