Valletta is the capital of the island nation of Malta. A harbor city, Valletta preserves much of its 16th-century architectural heritage built under the Hospitallers.

With its large array of shops, catering establishments, entertainment venues, and culture, Malta's capital has what it takes to capture people's imagination.

Though, I have never been to Valletta or Malta, when planning our possible upcoming holidays next travels to Malta I decided to look on hotel offers in Malta, this time looking to travel with a little baby girl. It's interesting to observe that family friendly hotels are in fact more expensive than hotels for couples.

In today's article - top 10 family friendly hotels in Valletta, Malta.
