A rocky beach is available within walking distance. The nearest sandy beach would be St Julians and that's 2 km away. The nearest bus stop is 2 min. walk. One of the advantages of a small island is that very little time is spent travelling.
How to get there
Sliema is 9 km away from the airport. The X2 bus will bring you straight Sliema from the airport and the bus stop is just 2 min. away. Some info about buses that pass through Sliema - The 202 and 203 will take you to Mdina and Rabat. The 222 runs all the way to the ferry port for Gozo.
Sliema and especially the ferries area is packed with restaurants for all budgets, shops and cafes. In the vicinity there are small shops for everyday needs as well as 2 large supermarkets within walking distance. And luckily, two blocks away you can find a traditional local baker from where you can buy freshly baked Maltese bread or ftira.
Interaction with Guests
My name is Rosella and I live next door to the property with my 9 year old son Julian. I worked as an air stewardess with our national carrier Air Malta and I love working with tourists. I would be happy to help you in any way I can and I hope we can make your holiday in Malta as pleasant as possible.
This is exactly where you want to be if you are a tourist. Sliema is the main touristic area on the island. Just two minutes walk down the street and you can find shops and international brands, cafes and restaurants, the sea and a rocky beach, buses including Hop hop off, and much more ☺
Buses and the ferry that crosses the bay to Valletta pass every few minutes at the Ferries which is just down the street literally 2 minutes walk.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is located in a residential area therefore it is not possible to hold parties and one must avoid being particularly loud and disturbing the neighbours.
Water & Electricity is INCLUDED in the price. Please make yourselves comfortable and use all that you need but do switch off appliances and lights when not in use especially when you go out. Thank you☺
Absolutely great apartment (very large, clean, and surprisingly bright for being at basement level) in a key location (close to sea, public transport and restaurants/bars), and Rosella is a great hostess who went out of her way to help us during our stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone travelling to Malta, you won't be disappointed!
Perfectly located flat as many buses, the ferry boat departure, restaurants, bars all within minutes. The flat is very spacious too and was perfectly clean. There were toiletries, bath and beach towels provided, which is convenient if you only have hand luggage. Rosella always answered super quickly (most often within minutes!) to emails I sent her before the stay. She is living next door to the flat so it is easy during your stay too. Would highly recommend
We had a great time staying in Rosella's flat in Sliema. The area was quite comfortable to get around -- the bus stop and ferry are located just down the street, and you can find many cafes/bars/restaurants within short walking distance. It's a lovely part of Sliema. The flat itself was pleasant to stay in and includes everything one should need, and Rosella was even courteous enough to provide us with beach towels, Wi-Fi, wine and Maltese bread (!) upon our arrival. Rosella, thank you for being such a kind host and making our visit in Malta so amazing!
Rosella's flat was brilliant, huge, lots of charachter. The flat has everything, it was just my boyfriend and I staying, but it would be great for a family or a group of friends. Rosella was super friendly and helpful. The location is perfect, walking distance to all the restaurants and bars in selima an st julian and great spots on the seafront for swimming. The ferry to Valletta and bus stop is just down the road to get you anywhere on the island. Definitely recommend staying here!
It is really charming huge flat and it is in perfect location to travel all around Malta. Rossella is very helpful host, she organized pickup from airport and after meeting us with Maltese style she offered where to go for sightseeing, how to travel, where to eat. I would highly recomend to all travelers.
This property is in a perfect location in Sliema; only a few minutes walk to the Valetta ferry and to bus stops that go in all directions around the island. The apartment is very spacious and could easily accommodate a group. However, it is below ground level so there is little natural light, resulting in a damp feel (although I imagine it might feel different during the hot months of the year). Rosella was a very responsive host prior to our arrival and made things easy for us by arranging a taxi to collect us from the airport. Upon arrival there was a gift of wine and Maltese bread waiting for us which was lovely. Rosella lives next door so was readily available when we had questions about the apartment.
L'appartamento è sotto terra e quindi è umido, ha poca luce naturale e i rumori provenienti dalla strada sono fastidiosi. Di sicuro non è la soluzione migliore in inverno, quando fuori piove e fa relativamente freddo. Se avete le gambe lunghe, i letti possono essere troppo corti. Adatto solo per brevi permanenze.
