Valletta is known as ‘a city built by gentlemen for gentlemen’ and you couldn’t hope for a more traditional hotel than La Falconeria. There is wonderful history here as, back in the days of The Knights of St. John, the nobles bred and trained their Maltese Falcons in this street, one of which was sent to the King of Spain every year as rent! The very front of the hotel building is hundreds of years old – the rear was destroyed during WWII and rebuild in more modern style around a central courtyard. Its rooms are well-appointed and comfortable, and you’ll find all the creature comforts you would expect. The real beauty of the hotel is its location – you can easily stroll to all the ‘must see’ places, you can catch a ferry across to Sliema, the bus station
is within walking distance and the streets around the old town are full of colourful eateries and bars in which to sit, quench thirst and appetite, and watch the world go by. Finally, whilst you’re here, make sure you make the trip to M’Dina – the silent city. It’s totally mesmerising. We’re huge fans.
