Review: Hilton Malta

Pro: Fantastic Views.
Con: Can’t think of any.

View from the Executive Lounge, Hilton Malta

As a Hilton fan, it was easy choosing which hotel I’d stay at in Malta since there’s only one Hilton property on the island. The pictures rooms and their amenities on the hotel’s website were amazing so I was really excited for this stay.

Hilton Malta Complimentary Dinner

When I checked in around 2 pm, the receptionist informed us that I would get a complimentary dinner since I did not get a room upgrade. I actually checked the available room for our stay on the mobile app and the only one they had was the Panorama Suite for 666 €, and which I think they are not supposed to give to us.

For dinner, there was a choice between Ala Carte and buffet and I chose the latter. The buffet had an extensive offering and I really enjoyed it especially as our waiter, Bastien really took care of us so well. 

Hilton Malta Swimming Pool & Fitness Center

Hilton Malta Vista Lobby Lounge

From this restaurant, you get amazing views of the hotel pool and the Mediterranean Sea 👍

Bottom Line 

The room I got was so nice, spacious and offered fantastic views of the sea and the Marina from the terrace. The staff were all very helpful and welcoming especially Miryam and Bastien. The complimentary dinner I got was a nice gesture since I knew that the hotel was really full and that getting a room upgrade was difficult. The food offering both from the Executive Lounge and the main restaurant was extensive and I personally loved their Local Specialties section in the buffet as well as the Iced Coffee 👍

Taking a taxi or public bus to go to the city is easy as well. Lastly, the outdoor pool was simply gorgeous. Overall, I really enjoyed our stay at the Hilton Malta and with its lovely rooms, wonderful staff and first-class facilities, there is no doubt that this is the best hotel on the island 😉

Here’s a video tour of my lovely room with fantastic sea views and the Marina 😍
