            5.0

            The Alfonso is in a really nice location that is withing 4 blocks of the bars and 2 blocks of good restaraunts.

            The hotel was very basic. There were stray hairs on the comforter and bed that gave me the impression that the room wasn't clean. The comforter was very old and had some holes in it. The sheets on the bed had some stains on them. The toilet had problems flushing and the shower head came off a couple times. I don't think that my issues were unique. A friend of mine had a similar rundown room.

          • Single
            6.2

            It was basic but the bed was comfortable considering the standard of the hotel. If you are looking for somewhere basic, inexpensive and close to the action...this place fits the bill.

            The internet did not work. I booked the hotel specifically because of the internet, but was never able to login.

            What a fantastic hotel! The staff was amazing - including the night clerk who sang. Location was perfect - walking distance to hottest night spots, across the street from bus stop to get to Valletta, but was quiet. Arranged for taxi for early morning departure. Breakfast was just as it should be. Absolutely would recommend the Alfonso.

            7.8

            Very friendly, helpful staff. Generously sized room, ditto the bathroom, all spotlessly clean.The hotel is conveniently situated for Spinola Bay & St. Julians. Very good value for money

            Parking! I finally found a parking space about 400mtrs away! However that appears to be a common problem in that area.

            4.2

            It was central of St. Julians

            Internet was not working. The room was very dirty and not clean. Worst Hotel I ever have been on. They say internet working tomorrow 5 times. After a week it was still not working. Don't take this hotel

            the friendly, helpful staff and good location. it was not cramped, adequate room and breakfast facilities.

            some unavoidable street noise but not a real problem

            Payment in cash; bus-stop right outside, 5 min from Nightlife area & beach

            Breakfast could have been better organised; air-con in room made loud rusty noise; needs a refurbish or loosing a Star or two (3? Why?)

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            only 10 min away from the beach, very close to the bus stop. very nice staff, good breakfast

            very basic room, my credit card never worked there

          • Couple
            7.0

            there is normal room, good location and breakfast. Noisily road near the hotel.

          • Single
            5.0

            Good location to watch every full buses pass by.

            Not so clean. Breakfast with limited choice and low quality. Have to pay additional charge if you want to use the air conditioning. Booking did not show if the room is equipped with air conditioning or not.

          • Group of friends
            6.2

            friendly hotel, good value for money. Room was nice - good size although our room had no tv, air con and the bathroom door didn't close or lock. Went to change rooms (staff were really lovely and polite about this) and viewed 2 others - one large internal -very dark with no outside light and another with a balcony but this had a very small toilet and shower with the sink in the bedroom!! We chose to stay in the original room as this was much nicer - desite the bathroom door not closing. Great hotel if on a budget as it has easy access to everything. No pool, which you really need as there are no real beaches in this area- just rocks! Breakfast basic but was ok.

            No bathroom door closure, paper thin walls, basic breakfast, no pool, no tv in our room, no air con.
