Big place with lots of floors! Awesome location close to the sights of Valletta. Accurate listing with good communication. Small kitchen, not a lot of light, not very comfortable common areas for hanging out.

We had a wonderful stay. The two main bedrooms are particularly beautiful and spacious! All the other areas are really functional and nice too. It was also really close to some great local restaurants! Thanks for hosting us!

This house is in a great location in Malta. You can easily explore everything as in a walking distance there is the central bus station to all dimensions. This house is ideally located downtown Valletta and is the perfect choice for families and groups as every bedroom has private bathroom and a key that locks the door. The kitchen is perfect to prepare a meal and the dinning area very comfortable for breakfast with all the group. There was some things that could be better in the future and we have privately noticed these to the owners, hoping they will take them under consideration. Perfect tip for you: totally recommend to use the taxi cub of Jeffrey they propose. He is so kind and helpful, a new Mercedes cub mini bus for 7 really clean and specious for all the group. WE WOULD TOTALLY STAY THERE AGAIN.

Beautifully renovated house in the centre of Valletta. Excellent beds. Plenty of badrooms. Good communication with owners. As mentioned before, common rooms are not very comfortable and somewhat small. Nonetheless, we recommend this place!

This apartment was better than we could have imagined. It is a spacious building that comfortably fit 7 family members (with room for several more if we needed) with a quick walk to everything in Valletta. The beds were very comfortable and the WiFi was very strong, which was very helpful as we liked to come home and plan our vacation. Everything about this place was amazing and we will certainly stay here again next time we are in Malta!

We had a lovely stay at Carafa. The house is beautiful and great for a large group (there were 8 of us). The house is very nicely decorated, clean and right in the centre of Valletta, so I would definitely recommend it as a base for travelling to other locations too. It's also very close to restaurants. The kitchen is well equipped so we also had a few dinners at home, very useful especially when the weather was less good and we didn't feel like going out. The only downside is that there is no proper living room in the house, so while the bedrooms are very comfortable, if you want to spend time together indoors you have to do so in the (really nice) dining room or Tv area above the kitchen.
