“Good holiday accomodation”
Reviewed February 12, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We had previously visited Malta before during Carnival and on these occasions had stayed in the Sliema area. Decided to try something different and we were not disappointed with Alfies Place.
House was ideally situated for our needs ( 4 adults) and was an ideal base for day trips etc.
We picked up a hire car at the Airport to get us around during the week we were there. In addition there is a regular ferry service from the 3 cities to Valetta with the price also including the lift to upper Barrakka gardens. Also noted frequent and plentiful bus services to get you around from the three cities.
Alfie was very welcoming to us and could not be faulted. Good holiday.

“A unique terraced house in historical Burgu”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

We were met by the owner who immediately made us feel very welcome and driving us to the house pointed out places of interest we may want to visit. We were charmed by the area we had chosen and could not find fault with the house even a welcome fruit bowl and basic breakfast items to set us up after a long journey.
Being only a few minutes away from a spectacular harbour with good restaurants and a regular ferry to the capital Valletta where you can get buses to any part of the island only costing €1.50 on any length journey even to the ferry over to Gozo highly recommended for a day trip!
If you want something in a truly unique area full of history and amazing architecture we highly recommend Alfie's Alley.
Again , thank you Alfie for being such a great host. We will return!!!

“Home from Home”
Reviewed February 11, 2016 for a stay in January 2016

A charming traditional Maltese house in the heart of Birgu. Alfie made us so welcome, showed us around the area before taking us to the Alley, if you are put off by the word alley, don't be, the streets are historic and narrow, hence the description, they are also immaculate and the local people are very proud , with flowers around their doorways, Alfies place had everything we could possibly need, it was clean and comfortable, and was home from home for a week that passed far to quickly. he even left us some commestibles to give us a head start.
We found that everywhere was within an easy reach of Birgu, at the same time very quiet, so we had the best of both worlds, there are nice bars and restaurants nearby, and don't miss Tuesday's market.
We will certainly be booking to stay there again

“Brilliant”
Reviewed December 6, 2015 for a stay in November 2015

This place is a really good place to stay if you don't want the hustle and bustle of a seaside town. The house is furnished beautifully and has everything you could ask for. We just had a two week holiday there and was more than satisfied, the shops in the square, the restaurants and cafe's in the square were brilliant and the people well they were all ultra friendly and extremely helpful. Have to mention the wonderful food at the Café du Brazil and the wonderful coffee in the little coffee shop in the square.
The owner of the house we stayed in was called Alfie and he was so kind to us and a super host. He showed us everything when we arrived and even took us for our first drink. Nothing was too much trouble for him and we would highly recommend staying in one of his properties. A better host could not be found I am sure.
Thank you Alfie for everything, we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Malta and if anyone asks where to stay we would certainly recommend you and your properties.
See you again soon we hope.
