“Excellent” We had a lovely time in Alfie's Place.Alfie was the perfect host he picked us up and gave us a small tour of Birgu, showed us where to get ferry and bus.He had bread, cheese, ham and milk in fridge for us on arrival. The apartment is in a beautiful street close to cafes and transport. The locals were friendly and made us feel welcome. Would highly recommend for an authentic Maltese experience. Thanks Alfie for a wonderful time
“Superb!!!!” What a marvellous winter escape and many thanks for a great holiday!!!!
We were in Malta in January in this superb apartment overlooking one of the most beautiful harbours in the Mediterranean in the picturesque medieval city of Vittoriosa.
The apartment was really spacious and full of natural light, from the large open plan living and seating area you can see the spectacular view, was so nice to have comfortable leather sofas to lounge around after a great day of sightseeing, the apartment was kept really warm by the reverse cycle units in every room and heated towel rails in the large bathrooms.
Attention to details was present all around; comfortable beds, lots of good quality pillows, luxurious quilts in the bedrooms, and even and alarm clock that works.
Very well equipped kitchen, I-pod dock to listen to our favourite music and even a DVD player with a selection of DVD’s, a dedicated area for our laptop and fast WIFI service.
Everything is nearby a short walking distance to cafes and restaurants on the super yacht marina and lovely wine bars and gourmet restaurants all around the cobblestone streets of Vittoriosa.
Don’t miss the Tuesday market just outside the gates and great sea food at any of the cafes on the waterfront.
Booking and service was excellent!!!! We will be back!!!!!!
“An owner that goes above and beyond.” 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.
Alfie's Place was in a great location, near to the market square with a good selection of cafes and small shops. Alfie was extremely helpful and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay. Birgu is steeped in history and is a great place to stay if you want to experience the real Malta.
Thank you Alfie for a lovely holiday. …

Modern 1 Bedroom Maisonette with Sofa Bed
Superb Apartment and Location
Lovely apartment, in a great location with easy access to local restaurants. The apartment was large with everything you require for a comfortable stay, including wifi, lovely views from outside the apartment. Communication with the owner and property manager via email was good. Without a doubt on my next visit to Malta I would try and rebook this apartment. …
Vittoriosa Cosy, Romantic Getaway (Birgu)
A little gem in this beautiful city
This place is simply amazing, not a 5-star resort, but the incredibly great job Patricia managed to do in converting these 3 rooms into a holiday home is amazing!
It's fully equipped, from fridge to electric hot plates, to hair dryer, clothes hanger, iron & board, and a TV with literally THOUSANDS of channels! The place is hundreds of years old, so be prepared to see a little limestone dust here and there but didn't notice this before 2 days had passed; on check-in it was impeccable.
As I explained, it's just 3 rooms, so no where to dance around or do exercise but it really fits the title: cosy and romantic. The the perfect location, just 15m from the main square from where you can choose restaurants for breakfast and take the bus around, or walk to the yacht marina which is 10min away to get the ferry to Valletta. The square also offers shops for everyday necessities, if one needs, as well as pharmacy.
Patricia was so helpful and warm with us, gave us loads of tips of places to visit and restaurants to try. Oh, and this is great: you can actually take the small dining table and chairs outside and be served by the next door restaurant al-fresco! :-) The place's alley turns to an outdoor dining area and you even have little "Reserved" token to put on the table. And we highly suggest D Centre restaurant which is the one touching the property; food is great and they stop serving at 10pm so they make sure that the alley is cleared and quiet for bed time.
If you're looking to spend the holiday indoors, don't book this place. Not because you won't enjoy it, but because you will probably require more "hotel" amenities. This is a little work of art, a piece of Maltese history, a place to shower, prepare a snack, rest a little and back out. But we must say: the bed was super comfortable!
We highly recommend this place for couples! …
Vittoriosa 1 bedroom apartment
Apartment was located perfectly in Birgu, just a short walk from the marina where you can catch the water taxis to Valetta. The apartment had everything we needed, we just weren't quite prepared for the August heat so air con would have been a bonus! Mariella was always quick to respond to any queries and made sure we had an enjoyable stay. Thank you! …
Well what can I say....this is a perfect place to stay in one of the nicest alleys in Birgu which is one of my favourite places in Malta. Alfred is the perfect host and although not needed I know he would have responded immediately if needed. I was picked up from the airport and then taken for a nice glass of wine before arriving at the apartment which was lovely as we had a lovely chat and got to know each other a little. Alfred also sent a lot of information before I arrived about the local walks and history in the area. I would highly recommend anyone to stay at Alfie's...you will not be disappointed!!
Thanks Alfie hopefully see you next year at The Alley! :) …
