Maltese tiles, charming village & historic Mdina!
50 Sqmt Apartment hosted by André
4 Guests . 1 Bedroom . 1 Bathroom


Enjoy authentic local charm and live in Rabat’s historic centre just 10 minute walking distance from the city of Mdina. Experience Malta like a local in this typical Maltese apartment complete with original patterned tiles and colourful wooden windows! You will be surrounded with historic attractions along with some of the best restaurants on the island. This idyllic location is very central and very well connected, making it a perfect base to explore Malta and discover its treasures.

The space
The apartment still retains the original character of historic Maltese homes: High ceilings with iron beams, colourful windows overlooking the historic narrow street and original Maltese tiles.

Guest access
The private 1 bedroom apartment is located on the 1st floor and includes:
• An open living/dining area with a kitchen.
◦ Sofa that transforms into a double bed (140cm x 200cm).
◦ TV with local free-to-air channels.
◦ Kitchen equipped with a fridge/freezer, hob, oven and a toaster oven.

• Bedroom:
◦ Large king size bed (160cm x 200cm).
◦ Compact en-suite bathroom with a small shower.

Other things to note

• The Eco-Tax of €0.50 per guest per night is not included in the price. I will send you a request to pay this tax after your booking is confirmed.

• The apartment is on the 1st floor and there is no lift. There are 20 steps to reach the 1st floor. There is also a small step to access the bathroom.

• Access to the bathroom is through the bedroom.

• The apartment measures 50 meters squared. The space is ideal for 2 persons but can accommodate up to 4 adults who are comfortable with the sleeping arrangements.

• The Wi-Fi connection is intended for light browsing, sending messages and reading mail. Data is limited to 300Mb per day and speed averages 3Mb/s. The connection is not ideal for professional use.

• Like most old Maltese homes, the apartment is built to keep relatively cool in the hot summer period. Although there is no Air-Conditioner, I provide fans during the warmer months or on request.

• Due to our warm climate, Maltese homes do not have central heating. Please keep in mind that during the winter period indoor temperatures might not be as warm as you are used to back home. I advice my guests to pack warm indoor clothing during colder months (November - April). For your comfort I provide extra blankets and an electric heater.

• Camera surveillance is in operation in the common areas of the apartment building.

• This apartment is fully licensed by the Malta Tourism Authority. This means that the accommodation conforms to standards of comfort and safety. The registration number is: HPI/6802

Getting around

Due to its central location, Rabat is one of the best connected villages on the island. The apartment is located just a short 8 minute walk from the Rabat bus interchange. From the bus interchange you will be able to reach many places of interest by public transport. From the Airport just take the X3 bus to arrive in Rabat.

There is also the tourist Hop On and Hop Off Bus that tours round the island and a Train tour that takes you round Rabat and its surroundings.

If you are exploring the island by car, parking on the streets nearby is free of charge. The nearest parking spaces are about 120m away in front of the entrance to the St.Paul Catacombs.
