This was my first time in Malta and I stayed just one night. When booking I was confused about where to stay; Valletta (history) or St Julian’s (food/entertainment), Hotel or apartment?
Blanc Boutique in Sliema was a perfect choice. Very stylish and comfortable, good central location to explore both Valletta & St Julian’s without the bureaucracy and fuss of a hotel.
If you are an independent traveller who values peace & quiet and doesn’t need a full buffet breakfast ignore the poor reviews and book Blanc.
