“Excellent apartment with amazing rooftop view”
Reviewed 10 August 2014 for a stay in June 2014

This place is just amazing, the entry of the building is beautiful, makes you feel like you just enter the time of the Knights!!! The penthouse is spotless, spacious and decorated to a high standard. The apartment is very well equipped, the kitchen has everything you need to prepare a meal. There is plenty of outdoor space, there is a balcony with a big table and chairs, just outside the living room, and upstairs there is the rooftop, with sunbeds and an amazing view of Malta, make sure you enjoy a glass of prosecco while watching the sunset!!!!
Claire is so friendly and helpful, always available to give suggestions, thanks for the hospitality. The apartment is in the centre of Valletta, 5min walk to a lot of restaurants and cafes, good places to start the day with a traditional pastizzi! And at night there are plenty of bars with live music a few meters away. Definitely a place to go back!!!!

“Fantastic Views across Valletta”
Reviewed 21 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014
1
person found this review helpful

I would definitely recommend this apartment. It perhaps isn't suitable for children though, due to the spiral staircase down to the second bedroom. The views are lovely and it was nice to have somewhere to sit outside. The view from the dining room table is to die for. Claire was very helpful, as well as the letting agent lady. I would choose the option of a taxi pick up as the place could be difficult to find and Valletta is very hilly in places. I would recommend the bakery next door for your daily bread and eggs. Be careful of the bakery stairs though! The only reason this place does not get 5 stars, is the fact there were only 3 outside chairs and 3 sunbeds. 1 of these sunbeds was also broken. When the place is advertised for 4 people, surely there should be 4 of everything. When we mentioned it to the letting agent on checkout, she said they had broken last week. We were not sure about this excuse and would have preferred to have been told before hand. That is our only criticism.

The penthouse was a superb light filled open plan apartment with 360 deg views from the rooftop terrace. Claire the owner was a charming and exceptionally helpful host- even drove us across Valetta to our next accommodation! She was prompt in response to any query and unfailingly cheerful. Recommend the airport pickup service as apartment could be hard to find in old Valletta's narrow streets.

“Excellent Base for "the real Valletta"”
Reviewed 5 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Valletta has lots of steep steps and road , so difficult for the less mobile.
Old mint No 1 and 2 and the penthouse, have been furnished and decorated to a high standard, the lift to all 3 properties is a +bonus.
Accommodation is great and the view from the Penthouse rooftop is super.
The property is designed for adults (personal opinion) as the spiral staircase for children could pose a problem!

“Great Accommodation and Great Views”
Reviewed 22 May 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We very much enjoyed our stay in the Old Mint Penthouse. It was clean, spacious, well equipped and has excellent outdoor space for relaxing and wonderful views.
Although the penthouse has a second double bedroom, you have to go down some steps to get to it and you would certainly be the loser if you were going with another couple and had this bedroom!!
As mentioned in other reviews of this property the sliding doors to the terrace do not shut or lock, potentially a security problem, but highly unlikely as it would be very difficult to get on to the terrace any other way! Also don't expect much from the TV if your only language is English - anyway there is too much to do and see to want the TV.

I do have a few niggles though:-
a) You will be charged for the use of wifi (Why? Please include it in the overall cost)
b) Your fee includes an allowance of 5 euros per day for electricity, if you use more than this you will be charged (We kept well in our allowance but just used the hot water heater, kettle and toaster).
c) Booking not neccessarily the easiest with additional costs and conversion from GBP to Euro not to your advantage.

Being in the centre of Valletta you are very close to the ferry to Sliema, about 10 minutes from the taxi boat to the Three Cities and the bus station. Republic Street is just 5 minutes away. Two doors away is a bakery, pizza and general store all rolled into one. Valleta is a wonderful place with superb views from many places.

Finally, I would highly recommend the Old Mint Penthouse.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a feedback review and on the whole you thoroughly enjoyed your stay, I would just like to make some points in answer to some of your comments;

1) The second bedroom is accessed via spiral traditional Maltese steps of which are displayed on the advert.

2) The Patio doors from the living area to terrace, have caused us issues in terms of the locking mechanism, which is a manufacture fault of whom will be visiting the Penthouse to again fix the problem.

3) The TV package in English (May 2013) offers as follows; Euronews, CNN International, Euro Sport News, Russia Today, Discovery World, Boomerang (Kids), KidsCo, Physique TV. I have stayed in many 4 and 5 star hotels that generally have BBC World News, Euro News, CNN International.

4) Internet Charge, we offer a secure WiFi system that comes without bandwidth restriction 24/7 for Eur5.00 per day and not Eur5.00 per day for 90 minutes as many offer. Like anyone else in business we need to make money, the whole block and accommodation refurbishment cost circa Eur1 million, which is quite an investment and just like hotel we need to make a profit, in return we offer the best private short let accommodation in Valletta.

5) Electric consumption is monitored only due to certain guest that spoil the fun somewhat in leaving lights on and air conditioning when they are not in the accommodation, I note you wasn't charged.

6) We advise on our cost response email the exchange rate and give a link to the website we take the conversion, which is the daily average rate, in terms of certain currency exchange rate companies, banks the rate is fair.

Sorry to perhaps appear defensive I just want to point out in the best possible way my answers to your comments. I am delighted you did on the whole enjoy your stay :) Rgrds Paul...

“The penthouse was great and the views were fantastic”

This was a beautiful apartment and really well equipped and furnished. The views from the terrace were amazing, but the spiral staircase was not for the faint-hearted or the vertically challenged. We did make a lot of use of the lower balcony area, it was great to have some outside space. The location is ideal, close to the Siema Ferry (Carrefour Supermarket & harbour cruises) and also close to the centre of Valletta and the bus terminus to get to the rest of the island. Our taxi from the airport had trouble finding the address as we didn't have a house number. The website is not great at flagging up the actual address, it is buried in the booking form - NUMBER 21. I missed it and we got dropped off a long way from the apartment.

“Refined, comfortable and perfectly located for exploring Valletta”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We loved staying here. The penthouse has been finished to a high standard and, with its wonderful view over the harbour (not Grand Harbour...the other one that I can't spell!) felt spacious and very classy. We didn't need the second bedroom but it looked as pleasant as the rest of the apartment and would have been fine for another adult couple or for youngsters...probably not very young children though.
Our landlady was on hand during the day and her agent was efficient and reliable.
The kitchen was well equipped with good quality utensils but one or two items might reasonably have been expected: a colander, certainly, and perhaps some scissors, for example.
The bathroom is comfortable and very practical, but given the letting rates, we felt perhaps that electricity costs (largely for the water heater) should have been included in the price. (We were "credited" a certain number of units, but not offered a refund for those we didn't use!) While I'm niggling, I should mention that the loo was a pain to flush, and " locking" the doors onto the balcony involved jamming a couple of pieces of wood into the grooves...
The television showed a very limited range of programmes of interest to us (Brits). When we did use it, a basic instruction sheet would have been useful for all the zappers, and perhaps a selection of DVDs could be available (although admittedly we noted that they seemed to be expensive in the local shops).
The lower balcony was fine for relaxing, and although the upper roof terrace had great views, it was rather windy and lugging furniture up the spiral staircase was more trouble than it was worth.
For our first visit to Malta this apartment was perfectly located. Plenty of restaurants are close by, the shops and tourist attractions too, and for exploring further afield, the bus station is just a few minutes' walk up the hill. The bakery just a door or so away was a lovely bonus...the fresh bread fantastic and the pizzas not bad either!
