“Beautiful stay Beautiful location”
Reviewed 18 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

Our stay in Mdina was an amazing experience and mostly thanks to our wonderful hosts Andrea and Joanna. The apartment is ideally located in the picturesque Cathedral square , which is central to the Silent City. It is beautifullly appointed, very comfortable and ideal for either a short or long stay. Great restaurants are just a short walk away. Andrea arranged an great local driver who picked us up from the airport and was always available during our stay at a very reasonable price .
This is highly recommended stay - you couldn't ask for better.

“Great apartment!”
Reviewed 30 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

My husband and I stayed four nights here recently. It was a good size for two people--lots of space, including a living room upstairs, a sitting room downstairs, a large shower room and separate room with sink and toilet. Everything was in working order. As others have noted, the view from the second floor onto St. Paul's Square is really amazing. The kitchen is well-equipped, and the washing machine was a lifesaver. Although there's no dryer, clothes dry very quickly on a rack (provided in the apartment).

The only negative we experienced was that Mdina, and particularly the area right in front of the apartment, was often loud and crowded. At night, things usually calm down, except if there's a party or night tours moving through the streets of the tiny town. If you need a break from the tourist zoo, I suggest visiting Rabat, which we did several times. Lots of things to see over there, and far fewer people. It's only a 10 minute walk from the apartment.

As for food, many items can be bought at a van that pulls up most days right in St. Paul's Square. They have milk, bread, cheese, etc. There's also a larger grocery store in Rabat, which we visited several times. If you're looking for slightly cheaper food (Mdina is a little pricey), try Il-Baxa and Baba Ganoush, both in Rabat. They have vegetarian options, and excellent food.

We appreciated how helpful Andrea and Joanna were throughout the booking and check-in process. We would definitely stay here again.

“Great location in a lovely setting”
Reviewed 11 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

A further endorsement for this property and hospitality provided by Joanna and Andrea which is situated on the main square in Mdina.

We timed our visit to coincide with Medieval Festival which takes over Mdina annually in April/ May for one weekend. We had spectacular views of the 'action' from the balcony on the first floor (we managed to eat breakfast out there too) and the people watching was second to none. The Festival really added a different dimension to our experience in the perfect setting.

Thank you

“Mdina”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The location and atmosphere were wonderful. Would recommend staying in Mdina and in this apartment. The apartment was clean and inviting and the owner was really accommodating. We arrived after 1:00 a.m. and we're greeted warm heartedly by Joanna. The only consideration for some may be the steep circular staircase. We would definitely recommend the apartment to our friends.

“Super location and outlook”
Reviewed 18 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

This is an extremely comfortable and well appointed one bedroom house looking straight across at the Cathedral. From the upstairs sitting room and bedroom the view is breathtaking. The building is historic and the owners live next door, very obliging and helpful. All communications were exceptionally prompt and detailed. Being within the citadel means you can enjoy the different parts of the day: silent mornings and evenings and the bustle of daytime. Highly recommended. Many thanks, Joanna, for all your kindness.

“Lovely stay in Mdina”

I last visited Malta 27 years ago and wished to visit the Island again . Mdina was the place of choice and the house of character was a lovely place to stay and return to at the end of the day. Andrea could not have been more hospitable. Mdina is a place you must not miss for that extra experience on the island of Malta.

“Very unusual and interesting opportunity to stay in Mdina”
Reviewed 30 December 2016 for a stay in November 2016

A rare chance to stay in a prime location on the cathedral square in the walled city of Mdina. We were met by the parents of Andrea, who live next door. Joanna is a charming hostess. The apartment is quite small and the bathroom has a very low sloping ceiling. After showering the water lies on the floor making use of the basin difficult until you have squeegeed the water away. Also be aware that the spiral staircase to the bedroom and sitting room is very steep and tight and requires some care. What an unrivalled position it has, to be able to sit out on your own little balcony (with cake from Fontanella maybe!) overlooking the cathedral, its square, the ancient buildings around it and along the road leading away - the ultimate in people watching! The beds were exceedingly comfortable and the cathedral chimes didn't bother us.
The main gate car park is quite busy but there are two other gates (Greek gate and nearby it a small gate that leads towards the old railway station), both of which have quieter car parking areas. Wonderful walking around this city at night with its dim lighting. Wonderful also to dine downstairs in candlelight with the outer door open and the inner glass door closed - at least once some people approached thinking it was an intimate exclusive restaurant!
We were both surprised by how much traffic (delivery vans, cars etc) passes by bearing in mind you require a permit and the city is very small, it is not quite the "Silent city" that is claimed, but compared with any Maltese main road it is pretty good!

Dear Andrew,

Many thanks for the review. We rarely reply to reviews, but just feel the need to comment on this 'lukewarm' review, as I believe it is our only 4 star review on the property (though I may be mistaken).

Indeed the bathroom is as you described, this is an unfortunate reality of these old houses that were not originally designed when they were built for comfort. It is only our extensive renovations that made it possible to host guests in the home as it stands now. The spiral staircase does take some getting used to - we hope our photos are accurate and indicate this in our online advertisement.

Also very true about the traffic - however this is mostly restricted to the late morning/early afternoon. Once it gets later, I believe that the city can indeed rightfully claim to be the "Silent City" of Malta, but perhaps I am biased in this regard.

We are happy that you enjoyed the location, it is indeed unrivalled as it overlooks the main square, and the atmosphere of the home. Wishing you all the best for future travels,

Andrea and Joanna
