We are in our 60/70's and are visiting Malta for the first time in October 2010. We are looking for a comfortable apartment or hotel where we can easily explore the island by bus.
My husband is 75 so a lot of stairs with the luggage is a problem. We are fairly fit and know that Valetta has a lot of stairs but dont want to face 7/8 flights of stairs every time we come back after dinner.
We enjoy exploring everywhere, a nice dinner and a few wines in the evening, somewhere that doesnt close at 9.30.
Our budget is about 120 euro a night and we would like somewhere with a fridge where we can keep some drinks and nibbles cool. It has to be clean. A balcony would be nice but not essential.
I was recommended St Julians Hotel but have since found out that the rooms are over 9 floors, the hotel doesnt have a lift and the staff wont help with luggage.
Have also looked at the Phonicia Hotel as suggested but there rates are quite expensive.
Any suggestions really welcome.
