Quiet location, close to the seashore (like every place in Malta :o), grocery store nearby... We came with baby, and there was crib and bathinette waiting for us, free of charge. Very satisfied with The Mercury Residence.
very good position
The apartment was dirty. There was just one big window in the bedroom; the bathroom and the kitchen had no windows. There were not detergents in the kitchen and in the bathroom. The elevator has some problems (it's better if you don't use it if you suffer from backache).
Anna is just in a word : excellent ! Also, we've really appreciated to have George from the airport to the appartment. The sea is only at 100m. There is also restaurants/bars/supermaket close to the appartment. a good place for a very reasonnable price !
We only missed a TV/Microwave, but this is just a detail.
The apartment was spacious and clean, there were also a lot of clean towels. Kitchen was well equipped. Balcony was small, but useful. There was a laundromate too, which we didn't use though. The location was very good, in a quiet and generally nice area, within only a few minutes walk to the Sliema - St Julian promenade, where bus stops are located. In the other direction, in 10-15 minutes one can walk to the Sliema seafront to catch the ferry boat from Sliema to Valletta for just 1€. Near the strand there's a large Tower Supermarket located. Free wi-fi access was a big advantage. If you're not looking for luxuries, but for an apartment in a good location for a reasonable price, it's worth to consider staying in the Mercury Residence.
The check-in procedure might be sometimes complicated, as there's no reception in the Mercury Residence. We came on Sunday and had to use transport arranged by the hotel (the driver gave us a key to the apartment), which is admittedly very convenient, but not cheap (20€) in comparison to the public transport.
Decent sized accommodation. It was away from the main road (bars/restaurants) but not too far to walk and a lot quieter. Well equipped kitchen. Plenty of clean towels. As it is apparently used by students I was a bit apprehensive about it being noisy, but it wasn't. All in all it was a good base.
Major issue: French doors did not close properly which made the bedroom a mosquito magnet! Cleaning staff came a little too early. Could do with some pictures on the walls to brighten them up.
reasonably priced low to middle scale type hotel and was good at this quiet time of the season
kinda old fashioned
it was peaceful, and the neighborhood was very nice and funny, there are lot of autentical shops, near and the atmosfere is sharming
view wasn't so good, and ceheck-in was litlle bit complicate
Accesible, well ordered. Linen changed when needed. Pleasant concierge.
The proprieter should be available at least the day after arrival if not on the day - we arrived on a Friday night and had to use a public telephone the next day to contact her, re various difficulties, as thetelephone in the apartment was not working..
Flat was very spacious and in a good location for my purposes. The flat came without fans and it was stifling hot, but the administrator kindly got them for us (and on a weekend, too).
Despite the booking.com blurb saying they were accepted, credit cards were not accepted on account of machine used to process them being "broken", so it was an inconvenience to have to go to a cashpoint and withdraw funds from my credit card (and be charged all sorts of additional fees). This is truly budget accomodation -- no soap, no paper towels, etc.
