About the property

Apartment in Floriana, Nr. Valletta, Malta, Malta-Gozo - Safe and central yet peacful location just 7 min walk away from the capital city Valletta

Experience the Maltese way of life in this lovely corner, cosy, ground floor Maisonette which is just a few minutes walk away from the historic capital city Valletta and the main bus terminus. This is a typical Maltese dwelling and is furnished as such. It is spacious and very well kept. It has a private entrance , large air conditioned sitting room and a separate well equipped kitchen/dining room. Two air conditioned Bedrooms, a bathroom, a shower/toilet and a small yard. Sleeps 10- Main bedroom with double bed, another bedroom with 4 single beds and 2 comfortable sofa beds in the living room.

Whilst it is situated in a typical quite and safe Maltese neighbourhood it is at the same time in a unique location, right upon the fortifications built by the knights of St. John overlooking Malta's Grand Harbour. Enjoy pleasant strolls in the quite nearby public garden whilst enjoying breath taking views of Grand Harbour or else walk for a few minutes more to end up in Valletta- The European Capital City for Culture 2018 which is also a World Heritage Site. It is equally easy to get the ferry to cross the Grand Harbour to reach the 3 cities which are also a must when one is visiting Malta. A children's playground can also be reached within a few minutes. Combine the above to the fact the main bus terminal is just a few minutes away and that all buses pass from Floriana and one can easily come to the conclusion that strategically Floriana is one of the best places to stay at when visiting Malta. Floriana itself hosts numerous events throughout the year such as the Carnival Parade, the Isle of MTV concert, Firework Festivals and more.

The apartment is at ground floor level. The entire apartment and yard are accessible to the guest

About Anna Mockridge

My name is Anna, married and have 3 children. I work as a Learning Support Assistant. I love travelling and meeting people.

Anna Mockridge purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Anna Mockridge chose Floriana

The apartment is situated in a very ideal location for bringing up a family, quite and safe neighbourhood, close to all amenities with access to public garden and spaces.

It used to be our home but then became too small when as the family got bigger. We still take care of it as it were still our home and it does give a homely feeling to those who stay.

What makes this apartment unique

The property is at ground floor level whilst the vast majority of dwellings in Floriana and Valletta are apartments with stairs and no lifts. Enjoys private entrance. Pay per use Aircondition is also available. This corner property is cosy and enjoys natural light.

Good space, facilities and location.

  • 5 of 5

The property is spacious and generally well equipped. Kitchen/diner was home from home and we enjoyed being in this room.

bedrooms again were large and of course plenty of space for just the two of us! A shower and a bathroom, as well as laundry facilities.

Only ten yards from the door we could overlook the Grand harbour and ten minutes walking took us to the center of Valetta. Buses were available locally in Floriana.

Hosts were very friendly and helpful, for instance arranging our airport transfer and allowing us to stay late till our pickup was due.

We did not go to Malta to watch TV, but it would have been nice to catch up now and again with some regular channels, beyond that available on the present Tv.

Thanks to Patrick and Anna for the stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you Dennis for your review. We did get similar comments about the limited channels or rather the lack of English channels available and we are looking into the issue. We hope to sort it out by January.

Highly recommended apartment

  • 5 of 5

Had a very enjoyable time staying at Anna and Patrick's apartment in Floriani, Malta, with my wife and son.

The apartment was as advertised, spacious, with good facilities and was spotlessly clean and Anna and Patrick were very helpful and considerate.

Just outside the apartment there are great views to the Grand Harbour area and lovely gardens to sit in the sun.

There is a good selection of restaurants down by the waterfront, about a 10 min walk and the centre of

Valetta is only about 15 mins stroll with plenty to see and do and an excellent bus service to all over the island.

Would highly recommend this apartment.

Good value, central property.

  • 5 of 5

The owners were friendly & efficient, communication was prompt.

We chose to be met at the airport and even though our plane was delayed it went smoothly. Patrick met us and on the journey in told us about Malta (it was our first visit). When we arrived at the flat he gave us more information and went out of his way to be helpful, it was over the New Year and he knew about opening times, buses etc..

The apartment is spacious, well equipped and clean. It is in an excellent position. It is a short walk from the Waterfront, City gate, ferry & bus station. (We found the bus service easy to manage & cheap).

You can buy most things you need for self catering at the little local shops round the corner; bakers, butchers, greengrocers & general stores.

Home from Home in a Great Location !

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous traditional Maltese ground floor apartment with everything you need. Patrick met us at the airport & gave us a quick tour & general info guide on the way, & Anna was waiting on arrival. The photos really don't do this large apartment justice, and there is so much space. The location is perfect, & you can be right in the centre of Valletta in less than 10 minutes by simply walking through the bus terminal. The Waterfront is fabulous with Shops & Restaurants & less than 5 minutes walk away. On our second day we woke up to find 3 large cruise liners on the other side of the wall right outside the apartment, where you can sit in the communal garden area to relax at any time. Very clean apartment run by a lovely friendly couple, excellent value for money and would definitely return.

Great base for Malta

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment for a week in February. We stayed as a couple, but there's plenty of room for 4, with 2 good bedrooms and bathrooms. It's a clean, comfortable flat and in a very good location from which to explore Malta. 10 minutes pleasant walk gets you into Valletta proper, and a little less than that to the central bus station, from where you can pick up buses to all island locations. You can also reach the nearer bus stops within 5 minutes walk. I wouldn't recommend hiring a car, as the driving seems chaotic to the visitor, and the bus service is pretty good, fun and very cheap.

Floriana itself is a quiet, mainly residential area, and has a selection of quirky local shops, where they manage to cram everything you can want into a very small space, at reasonable prices. Right outside the flat you can look down onto the whole Valletta dock area - always something to see. We even got a little February sunshine to sit on a bench, have a drink and watch things!

The owners are extremely helpful and friendly, and the flat is stocked with a comprehensive range of tourist information about Malta and Gozo. We even got picked up at the airport and driven to the flat. Communication prior to the holiday was good.

We thoroughly recommend this property.

Das Mobiliar ist schon älter, aber zweckmäßig. Die Lage sehr gut, wenige Minuten zur Altstadt und zum zentralen Busbahnhof.
