Room 103 was clean & had super harbour views but room VERY small & much more suitable for single occupancy .''Double'' bed only 4'6''/137cm wide; shredded foam pillows; thin, poor quality bed linen; swaying flat-pack...

The Villa Del Porto offers a nice view over the port and the owner is friendly and helpful, and the service good. Room 204 (I don't know about the others) was quite small though and the bed laid through, and unfortunately did not have a view on the port. The place is nice, but at a busy road with single... More

We were in this peaceful guesthouse for 4 days. The owner Aldo is absolutely fantastic and terribly kind, helping you any moment in planning your visits to the island of Malta. Ask for the transfer from airport! If you do not like chaos and touristic places, choose this small guesthouse about 20 minutes by bus n. 3 from Valletta (going... More

Pillows uncomfortable as inside it contains shredded foam. bed sheets too thin and coming off easily. big gap on shower frame in room 204 leaves water ingress on floor. Apart for that... More

I've read good reviews about this hotel and my stay was even above the expectations. The host - Aldo - is extremely helpful and courteous. I got a single room on the ground floor first, it was a bit noisy, and Aldo had immediately arranged a different - a twin - room for me for the same price for the... More

All staff we came into contact with at Villa del Porto were courteous, friendly and helpful. We had pre-booked an airport transfer and were made to feel very welcome by the staff who collected us. Our room, 202, had a wonderful view from the balcony (please see attached picture). Our first evening was a Saturday, and the traffic noise from... More

A very nice bed and breakfast. Aldo the owner is very nice and will help you in anything you want. Breakfast is served on the roof terrace and was exactly what you expect but with a great view. Room was spotlessly clean. Kalkara is a little quiet in March, but there was a hospitable welcome in the couple of bars... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Indulge yourself at our newly opened Boutique Guesthouse. With us, you will enjoy the tradition, history and stories of the village of Kalkara. Kalkara is a fishing village in the south of Malta forming part of the picturesque Grand Harbour. Villa del Porto is situated overlooking Kalkara Port, offering genuine warm comfort in truly historic surroundings. The property was first built over 100 years ago and has recently been restored. Villa Del Porto is a relaxing retreat in the heart of Malta easily accessible to all major attractions. All rooms are equipped with all present commodities including cooling and heating air conditioning, mini bar, in-room digital safe, hair drying facility, LCD cable TV, private bath or shower and laundry service. Whilst enjoying ample public car park space, when staying at Villa del Porto, one can hire a car and discover all hidden treasures of the Maltese Islands at leisure. However, for those who would opt for a tour by public bus, the stop is just 50 metres away. Sandy beach, Pharmacy, Bank, Historic sites, Museums, and tennis courts are also situated close by. Cross the Grand Harbour on the traditional Maltese boat and discover Valletta - Malta's Capital City and Unesco's World Heritage Site. Over here one must visit the famous St. John's Cathedral and other places of interest. Valletta is also popular for designer shops and cafes. And for those who would like to enjoy a relaxing holiday, a stroll on the Kalkara Promenade and Vittoriosa Waterfront whilst enjoying a choice of top restaurants, bars and a Casino is definitely not worth a miss. ... more   less
