Amy Adejokun Section editor

There's a great deal of competition between Malta's more upmarket hotels, which are mainly concentrated in the St. Julian's area. Indeed, each new opening is precisely positioned and offers exclusive services and facilities. The latest in this line of 5 star establishments is The Palace, which has a decidedly urban feel to it. The hotel is located close to the centre of the village of Sliema, on a quiet little street with a large number of shops in the immediate vicinity. It makes up for its lack of seaside appeal with its superb level of services and facilities, both in its guest rooms and with regards to its sports and relaxation facilities. If you're a fan of stylish modern surroundings, then this is the place for you!

    Location 7.93 /10

    The Palace stands in a quiet but popular neighbourhood close to the centre of Sliema, between Valletta and St. Julian's. There are various merchant booths, restaurants, and bars in the immediate vicinity, and the heart of the action, in the port of Marsamxett, is just down by the seafront. The airport, meanwhile, is around a 20 minute car ride, whilst a 10 minute walk will take you to the heart of St. Julian's nightlife. The bus into Valletta and its central bus station also stops just next to the hotel.

    Accommodation 8.70 /10

    The 160 guest rooms here are very spacious, with an average floor area of over 30m², irrespective of the category of room you choose. In terms of decor, the rooms are done out in the same modern and stylish fashion as the lobby. Some of them have even been designed with original elements of comfort. In a crazy little twist, there are also four Designer Suites, each with its own particular theme (such as the Music Room, which comes complete with musical instruments). The materials that have been used are of a high quality, the rooms are bright, and the amenities faultless. The only drawback is that you have to pay to use the Wi-Fi. All of the rooms throughout the hotel's 8 floors have a balcony where you can enjoy the views across the rooftops of the city, but you might want to book a room from the 3rd floor up if you want to be able to see the sea in the distance. The well-designed bathrooms, meanwhile, are bright, clean, and spacious, some opening directly onto the bedrooms. Do bear in mind that although the hotel has decided to target a particularly exclusive niche, it doesn't, in doing so, exclude families. Thanks to their spacious dimensions, one guest room can accommodate up to 4 people and some even have adjoining doors. You might also be interested to know that the hotel has 2 rooms designed to accommodate guests with reduced mobility.

    Overview 8.95 /10

    Although the 8 stories making up the façade of the hotel, which opened in 2008, are rather inconspicuous, inside, the hotel simply oozes charm, and with great ease too. It's not called The Palace for nothing! This establishment is truly a modern temple, with stylish decorative touches throughout, from the electric blue reception desk, chandelier with feathers, and armchairs, to the aquatic ambience of the lobby. Marketed as one of the few 5 star 'city hotels', The Palace offers a plethora of services and facilities to compensate for not being close to the sea. The hotel's rooftop is a prime example of this, its huge surface area devoted entirely to a wonderful Asian restaurant, complete with draped fabrics swaying in the breeze. Just alongside you'll find the beautiful and very spacious infinity pool, affording panoramic views across the rooftops of the city with the sea on the horizon. On the top floor you'll find another well-appointed and comprehensive spa with a gym and a beautiful and bright indoor pool. Do bear in mind though, these facilities are shared with the guests staying at the neighbouring Victoria hotel.

    Food and drink 8.20 /10

    An upmarket establishment such as this cannot afford to slip up when it comes to cuisine....or choice, for that matter. This being the case, guests can choose from one of 3 restaurants, all catering to different tastes. The main restaurant, The Tabloid, is located on the ground floor and consists of a beautiful green-tiled room. Breakfast and dinner are served here as a buffet only, with a very large selection of high quality Mediterranean-inspired dishes on offer. A small selection of snacks and light meals are available from the hotel bar, the 'Talk of Town Café', throughout the day. When night falls, head to the Temptasia on the rooftop, which offers spectacular panoramic views and a fine selection of Asian dishes. The decor is particularly tasteful as well, with draped fabrics swaying in the breeze and a series of private lounges.

    To know

    The hotel is readily geared-up towards a business clientele and is particularly popular during the busy conference seasons, in spring and autumn.
