Valletta is beautiful! The Old Mint apartments are well located in this beautiful city and the penthouse is spacious and cool with its cross ventilation. We were a party of four adults and sadly the quality of the bedrooms was not equal. I would describe this as a fabulous one bedroom place but a star or two less as two bedrooms.
On the plus side were:
Lift access
Well equipped
Comfy bed, comfy couch
Outdoor seating
Location
On the negative
Roof space exactly that ~ roof space. No real amenities up there.
Minimum in terms of extras supplied ~ eg 1 tea towel only provided and ironing board AWFUL
2nd bedroom basic
At this price wifi should be included and one shouldn't be bothered reading the electricity meter daily to ensure compliance
If a BBQ is provided, a means of operating it aka gas, should also be available
On balance we enjoyed our stay. Next stay in Valletta (and there will be a next one) will probably not be here. Sounds harsher than it should because this IS a good place but will
seek somewhere more Maltese.

“A very nice apartment”

The booking process was straightforward and handled professionally. As part of this process we pre-booked transfers between the airport and the apartment and our collection from and return to, the airport was flawless.
On arrival at the apartment we were given a very useful and informative briefing, including an explanation of the charging arrangements for electricity. As it happened we were well within the allowance included in the rental costs – however it should be noted that we didn’t eat in the apartment or use the air-conditioning units or the washing machine during our stay.
The apartment is well fitted with quality fixtures and fittings. The main living area is light and airy and has easy access to the outside balcony.
There were 4 in the party and for us “oldies” negotiating the tight spiral staircase to the sun terrace and the stone staircase to the lower bedroom was a little difficult. The main bedroom is spacious with plenty of storage space. The 2nd bedroom is much less spacious, for example one side of the double bed is against a wall and has no natural light to speak of, the bed was also quite high (over a metre off the ground) which could be difficult for some people to clamber up onto (maybe a step could be considered by the owner). A tip for people using this bedroom – use the lift to the second floor to transport suitcases etc, there is a small flight of stairs to the door and another 5 steps up to the bedroom .
The apartment is located about a 5 minute walk away from the Valletta to Sliema ferry service and about 10 minutes from Republic Street.

The booking process went smoothly and we met with Nicolina, the local property manager, at the appointed hour outside the property. A smooth elevator ride to the fourth floor and a brief and informative intro to the facilities ensued. The apartment is spacious, well designed and furnished to a good standard, in line with the online photos available. The second bedroom is adequate but could be described as 'occasional' given its quirky access and borrowed light from the internal lift/light shaft.
The two outside spaces were very good and much needed given the limited open spaces in Valletta. Exceptional views from the roof terrace to Sliema across the harbour together with unrestricted sun are available throughout the day. The dining terrace proved to be much more sunny and private than initially thought as the buildings opposite do not appear to be residential.
Many of the better rated restaurants are close by on Old Bakery St. and South St. though walking does demand some brief but steep ascents from the location which is also near to the Sliema ferry point.

Liked least - 200 euro cash deposit returned as we departed for the airport. Occasional sooty deposit on the roof terrace from the next door bakery chimney.

Liked best - Outside space and location/views

“Excellent”

The Penthouse is really lovely. The views from the dining room across to Tigne are stunning and one can see the boats going across from Sliema to Valletta. The apartment was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. The kitchen was superbly equipped with enough equipment to cook a four course meal! The only quibble was the lack of a handrail on the spiral staircase down to the second bedroom and I would not recommend the apartment to anyone unsteady on their feet, or a family with children. However, I think this is pointed out in the brochure. Nevertheless, a holiday in The Penthouse or indeed in any of the other apartments is well worth a visit. The building is very secure so no chance of any unauthorised person wandering in off the street. I would highly recommend a stay here.

“Excellent location, very clean and well appointed”
Reviewed 31 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Located close to a good selection of restaurants and a short walk to the bus station. Appartment is modern, clean and well equipped. On the equivalent of the 5th floor the lift was very practical.
The pre-visit comms were very good as was the check in and out process.
The only thing we would change was the air-con in the main bedroom, desirable at night in peak season, but is somewhat noisy. Instead we made do with a fan and opening the patio doors, but then had the early morning traffic noise. The unit in the second bedroom is very quiet and shows how unobtrusive it can be (i.e. easy to sleep with it on).
Our comments were noted - it this were changed it would be a 5 star rating from us.
