The house is located on Battery street, within the baroque walled city of Valletta. Perched on St Anthony's bastion, the house commands spectacular views over the Grand Harbour. The key, since time immemorial, to Malta's strategic importance, this harbour was made famous once again during the second world war when it was home to the British Empire's Mediterranean fleet. Though on the water's edge, Battery street is also a stone's throw from the main historical attractions within this World Heritage city.

The historic capital city of Valletta is a cultural gem packed with baroque churches, museums, auberges and other architectural masterpieces. Built by the Grand Master La Vallette following his victory over the Ottomans in the Great Siege of 1565, this city is a monument to th...

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in August 2015

Jasper, who owns the letting, was there to greet us an very helpful. The wifi worked fine, but was a little slow. The view was magnificent, so grab your wine and sit on the balcony. Shower really needs improving... a new shower head would be a good idea. It's a short walk to central Valetta, which is an architectural beauty.... more

Management response:

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you made the most of the balcony and view. We appreciate your feedback and have now changed the shower head as suggested. Hope to see you again. Regards Fleur and Jasper more

I could sit on the balcony for hours and just watch the ships go by and enjoy a little sea breeze! With the old style of the flat (high ceilings and old tiles on the floor) you just feel like a knight in the historic Valletta! The kitchen offers everything you need for a little cooking and the flat is... more

My partner and I stayed here for a week in August. The photos of the apartment don't do it justice. It's spacious with high ceilings and in a lovely area of Valetta around 5 minutes walk to the main street and 10 minutes to the bus station. There's no air con, but a breeze comes through easily and there's a... more

Additional amenities & feature info
It is not only the view that makes The Admiral's Suite unique. Although recently converted, historic features have been maintained and the house boasts luxuriously high ceilings supported by long wooden beams and traditional painted tile floors. Being on the water's edge the house also enjoys a pleasant Mediterranean breeze.

The apartment is kitted out with all the mod cons, but great care has been taken to preserve the character of 51 Battery Street. The furniture has all been carefully sourced from markets and antique shops across the islands and is traditional and in keeping with this historic townhouse.

The bathroom is classically decorated with marble floors and the kitchen is well equipped and overlooks the quiet and picturesque steps of Battery street.

How to get there
Airport: Malta International Airport: 2.5 mi
Ferry: Valletta: 0.2 mi
Airmalta, Easyjet and Ryan Air all have regular flights to Malta. Valletta is about 10 minutes away from the airport by bus (which regularly run directly to Valletta) or taxi. A taxi will cost EURO 15/20.

If you want to hire a car, I suggest you get in touch with Percius Car Hire (www.percius.com), which has been long established and is reliable.

It is also a good idea to book a taxi through them if you do not hire a car. As always in the Med, if you take a taxi from the taxi stand at the airport make sure you agree on the price before you embark!
