Mdina By Night
Clearly, all the museums and attractions will be closed after the sun set but a visit to this stunning fortified city in the evening will offer a totally different experience. To make your nocturnal trip a truly memorable occasion, you need to go prepared. So pack a few goodies in a bag – a bottle of wine, some cheese, maybe some nibbles, olives, and crackers – and head towards the far end of the city. There you will find the bastions, which overlook large parts of Malta and by day provide arguably the best views on the island.

“Comfortable, well-equipped and conveniently located self-catering”
Mdina View is a comfortable and well-equipped self-catering house, with a magnificent view from its roof-top terrace. It's conveniently located at the Mdina gate and, despite being next to a parking lot, was very quiet.Friendly hosts, Alex and Erika, made sure that we had everything we needed and assisted us in booking a taxi to get to the airport on our departure. We used public buses, which stop near Mdina View, to get to Mdina from Valletta, and for a day's outing to Buskett Gardens, Dingli Cliffs and the neolithic temples. A very enjoyable 3-night stay, which could definitely have been longer!
“perfect location in the middle of Malta”
Very enjoyable week in M'Dina; we were welcome in a pleasant way by the owner .The accomodation is very nice and clean and being in the middle of the island, it was convenient to go anywhere within 40minutes with a scooter! The scenery is marvellous and Maltese people are very friendly and helpful if you need it.
“A short but sweet stay”
We only had the chance to stay one night but the host was amazing, making us feel welcome, offering advice about the area and even offering to help us out with our damaged car! Thanks
“Three levels of comfort...”
We travelled to Malta mid-January and as it was during the winter season, we decided not stay close to the coast and instead preferred a more inland location. Mdina was our choice and we were very fortunate to find this beautiful property just outside Mdina City. The photos looked great and the communication with Alex before our arrival made us already look forward to seeing the place. We were not disappointed. Alex welcomed us warmly on arrival and picked us up at the airport in his cute little throwback camper van. We enjoyed his hospitality and felt like good friends only after a few minutes of meeting each other. He was attentive and reachable at all times during our stay. The property itself is in great condition with quality furnishings and modern facilities. Spread over three levels, it felt less like a holiday home and more like a place we could actually live in. The rooftop terrace offers great views of Mdina and Rabat. Unfortunately the weather was too wet/cold to allow us enjoy it. The best thing about this property is that it is right outside Mdina City and offers great transport links to Valletta as well as being surrounded by quality restaurants in the area. It is also a walking distance into Rabat. It is ideal for a couple or small family but as there are stairs to the upper and lower levels, it may be necessary to supervise small kids at all times. As it was winter, we did use more heating than we would have liked but in the summer, this should be no problem at all for anyone considering staying here. In summary, we enjoyed our stay at this property and will try to stay here again on future trips. Oh and thanks Alex for the local Maltese pastries :-)
“Excellent place to stay, close to many historic sites”
Well designed accommodation to fit a small place, just right for 2 people. Owner very helpful with tips on getting around and where to eat. Unfortunately the weather was very poor while we were there so we weren't able to appreciate the roof terrace. No need to hire a car - the buses are excellent and very cheap. Very clean and well furnished.
“Perfect location, panoramic view, modern and comfortable!”
This 3-floor townhouse is a combination of old and new Malta. Located in beautiful Mdina and convenient to the rest of the island. The bus is around the corner, the main gate to the old walled city of Mdina is out the front door, and the roof top offers a panoramic view that is beyond description. The hosts are incredibly gracious and full of useful information. This is a MUST place to stay!
“The second time we've visited and still great .....”
This is a great little house for a couple. Wonderful modern interior on 3 floors. Especially wonderful is the roof terrace with a bbq. Great for early morning breakfast and coffee or a later bbq. Alex and Erica went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating and even picked us up from the airport - a great find and one we will use again.
“A beautiful house in an ideal location”
The house was exactly as described, designed to blend in with the older buildings around Mdina but equipped with all mod cons. It was also very clean. The owner of the house collected us from the airport and helpfully drove us around the town of Rabat pointing out the best shops and restaurants. The location was ideal, both Mdina and Rabat have a lot to offer and there are excellent bus connections to the rest of the island. We found the bus service much improved from our last visit three years ago. Highlights of the trip were Casa Bernard in Rabat, the Dingli cliffs, Marsaxlokk, St Paul's grotto in Rabat, and the Church of St Paul Shipwrecked in Valetta. We also received a warm welcome at Mass in the local church. The Point de Vue restaurant directly next door offers great food and wonderful service. We would definitely come to this property again. Note: due to the very narrow stairs it would not be suitable for people with access or mobility problems.
“Wonderful location, spotlessly clean and comfortable interior and great hosts!!”
Had a great week in Mdina View that will never be forgotten! The location is superb for exploring Mdina and Rabat. We felt very comfortable and safe here. Laying out on the sunbeds was very relaxing and had some very classy meals in Rabat. Alexander and family were very accommodating and approachable and we really felt they wanted us to enjoy our week there. We could do it all again!!
“location, location, location and comfort too!!”
One of the very few places to stay right in Mdina, the apartment is just opposite the main gate. The apartment is beautifully furnished in modern stylish furniture and artwork. The rooftop terrace has the most amazing 180 degree view over countryside and views towards Valletta and the distant ocean. Everything was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, and the townhouse was well supplied. Alex and Erika were very friendly, welcoming and helpful and could not do enough to ensure a perfect stay. We loved it.
