Visited the strand for the second time and it was as wonderful as the first. The staff deserve a special mention as they are so polite and lovely - they really make you feel welcome. Room gorgeous as always, heading back in January so I’ll be looking at staying at the strand for sure!

This hotel is in a fantastic place . Really good place to stay central to all amenities transport available close by to any part of the island. The hotel is really clean and the staff are friendly and helpful, especially VANESSA. She is really professional and attentive to the details. All in all a great hotel so highly recommended.

Rooms were very small but new , nice and clean. Looked exactly like presented on photos. Room without sea view has only small window (you can see only walls) and almoust no daylight . It's was ok for us since we stayed only there 3 nights and we spend more time sightseeing than in the room.

I stayed at The Strand in a one bedroom apartment for two weeks, I found the apartment to be very clean, practical, secure and modern. The location was very central (the apartments are in a building 2 minutes away from the hotel), all the staff were very lovely and overall it was an enjoyable stay. I definitely recommend it and I would stay again for sure!

The location is perfect within a short walk to Sliema. The apartment was so large and spacious, with new furniture and electric equipment, absolutely clean. The terrace was a nice place to sit outside, to relax with a drink and to enjoy the view. The hotel staff is so kind, courteous and helpful.

This is a nice hotel with braekfast at the top floor, 8th, with a splendid vew of the harbor and the capital La Valetta. Ideal location next to busstops and a walk away from the ferry to the capital. Friendly and helpfull staff.

on via Booking.com

-There was no proper window and any daylight in our room. Maybe we should book the room with the sea view, then there is a window. +The room and the hotel was clean and tidy. Our room was quite big and we had kitchen equipment there as well. There is an amazing view from the 8th floor restaurant where the breakfast is served.

on via Expedia

Clean, comfortable and warm rooms. The air conditioning and fridge was great to keep things cool. Good food in the restaurant and the staff were helpful. The cleaners were friendly and said good morning every day we bumped into them.
Cons:
There was only 1 complimentary bottle of water per room. Please make it a complimentary bottle per guest as it is a generous gesture.
Pros: Clean towels everyday
Location: Great location for buses to other locations. Plenty of restaurants and bars in the vicinity. Lovely harbour to walk along and pretty boats.

-The disabled ramp outside, it was too high for a wheelchair and it's user, we very nearly had an accident. A couple of local people saved us from the situation. It spoilt our stay and restricted our ability to get out and about. We only managed to get one of our party out of the hotel on a couple of occasions. +Centrally based, very clean and comfortable

If you're bothered about a great view from your hotel balcony The Strand Suites are not for you - because the apartment look out on the back of the building at roofs and other buildings. If, like us, however, you have other priorities, you'll love The Strand Suites. Spotlessly clean. Smart modern furnishings. Good cooking facilities. Very secure. Really quiet at night. Cool with plenty of fresh air and aircon if you need it (we didn't in October). And the location is brilliant with buses, ferries, shops, restaurants and take-aways all just round the corner.

-Kaffeautomaten, det blev ofta lång kö. Man borde separera placeringen för juice och kaffe. +Frukosten var väldigt bra , mycket att välja på. Vi hade ett väldigt fint rum med kitchenette på 7:e våningen.

on via Tripadvisor.com

Spent a pleasant week here and would come back. The room was a good size and although mine was right next to the lift shaft I wasn't disturbed by noise and slept well. The rooftop terrace offers a great view over Valetta. The hotel is conveniently placed for local bars and restaurants, the Sliema ferry, boat trips and the hop on-off buses. The reception, cafe and restaurant staff were all pleasant and helpful. Housekeeping tended to replace towels regardless.

had one of the best holidays at this hotel .from start to finish .had a side sea view room.okay the balcony was not very big in fact you could only seat one person ,but that was okay as we never sat outside .preferefring to sit up on the eight floor where there is a small jaccuzi pool and sunbeds along with a bar to which you can have a nice cold drink ,also this is where the restaurant is for breakfast which there is something for everyone. we had dinner which was very good indeed .the room was spotless maids were in every day anything you needed was not a problem .great location 5 min to the ferrie to valletta which we used every day .when you get to the other side use the red mini bus 1 euro worth the money .there is also some good restaurants only a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel .the coffee shop next door which is run by the hotel make you feel so welcome and the coffee and cakes are good .so in my eye can not wait till we come back.can I also say thank you to vannessa how was very helpful saying that all staff members where lovely .roll on next year .

We had to make a last minute booking at the strand and was so glad we did. After arriving at the office after midnight. The staff ensured we were booked in quickly and had security escort us to the apartment. The apartment was spacious and kitted out to a high standard. I would have loved to have stayed longer. Located a minutes walk to the waters edge. I would highly recommend checking them out.

-Small niggle ... Tight entrance, one could pass by hotel if not paying attention. +Reception at check-in was excellent. Helpful, even offered a smile which sadly is lacking more often these days Room was large with good facilities. Bar/dining facilities on 8th floor good views.

