We spent 2 nights at the Hotel after a week of sailing around Malta. The location - short walk into the walled City was great. The staff from check, bar, restaurants, concierge etc were simply exceptional. We will go back - away from school holidays next year. Thanks.

First class hotel. Great service everywhere. Beautiful public areas, cool and spacious. Rooms a little on the small side and bathrooms could do with updating (shower over bath with plastic curtain). However beds very comfortable and everything clean. Good pool area away from hotel, in garden. Good location near to bus terminus and centre of old Valetta.

We found the location very good when visiting Valletta. For visiting the other parts of the island you can use the hop on hop off buses which stop just in front of the hotel. The hotel style is old English, which looks good for those who like this. Big sofas and chairs in the lounge. The hotel staff is professional,... More

What the staff lack is the proactivity found in the staff in Spanish hotels. The staff were good at reacting to needs and wishes but not as proactive in ensuring your enjoyment. Breakfast - fresh fruit salad unavailable on most of the mornings. I found the 'cubby-hole' where the hot food was prepared very oppressive. In most five star hotels... More

This is our second time at this hotel and again the service was excellent. It has old fashioned charm and, situated just outside the walls of Valletta, provides a great base for sight-seeing around the island, with the bus station and pick up stop for the open top bus literally outside the door. On the plus side, the hotel seems... More

Just spent a week at the Phoenicia booked through Thompson's & thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Main areas of the hotel are very nice & look the part of a 5 star hotel. Our room was on the 2nd floor over looking Valletta harbour in the distance (we were not bothered by any noise). Although not large the room was adequate... More

Came here for lunch. We ate on a lovely cool terrace. Food and service excellent and very good value. It was a pity for the hotel that there weren't more people to enjoy it but I guess most people don't want lunch while on holiday. Won't be last visit.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday in this lovely hotel. It was our first visit to Malta and we were very impressed by the way we were looked after at the Phoenicia. The hotel has a feeling of elegance and is very suitably located to visit Valletta and the rest of the Island. Previous reviews recommended that... More
