“Beautiful flat in quiet location”

Just finished a week long stay in Alfie's place and had a lovely time. The flat is beautiful with everything you could need including a clean, spacious bathroom, fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, AC, wifi and a small balcony. It's situated on a quiet street but with a square with cafés, bars and shops right around the corner. The beautiful marina where you can get the ferry to Valletta is only a couple of minutes walk away.

Alfie was a wonderful host, very accommodating and helpful. He supplied us with beach towels and there was even bottled water, milk, tea and basic food stuffs in the fridge when we arrived!

Would absolutely recommend it!

“GREAT BREAK”

Myself, partner and 4yr old daughter have just had a week at Alfie's place, such a pretty Maltese house really gives you an idea of Maltese living yet the house is modern and lovely.

Got the water bus (3 cities ferry) to Valletta everyday only 10 minutes ride but lovely start to your day. Beautiful places to visit The National aquarium is a must see and there is some great fish restaurants.

D' Centre is a little restaurant in the square about 200 yards from the house and Alfie our host is a very helpful nice guy.
We will be back.

Thanks Alfie

“Excellent stay in a very charming and historical neighborhood - Alfie is a great host”

Me and my friend stayed 3 nights at Alfies place.

We really loved the Birgu neighborhood and Alfies apartment, an unique and authentic historical experience. You get close to the local Maltese way of life. Very relaxing and laidback.

Alfie is a very reliable and fun guy. He gave us a good introduction to the neighborhood and was very helpful.

Great value! I'd recommend it to friends.

“Wonderful Maltese Experience”

Alfred our host could' not have been more helpful.He collected us assisted us with our luggage and even stocked the fridge and at the end of our stay he took us back to the airport.
The house itself was a beautiful traditional Maltese property.Downstairs there is a kitchen dining area and spacious modern shower room with a washing machine. Up a beautiful stone staircase fitted with a gate at the top should you require it for safety reasons, you come to two lovely bedrooms 1 twin and 1 double with a small balcony both very comfortable and providing everything you need. The house is very well equipped and the host is always on hand should you require any assistance.
Alfie's place is located in a quaint street up some steps but the pics are misleading they are very wide Maltese steps making them extremely easy to climb. It's very near to the main square where you can find anything you may need. There is a variety of stores and also a collection of bars and cafe's. Around the corner from the square you find the Marina and Grand Harbour where you can catch the ferry to Valletta.
The local sandy beach is a ten minute bus ride away or you can swim off the quay if you prefer..
If you want to experience the real Malta BIrgu/Vittoriosa is a must. The Maltese people are so friendly and they cannot do enough to make you feel welcome. From neighbours,staff in the bars restaurants to just people you pass in the street there is always a friendly greeting..
