“Real taste of Malta”

Reviewed 6 Feb 2017

I spent 4 weeks at the alley to recharge my batteries. It was very relaxing Birgu is a quiet town but has some nice restaurants and bars and the locals are friendly. It is a short walk down to the harbour where you can catch the ferry to Valletta this runs twice an hour and is only 2.8 Euro return. Alternatively there are 3 buses that run to Valletta where the main terminal is. Alfie was very helpful showing me where to catch boats and buses. During my stay I had friends and family come over to stay and Alfie helped with airport runs and making us feel very welcome. Birgu is a nice place to be based with easy access to transport links to explore Malta. But if you fancy staying local there is plenty on offer from walks down to the harbour with nice restaurants cafes aplenty. I would recommend staying at the Alley you get a real feel of Malta and I plan to stay there again. Gary Toombs

Owner's reply: Hi Gary, thanks you for you review and been great getting to know you, your friends and your family. Glad you all like The Alley and Birgu. Wish i could have accommodated you for the extension of your stay. I sure hope to see you again in the future. Alfie

“An owner that goes above and beyond.”

Reviewed 25 Oct 2016

This is a super spot in an historic part of Malta away from the usual tacky tourist areas and steeped in interesting spots to peruse with lovely local people who are both helpful and kind. We used the excellent public bus service to travel the island and to see more - very easy and inexpensive. The house has lots of character and Alfie simply could not be more accommodating or helpful. We would definitely return one day and would recommend to friends. The only reason the rating wasn't a five out of five is that the place does really need a 'deep clean' which I'm sure Alfie has in hand.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your Comments and was a pleasure having you here. Glad you enjoyed your stay and would love to see you back. I have checked the place before your check in and look clean and tidy but I will take your comments on board and keep an eye on it. Alfie

“Can I give 10*”

Reviewed 7 Nov 2015

This is our second stay at a property belonging to Alfie having spent our first holiday in Malta last year at Alfie's Place. Right from the moment of booking this break we were treated as friends and correspondence was treated efficiently. We were collected by our host from Luga Airport and taken to a local hostilary in Birgu where we enjoyed a welcoming drink before being taken to our 'home' for the week. As Alfie opened the front door we were blown away by the beauty and character of this property. Enormous amounts of space greeted us in the living room, followed on to the kitchen which is well laid out and has room to sit, then on to the beautiful bedroom with an adjoining bathroom. The tour continued upstairs to the second bedroom and bathroom and then on up again to a beautiful roof terrace. First impressions were memorable but as we had arrived late in the evening and were tired we decided further exploration could wait. After a nights sleep we woke to find a lovely welcome pack in the fridge, consisting of bread, butter, milk, cheese and ham as well as tea, coffee, sugar and fresh fruit on the table so that was breakfast sorted. The house itself has been unspoilt by over modernisation retaining many of the original features including the vaulted ceilings and open stonework walls ... the pictures don't do justice the wonderful atmosphere that is in this beautiful property. If I were to complain of anything it would be that the bed linen was a little too warm for our liking. If it says anything at all, we have already told Alfie we wish to visit again next year. A great host, available in case of need and only a phonecall away, for who nothing is too much trouble. We will tell family and friends of our beautiful find ... PERFECT!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much for such a fantastic write up but at the end my reward is your satisfaction. it was great seeing you again and no doubt will be delighted to see you more in the future. I am sorry the Bed sheets where a bit too warm for you, I just swapped from summer to Winter sheets on advise of Two Ladies :) :) could have got you some Summer Ones. Ones again was lovely seeing you again, thank for your write up and look forward to see you again. Alfie

“great place”

Reviewed 8 Sep 2015

Our holiday in Birgu, at The Alley, was excellent. The apartament was very nice, located near to shops, bars, pharmacy (affordable prices). The owner is the best host that we have had (very helpful). It is the perfect place to stay if you want to feel the matese culture and to meet the real people from Birgu. I recommend you to stay at Alfie's if you want an authentic maltese holiday!

Owner's reply: Thank you so much, It was a pleasure having your young family over, certainly hope to see you again in future.

“Rustic and Great!”

Reviewed 7 Jul 2015

Staying at The Alley was a really good experience! Alfie is a great service oriented social guy, and provided all we needed to have a marvellous trip in Malta, from long range transportation advice to shortcuts in the local area. The apartment is cozy and felt like a new home after a few days. I would definitely recommend it :)

Owner's reply: Thank for your feedback and really appreciate your comments, It was lovely having you there, Three Young and VERY happy Norwegians :). Also a Big Thanks for leaving the property spotless. Hope to see you again in the future. Alfie