Brigitte was so helpful & compassionate when assisting me with amending my reservation so that I could return home earlier & take necessary steps to safeguard my home from Hurricane Irma. What a comfort she was during a stressful time! Thank you SO much, Brigitte! Chiara checked us in & was very courteous. She answered our questions enthusiastically & thoroughly. She also arranged our transportation to the airport. Thank you! The hotel room was very clean, modern, quite comfortable and well appointed. We had a Sea View room and it was absolutely lovely and so relaxing! Comfortable mattress, no problem with room A/C, and a well lit bathroom. The 2 multi-country electrical adapters and full size hair dryer were an added plus. We did not use the room wi-if, so cannot comment on that. The dinner buffet at Giulio's on the 8th floor was not only convenient, but delicious as well! The chef was standing on the serving line & engaged all patrons. The taxi service arrived right on time to take us to the airport. We would not hesitate to stay there again or to recommend it based upon our experience. The property is very nice & the staff made it even better!

We stayed for a week in September and would go back! Which is more than can be said for other hotels. Our flight arrived 3 hours late so missed our pre-booked taxi and the lady on reception was very apologetic, it wasn't their fault! After some poor reviews I was a little worried but our room was nice, clean, spacious and air conditioned! We had a studio room with small window over an internal space but knew this when we booked! The roof top jacuzzi was lovely but a shame it wasn't open later. Bars and cafes close by, along with ferries to Valletta, bus stops and not far from the sea. Lovely place and thanks for having us

Took my mum for a weeks holiday 1st week September .Great location easy access to tour bus across the street and ferry to Valletta in walking distance .Staff were so friendly especially receptionist Vania our waiter Manav and our waitress Vanessa who couldn't do enough for us . Good breakfast each day, beautiful view from rooftop , rooms were clean with air conditioning. Mum loved it here and everyone loved my mum and would return again.

-The view - the window opened on the interior chimney-like spece, so no daylight in the room. The wi-fi signal in the room was poor, the code received at the reception didn't work, so we just used the 3G on our mobiles. Breakfast too pricy but there are bars just outside. Not very well noise isolated - take earplugs. +Location - convenient to reach by bus or taxi. 17min from Valetta by bus and some 30min from the airport (by taxi). Offered rooms for group of 2+ people. Small kitchen in the suite with kettle, tea and instant coffee available. Modern, big, clean room. Bathroom was bit too small but sufficient.

Having stayed in here this summer, I have very fond memories and would for sure stay here again, whether it's for a business trip or a holiday. Room: The bed was very comfortable to sleep. Rooms are spacious enough, modern and clean. Also the air conditioning is a big factor when it's so hot outside! Reception: Open 24 hours, very friendly and always help with any issues or questions. Restaurant: The restaurant was one of the highlights! Food was always of a high standard and delicious. Breakfasts were varied - croissants, breads, cereals, meats, eggs, fruit etc. The evening meal was also always a very good experience, and probably better than most other restaurants I tried in Malta. Big credit to the chefs who always made flavoursome and healthy food! Mainly the meals tended to be in Italian style, but again, there was always something for everyone. The choice tended to include soups, salads, pasta, meat, fish, vegetables plus a dessert. The staff in the restaurant also created a very friendly atmosphere. A particular mention to Manav and Elvira who were always in a good mood and up for a chat as well as providing very good service! Location: The hotel is just opposite the promenade which is not only a beautiful place for a walk but also where the ferry for Valletta as well as many buses depart. There are also many shops, cafes and restaurants close by and a wonderful place to swim (the beach at tigne point) just a 15 minute walk away. Overall if you are coming to Malta and want a comfortable hotel in a lively area this is the place to stay!

-The room and the bathroom were a bit small, but that's very subjective. +The location is perfect! Close to Sliema and the public transport as well as the sea. Breakfast was served on the roof with an amazing view of the Mediterranean.

We stayed 4 days in room 614. The room was very nice and clean. There is a fantastic view over Sliena Waterfront / Valetta from the balcony. Very friendly and service minded staff, breakfast served at the rooftop restaurant. Good location close to the ferry to Valetta and all the different tourboats. 100m to the nearest busstop.

-The beautiful receptionist with overly curled dark brown hair on the morning/early afternoon of Friday 25th August 2017 was not just rude, but a downright liar, that told me she had no standard rooms. She tried to sell me a higher end room that wouldn't sell and said that although booking.com was showing a room available, it's false. I came back and took advice from a friend that they have to honour a booking.com booking or give an upgrade. I did so, proving her a liar to her face (priceless moment!), and, with her reluctance and disgust, I got my desired room. But she made me feel unwelcome. Due to such poor service, I moved to another hotel the next day with helpful staff that were delighted to have me as their guest and none of this nonsense. I advice management that this is very unprofessional and harms their image as I would recommend other hotels nearby to friends, especially Sliema Marina Hotel, which even offered a free upgrade to a Sea View room for staying more than one night. +Location next to sliema

Great hotel with fabulous views of Valletta . Situated in the heart of the Maltese tourist area with convenient access to Valletta, St Julian's, Baystreet and Paceville. Wonderful restaurants, bars and shopping in the area or just take a relaxing stroll along the waterfront in front of the hotel. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable and always ready to help. Guilio's Restaurant serves a good, well rounded breakfast but we never ate dinner there. Rooms are comfortable and spacious. The AC was a God send after walking the hot streets in mid summer. Thank you to the owners and staff of this hotel for helping make our Maltese vacation surpass our expectations.
