“Great Apartment In a Wonderful Location”
Reviewed June 30, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

Just stayed for eleven days in this very well refurbished apartment. Superb views over the harbour. Lovely position just 200 yards from centre of Valletta.

Thought the 'wet-room' was excellent.

Owner Peter couldn't have been more helpful.

“COULDN'T BE BETTER”
Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

My husband and I (early 60’s) just returned from a 3 week stay in this fabulous Valletta apartment (May 20 - June 10). I found it on TripAdvisor and booked it because of the positive reviews, so I feel obligated to add mine. As has been noted in previous reviews, there are a lot of stairs, but we did not find this a problem, rather a positive in the fitness and muscle tone department :-) Valletta is filled with old stairs and hilly streets.

PRO’S

THE VIEW – it doesn’t get much better than this. Entire width of the apartment is windows (that open !!!) looking out over Marsamxett Harbour, Fort Manoel Island, Sliema and the open sea. Fabulous sunsets, cool breezes, sailboats, yachts …

LOCATION – location, location, location !!! The apartment is just above the ferry terminal to Sliema, 10 minutes from the bus terminal, minutes from great restaurants (try Guze – it’s fabulous), 5 minutes from the market with butchers, fresh veg venders, deli and a great fish monger.

OPEN PLAN LIVING – Kitchen, lounge, dining room. Lounge has a very comfortable sofa, large screen TV, dining table seats 8 – both allow seating facing the windows and the fantastic view.

KITCHEN – very well equipped kitchen (we like to cook-in) with a full gas stove/oven, including great pots/pans, sharp knives, good cutting board, a salad spinner (thanks Peter!!) and plenty of good dishes, glassware and cutlery.

DRESSING ROOM – This is HUGE. We were able to store away 2 large and 2 small suitcases, clothing for 3 weeks and still plenty of room for more. Tons of hangars – we’ve never experienced this in any of our apartment travels – wonderful!! Dressing room also has 2 separate sink basins, nice lighting and mirrors.

BEDROOM - Comfy bed, we slept great.

SHOWER ROOM – fabulous rain shower – I miss it already.

OWNER – Peter Valentino is a gem. He responded quickly to all our inquiries prior to booking and all the way through the process. He met us upon our arrival, showed us around and made sure we had everything we needed for an enjoyable stay.

None

“What a view and right in the heart of Valletta!”
Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

person found this review helpful

Stayed three nights in this lovely apartment which has been sympathetically converted in one of the old parts of Valletta with wonderful views right across to Sliema.
Peter, the owner, is very helpful and was waiting for us to show us everything we needed to know about the apartment, good restaurants to eat in, and other information. There is a very comfortable sitting room which has amazing views across the Marsamxett Harbour. There is a great open-plan kitchen - not that we used it much as there are so many excellent restaurants in the old town. There is a guest toilet as well as a separate bathroom + a huge dressing area with his & her basins. Everything we could possible want in a city apartment, we were so pleased to have found it.

“A FIVE STAR PROPERTY -Skip the Hotels, THIS PLACE IS PERFECTION!”
Reviewed May 2, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

people found this review helpful

We planned our stay in Malta to be in the middle of our six week travels to eight countries and wanted to ensure we had a pleasant place to stay for our week of rest and exploration. I can tell you, we found it in Valletta Seafront. The 24 hours preceding our arrival were perilous and filled with frustration. The final blow being the ferry from Sicily to Malta being delayed for three hours. We therefore arrived at almost one in the morning. Guess what, there was the most kind and gracious owner, Peter, waiting for us. He acted as if we were the most important thing on his mind, though I know he would much have preferred to be at home in bed.

He had a marvelous booklet of information for us containing information about nearby (everything is nearby to this place) restaurants and supply shopping, as well as sights. The apartment is so very, very private and extremely spacious. Peter was able to preserve the feel of the 150 year old building while creating a luxurious and modern interior. The design of this apartment is so very comfortable and provides ease of use. You are provided a very modern kitchen with exceptional gas stove, full size refrigerator and freezer. There is a washer, dryer, microwave, dishwasher and any cooking utensil you might desire.

The dining area provides a beautiful table that will seat eight, which is perfect to lay out your travel papers to plan your visit. A very large and comfortable sofa faces the beautifully restored windows that provide for a view that is breathtaking ( and that is an understatement)!!! A large flat screen T.V. Provides you with so many channel selections that you are guaranteed something for your entertainment. The channel selection was easy to use, something we do not find to be true in many hotels.

There is an exceptionally large changing area with very large space for your clothing and supporting two sinks far from each other so you are never crowded. The bath/shower room is very pleasant and spacious. The apartment also provides a second half bath. Air conditioning is available; however with all the windows (that actually open) we never felt the need to use it.

Now to the crown jewel of the place: THE VIEW!!!!
The West wall of the apartment which the primary living area (kitchen, dining and living room) of the apartment opens to the seafront....no buildings in the way, you own the entire seafront !! You face Marsamextt Harbor, which in itself is a joyous site, but wait there is more!!! Directly in front of you, facing you square on is Manoel Island, complete with the grand Fort Manoel facing you directly on! Could it get any. Better, you ask......YES! The sun sets directly behind the Fort everyday. What amazing evening we had gazing out on this most amazing sight. We laughed everyday as tourists flocked to the wall below us to watch and photograph, as we sat comfortably in our apartment sipping Maltese wine.

We cannot more highly recommend a place to stay inValletta. We heard many tourists speaking of their cramped, uncomfortable hotels, rooms which they were paying more for than we were paying for this tremendous apartment!!!! Peter was suc a great host and was so very helpful, even months before we ever arrived. If you are taking the ferry over check out Virtu Ferry, thanks to Peter we found them.

You leave the apartment and within two minutes you are in the middle of Valletta, brimming with fun and life. Turn the corner and go into the apartment and you are in a quiet, peaceful paradise.

Okay, now for the downside......the apartment is so comfortable and the views so wonderful, you do not want to leave and go see the sights!!!

We highly recommend this property and would be happy to answer any questions you may have. The was one of the best experiences of any travels we have ever had.

“Excellent location, excellent views , excellent apartment!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We booked this apartment for our weeks break in Valetta & were not disappointed.
The apartment is well equipped, clean and ideally located, with great views over the harbour to Sliema & just a five minute walk (albeit up-hill) into Valletta town centre.
Peter the owner arranged to meet & greet us on arrival & was very helpful with his local knowledge of restaurants, shops etc.
It is a second floor flat so be aware that there are four flights of stairs - but believe me the view is worth it. Also, if you plan to stay in some evenings, you might consider upgrading the TV channels.

We would certainly recommend this apartment to friends & would love to stay here again one day.

Thank you for your positive comments and great review - I would just like to clarify that it is two flights of stairs (not 4) to reach the apartment on second floor. Wishing you all the best.
