Casa Ellul
This boutique hotel is famed for having brought stylish and luxury accommodation to the heart of the capital. Built in around 1830, it started out life as a Victorian-period house, and was lovingly restored by brothers Matthew and Andrew Ellul. It has eight unique suites, each featuring exquisite decor and beautiful antique pieces.
Palazzo Consiglia

Located within a traditional Maltese townhouse, this boutique hotel offers 13 diverse rooms, each decorated in a distinct style. From the wallpaper and upholstery, right down to the antique furniture dating back to a range of eras and styles including art nouveau, art deco, classical and baroque, the attention to detail is evident in the decor.

This former townhouse was recently transformed into a deluxe B&B accommodation, offering five-star hotel standards with the warmth and personalised service of a family-run B&B. Apart from its beautifully decorated rooms and suites, the defining feature is the fantastic roof terrace from which guests can admire the unobstructed views of the Valletta skyline and majestic Grand Harbour. 
Palazzo Prince D
Palazzo Prince D'Orange
It’s hard to beat the unique personality of this 17th-century baroque palazzo, which has been divided into a number of luxury serviced apartments with beautifully restored, traditional features. The Wilhelmina Duplex is the best apartment, and boasts a kitchen/dining room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms and spacious sea view terrace. 
La Falconeria

The recently opened La Falconeria is housed within a unique building – the front part being hundreds of years old and characterised by marble flooring and artistic finishes, and the back having been rebuilt after being destroyed in World War II. Consisting of 43 highly-finished rooms encircling a wide courtyard, its mid-century decor and modern luxuries complement the historic structure.
