Born and raised in Malta - architect
As others have said, Mark is a warm, charismatic, and generous host. We were greeted by him on arrival from the airport, despite the very late hour, and he was attentive to our needs and friendly throughout our stay. Little touches such as the greeting bottle of wine and books on Malta were thoughtful and really personalized the experience. The apartment is light and spacious, in an excellent location for exploring wonderful Valletta, and perfectly suited our needs.
A really nice place to stay. Space and perfect view. there a roof top terrasse
Perfectly located, this flat is a good idea for a trip to La Valette
Mark's apartment is a beautiful space, clean, elegantly furnished, spacious for two people, and easy to find. The kitchen equipment is basic but contains all you need for simple meals, although there are also many places to eat nearby (Margo's pizza was very tasty, don't be put off by the ridiculous menu!). The apartment is conveniently located, and is on the 5th floor, no problem for us at all, and this results in a great view! Mark even, very kindly, left us a delicious bottle of local wine and some store cupboard supplies.
Mark is a kind and friendly host, great with communication and always helping us get the best out of our trip when we needed advice, but also we had plenty of privacy. He was very quick to help us with a few little problems (the front door needs a jiggle to open it, that kind of thing). I would recommend Mark and his apartment highly, and Valetta is simply lovely. Thanks!
Super séjour! Malte et Gozo valent le détour, l'appartement de Mark est en plein centre de La Valette, et à 5 mn du terminal des bus, d'où il est très facile de se déplacer dans l'île...Nombreux restaurants autour de l'appartement. Celui ci est très clair, très propre, fonctionnel, avec un petit balcon...Mark fut efficace et discret (il habite sur le même palier). Ravis de cette location, ravis de nos vacances Maltaises, plein de choses encore à découvrir...On reviendra!!
The apartment is really lovely and Mark is a fantastic host. If you're sensitive about noise then it can be a bit noisy at times (the bar below in the afternoon/evening and market setting up in the small hours). Although we were there during carnival so perhaps the bar is usually quieter..?
Mark was a wonderful host, helpful and obliging. He left us a welcoming bottle of wine and was always available. The rooms were large, well-equipped, and just right. Being in the center of Valetta, in an old building and a real home instead of a hotel, was a real treat.
Mark's apartment it's very well located. In a few minutes walking you could visit some of Valletta's main attractions. Mark is a nice host, he given us some helpful information at check-in (restaurants, supermarkets, etc...)...We just had some problems to find places (special supermarkets) opened after 5pm..it could be a problem if you want to cook at home!! About the apartment commodities, the kitchen could be more well equipped, and the ad more precise (there's no washing machine or jacuzzi as mentioned). In general we had a really nice time in Malta..despite the weather.
Das Apartment ist super gelegen in einem wunderbaren alten Haus an einer Hauptstrasse mitten in der Altstadt von Valletta, gleich hinter dem Grossmeisterpalast. Das Apartment ist hell und praktisch eingerichtet und vom Balkon (sowie vom typischen Maltesischen Erker) aus sieht man bis zum Meer. Einziger Nachteil ist die schlechte Isolation, was im Winter (wir waren im Januar 2014 da) auch mit den beiden vorhandenen Elektroöfen recht kühl sein kann. Immerhin: Die Öfen funktionieren und aus dem Hahnen fliesst auch heisses Wasser. Mark, der Gastgeber, lebt gleich gegenüber. Er ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit und jederzeit erreichbar. Das Apartment ist somit insgesamt bestens zu empfehlen!
Mark is a gracious, accommodating host. His apartment was equipped and ready for us when we arrived. We loved staying in the center of Valletta. Easy access to everything we wanted to do in Malta. The apartment is clean, in a cool building, beautiful views from the balconies and rooftop. The bus and taxi terminus is less than five minutes walk. Markets, stores and restaurants are all within steps from the apartment.
What a great central and stylish apartment. My boyfriend and I loved the location and would definitely recommend Mark´s place to anyone wanting to visit Valletta and Malta.
There are lots of great restaurants and cafes along the street and we loved walking by the local market looking at the items, every morning.
The only minus is if you´re a light sleeper. the very same market might wake you up earlier than "holiday wake up times."
