“Wonderful View”
Reviewed May 17, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

This lovely apartment affords fantastic views with a wonderful balcony running around two sides of the building, great for watching the sunset with a Gin & Tonic.
The owner Alexander could not have been more helpful and was a real genuine guy.
The location was great for all the attractions Valletta has to offer with shops and restaurants close by.
All in all a nice place for a base to explore Valletta.

Booked online from Australia 6 months ago - it was our first visit to Malta. What a stunning location! Views to die for! I kept going onto the balcony day and night to take more photos in the changing light conditions across the harbour towards Slima.
Alexander met us on arrival, and introduced us to the unit - complete with all mod cons AND bottled water, crostini and a beautiful bottle of local white wine. We would recommend this to all especially as it's in the heart of the old city. A must is a visit to Joe Frendo's bakery. Go up the steps to Old Mint Street, turn right, walk until you see the bakery sign - then DIVE INTO THE DEPTHS DOWN THE RICKY STAIRCASE and enjoy!!!
Thanks for everything Alexander. Campbell & Sandra

Alexander made us feel very welcome and provided us with wine, milk and bread. The apartment was very well equipped, with a comfy bed, plenty of kitchen equipment for self-catering, and an entertainment system of TV, DVDs and music when we wanted it. The heating system was very efficient - useful as it was a cool February.
The views from the balconies and the location were fantastic - Valletta on your doorstep!

“Great Location!”

We stayed 12th - 19th January which coincided with the Valletta Baroque Music Festival which we had booked some concerts for in advance.
Weather was great - warm 15-17 degrees I would guess and sunshine most of the 7 days.
In January the balcony only gets about 30 mins of sunshine per day (about 4-4.30pm) but that doesn't in any way detract from the amazing panoramic view.
Apartment is very good - agree with another reviewer that a couple of more hooks in bathroom would be helpful.
Kitchen equipment was fine - possibly a larger cafetiere if more than 2 staying.
The guest book of recommended cafes etc is very useful - but sometimes it's good to just drop into a place on chance to see what it's like. Having said that we enjoyed meals at Trabuxu Bistro and Cordial.
Alexander was very helpful on our arrival emphasising we could contact him any time - but the need never arose.
Recommend a visit to the War Rooms - a very interesting account of the actions and importance of Malta in WW2. (The War Museum was closed for renovation).
Also recommend visit to the Theatre Manuel just up the steps on the left - a really unique intimate and magnificent theatre. It also goes without saying that churches in Valletta are breathtakingly beautiful. St John's Co-Cathedral is particularly so and has Caravaggio's "The Beheading of John the Baptist" in the Oratory - definitely worth seeing (apparently his largest canvas).

We stayed in this apartment 4 x nights from 29 September 2014 and we should have stayed longer but our travel arrangements did not permit.
The apartment is as described with a "million dollar" view and we well and truly utilized the wrap around balcony. The apartment is quiet, centrally located with an easy 7 -10 minute walk, some stairs initially, to the main city square.
We found the apartment very comfortable with all the modern amenities one would want. Alexander was very prompt, pleasant and courteous to deal with as we finalised the arrangements.
We would most certainly stay again as this apartment contributed greatly to our wonderful stay to Malta.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed September 18, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

That applies to both Valletta and the Apartment at Old Theatre Lane. The views are as described by others -- simply outstanding. And, if your plan is to make Valletta your Malta base (which I recommend), the location is also very convenient -- if you don't mind a little walking (See below).

First, Alexander B. has done a wonderful job taking a 100+ year old flat and making it into a modern & convenient "self-catering" home. The main room has 180 degree views and you will spend time at the table, on the couch, and on the balcony watching people and boats go by. It's also a great sunset viewing platform, and there's even a long-range view of the old Mdina Citadel-Capital from the balconies. The bedroom is also more than adequate for two. We were there during typical early Malta September weather -- hot with the occasional humid day, but with all the windows you can open up the apartment for great sea breezes. A/C is there if you want it, and we usually turned it on at night so that we could close the windows and keep out the street noise.

I have two caveats that are important for setting expectations. (1) I found the location convenient -- ferry to Siliema is 5 minutes away, the main Valletta bus terminal is a 15 minute walk, many restaurants are within 4-6 blocks, and main tourist sites are 4-12 blocks away. There are shops nearby for daily needs. However you have to be willing to walk, and walk steps. There are fifty stone steps up old Theatre Lane and it seemed like we walked them three times a day. There are also about 30 steps up to the apartment via a spiral staircase. Nonetheless, the carriages are just below the apartment, airport taxi's were no problem, and Valletta is a city you have to walk to see.

Second, is that you have to prepare to "self-cater" - linens come with the apartment, but there's no maid service or daily fresh towels. Alexander very helpfully leaves tea, juice, bread, butter, wine and cookies for his guests, but if you want to do more eating in, you have to learn to navigate Malta's sometimes confusing retail system. It's nothing that's not doable, and to us learning how the Maltese live was an important part of our first-time Malta experience.

Finally, because I went to Malta for the history and architecture, I applaud Alexander for an excellent collection of reading material and photographic books. There's even the Alex Guinness DVD on Malta (shot at the Lascaris War Rooms), but be forewarned it does not have a happy ending.
