        Individual guest reviews

        • Older travelers
          8.8

          From time to time bad water pressure, especially for the hot water

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          Beautiful palace in a magnificent location. Beautiful view.

          "Luxury" is just in the building itself (17th Century). Bedrooms are too small and lack good furniture. Basic amenities in the bathroom. Rooms don't correspond to pictures. Bed was not king size as advertised. Definitely overpriced.

        • Couple
          6.6

          The setting inside Mdina makes for a wonderful atmosphere and a quiet, refreshing night's rest.

          A slightly disorganized impresson, although front desk was very polite and helpful. Bathroom was not clean up to standard.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          Excellent location, helpful staff and superb restaurant. Centrally located for visiting the island but well away from the busy tourist areas.

          Sadly no pool.

        • Couple
          8.2

          We had the duplex room with living space on the upper part. It is a 500 years old palazzo built partly inside the city fortification, beside the bishop's palace, overlooking a small piazza surrounded by historic buildings. What else can I say for people going to stay in mdina, for its historic atmosphere. The room is clean, comfortable with cushions and has a lot of storage space.

          It turned to be just fine but the interior is a little bit too modern/simplified considering to its history. So maybe its not what people lived in Spanish paradors would expect.

        • Family with children
          9.2

          A true luxury hotel. Beautifully restored and although not technically a castle it certainly feels like one in the centre of M'dina. Excellent staff who not only carry out requests but anticipate any difficulties.

          Really can't blame the hotel for the unusually bad weather conditions but a building of this age has problems with torrential rain and gale force winds.

        • Group of friends
          10.0

          The staff was wonderful, any request was happily met . Everyone was very friendly and went out of their way everyday. The food was fantastic!!!!!

        • Older travelers
          7.8

          Location/setting

          Room had odd odor (like cat urine) and loud construction going on outside our room all day long.

        • Couple
          10.0

          Fantastic location, excellent service and value, a really special stay.
