We had a wonderful holiday in Sliema and this cosy basement flat really contributed. Since it is partially below ground level, it is cool and the fans provided made for a perfect temperature. Personally, I dislike air conditioning since it makes it far too hard to acclimatise to outdoor temperatures so this flat really was ideal for me. As mentioned in the description, you do need to pass through the owners home to reach the stair case down to the flat. However, this actually contributed to the feeling that we were in a home rather than in a cold and impersonal holiday flat. Edward and his wife are always available and extremely helpful and friendly. At the same time, they do not interfere and let you get on with your holiday. The flat is situated at about 30 seconds from both the ferry to Valletta and the bus to everywhere else on the island including Cirkewwa. Walk the other way up the hill and back down to get to the Exiles beach (our favourite) and Balluta Bay.
We were a family of five and the flat was a perfect size for us. The only issue might be the fact that the toilet and shower are in the same room, but this simply required a little organisation. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked several successful meals that we were able to eat on the very pretty terrace.
We highly recommend this flat and hope that we can return soon!
The house is situated in the historic Vittoriosa with easy access to Valletta by ferry. This area had plenty of things to do and see with fine cafes and restaurants in the area. This sympathetic but modern renovation is comfortable and roomy. The owner is more than helpful and the home was well stocked. I recommend this property, we had a wonderful time. If you have mobility issues this may not be for you as there are stairs to 4 levels.
