“Brilliant Views and a lovely apartment”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Everything that has been said in previous reviews is absolutely true about this lovely apartment. We really enjoyed staying here and found it a wonderful base for our week in Malta. We stayed in apartment 1 and found it a nice change to have the ground floor apartment but still have wonderful views over the Grand Harbour comings and goings and across to Vittoriosa. In other places during our Europe trip we needed to climb up lots of flights of stairs to get a room with a view. The apartment is very well set up with a great little kitchen and bathroom and a little dining table. The bed was very comfortable and the views from the little sitting alcove took your breath away! Valletta is an amazing city with so much history to soak up but it was very easy to get out and explore Malta with fantastically cheap buses just a short walk away. A week long bus pass is a very cheap 6.50 Euros!
Michael was a wonderful host, very pleasant and helpful and nice to talk too. We enjoyed meeting George his ginger cat too. It was lovely to have a welcome pack of delicious Maltese bread and other goodies waiting for us at the apartment. I have no hesitation in saying that we loved our stay at this apartment and would go back if we could in a heartbeat!

“Excellent place -”
Reviewed 6 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Before booking this apartment i have read all reviews and i have to admit that all good that has been said about Michael and his Valletta studios is true! The location was superb, we stayed in the apartment 1 and it has excellent view on Grand Harbor. Apartment is not very big, but it is big enough for a couple. Everything was clean and neat. There is all you might need, fully equipped kitchen, iron, tv with dvd. Michael was very helpful, gave us useful advices, bought for us some food (we arrived on sunday and groceries are closed)
Highly recommend to stay in this apartment!

“Very special apartment in Valletta with magnificent harbour view”

Our host Michael played an indispensable role in our wonderful first visit to Malta. He was most attentive to our needs during our 2 week stay, and went above and beyond expectations by bringing his lovely ginger cat George to visit us at our request! He is the kindest of hosts!
The apartment is delightful; clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Its location is perfect with a magnificent view of Grand Harbour from the Maltese balcony as well as being within the old ramparts and close to all Valletta sights. It offers easy access to the bus station for travel to the rest of the island and Gozo by ferry. It is worth taking advantage of the transport system as it is inexpensive and reliable.
Getting groceries is easily accomplished at the local market- open until 1 pm Monday-Saturday. There are excellent restaurants within easy walking distance. Do not overlook Maltese wine- enjoyable and good value.
We found the local people quiet, courteous, cultured and justifiably proud of their Island's rich heritage. We had a superb vacation in Malta and hope to return soon, but only if we can stay at Michael's Valletta Studios!

The apartment was ideal for us - we wanted to be close to the centre of town but not 'too' close, we used it as a base to visit from but also cooked a few meals in the kitchen, which had a few essentials already in the fridge.

It was an easy walk to the centre plus a couple of good local spots for a drink. We were also sight seeing around the island and it was about 10 minutes walk to the Bus Station.

Michael was extremely helpful and a very enthusiastic host - suggesting places to eat, we are vegetarian, and some places to visit according to our interests.

We'd definitely stay here again if (when!) we are going back to Malta.

“Fantastic Apartment in Valletta”

We recently stayed for 2 weeks in apartment 3. The apartment was just great, with real attention to detail...it's often the small things that make your stay more pleasant. The apartment was comfortable and exceptionally well equipped, it's hard to find fault with it really.
The owner, Michael was so helpful and friendly despite going through a stressfull house purchase at the time we stayed. His ridiculously handsome sidekick, George, was more than happy to check on us regularly..
Michael had thoughtfully provided bread and other staples, along with a bunch of freesias on our arrival and this level of service was maintained throughout our stay. We were made to feel very welcome and more of a friend than a mere tenant.
The apartment could not have been in a better location. Central, but quiet.
Altogether, a very good holiday flat which I will recommend to everyone.

From the start all correspondence with Michael was easy and friendly. The apartment looked great from the photos and when we arrived we were pleased to see it lived up to those images. We were met by Trudy the caretaker and Michael came a short while later to make sure we were ok and give us some pointers for places to eat and get groceries in Vallettta. Not only in a great location but the apartment was clean and stylish and I would definitely come back here or recommend it to a friend.
