Based on the northern coastline of the island of Malta, Canifor is a modern 4-star hotel offering comfortable accommodation for families and couples at a great price.

Although the hotel is located in the highly popular town of Qawra, it is actually benefiting from a very quiet position only a few short minutes away from the attractive promenade. As a result, you can easily enjoy the sizzling town centre with its huge variety of places to wine, dine, and shop in due to the easy access (50m) of the main bus terminus. However, should you need a quick retreat and some quiet time for you and your family – Canifor is still the right place for you. With its 150 rooms and 20 superior rooms, this modern hotel invites you to enjoy a pleasant holiday in Malta any time of the year. The close proximity to the vibrant centre and promenade promises to offer you a range of fun activities and opportunities to explore the area, while the hotel itself is where you can relax undisturbed by the crowds.

Each room is air-conditioned, bathroom ensuite, and fully equipped with a direct dialling telephone, Wi-Fi access (at a small charge), radio, and satellite TV. Should you need anything else, there are 24 hour front desk services and the friendly staff will be happy to accommodate to your every need! While we are on the facilities, the Canifor Hotel has both an indoor and an outdoor pool, plus a Sun Terrace with Jacuzzi, a sauna and massage services! Should you wish you can relax all day onsite and then sample some of the food at the hotel restaurant or even in the pizzeria, opened in the weekend and offering some scrumptious takeaway options for the ones who fancy an early night in. A small coffee shop and a lounge bar are sure to offer some refreshments and snacks in the meantime, so you will not have problems finding places to chill in either!

The Canifor Hotel is a fantastic option for families and couples alike who wish to spend their holidays in Malta, while enjoying an exclusive 4-star experience at a great price! A high level of personalized services elevates this one into our top picks, but if you are still uncertain, fell free to browse some of the other options for cheap holidays in Malta available from! For example, why don’t you have a look at Topaz and Blue Sea San Anton Hotel & Apartments that are also based in the gorgeous St Paul's Bay?
