Well after my holiday was partially wrecked with The Primera Hotel (am a regular) closed ,and the hapless Travel Republic totally cocking up my booking at The Topaz Hotel (don't book with them!) I found myself in the cheapest on Hotel.coms list, The Cardor.
I am practically a resident in Qawra and know where it is.
Have stayed in The Canifor Hotel a few times, but never their apartments The Cardor.
I must say I was very pleasantly surprised.
Ok I had no balcony. But I want in there much.
The Aircon was non existent and in July? Phew! But again was minor.
The TV was not in the bedroom but kitchen and no free remote. So I never bothered.
But what I got for my money, and it was cheap for the time of year was a great base.
Bathroom was new and great.
Cleaning to a high standard regular change of towels and freshen up.
Fridge was brilliant to keep your drinks really cold.
Crockery and cutlery handy for takeaways.
Staff were polite and friendly too.
All in all, it was fine. No complaints from me.
I would stay again but probably not in July. The nights were very hot.
Plus I do like laying in the bed watching TV in the quiet times.
So probably a hotel room but for bargain apartment style holidays? The Cardor ticks a lot of boxes.
Terrable place to stay. No reception you have to book in round the corner at the califor hotel. Then get a lift downstairs through the bar out the back door round the pool and through the back door of the cardor.we payed for a room with a land veiw OMG. Front window over looked the stairs and lift and other rooms. The back was a brick wall to which eveey one dumped the rubbish. All that was missing is the bars on the windows.
The staff. Were do i start. We were the 6 days and i didnt see one crack a smile. We tryed all week but to no avail. Not kid freindly at all. The food was ok tho. Little to no entertainment.
But please dont let it put u off malta. Fantastic place we go every year. Just say no to cardor
The worst place I have ever stayed rooms are disgusting the food is disgusting the hotel is gross we had cockroaches in our room there was black mould all over the paint was off all the rooms chipped and dated one of the sockets didn’t work the inside pool smelt vile if I could give it zero I would my bed was like a table with a mattress on it.
I always choose cheap 3 star hotels because I dont spend too much time in them.On a plus side the staff are all friendly,the breakfast was great there was a fridge a kettle a cooker and grill.The room was cleaned every day and beds were made and fresh towels supplied.
However I would never stay here again noisy at night from a loud humming sound that came on and off,I could hear the lift, the beds creaked if you so much as moved,there were cochroaches in the kitchen and who knows what was in the mattresses but I have more bites and lumps on me from sleeping on them the kitchen tap leaked the view from the tiny balcony was a building site and the hot water tank was so small I couldnt have a bath.
I know it was a cheap hotel and I dont mind roughing it a bit but come on ! this place needs some serious money spending on it to bring it up to date new mattresses would be a good start I dont like to be negative but there are far better places to stay in the area for around the same money
First of all, you have a kitchen, you have a bedroom and a bathroom.
The bathroom is tidy, it looks good, but you only have limited hot water.
The bedroom is very small, and when you open the window, you only see trash that was left there by workers.
They didn't change the bedsheets even though they came to the room 3-4 times.
When you have a problem, no one is willing to help you.
Conclusion, add some money and go elsewhere.
Or if you go to cardor, expect a 2 star stay.
