Upon arrival we were told to head across the street from the apartments to the Hotel opposite to collect our keys. We were then told to head to the St. Georges hotel from there to pick up our keys but when we got there they didn't have them (bearing in mind that we had to drag our luggage to all of these places). We were then directed to an extremely obscure building (that we managed to find after searching around for a good 20 minutes) and go to the 4th floor to find the "reception" - reception was a closed door with a room number on it that looked like a hotel room from the outside; we had to ask the cleaners where it was.
When we finally got our keys we headed to our room and found that the only working socket was connected to our fridge, so we couldn't turn on any lights or charge our phones (resolved by a swap of keys). We also had to buy an English to European plug adaptor for the cooker, as it had a English plug with a European plug socket. Also the apartment only had a portable oven, a kettle, a sink, and a fridge - so we couldn't cook anything on a hob such as rice which severely limited our choice of meals, especially healthy ones.
The halls of the apartments were littered with fag butts, laundry, and general mess; not to mention the cockroach in our apartment and its dead friend under the stairs.
We were unimpressed with the bathroom as we had to hold the shower head over ourselves rather than having a stand, and the bathroom floor was always wet because the bathroom had no ventilation. This also meant that it had an unpleasant smell.
Do not be deceived by the apparance of a little flat screen TV in the living area, ours did not have any signal - not too much of a problem for us as we didn't need it.
On the upside, the beds were very comfortable, with clean soft sheets and a ceiling fan to keep us cool.
The location (bearing in mind that we are both 19 year olds) was perfect, with lots of clubs, bars and restaurants on our doorstep. Also, the buses were 1 euro 50 for an all day ticket that can take you on any bus to anywhere on the island - if you speak to your rep. you can ask them to label a map with the bus routes; this helped us A LOT.
We were located close to Valletta, Sliema, and St. Jullian's Bay - all of which are places that people travel across the island to see.
The holiday was good for the price.
Overall, we did really enjoy ourselves because, to be honest, we didn't really care about the service or the appearance of the apartments. We had a good time because of the location, the free wifi internet, and the cheap prices.
