When I booked the room, I expected more than what I've got once we arrived in our room. The room was pretty small, no view as they describe on their website and the interior is kind of old. Qua location wise, it's indeed a great location to visit Mdina and Rabat. However, the price was a bit overcharge for a... More

This family-run guest house is as close to being in th Mdina as it gets. It is just outside that beautiful old walled city. And it is an easy walk to the sites of Rabat as well. Mauricio, Alex and Sam make you feel very much at home. Very warm people and Mauricio is funny. The rooms are surprisingly quiet... More

Location is not as good as other places I have stayed in Malta but there are buses close by to go elsewhere. I was on my own and I didn't feel very comfortable walking around as it is not a busy place. When I arrived I was given a room that was on its own in the basement I thought... More

Stopped by for a few drinks while waiting on our taxi to arrive. Staff were friendly. Just a short walk from main gate to The Old City . Looked clean and well run. Toilets were spotless. And they had a very good number of customers at the time we were there.

Stopped in for a late lunch with my wife after a touring the City of Mdina. Friendly staff, had their speciality pizza and it was amazing. The Mdina Chardonnay went over big with my wife while I enjoyed a draft beer which was very nice. A good, relaxing time spent well here and the prices were modest.
