HOTEL

Hotel Kappara*** [map]

A special rate of 60 euros/night including breakfast at this hotel has been negotiated. The main advantages are (i) tranquillity (University is 5 mins walk across a pleasant valley) (ii) relatively cheap rates. The disadvantages are that it is in a residential area, not that close (ie 15mins walk) to bars and restaurants.

Transport to Valletta: Buses 24, 25, 35
