Mdina is truly a unique city full of charm and character and its understated splendour and tranquility create the perfect ambiance for an exclusive or romantic getaway.

Mdina is the old capital of Malta and is located in the centre of the island.  This magical medieval town is known as 'The Silent City' because of it's relaxed and chilled ambiance.

You’ll have great fun exploring the cobbled narrow streets, the churches monasteries and palaces.

Why not go for a walk around the defensive walls of Mdina, a whole city encased in an open air museum and one of Europe’s finest examples of an ancient walled city.

There are several historical sites, galleries, theatres and villages to explore close by. Your hotel is centrally located, just a short walk away from numerous sights.
