    Fabulous

    I lost my wallet on the first night and Karl the manager spent the following morning ringing the taxi man to try and get it back for me (which he did). He went above and beyond the call of duty and I was very impressed.

    Stayed for 10 nights and sheets only changed after 7 or 8! And sink in bathroom never cleaned.

    Superb

    The Carlton is a lovely Hotel. We had a double room with a balcony facing the beach. the location is the best clase to Valleta and Paceville for the nightlife, but to have a small beach just opposite is Lovely! in summer that's is a must! the breakfast is ok, but the view that you have from it is great. i'd recommend the Carlton!

    The hotel is near some points of interest.

    The hotel has been reconstructed and the reception area is very nice. However, looks like the reconstruction works have been finished at a rush in the rooms. The materials and furniture are nice and new but some parts look like having 50 years old, like the doors, the threshold and the lift. The walls painting is stained, the wc had humidity on the ceiling and the flush had a leakage to the floor. There is only one lift for a 7 floor builnding with about 10 room in each, what makes the wait for the lift very long or the use of the stairs more eficient. The cars are parked on the streets nearby, what in this case is a problem because it is an area with lots of traffic (at least in july). Resuming, the base ideas of the reconstruction are good but the finishing is poor.

    Excellent low cost Hotel. What a fantastic view we had from sea view room of the bay! Very clean. Small rooftop pool and loungers. Nearer to St Julians than Sliema. Really pleasant location considering on main st julian to Sliema road. Didnt eat breakfast at Hotel so cannot comment on food. Would definately stay at the Carlton Hotel again

    Best thing was they changed my room because the original one was noisy.

    Building in the day. Not good if you're out all night!!

    Excellent location. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the breakfast good and plentiful.

    The hotel and rooms are shabby. Our bathroom door closing mechanism was taped over so the door did not latch. There were recent plaster repairs on the wall that had not been finished and painted. As is it's about a 1 1/2 star hotel.

    Very good

    Nice clean room, comfortable bed and large clean bathroom. View from breakfast room is rather splendid.

    False fire alarms in the middle of the night. Slightly bizarre method of room key 'control' - hand the key at reception and get a piece of paper which you exchange on return. Ok if both occupants going in/out together not so good if you are going in/out independently!

    Fabulous

    The hotel is a budget hotel, and should be judged as such. The staff couldn't have been more friendly. The room was basic but comfy enough. We chose a room with a sea view and were more than rewarded. There was a balcony, which from early on was in the shade so it was very comfortable. The breakfast room was on the 6th floor & although it was a bit disorganised, the tables did not get cleared quickly. From the brreakfast room there were great views over the bay. The breakfasts were adequate. The hotel is surrounded by restaurants. The small beach in front of the hotel was brilliant. We had a good holiday and the hotel was extremely good value. Air con. Was fine.

    The bathroom was clean but there were signs of damp. Breakfast room a bit disorganisedthe, tables did not get cleared quickly. It lacked a kettle in the room.(We took our own). The lift was quite small, I think that anyone with a disability would have a problem.

    Good

    The position of the hotel is very good in front of the sea and the bus stops are just beside the hotel. The small pool on the roof is also very nice. The price is worth it if you don't come by car.

    The hotel is definitely not a 3 star but what I call a pension. Even though it has been renovated the finishes are really bad. There was no bath/shower foam etc; there usually is in a 3 star hotel. The breafast was poor even though is was enough. Pay attention there is no hotel parking even if it says so on booking. I had to go round for an hour before I found the parking space on a street nearby.

    Superb

    We used the hotel to sleep, so it was important that the rooms were clean and they were.

    The breakfast is bad. The coffee is gross and the choice of products and quality of bread are mediocre. Please invest more time in this aspect of your service.

    Very good

    Cheap, very clean, basic hotel. Very good location and very helpful staff. Organised cab from airport for us. Nothing outstanding but no complaints at all, you get what you pay for. Breakfast included and great view of bay from dining area.

    No kettle or hairdryer in room

    Fabulous

    Can absolutely recommend this hotel, it is beautifuly located near the seaside, friendly staff. Breakfast good, excellent balance between the price we paid and what we expected. The hotel is in front of a very busy street but there is practically no noise from traffic when you close the balcony doors during the evening and night. They are still refurbishing it. Bathroom nicely refurbished, spacious and practical. Cleaners very friendly, our room looked every day like new so they did their job well!

    Fire alarm went of very early on two mornings (betw 6 and 6;30am) which woke up the whole family. No further comment received from the hotel staff on this event. The possibility to have breakfast (betw 7.30- 9.30am) should be extended by an hour. Lift did not work during the last 36 hours of our stay, it kept us fit but it was obviously very unconfortable during our departure. On the morning of our departure we got an incorrect wake-up call at 3.30am (we had to leave at 6am). The receiptionist apologised but however claimed that he must have reached the correct roomnumber cause these visitors indeed left (but it was us who answered the phone). There is obviously something wrong with the phone system.

    Good

    The location is perfect and internet works well.

    The hotel was under renovation work. My room was not totally finished yet when I have arrived. I think that they should close the hotel until they finish the renovation as it is just too noisy for hostess to have it open.
