New apartment and called Gold because of the adopted colour scheme, this apartment offers a myriad of other experiences to please both the romantic and the young at heart. Gold provides excellent views of the seafront where all the major ferry boats moor (harbour/round Malta cruises, and Gozo/Comino/Valletta visits). The open top tourist and route buses' terminus is across the road, as is the seaplane departure point, making sightseeing a trouble-free delight. Restaurants and cafes abound in this locality, creating a pleasurable hub of activity. This 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment (main with en-suite), boasts a large kitchen/dining room which combines with the lounge area (the 2 sofa beds can sleep a further 2 if required), including gas fireplace, 42' TV and sound system. Adjacent is a 7’ x 4’ snooker table plus a bar for one’s own entertainment. Uniquely created is the ‘retreat area’ where a large Jacuzzi is enticingly situated in a romantically candle-lit alcove.

Well equipped central apartment
Spacious apartment best suited for four people I would say. Superbly placed for both bus and ferry.
Not really as described and not suitable for two couples.
We selected the apartment based on the description and photos provided. We were two couples travelling and booked apartments in many cities to accommodate two couples with bedrooms similar and two bathrooms. The description for the second bedroom said the two single beds could easily be converted to sleep a couple. When we arrived the bedding had not been configured even though we had requested the bedding to be reconfigured.The owner arranged for the beds to be reconfigured which was not an easy task! It resulted in one side of the bed being against the wall and the removal of a chest of drawers from the bedroom. The second bedroom and bathroom are very small and much more suited to a family with young children. The property included a pool table and when we arrived there was one cue with no tip and very little chalk. The owners did arrange delivery of more cues and chalk. The towels, sheets and pillows were of poor quality. The owners arranged for four new pillows to be purchased and delivered and for more towels and the sheets to be replaced. The replacements were not much better quality than the original linen supplied. The wifi did not work which the owners did do their best to resolve. Finally wifi provided on the third day. The lounges double as sofa beds and are not very comfortable to sit on. The kitchen was reasonably well stocked with cutlery, crockery and cooking utensils and dishwashing detergent was provided. An allowance of 14kwph per day of electricity is included. We were reluctant to use the AC even though it was hot in the apartment as we were concerned about the electricity allowance. We were four adults who were very conservative with the use of electricity and the average we used over five days was around 10kwph per day. If we used the AC more we feel we would have certainly exceeded the allowance. Hot water in each bathroom needs to be heated for around half an hour before use and then turned off otherwise the electricity usage will be exceeded. The apartment is in a great position and close to the ferry to Valletta, local buses and great restaurants. The owners were extremely responsive and professionally dealt with the issues. Not an ideal apartment for two couples but great for a family with children.
The apartment could not have been better placed for us as it was only a very short distance to get on public transport, hop on hop off buses and the ferry to Valetta. We had plenty of room and there was space for the three of us on the balcony. Wifi was free. We did not get round to using the jacuzzi and we hardly used the cooking facilities, scrambled eggs and toast a couple of mornings as there were plenty of restaurants round about to have breakfast, lunch or dinner
Central to all Amenities, Great Location
We stayed here for a long weekend. Apartment is close to shops, restaurants and the sea front with ferries across to Valletta and boat trips to Gozo, also bus stops close by for Gozo Ferry Port (1 hour trip each way), 40 minute walk to St Julians Bay. Lovely clean apartment, with 2 bathrooms (one en-suite to main bedroom). Second Bedroom is two single beds. We arranged Taxi through the apartments owners, no problems here, collected us from airport on time and dropped us back at the end of our stay. We enjoyed staying here and for a short visit it was a perfect place being close to all Amenities.
Very clean and functional. Great position in Sliema
As above. Easy to take the ferry to Valletta. Lots of nice places to eat below
A friend and I stayed in this apartment in September, 2017. We never sat in the living room nor did we play snooker. We enjoyed sitting on the small balcony to watch the street action below as well as to enjoy the sea view off to the the right. We were picked up at the airport by the owner's son in a very untidy car, actually a dirty car, both inside and out. The boot was full of personal belongings and the seats were in need of a thorough cleaning. The balcony chairs were replaced in a timely manner when it was pointed out that they were in disrepair. However, the loose door handle (loose to the point it was unusable) in the second bedroom. was never fixed. When this was pointed out to the son, we were told we should have called again. Our security deposit was returned upon check out. The notebook with pertinent information was in need of replacement as it showed great wear and usage and was unsightly. Actually, management needs to up their game as this is a fabulous location. It has a great view from the balcony, is close to the ferry and bus stop and there are many restaurants very nearby. The grocery store is also near. So, would I, personally, stay here again? I think so. I would just not expect much from management and just enjoy what is good about this apartment. It has what you need, including a washing machine. The two bedrooms and two baths suited us well.
Sliema and the coastline up to neighbouring St Julian's constitutes Malta's main coastal resort. A centre for shopping, restaurants and caf'e life. Sliema is also a major commercial and residential area and houses several of Malta's most recent hotels. Sliema, which means `peace', was once a quiet fishing town on the peninsula across Grand Harbour from Valletta. The Sliema promontory offers on one side stunning views across to Valletta and on the other, open sea views. The promenade, which runs for several kilometres from Gzira just south of Sliema to St Julian's, is ideal for walking, jogging or just relaxation. There are plenty of seats along the promenade, which is also dotted with little bistros, restaurants, cafes, ice-cream parlours and the like. On summer evenings the seafront becomes a sociable meeting place for locals and tourists alike. The coastline has two tower fortifications: a watch tower built in the 17th century; the other was built by the British in the 1880's.
