Guestbook comments from the manager

We would like to thank Ruth & Neville, as we, a group of 8 friends, have had a great stay in the apartment in Sliema, ideally located just 2 minutes away from the sea. The apartment is clean and just like the pictures. We were welcomed by a smart Lad, Salvatore. He showed us the apartment and gave us all information we needed on the area and Malta. The rest of the stay passed smoothly and had a pleasant holiday. Ruth and Neville of GetawaysMalta, are very reactive so the communication was very easy. The walk to San Julian was a bit longer than expected (around 20-30 minutes) but it is a walk by the sea which was enjoyable and passed by quickly. Just down the road there is a small mini market which was great for us. A little more distant there is a big Supermarket. Sliema ferries and the bus stop are very close too!

The neighbour hood is quiet. Apartment had all we could need.

A very good accommodation indeed and the price was very good too.

Sliema is a coastal town situated on the northeast of Malta, adjacent to St. Julians. Once the home of Malta's aristocracy; it has now become a major commercial area, very popular for shopping, bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels.

Sliema acquired its name from a chapel dedicated to The Our Lady of The Sea (or Stella Maris) built in 1855, which served as a reference point to the fishermen who inhabited the area. The name is linked to the opening words of the Hail Mary prayer, which in Maltese are "Sliem Għalik Marija". Sliem is the Maltese word meaning peace or serenity. Sliema is quite a large residential town with a population of around 15,000 locals; housing also a significant number of expatriates that reside there temporarily.

Sliema was once a quiet fishing village, a minor summer resort that hosted the wealthier Valletta residents. The 19th century, however, saw the development of Sliema; it quickly grew into a residential area, adjoining to neighbouring St. Julians. Elegant villas and town houses, as well as many Victorian buildings were built by the British along the promenade overlooking the rocky coastline.

Soon, the people of Sliema understood the tourism potential of the area, and so they began a building boom that changed the whole landscape. Sliema became the first tourist resort in Malta, and its importance still remains. Nowadays, only a few Victorian and art nouveau houses remain, the rest have been replaced by modern apartment blocks, establishments and hotels.

From one side, the Sliema promontory offers spectacular views across to Valletta, and from the other side, there are breathtaking open sea views. The promenade that stretches for a couple of kilometres is ideal for long walks or runs, while the various benches provide a place for the locals to relax and socialize during warm summer evenings. Sliema coastline also boasts the Independence Garden completed with a children’s playground, as well as two fortifications: a De Redin tower built in the 17th century to protect the islands against sea attacks; and another tower that was built by the British in a neo-gothic style in the 1880s.

Sliema: Things to see and do

Shopping: There a number of shopping opportunities in Sliema

Dine & Wine: Sliema is full of bars and restaurants, offering a wide variety of cuisines and atmospheres.

Take a walk at the promenade: To the right, the promenade leads you all the way to Gzira, Ta’ Xbiex and Msida marina, while to the left, there’s a walkway towards St. Julians, Paceville and St. George’s Bay.
