“Lovely flat in beautiful Birgu”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

The flat looks a lot better in real than on photos. The place is clean and as described.

It is placed in Birgu/Vitorriosa - an old district with magical atmosphere, especialy in the evening. There is a ferry nearby to get to center of Valetta in less than half an hour.

We truly recommend it.

“A real Maltese experience”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment is ideal for two people. Good sized bedroom with lots of storage space, bathroom with wash basin and shower, small kitchen area, fair sized sitting area with sofa and small table and chairs by the window overlooking the street.
The apartment is in a quiet street, on the first floor of a traditional building (i.e. second floor for any Americans!) accessed by a stone staircase probably unsuitable for anyone with a walking disability. Typical Maltese furnishings, a lovely place for anyone wanting a traditional and atmospheric place to stay. This includes a clothes line outside the bedroom window, to hang your washing to dry over a little alleyway.
Mariella arranged a taxi to and from the airport, and kindly left us a small supply of bread, cheese, milk etc to get us started.
It's five or six minutes walk to the bus stop for travel to Valletta or elsewhere, and less than ten minutes walk to the water taxi to Valletta. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby, also a couple of small shops for basic groceries. (You have to go a bit further afield to find a larger supermarket). Very close to the waterfront for admiring the superyachts!
We stayed for two weeks and had a very enjoyable time. We may well return on a future occasion.

“GREAT LITTLE APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF VITTORIOSA”
Reviewed 14 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015
1
person found this review helpful

We spent a week at this apartment and found it met all our needs. Great location in the heart of the town so all amenities - little shops, cafes , bars and restaurants on hand. The owner arranged to pick us up and showed us around the apartment when we arrived. It is very quaint with lots of lovely historical features but had a very modern bathroom and fully fitted kitchen so we had all we needed. We have visited Malta before but this is our favourite place - the Three Cities are wonderful and the mix of old and new and made for a wonderful holiday . Anyone who visits should go for a coffee in Café Du Brazil, a gin and tonic in the St Lawrence Band Club and have a meal at dCentre and the wonderful Osteria. All of the places we visited were great value for money gave excellent service and the people were so friendly. The Vittoriosa Sport Bar was also great so we never had to go far to have a good night out. There is a regular ferry service to Valletta which was a wonderful way to travel into the capital and visit all the museums. However we spent most of time just walking around the beautiful Three Cities which are exceptional.
If you want a good base for a great holiday in this area this apartment is excellent - Mariella also arranged for her friend to take us back to the airport so the service she provided was great. Highly recommended

“Really nice apartment with all I needed”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This apartment was just right for my partner and I but I do feel it would have been a bit of a squeeze if we had had additional guest's as there was a sofa bed in the living room and it said it could accommodate a further two. The apartment was nicely decorated and had some very useful essentials which where very much appreciated such as tea, coffee sugar, salt, pepper, olive oil etc. I had a very nice comfortable stay there and would recommend it.

“Ideal base for visiting the beautiful island of malta”
Reviewed 13 April 2014 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

The easiest and most prompt booking process through trip advisors holidaylettings was a pleasure and even faster than booking .com. The flat was filled with traditional quaint features and all we needed for a two week base for three self catering fussy eaters. The bedroom was lovely with one of the comfiest beds ive ever slept in ( could have been exhaustion as Malta ha so much to see and do lol) Birgu itself is undergoing a lot of development that is totally unintrusive and we actually noticed the daily changes but not the work getting done. The Grand Harbour is amazing and the situation of Vittoriosa on it is breathtaking. Do take the water taxi to Valletta and discover the inlets and outlets of this amazing place. Buses are cheap but although they tend to be a bit tedious you will discover the true malta. Plenty of walks and local bars to discover. Trendy cool restaurants and bars fit together nicely with the traditional .In burgu itself the old city pub and the labour party club we found were two very friendly and welcoming places. Big thanks to Mariella for the prompt and efficient booking process and her friendly welcome. .
