We got a room in the new renovated building. It was a very nice room! The only problem we had that there wasn't a minibar (we needed this for our medication and we didn't wanted to store it in the mutual fridge). We mentioned it at the check-in and went for a walk. When we got back, I found a...

Good place with the maltese spirit, away from the crowded tourist zone. Easy access to public transportation, walking distance from Vittoriosa. Very good and friendly staff who want to help you to enjoy your stay and visit activities.

We enjoyed this little harbor area. If you don't have trouble with an average walk, then the distance is manageable to walk to restaurants and historic buildings. If you have foot/knee/heart problems, it might be too much for you to walk to the interesting stuff. Very picturesque. Hotel staff were wonderful. Wifi was good. Ask for a room that faces...

If you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Malta with good value for money, Villa Del Porto is the place.. Rooms overlooking the dock and the fortification walls with a classic continental breakfast.. Ideal for people with cars (you just park in front of the hostel main entrance..)

I used oother reviews when booking this property. We usually like to be a bit out of the town and as we had a car, we thought we'd be better off outside Valletta because of parking issues. Positives first: we had a room on the second floor which had a lovely view of the marina and fortifications of Birgu. Bed...

I stayed here for ten days the spring of 2015. I had rather hoped for the sort of B&B where folks from different countries get together for breakfast and talk story. And I hope for nice rooms. Alas! Breakfast was mediocre and the rooms, though clean, could have used some work. Chipped tiles, bare light bulbs, etc. And although the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Indulge yourself at our newly opened Boutique Guesthouse. With us, you will enjoy the tradition, history and stories of the village of Kalkara. Kalkara is a fishing village in the south of Malta forming part of the picturesque Grand Harbour. Villa del Porto is situated overlooking Kalkara Port, offering genuine warm comfort in truly historic surroundings. The property was first built over 100 years ago and has recently been restored. Villa Del Porto is a relaxing retreat in the heart of Malta easily accessible to all major attractions. All rooms are equipped with all present commodities including cooling and heating air conditioning, mini bar, in-room digital safe, hair drying facility, LCD cable TV, private bath or shower and laundry service. Whilst enjoying ample public car park space, when staying at Villa del Porto, one can hire a car and discover all hidden treasures of the Maltese Islands at leisure. However, for those who would opt for a tour by public bus, the stop is just 50 metres away. Sandy beach, Pharmacy, Bank, Historic sites, Museums, and tennis courts are also situated close by. Cross the Grand Harbour on the traditional Maltese boat and discover Valletta - Malta's Capital City and Unesco's World Heritage Site. Over here one must visit the famous St. John's Cathedral and other places of interest. Valletta is also popular for designer shops and cafes. And for those who would like to enjoy a relaxing holiday, a stroll on the Kalkara Promenade and Vittoriosa Waterfront whilst enjoying a choice of top restaurants, bars and a Casino is definitely not worth a miss. ... more   less
