Valletta is 7 min walk away apartment

Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Apartment in Floriana, Nr. Valletta, Malta, Malta-Gozo - Safe and central yet peacful location just 7 min walk away from the capital city Valletta

Experience the Maltese way of life in this lovely corner, cosy, ground floor Maisonette which is just a few minutes walk away from the historic capital city Valletta and the main bus terminus. This is a typical Maltese dwelling and is furnished as such. It is spacious and very well kept. It has a private entrance , large air conditioned sitting room and a separate well equipped kitchen/dining room. Two air conditioned Bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower/toilet and a small yard. Sleeps 10- Main bedroom with double bed, another bedroom with 4 single beds and 2 comfortable sofa beds in the living room.

Whilst it is situated in a typical quite and safe Maltese neighbourhood it is at the same time in a unique location, right upon the fortifications built by the knights of St. John overlooking Malta's Grand Harbour. Enjoy pleasant strolls in the quite nearby public garden whilst enjoying breath taking views of Grand Harbour or else walk for a few minutes more to end up in Valletta- The European Capital City for Culture 2018 which is also a World Heritage Site. It is equally easy to get the ferry to cross the Grand Harbour to reach the 3 cities which are also a must when one is visiting Malta. A children's playground can also be reached within a few minutes. Combine the above to the fact the main bus terminal is just a few minutes away and that all buses pass from Floriana and one can easily come to the conclusion that strategically Floriana is one of the best places to stay at when visiting Malta. Floriana itself hosts numerous events throughout the year such as the Carnival Parade, the Isle of MTV concert, Firework Festivals and more.

The apartment is at ground floor level. The entire apartment and yard are accessible to the guest

Fabulous traditional Maltese ground floor apartment with everything you need. Patrick met us at the airport & gave us a quick tour & general info guide on the way, & Anna was waiting on arrival. The photos really don't do this large apartment justice, and there is so much space. The location is perfect, & you can be right in the centre of Valletta in less than 10 minutes by simply walking through the bus terminal. The Waterfront is fabulous with Shops & Restaurants & less than 5 minutes walk away. On our second day we woke up to find 3 large cruise liners on the other side of the wall right outside the apartment, where you can sit in the communal garden area to relax at any time. Very clean apartment run by a lovely friendly couple, excellent value for money and would definitely return.

Great base for Malta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week in February. We stayed as a couple, but there's plenty of room for 4, with 2 good bedrooms and bathrooms. It's a clean, comfortable flat and in a very good location from which to explore Malta. 10 minutes pleasant walk gets you into Valletta proper, and a little less than that to the central bus station, from where you can pick up buses to all island locations. You can also reach the nearer bus stops within 5 minutes walk. I wouldn't recommend hiring a car, as the driving seems chaotic to the visitor, and the bus service is pretty good, fun and very cheap.

Floriana itself is a quiet, mainly residential area, and has a selection of quirky local shops, where they manage to cram everything you can want into a very small space, at reasonable prices. Right outside the flat you can look down onto the whole Valletta dock area - always something to see. We even got a little February sunshine to sit on a bench, have a drink and watch things!

The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, and the flat is stocked with a comprehensive range of tourist information about Malta and Gozo. We even got picked up at the airport and driven to the flat. Communication prior to the holiday was good.

We thoroughly recommend this property.

Location

From the Owner

The apartment is situated in a very ideal location for bringing up a family, quite and safe neighbourhood, close to all amenities with access to public garden and spaces. It used to be our home but then became too small when as the family got bigger. We still take care of it as it were still our home and it does give a homely feeling to those who stay.
