I travelled with a group of 6 people to Malta, staying at this apartment for 7 nights. It's located in Msida, and is a 2 minutes walk to the nearest bus stop and 5 minute stroll to the beautiful marina in Ta-Xbiex. Booking with the agent Ralph Vella was very straight-forward, and I found him very flexible to deal with - we had a couple of requests that he was able to accommodate without hassle. We opted for a taxi-transfer as arranged by the letting company, an inexpensive option if you are travelling as a group and takes the hassle out of having to locate the apartment on your own. A €200 security deposit was given to the agent and returned promptly on departure.

The apartment was exactly as described and there were no unexpected or hidden surprises. Located in a quiet residential area, the penthouse is on 2 levels - 3 good sized bedrooms (2 double, 1 single) and a bathroom on the lower level and the large open plan living space / kitchen area is accessible via a spiral staircase. Both the front and back balconies are found on the top level, off the living area. The views from the front balcony were outstanding - right across the south of Malta. There was also a brand new gas BBQ available for use which we took great pleasure in using on one occasion.

The apartment was in a good clean condition as we would have expected. Towels were provided. There is also free WiFi included in the rental.

Electricity is supplied through a pre-paid meter and we had around €55 credit on the meter when we arrived - this was included in the rental price. A €20 token was also provided in case we ran out - chargeable at the end of our stay if we used it. Regrettably we had to use all €75 of electricity credit... We put this down to the use of the air-conditioning which we used quite liberally throughout the week! This did not come as a surprise as the agent forewarned about the expense of the air-conditioning.

We found the location to be excellent and especially ideal if you are spreading your travels between both Valletta and Sliema - the bus takes you to both in 10 minutes either direction.

There is an excellent licensed convenience store called 'Damascus' right across the street which is open 7am-11pm and run by an English chap - you'll get all you need from there. There is also a fruit and veg store approximately 30 steps away, and a hairdressers across the road.

I would strongly recommend this apartment to families of 4-6 people. I cannot wait to go back to Malta in the near future!
