Other things to note: • An additional eco tax of €0.50 pp/pn is due in cash during check in for guests who are 18 years or over. All guests may be required to present valid documentation such as passport or ID. • Check In is after 4:00pm and Check out is till 11:00am. ◦ Please confirm your arrival time a few days before check-in so I can arrange for key exchange. Always keep me updated if there are any changes. • Basic comforts such as towels, soap, shampoo, iron, and a hairdryer are provided. • The apartment is located on the 1st floor, there is no lift. • Access to the en suite bathroom is through the bedroom. (see the floor plan) • The apartment measures 50 meters squared. The space is ideal for 2 persons but can accommodate up to 4 adults who are comfortable with the sleeping arrangements. • Like most old Maltese houses, the apartment is built to keep relatively cool in the hot summer period. Although there is no air conditioning I provide fans during the warmer months or on request. • Due to our warm climate, Maltese homes do not have central heating. Please keep in mind that during the winter period indoor temperatures might not be as warm as you are used to back home. I advice my guests to get warm indoor clothing during colder months (November - April). I provide extra blankets and an electric heater that you can use as needed. • Camera surveillance is in operation in the common areas of the apartment building. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact me! Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: HPI/6802More

About the neighbourhood
The apartment is located in a typical narrow winding side street in the historic centre of Rabat, one of the top tourist attractions in Malta. Just 150 meters from the Rabat main square! The neighbourhood is full of Maltese character with its typical village feel, churches and limestone houses with wooden balconies. Grocery stores, bakeries, fruit and vegetable shops, pharmacies, restaurants and cafes are conveniently just a few meters away. The central location of Rabat makes it a perfect base to explore Malta.
Getting around
Due to its central location, Rabat is one of the best connected villages on the island. The apartment is located just a short 8 minute walk from the Rabat bus interchange. From the bus interchange you will be able to reach many places of interest by public transport. There is also the tourist Hop On and Hop Off Bus that tours round the island and a Train tour that takes you round Rabat and its surroundings. If you are exploring the island by car, parking on the streets nearby is free of charge.
