Apartment overview - owner's description
Stylish and spacious waterfront self-catering apartment with a breathtakingly beautiful 180-degree panoramic view of the Grand Harbour and Three Cities
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!

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.

The best thing about Debra's beautiful flat is the location - in the absolute heart of Valletta's old town.
The other best thing is the spectacular view over the Grand Harbour from the balcony and from the kitchen - it made washing up a pleasure!
I was there with two friends and won the sofa bed option but there was no problem with that - the facilities are all there, plenty of towels too which was nice compared with some other places that can be quite stingy on that front.
We were only there for 3 nights but very much hope to return for a slightly longer stay next time - Highly recommended!
Lovely apartment, ideal for the 5 of us. It was great that the TV room with sofa bed could be turned into separate bedroom.
Stunning view out of the living room window.
Close to centre of Valletta & restaurants & bars, especially if you use the lift (€1).
Thank you for arranging pickup for the 5 of us in one vehicle from the airport, but unfortunately the transport did not turn up at 5:30 am for the return journey & we had to walk to taxi rank at bus station to get to airport.
We enjoyed our stay and were well looked after by Sandra. The apartment is in a great location and was spacious for us, a family of 4, with grown up children. We loved the view, so it was a shame that the heat of the August sun at the time made it less comfortable to enjoy the roof terrace, which is situated up a flight of stairs. Thank you for our stay and the complimentary water bottles provided.
P.S. A guest book to pass on tips and hints to future travellers would have been helpful to us.
My friends and I stayed in this apartment very well. The apartment was clean and equipped with everything you needed. Sheets, towels and everything you need to cook and wash. Contact with the owner has always been kind and costant.
I highly recommend staying at this property.
