    During the Retreat

    Point de Vue Guest House in Rabat   12 rooms, bed and breakfast. Reserve directly with the guest house. Use the phrase "I am part of the 'University Group'" in the registration textbox to get the €25/day special rate. It is recommended that retreat participants stay here, as transportation from other hotels/lodgings can be time consuming.

    Includes an Internet Café (free for guests? will check) 


    Some hotels, more centrally located

    If you are arriving early, or staying on after the retreat, these might be good options:

    Hotel Golden Tulip Vivaldi  Four Star Hotel in the Paceville / St Julians area, bed and breakfast. €60/day, €70/day for double occupancy (you can also use "University Group" as a reference to get the €60 B&B rate). Rooms have "modem connection point"

    Alexandra Hotel Three Star Hotel in St Julians, bed and breakfast, close to Golden Tulip. €20/day, in room WiFi. 

    Hotel Castille Three Star Hotel in Valetta, bed and breakfast. €40/day, €50/day double occupancy.

    While in Malta...

    Hypogeum of Ħal-Saflieni, "the only prehistoric underground temple in the world".

    The arrival day (January 25th) may be the best time to do a group tour (they take groups of up to ten, and a tour takes about an hour).
