Chic retro house in the capital

House - Private room · Triq Sant' Orsla, Valletta, Malta

The Space

The house was designed by Forward Architects and combines an old building with modern day comforts and a retro feel. The common areas are all joined into one large space and windows on all four sides give a lot of natural light during the day.

The guest bedroom is connected to the guest bathroom through a passage which gives guests privacy. In addition, the master bedroom, occupied by the hosts, is cut off from the guest's bedroom.

The area is safe and very tranquil at night. The house is under 5 mins walk to the bus terminus, shops, restaurants, cafes and all the places of interest Valletta has to offer. During the summer, the bridge bar (just 50m away) has live jazz bands playing every Friday. One of the oldest theatres in Europe (Manoel Theatre) is 5 minutes away and hosts a series of plays and music concerts throughout the (website hidden) John's cathedral is round the corner and, while austere from the outside, is a beautiful and lavish site on the inside.

The main bus terminus that has connections to the rest of the island is in Valletta and therefore it makes it the perfect place to base yourself for your holiday.

If you need airport transfers, a bottle of champagne on ice, english lessons or any other arrangements, the host will be happy to help at an additional cost.

Getting around

Valletta is the location of the bus terminus so it is easy to reach all parts of the island. There is also a ferry to the three cities and a ferry to Sliema.

  • La casa è situata in una via tra le più pittoresche di Valletta; è comodissima per raggiungere qualsiasi posto della città e dell'isola.
    Nei dintorni ci sono tantissimi locali, il teatro e la stazione dei bus.
    Chic retro house è proprio il nome adeguato: la casa è affascinante, curatissima nei particolari e arredata con mobili di modernariato. La nostra camera e il bagno godevano di assolutà privacy. Martina è un'ospite molto discreta e gentile e il nostro soggiorno è stato molto piacevole.

  • We truly loved staying in this gorgeous house in Valetta.
    Martina and her husband are delightful hosts and their house is a treat for the eyes and the senses.
    The house is centrally located and gives you an opportunity to enter into a very sophisticated and aesthetically pleasing old house that has been beautifully restored to meet today's needs. From the warm and caring welcome to making sure all was well at all times we felt taken care of not as strangers but as friends.
    I highly recommend this beautiful place for your Valetta visit.

  • The room was nice and clean though a bit noisy. It was great to have an own bathroom. The house itself is newly restaurated and decorated and they did a realy good job. It is very well situated, specially if you are the first time in Malta for the busterminal is ten minutes walk from there. With the buses you can visit easily nearly every corner of Malta.
