The Lascaris suite is a great place to spend a quiet weekend, and get some amazing sleep. Norman was very helpful throughout, I'd highly recommend it for anyone.
Normans partner met us exactly at the planned arrival time..showed us through the property and suggested local sights...the apartment was much better than expected.extremely high standard..beautifully presented with high class fittings and very high standard of cleanliness...felt totally welcomed and was very impressed....the location is the best in Malta...2 minute walk to main square but also quiet...the apartment is a destination in itself...there are also other apartments available in the same building th
rough same owner to accomodate different needs and budgets..all represent very good value
Très bon accueil avec ttes les explications nécessaires pour passer un bon séjour. Décoration parfaite, très cocooning. Corbeille de fruits, petit déjeuner, serviettes, peignoirs font partie des attentions. Très bon séjour.
Just an amazing experience from start to finish and can't recommend this place highly enough! Lovely space, romantic (bring a partner!), great welcome, everything you could possibly want and right in the middle of Valletta 2 minutes from the bus station. The welcome pack of bread, fruit, wine, beer, orange juice, milk and water was wonderful - thank you very much. Bring an alarm clock as without windows watch out you can sleep forever :-) Lovely terrace and thank you for letting me check out late. See you again or I will send all my friends your way! Natalie x
My stay in Malta was fantastic and it had a lot to do with my accommodations, which were amazing and right in the heart of Valletta with easy access to the rest of the island. The place was clean and well maintained, the fridge was stocked with goodies (wine, beer, bread, milk, fruit, jams) which was a nice touch. I went over Christmas and Norman and his partner brought me some Christmas chocolates which was lovely! I would have loved to have gotten to know them better (were very friendly and nice to talk to) but I was always out doing things! I would stay there again if I went back to Malta and I highly recommend it to others! Thanks for making my stay even better!
I came into the door and I was stoked immediately! The whole building is awesome and it was beautifully decorated. I was shown around, I got the welcome package (bread, juice,beer etc.) and some tips what to do in Malta. All in all - the perfect hosts, the perfect accomodation, the perfect vacation - won´t be my last time there! 10 stars out of 5! Thanks again!
Norman was the perfect host! He even arranged a ride from and to the airport! He gave us a very informative run down of Malta and surprised us with a welcome package with various fruits, snacks, and wine! We loved every detail of his home. Complete with a beautiful rooftop view! It was very clean and comfortable. We had everything we needed. We look forward to visiting again soon!
Thanks so much for helping to make our Malta experience so memorable!
