Experience an authentic Maltese townhouse newly transformed into a quaint, upmarket guesthouse, just outside the beautiful "Silent City" Mdina. Located at first floor, the spacious triple room has been designed with romance and nostalgia in mind. A beautifully restored original brass bed takes you back in time to Malta a century ago. This room leads to a smaller room with an extra single bed, a small kitchenette and back balcony with beautiful garden views.

The space
The room has a small desk/dining table and an open wardobe. The kitchenette is small but fully-equipped for basic cooking. A small spa-inspired bathroom complements the romantic feel of the room.

The house is perfectly located for visiting places of interest, dining out and much more, yet for when you choose to stay in, the room is equipped with the latest tv technology offering thousands of channels, as well as a sound system - just plug in any device and relax!

Where you’ll be

Ir-Rabat, Malta

The house is located 5 minutes walk from Mdina gate, just across the street from Howard Gardens and 200 metres away from Roman Villa. One minute walk away is the Rabat Interchange where several buses depart for Valletta (45min journey) and all other significant destinations. Also a few minutes walk away from many fine restaurants and bars, shops, baker, pharmacy, bank, souvenir shops, fine clothing and jewellery. The alley on the first corner will take you into a labyrinth of alleys where you can get a glimpse of the locals’ daily life and activities in the heart of Rabat. The location is only 5km away from Dingli Ciffs and 10km away from the nicest beaches on the island Ghajn Tuffieha Bay, Golden Bay, Popeye's Village and Mellieha Bay (all are one bus ride away).

Sitting on top of a hill overlooking a large portion of the island, Mdina is one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city and extraordinary in its mix of medieval and baroque architecture. Impressive palaces line its narrow, shady streets. Mdina has become a major tourist attraction.

Rabat, the village that neighbours Mdina, on the other hand, is known for its quiet, more rural character and natural beauty. It is also well established on the tourist map due to its archaeological and historical sites, amongst which The Roman Villa (Domus Romana), catacombs, St. Paul's Grotto and the fine churches and monasteries. Rabat is also known for one of the few forested areas the country knows, at Buskett, the entrance to which can be found on the outskirts of the village. The house is fronted by Howard Gardens, a very well-maintained public landscaped garden, with the ditch below forming a natural border between Rabat and Mdina. It offers a good sight-seeing spot on one end, plenty of benches to sit and relax in the shade of the trees, as well as a kiosk serving drinks and light lunches or snacks. Places to visit in the area: Palazzo Falson Historic House Museum, Mdina Cathedral, Mdina Glass, St. Paul's Cathedral Museum, Fontanella tea gardens, Palazzo de Piro, Mdina Dungeons, The Knights of Malta, National Museum of Natural History, and a lot more! As for crazier nightlife, though the very young might tend to look for accommodation in St. Julians area which is the mecca of nightlife in Malta, it is worth mentioning that two of Malta’s largest and most popular nightclubs outside of Paceville/St. Julians area, are located on the outskirts of Rabat. Gianpula Complex and Numero Uno, both of which are open from Friday to Sunday with various events and international dj’s throughout summer, are located a short taxi ride away from our guesthouse.

Hospitality and catering are my passion and I have been in this business for over 10 years. I started hosting guests in my first rental accommodation in the heart of St. Julians, then in neighbouring Swieqi, and more recently, refurbished an old Maltese townhouse in Rabat, just outside Mdina, transforming it into a quaint little guest house, my favourite project to date. All three locations are highly rated by my guests as being conveniently just a short walk away from the main attractions of the locality. My main satisfaction is to have my guests say that they have had a great, stress-free holiday base at my accommodation. I love the simple life, wining and dining, and I also love travelling, especially to far-away exotic destinations.
