"Terrific value, fantastic host"
Chose this place based on the previous reviews and was not disappointed. Alfie is responsive, efficient and excellent company. He picked us up from the airport in his van and treated us to drinks before bringing us to the apartment. You could not hope for better concierge service at a 5-star hotel. We were briefed on the peculiarities of the apartment (coin-operated electricity and safety gate at the top of the stairs!), very useful telephone numbers and local information as well as advice on things to see and do. The starter pack of essential foods was great considering we arrived at night and needed breakfast things. The apartment is a piece of living history - especially when we found out that it's actually Alfie's childhood home. Some toiletries and towels are available but if you are finicky about things like that, of course bring your own. Bedrooms need to be accessed by stairs, for those with limited mobility. Hot water is reliable. Wifi is excellent, but for cell service, you may have to step out into the street. And there are no secrets on the street! Sound carries a lot, so you can keep track of the comings and goings of the neighbours. I didn't find this a problem - all part of the experience of living in a community space instead of a tourist resort - but if you are particularly jumpy at unfamiliar noises, this will be a consideration. Having said that, it is a civilized neighbourhood, so it is very quiet at night. The location is excellent - off the town square, a short walk to the bus-stop and ferry terminal for access to Valletta and the rest of Malta. Of course you are in the heart of the three cities, where you can easily explore the wealth of history and scenery surrounding the Grand Harbour on foot. There are several eateries and convenience stores nearby, though the latter will mostly be closed on Sundays. At the end of our stay, Alfie dropped us off at the airport with a parting gift of almond biscuits. If you are looking for a resort-style luxury accommodation, look elsewhere. For amazing value, a gorgeous and strategic location, a taste of local life and a warm and caring host, Alfie's place is hard to beat. Thanks for everything, Alfie, and hope we get a chance to visit again.
Thank you so much for such a great review and a detailed one Indeed. It was absolutely lovely having you and will certainly love to see you again. What matters most to me is that my visitors go back with a relaxing memory and I am so glad Both you and Mum did. Alfie

"Perfect host, wonderful location"
Me and my husband stayed in Alfie's place for 5 nights at the beginning of August. Alfie is more than a perfect host: he picked us up from the airport, showed us the surroundings and even recommended us a couple of restaurants really nice. His wonderful apartment is close to everything: ferry to Valletta, the bus station, really nice restaurants, stores. It is situated 3 minutes by walk to Birgu's center, 20 minutes by ferry to Valletta. The photos are true and we strongly recommend this location!
Thank you for staying at Alfie's place, was lovely having you and a pleasure meeting you. Hope to see you again in the future.
