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!

Very good location in the centre of Valetta and very comfortable flat with a nice view and air conditioning
This was family gathering for the wedding. Seven adults arriving on different days and times from the US (MA,NJ,PA) and England. The
entire registration and logistics coordination process went smoothly. The owner Debra was in touch and provided recommendations via email. Sandra, the caretaker, met us and provided a welcome basket of start-up food (at cost) that we used mostly for breakfast - we were on holiday so no one wanted to cook. The kitchen is well equipped with everything needed. The refrigeration needed defrosting but I understand it is very difficult to do between guest arrivals. There is a large selection of paperbacks and a number of guide books that were useful. The apartment is conveniently located near the lift to the upper garden which gives access to Valletta if you don't want to climb the stone steps to mid-city. Perfect location for visiting Valletta!
We found the sleeping situation a little tight for 7 adults - 3 married couples and a single female. We shuffled the furniture around to make another bedroom for one couple out of the TV room but it meant access to the kitchen was through the open sleeping area. There were plenty of sheets, pillows and towels. We used the air conditioners once. They worked well but the breeze was generally good enough to keep the apartment cool. We coordinated the airport taxi services through Sandra via text. Walking and bus transport were the primary means of transportation. If we return to Valletta, we would definitely stay here again.
We are a family of four and we were thrilled with this rental - Location couldn't be better. The apartment is roomy enough for a family of four. My only suggestion would be that the owners upgrade their bedding - pillows were flat and uncomfortable, mattress on master bed was not great. Sandra was most helpful ( she even brought her own hair dryer to the apartment for my daughters), and we enjoyed our welcome package but would have preferred fresh Maltese bread over sliced commercial brands.
We would return for sure.
very good location just outside walls of historic town and only 5-10 minutes walk to historic sites and bus station to get buses to elsewhere on the island (but you have to be fit to go up all the steps in town-unless you use the lift- and do not believe the bus timetables). Wonderful view of the fireworks in the harbour from the roof terrace and well appointed apartment. Owner very prompt and helpful repying to my e-mails.
Do not miss all the amazing prehistoric -3,600BC -temples on the island.
We have enjoyed our second stay in this comfortable apartment, fantastic views from the balcony and a warm welcome from Sandra
Cooking facilities rather limited ((a microwave would be useful )
Apartment is well situated for access to bus station and Barrakka lift ,and hopefully we will return again next year
Thanks for everything Sandra
