“A cracking holiday home right in the heart of the medieval Mdina - book it!” I booked Agatinas in Mdina for my husband's 60th birthday and we absolutely loved it. Our adult sons joined us and we loved the fact that there was so much space, divided onto different floors, and especially enjoyed the different balconies and terraces, so we didn't have to be on top of each other all the time and could have some down time occasionally. Agatinas is located at the heart of the maze of narrow medieval streets that make up the true centre of the Silent City, as Mdina is known. So many of the holiday properties which advertise themselves as being in Mdina are actually outside the city's ancient walls. If you want a really authentic Mdina stay, Agatinas is the place. You will receive a very warm welcome from the family and they are amazingly helpful. For example, they kindly arranged for a 'surprise' birthday cake and balloons to welcome us and also recommended and then booked a table at an excellent restaurant in Mdina to celebrate my husband's birthday. Mdina is ideally placed for exploring the whole of Malta as it's not very far from anywhere by car. If we return to Malta, there is no doubt that we'd choose to stay at Agatinas again.
“great place” Our holiday in Birgu, at The Alley, was excellent. The apartament was very nice, located near to shops, bars, pharmacy (affordable prices). The owner is the best host that we have had (very helpful). It is the perfect place to stay if you want to feel the matese culture and to meet the real people from Birgu. I recommend you to stay at Alfie's if you want an authentic maltese holiday!
