5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The Phoenicia has an old world grand colonial style, with a breathtaking circular atrium lounge, beautiful dining room and cosy Club Bar. The large pool and sun deck is set some distance from the hotel through pretty gardens with a friendly poolside bar and terrace. The bedroom was not as grand as the public parts of the hotel, but perfectly... More

Beautiful public rooms and gardens reminiscent of an age gone by. Service was faultless and the gardens are pleasant. The rooms however are tired and small and if you're unlucky (like me) you get a view of the service yard and garbage store. The location is brilliant though, right next to the city gate and a level walk to the... More

The hotel is very well located for Island transport and has a lovely view over the harbour of Valletta. Although the pool is a little way from the hotel it is lovely with a good bar. Breakfast was very good with an excellent selection. Buffets in the evenings nothing special but good quality.

Just had a wonderful experience at the Phoenicia when on a trip to Malta. It is certainly a 5 star hotel, not the 5 star of the new modern hotel, but of elegance of a bygone time. The rooms were really comfortable, clean, and everything that you need for a lovely stay. Breakfast on the terrace wonderful. I did walk... More

Spent a week at this hotel back in March. My husband and I chose it due its 5* rating, unfortunately it wasn't 5*, perhaps 3* if based on the rooms. The hotel itself was in a great position, close to the town and the bus station. Inside the hotel it was very pleasant, not modern, but classic. We were given... More

Yes exactly? From a time when one was respected as a human being, when courtesy was a natural part of everyday life, when one felt a genuine need to make sure that your stay was more than just a financial business arrangement between a guest and hotel. Yes the Phonicia hotel had it in abundance. From the moment we stepped... More

As we had a late night/early morning arrival this year we had requested a twin none smoking room. Arriving after midnight this was delivered, along with excellent check in service, cases taken to the room. Thank you. We had a fortnight of glorious weather at this gem of a hotel. The weather enabled the joy of having breakfast on the... More

Beautiful hotel in Valletta that could not be more central. It was easy to walk everywhere. Staying in this hotel was like being transported back in time. We loved it. We managed to enjoyed the small outdoor pool too.

Good hotel with excellent service. the breakfasts are excellent and the Club bar goes back to Colonial times. Since we last went they have refurbished the pool area and the rooms, however we booked a superior double which should have been in the first or second floor with a balcony. we were given a twin on the third floor then...
