“The penthouse was great and the views were fantastic”

This was a beautiful apartment and really well equipped and furnished. The views from the terrace were amazing, but the spiral staircase was not for the faint-hearted or the vertically challenged. We did make a lot of use of the lower balcony area, it was great to have some outside space. The location is ideal, close to the Siema Ferry (Carrefour Supermarket & harbour cruises) and also close to the centre of Valletta and the bus terminus to get to the rest of the island. Our taxi from the airport had trouble finding the address as we didn't have a house number. The website is not great at flagging up the actual address, it is buried in the booking form - NUMBER 21. I missed it and we got dropped off a long way from the apartment.

“Refined, comfortable and perfectly located for exploring Valletta”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

We loved staying here. The penthouse has been finished to a high standard and, with its wonderful view over the harbour (not Grand Harbour...the other one that I can't spell!) felt spacious and very classy. We didn't need the second bedroom but it looked as pleasant as the rest of the apartment and would have been fine for another adult couple or for youngsters...probably not very young children though.
Our landlady was on hand during the day and her agent was efficient and reliable.
The kitchen was well equipped with good quality utensils but one or two items might reasonably have been expected: a colander, certainly, and perhaps some scissors, for example.
The bathroom is comfortable and very practical, but given the letting rates, we felt perhaps that electricity costs (largely for the water heater) should have been included in the price. (We were "credited" a certain number of units, but not offered a refund for those we didn't use!) While I'm niggling, I should mention that the loo was a pain to flush, and " locking" the doors onto the balcony involved jamming a couple of pieces of wood into the grooves...
The television showed a very limited range of programmes of interest to us (Brits). When we did use it, a basic instruction sheet would have been useful for all the zappers, and perhaps a selection of DVDs could be available (although admittedly we noted that they seemed to be expensive in the local shops).
The lower balcony was fine for relaxing, and although the upper roof terrace had great views, it was rather windy and lugging furniture up the spiral staircase was more trouble than it was worth.
For our first visit to Malta this apartment was perfectly located. Plenty of restaurants are close by, the shops and tourist attractions too, and for exploring further afield, the bus station is just a few minutes' walk up the hill. The bakery just a door or so away was a lovely bonus...the fresh bread fantastic and the pizzas not bad either!

“Charm and style”
Reviewed 29 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

This apartment is in a great location and is very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and tons of room. The owner was at the ready to help with any issue or query and this assistance was greatly appreciated . The staircase to the 2nd bedroom needs to be considered though.

“Fanastic rooftop view & location”

We stayed here for two nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay... We then spent 5 nights at the old mint apartment no1 and would recommend apartment 1 if you have young children. The view from the rooftop is amazing and the balcony was very spacious especially if you have friends or a group of you.
Location is fantastic with easy access to the main hub (only a 2 minute walk) and we found parking pretty easy depending on time of day.
Wonderful facilities in the apartment and amazing history within the entrance. the total process was smooth and everyone we dealt with was very friendly.

“lovely appartment in a wonderful city to see interesting sights”
Reviewed 2 September 2012 for a stay in April 2012

Valletta has steep and narrow streets - so even if the flat has an elevator it might be difficult for people with walking disabilities to get to the house
and - if neighbours want to "reserve" the elevator on their floor - one has to walk downstairs to "set the elevator free" - so at least one family member should be able to walk without problems, one (nice and cool) bedroom can be reached over romantic and several 100 years old spiral stairs - we did love to go there.
