Two bed roomed flat recently refurbished situated at the much sought picturesque area of St. Julian's/ Paceville and just in front Malta's prestigious area of Portomaso. The apartment is ideally placed in the centre of Malta's life, yet, as situated, enjoying a quiet relaxing atmosphere, minutes away from St. George' s Bay (sandy beach), opposite a supermarket and one minute away from the efficient public bus service of the area. The flat Consists of an open plan air conditioned kitchen living dining, 2 bedrooms ( 2 extra sleeping places in the living room) bathroom with full use of roof area. The place enjoys plenty of bright sunlight and is close to all amenities - Free Wifi and Led TV are also available. The flat is situated on the second floor with a comfortable flight of stairs and a shared roof terrace. Valletta and Mdina can be reached within ten minutes by bus whilst still being in the centre of Malta' s night life. The airport is connected by shuttle bus or a short ride by cab. A late check in fee may be applied. parking in the vicinity.
Great location (close to all the key bus routes, nice restaurants in spinola bay, and clubning in Paceville), also very resposive to arrange check ins an out etc.
The photos are accurate but clearly represent the best parts of the flat (e.g lounge area), other parts are ok but not so immaculate (e.g. common staircase, a couple of humidity spot on the ceiling)
Overall I would recommend the place, but do not expect a luxury accommodation (think 3 star family run hotel vs. the Sheraton)
Joseph was quickly available and helpful when we had to call him to ask for assistance with the shower. However the apartment needs renovation and is quite expensive considering the amount we paid.
+: location and wifi
-: dirty linen (the covers had a strange smell), absence of wall hooks to hang clothes, humidity, only one small heater available
It can be a good choice only if you intend to stay most of the time outside and do not care about comfort.
Silva...this review is surprising me, your notes are contrasting with all other reviews! tis is pretty strange, isn't it? ok, reviews are the expression of one personal experience, and I accept all comments, but what you wrote is totally opposite of other guests' comments - moreover I did not receive any complain?call during your stay - we had to be in contact with a small issue with hot water (you switched off the boiler for mistake), we could have expressed your concerns immediately. Thanks anyway for your stay
Nous n'avons pas rencontré notre hôte mais son assistante. La météo était mauvaise pendant notre séjour. la clim était supposée faire chauffage, malheureusement cette clim semble cassée. Il a fait entre 10 et 15°c dans l'appartement. Nous avons prévenu l'hôte, il nous a demandé d'attendre le lendemain 10h que quelqu'un vienne vérifier l'installation, personne n'est venu...
De plus, il manque un rideau de douche et le lit superposé est cassé, impossible de fixer l'échelle pour monter dans le lit du haut.
Je vous remercie de votre avis, je ne ai honnêtement dire que je suis un peu surpris à ce sujet. Vous avez parfaitement raison sur le échelle de lit, il doit être remplacé, et je vais le faire dès que possible. En ce qui concerne le système de chauffage, comme convenu le lendemain matin, je ai envoyé le technicien - quand sur la place il m'appelle disant qu'il semblait d'être dans une île tropicale avec le chauffage en plain marche. Tout était ok selon lui. Ni le soir, ni le lendemain, je ai reçu rétroaction négative par vous. Je ai supposé alors le premier jour vous aviez quelques-unes des difficultés mais ensuite vous étiez en mesure de fonctionner sur le courant alternatif. Seulement maintenant, lisant votre commentaire, je figure sur le problème n'a pas été résolu. Je suis vraiment désolé, mais vous devez admettre tous la situation semble un peu bizarre.
En ce qui concerne le rideau de douche, la salle de bains a été entièrement rénové le moins dernière , et je ai décidé, suivant la tendance au design contemporain, de mettre un 'walk in shower" .... et cela n'a pas un rideau ...
Thank you for your review, I have honestly to say I am a bit surprised about it. You are perfectly right about the bed ladder, it has to be replaced, and I will do it as soon as possible. Regarding the heating system, as agreed the following morning I sent the technician - when on the place he called be telling that it seemed to be in a tropical island with the system working at its much power. Every thing was ok according to him. Neither the evening, neither the following day I had any negative feed back by you. I assumed then the first day you had just some difficulty but afterward you were able to operating on the AC. Only now, reading your comment, I figure out the problem was not solved. I am really sorry about that, but you have to admit all the situation sounds a bit weird.
Regarding the shower curtain, the bathroom was totally renovated last moth, and I decided, following the contemporary trend in design, to put a walk in shower....and this has not a curtain...
The location was excellent. 1 minute walk from Paceville clubs and bars. Taxi from the airport costs 20euros. Joseph was an extremely friendly host.
Apartment is ok in general but it is not as good as it is seen in pics. Pics are not fake but the bad parts are not in the pictures. Apartment needs some renovation, especially the bathroom and second bedroom. Also the part where you hang the ladder to climb to the bed was half broken. And there was a smell in the bathroom.
U dont need to ask me twice to write a review for this apt. I loved it and will book again. It fitted all my needs

The flat was comfortable and in a great location, just minutes from the busy nightlife of Paceville, yet still fairly quiet. Close to restaurants and bars, the bus stop just a few minutes walk away, and a supermarket across the street. Also good wifi.
On the downside... I found it very difficult to actually get clear directions to find the apartment.
The shower head holder/bracket was broken, and had to be held by hand. When I messaged about it, I was told he could contact the plumber about it, but felt it could still be used easily (then I heard nothing else).
Also, he doesn't provide any sort of hand soap in the bathroom, or dish washing liquid, or rubbish bins/bags. I asked where to put the rubbish, but did not receive a response.
I am pleased you liked the flat and the locate. I am a bit surprised you had problems to find the address since a clear map and meticulous information is provided. In so many years no one told me anything on this matter, especially considering, as yourself wrote, the location is very central. Regarding the shower, as soon as I was informed I called the plumber, but as probably it is in your country, a plumber is someone not easy at all to get....unless it is not very urgent, like a leaking, it takes a few days to have an appointment - luckily a shower head holder/bracket broken is a minimal problem and not sure and urgency...after a few days you left everything was mended! ...it seemed to me to have replayed at your messages immediately, not even after 5 minutes..as always do! if for any chance the message did not go trough you should have called me at the phone o written again.
We had a lovely stay at the apartment. David came to meet us and even helped us with the suitcases. The stairs wasn't so bad after all.
Besides from the power going down in the whole block, st julians is a really nice place to stay. And we really enjoyed all the fireworks.
We could easily park the car in front of the app.
Joe, thanks for everything and we will be back for sure! Greetz Sandy
