AX The Saint John

AX The Saint John was a former merchant’s residence and shop which, whilst embracing its heritage and architectural details, is injected with an urban and industrial feel, within one of Valletta’s busiest streets, Merchant Street. One of the hotel’s most distinguishing features is the central courtyard, which provides a delicious dose of sunlight within the building.

The hotel is made up of 28 luxury rooms and includes a rooftop terrace with a pool deck, a fitness centre, and an in-house restaurant, promising an environment befitting a Knight of St John.

The Vincent

Located in Hospital Street, in the lower east side of the capital, The Vincent is named after the Valletta local who used to live in the same building - Vincent Montanaro. Made up of nine suites, The Vincent offers a stay in a place which is filled with a self-described ‘human warmth’- evident in the colourful decor and vibrancy of the rooms.

Domus Zamittello

Located on the bustling Republic Street, Domus Zamittello embodies class and elegance; evident in the elaborate architecture which highlights the 17th century craftsmanship. This hotel had originally been part of the earlier estate of the Auberge D’Italie, one of the langues of the Order of St John. The hotel is set on four floors and includes 21 classic rooms, including five suites. All are elegantly furnished with an emphasis on the history and style of the building.

66 St Paul’s

Valletta is rich in architecture, and 66 Saint Paul’s boutique hotel embraces this by restoring the architecture of the building whilst modernising the interiors with a contemporary tinge. The rooms differ in size and character, but this juxtaposition is evident throughout. Think flat screen TVs alongside traditional Maltese balconies. Located in St Paul’s street, it also boasts a courtyard cafe and rooftop pool.
