Luxury in the harbour city
Positioned on the eastern shore of Malta, with two stunning harbours sitting either side and gorgeous Baroque architecture within, it's no surprise that Valetta is considered rich in scenery, culture and history. Accommodation in Valetta complements the surrounds by treating you to luxurious interiors, great service and convenient amenities.
For ultimate luxury in the city, it's difficult to look past the award-winning Hotel Phoenicia and Excelsior Grand Hotel, which both possess a 5-star rating. Whether it's the tranquil gardens at Phoenicia or the historic 16th-Century architecture at Excelsior, there's something breathtaking around every corner.
Affordable accommodation in Valletta
Despite being a rather small capital city with limited accommodation options, Valletta still contains plenty of affordable establishments where you can stay. Spending a little less on a room will give you some spare cash for eating out at traditional restaurants, trying the delicious pastizzi or splurging on some cultural entertainment.
Affordable Valletta hotels include the Grand Harbour Hotel, which is blessed with views over the impressive Grand Harbour and is only a short stroll from the city's main shopping area. For 3-star options, you can stay at the Osborne Hotel or the Castille Hotel. Another popular place is the family-run British Hotel, situated along a quaint terraced street inside the city.
Get cosy in a B&B
If you're not fussed with staying in a hotel, you might be more inclined to enjoy the homely comforts and intimacy of a bed and breakfast (B&B). Many of Valletta's B&Bs are housed within historic buildings, drawing on the charm of the city to ensure you have a memorable stay.
The Palazzo Prince is one such B&B, housing you within the gorgeous confines of a 17th-Century Baroque palazzo, restored to ensure historic atmosphere coupled with modern conveniences. You can also stay at Lloyd House another palazzo, this time from the 18th Century, which contains three suites and a studio for relished intimacy.
