“Great hotel, lovely staff.”

“We arrived in Malta and due to a problem with our initial hotel we were able go get the last room here. The hotel is new and all amenities are what you would expect. It's located just off The Strand so there are plenty of places to eat and drink within a short walk. You have use of the roof top pool in the sister hotel around the corner. All buildings are bricks and mortar, what makes a hotel are the staff, and the staff at the Azur are 10/10, friendly and helpful. If you have booked here....good choice, if you are looking for somewhere to stay I can recommend the Azur with confidence that you won't be disappointed.”

“The hotel's location is good - a lot of cafes and shops in a walking distance, bus stops, ferry to Valletta and excursion boats nearby. Everything in the hotel is new and clean and looks the same as in the photos on the internet. The staff are friendly and helpful. We requested early check in, and as soon as the room was ready, we moved in. In the underground floor there are free lockers where you can leave bags while waiting for check-in or departure, and there is a shower and toilet there, too (immaculately clean).”

“Brand new hotel”

Jul 5, 2019 Haydn185

“Stayed for a few nights while on a business trip. It is for sure brand new the ceiling of my room had not been skimmed nor an area on my balcony. However it didn't matter at all, clean and tidy rooms, a nice simple and straight forward hotel. The public areas are lacking with a small hotel bar in reception area, however I doubt many people come to Malta to sit in the hotel bar rather to get out and enjoy the local restaurants and bars. I had seen a few negative remarks but it's new it's high season, yes building work is happening around but that's all about demand and space. Would I use it again yes for sure location works well if your are on a working trip or a holiday.”

"Pleasant vacation"

Jul 9, 2019 athosp560

“Modern hotel, overall clean, spacious lobby with bar, friendly staff although little Italian and nothing. Good breakfast although not very varied, for those who love the sweet there are empty croissants that can be filled with jams and spreadable chocolate. In the hotel there is the possibility to also use a free swimming pool on the top floor which is located in the hotel next door .... just ask in reception.”

“We were in this hotel for 4 nights and the stay was absolutely good, the room is super clean, thanks to Kim. The room has a little view over the bayview. The Breakfast has a big selection on food and drinks. The staff in the breakfast are so welcoming. The position is very good, a few minutes by walk to Sliema/Sliema Ferry, there are a lot of restaurants just a round the corner so many choices and there are also a few mini markets nearby. We will be back in this hotel. Thank you everyone!”

"Good location, new!"

Aug 27, 2019 jessikasf

“The Hotel is very well located, is newly renovated, very comfortable beds and attention by very good staff, to highlight something against breakfast is very repetitive and little variety, otherwise a good quality hotel price.”

Andrea Ferrario

“The location is strategic! Nearby are numerous restaurants and pubs. Furthermore the hotel is 10 minutes walk from the bus and ferry terminals The structure has been recently renovated The cleanliness of all the rooms is excellent The rooms are cozy, spacious and equipped with many comforts. The dark curtains mean that light does not enter the rooms early in the morning. Breakfast, both Italian and English, is varied and plentiful. The buffet is constantly replenished. The waiters are quick to clear the tables. The Wi-Fi connection is excellent“



“The location is great to be able to take the city buses at the first stops and avoid standing (which is very important). The structure is very pretty and the staff are kind and always smiling.”


“Well, the hotel has its own parking garage which has to be reserved for a fee, you do not have to worry about car park which is very difficult in this area. Plus: great location and easy access to public transport, restaurants, bars and shops.”

“A Pleasant stay”

Jul 22, 2019 VaishKesh

“We arrived at this hotel and felt welcomed straight away. Check in was pretty straight forward and the layout was explained to us on arrival. When entering our room we noticed the bathroom did not have a lock, we alerted the reception staff who said we will be contacted in the morning when guests check out and show us an alternative. As promised, we were called and shown a room but this didn’t have a lock on the door too so we decided to stick to our room. The staff during breakfast were extremely polite and helpful, they deserve to be credited. Despite how busy they were, they never failed to greet us with a huge smile and a good morning. Overall the food was okay, but service was incredible. The two male staff at reception on Friday evening helped us plan our Sunday and gave us a few suggestions. The female staff at reception during the weekdays were not as helpful on some occasions and their facial expression seemed like everything was extra effort for them such as called a taxi for us. However, they did provide late check out and did cater to our needs. Overall, it was a pleasant stay and I would recommend the hotel.”

