Rosselli AX Privilege 

Romance with a flourish

Located in the heart of Malta’s capital city, this 17th-century boutique hotel is a haven of style steeped in Valletta’s history.

Draped in the rich history of Valletta and laced with the legacy of the Knights of the Order of St. John, this luxurious five-star boutique hotel is a residence to behold. From sipping welcome drinks in the traditional service room overlooked by magnificent oil paintings to spotting the 400-year-old fountain as your eye wanders through to the elegant central courtyard, Rosselli is a spectacular piece of living history. The service and amenities do well to reflect the fact this was once the residence of a noble goldsmith with personal butlers upon arrival and a Michelin-starred restaurant for refined dinners while the namesake’s contemporary perspective is clearly reflected in the eclectic fusion of styles running throughout the hotel.
