Reviewed 31 May 2014 via mobile

I stayed in the Penthouse for 4 days. I was a bit worried about takinf this apartment. When I reached there it turned out to be opposite.
Pros: 10 min walk to the Bay Shopping Plaza and pubs, close to the public transport, great restaurants around, mini supermarket, secure entry, well equipped kitchen and laundry. Though people have mentioned that its a noisy, I would say that if u keep the doors open at night then may be yes. Im sure you would prefer to switch the air con on and sleep :)

The only downside is, no swimming pool.

Stayed May 2014, travelled on business

I took the apartment on the 4th floor, super view and fantastic balcony! It has all I needed for my few days stay, well it would be more than ok to live in it full time! It has a very nicely presented kitchen, dining area, bathroom and bedroom, all modern appliances and nothing shabby (even a tumble dryer). It has a great terrace that looks into the tranquil park opposite, nice for a suntan, breakfast, dinner or just watching the world go by. Its super central to all the shops, nightlife and transport. Its very modern, very clean, very high in standards and for the money it cannot be beaten. You are literally a stones throw from everything, it is a lovely apartment. I would stay again, for longer next time as the standards and location are perfect.

Room Tip: Can be noisy in summer, try for a higher floor.

I stayed here for one week in one of the penthouse suites (402) and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Great amenities with a washer, dryer, dishwasher, air con. Great shower.

The penthouse suites come with a nice rooftop balcony with chairs, tables and a sun lounger.

I only have a few points of slight concern but fairly minor;

In my room (402) there was a fairly loud buzzing sound which was audible in my bedroom, it started/stopped every 10 mins or so and was a bit annoying when trying to sleep. I think its the air con units on the roof that causes this. It wasn't very loud but was a bit distracting when trying to get to sleep.

The wifi internet was a bit sketchy and sometimes I couldn't connect, also sometimes the connection would drop out. It was quite annoying and happened at some critical times. Other rooms did seem to have a more reliable connection though.

There were ants in the kitchen so it was important to not leave food and crumbs around. I think this is just because it's a hot country and perhaps fairly normal.

The bedroom didn't have a window so there was no natural light in there, not a problem though, I didn't need that personally.

Overall I recommend this place and would certainly stay there again, although I might opt for a non-penthouse suite next time so I can get to sleep more easily without the buzzing noise.

Excellent value. Many amenities. Washer/dryer, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, stove/oven, wireless internet included, parking garage (extra), two bathrooms (one with bath, one with shower stall). Our stay felt like we were coming home each night and could kick back and relax.

Downsides: water temp/pressure varied immensely even during a single shower. A/C didn't work unless it was turned on for the whole building. (stayed in cooler weather, so it wasn't a huge deal, but an annoyance). Wireless internet was often very, very slow.

We stayed 8 days, 7 nights, 2 adults, 2 kids.

I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Ideal for anyone who wants the flexibility of a hotel with the space and homely feel of an apartment.

The rooms are airy and spacious, and the facilities are great, including an oven, hob and microwave, a large fridge and a washing machine and tumble drier. The bed was supremely comfortable.

There is a balcony overlooking the city, which is quite noisy with the window open, but catches the sun nicely in the late afternoon. As long as you're OK being right in the middle of a bustling city, these apartments will be OK for you.

The reception is not always manned, but if you check in when it isn't someone will come very quickly to attend to you. The staff were efficient and helpful. Once checked in, you are given a door code to let yourself in thereafter.

Some of the apartments are permanently occupied, and very soon it feels like your own apartment, even if you're only there for a couple of days.

Overall, excellent quality accommodation at a very reasonable price.

As a bonus, if you fancy getting to know some crazy ex-pats over a booze-fuelled live karaoke session, the Sun in Splendour bar next door is the place to be.

we came to Malta for our first visit from the 6-10 of March.
We were welcomed and showed to our apartment by Joseph, he was very helpful and talkative and anything we needed he was there right away. The apartment itself was lovely and had everything we needed, there is a brilliant supermarket just around the corner with everything we needed throughout our stay.
Very close to various transport links and just a few steps from the local night life.
I would recommend these apartments for business and pleasure. Will definitely like to stay again.
Also the parking was very very useful as parking in Malta is terrible..
