A 400-year-old townhouse in the heart of Valletta, Palazzo Consiglia shows its class by favoring detail over volume, and chivalry over pretension. All of the city’s main sights are within walking distance from the quiet residential street on which this intimate boutique hotel resides, an address that contributes to Palazzo Consiglia’s warmth and charm.

Each of the hotel’s 13 rooms has a unique theme and ambiance. The rooms are distinct with a common eye for design and taste, from Maltija, brimming with local flavor and classic décor, to the earthy tones of Ecologica. Viaggiatrice is designed to appeal to those with cosmopolitan sensibilities, while Romantica blooms with sweetness for honeymooning couples. The furnishings and linens range from the exotic colors and sumptuous textures of bohemian Zingara and glamorous Diva, to the restrained beauty of Religiosa and modern Industriale. Your Ker & Downey luxury travel consultant will help you select the room that fits your personal style, adding a personal touch to your Maltese experience.

Breakfast is served daily in the hotel, and a 24-hour bar is available for snacks and drinks at any time. Guests can enjoy the rooftop sundeck and plunge pool and catch views of the Upper Barracca Gardens and the Grand Harbour while sipping drinks or snacking.

The vaulted ceilings and stone walls of the hotel spa call to mind the treasures one might find hidden in the townhouse cellar. Family treasures, delectable delights, or special wine cannot hold a candle to the riches of the pampering that await. A whirlpool plunge pool, steam room, and sauna are all tucked into renovated cisterns and niches throughout the unique space. For those who prefer a more private experience, massages can be arranged in your guestroom.
