    We are staying at the Solana at the moment and can't praise it enough. So clean and friendly. Must say that Egon on reception is the most friendly and polite young man and very professional. He has made mine and my husbands stay so relaxed, a credit to this hotel.

  • 6.2

    Just big, clean room and the price.

    1. No car park. Park the car near the hotel for longer period was almost impossible (paid parking area.) 2. Staff - not qualified (they have given us different information). Inflexibility of the hotel - we left the hotel at night, so we wanted cancel the last breakfast or change breakfast for dinner with extra charge. The managers told us, that is not possible -> we paid for the breakfast, which we couldn't take. 3. The location - away from beaches.

  • 8.2

    Good food. Price/Quality-ratio very good. Good bus connections. Nice staff. Short distance to the ferry that will get you to Gozo or Comino islands. Nice pool at the roof, and the view was also nice, you could see the ocean. Very peaceful area.

    Backyard view was bad. The hotel is in Melliha that is quite north, so getting to Valletta it took about 30min and then you needed to take the next bus to get to other place. On the other hand, the Valletta-Melliha bus went pretty frequently. If you're into nighlife, I recommend choosing a hotel closer to Paceville.

    Very good

    We liked how we were welcomed to the hotel by the receptionist and we were very satisfied with the reception staff throughout out stay. We liked the room and were satisfied with it being an inland. The quality of the food that was served was good.

    Most of the staff at the restaurant was not pleasant... We were not smiled at or greeted... We were very surprised with the limited variety that the buffet dinner offered, and we were very disappointed that the 'cold section' was not replenished at any time. In the morning, when we were on our way to breakfast the floor was wet and my girlfriend slipped in the hallway as there was no 'caution, wet floor!' Sign anywhere to be seen until you come to the outlet of the side of the hotel we were in. The staff at breakfast were negligent to the fact that there were plates piling up on our table, and they were talking loudly between themselves when we were sitting only a meter or so away from them.

    The facilities were great for the price we paid. The bus stop across the road brought us to the beach down the road. The room was a great size and our balcony was big. We had a kitchenette which provided a mirowave, fridge, toaster etc which is handy when travelling with small children. There was a lovely bakery across the road as well as other shops and restaurants. There was a children's play room with a huge castle which my four year old loved! The roof top pool was lovely. We found the staff friendly and provided alot of info on buses etc. There was a hugh selecton for breakfast which offered a full fry up, cerial, fruit, yoghurt etc and you could make some pancakes! We would stay there again.

    The straps on one of the high chairs were broken and my son almost fell out. There was a very strong smell of chlorine when we turned on the jacuzzi in the indoor pool room as the extractor fans were not on. It stung our eyes.

    Wonderful room, dinner good - excellent value if you upgrade your booking (10 euros pp).

    Distance to room - across bridge. No croissants at breakfast + brown bread ran out very quickly otherwise food was excellent.

  • 8.8

    Clean, functional hotel with all tha facilities you could want. Good location in Meleiha town close to bars and restaurants.

    Breakfast would be improved if they focused on quality rather then quantity.

  • 6.6

    An attractive lobby area. Hotel room is large and immaculately clean. Restaurant staff pleasant and helpful. Strong internet wi-fi connection in the lobby area.

    As we all know, first impression is crucial but we were greeted by an abrupt and grumpy receptionist. We stopped off for a caffe latte in the lobby but it was very bitter and unpleasant and every time during our stay the cups were still there when we came back down from our room to go to dinner - in other words nobody cleared them thus making the lobby area look very untidy:-((( Although the room we were given was large it was overlooking an internal courtyard and was very dark and dismal - poor lighting - which is such a shame in oterwise an attractively decorated room:-((( Choice of tv channels was appalling - only channels in English were BBC News or BBC Entertainment - NO MOVIES:-(((((( Food was very average and nothing special:-(( The gym is poorly equipped and again dark and depressing with no music/screens, etc Hotel should offer free wi-fi in bedrooms so that internet usage is private - TOO many users in lobby making the lobby look very unattractive and also my online account was hacked - no privacy:-(( Most 4 star hotels offer free wi-fi in bedrooms these days.

    Staff very helpful. Breakfast was good, you could even prepare your own waffles.

  • 9.2

    The staff were very helpful and courteous. The room was quite spacious and clean and the breakfast was varied and good. It is a very central hotel and close enough for country walks and also walks along the sandy beach.

    The airconditioner was very noisy and parking was a problem.

    Food 5 stars, location is very good, next to bus stop. Good price

    The room was not cleaned properly

  • 7.8

    Very friendly staff. We didn't like the room which we were given because it had no balcony and I checked at Front Desk whether they could give us another room. They did so immediately without any problems. Very good breakfast. This wasn't our first stay at this hotel and we were never let down - we would certainly recommend it!

  • 6.6

    We were no happy about the size of the television as it was very small. Also there was a constant smell of cigarettes in our room that remained there for the whole weekend.

  • 10.0

    I really liked the decoration. It's a modern hotel ant the staff are really nice. The breakfast is really good and cheap.

  • 7.8

    The room and other facilities are very clean. The breakfast was good and had many choices. The hotel staff are very helpful. There are several great restaurants around the hotel.

    The water in the indoor swimming pool was cold.. Not warm enough for winter and also there is no locker in spa where we can change our clothes and keep them. Other guests were also wondering around in the spa for the same reason. The smell of the cleaning detergent in the room is too strong. The bed and blanket are like 3 star hotel.
