Dobry, bezproblemowy, szybki kontakt z gospodarzem, mieszkanie zgodne z opisem, bardzo przestronne i jasne. Kuchnia w pełni wyposażona we wszystko co potrzeba a zatem nie ma problemu by przygotować sobie coś pysznego :) Pomimo braku klimatyzacji w mieszkaniu nie jest duszno ani gorąco, a w chwilach kryzysu może pomóc obecny w salonie wiatrak. Dobra lokalizacja, kilka minut do supermarketu Gala Center w którym można kupić prawie wszystko, od owoców po mięso jak i repelenty na komary :) W ciągu kilkunastu minut można dotrzeć na przystanek autobusowy z którego odjeżdża wiele autobusów w prawie każdy zakątek Malty. W drugą stronę dojdziemy do Sliemy gdzie znajdziemy mnóstwo restauracji, barów a na końcu centrum handlowe.
I had a friendly exchange with Jo beforehand and Eleni, the caretaker, was friendly and helpful.
The apartment is bigger than it looks on the pictures. It is well equipped and clean. The location worked perfectly for us as we like to walk and both Valletta as well as Sliema and St. Julians were easy to reach by foot. There is a lovely little cafe just down the road ("The Grassy Hopper") - perfect to start the day or grab a quick bite on your way out.
There are, however, two drawbacks with this place: 1. It has no air conditioning and 2. there is close to no water pressure in the shower. Both would have been quite useful given the climate and we missed it a lot although it was never over 25 degrees during our stay.
That said, given the low price I would probably still consider it again.
Everything was perfect !
The appartment is very nice, confortable, well-equiped, and so clean !... Moreover Eleni is so nice (the woman who lives above the apartment and who takes care of us during our stay) : she was very at our disposal and lent us some soap to enable us to make a washing machine. Thanks again to her !
We felt very welcome and Jo helpt us with all our questions about our stay. He also booked a cab for our depature. Eleni his helper was also very helpful. The flat got everything, even iron, wifi, seeling fan in every room and a washingmaschine. We got a startkit with bread, butter and water and that was a suprise. The location was perfect for daily excursions, beacause it was in between Sliema/St Juliens and Valetta, so it was perfect. Good buscommunications, just around the corner. We can strongly recommend this Airbnb to anyone who want´s to visit the city center of Malta.
The apartment was exactly as described!! Everything was clean and it was exactly what we were looking for. It was our first visit to Malta and we have truly fallen in love with the island.... so much, that we are organising a holiday to go back next year.
Eleni was very friendly and incredibly helpful, she provided us with information about the local grocery stores, buses, shop opening hours etc. Eleni was always available with any queries we had.
Communication with Jo has also been fantastic and all information we have needed to know has been provided.
The location of the apartment was very close to the bus station, which can take you anywhere on the island and it was also lovely walking to Sliema following the promenade.
There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, pubs and clubs all in walking distance from the apartment. The price is just right and we definitely consider staying here again when we return to Malta. :)
All the local people are incredibly nice, friendly, helpful and made us feel very welcome to be there.
We send our grateful thanks to Eleni and Jo for allowing us to stay at the apartment. :)
Jo arranged for Eleni to take care of us during our stay and it was so wonderful. Eleni has made everything comfortable and clean during our stay and she also offered a lot of suggestions and places for us to visit when we were in Malta. She made sure to carefully explain to us all the features of the place (which was fully furnished and equipped) and also about the different bus routes we could take. She also went out of her way to print our boarding passes for our return flight home because we had some problem with our original (website hidden) also helped us to book a taxi to the airport on our last day as it was an early flight. I would definitely recommend staying at this place and the apartment is also very spacious for 2 people! Will come back again if I have the opportunity. Thank you Eleni and Jo!
I had some good preliminary exchange with Jo prior to our coming to Malta and was kindly hosted on D-day by Eleni, the apartment caretaker. Since I speak Greek (a litlle) I had a good friendly exchange with Eleni who is of greek origin.
We stayed a full week at Jo's apartment. It is as shown on the pictures of the Web site and proved to be very comfortable due to its very large size and the availability of all necessary appliances and accessories to do your own cooking. The wifi also worked extremely well which is a real plus.
It is also conveniently located, just a few minutes walk to 2 or 3 bus stops to take you to Valetta in one direction or to Sliema and St Julian in the other direction (less then 15 minutes ride in both cases).
If you happen to also rent a car as we did you will very easily find places to park after 5:00 pm when returning from your excursion of the day since it is a business district and most employees will have left the area to go home.
The price we paid was very good and helped us keep our budget Under control. To be honest though with future guests one has to be aware that the apartment is very noisy due to the fact that it overlooks a busy street and that the window isolation is very minimal ... however the bedroom located on the back side of the building is very quiet which insures good nights of sleep.
All in all we enjoyed our stay at Jo's apartment and our visit to Malta !
