About British Hotel

The British is the longest established hotel in Valletta, and we are located in one of the city's quaint terraced streets.

This affordable two star, family-owned-and-run-hotel, overlooks the magnificent Grand Harbour. Our restaurant, lounge bar and most of our guest bedrooms offer panoramic views of this historic and picturesque harbour.

Situated two minutes from Valetta's prime shopping area and no more than five from the island's administrative and financial centres, the British Hotel is the ideal base for the holidaymaker and business person alike.

At the British we have 44 comfortably furnished guest bedrooms on six storeys - and most may be reached by lift. Some rooms have A/C at an extra charge daily.

Each room has an en suite bathroom or shower, a writing desk cum dressing table and a telephone for both international and local calls . Rooms have heating and fans. Twin and Triple rooms only have TV. A/C and safe deposits are available at a daily charge in twin and triple rooms only . Also available, is a laundry and dry cleaning service; and for the business person, our fax facility. Most guest bedrooms also have a balcony either on the back street or overlooking Valletta's famed Grand Harbour. (seaview rooms have an extra charge)

In summer and winter you can bask in quiet comfort on our roof-top sundeck, where you can enjoy a snack or a tall, cool drink as you tan.

In the evening take it easy in our lounge bar, or catch up on world news in our television lounge.

Connoisseurs of fine living can expect exquisite cuisine and flawless presentation in our restaurant.

We offer a delightful choice of Maltese food accompanied by the finest wines.

Friendliness and service. They are always appreciated when you receive a warm and friendly welcome as you check into a hotel.

At the British this not only happens at the reception desk, but you'll find a friendliness wherever you go in the hotel.

Soon you will not feel like a stranger any more, but one of the family. When you are made to feel at home, it gives you a different feeling.

Enjoy the difference at the British Hotel.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The British Hotel is the place to stay in Malta - especially if you're on a bit of a budget. It has a sort of classic feel to it - like you are staying in a bit of a legend. The room was very basic, inward facing (into a courtyard), but I knew that before I arrived and in fact it doesn't really matter - they have stunning views from the breakfast/dining room (and also a lounge room directly above it, with the same amazing view - looking out over the harbour of Valetta - I'd recommend getting up at 6.45 to see the sunrise - the first 10 minutes of it are breath-taking), and you'll probably spend most of the days wandering round the streets of Valetta or the temple sites of the island, eating out, etc anyway. So it was nothing fancy - but for me that was oddly part of its charm - everything was clean, bed was single but comfortable, staff were consistently friendly and helpful. Also - I arrived with some trepidation as I'd booked it online via Travellerspoint, which I'd never heard of before- so was half expecting to arrive there and they'd have no record of the booking - but everything was fine. After looking out of Valetta towards Sliema and St Julians - though I'm sure there good for a more clubby, pool-side stay - I was glad I'd opted for a hotel in Valetta and, especially at the British Hotel. I don't want to over-sell it or say it's amazing - part of its charm for me is that it is old-fashioned, labyrinthine and a bit basic - but I'll always remember it very fondly.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A very well situated hotel. We stayed in a seaview room, and the views are fabulous: every morning we wake up with the Great Harbour in our window: marvellous.
The staff is very nice: George always smile and offers any help you need. The hotel it´s very close to the Co-cathedral and Market Street. The breakfast is very complete and you can have it on the terrace with the view of the Three Cities and the Grand Harbour.
We choose this hotel because of its location: its on Valleta and very close to the Main Bus Station.
We recomend it !!!!!

Cenrally situated hotel with a fantastic view over Grand Harbour - from dinign room. From my room unfortunately only in a decaying back court. Room small but equiped with what you expect in a hotel of this price class, the cleanlines could be better.
