Personal service. A boutique hotel never has a huge room capacity; in fact, they rarely have more than 150 rooms. But the most important difference between regular and a boutique hotel is in Malta is the relationship between the guests and the employee. In boutique hotels the employees often know the name of all guests and treat them all individually.
Location. This is a key factor. Most boutique hotels are in the downtown area of a busy city or in special resort destinations. City location is not only important because of the comfort of the guests but also because of the image. It is also a requirement to have some attractions just near to the hotel.
Facilities. Especially for large towns and cities boutique hotels technology is an important factor. Electronic devices such as computers, flat-screen televisions and iPad and iPod docking stations are not uncommon in the best boutique hotels.