“Welcoming friendly hotel in a great location”

Jul 10, 2019 andysuedarlington

“Had a wonderful two week stay in a sea view room. This hotel is listed as a 3 star and it certainly delivers on that and more. Staff are friendly, check in was efficient. Our room, although a little bit dated was perfectly comfortable. The views from the 6th floor are outstanding. The only niggle with the room was that the air con struggled to keep us cool in the night. But overall it just managed. Breakfast was good, plenty of choice and the quality was very good. We did get a bit bored with it by the end of the fortnight, but overall very pleased with it. The breakfast room was a bit chaotic at peak times and there is advice to point out when it will be quieter. Breakfast staff work really hard and are always polite and helpful. We were really happy with the facilities. The pool area was good and there was not so much of a rush to nab a sunbed in the morning. Welcomed the use of the gym but the equipment, although functional, is very tired. You do have to get used to the lifts, a little patience required. There is a very handy desk in reception where you can book all trips, cars, taxis etc and they give good advice for getting around. Location is brilliant, ferry to Valletta close by and bus stop right outside. Plus there are loads of good bars and eating places within walking distance. Lovely walks along the coast towards St Julians too. Overall we enjoyed our stay so much we will be booking again next year. Really pleased with the hotel.”

“Great location, clean rooms, nice pool area and amazing staff!”

Jul 4, 2019 AstridSvensson

“The hotel is located perfectly for traveling around in Malta to it's best places like comino for example. The room was a bit small and maybe not the most modern, but it was cosy and the most important thing, it was always clean! The rooftop was amazing, the view, the bar and the pools. Loved it! But the best thing was the staff! A man that worked in the breakfast area was always on the best mood, joking and smiling. Me and my friend loved that! It made us smile in the morning even when we were super tired! The hotel manager and his staff was also AMAZING when I got sick. They took great care of me, I'am honestly speechless for their kindness! This people could also work in a medical setting as well as in a hotel! They made me feel so safe! I highly recommend Bayview hotel if you are going to Malta!”

“I liked that the hotel location was great. There was air conditioner around the clock, which was a great help on a hot day.”


“Upon departure, an unsolicited breakfast was ready. Staff friendly.”


Jun 14, 2019 Hector

“We spent 4 days here and it is ideally placed to visit Valetta and the island of Malta in general. We traveled by bus during our trip and several lines passed near the hotel. The staff was very pleasant and we were very well received. We recommend this hotel!”

We never ate lunch in Malta since we had eaten excessively and in the morning in the hotel !! 3. Staff = 11 / 10. guardian angels for visitors !!! 4. Area = 10/10. By the sea. Next to the market. 5. Balances = 9.5 / 10 ./// Overall the hotel was an excellent choice. It has been a great help to have a wonderful holiday in Malta. The light shows the view we had every day from the room.”

“Excellent staff, very pleasant stay”

Aug 9, 2019 Kyrankuijpers

“Staff: receptionists were super friendly and helpful. When our taxi was late, they personally called the company to ask what was up. On the day of departure, thanks to their helpfulness we could still have a swim on their rooftop pool, shower and change before leaving for the airport. Room: big, clean, wonderful view. Breakfast: adequate Location: perfect! Ferries and restaurants around the corner. Also a bar in front of hotel were you could still enjoy cold beers at 11pm at the end of the day.”

"Hotel in a strategic position"

Jul 25, 2019 teta63, Cosenza, Italy

“in front of the hotel there are all land and sea connections to the island. the staff is super friendly and helpful. the rooms are large and comfortable (maybe a little maintenance would not hurt). although on the fourth floor, perhaps because it was a room facing the street, a bit noisy. average breakfast”

"Great hotel in a perfect location"

Jun 30, 2019 Portmann33

“The location of the hotel is great, right on the beach promenade, public transport, ships, restaurants, everything nearby. The staff in the hotel is very nice, very helpful and courteous, they give helpful tips for excursions and happy to help with any questions. We will definitely go back to this hotel. Thanks again.”

"A superb family holiday!"

May 30, 2019 jsaintse

“We stayed at the Sliema Hotel by St Hotel from 25/05 to 29/05; we had a family room sea view on the 6th floor facing Valletta! a beautiful view ! The room was large and clean . It is a comfortable hotel facing the port of Sliema so in front of the taxis boats for Valletta and those for excursions around the island; bus lines are also down the hotel.The restaurants are within walking distance of about 5 minutes. We were in breakfasts and this one was more than enough: sweet with croissants jams fruit salad buns of all kinds and salty bacon with scrambled eggs sausages; very good coffee / cappuccino / tea etc .. A very big thank you especially to George who has been able to be present throughout these 5 days; very professional, always smiling, attentive, a great help, always a kind word to my 2 boys of 4 and 9 years old Louis and Joan; the stay would not have been the same without him; thank you also to Dijana for his kindness. Our stay was fantastic!”

