Valletta G-House is a charming, historic home in an excellent location for sightseeing in Valletta. The house is well-appointed and just as it appears in photographs. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed, and we REALLY appreciated the welcome basket after a long day of travel. The owners are very responsive and easy to reach by text, which is reassuring.
I want to give special praise for the airport pickup. We missed our flight from London to Valletta, so instead of arriving early in the afternoon, we arrived at 12:40 am the next day. We were so relieved to see Salah waiting for us in the airport. He was friendly and helpful, and we engaged him for our drive back to the airport.
The location is very good for sightseeing, just a ten minute walk from major sights such as St. John's Co-Cathedral and the Grand Master's Palace. The Malta Experience is right around the corner, and there are plenty of good restaurants nearby.
Now for the downsides. The bathroom is on the lower level, two flights down from the bedroom. The ceilings are very low downstairs, so beware if you are tall! I should note, though, that these things are disclosed on the website and when booking, so you know exactly what to expect.
Why four "stars" instead of five? The luggage storage situation, which I have discussed with the owners, is incredibly frustrating. You cannot leave your luggage after 10 am, and the only place to check bags in Valletta is about a mile away, uphill. Moreover, their hours for storage are limited. We found it very stressful having to deal with luggage storage on our last day in Valletta. I have been reassured that the owners are re-considering the luggage storage situation.
That said, Valletta G-House is a special property worth a stay in Malta.
The G house is charming, elegant and quirky. The location is amazing. A steady climb up Republic or Mercanti Streets in to the Center of town where all the shops, restaurants and tourist attractions are located. A quick walk in the other direction takes you to The Malta Experience attraction, which I highly recommend. The little shop around the corner, appears tiny but it just keeps going back. You will find most things you will need. They had the best strawberries, the size of plums! I did not meet the owners in person. I did not need to. Alison and I communicated by text and she was very attentive and responsive. Kudos to their driver Salah who picked me up at airport. He was charming. The only negative comment I have is that there is construction going on across the street. On a couple of days they were loading construction debris and it was a bit noisy. Of course this is totally outside the owners control. Would definitely recommend!
I stayed at the Valletta G House for a few days following a business trip. I wanted to stay over for vacation to experience Valletta. The house is so pretty and superbly furnished reflecting the historic character of the surrounding Valletta. It is also very well maintained and clean. The location of the house was perfect just metres away from all the historic and cultural sites, as well as restaurants, and also the sea! The owner who personally came to meet me was very kind and provided me with great tips on places to visit, shops, etc. I really recommend this place for anyone looking for a truly authentic and comfortable experience in Valletta.
The Valletta G-house is everything it’s advertised to be.What’s advertised is exactly what you get - a good bite of history, a real experience for Valletta and Malta, in a setting that’s so genuine, with attention to detail, but took our breath away. To top it all, Suzanne and Alison are the kind of hosts that we like - always there for you when you need them but absolutely not intrusive. Throughout our stay they were at the end of the line and very responsive through messages and calls. They recommended restaurants, put us in touch with a great taxi driver, and even arranged our airport transfer. Absolutely stress-free.
We have recently returned from a fabulous little trip to malta which was made truly special by the g-house team.
We were met personally at the airport by their meet and greet staff and shown some sights en route. We arrived at the g-house and were totally enchanted on stepping into this gem of a property! It is small but of perfect proportions for a dreamy romantic stay for two! The owners gave us a call soon after we arrived to ask if we needed anything and repeatedly asked us to call them if we had any requests during their stay. In fact, I did ask for a recommendations to celebrate a special night with my partner and they gave us an ace recommendation for a night that we shall not forget! I would wholeheartedly recommend this bijoux house to any couple wanting to stay in and explore the island from beautiful Valletta. It is wonderful!
