Lets get the "disapointing" out of the way. TV didnt work. Yes, i know you don't go on holiday to watch TV, but whats the point in providing one, if it's not going to work. I e-mailed the owner with this point, and he never replied. hopefully it will be fixed for the next guest. As mentioned by several previous guests, a Welcome Pack has been provided in the past. This is discretionary. We didn't get one From previous comments, it sounded great. Some wine, bread, cookies, Yummy. If you are going to provide for one, you really should provide for all. OK, moan over. The above would not stop us from staying here in the future. Really, all the good stuff has been mentioned before, and i totally agree. Why would you spend alot of dosh to stay in a posh hotel like the Phoenicia with a view of a bus station from your room, when you have views like this. Reality is so much better than the photos provided. First impressions were good. The appartment is much bigger than I thought it would be. Decorated in a modern style, everything is provided you will need. Wifi worked a treat Some reviews have complained about the steps up to the apartment Well, D'uh, you need to climb the steps to get to those fab views !! Seriously, it's not that many steps. Valletta is not that big, so you are in an easy walking distance to everything. 10 minutes to the tour pick up points, Tour companies don't pick up at private apartments. In this instance, the Phonecia or the Independance monument is their choice of collection point 15 to a good sunday flea market, 2 minutes to the first of a stack of restaurants / cafe's. Book this apartment ASAP. Next year is the City of Culture for Valletta, and it will be very busy.
