After lots of research we plan to stay in Valletta for 4 nights in an apartment. It is in a walking street but does have some steps. No breakfast ,no views and looks to be in a dark street. I chose it due to the low price., large size and proximity to the bus depot.
Friends have returned from Valletta ant they advised us to stay elsewhere, They stated it was a wonderful Historic area to visit but thought it was too steep and too busy . Not as many restaurants as other areas. They did not see Valletta of an evening as they stayed elsewhere.
On the television In Australia the other night it showed the area Kalkara. It looked very nice ,lots of fishing boats, not so busy and not so many stairs!! We are getting older and steps are getting a bit of a problem!
Has it a poor bus service? Did read that comment today! Did a Google search and found a bus stop not far from the B&B in Kalkara. If the bus service is not that regular or reliable , then there is a problem!
I believe there would be enough restaurants to keep us going for 4 nights! We like to wander around the streets of an early evening.
The place I have found has views overlooking the water (not every room I guess!) but does have a beautiful top floor breakfast and sitting area with sea views. It is on Triq Marina and is a room with no cooking facilities and includes breakfast.
The price of the Kalkara Room is $200 AUD cheaper than the apartment in Valletta we are looking at.!!
We plan to do walking tours of Valletta, Senglea ,Vittoroisa and bus it to Rabat /Mdat . Boat trip on the harbour etc. We can travel to Valletta by boat from the B&B too. Might even get on a Red Tourist hop on Hop off bus.
Would appreciate peoples comments about Staying in "Kalkara" rather than "Valletta" for our 4 nights. I understand people have different views about staying in areas, and I would appreciate all comments good and bad. I can then work out which area and which apartment/B&B suits us the most.
Looking forward to replies.
