“Fantastic residence and an outstanding welcome - we'll be back!”
Reviewed October 18, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We have greatly enjoyed our stay at The Alley in Birgu, and can't thank Alfie enough for his warm welcome - he made us feel at home right from the very start and made sure that we had all we needed.

The house itself is a wonderfully traditional two bedroom house in a quaint little alley within the historical town of Birgu - it has all the mod cons you might require, including an air conditioning, and two sizeable bedrooms, both ensuite. The house is tastefully decorated throughout, and is full of character. We spent many a happy evening sipping wine on the upstairs terrace, or wandering around the beautiful Birgu bastions. There are plenty of cafes, wine bars and restaurants in the vicinity, as well as a tourist info service just round the corner from the house.

Parking was never a problem - there were always plenty of spaces right outside the city walls, an easy 5 minute stroll from the house.

All in all, I will certainly be recommending The Alley to my relatives and will surely be back for another peaceful stay in Birgu.

Thanks Alfie for your wonderful hospitality!

“Memorable Stay”
Reviewed October 9, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

From the moment I made contact with Alfie, the process of booking the house was flawless and uncomplicated. He was kind enough to answer all my questions and gave very useful advice prior to our arrival. The house itself is located in a beautiful part of Malta. The alley ways and historic buildings where people still live today just add to the experience of immersing oneself in the Maltese culture. Alfie's place is authentically Maltese and there is everything that you need to make your stay comfortable, even leaving a welcome pack to get you started. To add to the experience, Alfie was a wonderful host and we are yet to meet a better one on our 8 week trip through Europe. He generously meets his guests with a drink at the local bar and then shows you around the area so you can find your way around and know where to go to catch the ferry. He even showed us where to park our rented car which was only a few minutes walk from the house and rang us a couple of times just to make sure all was well with our stay.

Alfie, we had a wonderful stay and we can't thank you enough for making us feel so welcomed. It was great chatting with you about your time in Australia. We are sorry that we only had 9 nights but we are already planning on coming back sometime soon. Will definitely be in contact with you when we venture to Malta again. Cheers Michelle and Family

“Perfect Rental”
Reviewed September 29, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Beautiful house in side street but near everything you need and only ten minutes by ferry to Valletta. Birgu is beautiful with good restaurants and bars.
House as good as (actually better than) advertised and Alfie very easy going but makes sure everything is ready for visitors.
Made for a perfect break after a stressful summer.
Cannot recommend strongly enough - just fear if I do it won't be available for my future visits.
Thanks, Alfie

“Excellent accomodation and even better host”
Reviewed September 5, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Dear Alfredo thank you for everything, the apartment is great, very clean and well equipped and suited all our needs. We had such a great time and I'd recommend it straight away to anyone. Amazing value for money and thanks again for your hospitality and help of renting the car. Next time in Malta there's no need to find another place. Everyone sends their regards.

“Lovely holiday cottage and great host!”
Reviewed August 1, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We stayed at The Alley for 2 weeks. The house is great, with everything you need for a comfortable stay, there was already food in the fridge when we arrived which was much appreciated. Alfie is a great host, nothing is too much to ask and he was really easy to contact. He took us on a tour of Birgu when we arrived and even bought us a drink! Birgu is really lovely, easy to reach Valletta by ferry but there is lots to see and do in the town itself. There is also a (reasonably quiet) beach just a 20 minute walk away. We had a great stay and if we return to Malta we will definitely book again. Thank you Alfie!
