The large pool has been allocated to the neighbours, yes, this being so for nearly five years now. We are glad that you appreciated the refit. Best wishes to you!

Cheap and cheerful

Its location is excellent being near the bus station. The food is not up to much though the breakfasts are better. You get what you pay for and this provided a reasonable room, a roof over our head and a good location from which to explore the island. We did not want much more.

fabuleux séjour en dehors de l'hotel

Hôtel (quartier peu accueillant) fané, on ressent bien qu'il y a eu du passage et peu d'investissements ces dernières années. Literie très moyenne, passage des femmes de ménages que tous les 3 jours, salle de bain vétuste avec fuites signalées et non réparées au bout de 7 jours odeur pas toujours synonyme de fraicheur dans la salle à manger. Bon Maltes c'est super mais à l'hôtel on y rentrait pour dormir voilà...

Mukava perushotelli hyvällä sijainnilla

Kahden huoneen huoneisto oli oikein tilava ja toimiva, mutta ilmastointi ei toiminut kunnolla. Sisäpihan puoleinen huoneisto oli suht hiljainen.

Eher weniger zu empfehlendes Hotel

Kein richtiges Personal - Hotelgastverhältnis. Speisesaal weder klimatisiert, noch ausreichend belüftet bzw. Tropenklima im Speisesaal, was ein angenehmes Essen unmöglich macht. Zimmerservice/Reinigung unregelmässig und teils ganz ausgefallen. Dusche undicht, teils Wasser von der Badezimmerdecke tropfend. Kein richtiger Wasserdruck über Duschbrause. Wassermischer kalt/warm mangelhaft bzw. duschen war fast nur mit heissen Wasser möglich. Gesamturteil: Nicht empfehlenswert. Der günstige Preis bringt auch nichts im Verhältnis zur erhaltenen Leistung.

likainen ja rapistunut

Hotelli oli markkinoitu hienompana kuin mitä se oli todellisuudessa. Uima-allas oli lasten altaan kokoinen ja vesi sameaa ja likaista (uimavalvontaa ei ollut joten minkäänlaisia sääntöjä ei noudatettu altaalla, jonka vuoksi allas oli vain lasten leikkiareena, ei soveltunut aikuisille). Huoneen kylpyamme oli reunoilta homeessa. Viikon aikana siivooja saapui 2 kertaa ja pyyhkeiden vaihtaminen ei onnistunut. Roskia käytävillä ja tupakan savua tuli joka paikasta. Wifi ei toiminut kuin uima-altaalla, aamiainen hyvin suppea. Hotelli veloitti kaikista palveluistaan lisää( tallelokero jne). Hyvää oli sijainti ja toimiva ilmastointi huoneessa.

Viikon rentoutumisloma

Kävimme viikon rentoutumislomalla Maltalla toukokuussa. Bugibba oli alueena oivallinen, vaikkakin bussimatkat sieltä saaren muihin osiin kestivät ruuhkaisen liikenteen takia melko kauan. The Bugibba Hotellista olimme varanneet huoneiston, joten hotellin aamiaisesta tai muista ravintolapalveluista ei ole kokemuksia. Huoneistomme hintaan ei ilmeisesti kuulunut siivousta päivittäin, respasta saimme pyytää vessapaperia lisää lähes joka päivä, ja pyyhkeitäkin saimme vain pyytämällä, en tiedä olisiko nekin pitänyt itse viedä mukanaan. Respassa oli usein vain yksi henkilö, ja palvelu vähän henkilöstä kiinni, toiset olivat palvelualttiimpia kuin toiset. Kunnon hotellikirjaa taijonkin sortin opastusta ylipäänsä koko hotellin toiminnoista jäimme kaipaamaan, kukaan ei juurikaan tuntunut tietävän tarkalleen mistään mitään. Hotellia kunnostettiin ilmeisesti ainakin yleisten tilojen osalta, mutta pääasiallisesti koko hotellin ilme oli tunkkainen ja likainen. Toukokuussa ei ilmeisesti lämmitetä enää uima-altaita (joita hotellista löytyi jopa kaksi, toinen ulkoa ja toinen sisältä), joten meressä tarkeni melkein paremmin käydä uimassa. Hotelli lupasi wi-fi:n toimivan yleisissä tiloissa, mutta aulassakin toimivuus oli ihan tuurista kiinni, huoneisiin wi-fi:ä ei kuulemma saanut edes maksusta. Huoneessamme ei näkynyt myöskään televisiosta muuta kuin lumisadetta, vessanpönttö ei juuri paperia vetänyt, suihkun suutinta ei saanut oikein mihinkään säädettyä ja vettäkin sai laskea vessan lavuaarista melkein tippa kerrallaan. Kun ei ole aiempia kokemuksia Maltalta, ei osaa sanoa ovatko nämä ihan yleisiä ongelmia (vettä varmasti säästetään joka hotellissa), mutta seuraavalla kerralla tiedämme kokeilla ainakin jotain muuta hotellia.

Hintahaarukkaan sisältyvä ostos

Valitsin hotellin lähinnä sijaintinsa vuoksi,ystävieni hotelli sijaitsi lähistöllä.Huonointa oli kylpyhuoneen toimivuus,suihkun kanssa ongelmia ajoittain tuli vain kuuma vettä ja vc:n viemäri toimi aika heikosti.Huoneen siivous tosi hyvä,siivooja kävi joka päivä,roskis tyhjennetty ja vuode sijattu.Ehkä kylppärinkin kanssa olis alkanu sujuun jos oisin ollut pidempään.
