Very good 8.0
Adequate, clean, relatively comfortable.
It was clean and relatively comfortable. The 24 hour checkin at Blubay (in Ponsonby St) is about 500 metres from the apartment I had, but my accomm. appeared newer than the Blubay building. The pool is at Blubay so you have a walk to use that with accompanying annoyance of moving gear etc. It is not that great anyway. And there is a sign which says "no swimwear only" during that walk (I presume the Maltese are a little less liberal than Aussies on that issue, esp. re ladies). Further annoying was front desk support, the phone contact with reception appeared not to work to solve little issues. I just asked the poor old cleaning staff on hand, god bless them. The wifi worked and the daily cleaning was good (they do not supply washing up gear or a teatowel, unless you ask the cleaning staff, and even then it seemed to be a non-management approved favour). Ponsonby bus stop was a 7 min walk, again from the Moroni apartment block, not Blubay from which it is closer. A decent (non-mini) supermarket is about 20 mins walk.

Very good 8.0
The original apartment we had was not very satisfactory or what was expected. But after we made this clear to management, we were able to change for a much better apartment. Very pleased with the service received overall. Although would have helped to know services such as Sauna was chargeable before hand. Otherwise, overall we had a pleasant stay.

One of our best accomodations ever
Our stay was excellent. The property exceeded our expectations. Great value for money and the location of the property was great. 2 min from the bus station and close to major landmarks. All staff was very helpful and kind and the place was clean and very well equiped with everything you need. I would totally recomand staying at any of their properties as they have multiple hotels and apartments. Really nothing to complain about.

Great Stay for the price
The apartments are actually spread around near the main building and you are taken to your building once you have checked in. We were staying in a lovely big apartment wiht balcony which was excellent value for the price we paid. There was no pool or restaurant in our building so I feel the images are a bit misleading. The bathroom and kitchen were fitted to a high standard. There is no washing machine in the apartment but there is a wonderful laundry service on Sir Ponsonby Street where you can drop your stuff off in the morning and they will wash it and dry it for you the same day for €8 a load. There are lots of little mini supermarkets around, some wont take cards so be aware. Wifi reception was excellent and really appreciated. The reception staff were extremely helpful and very hard working. thank you

Good 6.0
't expect much, nothing great except the location.
I don't generally write reviews but thought it was worth my time and effort to do so this time. Let me start with the positives first: 1) Great location - but don't expect views or rooms as shown in the pictures on their site. Walking distance to bus stops, cruise harbour, restaurants and shops. 2) Apartment size was good and spacious 3) Some of the staff - especially the house keeping very friendly. Now the negatives: 1) The apartment was not clean and had several issues, like ACs not working in 2 of the 3 bedroom units. Finally Alex, the manager changed our apartment and the fortunately this all all ACs were working. 2) The kitchen lacked basics - for an apartment of 6, we had only 3 plates, no glasses for drinking water. The cooker was faulty and everytime we started the oven, the lights would go off the circuit breaker tripped. 3) All rooms have singled beds and the staff join 2 beds to create a double bed. No proper duvets provided despite the cold weather and what they term is blankets are actually polyester throws we use in UK. Mattresses are very bad and all of the us severe back ache every morning when we woke up. 4) The phone in the apartment was not working and despite several complaints, it was not fixed. 5) We had electricity issues in the complex when there were no lights in the apartments. No emergency lights provided. 6) House Keeping staff not provided with gloves by the hotel management. Hence they don't clean the basin and toilets well.

The wiew makes all the money
Wiew from the balcony is wonderful. Big living room with a small kitchen where the water has no pressure. Main bedroom cold because of the air conditioning not working. Bathroom from the main bedroom was from the north pole. Both bathrooms need repairs. Beds was OK to sleep on. Second bedroom if you open the window all the smell from the Turkish restaurant from the bottom of the building is coming in.
