“The view sells it”
Reviewed March 11, 2016 for a stay in March 2016
1
person found this review helpful

Admirals View is clean and tidy. Although pretty basic there was everything we needed and the wifi was great.
The big selling point is definitely the views over the working harbour to the three cities. Hours could be spent watching the tankers in the harbour and the yachts over the way in the harbour at Birgu. You should note the balcony is solid concrete rather than wooden spindles, which does impact on the view when sitting.
There was really good communication beforehand with the owner, key arrangements were easy and there was someone there to greet us and show us round. We also really appreciated that basic groceries, milk, bread, tea and coffee were waiting for us as we arrived late on a Sunday - very good service.

Good size bathroom but you should note that the shower facility is a mixer tap and not overhead - we found this a bit tricky, but not everyone will. Also needs a new shower head.
Much of the furniture has seen better days - many drawers and cupboard/wardrobe doors don't quite open or close well - but it is in keeping mostly with the style of the house.
Hot water supply was good, but you do need to wait a good 40 mins between showers.

“Great welcome, great location, great views”
Reviewed February 22, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Despite our late-evening arrival the owner arranged our transport from the airport and met us at the apartment to show us round; he even provided food essentials for our first night. The characterful apartment is located in an old-world Valetta street and provides very spacious accommodation for a couple. The views across Grand Harbour from the bedroom and lounge are stunning. Located just a few minutes' walk from the bus station, the apartment is an ideal base from which to explore the whole of Malta as well as see the sights of its historic capital.

“Simply fantastic!”

What can I add over and above all the other rave reviews of the Admiral's Suite?

This stunning, sizeable, high-ceilinged apartment with most of its original fittings (doors, shutters etc) intact , its comfortable furniture (two sofas and a proper size dining table, not to mention the lovely Welsh dresser full of superb crockery and glassware in the living room; the very comfy bed with reading lights on each side in the bedroom; the big and extremely well-equipped kitchen, the full-size bath and plenty of hot water, the entrance lobby., utility cupboard with washing machines...). And, to crown it all, the magnificent view of the Grand Harbour from the bedroom window and from the living room balcony.

Every morning, my wife and I were up far earlier than usual (for us), having breakfast on the east-facing balcony watching the sun rise over the Three Cities, and the movements of ships and ferries in the harbour. Pure magic! And at dusk, the view was equally magical, as the setting sun changed the hues on the water and townscape opposite, and the lights on the ships and buildings came on.

This was our first visit to Valletta. I was worried that it might be a chilly n the first week of February, but in fact the sun shone every day, and the apartment stayed warm at night with the help of a boost from the two electric heaters provided.

As for the city, it is amazing - like a time capsule of European history, from the figurines and temple artefacts dating from 3,600 BC (in the Archeological Museum), to the extraordinary visionary new City Gate designed by Renzo Piano, not forgetting, of course, the wonderful 16C baroque architecture of the Knights of St John ;-) Our only regret is that we only stayed for 6 days in Valletta, and felt we had hardly scratched the surface of its cultural and architectural treasures... not to mention the wonderful and diverse range of restaurants, and the excellent Maltese wines....

Many thanks to Jasper and Fleur for helping to make our stay so enjoyable. And be warned : we will return!

“Timeless elegance in a jewel at the heart of the Mediterranean”
Reviewed November 22, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

The apartment is extremely convenient for visiting the magnificence that is Valletta during the day, in the evening a short stroll will take you to the open air squares and the rich variety of cafes, restaurants & pubs which this jewel of a city has to offer. Overlooking the magnificent Grand Harbour the spacious apartment has been elegantly decorated by Fleur & Jasper who were very efficient & courteous in making every aspect of their guests stay as enjoyable as possible.

“The perfect place to explore Malta.”
Reviewed November 9, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This is a very traditional apartment with a little balcony and amazing views over the Three Cities. It is well equipped and comfortable. The location is perfect. Easy walking distance to everywhere in Valletta, the bus station and ferry terminals. The host was very helpful and we would definitely book this apartment again in the future.

“Quality apartment with one of the best views of Valetta harbour”
Reviewed September 3, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Jasper, who owns the letting, was there to greet us an very helpful. The wifi worked fine, but was a little slow. The view was magnificent, so grab your wine and sit on the balcony. Shower really needs improving... a new shower head would be a good idea. It's a short walk to central Valetta, which is an architectural beauty. If you hire a car, it is not too difficult to find parking close by. Would stay there again.

I could sit on the balcony for hours and just watch the ships go by and enjoy a little sea breeze!
With the old style of the flat (high ceilings and old tiles on the floor) you just feel like a knight in the historic Valletta!
The kitchen offers everything you need for a little cooking and the flat is very clean!
It's perfectly situated close to the upper baracca gardens, where you can sit and enjoy the evening with a bottle of vine or a can of cisk (beer)!
