“Short walk to the Upper Barracca Gardens”

person found this review helpful

We have just stayed in this convenient location, a short walk from the Upper Barracca Gardens and with views of the harbour. We were withing walking distance of everything inside the old city of Valletta.
The apartment is simply furnished, but with everything you could require from tourist guides, books to read, TV and music as well as a stove and fridge if you wish to self cater.
The host, Michael is very helpful - he spent over an hour with us on our first day, giving us information about the apartment and Valletta itself. He recommended some great cafes and restaurants, well patronised by the locals.
We were very happy with the location and the clean liittle apartment we called home for a few days.

“Very comfortable bed/sit with fabulous location.”
Reviewed November 5, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

people found this review helpful

Our appartment couldn't have been more comfortable or in a better location. It comprised a small but very functional kitchen which lacked for nothing in the way of utensils etc and included basics for cooking (e.g. oil, salt & pepper, fresh bread and milk etc. supplied by the owner). Down one step but separated by a breakfast bar was the area containing the bed, TV, sitting area etc. Then alongside the bed were the French Doors onto the little balcony, just perfect for happy hour! Sadly the view of the Grand Harbour from our balcony was partially obscured by a building, however our sideview was wonderful. We loved this place; It is small but functional, spotlessly clean and best of all, is in a fabulous location. The bed is very comfortable (by Australian standards). The bathroom is tiny but perfectly adequate for two and is in perfect working order. This appartment is walking distance to most of the attractions of Valetta (although some of the streets of Valetta are quite steep). It is also an easy walk (although hilly) to the bus terminal to catch public transport for sites further away (all very easy!). The appartment owner is extremely hospitable and made us feel very welcome and very much at home. He has a wealth of information about great restaurants and worthwhile sites to see. We really enjoyed his company (along with his cat George) when he was out and about working around his properties. I have no hesitation in recommending this appartment and would certainly go back given the opportunity.

From prelimary enquiry to arrival, the owner, Michael, was helpful and friendly.
He provided us with suggestions of where to eat and buy groceries and the welcoming coffee was most appreciated. He gave us a contact number in case we had any queries and even booked our return taxi to the airport. We stayed in Apartment 2 and would gladley stay again.

“Go for the View”

We stayed in Apartment 1 and spent many happy hours enjoying the great view from the verandah, don't miss the "golden hour" for photos as the sun is setting. Michael was very helpful, providing milk, bread etc. on our arrival and giving us the breakdown on restaurants and shops. We used La Mere which was great however we were disappointed on Saturday evening as we had not booked. Wembley stores was good for bread, Micallef in Triq St. Paul was fine for milk, water and wine, M&S was a disappointment for food. Michael helped ou out splendidly with our late evening departure.

“Wonderful stay in very central flat”
Reviewed August 12, 2011 for a stay in May 2011

people found this review helpful

Large bedroom/sitting room/kitchen, with ensuite shower. Nicely furnished, and one the ground floor of an old building. Quiet area - very central for attractions in town . There is a balcony for breakfast and having tea/coffee on which includes a view of the Grand Harbour (but note - the window looks directly out to a house - the view is one the left hand side of the balcony).

Our stay here was very comfortable. Michael the owner was extremely helpful, and helped us to find the right places to visit in town, and also took us to and from the airport for a small charge.

If you want to do any self catering, then make sure you know where the stores and market are - there are only a few places in town that sell food items. The Empire Stores is good, but fairly expensive. There are many restaurants and cafes in town.

This was an ideal home for a couple to rest while in Malta. A nice place, short distance to Valletta centre, our own balcony and kitchen. Better than any hotel could be.

“What a view!!!!”

My daughter ( Vicky) and I stayed in this apartment for a week ( 04.06.11 to 11.06.11). I had booked it with my partner who died suddenly and my daughter decide to come and keep me company. Michael arranged for an extra bed in the apartment, he also provided the basics for us, bread,water,milk, tea, coffee and fruit juice as we arrived late on Saturday evening. The apartment was clean and well equpped. It is everything it says on the website. You could not find a better landlord, Michael was so helpful and friendly. The view over the Grand Harbour is to die for. Five minutes walk away from shopping, restaurants and buses. Oh the Maltese bus experience, not to be missed, unfortunately they are disappearing on 3 July to be taken over by Arriva. Cleaner, more comfortable, I know but not so much fun. I do hope Arriva will be as cheap...54 cents for an hours busride to Golden Bay.,47 cents to Marsaxlokk. We also took a tour of the island by Hop on, Hop off sightseeing bus, also very good. We had no problems at all with any transport, if you treat people properly and are polite and use timetables , no issues. You would not believe the number of people we saw who did not know which number bus to get on , what times they were and then complained to the driver and never said please or thank you. Of course buses are late sometimes, traffic happens in this country too!! A fantastic holiday all in all and I will be back , I have seen most of the sights but just for a relaxing holiday I would go again.
