The location is excellent: short walk from a bunch of important bus stops, close to some nice restaurants, yet really calm. I would advise anybody who wants to see a lot of Malta (and not just lay on the beach all day) to get a place to stay either in Naxxar (what you're reading now) or else in Mosta, close to one of the main bus-transfer sites.
The owners are really there to help you. They give insightful local advise about stuff to do (we followed some suggestions, and they were really value-adding), they help you book stuff, and they've got fun stories. You get freshly sliced fruit for breakfast. The place is really clean and tidy, and it's cosily decorated. It really feels like a welcoming home away from home.
We did not book an air-conditioned room (we had "Floriana"), so we were kind of hot. Of course there was a fan, but I would recommend everybody to specifically book one of their air-conditioned rooms, because then everything would have been perfect. Note: our room was advertised as not having air-conditioning, so it's not their fault - just a tip, Malta gets very warm. Also, don't forget that Malta uses those bulky AC-plugs from the UK. Fortunately, we could borrow one from the owners.
The Bathroom was small; really small. But we stayed at another place as well, and that was even smaller, so I guess the Maltese in general are just not into spacious showers, or something.
If you cannot stand dogs: the owners have a Maltese terrier. But she's really cute if you're not 100% anti-canine! I generally don't like dogs, but Daisy the terrier was an exception.
If you're doubting between this one or another one, it's a good bet that you'll want this one.
