Vilhena apartment Palazzo San Pawl

Apartment - Entire home/apt · St Paul Street, Valletta, Malta, Malta VLT 1211, Malta

The Space

Palazzo San Pawl is a unique 17th C building originally built by the Knights of Malta. It has been very carefully and lovingly restored to its original splendor and old world charm in keeping with and enhancing all its original features.

The ground and first floor of the building have been stylishly converted into 4 fully independent apartment-suites which have been named after four Grandmasters of the Knights of Malta. The Hompesch & del Monte Suites overlook the central courtyard whereas the Pinto & Vilhena Suites have windows onto the street. All the Suites have access to the roof terrace by means of a lift which is accessed in the courtyard. The roof terrace commands spectacular panoramic views of the Grand Harbour. The property is centrally located within the bastion walls of Valletta, barely a 100m from the Co-Cathedral of St. John's housing the biggest masterpiece by Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, which is the epicentre of our Unesco World Heritage City.

Living in Valletta is synonymous to living in an open air museum, perfect for culture seekers who would truly like to discover this small but magnificent cosmopolitan peninsular city steeped in history where everything is within walking distance.

  • Schoenes Appartement, fuer zwei Personen ideal. Komfortable, recht luxuriöse Einrichtung, Dekoration. Gepflegte Atmosphäre, ideale Lage. Kleines Manko: altbaudedingt und da wir die EG Wohnung hatten etwas dunkel und auch direkt auf Strassenniveau. Aber uns hat es sehr gut gefallen und man hat die Terrasse, die bequem mit dem Aufzug zu erreichen ist, dort oben ist Ruhe, tollste Aussicht und Sonnenschein. Unkomplizierte Gastgeber, nett und offen. Ganz toll zum Willkommen eine Flasche Wein, Wasser, Brot etc. vorzufinden. Da muss man nicht gleich losrennen. Wir werden gern zurückkommen!

  • Norman is a great host! Apartment clean and welcoming with fruit and wine. Location is very convenient close to transportation and in the heart of Valletta and all the action. Would stay there again without hesitation.

    Response from Norman:

    Thank you Margaret! and you would be welcome to stay whenever you decide to come back!

  • Norman's apartment was spacious and contained everything we needed. The location in Valetta is perfectly located to explore Malta. The wine and fruit were unexpected and very much appreciated.

  • Norman and his partner were welcoming and very hospitable. The historic flat was beautifully restored with great attention to every detail. However, the flat is on a busy street and the traffic noise is a problem because there is no insulation between the street and the flat. Also, lots of construction. Norman has several other flats inside the main building and those may be quieter. Nevertheless, staying in a 400 year old restored building was a wonderful experience.

  • Very pleasant property and ideally situated in Valetta.

    Within a few minutes walk of the main sites and restaurants.

    Would recommend.

  • Norman and Michael are organized, efficient, and extremely responsive to guests. We liked that all the "house rules" were laid out and we knew what to expect. They also had some basic food items (tea, milk, bread, jam, beer, and wine) already in the apartment for our use which was a wonderful surprise. The stairs are quite steep from the loft (with the double bed) down to the living room and on down to the kitchen/bathroom so anybody with balance issues or leg issues should look elsewhere. The water in the shower is hot right away and the bathroom is modern. The apartment is just beautiful as is the rooftop terrace where we took our bottle of wine and enjoyed the view. We had one very minor issue with the toilet and I called Norman on his mobile while we were on our way to Mdina and he had it fixed by the time we returned. Just a wonderful visit!
