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.

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.
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.
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 fun apartment in a great location
Feb 2017 (UK half term break)
The view of Valetta from Silema is fabulous.
You can see the Silema harbour from the balcony.
The apartment was good for our family of 4 (2 young boys).
The bedrooms are next to each other - one double, one twin - so they were confident going to sleep at night in a new place. They are at the back of the apartment so quiet and dark at night.
The TV has sky channels and the pool table was great fun. We couldn't log on to the home internet for some reason (but I expect it was due to our phones rather than the connection which is made free by the owner and has a strong signal). There is local free wifi in range so it wasn't a problem.
We tried to fill the hot tub twice but couldn't get enough hot water to submerge the jets (it's so big!) but the children loved splashing in it anyway. I guess we could have left the hot water immersion on for longer but didn't get round to doing this and felt bad wasting the energy!
Paul was very helpful when we needed help lighting the gas oven and got back in touch with us immediately.
I would have appreciated some basics in the kitchen e.g. olive oil, salt and pepper, sugar, maybe even a tea or coffee for our arrival, and soap in both bathrooms. However, this was not promised up front and perhaps other people wouldn't like to share, so I can see why some owners do not provide this.
A supermarket is in easy walking distance up the hill behind the apartment (not open on Sunday) and there are a few convenience stores along the Silema front underneath the apartment where you can buy milk, fruit, bread or postcards.
Parking was convenient - we always managed to find a space near the apartment - and it was free on the road.
Bars and eateries are directly below the apartment. There is a Dr Juice bar 20m away which the boys loved and a few ice cream parlours.
There are lots of companies offering boat tours and tourist experiences on the promenade opposite the apartment. We didn't use any of these but instead took the local ferry (almost opposite M&S) across to Valetta for about 2.80euro return. It takes about 10 mins and they shuttle backwards and forwards all day.
We loved our trip to Malta. The weather was beautiful. About 16-18C most days and sunshine/blue skies. Just what we needed to break from the UK grey.

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.
