Last weekend I stayed at Rosselli, AX Hotel’s newest luxury hotel in Valletta. I am not sure I have words to describe how beautiful an experience it was but it was surely one of the best places I have ever been.
Located in the centre of Valletta, the hotel is a former palazzo and the restoration is amazing. From the striking entrance, the elegant reception, the restaurant – which is out of this world - to the rooms, the attention to detail and the gorgeous colours are just so so stylish.
The colours are soft and muted to contrast with the bold wall coverings and make you think of secret gardens. Despite the hotel only having six rooms, the space and light create a feeling tranquillity and ease. Malta is looking for 6* tourists and you certainly feel like one at Rosselli.
Some rooms have a private spa, sauna and rain shower. With L’Occitane toiletries, sumptuous monogramed towels, complimentary tea, coffee and wine in your room as well as everything else you would expect from an AX hotel you could happily just stay in!
However, the roof terrace is superb and provides wonderful lounging out for indulgent sunbathing or just watching the city below. Especially with a glass of perfectly chilled white wine.
The restaurant ‘Grain’ was so good - both the food and the service all made an evening meal very special. Definitely one to put on speed dial.
Breakfast is also served here and, from the cute fruit with individual spoons to the cooked-to-orderhot food, it was all just a wonderful experience.
What made it so special though was the staff: you could not find anywhere a more professional, courteous and friendly team of people. Every single person went out of their way to deliver superior service. This is what makes a great hotel completely magical.
Super well done Rosselli, we will be back.
