        Lovely Maltese Life Style

        4 of 5
        What a lovely house in the heart of picturesque L'Isla! Shops for all daily needs as well as the bus stop are just around one or two corners, so we did not miss a rental car at all. The rooms are nicely renovated and the kitchen is well equipped. But on quite windy-cold winter days, it is a bit difficult to get the rooms warm and we could not use the nice "Gallarija" at all. Especially taking a shower was... hmmm... challenging, because the bath rooms could not be heated at all and the 15 degrees celsius were only endurable due to the shower's wonderful hot water :-)

        Outstanding apartment and service.

        5 of 5
        The apartment and location was everything we wished for. From beginning to end everything was dealt with in a friendly and professional manner. All communications were straightforward and response time was quick. Joseph met us on arrival and showed us round the apartment. The provided information booklet was excellent. Daniel, the owner, helped us to check out and was keen to hear about our holiday experience. He helped us with our luggage, walked with us to the taxi and stayed with us until the taxi arrived. He was friendly and charming. The apartment itself was exactly as described and as shown in the photographs.The views were stunning - arguably some of the best in Malta. The apartment was very clean and tidy, and well maintained. Although at the top of the building, there is a lift for those that might be put off by the steps. The local area was genuinely Maltese as opposed to touristy. The local shops had all the essentials and the local restaurants were all excellent and very reasonably priced. The food and service in 'Enchante' were particularly good. We found getting around the island very easy and cheap on public transport. The most pleasant and quickest way to Valletta was by the ferry, but from there it is only a short walk to the bus station from where you can easily get to anywhere on the island. We particularly enjoyed Mdina and the fish restaurants at Masaxlokk. We only had a short stay in the apartment, but it was everything we could have wished for. I would not hesitate in recommending it to others.

        The stunning views is what it is all about.

        We stayed in the appartment for 2 weeks. Why do we give this appartment 4 stars ? Is i because of the appartment itself ? No, it is rather old with old furnitures. But there is a nice doubblebed and at nice bathroom with a shower. What makes this appartment so special is the place, where the appartment is situated. Right in the center of the old part of Valletta/Senglea. It is quiet and the views of the harbour magnificent. There is a little ferry just 7 minutes walk away, and that ferry will take you to Valletta in just 5-10 minutes, and then you are right in the center of it all. Or you can walk to the bus center i just 5 minutes and jump on a bus. We enjoyed our stay.
