... if you want self-catering accommodation in Valetta. This was our first visit to Malta; we stayed in apartment 4 and found everything to be just as presented on the web-site. It was excellently situated for partial harbour views and the Upper Barrakka Gardens plus easy and fast access to all local amenities (including the bus station) and sites of interest. This part-serviced (no washing-up or tidying / cleaning of personal possessions) apartment was a perfect blend of ancient and modern, with a great shower room (including body wash, loo rolls, floor-level night lights and frequent towel changes), comfortable beds (linen changed weekly) - a part-screened double on the main floor with two singles on a mezzanine (up a spiral staircase) but be aware that access to the shower room is via the main bedroom area. Good basic kitchenette facilities : a two-ring hob (plenty of cook pans provided) but no oven / grill or microwave (not an issue as eating out is reasonably priced or, with the availability of fresh local produce, home-dining is easy and enjoyable for a change). Everything was very clean and comfortable and the daily servicing kept it that way. Franck, the owner, met us on arrival (he had arranged free transfer from the airport and also organized a taxi for our return journey) and spent some time telling us what to find and where, both in the apartment and in the immediate area, e.g. food shops, restaurants, travel facilities etc; he could not have been more welcoming or helpful and could be contacted by `phone or e-mail throughout our stay had we needed him - most reassuring. The free WiFi was very useful and much appreciated; also the satellite TV. Although we didn`t need them, both air-con and heating were available for use. We toured the island quite extensively during our fortnight`s holiday (the hop-on, hop-off buses [tip : buy tickets before boarding for a discount] covered a lot of ground and were excellent value for money, including a free harbour boat trip) and at no point did we see any place where we would have preferred to stay. If we paid a return visit we would again base ourselves in Valetta (central location, peaceful and quiet out of normal hours; full of history in its own right but with fast and easy access to the rest of the island - the bus service is very good) and would have no hesitation in going back to one of Franck`s apartments; we have already recommended them to friends and family if they should be considering a break in Malta. All in all, a memorable holiday which was perfectly complemented by this excellent accommodation - well done Franck and thank you!
