Lucia Nova Hotel in Valletta, Malta

May 27, 2011 by

Lucia Nova is a new boutique self-catering accommodation in Valletta, Malta.

Lucia Nova, is a Maltese house: historic, slightly worn at the edges, with a little bit of the old mixed with the new. Distraught original walls conserved for their splendor, are combined with stunning fabrics and modern design furnishings and lamps. The hotel is located in the old quarter of the town, where the windows and balconies are decorated with the day’s washing, hanging out like street decorations ready for a parade.

This hotel is a place like no other. The old building has been mixed with new luxury and design, but keeps its true personality and charm. Lucia Nova is a true mix of old and new, and this can be experienced in every area of the building.

Lucia Nova philosophy is called “The NO HOTEL Philosophy.” The philosophy of No Hotel is to avoid old conventional cliché hotels. This includes: No to unneccessary large spaces, No to single dose toiletries, No to overly lit hotel facades and Yes to small functional spaces, Yes to eco-friendly accommodation, Yes to personalized service, Yes to privacy.

The house has a very distinctive setup and consists of one room on top of each other, connected by a large spiral stone staircase, which stretches from the ground floor to the roof. The first floor consists of a living room, dining room and kitchen. The second floor houses a bedroom with ensuite shower and wooden balcony, with side sea views. The third floor has the second bedroom with ensuite and wooden balcony, with side sea views. The final and fourth floor consists of a roof terrace.

Lucia Nova’s features include: designer interiors, Maltese wooden balconies, Venetian headboard, Flos & Kartell Lamps, Florentine hand-made wall lights , Maltese floor tiles, Orthopedic king-size mattress, feather & down pillows, commissioned art, kitchen with hob, fridge, freezer and microwave, large overhead shower (ensuite), Egyptian cotton towels, 32″ flat-panel television in bedroom
movies on demand (free), a selection of music, iPod sound dock and wireless Internet (additional charge).

Lucia Nova is a place to encourage and inspire; this is achieved both by the location and the interior design, giving guests a feeling of luxury in an old part of town full of surprises and splendor. This makes Valletta by far the most fascinating and interesting city life in the whole of Malta.
