Where to stay in Valletta

I'm sure it has been asked a million times, but we are first-timers to Malta and in our early sixties. We will be staying for 3 weeks - last week of May, first 2 of June. We like history, museums, city life, walking. We are looking for a place close to public transport and would love to have some outdoor space. Are there grocery stores in downtown Valletta, also would like proximity to fresh fish shops ... and wine of course :-) Is it safe in the city at night?

thx much

The Phoenicia Hotel just outside the City gates in Floriana would, I think be the best choice. Yes, there are wine outlets and grocery stores that also sell wine in Valletta - it is the capital City when all is said and done.

It is safe in the City of an evening, rather on the quiet side actually, and there are some excellent restaurants and wine bars.

The main bus terminal is within a five minute walk, so no problem getting to other parts of the island (weekly ticket 12 euro)

With your reference to fresh fish shops, are you wanting self catering accommodation? There is some in Valletta, but very little, and outdoor spaces within the city hardly exist and are at a premium. As fir fresh fish, that comes from the fish man and his truck!

Any accommodation towards the lower end means walking up hills back up to the centre - not for nothing did Byron curse it as a street of stairs! - or on the flat around the outside.

Three weeks - go 2 centre.

Either Valletta / Mellieha or Valletta / Gozo.
