“Excellent accomodation and even better host”
Reviewed 6 September 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 1 August 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!

“I'd buy it if he sold it to me...”
Reviewed 29 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

A wonderful surprise as we opened the front door. A typical Maltese house of character in the historical centre of Birgu. The layout was perfect and the location fantastic. Lovely walks through the winding streets and down by the marina where the super yachts visit.

We had everything we needed including a washing machine in this gorgeous house.
Shops are very close and very inexpensive for your grocery/breakfast needs. There is a bus stop just outside the city gate and several ferries if you rather take the shorter but certainly more breathtaking Grand Harbour views.

Birgu also hosts many historical sites and museums. The Inquisitors Palace is directly across the street. There are also many restaurants in this village each with its character and charm.

Alfred the host was kind enough to pick us up from the Sicily Ferry very late at night and deliver us to this gorgeous temporary home of ours. Never wanted to leave...

I'd definitely recommend and will be returning to The Alley next year.

“A wonderful discovery in historic Vittoriosa”
Reviewed 26 May 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Nothing is too much trouble for our host Alfie from the welcome pack through to more practical requests. The property is a wonderful discovery close to all the amenities including Victory Square which is the hub of the community, museums, the marina, ferry to Valletta, and numerous restaurants. The accommodation is very well equipped with all that you need for a great holiday and as a couple occupying it it could be done all on one level if required.
The thick old stone walls add to the character of the place and keep the inside cool from the temperatures outside which will be even more appreciated as the summer advances. It is highly recommended from our experience and we look forward to returning later in the year.
