Nice guesthouse, close to the sea, love the terrrace, good service. I like the swedish touch of the maltese house. I recommend this to everyone who don't like boring hotels. This is really nice. Why don't take a glass of wine with the host?

We spent 10 days at Bla Dorren and everything was just perfect. We enjoyed every single day, breakfast is very good, location is really nice close to everything you need and gives you the chance to go and see the old town. Marianne and her husband cared about all details and we thank them very much.

This 2-storey 100 years old townhouse give you some authenticity in artificial town of Sliema. It is nicely restored by Swedish owner, which adds some Scandinavian touch. 3 guest rooms with own bathrooms, roof terrace, courtyard, breakfast room gives enough space for comfortable stay. Perfect breakfast and functioning wi-fi as well.

If you're looking for a quiet hideaway, a good base for exploring the island or want to stay somewhere with a real Maltese flavour, then Bla Dorren is ideal. It might not have all the glitz of a five-star hotel, there aren't bars, pools, a spa or room service, but for me this guesthouse outclasses many expensive hotels that could... More

A perfect guesthouse for us that want to be close to resturants and beaches, but off from traffic and noice from the city. A tasteful breakfast as a start of the day after a good night sleep. We are already looking forward to going back and meetIng our caring hosts. Catharina & Hans

A marvelous staircase takes you up to your fine bright room on first floor. The rooms have old original tiling and a modern bathroom. On the second floor you have the... More

The only inconvenience with Bla Dorren was the difficulty in parking close to the B & B. Everything else was really outstanding. The welcome from Margaretha and her husband was of the warmest. We were even invited to share an evening meal with them in their gorgeous courtyard on our arrival. Much appreciated. The traditional Sliema house has been beautifully... More
