    Business trip

    Nicely renovated boutique hotel with very friendly owners. Rooms stylishly decorated with local antiques. Hotel is in the heart of the old city and was created by combining three houses without loosing the original character. Owners were very welcoming and helpful during my stay. The breakfast in the morning is full of fresh produce and freshly baked cakes and pastries.

    Amazing hotel full of charm

    Some words to describe this hotel: Romantic Exceptional Friendly Antiques Bespoke Boutique Welcoming 5 star Charming Classical Modern Central Stunning breakfast I stay in about 10 hotels per year and this place is a firm favourite. If going to Valletta- stay here, you will not be disappointed. Charles and Dorothy are professional hoteliers. They are the friendliest, most sincere owners and they will be winning awards very soon.

    Excellent boutique hotel

    Great little boutique hotel in a restored 400 year old building. Excellent location: in the middle of everything and near the ferries.

    Family atmosphere

    Charles and Dorothy treated us like family. Huge breakfast with quiche, sausage and baked goods all made by Charles. Half a block off Merchant street in old part of Valletta so walking distance from cathedral and many museums. Thanks very much.

    We had a fabulous time in Valletta and being in the centre was a big plus. The room we stayed in was brilliant. Very old building with many intersting designs - certainly nothing like the big chain hotels. And the view from the terrace at the top cant be beaten. The owners were brilliant, friendly and always willing to help. I cant recommend this guest house more - it was perfevt for us.

    Beautiful building, but needs improvements

    This hotel could be amazing.  There are a few major issues.  The location is great.  The rooms are beautiful.  The bedding and towels are 5 star.  The problems...breakfast was terrible.  Very little hot water.  And why no bathroom doors?!  We stayed in two different rooms (more on that later), and neither had a bathroom door.  We are a loving couple, but a couple who like some level of privacy.   We stayed in the top floor room, which is three levels.  The first floor is the toilet, and sinks.  Spiral staircase up to an outdoor patio (huge and beautiful, even with no view).  Another round of spiral staircase to the bedroom.  The shower is in the bedroom.  Up the spiral staircase again to the huge top floor patio, with a stupendous view of the water.  Amazing.  The shower featured two rain-shower heads.  Which would have been wonderful, but there isn't enough hot water for one person to take a shower, let alone two.  There are no nightlights, so if you have to use the bathroom in the middle of the night, you risk life and limb or you have to turn on the lights.  On our second night the mosquitoes came.  We have traveled around the world, and mosquitoes can be an issue in many places.  But we must have killed about 30.  No sleep what so ever.  We checked the windows and the doors and couldn't figure out where they were coming from.  Finally, at about 6am we found a window, hidden behind a plant on the stairway.  No window pane.  Just an open window.  We got no sleep and request
