My husband and I have just returned after a relaxing week in the Phoenicia. The staff are always so welcoming and helpful. We enjoyed half board, each night the meal was superb especially the rib eye steak and chocolate fondant are to die for. This hotel is well situated for the bus station and the centre of Valletta.

The Phoenicia is an exceptional hotel with excellent service and quality. It mixes attentiveness with privacy and calm service. We will be back. Highlights are the Club Bar, Afternoon tea and the Pegasus Restaurant.

We spent two weeks at the Hotel Phoenicia at the beginning of May. We received a very warm welcome on our arrival and our room on the 4th floor was spacious and clean, with great views over the harbour. All the staff were friendly and polite. Service at the bar and restaurant were both good. The afternoon tea was a... More

We stayed elsewhere but had heard about the Phoenicia's afternoon tea back in UK. We decided to "lift" the last couple of hours before flying home by booking afternoon tea in lovely comfortable surroundings being pampered by attentive, friendly staff. The cake stand was a bit battered but the sandwiches, cake, scones and cream and fancies were excellent. Unlike Brown's... More

We loved this traditional hotel. Perfectly situated for exploring Valletta. Our 4th floor room was comfortable with good views. The staff are friendly & most obliging. The menus are varied & the food is good. The gardens & pool area are very pleasant to relax in after a busy day sightseeing. Not a hotel for those wishing for a lively... More

This was our first visit to Malta and to the Hotel Phoenicia and I have to say it was a very enjoyable experience. The public areas of the hotel are just beautiful and walking into the art deco grandeur of the Palm Lounge made me feel like I was in an Agatha Christie novel! The service is extremely courteous and... More

I very special, sumptuous hotel with exceptionally friendly and efficient staff. It's a fantastic location to explore Valetta and to get buses anywhere in Malta. Would definitely stay there again if we go back to Malta.

Excellent hotel, right in to Valetta, right next to the main bus station, BUT its triple glazed so nice quiet rooms. We arrived to a complementary cocktail party - not sure how often they do them. Beautiful old place, good wifi, lovely pool - bit of a walk through the grounds to it. Nice, cozy cocktail bar. We didn't have... More

We spent a week at this hotel which is in a brilliant location for buses or just walking into Valletta which the Main Street is just a short walk. Our room was nice but we were on the first floor and over looked the roof. We did not have a package for food and was offered breakfast for what worked... More
