This is my review of the Palazzo Prince D’Orange Hotel in Malta.
+ After a 10-hour flight without sleep, I arrived in Malta surrounded by blue skies and warm sunshine. At the airport, there are plenty of taxis.
The Palazzo Prince d’Orange luxury suite is located in the heart of Valletta. After a quick 15 minute drive, I was greeted by guest services manager named Daniel.
He’s a lively + knowledgeable young gentleman who always has a smile on his face! The nickname for him is “the encyclopedia” and rightfully so! At dinner, he was full of information about historical and present-day Malta – but more on that later!
Staying at the Penthouse
There is a two-level penthouse suite (3rd and 4th floors). There are two bedrooms along with a kitchen and living room.
My bedroom had a warm and inviting vibe with bright spring hues + colorful paintings with a HUGE closet full of drawers and hangers for use.
+ The white marble shower is next to the bathroom on the right (not shown in the picture below). Hot water was available any time I needed it. Clean towels were provided daily and beach towels as well — just ask Daniel.
Liquid soap and Dove bar soap available in the shower but bring your own shampoos and conditioners. There isn’t a hair dryer so any ladies (or guys) with long locks, be sure to bring one and adapters/converters as needed for the voltage.
There are information packets and brochures available for you to explore and discover your way around the island.
The suite was comfortable + clean with a historical elegant vibe about it. The kitchen was exceptional though! It was immaculate and MODERN which I personally love. All white cabinets and silver appliances with a ton of natural lighting easily made it fun to potter about in.
Kitchen & Living Room
+ If you need to do any cooking, all utensils, dishes, and cooking ware are available at your disposal.
This is the dining area where you can have the family sit for dinner or enjoy drinks with friends. It is also modern and tastefully decorated with lots of natural light!
There are two terraces located in the front and back of the suite. The back terrace has a view of the city and the bay area. The front terrace is on the ground level surrounded by limestone walls and tall fresh plants for privacy.
Next to the kitchen & dining area is a living area with a comfy blue couch and throw pillows to lounge on. I spent some time here on my laptop while enjoying a glass of wine and getting some work done.
I am pictured here in the palazzo library. It’s a bit “famous” since Steven Spielberg’s The Munich starring Daniel Craig and Erica Bana had a scene filmed in here as well as the rest of Malta (Republic Square, Silema and Malta International Airport!)
Taking photos in the library with high grand ceilings, limestone walls and the ornate crystal chandelier made for a fun shoot.
There wasn’t enough time during my trip to really relax and read in the library but it was fun to get some great photos nonetheless. I suggest after a full day of exploring, take advantage of this space by curling up with a blanket, glass of wine + a good book.
There were some breakfast jams and honey laid out on the kitchen table as an extra courtesy – nice touch! The suites are also stocked with bottled water and refreshments for your stay as well.
This is the street that the hotel lies upon (up to the left). Be prepared for lots of walking around so bring flat comfortable shoes with some tread to keep from slipping. The palazzo prince d’orange is a stone’s throw away from all the shops, cafes, and eateries. The bus station and ferry station is also not a far walk.
Now, on my way to explore the rest of the capital — Valletta!
