The Phoenicia is one of the oldest but classier hotels in Valletta. It's location near the bus terminus makes it a good base for touring the island. When you get back you can sip an iced cocktail in the wonderful art deco bar. The only down side of the hotel is the long distance of the swimming pool from the... More

A perfectly pleasant hotel in a wonderfully central location. Could do with updating as had a tired look; pool area though attractive. Hotel staff were reasonably friendly but could have been more helpful.

We felt it was about time we came to Malta for the archaeology and the war museums and so chose this hotel based on its rating here. There are several types of 5 star hotel; the chains, the boutiques and the classics. This hotel falls into the latter category. It was like Raffles of Singapore had been brought here. We... More

This was our first visit to Malta and after careful research chose the Phoenicia. We were not disappointed. From the moment that we sent our email booking to the moment we left the hotel we felt cherished. Our arrival conicided with the first of three lectures on Valletta by Mr Zammit which had been organised by the hotel. This was... More

This was our third visit and will not be the last, We came with friends who had never visited Malta but had heard about it. They were not disappointed with what they experienced. We had rooms together on the 4th floor with views overlooking the monument and the cruise ship harbour. The service throughout the hotel was excellent , especially... More

Just had 5 days at the Hotel Phoenicia a 5 star hotel. The room (232) was great with an additional sitting room and 5 balconies. The beds though were not that comfortable and I expected better from a 5 star.The only members of staff who were personable were our room cleaner and a concierge named Simon. The cleaner was particularly... More

I have only seen films about the grandeur of 5 star life in the 1920/30's but now I have at least enjoyed the experience. This is an elegant and perfectly positioned hotel with good staff, great food and a lovely atmosphere. It was the first 5 star in Malta and I would say it certainly deserves to retain that rating.

We'd not been to Malta before but thought a few days in early November would still be warm, but not too hot. Tripadvisor reviews for the Phoenicia looked good value. The hotel is well placed at the entrance to the city where all bus routes terminate and taxis congregate. It's an easy walk to most Valetta tourist sites and the... More

We really loved it at the Phoenician. The rooms, the breakfast, the garden and the views were amazing. But what I found a real treat was the Mediterranean art deco style and design the hotel sustained. The mark of time on the interior can perhaps be conquered but it only adds to the experience. One could feel the reminiscence of... More
