With its elegant, tiered balconies overlooking the street, Casa Ellul captures the traditional style of a Valletta townhouse. From the outside of this boutique hotel, it seems little has changed from the moment the Ellul family made it their home back in the 1830s. But step inside and you’ll discover a contemporary haven that celebrates this elegant city's past.

Take in the tranquil central courtyard, gathered around classical statues and historic Maltese features, such as original patterned tiles. Then seek out your suite, where modern artworks and cutting edge design stand alongside original antiques and period features. Keep climbing, and you’ll reach the rooftop terrace – the place to take in panoramic city views.

Casa Ellul puts Valletta's cultural gems right at your feet. You could learn the story of the city's legendary founders, the Knights of St John, at the opulent Grand Master's Palace. Or marvel at baroque artwork at St John's Co-cathedral. Seek out the city's avant garde architecture, from the Open Air Theatre to the ground-breaking new gate to the city. Then watch the sun set from Upper Barrakka Gardens before catching a live show at the Manoel Theatre.
