History and Location
Palazzo Consiglia is a traditional Maltese townhouse situated at the heart of Valletta in St Ursula Street, just a few metres away from the St Rocco’s church and key attractions such as the Lower Barrakka Gardens, Valletta Waterfront and Fort Saint Elmo. This flawless building portrays Malta’s rich history, with a predominant Baroque design in the lower floors, and Roman and Arabic features that can be observed in the newest parts of the Palazzo.
The restoration of this building was undertaken with as minimal intervention as possible, in order to preserve its essence and expose the grandeur of the limestone work present in its interior. The façade has been meticulously cleaned, exposing architectural characteristics that have been illuminated with carefully selected lighting fixtures.
The concept behind the name of this Palazzo is as imaginative as it is enthralling. Consiglia is the name given to an abstract woman that embodies someone that is familiar in our daily lives. As with the Palazzo, Consiglia has many facets to her character and personality, so it is fitting that these aspects are uniquely reproduced in each of the thirteen rooms in this hotel.
When you arrive for your stay
Guests at Palazzo Consiglia will be greeted by a warm and lavish entrance hall that perfectly illustrates the welcoming ambience of this boutique hotel. With marble floors and wall panelling, the entrance is complimented with teal hues that set the scene for an impeccable stay. Our concierge will greet you as you walk in through the front door, where limestone tiles guide you to the discreet reception that is nestled underneath the stairwell.
The reception is connected to a spacious courtyard that is characteristic of Maltese townhouses. This space is bathed in natural light, which highlights the relaxing furnishings that sit in front of an evergreen plant wall. The courtyard provides an ideal location where guests can enjoy their breakfast or simply unwind with a good book. Even though the entrance and courtyard may not be overly ostentatious, they will definitely leave a long lasting impression with our guests.
