“Loved the location”

We stayed here for 5 days and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The apartment is spacious with high ceilings and is ideal for 2 people. The bedroom is well furnished, as is the sitting room/dining room. The kitchen is showing its age a little bit. The balcony is small, but is a great place to breakfast with the sun shining directly onto it and the magnificent panoramic view over the harbour is breathtaking. The bathroom could do with a little makeover, i.e. hand held shower, not very satisfactory, and the bath itself is showing its age. The apartment was spotlessly clean. Being in the centre of Valetta and on the harbour, it was a bit noisy, but after the first night of wondering what the noise was about (boats coming and going through the night) we got used to it. The location is perfect for shopping, buses, sight seeing, and for those in need of a little exercise!. We would certainly stay here again on any return visit to Malta. The owner Jasper de Trafford is a gentleman to his fingertips.

“Very Comfortable-Fabulous View”

This was a lovely apartment - fabulous location, stunning view. It had everything we needed plus wonderful hosts. You do need to be OK with stairs. Highly recommended!

“live the maltese way in this apartment”

person found this review helpful

we were totally in love with this apartment the week we stayed it made us feel part of the valletta scene. Totally surrounded by maltese families the position of the apartment could not have been better with superb views over Grand Harbour. Although the balcony was quite small it was big enough to sit and have breakfast with an aspect that you will find hard to beat. Everything you needed was there, the owners were lovely people who were helpful and caring and made sure we had everything we needed. I don't think the stairs would suit everyone but we are in our sixties and we managed Ok.If I had one thing on the negative side to say it is I am six foot two and found the bed a bit short. On the booking side this went very smoothly and the taxi firm reccomended by the family are very good and new exactly where to go which could be tricky in Valletta.

“Wonderful views.”
Reviewed June 1, 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We have visited Malta several times in the past and always stayed in hotels so for this trip we decided to rent a flat. How pleased we are that we chose Admirals Apartment. The flat is really well equipped, furnished in the traditional Maltese manner and the views over the Grand Harbour are stunning. No better place than this to enjoy a leisurely breakfast or a glass of wine whilst watching the activity in the harbour. There are many restaruants nearby, we had a good meal at the China Garden on the Waterfront, where they served the best lemon chicken we have ever had, also enjoyed a lovely meal and good service at D'Office in Archbishop Street.
Fleur kindly booked our taxi for our arrival and departure, the firm she used, Percius, were excellent. Jasper met us on our arrival and made us feel very welcome and the night before our departure he telephoned to check we had enjoyed our visit and to confirm our taxi reservation which we greatly appreciated. We will visit Malta again and will definately choose to stay here instead of a hotel.

“Charming apartment with excellent value for money”
Reviewed October 3, 2011 for a stay in June 2011

I've never written a review before but this place really deserves some praise so here goes...I stayed here for 4 days with my boyfriend for a romantic break from London in June. Fleur who owns the flats with her husband arranged our transport from the airport, even though our flight was delayed by 3 hours the taxi was there and waiting for us. When we arrived in Valletta Fleur was there to meet us and show us to the flat. What can I say, what an amazing view! The flat is part of a converted town house that sits on the old city wall and has a view across the harbour and out to sea, we arrived as the sun was going down and the whole city glows pink! It's amazing! Fleur and jasper are amazing hosts, the fridge came stocked with a few things to get us going and you could ask for no better tourist information service! They seem to know everything about Malta and where to go and what to see! The location of the flat is fantastic, aside from the view it is literally on the doorstep of the main attractions of the city. All in all, it was an amazing break for us and staying in this flat really made it for us.

“Simply wonderful”
Reviewed September 29, 2011 for a stay in September 2011

If you're after brand new, sparkly, and ultra modern then this isn't for you. It is a 'proper' stone built apartment that is exactly as advertised on the valletta flats website. It's location is perfect for exploring Valletta, It's a short walk (in different directions) from the bus terminal and water taxis to explore further afield. The flat itself has lovely tiled and stone floors, shuttered windows, double doors. It's spacious, but small enough to feel at home. It has everything you need and more. And the view - the view is worth every penny of the exceptionally reasonably price.
Jasper and Fleur were great hosts . Right from my first email to book the apartament they have been really helpful - Jasper met us with the keys and some milk and bread to get us started, and Fleur visited the night before we left to return the security deposit and gave us some good tips for future visits. The flat is so well equipped, including the visitor information box, that we didn't need to contact Jasper/Fleur during the week but I'm sure, based on the contact we did have, the service would have been top notch if we had.
Our lasting memory will be sitting on the balcony with a bottle of local wine (Melquart - very good), a bowl of olives, pasta etc. - until we go back... as soon as possible next year.

“A room with a view !”
Reviewed September 22, 2011 for a stay in August 2011

We certainly would recommend this to all who are eager the discover Valletta and Malta with still a great deal of comfort and freedom. The appartment had everything we needed, from kitchen to bathroom. Comfortable sofas, a range of books, DVD player for the lost hours... Nicely done. The suite also had the advantage of being close the the centre of Valletta, close to shops and the central bus station. We could do everything by foot.
the most stunning thing was of course the view of the Grand Harbour! We could stare at the changing light and scenery all day long. Seeing the big cruise ships pass by, enjoy fireworks (almost every night in summer, yes, yes).
If there is a thing that might need some changing, it would be the bed. And maybe it would be nice to have some aircon for the hottest hours of the day.
Still, our honeymoon was a success!
