          You arrive in the narrow main street of Senglea and drag your cases a few yards down to the front of the Lobster House. Below, only a few steps away, brightly coloured Maltese skiffs bob in the harbour. The house is tall and thin with nicely renovated sandstone walls on the stairs and modern and immaculate shower rooms. The bedrooms are basic, tidy and pretty comfortable. My wife and I slept in the top bedroom with the skylight to the roof thrown open to the night. Our 17 year old and friend spread themselves across the two bedrooms below . The roof top view of the harbour and Marina is to die for. At about 6pm the heat starts to abate and it's perfect for wine and pre dinner chat. The house has no air con but plenty of fans. It was hot outside but we didn't suffer. The open plan living area has a box window area and all the windows can be lifted for air. There are small supermarkets and greengrocers a few seconds away and a pharmacy. We moved backwards and forwards between here and Valetta by Ferry shuttle with a spectacular lift into the Barraka Gardens and the main centre of Valetta when you disembark . The Ferry is a stroll round the harbour, cheap, every half an hour and takes less than ten minutes. (Wish I knew there were water taxis for even less and nearer, but whatthehell it's fun!). Aside from the cafe the owner recommends, you can also stroll round the harbour to Vittoriosa and more restaurants. We were there for the festival of San Lawrenz (be prepared for fireworks and endless explosions) but the street procession, bands and atmosphere were marvellous. All the harbour is lit up and countless banners and pennents flap in the breeze during the day. Perfect, inexpensive, atmospheric and clean little house to use as a base for getting into the fascinating history of the Knights and Malta. Oh and Guze Bistro in Valetta is superb!

          Una Favola!

          5 of 5
          Eravamo già stati a Malta parecchie volte per lavoro pochi anni fa ma avevamo pensato di passare una settimana a febbraio a goderci l'isola con tutte le sue mille sfaccettature. Abbiamo scelto questo appartamento siccome il panorama sembrava spettacolare. E invece era più di così; era semplicemente favoloso, incantevole. Le foto non rendono. Questo appartamento è in una posizione stupenda, vicinissima alla barca che si può prendere per arrivare a Valletta in pochi minuti. Al nostro arrivo, Joseph ci stava aspettando, è stato gentilissimo e disponibilissimo. Ci siamo sentito davvero i benvenuti; avevano preparato pure una bottiglia di vino in frigo, della birra, pane, caffè, persino una busta con degli ottimi prodotti naturali (shampoo, bagno schiuma, crema idratante). Abbiamo passato tantissimo tempo qui e di sicuro ritorneremo al più presto.

          Real taste of Malta

          4 of 5
          After this visit we love Malta and for sure will come back! The flat is ideally situated – in the old, quiet part with really amazing view of Valetta and Harbour and has its unique spirit. So evenings in the living room were very nice and relaxing. Renovated bathroom also nice and comfortable. The quality of bedrooms rather low, furniture old and not useful at all. For us it wasn’t a big issue, because living room with its view compensated all the inconvenience, but small improvements in bedrooms could make a stay more comfortable.
