A winning location in the beating heart of Valletta’s historic centre, combined with boundless style and modern comforts make the Rosselli a fabulous choice for those seeking to immerse themselves in the life and soul of Malta’s capital. The converted 17th-century mansion house was the former home of an honorary Knight of Malta, Don Pietro Rosselli, who contributed to the very fabric of Valletta society through his philanthropic endeavours.
While the Rosselli family crest remains evident throughout the hotel, the remainder of the interiors have undergone a thoroughly modern remake. From the dazzling white marble of the central lobby to the clutch of 25 creatively styled rooms and suites, a colourful design flair is evident on every level of the palazzo. The theme and outlook of the rooms vary considerably, but all feature top-of-the range tech, rich furnishings and high-quality amenities. For an extra helping of indulgence, the Don Pietro rooms offer a private wellness area with sauna, while design lovers will revel in the inspiring colour palettes and creative features of the Three Herons Junior Suites.
Dining at the Rosselli is always a highlight. Inspired by the tailors workshops that used to line Merchants Street, the highly-acclaimed Grain Street and Under Grain restaurants are some of the city’s most fashionable eateries. The latter has been the proud owner of a Michelin star for three consecutive years, with stellar chef Victor Borg having returned to his native Malta to oversee the inspiring menus at both venues. In a continuation of the theme, the Over Grain rooftop cocktail lounge is a superb venue from which to take in the glimmering lights over Sliema and the expansive waterfront.
