-Bar closing at 10 pm was very poor +The strand hotel on first impression was of a very clean and compact hotel on the port front. Access from hotel to airport took about 20 max, which was a busy. Rooms were spacish and very comfortable & clean. I would've liked new bed sheets every few days tho. Only problem I had with hotel was the very early closing of the bar. 10 pm was totally ridiculous especially for holiday people. Over all I was very happy with the hotel. PS staff were excellent all week jim

A friendly and modern hotel located in a nice district Sliema, easy to reach by bus or car, with a wonderful perspective, excellent staff and facilities, a good restaurant and a shop with a lot of useful things.
We stayed at Hotel Strand for a week. Rooms were tidy and comfortable. The staff was super friendly and helpful – cleaners, receptionists, the staff of the restaurant etc. The receptionists helped us a lot (for example when we tried to figure out, how to read the local bus map etc.) and they took care of that we got a transport to the airport. The breakfast was good (english style) and the cafe (on the first floor) was lovely (great baguettes, muffins and friendly staff!). Only negative thing was there was a noisy construction site beside the Hotel Strand (during our holiday). But anyway – great hotel! I could absolutely go there again!
Me and my partner visited Malta for a week back in June. We decided to give this hotel a try due to the competitive price and the nice looking rooms. We were over the moon when we arrived. We arrived about 4 hours before our check in time, but the kind receptionist allowed us to go to our room anyways. The room was absolutely spot on. Very comfy, clean and away from everything. I read reviews about being able to hear people down the corridors. This was not our case. We had 7 nights of peaceful and undisturbed sleep. The cafe downstairs was definitely our favorite place to go before heading out exploring. Very friendly staff, a lovely hotel overall and an amazing stay. Just to note that the bar staff upstairs were absolutely amazing! They were all so kind and wonderful. Sara (I believe) was so welcoming when we arrived. We left our luggage in the room and headed upstairs to the bar and swimming pool. We were instantly greeted in a superb manner. Offered drinks, tops up and food but without being pushy. We enjoyed spending our evenings sitting on the rooftop, sipping our diet pepsi ;) and the odd alcoholic beverage, just admiring the beautiful city we were in. I would highly recommend this hotel. Bravo to all the staff there that make it such an amazing place to stay! We will definitely be back again one day!
Beautiful view from balcony. We enjoyed it every minute.Verified Hotels.com guest review

-Nothing +The staff are nice and helpful. The hotel is recently renovated, modern, clear and comfortable. You must upgrade to Sea-view suite, the sea-view is fantasy, right facing the harbour with Valletta opposite. It looks extremely pretty in dawn. The location is very convenience, you may take X2 from Airport, stop at about 10 meters away from the hotel front door. From the public bus stop, you may easily reach anywhere that you'd like to go.
-Simple window. +Ery friendly staff. Helped sick child, room clean. Breakfast good.
Ery friendly staff. Helped sick child, room clean. Breakfast good. Simple window.
The hotel is well placed. Beautiful view form the restaurant. Really well furnished and cleaned. The brakfast is really good and there is more than enough food, fruid and drinks. The welcome drink event was also really good.
Me and my friend stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in last days of June. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. The room was clean and tidy, comfy beds. TV had a limited number of channels, but we weren't spending much time in the room. Air conditioning was very effective and welcomed. Pity that we havent a fridge in room. Good shower but I agree with other opinion could do with a shelf for toiletries. Location of the hotel is very good. The rooftop restaurant has a wonderful view around. Quite close to a bus stop and approx 10 minutes walk is the ferry taking you over to Valetta. Plenty of eating places nearby.
My Mum and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in June. We were a little apprehensive before we arrived as had seen reviews about the noise from building work however, because of this we were expecting the worst, but it wasn't as bad as we thought. Yes you can hear the building work from neighbouring hotels and yes it is Iittle unsightly, but the whole resort looked like it had building work going on somewhere. If this bothers you I would suggest visiting in a couple of years! It is worth noting though that the road noise is just as loud. We were on the 4th floor and had a room with a balcony, but it certainly wasn't piece and quiet. We didn't mind this though as we had headphones with music, and the gorgeous views made up for it. The roof top area was nice to sunbathe in (we were quite lucky as it was never too busy). It has great views. Up here the road noise is very discreet, and on Sunday afternoon we didn't notice much building work either. Perhaps they take an afternoon off? We were upgraded to a family room which was nice to have the extra space and it also had a kitchenette area where we made use of the fridge. I definitely wouldn't recommend one of the internal rooms as you will not have a view at all and I imagine the rooms to be dark - pay the extra for a balcony. The room was clean and tidy. Good shower. Comfy beds. TV had just 1 English Channel but we weren't there to watch Tv, and we had music on our phones so it wasn't silent in the room. It is a shame there's no free wifi in the rooms but the hotel makes this very clear, and most UK phone networks now offer free roaming in Europe. The staff were very friendly and reception were always happy to help. Location of the hotel is very good. Close to a main bus stop (transportation is very easy around Malta, I recommend using the bus). There were a few bars and restaurants nearby. We loved the Black Sheep which had live music on Fridays and Saturdays, and also the Asian restaurant was the best I'd been to! Huge portions and delicious food. Approx 15 minute walk is the ferry taking you over to Valetta which is such a gorgeous place! You can get a mini bus from the Valetta harbour up to the city centre for €1 which saved the steep walk (I think the bus stops at 5pm though). 15 minute walk to the main centre of Sliema with lots of shops. Airport to hotel is €20 by taxi. There is a shop next door selling literally everything! And a cafe next door too. Overall I enjoyed Sliema (particularly due to how accessible Valetta was) and I was happy with this hotel.
