This 2-storey 100 years old townhouse give you some authenticity in artificial town of Sliema. It is nicely restored by Swedish owner, which adds some Scandinavian touch. 3 guest rooms with own bathrooms, roof terrace, courtyard, breakfast room gives enough space for comfortable stay. Perfect breakfast and functioning wi-fi as well.

A perfect guesthouse for us that want to be close to resturants and beaches, but off from traffic and noice from the city. A tasteful breakfast as a start of the day after a good night sleep. We are already looking forward to going back and meetIng our caring hosts. Catharina & Hans

We were even invited to share an evening meal with them in their gorgeous courtyard on our arrival. Much appreciated. The traditional Sliema house has been beautifully... More
