Beautiful, great location and one Rossella

We stayed three nights occupying suites 2 & 4. We all loved the decor, the extra large rooms, huge bathroom and most of all, Rossella’s endless patience and devotion to make our visit a success. We found the location to be best for us. Very quiet neighborhood, and yet 2 to 4 minutes from the waterfront where yo can either stroll on the Birgu side, cross the bridge to another one of the three cities (Senglea) or take the ferry to Valletta.
Breakfasts were good, though adding vegetables would be nice. Bottom line, if you want to avoid the crowded luxury hotels, this is a perfect choice.

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%!
