“What a very nice place!”
Reviewed 27 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My wife and I booked Mariella's apartment for a week and we were not disappointed. Although a small one bedroom apartment it was more than big enough for two people with surprisingly an excellent sized bedroom with lots of space to store your luggage.

The apartment is literally a stones throw away from Birgu square where there are some very nice local and traditional cafes and eateries. It is also a short walk from the waterfront and close to other attractions. All in all an excellent location.

The apartment has everything you need for your stay including a washing machine. Mariella is easily contactable and happily answers any questions you might have. Definitely a place worth considering when staying in Birgu.

“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed 11 July 2016 for a stay in June 2016

This was a lovely apartment, right in the centre of Birgu which is not far from Valetta. Everything was clean and neat. Beautiful tiles, nicely decorated, modern bathroom. We got a few bits of biscuits, and local wine which was a surprise, and a good way to introduce you to Maltese products. Currently they are working on the road which was bugging us a few times, but Mariella the owner of course has no power over this. If you need a beautiful affordable place to stay which isn't far from the capitol city, and yet is still in a quiet village, well this is it! We recommmend!

“A good Knights stay”
Reviewed 22 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016

A very pleasant location to rub shoulders with charming locals in a very impressive locality on the Grand Harbour of Malta. Very impressive range of resturants and eateries within walking distance, great access to bus and ferries to Valletta. Lots of interesting pedestrian paths for walks around the waterfront fior either running or brisk walks. The apartment is a good size for a couple and even though it is an appartmment in a block of four, it is surprisingly nice and quiet. The apartment is well stocked with everything you need on top of a generous welcome package of delicacies left by Mariella. Wifi access 10/10. Hopefully the roadworks will be completed soon, but after saying this, it was a good laugh to see how life carries on in the street around such a project, this sums up the Maltese way of looking at life, there are better things to worry about. My wife and I would definitely stay there again and loved it.

“Very comfortable flat indeed.”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were collected by Mari and delivered to the flat. They are replacing the complete road/pavement outside, but that made very little difference to us and the work should be finished by August 2016. The situation is very handy for getting to Valetta both by bus and ferry.
All in all, we had a lovely holiday and the flat was very comfortable. We will return, I am sure of that!

“Lovely flat in beautiful Birgu”
Reviewed 24 January 2016 for a stay in October 2015

The flat looks a lot better in real than on photos. The place is clean and as described.

It is placed in Birgu/Vitorriosa - an old district with magical atmosphere, especialy in the evening. There is a ferry nearby to get to center of Valetta in less than half an hour.

We truly recommend it.

“A real Maltese experience”
Reviewed 9 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The apartment is ideal for two people. Good sized bedroom with lots of storage space, bathroom with wash basin and shower, small kitchen area, fair sized sitting area with sofa and small table and chairs by the window overlooking the street.
The apartment is in a quiet street, on the first floor of a traditional building (i.e. second floor for any Americans!) accessed by a stone staircase probably unsuitable for anyone with a walking disability. Typical Maltese furnishings, a lovely place for anyone wanting a traditional and atmospheric place to stay. This includes a clothes line outside the bedroom window, to hang your washing to dry over a little alleyway.
Mariella arranged a taxi to and from the airport, and kindly left us a small supply of bread, cheese, milk etc to get us started.
It's five or six minutes walk to the bus stop for travel to Valletta or elsewhere, and less than ten minutes walk to the water taxi to Valletta. Lots of cafes and restaurants nearby, also a couple of small shops for basic groceries. (You have to go a bit further afield to find a larger supermarket). Very close to the waterfront for admiring the superyachts!
We stayed for two weeks and had a very enjoyable time. We may well return on a future occasion.
