We had a week in this apartment and consider ourselves very lucky to have stayed there. The view over the bay looking is fantastic. The apartment is very spacious and we loved the location - short walk to the heart of Valletta and many attractions and restaurants. I would say its about a 10 minute walk to the bus terminus just past the Gates of Valletta which was not a problem. We found the bus service more reliable than indicated on some older reviews and blogs and they will take you to most of the island very cheaply. The apartment is also very close to where you can catch the ferry to Sliema (a little too touristy for me).
Keep in mind when booking you will pay government tax and electricity on top of the tariff but these did not amount to too much. Lucianne is easily contactable if you have any queries/issues.
This apartment is highly recommended and I will always remember my stay here.
The apartment was roomy ,very comfortable,,all the facilities worked well, shower pressure perhaps a little low ,but it’s part of a very old building,but all the appliances worked well and were easy to operate,the views over the harbour was stunning,,Lucianne was delightful and ever helpful,had arranged a very good taxi service to meet us at the airport .and she was there to met us when we arrived,We were aware before booking ,the there were several flights of stairs to the apartment. ,but it was worth the climb, great apartment great holiday
This is a wonderful apartment overlooking the seafront at Valletta towards Sliema. The facilities are excellent - soft comfy bed, big sofa to relax on, nice big windows.
Kitchen is great and lots of utensils and tableware.
There is a excellent swimming area right below the flat that's accessible by a tunnelled stairway.
The main town is mere minutes away.
The host was fantastic and very friendly and pleasant to deal with.
Overall a most excellent place to stay.
The apartment has great views over Marsamxett harbour toward Sliema. Its situated on the 2nd floor of the block but has its own secure front door on the street at ground level. Inside is everything you could need - good sized kitchen with breakfast bar; nice big sofa; comfy bed towards the back of the apartment (away from any street noise); spacious shower room.
Lucianne was extremely helpful both before booking and when we arrived. She offered to arrange a taxi from the airport for us, which I glad we we accepted. Although it cost €20 (rather than the standard €15 for a white taxi) it was worth it because the driver knew how to find the apartment and you avoided the queues at the airport to first buy a taxi ticket and then get in a taxi. The driver Joram also knew how to avoid the apparent gridlock on leaving the airport! We didn't have any problems during our stay, but I got the impression Lucianne would have sorted them out straight away. She allowed us to have a late checkout and we were able to leave our cases in the apartment even longer until our pick up time. Really great service!
With the apartment being on the edge of Valletta it meant an uphill walk to get into the centre. By the most direct route it was a few tens of steps then a gentle slope 5 to 10 minutes to a large number of bars and restaurants.
It was a great base to explore Malta from as you were a 15 minute walk to the bus station, from which everywhere on the island is under an hour away. I recommend the €15 12-journey cards (which can be shared, you just have to tap it for each person). Its valid for unlimited travel within a two hour period which the bus system calculates automatically, so you can change buses but pay only one fare (or go somewhere and come back within two hours).
We didn't hire a car but if we had parking nearby would have been tricky, but this seems to be true for most central locations in Valletta. There were spaces out front early and late on, but not often during the middle of the day.
Overall, great apartment in a good location with a great host.
Beautiful apartment with spectacular view of harbor, well situated for roaming in Valletta. Host, Lucianne, could not have been more helpful or friendly.
