The Palace Sliema Review
I just came back from Malta, where I stayed at The Palace in Sliema which is a lovely boutique feel 5 star hotel.
Traveling is one of my biggest passions in life, and half of what makes the trip is the accommodation. For this reason I try and stay at 5 star hotels as often as possible, not because of the “it’s image” but because of the treatment & service you get.
The Palace gave me the excellent comfort I require,
there was absolutely nothing that could have made me home sick or feel discomfort – In fact I wish I could have remained sleeping in their comfortable beds forever! I feel so rested coming back, and it’s thanks to the high quality accommodation.
The first thing I do when arriving to a new hotel room is to inspect the view.
For me I need a balcony otherwise I feel crammed in my personal space. The view from my hotel room was absolutely stunning – panoramic sea view accompanied with the charming cities of Malta. When I was waking up each morning – I would just stand on the balcony for a few minutes, admiring the silent city and absorbing the morning tranquillity I so require.
It’s so important how you start your day, especially when it comes to the breakfast.
I’m quite a picky eater as I’m vegetarian but I still found plenty of options not to mention one of the best scrambled eggs I’ve ever had! Perfectly moist, not too dry! I never manage to make scrambled eggs like that myself. For this reason I do love the 5 star hotel breakfast, as there’s always quality food – never disappointing!
During my stay in Malta I spent a lot of my time at the hotel for various reasons.
I discovered their roof top infinity pool with – again – a panoramic sea view (It’s absolutely stunning). I literally moved up there to one of the deck chairs, ordering rosé and absorbing the sun like a D-vitamin addict.
My friends were really impressed with my tan since I got back, I was only away a few days but now am chocolate brown. I wonder if it’s because I was sunbathing on a roof top and the skin absorbs the sun more intensely? Either way I’m loving my new tan, hope it lasts for a while ☺
Another nice thing when you hang by the pool is having excellent internet connection. My goodness, why don’t more hotels think about the importance of powerful Wi-Fi?
I had super fast broadband everywhere I went; in my room, on the balcony, by the pool, in the breakfast area & even in the bathroom (haha). Loved the fact that you don’t need to sign in, pay or create any form of account to be able to use the Wi-Fi. Wish more hotels could have that type of service for true internet addicts like myself.
To summarize I’d recommend anyone who goes to Malta to pay The Palace a visit.
Their rooms are absolutely lovely, some are designer suites with fantastic decoration. My favorite is the Flavors suite, simply because I’m a big fan of the 50’s era.
But really, pay them a visit because of their service. Their staff are so friendly, making you feel welcome & well taken care of. For me it’s those small details that makes the entire stay feel top notch and just the way I believe a 5 star hotel should be like.