The very best help we got from Vania Dordevic at the Reception. She is also the most beautiful woman on that Island. She gave us many tipps where to go and was always smiling and friendly (y) hvala Then, i want to mention Joe Mallia, a very nice Person. My favourite one, Sara Gomez, was not there anymore. After all, it was such a nice Trip. Best Place to go is maybe Blue Lagoon. Thats awesome. Breakfast Area is nice, Room was always clean, .. you made us feel just happy!! The Hotel with its View... uncompareable! Special Thanks to Vania !!!
We had an amazing time and would go back to 115 The Strand again. We had a sea view and feel that it was good value for money, All the staff we came into c tact with were friendly a d helpful.Verified Hotels.com guest review
Bra läge och bra pris. Fin utsikt.
A very nice suite, spacious, great balcony view and terrace with the (very small) pool/jacuzzi. Tasty food, variety of choice for breakfast. Very good location - close to the bus stop, shops, marina, Manoel Island.Verified Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the convenient location for trips all around the islands. Stayed in a standard room with great view over the habour. The staff was great and helped us plan and book our trips. We definitely recommend the hotel, if you are looking to take some trips and don't have a car.
Very friendly staff, great location -7 minute walk to Sliema ferry. Restaurants and cafes just outside the hotel as well as small convenience store. Comfortable bed with excellent shower. TV did not work Booked a taxi to the airport through the hotel - taxi was 20 minutes late
My husband and I stayed here in one of the Suite apartments and really loved the room. It was spacious, with a little balcony and very clean and cool (hurray for air con!). As we stayed in the Suites, we were in a separate location down a side street, but I found this to be really lovely and quiet, and still very close to the main street with all the amenities nearby. Highly recommend!
My 2 nephews and I, loved our stay here. Booked the rooms online, received a letter shortly after, with possible additions. I wrote and asked for a few ad on's. The answer came very promptly (we were picked up at the airport and had our beautiful view for breakfast) We were checked in by two kind girls who gave us a few suggestions for lunch and the supermarket we needed that day. Our great room, air condition (max2 min to figure it out) clean and large and the view.: Wow wow wow. Hotel is perfectly located, walking distance to about everything. Bus stops and ferry rides, shops, pool, ocean swims, etc. For all 3 days, every shift of staff working the check in, gave us ideas, were always friendly and kind (due to weather changes we had to short-term change our plans) My nephews asked me to give you 10 stars, I explained 5 is max , they asked me to give you 5+.
Nice hotel in centrum of Malta. 15 min too Sand Beach. 20 min to capital- Valletta. A lot of shops, restaurants. Very good bus comunication. On the roof ,this is 8th floor is restaurant with jacuzzi with exellent view on Valletta and sea.
Nice place to stay in malta. The only problem we faced is to get vegitarin food in the hotel. rest all is good. also thanks to Mr.Manav for his fast services through out our stay in the. hotel. value for the money & the part is the location.
Everything was perfect! We had excellent stay, Clean room, friendly staff perfect location!
First time in Malta very convenient clean helpful stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel is in a great location to catch busses to everywhere on the island, as well as boat excursions to all tourist points of interest. Wonderful to walk or jog along the seaside promenades. Several good restaurants just along the Strand. We enjoyed all....no complaints.
