Valletta is the smallest capital city in the European Union which means that everything in the city is a short walk from the hotel. You can walk to the famous sites of Valletta such as St John’s Co-Cathedral or the National War Museum. There are many bars and restaurants lining the streets of Valletta which you can walk to. The hotel also hosts its own bar and restaurant called the Cheeky Monkey Gastropub. Valletta can get hot in the summer so you’ll appreciate the air conditioning in the Cheeky Monkey!
It’s easy to get to the hotel from other parts of Malta. You can take a taxi to the front door. Other options are to arrive in Valletta at the bus station or the ferry port. There are 2 ferry ports, one goes to Sliema and the other goes to Pozzallo, Sicily.
Whilst checking in you’ll be able to appreciate the stunning interior of the hotel. I’d also recommend telling the friendly check in staff why you are in town so they can make suggestions for your stay. The staff speak perfect English as they do everywhere in Malta.
The bed is super comfy which means you are guaranteed a good night sleep. The flat screen TV is connected to the internet so you’re able to watch movies and YouTube. You can connect the TV with your phone for maximum control. Something unique about the room is the telephone. It’s an old fashioned telephone like they used to have in the 60’s. I called down to reception to ask what time it was just so I could use the retro telephone. There is a fridge and minibar available and coffee in the room is made through a Nescafe Dolce Gusto machine.
The bathroom comes with a good selection of complimentary toiletries. You have two options with the shower, a portable shower head or a rainfall shower. There are bathrobes in the room, you are here to relax!
The Rooftop View
The Carmelite Church dome is very difficult to photograph whilst walking through Valletta. One location you are guaranteed a good view of the dome from is the hotel rooftop. From the rooftop you get a unique angle of the church dome with views of the harbor and Sliema behind. Another good location to photograph the church dome from is on the ferry to / from Sliema.
There are guest elevators in the hotel. I would recommend taking the stairs at least once to appreciate the hotel interior. You’ll find artwork, paintings, chandeliers as well as aerial views of the stunning hotel reception. For Instagram lovers you can take some very unique shots around the hotel.
For those who are visiting Valletta on business the hotel offers a couple of meeting rooms. The rooms are private with air conditioning, power sockets and WiFi. You can order refreshments from the Cheeky Monkey restaurant throughout your meeting.
A complimentary breakfast is available every morning in the Cheeky Monkey Gastropub. Something unique about the breakfast is that the bread is baked onsite every morning. You couldn’t get fresher bread and because I was first for breakfast it was still warm. As well as the breakfast buffet you can also enjoy unlimited coffee from the bars own coffee machine.
The Gastropub is open all day, it makes the perfect place to escape the Valletta heat and enjoy a cold beer.
