The Hotel Bayview is just a stone’s skim away from Sliema’s promenade, which means it’s got a clutch of cafés, shops and restaurants right on the doorstep.
The Hotel Bayview has scored a spot that’s hard to beat – it’s on the waterfront, the centre of Sliema is minutes away, and buses to Valetta stop right outside.
The hotel gazes out across to the island capital of Valetta, so expect some stellar views – especially if you head up to the rooftop pool.

Best holiday for some time
It was a shambles of our own making to start with. Firstly we booked 5 nights with On the Beach, sea view, half board. No problem. But then we found we needed an extra 2 days. Couldn't get any help from OTB but managed to secure 2 nights, room only in the nearby apartment complex with Locost Holidays. Add to that was the good lady and myself had been here before and purely on our recommendations, we'd brought with us another couple as well. But we did want a quiet room on an upper floor being light sleepers. So you'd have thought that would have resulted in a hassle filled stay of moving rooms and mixed levels of board. Fortunately I'd took it upon myself to raise the issues with their Reservations Desk by email beforehand and Jovana ensured that the hotel was aware of what was happening. I even offered to pay the difference if needs be. And I can honestly say that what the hotel came up with after day one exceeded our expectations as they moved us with a free upgrade a few doors down the road to a lovely two bedroomed [one ensuite] apartment with a large balcony and postcard quality seaviews across the bay. We still had our meals in the hotel of course and they were more than adequate; all the staff we met were just great and the hotel was clean and tidy. Dragana on the front desk particularly helpful with sorting the transition. The outdoor pool was O/O/S for a day whilst some retiling was being done but we used the indoor one solely on that occasion. For the rest of our stay the outdoor pool was there for us as expected. The beauty of it was that the rooftop terrace and pool wasn't too busy as most of the other guests staying there were exchange or gap year students and they were mainly out for the day. Only niggle was there wasn't too much shade about the pool area and the weather was clear blue and very, very hot. When the students did get back late afternoon, we moved back to our balcony with a vino and a few cans from the Oriental Stores up the side street and watched the world go by. Lovely. So would I go back? Definitely. The hotel didn't have to go out of their ways to upgrade us but I'm pleased they did. It just goes to show that if you have the advantage of being a returning guest and you at least keep people informed, for the Bayview at least, they will try to help you. A fair price paid, good meals, great location and the Island and its people have so much to offer. But to get to be a returning guest, of course, you have to go here more than once! Bus stop outside, 13A to St Julian's and ferries across to Valletta plus other assorted boat trips just up the road. The Black Gold bar same vicinity has bands on odd nights and could otherwise be Malta's answer to Wetherspoons. Do as much or as little as you wish. HOHO hop on hop off open top buses pass by the hotel but £20 each strikes me as being a bit steep, see if you can do a deal with Joe next to reception. Hire a car for a couple of days instead as we did - if you like a challenge as simple things like road signs, directions and pronounceable place names are in short supply. Another tip free of charge: Read about the Siege of Malta 1942 before you go or read it when you are there. Manoeol Island across from the hotel was the British submarine base, wow. Certainly brings it home to you. As I said, one of the best holidays we've ever had. Thanks Bayview.More

Typical Tourist hotel in this area
The hotel itself is good located on the waterfront of Sliema. During the summer months it's crowded by tourists. The hotel is clean and the check in was friendly The AC in the room is ways to loud and if you have to use it because of the heat, you'll need definitly ear plugs. There is a indoor and an outdoor pool and both are ok. But there is no shadow at all on the rood deck, so use tons of sunscreener if you're up there. The reception will not win the price for the fastest and friendliest service ever, but ok it's a cheap hotel so you get what you pay for. All in all, it an almost ok place, but there is way better hotels in this area for an equal price.More
Except for the fact they did not have a bar lounge it was lovely. You had to purchade drinks from a cafe at the front of hotel and bring them through to the lounge. This cafe does not belong to the hotel. More
No Bayview Hotel
Honestly, this hotel makes me laugh. For starters, when me and the person I was rooming with entered our room, the air con would not work. The view, although we were not there for the view, was not the bay view of what the hotel's name suggested. We saw the insides of people's backyards and the room across from us. The elevator on the side where I was staying was terrible and I was constantly worried that it would break down to which it did when we were to leave. Our drain closed up, but we expected to open it again to which we were wrong. Overall for just accomidation it is fine; the pool is nice, food is average. But if you are there for luxury, consider elsewhere.More
