Norman and his partner are very nice and welcoming, they run their place quite professionally. We appreciated our stay in this beautiful and original apartment, furnished with great taste. The roof terrace is amazing, with a beautiful view at the harbor. The location is practical, near the bus terminal, and inside the old city. The place was very clean, with all the details we appreciate when we travel : a tasty welcome pack, several towels, electric adapter, wifi without an awfully long password, bathrobes etc. We really recommend the place to discover Valletta and Malta !
We stayed eight nights at palazzo san pawl and we enjoyed the place
The location is perfect, close the bus terminal when you want to go anywhere out of valletta. It is also a few minutes on foot from st john's cathedral and the main city's attractions.
Then the palazzo itself is an old house which has all the beauty of things past and at the same time has been carefully and tastefully restaured by our hosts with all the modern amenities.
Norman and michael who run the place have proved very nice and helpful any time we ask them for something, from connecting to the internet to where to go to eat or a few comments on the island life. We also very much appreciated to be upgraded to a more luxury room (without extra charge) after some one cancelled a reservation on the last minute.
I definitely recommend this address to whoever would like to visit valletta and tue rest of malta "with style". Excellent value.
Response from Norman:
Thank you for your great review! We really appreciate it!
A lovely ground-floor flat right in Valletta's historical center, with access to a roof patio with great views of the harbour. Very nice indeed!
The reservation was canceled 16 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
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!
My husband and I enjoyed Norman's place and the neighborhood. His apartment was kept extremely clean, cozy and and just like on the pictures! The location is very convenient. I hightly recomended this place!
Response from Norman:
Thank you Irina- You are welcome to return and escape the cold Russian winter - It will always be warmer in Malta : )
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!
Perfect spot in the heart of beautiful valetta, the flat was full of character, very clean and comfortably furnished. Kind hosts with generous additions such as a welcome fridge full of supplies, bathrobes and hair drier! The terrace is the highlight, an amazing view of the grand harbour to enjoy at our leisure!
Response from Norman:
Thank you for your great review :)
My husband and I spent four nights in the Lascaris Suite (basement) at Palazzo San Pawl.
Location is great, just a block over from the main area, a 5 minute walk from the bus station, and a 2 minute walk from a taxi stand.
The apartment is very very spacious! As well as the bedroom, there is a full living room and another couch beside the kitchen area. Fully stocked kitchen with a stove, microwave and mini fridge. It has been restored beautifully and you can tell the owners put a lot of care into maintaining it. They even left us a bottle of wine, a loaf of good bread and a big bowl of fruit when we arrived. Very nice! There is an elevator that opens up right into the suite, which also goes up to the third floor where you take one flight of stairs up to the gorgeous and huge rooftop patio.
As it is a basement suite, it can get sort of hot and humid. There are fans in every room, but it would be super if there was an air conditioner as well (if possible).
We didn't see Norman that often, but when we did he was very nice and professional. We would definitely stay at Palazzo San Pawl again.
Norman and Micheal were great hosts, both really nice and helpful.
Palazzo San Pawl is a fantastic place. Located right in the middle of Valetta's old town and is in easy walking distance to a number of great restaurants / bars, and the island's main bus station.
We stayed in the Lascaris Suite which is in the cellar and although may sound slightly unappealing is anything but. The suite is very large, very well renovated and well lit.
Palazzo San Pawl also has a great rooftop terrace with great views of the harbour and is an ideal spot to have a couple of drinks while the sun goes down.
We will definitely stay with Norman and Michael again if / when we go back to Malta.
Norman is a very charming and responsible person. I know that he takes care and pride of his properties and they would certainly be very tastefully done up. I would say anyone looking for refined and good taste, should consider a few days in his Valletta property
Norman is a great Valletta man, reliable and honest, and he owns one of the most beautiful houses in the city! :)
Actually I stayed in one of Norman's beautiful apartments in February 2012 for a week with my family, and he and his partner were a delight; we have been friends ever since. The apartment by the way, one of those proposed here on Airbnb, is amazing, the location unbeatable, the building a pure beauty. Hope to see you again soon Norman, maybe in Vienna :-)
I have known Norman for the past sixteen years.
Norman is a true gentleman; clever, honest, reliable with the bonus of a great sense of humor.
