“The House of Character is great!”
Reviewed February 27, 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Our family of four had a delightful stay in this lovely home.
The House of Character is situated by a park which is next door to the Mdina Gate.
It is perfectly sited for visiting the Old City. It is also perfectly sited for public transport, taxis, Horse Carriage rides and the Hop on Bus. The area is quiet and clean.

We were told that this house is the oldest existing house in the area ,but inside it is modern and comfortable .Our hosts made us feel very welcome ,and provided a fridge with far more contents than usual.

We thoroughly recommend this accommodation for a holiday

“Great location, comfortable & clean, lots of character.”
Reviewed July 13, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Suited us perfectly because of the short stroll to the old town. Well appointed & clean property with everything we need for a 2 night stay. Comfortable bed in a very small bedroom with lovely stone walls. Very friendly and helpful owners.

“Great stay, truly spectacular!”
Reviewed January 20, 2016 for a stay in March 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this beautiful and unique house. Ian did a very good job restoring the house for sure. Our experience at Malta might be very different if we didn't stay here at this beautiful city!

Also thanks Cremona for the little tour and advices to make us feel the most welcome. We truly had a wonderful time here! Big thank you!

Two night is certainly not long enough in this lovely house, with its wonderful feeling for space. Thank you also for all the fresh food and welcome – very much appreciated.

“Beautiful house in a pretty and lively little town close to dramatic cliffs and atmospheric walled city.”
Reviewed October 19, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Our stay at the house was very pleasant and comfortable.
Our hosts were also exceptional and were there to welcome us and show us around, give us tips for restaurant and best places to visit.
Very friendly and flexible.
We especially loved the decor and the lighting at night , very enchanting with a lot of candles for us to use.
The terrace was also a great place to unwind and catch the breeze.
In all we had a marvellous time!

Marthese & Ian made us so welcome.
The home was just great and so centrally located.
Medina and Rabat were some of the highlights of our stay in Malta.
