Hilton Malta Review – was this a perfect hotel stay?

Posted on October 28, 2019 by in Destinations & Inspiration, HHonors, Hilton Honors, Hilton Hotels

The Hilton Malta is located in a new development in St Julian Bay. However, the hotel isn’t particularly new.

Check-in was friendly and my Diamond status was mentioned and the benefits explained. So far so good. Also, the duty manager came by to greet me by name. He explained my upgrade to a suite is ‘based on my prior stay’.

I had never been to the property but the team likely read my internal Hilton Honors profile. Well, I would not dispute that and was on my way to my suite.

Indeed the Deluxe Suite was enormous with beautiful ocean views. I felt it was almost ‘too big’ with a living room that was bigger than some suites I stayed before.

Strangely the shower was tiny affair (the bathtub was huge though) and I found it painfully difficult to get into the shower cabin.

The Internet signal was strong and the speed tests would have 20Mbit or better.

The hotel has a rather large pool area with a gravel bottom around it. I’m not sure why you’d choose that but it made for a rather uncomfortable feeling on your feet. The hotel seemed rather full when I stayed but the pool area seemed not unnecessarily crowded.

The whole building is masterfully renovated (at least it looks that way) – I loved how stylish the interior looked.

I made my way to the Executive Lounge on the 9th floor. It comes in modern bright colors and coffee/ evening canapés and breakfast service had a number of good quality items that I appreciated. There were a number of good wines, champagne on offer as well. The staff at the Executive Lounge were exceedingly friendly and greeted most guests by name and seemed genuinely concerned about their well being.

My suite had no direct rooms above but likely a storage area. I heard furniture being moved during the evening hours making it hard to sleep. I called the front desk and they apparently found the source and it was quiet after that.

In sum, I think that was a pretty perfect stay. The staff was competent and friendly. The Executive Lounge was as good as it gets in the Hilton system. The suite was more the size of a 3 bedroom apartment than a hotel room. The whole hotel seemed luxurious and well planned. It was pretty close to perfect!
