The seaside restaurant Hammett's Macina is located in a 16th-century fortress. Dining al fresco here is an unforgettable experience in the warmer months, when the imposing bastions, the fortified city of Birgu and the spectacular harbour are illuminated by traditional fireworks shows. The gastronomic concept is a modern representation of traditional and Mediterranean culinary influences dating back to Phoenician times. Everything is made with only the best local, seasonal produce. The restaurant is open for breakfast and dinner throughout the week, and for lunch on weekends. 'The Bar' offers an international selection of beers, some 110 varieties of world-class wines, spirits and an exclusive cocktail list.
This hotel is located in the old fortified town of Senglea, which is part of the "3 Cities". With the water cab you can easily cross the Grand Harbour to capital Valletta.
Malta airport is about 10 km from the hotel.
A transfer is available between the airport and the hotel, which costs 30 euros per journey. You pay this amount on-site.
There is public parking in the area. Street parking is usually free, but finding a spot can be difficult, especially during business hours.
History meets luxury! You can take that quite literally here. The Cugo Gran Macina hotel was built in and around fortifications that date back to when the Knights still ruled Malta. This combined with a sleek, Scandinavian look and feel, makes for an exceptionally beautiful and unique hotel.
