Travel operator: On the Beach
Hotel tip: Very lively,nice view from the hotel,there are more bars and pubs
All in all I would say that this hotel is only suitable for teenagers who just needed a place to lay their heads after getting in at 5 am after clubbing all night right opposite the hotel. If you are an older couple or a family with children I would not recommend you even think about going here.
Had we realised the locality of the hotel to all the clubs then obviously we would not have booked to go there as the noise just goes on at full pitch all night right up to 5 in the morning. Maybe we should have done a bit more research on that before booking.
Every person we spoke to whilst at the hotel was of the same opinion as ourselves and I am sure that the long-suffering staff at this hotel must be constantly inundated with complaints.
Also for anyone who has any type of mobility problem stay away from here as whatever you want to do, other than go to the beach, involves an uphill climb or a treck up 65 steps albeit to go to outside shops, pubs or to catch a bus to anywhere else.
We spoke to our holiday Rep to ask if it would be possible for us to change hotels for the last 10 days of our holiday only to be told that to do so would cost us

The situation is excellent, about 50 metres from the small beach at St George's Bay and right opposite the stairs that lead up into Paceville (Malta's much smaller version of San Antonio) - Fuego club is literally across the road. A few minutes walk takes you into the centre of St Julian's with all its shops, pubs, restaurants and bus station. The proximity of so many bars and clubs (open until around 4am) and the usual takeaway food outlets makes this an ideal hotel for night people, but would also suit families if you are not looking for a particularly quiet holiday.
Each room has a balcony, but most of them face into the mall and the sounds do tend to echo up from the cafes putting out their chairs in the morning, to the revellers late at night . This is my only reservation in recommending Bay Street, but we didn't find it a problem - with the windows shut and air-conditioning on it didn't bother us.
Overall the location and generally high standard of the hotel more than compensated - the rooftop pool (with a children's pool and terrace) is awesome, with fabulous views across the bay and you really do have everything on your doorstep, including waterfront cafes where you can enjoy a full English breakfast (maybe on your way home from a good night in the nearby casino)!

We actually ate out for breakfast two of the mornings just for a change - also the only waitress in the morning at the hotel was never welcoming, she seemed to clear tables, slam chairs and rattle cuttlery constatly every morning - she didnt put us off though!
The rest of the staff were friendly and helpful, maids were lovely and the reception staff were too. There was no "entertainment" on at the hotel, as the hotel itself is the top 3 floors of a busy shopping complex, but there is ample going on in and around the hotel grounds as it is situated in the heart of Paceville.
Hotel Internet Cafe was very clean, but they insisted on playing very loud jazz music every day which was very off putting at times. I would visit this hotel again definately, we loved our time there.
