Love this spot! Easy access to Valletta, walking around, ferry ports, taxis, airport. Room was super comfortable- especially the bed- slept better than I have in days. Beautiful view of the harbor. Staff members were kind and gracious- made for a very comfortable and incredible stay. Will definitely stay here again when in Malta- highly recommend- 5 stars 🙂

This hotel was absolutely impeccable! The rooms were stunning, the spa was so relaxing and luxurious, the breakfast was delicious. The beds are the PERFECT, fluffy hotel beds that everyone dreams of. But what really put this hotel above and beyond is the service. Every person we interacted with went above and beyond to ensure our stay was as comfortable as possible, anticipating we needs we didn't even know we had! We felt like royalty, no kidding.My only qualm with this hotel is the lack of outdoor pool, which would have been great to have on the hot summer days. That, in addition to the fact that there isn't much of a "common space" within the hotel. It would be nice to have a bar/cafe/lobby area/patio even where guests can convene and have a drink or coffee and relax together. I understand that given the nature of the hotel being built into townhouses, this would be challenging to create. But, just a note for those to whom this might be an important aspect!Overall, this hotel is wonderful and the service is truly second to none.

We were lucky enough to stay at the Iniala when celebrating our engagement and it could not have been more perfect. Firstly, the staff are incredible and it was their kindness and attentiveness that really made the trip. We were welcomed with a glass of champagne and the team had even left celebratory treats in our (amazing!) room. They handled all external reservations for us and even managed to squeeze us in last minute somewhere we were desperate to try which turned out to be a real highlight. We had breakfasts on the outdoor covered terrace of its restaurant, ION Harbour, each morning - including what is hands down the best Eggs Benedict we have ever had. It was lovely to also try Maltese sausage and pancakes on the menu too. We ended our stay with an amazing dinner on the rooftop overlooking the beautiful harbour and wow, what a meal. Again incredible, knowledgable staff made the experience with their top tier service - and Simon Rogan's food is beyond deserving of its newly awarded 2 michelin stars. We have every intention of coming back, it was truly special.

A phenomenal hotel with two minor issues. We just left yesterday after staying in Room 122 which was amazing. Gorgeous decor, a beautiful large bathroom, a harbour-facing balcony from which I had my tea, and excellent staff. Two minor issues....1. I do love bathroom showers with no lip, but after a shower the floor by the sink was covered in water. There might be an issue with floor grading but I suspect the strong rainfall shower output exceeds the drain capacity. Whatever the reason, our floor towels were completely soaked. A minor issue but an issue.2. The door latch to the shower is tight. If someone is sleeping and you're getting out of the bathroom, you have to pull on that door. You can't quietly open the door. So the sleeping person may way up.Again, these are minor issues and I would absolutely stay here again. The location is perfect. Harbor views (and away from the bustle) and a short walk to the bars and restaurants.

Beautiful boutique hotel. Loved our stay here. The staff were wonderful. The breakfast is amazing. Try to get a room with a little balcony overlooking the harbour. The pillows were not great, but they brought us some feather pillows and it was much better. Great spa. Indoor pool and sauna, but no outdoor pool. Loved this hotel.
