Only a few paces from the sea, and a few minutes walk from the centre of Valletta and all the sights! Not in a particularly tourist area which we preferred - it's a couple of streets away from restaurants and bars so reasonably quiet at night but still easy to get back to in the evening. Authentic Maltese apartment - plenty of space, in an old traditional building but modernised and simple but good quality furnishings. Everything was clean and in good condition.
Free decent speed wifi (which my daughter was pleased about!). There is pay-by-card electricity but the initial amount provided was enough for us - and we had the water heaters on all the time and even the air conditioning a couple of evenings.
Each bedroom has a small balcony - with views down to the sea - and as it's a narrow street not much direct sun which would be a blessing in the summer (you can always walk a few yards to the shore anyway)
There's plenty of storage in the bedrooms and kitchen.
The only (slightly) negative points are that it's on the top floor (no lift) and the ceilings are high so it's a LONG way up... but on the other hand this means the views are better, and it's quieter. Most (all?) the other apartments appeared to be residential - again we preferred this rather than being in a block of just holiday rentals. Maybe some more instructions would be useful - we took a bit of time to find the switch for the second shower's water pump, and although it said there's a supermarket and baker's nearby maybe some directions would have been useful - but it was part of the fun searching for them!
Being an old stone building it would probably be nice and cool in the summer too.
The main plus point is really the location - right in the centre of the city but just away from all the noise and bustle if you want a bit of peace.
Would definitely like to stay again when we come back to Malta!
Neither bright nor luxurious as it is described!
The property is a total desapointment in every detail.
Our stay in Malta was really pleasant and we enjoyed both the natural beauties and the historical and artistic aspects of the island. As to the apartment everything was all right except for the little inconvenience (the night we arrived) caused by the lack of the light bulb in the stairway. We really had some difficulties in reaching the third floor (there is no lift). Anyway Bronia was ready to solve the problem next day. She is a kind and reliable person.
Very nice apartment, close to buses, city center, small grocery and bakery. Very clean, well decorated . Two large bedrooms and a small one. Large living room and dining room.
The booking process was easy and straightforward. We had confirmation from the owner very quickly. Nicola arranged for a taxi to meet us at the airport and the driver had the keys to the apartment and a spare card for the electric meter for us.
The apartment was like two flats side by side, each having it's own bathroom. The kitchen and dining room were in one side and the living room and utility in the other. There was also a bed settee in the utility area. It was very clean and well equipped. A slight problem with the water heater was very quickly sorted out after a phone call to Bronia.
Location is excellent with a small shop nearby for essentials and just five minutes to the centre of the city.
The only downside is that as this is an old building there is no lift and there are 67 steps up to the apartment but as Valletta is very hilly you soon get used to it!
