Behind the adamantine fortifications in Valletta, you can find that the 2018 European Capital of Culture is home to groundbreaking contemporary architecture, worldly cuisine and a boutique hotel scene that can be reflected admirably in La Falconeria. The 16th century has brought about the elegant implications of Baroque elements, hence where the Rococo style of the hotel has come about. The building in itself is a relic of the past, with contrasts of modern luxury with century-old Renaissance discoveries, serenaded with marble flooring and artistic finishes. Half of the building had to be rebuilt as a consequence of WWII, which in unearthing the nooks of its remains, an ancient cave was discovered, which is now used as a cave pool in the underground floor.
At La Falconeria you will be situated in the heart of Valletta, with many of the city's historical landmarks within a short distance on foot. The harbour by way of the Sliema Ferry can be found within a stone's throw away, which gives you the opportunity to visit Sliema's natural pools and take a stroll to the nearby picturesque St.Julian's Bay. Come night time and you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Valletta, as the city is most popular for day trips.
If you are a fool for rooftops, stay from the third floor upwards so you can enjoy envious views of Valletta. Guests can watch half of the city, with the harbour and distant sea views in the backdrop.
This gem packs enough amenities to enjoy Malta from the indoors, with its cave pool, fully equipped gymnasium and restaurant, and the outdoors with their private concierge service. The property consists of forty-three rooms split into seven different categories. The courtyard is the centre of attention, as it interconnects through the lobby and the hotel's lounge area.
If you are a sucker for good food, besides being surrounded by top restaurants in the area such as Legligin, Rubino and other renowned foodie's haven, La Falconeria has an in-house restaurant that goes by the name of L'Artiglio (which means 'The Claw' in Italian). This Mediterranean restaurant serves daily specials that are in season, reflecting the incredible fresh produce that Malta offers. From the deep end of the restaurant, you can see the semi-open kitchen where the cooks do their daily specials, with the cocktail bar on the opposite end for an after dinner treat.
All of the rooms in La Falconeria are traditionally cultivated with Maltese tiled floors, and the rooms all pack modern amenities that includes dozens of TV channels and free high-speed WiFi. The façade of the hotel is detailed with various balconies of different classical styles, French balconies on the first floor, traditional Maltese balconies on higher floors, open balconies for the suites, and a 35 square metre terrace for the Executive Suite.
