AX The Saint John was AX Group’s first boutique hotel, and it commenced operations in 2017. The Merchants Street property had been acquired by the Group a year prior, and it had previously been a merchant’s residence and shop. Since then, the Group refashioned the historic property into a modern, hospitable setting while preserving the building’s fabric.
The unveiling of the hotel brought life to the 17th-century building, and now AX The Saint John is one of the finest boutique hotels in Valletta. Each of the hotel’s 19 rooms combines luxury, technology and style. The hotel exudes an urban industrial feel with exposed brick and natural materials that combine on-trend style with luxury and the latest in-room technology.
The boutique hotel is ideal for business travellers as it features two private meeting rooms that can accommodate 16 people theatre style or 18 people as a boardroom. Both rooms are fully equipped with high-specification audio-visual devices, wi-fi facilities and hot-desking services.
AX The Saint John is also home to the popular Cheeky Monkey Gastropub – the second Cheeky Monkey-branded property operated by AX Group, with the first being the successful flagship Cheeky Monkey Gastropub in Qawra.
