Could not have felt more welcome!

A brilliant start to our mini tour of Malta and Gozo we stayed here for 3 nights in suite 4. A beautifully designed and thought out bedroom and bathroom on the top floor, there is a massive, very comfy bed, a double shower and double sinks.
Breakfast was varied and delicious, particularly the fruit and homemade cakes/pastries. L really loved the different honeys!
All the family made you feel incredibly welcome, were very helpful and we will definitely return on our next trip to Birgu!

Amazing Experience

Excellent boutique hotel with fantastic service and a great experience. Close to the tourist sites and the marina. Getting the boat to Valletta is very easy with great views along the way. Would recommend 100%!

Relaxing stay, away from the crowds

Locanda La Gelsomina is a luxurious, yet cozy Asian themed B&B in a historic building. Our room was clean and very well maintained. We especially liked the information we got ahead of our trip and help in organizing certain activities.
The location is perfect if you prefer to stay away from the crowds. There are some very good restaurants nearby, which can be reached in a few minutes by foot. Valletta can be easily reached by ferry. In general, an ideal base to explore Malta.
Suggestions for improvement: The "theft proof" hangers and wall-mounted hair drier seemed a bit out of place. Furthermore, we'd expected a wider range of toiletries, such as conditioner or cotton buds, as we usually travel rather light.
That said, we would return to Locanda La Gelsomina and recommend staying there if you value a smaller place off the beaten track.
