“Malta- great place for a holiday”
Reviewed March 31, 2014 for a stay in March 2014

This was the first of 4 self catering accommodations we used in Malta on a 2 week holiday, (the others we organised on the hoof with our iPad, which is dead easy). As far as the flat is concerned, we would pretty much echo the previous 3 reviewers so won't rewrite much of what they said. Though we particularly liked the old tiles. It was a bit parky when we were there too, but we too had the heater which took the edge off. We only ate out once, at the Italian down on the dock front, and it was cracking. The local shops particularly the last one on the left up the road toward the square were good.
It is absolutely not necessary to take a car to Malta, in fact the traffic on some roads is very busy so driving must be a bit of a trial, and we researched our way around by bus before departure from the UK. We got a bus from the airport to Valletta and changed to a number 3 (I think it wasI to il Birgu. A week's ticket is €6.50 which is ridiculously cheap. We didn't find anywhere on Malta where buses don't go. Most of them display where you are, great for visitors.
We havn't given the flat 5 rings, although it was very good value, because it is not "luxury" as described. It is well appointed though.
One niggle which is not the owner's fault and has not affected our score is that paying the deposit through Paypal leads to a significant reduction in the amount returned due to Paypal's multiple charges.

“Atmospheric – nice location – well equipped”

Mariella organised for us to be picked up from the airport, which was great as the driver saw us to the door of the flat, situated in Birgu, across a narrow bay from Valletta (well connected to central Valletta by 2 buses and an irregular ferry). The flat is spacious and very atmospheric. The feature I liked best were the beautifully tiled floors and the high ceilings. There is no overload of chintz and frills, which is nice, and the kitchen has everything you need (including a little espresso-pot). It was early March and we hit a cold snap so we were very glad to have a little heater as there is no central heating. The flat is great to explore Birgu and the Hypogeum (a 10-minute bus-ride away) and there are a couple of really great restaurants nearby. The bars in the marina were very sleepy as the season hadn't started yet but it must get lively in the summer. There are some characterful community bars on the main square with low prices and a real feel of authenticity plus some small shops selling fruit&veg and bread. The bus stop into Valletta (and to the airport) is a mere 5 minute-walk from the flat.

“Perfect for two people, one minute to harbour”

person found this review helpful

Super fast and uncomplicated booking, Mariella is very friendly and very helpful. Airport pickup was super, some snacks and water in the fridge when we arrived. The apartment is newly renovated, tastefully furnished and spotlessly clean. All appliances worked perfectly and all necessary equipment was at hand. The apartment is on the second floor, the bedroom looks over a pedestrian street so no loud cars. The street at the front was generally quiet. Plenty of space to unpack. Large shower. One minute down to the harbor, or to the town square - both offer bars, cafés and restaurants, plus small local shops.

“Very nice apartment in historical and quiet location”

The apartment was very nice, clean and luminous. It is situated in a beautiful historical area in the center of Birgu, close to the Maritime Museum, but the bus stop for Valletta is close. It could get a little hot during the day, but there are fans in every room that solve the problem perfectly... Mariella was friendly and available.