“Outstanding service”


“I would recomend this hotel to anyone who is looking for perfect location, spacious rooms with a great view that are affordable to most of the people. Hotel staff are super friendly and helpfull, and people such as receptionist Nedjo are the reason how the hotel from being great can become excellent!”

“My wife and I stayed in room 206 from 15 May for one week we had a wonderful time at this superbly run hotel. A special mention and thanks to George who always made himself available should we need any advice or assistance.

Steve and Debbie.”

“Blubay apartments”

Stuart H

“Just returned home from these apartments. What can I say spacious spotless and central location. Everything you needed and also had the use of the pool top terrace on the bluebay hotel right on the harbour front over looking Valletta.”

"Top service"

Jul 27, 2019 fabien7700

Following a complicated personal situation we had a huge chance that Mrs. Caroline Oliver could listen to us and guide us for the rest of our holidays. I thank her very much. It is this type of contact that makes you feel good in a hotel !!! Bravo !!!

"Enjoyed our stay here”

Sharon T

“I had read the reviews of other people who had stayed here, and was worried that we were going to arrive to an "Inbetweeners" scene. Not the case at all. We arrive around midday, and couldn't check in until about 2pm. We left our cases in the luggage room, and ventured out until that time. I already knew that we might not be in the same building as to where you check-in, and as we booked a 3 bedroom apartment this was our case. The receptionist explained to us that we could still use the pool which is on the roof of the check-in building and also the pool and restaurant at their sister hotel, The Bayview not far from there. We were then taken by 2 male members of staff, who helped us with our cases, to the building we were staying in. It was literally a U-turn style walk between the 2, 3 mins away if that. It isn't situated on the main promenade front, but on a typical traditional Malta street, which I loved. We were on the 2nd floor, which was easily accessible up the stairs. But obviously on this occasion we used the lift. Coming out of the lift, it does look like they are probably doing some sort of work there (possibly a new lift shaft), but I can honestly say we were never bothered by any noise from it, whatever is being done. When we went into our apartment I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised by what we had. It was really big and clean. Slight wearing on the sofa, but to honest, who cares, we weren't there to lounge in the apartment for 12 days. 3 bedrooms, all with air-con that worked. Clean, freshly made beds and 2 sets of clean towels to each bedroom. Lots of drawer and wardrobe space (although long dresses couldn't be hung up due to how the hanging rails were situated. Just laid those out on the bed si as not to crease). The cleaners came in everyday and straightened up the beds, emptied the bins and left fresh towels. We had left a couple of glasses in the sink the 1st morning, they even washed those up for us. Sheets were changed on the beds being used on a regular basis. The cleaning ladies always smiled and said hello if we were around when they were on our floor. A room safe was available at a small cost. I paid €35 for the whole 11 night stay, of which there was a €10 refundable deposit. Our apartment had 2 bathrooms, one of which was an ensuite in what was my sons bedroom. Apart from some neighbours that forgot they weren't at home when they came in at night, me and my children thouroughly enjoyed our stay there. When I booked, all I wanted was somewhere to put our belongings,somewhere to sleep and maybe eat breakfast in. We got that but it did also feel like our home away from home while we were there. I would definately recommend Blubay to anyone who wanted the same sort of thing as us.”

“These apartments are wonderfully clean and have everything you need, even an iron and ironing board, and a fully functioning kitchen area, not that I used it, very modern, loved it. We would definitely go again.”

“Perfect! - Wonderful Place - especially for large groups”

Jun 25, 2019 Wolfgang H

“We came to Bluebay Apartments with over 60 people - kids, teens and adults and found the perfect place! Perfect rooms, excellent facilities and more-than-perfect support by Marouska. We had already many trips around Europe and knowing the okay-prices of Bluebay, we had some critical expectations, but no worries - all was much, much better, than expected. The rooms are spacious and well arranged, the breakfast was almost custom-made according our wishes, great location, fantastic service and the facilities are just perfect, ... and then, there is Marouska, whatever question, she had the answer and solution - many thanks for all your great help and support; you are wonderful!”
