Apartment overview - owner's description
Our stylish and spacious waterfront self-catering apartment has a breathtakingly beautiful 180 degree panoramic view of the Grand Harbour and Three Cities. The apartment is situated at Dahlet Gnien is-Sultan ("the site of the Sultans Garden") beneath the bastions of Valletta and is a 2-minute stroll from the heart of the Old City. It sleeps up to 8 people (one double bedroom, one twin bedroom and two double sofa beds), has a well equipped kitchen with brand new appliances, washing machine/ironing facilities, bath/shower room plus separate second guest toilet, air-conditioning/heating, separate TV lounge/study area with cable TV, harbour view balcony, a telephone (for use with Easyline phone cards - a prepaid phone card available from most newsagents or Maltacom outlets) and a roof garden for sunbathing. There is street parking directly outside in a quiet cul-de-sac in a historic residential area. Parking outside the building will require parking tickets but there is a large 'park n ride' car park in nearby Floriana designed to keep traffic out of lovely Valletta, which is small enough to be explored on foot. The nearest bar is the delightful George's Bar (about 100 yards from apartment) where you will receive a 10% if you say you are a guest at our apartment. George's is famous for the jazz nights they hold every Friday during the summer months, with the steps outside the bar bedecked with cushions and candles as jazz lovers sit listening to local bands against the backdrop of the night view across the Grand Harbour. Magical!

Great location, excellent local contact, good price. Having a washer and a crib is highly convenient, too.
Furniture is in poor condition and overdue for an upgrade. Master bedroom bed was incredibly squeaky (tiny movements would produce loud cracking sounds that woke up our baby) and had visible damage. Wobbly drawers. Misaligned kitchen cabinets. Parts of kitchen chairs kept falling off, etc, etc. You get what you pay for, but I was expecting everything to work properly.
our third , enjoyable visit to this perfectly situated apartment
Welcome shopping done by Sandra was much apreciated, also her directions on places to visit and her patience on explaining and demonstrating how to use the cooker. !!
Hopefullywe will return next year if problems of age permit
A very nice place with a fantastic localization. The hords from the cruiseships could actually look down upon us, so near were we the harbour (and we could wave to the rest of the family on the balcony when two of us left Malta with ferry). Complaints from a neighbour that my daughters sunbaded on the roof terrace (not topless of course) did not destroy a very fine holiday
L'appartement est parfaitement situé au coeur de La Valette, à proximité des quais et du centre ville. L'acceuil de Sandra est sympathique. Nous avons opté
pour la formule aéroport-appartement par le taxi proposé par la propriétaire. Très pratique pour ne pas perdre de temps dans le cadre
d'un wek-end prolongé. L'appartement dispose d'une belle vue sur le port. La literie est confortable. La cuisine est très "vintage"
avec ses meubles verts en Formica des années 70 !
Nous ne sommes pas d'accord avec les critiques émises dans un avis récent. Certes, il ne s'agit pas d'un appartement luxueux, les
équipements sont simples, l'ameublement ancien et un peu hétéroclite mais le
rapport qualité-prix est parfaitement justifié. Nous le conseillons donc à tous ceux qui ne dispose pas de voiture et veulent
visiter La Valette à pied.
Au registre des petites critiques : immeuble ancien, donc sonore (on entend les voisins) et le bruit de quelques voitures qui
klaxonnent tôt le matin se répercutent sur les grandes et magnifiques murailles qui bordent la rue. Or, les 2 chambres donnent sur la rue...
Par ailleurs, la terrasse qui figure dans l'annonce n'est pas directement accessible de l'appartement,
il faut emprunter l'escalier de l'immeuble et monter 2 étages. Pas très pratique pour aller prendre l'apéritif et
profiter de la très belle vue là-haut.
La perfection n'étant pas de ce monde, nous recommandons ce logement bien sympathique !
The apartment is perfectly located in the heart of Valletta, close to the quays and the city center. The welcome of Sandra is nice. We have chosen
for the airport-apartment formula by the taxi proposed by the owner. Very practical not to waste time in the frame
of an extended wek-end. The apartment has a beautiful view of the harbor. The bedding is comfortable. The kitchen is very "vintage"
with its green furniture in Formica 70s!
We do not agree with the criticisms issued in a recent opinion. Of course, this is not a luxury apartment, the
facilities are simple, the furnishings old and a little heterogeneous but the
price-performance ratio is perfectly justified. We therefore advise anyone who does not have a car and want
visit Valletta on foot.
In the register of small reviews: old building, so sound (we hear the neighbors) and the sound of some cars that
honk early in the morning reverberate on the large and beautiful walls that line the street. The 2 rooms overlook the street ...
In addition, the terrace in the advertisement is not directly accessible from the apartment,
you have to take the stairs of the building and go up 2 floors. Not very convenient for an aperitif and
enjoy the beautiful view up there.
Perfection is not of this world, we recommend this accommodation very nice!
We loved the location right next to the old town of Valletta, the privacy, the view from the balcony and kitchen window, and the pleasant and clean entrance and common areas.
What was disappointing though was that the interior of the apartment itself was rough and ready. The “bedside lamps” in the twin bedroom were just naked long-life bulbs in scruffy fittings with no lampshades. The coffee table in the breakfast area was so rickety it wobbled every time we touched it. The quilts in the wardrobes (we had to use them as the nights were chilly) were dirty and stained and didn’t smell too nice. No matter how careful we were, the shower leaked all over the floor and had to be mopped every morning. The reason for this is that the plastic seal along the bottom of the shower screen is aged, mouldy and doesn’t fit right into the corner any more.
We were also very disappointed when we were told that the area of the roof terrace with the view over the harbour was not for our use. We were allowed to peek at the view briefly, but the area we could use was on the road side of the roof, from where there was no view. The two orange loungers we were shown we could use were spattered with black mould. There were a white plastic table and chairs in the corner – behind someone else’s washing. So we didn’t use the roof at all. There was nothing to see.
The house the apartment is in is in a cul de sac, but it is a really busy street from early morning as drivers start at 5am to bag the sought-after places in the small car park at the end of the road. If you’re a light sleeper, you’ll need ear plugs.
