Top Valletta Hotels For Your Stay in Malta

Valletta. The so-called city “built by gentlemen, for gentlemen”. If that sounds like the kind of place you can see your next corporate event, we implore you to read on.

After reading this list, you’ll see that things change in time. But the best things tend to stay the same. Case in point: the timeless class of Valletta hotels.

And it’s about more than just a nice place to rest your head. Malta is a loveable place. It’s a little island in between big and busy countries. The weather, the food, the people, and the pace of life are a flight away friends!

Palais Le Brun

Classic and luxurious hotel room with warm earth coloursParis Le Brun via palaislebrun

Palais Le Brun offers you the chance to “live like a knight of St. John”. Yeah, the knights of St. John wished they could live like this, with flat-screen TVs and luxury bathrooms in every room! They have duplex suites with balcony hot tubs and room each feels like you’re in the height of the regency era.

The dining rooms are unique; art hangs from the walls, and the walls and ceilings are made of original Malta stone. You’ll feel like you’re re-enacting a scene from history rather than conducting a 21st-century lunch.

The surprise touch is the full English and Irish breakfast that will prepare you for your busy day. After that, our best advice is to take your morning coffee or an aperitif on the terrace. If the weather is in your favour, take a dip while you’re at it.

If you’re looking for Malta accommodation that is nostalgic and atmospheric, Palais Le Brun is worth your consideration.

Domus Zamittello

Domus Zamittello has been operating under its current management for more than three years. Their focus is excellent customer service, and they told us receiving feedback from happy guests is the greatest joy in their work. They’re the number one hotel in Valetta, so the evidence speaks for itself!

What makes Domus Zamittello unique is its history and grandeur. The rooms reflect that with panache. They have 21 rooms with six suites spread out over four floors – all decorated in a classical style, with classy touches like embroidered towels.

Of course, you’ll have all the modern amenities like WiFi, LCD TV’s, underfloor heating, and well-stocked minibars. But none of it ruins the impression that you’re starring in a period film.

The stunning views will top off your experience at Domus Zamittello. You and your guests can gaze over the ruins of the old Royal Malta Opera House, the formidable and iconic city gate, and Republic Street. All the while, the hills of Malta are in the background for your pleasure.

The Cumberland Hotel

The Cumberland Hotel is a renovated townhouse with personality and a personal touch. It’s cosy with just 22 rooms. As a guest, you’ll be spoilt; each room comes with its own terrace and a luxurious bathroom.

The Breakfast Room is like eating inside a castle — the original Malta stone is almost as wondrous as the Á La Carte breakfast.

The rooftop has a splendid bar and offers excellent views of the Harbour and the Valletta area. And the best bit of all… the jacuzzi!

Ursulino Valletta

Ursulino Valletta is a boutique hotel that was once a family townhouse. Originally built in the architectural tradition of the city, it has been respectfully renovated to embody the best concepts of modern luxury.

Ursulino courts the fine line between 5-star standards and the quaint, personal touch of a family business. Their concierge service will move mountains for you – in the hotel and outside it – so your trip to Malta is everything it can be.

We know you’ll love the 360° views from their rooftop terrace. The pride of place is the Valletta skyline and The Grand Harbour. Their attentive staff are ready to look after your every whim, bringing you breakfast, snacks, and drinks at your pleasure as you enjoy the scenes.

Their art collection is carefully curated to show guests the very best of Maltese art. For example, their C.S Lawrence collection depicts everyday local life with an air of magical realism.

La Falconeria

La Falconeria noticed how Valletta has transformed from a historical monument into a modern and vibrant European city. And they decided to rebel. It’s a city they’re proud to represent.

You can eat at the in-house restaurant L’Artiglio for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu is seasonable, and their team of highly skilled chefs handpick the produce.

The bar is cool because it’s open to passers-by too. A lot of hotel bars can be sad and hidden away affairs, but they’ve built something delightful at La Falconeria. The tiles are mesmerising, and the decor has a futuristic look about it. It has an impressive selection of spirits too and is open almost 24hrs. You can even go for coffee in the morning!

Casa Ellul

Casa Ellul is literally the Casa of the Ellul family. Converting their family home into a luxury boutique hotel was a passion project, and it shows.

Family businesses are wholesome as a rule. And Casa Ellul is homely to the extreme; we think it’s one of the most charming hotels in Valletta.

It’s a small hotel with only nine suites. Each room is meticulously designed with its own theme, and the huge fortress beds are sure to entice you.

If you do feel compelled to leave your suite, make it a short trip. The in-house spa has an extensive range of services such as massages, facial treatments and health treatments. You will leave Casa Ellul like you’ve never heard of a worry before.
