Perfect location for exploring Valletta and only a short walk from the bus station to see the rest of the island. The apartment is well furnished and has all the amenities for a comfortable stay. Excellent views from the roof terrace. Patrick was very helpful in answering questions leading up to the holiday and his property manager ,Daniel, was ecellent when we arrived. We would definitly use the apartment again if we return to Malta.
Stayed there with a friend, Suzanne, from 1st to 10th of September. A great location and a very comfortable apartment. Well appointed. It also had a terrific garden and outdoor area on the roof top. Great views. The street and its neighbours were also excellent
We had 4 wonderful nights at Valletta Apartments 19. Right from the first contact through to check-out, Patrick was an incredible host. He leaves no stone unturned and has anticipated every guest's needs with a well-equipped modern comfortable apartment in the heart of Valletta.
As a group of 4 adults, we needed to use both beds in the second smaller bedroom. While it was certainly a tight squeeze, there is ample cupboard space (and hangers!!!) to store your belongings. The smaller bedroom did not detract at all from our stay.
Any review must include mention of the fabulous roof terrace. It was truly our outdoor living room that was perfect for sunrise yoga, an afternoon siesta on the long chairs, a sundowner on the top terrace, or a night cap at the dining table (or all of the above...!!)
Patrick was far and away the most professional and reliable person who we dealt with for our 2 weeks in Malta.
We had a very nice 5 nights stay in appartment #2. We were warmly welcomed by Patrick who showed us around the appartment and explained how things worked. He mentioned that if we needed anything at all, he would be pleased to supply. I noticed that the appartment has been renovated with care, good materials and excellent workmanship. The view from the roof terrace is stunning. It has many areas which although shared with the other tennants can remain somewhat private. The appartment is well located and within easy walking distance to all the main Valetta attractions.
Patrick is justifiably proud of this apartment which has character, everything you need and a central location. The apartment has two televisions but there is so much to do and see we never even turned them on. There is a washing machine (you will have to buy washing powder/liquid - this is self catering). The beds are comfortable: no sagging in the middle. Discrete enclosed balcony where you can dry towels and beach gear. The roof terrace has great views over the harbour and the roofs of Valetta, remembering that Valetta is a heritage location.
A little searching of the more minor streets will find local shops for food (especially fresh fruit) and household essentials but beware that some are much more expensive than others. The apartment is only a short walk from the main Valetta shopping streets and St John's Cathedral. Well known brands are there including Wimpy and Marks & Spencer. For travel over the rest of the island, the main bus station is less than ten minutes walk away.
This is great place to stay if you do not want a chicken coop by a beach.
Recently stayed for a week under the excellent stewardship of Patrick and his delightful wife Dianne. Patrick was on board to meet us and provide a most comprehensive introduction to the apartment and his passion for them and the equally excellent roof top garden.
Pro’s – excellent size, very tastefully decorated, well equipped kitchen, gas cooker etc. Has a cable TV set up that receives some English speaking channels (mostly news based) and an real good DVD collection for your use. One bathroom with great hot water. Wireless internet was mostly good - Patrick is aware of drop outs and is fixing. A major bonus is the location at the top of St Paul St with very easy and smooth access to City Gates and many bars etc as well as the Upper Barrakka Gardens – a most for an ale and view.
Cons’ – advertised as 2 bed / sleeps 4. Main bed room and a very small single bed room. Sleeps 4 may be based on the sofa bed in the lounge / TV room. If this apartment had 4 adults with luggage and with one bathroom directly off the kitchen then it would be a very cozy and intimate arrangement indeed. Good for two and maybe one kid but after that ….... Not overly critical but a couple of really nice improvements – replace the $E1 towels with some $E5 ones (and spare set if more than a few days) and provide some laundry detergent for the washing machine (not across how many people carry washing powder in their international luggage or want to buy litre size bottles for a wash or two).
Would I stay again if in Malta – sure would. Could I recommend with honesty – sure can. Maybe just to meet Patrick and be engrossed in his passion for this apartments, garden, Valletta and Malta.
It was and remains a pleasure to have meet Patrick and Dianne.
This apartment block (3 owned by Patrick in the same building) is very central, in a nice part of Valetta, close to harbour below, 3 minutes from bus station, etc. It is equipped with everything you need and Patrick is very proud of his apartments and goes all out to make you feel welcome. The new lift is very useful and the roof terraces are lovely, although we didn't get to use them as it was a little chilly while we were there. But they do have fantastic views and many seats. Patrick has thought of everything there and in the apartments.
If you are looking to stay in Valletta, I would recommend them.
