    Central location; near to airport. Reasonable price. Clean.

    No parking, and advertised as free parking nearby (misleading).

    Staff were nice

    The ac was terrible, non existant, I had to request an additional ac unit, for an additional price, the thing didn't work. Not only that, the unit required the Patio door to be slightly opened which brought all the Mosquito's in to the room. I have lived in the Middle East for over ten years, and I have never perspired as much as I did in the Astra Hotel

    Fabulous

    Th staff were great and very flexible. Friendly. Room was basic, but clean. GR8 value for money

    when booking online it stated that they had parking, but apon arrival they did not. We managed to find a park in a side street, so it was fine.

    Absence of the air conditionner in sweltering heat and no access to the telphone due to the hotel blocking telephone cards from the outside. Mind you the receoption did not have their hotel telephone cards to sell either.

    Superb

    Great value for your money. Good location, friendly staff and a clean, spacious room. Don't expect luxury. Close to shopping and dining areas.

    No cafe open before 7am if you want a coffee or snack in the morning.

    Very good

    The room was very nice and clean. We had a great view of the sea. Quiet.

    The staff all seemed to be new and unsure of policies and information. The breakfast was adequate, but not terribly impressive. The coffee/hot chocolate machine was not working for 2 days that we were there. We ate breakfast here every day because it was convenient and we are not morning people. I am sure you could find a better value for the 5 Euros lots of other places.

    Superb

    The staff were really friendly, the rooms were lovely and clean and the location was great for exploring Malta as it is a walk away from St Julians and Paceville where there are lovely restaurants and bars and it is 5 minutes from the cruises to the beautiful islands of Gozo and Comino and 2 minutes from buses taking you anywhere on the island. We got the room for a really good price and were not at all disappointed - it had everything you need and was quiet at night.

    It would have been nice if the hotel had a pool but it wasn't really an issue as there is a big lido opposite the hotel on the seafront and more if you walk along for a bit so we didn't feel we missed out.

    Very good

    Upgraded to the seaview room without an additional charge

    We requested twin beds to be moved together at the time of booking, but it was ignored. No overnight reception at the Astra hotel, needed to address a neighbour partner hotel for the room key after 23.45.

    Exceptional

    apart from 1 staff member i found the other 4 staff members we dealt with full of local knowledge and very willing to help us out with any questions we had on varoius topics ,the rooms were very spacious and the fan in the room made the inside temperature perfect as it was so hot outside,the showers were a great pressure too,price was excellent value for money

    walls were paper thin so any noise in the wee hours of the morning was easily heard not a major though

    Fabulous

    Really good location on seafront, close to bus stops and central.

    Layout of room - toilet and handbasin in different parts of room and door to toilet had frosted glass that was see through. No pool

    The hotel has just been refurbished and was clean and friendly. An excellent choice for those on a budget.

    Exceptional

    I was looking for a budget hotel and this hotel came up on the search. We stayed for 7 nights and the hotel is in a perfect location by the seafront close to bus routes and a short walk to restaurants, shops and the main Harbour. The seafront outside is a regular place for walkers as it entends to St Julians which is a 10/15mins walk. The hotel itself has a rooftop terrance to get some sun. We were fortunate to stay in a room with a view of the sea with a balcony to sit out on. The staff are very helpful and friendly and I would give them a 5 out of 5. Housekeeping was also highly rated as everyday on return the room was cleaned. There is a kettle to make tea but note that you would have to buy the tea/coffee yourself at reception for 2.50 euro or you can go to the local supermarket 10mins away and buy some if this is something you require on holiday. There is the sister hotel a 2 mins walk away which has a Spa should this also interest you. A Buffet breakfast is provide and a cooked breakfast can also be provided on request. There is a small charge for breakfast but overall not pricey and good value for money. Overall I would stay in this hotel again. There is mixed clientelle ranging from retired couples to younger tourists.

    Superb

    We had a spacious and clean room even though the room was very cheap. The location is perfect; super close to the sea and on a central location of Malta. Also the staff was very helpful and friendly.

    For 5€ you can get a breakfast, but that is somewhat poorly. And the English Breakfast they do on request was not available when we asked for it. I would recommend to have your breakfast somewhere else.

    Fabulous

    The Astra Hotel offers spacious clean rooms with small renovated bathrooms. No design, neither fancy (although we loved the traditionally tiled floor) but just perfect. Free WiFi access. Very friendly staff.

    Parking is in the street outside, but we never had problems finding a spot. I'd definetly recommend this hotel to whoever is in Malta for more than just beaches.
