“Loved living in Old Mint No. 1 for a month”
Reviewed 27 December 2013 for a stay in November 2013

In my opinion Malta’s only city worth staying in is Valletta, and the best place to stay in Valletta is Old Mint No 1.
With plans to be in Malta a month we could not have chosen better. No 1 is a spectacular design and we loved it. It is huge, furnished in a contemporary style, has lots of storage space, and is presented fresh and clean. The well-supplied kitchen got a lot of use and the cookware and equipment was better than we ever expected from a rental unit. The knives were sharp, there were lots of options for pots and pans and the dishware & flatware was good quality. Only two things were missing: an automatic pastizzi dispenser ☺ and a cappuccino/latte maker, but our favorite take away coffee at South Street Café was just a few blocks away and cost only one euro each (pastizzi 50 cents). The bathrooms were roomy and functioned well, as did the washing machine. Since we had so much time in Malta we weren’t out exploring every minute of every day and appreciated the fact that everything in the apartment was in great condition and comfortable. The location is terrific, especially because plentiful overnight parking is an easy 3 blocks away. There are scads of restaurant choices within 6 blocks and yet this apartment is situated on a mostly residential street with a bakery next door. The owner of the building was very accommodating and sent her cleaning crew in before 2 different guest couples arrived to join us for a week each. Clair is so lovely that we felt we made a friend for life. We were sad to leave Malta and sad to leave Old Mint No 1,but look forward to returning again soon.

Reviewed 10 September 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Me and my family are very happy with our vacation, and the apartment was the most important thing for us, beacuse it was worthed. We were very confy and pleased with what we found there. Just as in pictures, we enjoyed a nice, chic elegant and clean, with full kithcen and all modern convenience apartment, situated in the heart of Valetta.

I really want to thank Paul, Nicolina and Claire for their kindness and respect! Hope to see you soon!

Best regards,

“Large Apartment in Good Location”
Reviewed 13 May 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Old Mint 1 is a large well equipped apartment mid way between main street and ferry service. There is no view and no direct sun coming which would keep the place cool in summer time. We would have preferred the Penthouse which has a balcony and roof terrace but unfortunately this was not available for our stay. Read the very fine print about extra power costs which I think should be more clearly presented. Payment was a not easy and would be much better with PayPal or Credit Card. We took the option of having a cab meet us which worked well. I don't think we would have found the place without someone who was familiar with it. Claire answered all our queries very well.

Thank you for your feedback, please note that our Booking Form terms and Condition's clearly state the electric conditions, under point 5. of which font size is the same throughout the Form. I note that you were not charged anything for electricity. We have had in the past where electric consumption is not monitored guest that leave heating/cooling appliances on whilst not at the property, thus we give an allowance built within the rental cost, we rarely charge guest only on extreme electric usage. We dont have a credit card merchant facility and thus a bank to bank transfer is the only option at present with credit card facility being looked into.

“Top class accommodation close to attractions”

This is one of the best holiday apartments we have ever stayed in.....it is far better than the photos. It is clean, well equipped, and is furnished to a high standard with comfort guaranteed. The owner, Claire, is wonderful. The agents are professional and a joy to deal with....check in and check out were both efficient, and the check in was informative. We took the option of a taxi to and from the airport as arranged by the agent....probably cost more than going it alone, but it was an excellent service and definitely worth any extra cost....and at least you know in advance what you are going to be paying, and the taxi turned up bang on time each time. The drivers were lovely and gave lots of information about the area.

When we go back to Malta we will be booking one of Claire's apartments again.

“A really comfortable stay”
Reviewed 17 August 2012 for a stay in July 2012

Flat 1, The Old Mint is a fantastic renovation! The flat has been completed to a very high level and absolutely everything was provided for our comfort and went towards making our holiday very enjoyable and memorable. Although finished with a modern look (and a great eye for detail) the core of the building still retains its history (and dates back to 1667 and the time of the Knights of St. John). It was great talking to the owner about the history of the building (it is her flair for design that brings this building to life) and the friendly reception that we got, again, went a long way to making our holiday enjoyable.

We have been back three weeks now and miss Malta terribly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the island. The Old Mint is perfectly placed in Valetta for all of the attractions that the island’s capital has to offer. We will definitely stay at the Old Mint again at some point soon. For those seeking a true taste of the ‘Malta Experience’ then we can’t recommend this apartment highly enough.
