My friend and I booked a last minute escape from London's cold and gray to Malta for a long weekend in February. Being from California and Australia, we were in denial that the Mediterranean actually has a winter. So while the cold and gray followed us, we found happy respite in the amazing Casa Ellul. A frequent traveler, its hard to find gems like this. The right price, unflappable service, and the perfect location in downtown Valletta. We had to drag ourselves out in the rain from our room.
