We were guests a couple of days ago and really liked the family style and breakfast idea. Chiara, the owner and manager is a a warm hearted women trying her best to satisfy all her guests. We though recognized that some guests were very loud in the house. A french family had two misbehaved kids of which the little one... More

The architecture drew me to stay here, but if you have difficulty with old, stone houses, this will deliver.. although only I, not my companion, noticed, there was the smell of moisture in the stone that one finds in old stone houses. That aside, it's a rabbit warren of lovely, well-appointed rooms, with lovely beds, and friendly hosts and their... More

We stayed here because it is close to the airport, and the Temples and the Hypogeum. We were picked up from the airport, for a charge of 20euros, at 11.30pm. The guesthouse is a labyrinth and the circulation areas are very cluttered with the owners' possessions (they do have 5 children!) Some might find this cosy, we found it untidy.... More

Nice renovated old house in the old neighborhood. Close to some attractions (Hypogeum + Tarxien Temples). Very friendly and talkative hosts. No problem with parking close to the property. You stay in the big family house (five children). If you prefer to have a full privacy at quiet place, this property is not for you. If you accept it, you... More

Nice old town of Tarxien and the family was very warm and kind. The house is a characteristic maltese. Breakfast is excellent with various sorts of homemade jam. Frank is very nice host to talk to. Would go again

We booked a room with a shared bathroom as it appeared on booking.com like it would have a patio or outside space with it, after all, patio is not mentioned on their other rooms on the same site, but it is with this room. It was disappointing not to have associated outside space, perhaps it meant the central courtyard on... More

Spent one week with very warm family in lovely b'n'b, beautifully decorated and comfortable in summer thanks to its thick stone walls (and AC on request). Delicious breakfasts from friendly and talkative Chiara. Home-made food, including for dinner (as an option). Very helpful husband and very pleasant children too. We really enjoyed it!

My sister and I enjoyed our stay very much. It was a treat to be immersed in a family situation with guests from many countries. The house is interesting and comfortable, although we did go for the optional air conditioning after a couple of nights in July. I would caution people to be up front with the proprietors about any... More

The room is nice and clean, the hosts are very nice. The room, the furniture and the environment is specific to Malta, the bus stops are nearby. I recommend this place for those who like homely atmosphere. The breakfast is delicious, Frank and Chiara are very helpful.
