“Modern apartment in an historical setting”
Reviewed January 14, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Lovely modern apartment,with new beds and fittings so very comfortable.
Second visit for us,Malta in winter is great plenty to see and do without too many tourists.
Apartment is on second floor so good views of Grand Harbour from the living room and small balcony.
Very spacious apartment with good settees and chairs, free and good WiFi and all the TV programs you could want.
Kitchen is also spacious with all modern new appliances and plenty of spare food and tea coffee and such like.
Vittoriosso is a lovely area to wander through and is so historic,also good eating places only a stroll from the front door.
Being met at the airport and the gift basket and wine were much appreciated.
So would highly recommend this place to anybody who likes a bit of luxury in a historic setting.

“Luxury”
Reviewed October 18, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this apartment, would not have traded my stay for the world and me and my wife have been raving about our stay in beautiful Vittorioso since we got back. Hopefully everyone else can have the same incredible stay that we did. The medieval city was breathtaking with a vast array of restaurants and cafes near by. Liz the local manager and Irene the booking agent made our stay really easy and enjoyable. The quality of the apartment was incredible and the specifications were exactly as described on the website, everything we needed was provided.

I highly recommend this property.

“Beware when renting this apartment”
Reviewed October 9, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We arrived in this apartment at 2200hrs on the first night of our holiday expecting to be met by the apartment manager as arranged but she didn't turn up. We spoke to her by telephone to be told that one of the two main doors to the apartment was not locking. Despite her assurances that 'Malta is safe' and it would be okay to sleep in unlocked accommodation we chose to take the British Consulates advice and move to a hotel for the first night instead. The apartment manager told us that 'the owner' (who lives in Australia would contact us in the morning to arrange us taking up residence. Instead we awoke to an e-mail which told us that 'the owner' had arbitrarily cancelled our booking on the basis that "the apartment was not up to our standard" and that we would receive a refund of our €900 rental and €450 security deposit (ironic given that the apartment didn't lock) immediately. We finally got our refund three weeks later but only after much prevarication from 'the owner'. We spent the first day of our holiday trying to sort acquire alternative accommodation and as well as losing this day also ended up another £284.00 out of pocket on the hotel we moved to on the first night, a taxi to our alternative accommodation, the extra cost of the accommodation and currency loss in the refund. We made (what we believe to be) a reasonable request to 'the owner' for repayment of this sum but suddenly 'the owner' told us that the apartment was in fact owned by a company and she was not empowered to deal with this. What is strange about this is that the initial refund came from 'the owners' personal bank account! We have since received an abusive and threatening e-mail from a company who now claim to own the apartment accusing us of extortion and looking to cancel our booking! They seem to have lost sight of the fact that it was 'the owner' who cancelled the booking when we were simply expecting to have the door lock fixed and move in a day late. 'The owners' name is Irene Crane and the company who now claim to own the apartment is Fortiori Enterprises.

Thank you for your comments we are sorry you chose not to stay with us.
We do say in our arrival letter that check in is 15:00hrs, when arriving outside these hrs our local manager will contact you by phone and make a time that suits you to meet you and greet you.
Our apartment is very secure, we are part of the Vittoriosa Marina Complex and have patrol security guards 24/7 as well as CCV cameras 24/7, the door in question was not the main door to the apartment. We would never risk the safety and security of our guests.
We were very disappointed to hear from you the following day advising us that you decided to cancel your reservation, we then provided you with a full refund although it was outside the terms of our agreement and organised free of charge for our car and driver to take you to a hotel of your choice.
We are very sorry that you chose not to stay with us our aim at all times is to provide a service second to none as shown in all our posted reviews from satisfied clients.

“Maltastic- best appartment and service yet!”
Reviewed October 2, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Sept 21st- 30th 2012

My husband and I have stayed in Malta 4 times over the last 4 years and this stay ( Sept 21st - 30th) was the best value for money yet!

We thought the location and air conded luxurious appartment which was only a 5 min walk away from the lovely historic town centre of Birgu was perfect for tourists who like to really feel they are in a foriegn country but have all the perks of quailty facilities on their door step -especially since we are used to quailty London venues. The main things to mention are the excellent restrauants which were resonably priced, swimming in the beautiful harbour surrounded by postcard views, museums and other historic places to visit on the door step,travel by boat or hop on/off tour bus or small boat to visit the island which is also only 5 mins walk away,free parking if you decide to hire a car (as we did),excellent servive by Ivan( who we followed in our airport hire car when we arrived), perfect professional service at all stages from booking to leaving by Irene the owner and Liz the caretaker and a large beautifully decorated flat fit for a family ,sharers or couple (like us)who like space to roam around at home.
In the past- we've stayed at upmarket hotels and other flats in Malta but the quailty of this flat was the best yet and at under half the cost of the posh hotel!

Mark my words- this flat made our 4th stay to Malta -Maltastic- and when we return in 2013 we will definately book this as a home from home!
(Irene could you also ensure guests are able to have the key for the main door so they can access block 10 from the harbour please?- the other entrance is fine but entering this way from the harbour would be an added bonus. By the way,if you ever decide to sell the flat -let me know !)
Thanks Pam and Matt

“A beautiful apartment, equipped to a very high standard and extremely comfortable.”
Reviewed September 25, 2012 for a stay in August 2012

This is a gem - the apartment overlooks the creek on one side, with access to swimming so an excellent position for children to snorkel / explore. On the other side is the marina with plenty of restaurants. We were met at the airport and arriving at the apartment were met with a welcome pack - nothing was too much trouble and Irene was very professional arranging the booking. The area is very pretty, steeped in history and in the old part of Malta. The food was fantastic, locals very friendly and everything was very reasonable. We traveled the island by bus which was an excellent way to see the island, but car hire is good value and there is an underground car park at the apartment. Can't recommend it enough, we were a family of five and it suited us perfectly.