I had the pleasure to stay here for almost one and a half months, in 3 different rooms. Liked all of them. Wi-Fi was a bit of a problem sometimes, but pretty good. And free, unlike other hotels. Also, no extra ”surprise” fees at check out (like others hotels do) Loved the rooms and the small kitchen, fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, glasses and cups... Bathrooms are ok. None of the rooms had bathtub in the bathroom, only showers. I am pretty sure none of the rooms have bathtubs. Unfortunately construction site near the hotel makes a lot of dust in the area, so when you leave the window open over day, you get a lot of dust everywhere. Fortunately cleaning service is great. Receptionist are friendly and really nice. Restaurant staff also friendly and very welcoming. Food is good. I only had breakfast here because I was at work during the other meals, but I was pleased with the food. AC in the rooms is a bit weird to use and set, but maybe that was just me... Rooms do have a safe box, key is available at the reception (20 eur deposit, returnable in full when returning the key) Overall very pleased with my stay here. I only used another hotel for 10 days of the total of 47 nights I was in Malta, and that was because my employer could not find any more available rooms for the period. The job extended from the original plan, so when the new booking was made, there were no more rooms. The hotel also has a luggage room available, if you wish to leave your bags here after check-out and visit the city without the extra weight
-Constant construction all around the hotel made it impossible for us to go out on our balcony to enjoy the view or the weather; we had to keep the door shut most of the time due to the noise. The hotel is situated on the main road, so even if there wasn't construction noise, the noise from the traffic and pedestrian crosswalk is loud. +The staff was so very friendly at this hotel! The room/bathroom were very clean, bed comfortable, and the view from our balcony was amazing. Breakfast was good also. The location makes it super easy to get on a ferry over to Valetta or a local bus. There are a bunch of good restaurants within a block or two of the hotel.

The room was large and comfortable. Very good breakfast the only problem was caused by the noises in the early morning from the workers at the hotel near. The staff was very kind and helpful.nice stay
Excellent choice of breakfast Nothing
friendliness of staff - good location - price value ratio is perfect
Clean room, new furniture, polite stuff, location, excellent view from the terrace. Lack of sound isolation. Toilet flush not working correctly no Windows in the room.
Spacious apartment with fantastic views over the lagoon to Valetta. A fair amount of building work going on nearby but not the hotel's fault, and we were not unduly disturbed.
Good hotel, clean and in a great location. Sorry that our room did not have windows overlooking the sea. The staff also speaks Italian. Close to all the centers to visit and served by an excellent bus service.
The view to the harbour and to Valletta was very pleasant. The staff was very kind and helpful. It is easy to get to Valletta with the ferry: 5 minutes walk, 10 minutes in the ferry, and for 1.5euros. Soundproofing between the rooms was not too good and the street where the hotel was on was quite noisy.
What a view from the top floor! Amazin terrace!
We throughly enjoyed our stay. The staff were very accommodating and knowledgeable. They went over the top to make sure we had a wonderful time. We also love your proximity to everything on the island...including the amazing view from our room. We would have liked Internet in our room. Rather than going to the lobby we're there where far too many students accumulating.
Staff disponibilissimo e gentile!struttura pulita letti e cuscini.comodissimi!!! Assenza di shampoo!
Idéalement placé près des ferries et du centre de Sliema Le petit déjeuner était copieux et varié. Le calme régnait malgré les travaux aux alentours.
Great location, beautiful bay, bus station very close to the hotel. Many construction sites nearby, a little bit noisy
Location- close to ferry services Great panoramic view over Valletta and harbour Not good cappuccino No fresh juice
I had a room with a great view over the bay and Malta. The room was very clean and confortable. Stuff of the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The only thing I would recommend are more vegetarian options for breakfast. The stay was really great!
The cleanliness of the hotel and the breattaking views of Valletta. Stuff was very friendly and helpful. Breakfast could have had more options vor vegetarians.
Large rooms. Good bed. Friendly, helpful staff. Excellent location. Bus nearby to everywhere. Restaurants, cafè`s and bar`s all around. Also a good place for shopping close by. Great view from the breakfastroom and terrace at 8th. floor.
Restaurant Service was good. Specially foods serve by manav sanger. He is very nice guys. He understands english very well. Rooms are good . Free WiFi. Overall good. Contivity with guests is good. Friendly staff five star from my side specially for manav sanger ....................................
My partner and I stayed at 115 The Strand for a holiday to Malta and it was a brilliant stay. On arrival we got surprised with a free upgrade to a bigger room with a balcony and views to the harbour. The room was clean and had all we needed for the stay. The restaurant upstairs is a must. We found that the dinner was a tad overpriced for what was on offer, but it was buffet so you could get your money worth. The breakfast though was amazing. The food was fresh and the views from the rooftop were great. The staff at 115 The Strand were lovely and helpful. If I were to come back to Malta I would stay here. Only an easy 7mins to the ferry to Valletta and numerous bus route to major attractions in Malta. Highly recommend this hotel.
I definitely recommend this hotel for good service and very friendly staff. The rooms are very nice and nicely furnished and tidy, also i would like to mention Ms Vania the receptionist she is very professional and helpful. from room number 306 Mrs Tetiana Ellul and Mr Jonathan Baldacchino Thank you and keep it up.
The nice and clean place. Good dinner and breakfast. Good location. The noise in the room on the 7th floor.
There is a comfortable bed
lovely hotel with high standard, clean, neat and with good views to the sea. the rooms are nicely furnished with flat screen TV and a nice bathroom with shower. The views from the rooms are stunning with the bay in the foreground, and Valletta in the background
