Great value hotel

A very comfortable hotel with a nice poolside to sun bath. The restaurant is a buffet style all you can eat which is very good and the indoor pool is a really nice temperature to relax in however it is too small to do any swimming in. Reception were happy to resolve problem with the room very quickly.

Pleasant stay

This is the second time I have stayed at the Topaz. Pleasant, basic hotel and excellent value for money with efficient friendly staff. Plenty bars and eateries close by, though like most of Malta the areas infrastructure is pretty run down and not really suitable for anyone with mobility difficulties.

The best thing about my stay was...

Great base for sightseeing and walking, especially along the Victoria Lines and to the North

Lovely holiday

Enjoyed our stay, initially booked room only but upgraded to include breakfast which was very good. Staff super friendly and helpful with lots of local information which helped us get around easily. Room clean and tidy, fresh towels daily. Fairly central with a ten minute walk to restaurants on the sea front. Would stay here again.

Ok for a short stay

Very basic hotel, had a couple of cockroaches in the room and air con was very poor which made for uncomfortable nights. Staff were great, the location was good and the pool area was decent though 😃

Hotel naprawdę całkiem niezły ale tylko w cenie promocyjnej

Ogólnie rzecz ujmując hotel należy do średniej klasy hoteli. Czysto, obsługa bardzo pomocna i sympatyczna, ale są też minusy. Po pierwsze śniadania są mało urozmaicone więc po 2 dniach zaczynają się już nudzić, sprzątanie pokoju odbywa się w sposób niezrozumiały- raz wymieniano mi ręczniki, raz dokładano ręczniki, raz zabierano kubki, raz je zostawiano etc. Poza tym hotel w przedziale cenowym w promocji jak najbardziej wart uwagi

Not amazing

Read reviews before booking, and was rated 4 stars out of 5 on TripAdvisor, but felt disappointed when arrived at hotel. Room was very clean and good size, however food was so so-some days OK, others not great. Some staff were nice and helpful others rude. Overall impression is just a basic hotel for a reasonable price, expected nicer food and some situations handled better. Would have rather paid extra for better experience. Location- close to bus stop but Buggiba generally just very touristic without any sights.

The indoor swimming
