Hotel Info

Overview

The Canifor Hotel, classified as a four star property, is situated in the north part of Malta in St.Paul’s Bay. It is located just a few minutes away from the striking Qawra promenade where guests can find a variety of tourists’ activities and attractions including shops, bars and restaurants, a casino, bingo halls, a salsa club and various diving centers. The bus terminus, which is conveniently located just 50 meters away from the hotel, gives guests the possibility to venture outside St. Paul’s Bay.

Not 4 Star But Would Stay Again

Room small, but adequate for me. Shower drained water very slowly. Had to hire remote for tv, and also, hire tea and coffee making facilities, and more amazingly pool towels, at a cost of 3 EUROS deposit ( refundable) 3 EUROS to hire for duration, and 1 EURO charge every time you wanted to change your pool towel. Food average, pools both ok, but way too salty, half the staff were amazing and helpful, other half ignorant and rude.

Relaxing break

We were slightly disappointed when we arrived to be told we were in an apartment when we had booked the hotel but as it was a short break we just went with it, apartments very basic but clean, if we had been staying longer we would have asked to be changed as we booked the hotel (the apartments have a different name), food was nice, a few choices, tasty and plenty of it, pool area clean and relaxing, overall a good short break.

The best thing about my stay was...

Staff were friendly and everywhere was clean.
