Hotel Castilla Auberge is located in Plaza Castilla, close to Statue of the Knight of St. James, Malta Stock Exchange, and Upper Baraka Gardens. It is at the highest point of Valletta, overlooking Floriana and the Grand Harbour area. Castilla Oberg was originally a hotel in Valletta, Malta. It was built in the 1670s to receive knights from the Knights of St. John from Castile, Leon and Portugal. Only one floor. Between 1741 and 1744, the original Castilla Oberg Hotel was demolished and completely rebuilt into a Spanish Baroque hotel. In 1798, France invaded and occupied Malta. The Knights of St. John were expelled from Malta and the Auberge Hotel became the headquarters of the French army. After Malta became a British protectorate, the Auberge Hotel became the headquarters of the British army in Malta in 1805 and was also used as the residence of British officers. During World War II, the Auberge Hotel was also used as the headquarters of the Maltese and Libyan armies. After 1972, the Auberge Hotel was used as the office of the Prime Minister of Malta.
If you travel around in hotels with beautiful reliefs and observation decks, you will definitely care about the hotel you are in. This is the hotel I stayed in. It is in a very good location. There is a square next to it. We are standing in the hotel room. I can see a knight statue on his window. This statue is very tall and made of bronze. I can see his finely carved brows. The hotel is also the highest place in the city. We can take the subway directly to reach the hotel. Take a look at the highest floor. In the Grand Harbour area, see the white ships that go back and forth. Of course, the entire city can also be in our eyes. The viewing platform is not as good as here. This hotel is also the Baroque style that we all prefer, exquisite and luxurious. Although the exterior wall of the hotel is very ordinary white, it is gradually being polished by wind and rain, and gradually leaning against the yellow, but it is very good to better present the details of the reliefs on the hotel wall. There will be exquisite reliefs on every window of the hotel. There are several pillars and forts at the entrance of the hotel, which are really suitable for taking pictures. We can see many young ladies wearing Lolita filming here. Tips: 1. Opening hours: The hotel is open from 6 to 24 every day 2. Scenic address: Malta, Valletta, Triq ll-Merkanti
Take you to the luxurious mansion hotel. The Auberge de Castille near the statue of St. James is near the Plaza de Castille. It is at the highest point of Valletta, standing on the heights you can see the Grand Harbour area and Floriana. Auberge de Castille is the most luxurious hotel here, only presidential people can stay, the surface of the building is low-key and luxurious with the flag of Valletta towering high. This hotel was built in the 1870s to receive knights from the Knights of St. John’s Order. Since it was just completed, the total height is one floor. Between 1741 and 1744, the original Valletta style was transformed into a Spanish Baroque hotel. Later, as the knights of the Knights of Saint John were attacked, the Auberge de Castille became the headquarters of France. Malta was later classified as a British hotel after receiving British protection, and the British military fought and conspired here. Auberge de Castille also changed after the end of World War II. Finally, after 1972, the hotel was used as the office of the President of Malta, so the hotel has been a lot of ups and downs along the way and has a story. Now standing at the door, it seems to feel its firm belief. Because it is protected by the government, many places are not allowed to be visited and can only be visited for a limited amount of time and cannot be photographed. Reminder Address: Malta, Valletta, Triq Il-Merkanti,
This is one of the most beautiful buildings in Valletta. Unfortunately, as it is the Prime Minister's residence, you cannot visit it.
I stayed in the Castille Hotel in this square with super views of the harbour. Always spotless and great place to start exploring this capital city.
This former auberge now houses the Office of the Prime Minister of Malta, however it was not as impressive as I expected. Worth a photo if you're walking past but I wouldn't go out of your way.
The day I visited I was lucky to get see the Prime minister exiting office. It was his last day and the news reporters were there to see the Prime minister at that time depart. That day he exited o...
Such a shame you're not allowed into this beautiful auberge as it's now a government building and could make plenty of money from guided tours - what a waste and a disappointment.
