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 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. Gina Cali
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
Excellent location in Valletta, quiet, and close but enough steps to the centre of town to work off the fabulous food. We had an amazing view from the tiny balcony and kitchen. The kitchen was huge, fun 1950's style. Our bed was King size, very comfortable. Bathroom very functional, second toilet with sink with cold water very useful. TV and Internet worked easily. The place was spacious for the three of us, and would have been fine for four, as the second bedroom had two single beds. Recommendation: pure cotton sheets and unscented laundry detergent. Sandra the concierge was very helpful and responsive. The offered car service by Gabriel to and from the airport was well worth it: efficient and very nice, and very informative. We had a water problem with no shower or bath for a day and a quarter, which my husband corrected by solving an air lock problem. The toilet had been running constantly. The plumber who came said that the owner would be replacing something. However, there was still water in the kitchen and half bathroom. I don't recommend the welcome basket of food. Instead of the stated butter, it was margarine, in the 'fridge, already opened and used. Same with jam, opened and used, and same with the small amount of ground coffee. There was instant coffee!!!. There was pre-sliced cheese and ham, cheese had been opened. The bread was supermarket type, pre-sliced. Sandra was very accommodating and didn't charge us for it, and brought more bread and buns. When arriving late at night, a diagram indicating the way to the restaurants would be helpful. We wandered around, found a bar, which directed us to a good restaurant in a tent, and actually phoned them to say we'd be coming. We had no idea how many other restaurants there were open near by down side streets! Lovely place, Malta, we'll return to your lovely apartment. Thank you for a great visit. Rosemary, Ben and Anna
Cet appartement situé tout près du cœur de La Valette est idéal pour passer des vacances entre amis. Pendant notre séjour nous avons surtout apprécié la localisation de l'appartement: nous étions à proximité des lieux sympathiques à visiter comme Upper Barrakka gardens. Nous avons été très bien accueilli par Sandra ( the house keeper). Tous les équipements nécessaires avaient été mis a disposition (ustensiles de cuisine, linge de bain et linge de lit, moustiquaires à toutes les fenêtres). Indéniablement, le petit + de la location est la terrasse située sur le toit de l'immeuble qui offre une vue imprenable sur les trois citées. This apartment located near the heart of Valletta is perfect for a holiday with friends. During our stay we especially appreciated the location of the apartment: we were near the nice places to visit such as Upper Barrakka Gardens . We were very well received by Sandra (the house keeper ) . All necessary equipment was made available (kitchen utensils , bath linen and bed linen , mosquito nets to all windows ) . Undeniably , the small + of rental is the terrace on the roof of the building that offers stunning views of the three mentioned.
