4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We chose this hotel for a week long stay because of its good facilities and central location near the gates of historic Valletta. Inside, it has a comfortable and airy feel with a rather old world atmosphere which may not be to everyone's taste. Our room was perfectly adequate and the buffet breakfasts were pretty reasonable although we did find... More

We organised a celebration dinner for my parents' 60th wedding anniversary as they had their wedding reception at the Phoenicia in 1955. We managed to get a copy of the wedding menu 3 days before the day and the Phoenicia reproduced the whole menu, typed it out in the same font and even managed to find the same crockery that... More

One of the greatest hotel buildings i have encountered during my travels. I cannot remember how many photos i took of the building! Inside is also great with very friendly staff an a great harbor view at the room. I would like to see a better food quality in the in-room dining but in total i would definitely recommend Phoenicia... More

A very decent hotel. We paid a little extra for the newly refurbished high level executive harbour view rooms. The rooms was adequately sized and with a large , comfortable bed and lovely views over the harbour, being on the third floor. The staff were courteous and well trained. Breakfasts were superb - although at a certain cost. It was... More

If you are seeking authentic Art Deco, with an unmistakably British flavour, the Phoenicia has to be the first choice. Host to endless Royals over the ages, with heaps of fascinating photographic history, the rooms, foyer, restaurants and bars ooze the native charm from that fin de siecle period. Palm Court ensembles play, the tea dancers strut their stuff, and... More

The hotel is briliantly located just outside the City Gate in Valletta and next to the bus station, so that you can easily walk into the city or catch a bus to any part of the island. The staff were really welcoming and friendly and our room - while perhaps in need of a little updating - was a very... More

He also gave us many helpful recommendations. Hotel restaurant also caters very well for special dietary needs( Gluten and dairy free) providing goat's butter and almond... More

My husband and I spent a week here at the end of March and had a wonderful stay. The staff were extremely helpful and efficient but not intrusive. We had dinner in the Peagasus Brasserie on a couple of nights and the food was delicious. Our room was very comfortable and very clean. The hotel is in a great location... More

This is a lovely hotel with old fashioned elegance - it felt very grown up and with a relaxed charm surrounded by gardens unlike a lot of hotels on the island that are crammed into their positions. The hotel is positioned wonderfully for visiting Valletta and for catching buses to other parts of the island. It has a nice lobby... More

A truly wonderful hotel, perfect location, walking distance to the heart of the city. Beautiful interior and grounds, very clean and comfortable rooms. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. We would return to the Phoenicia on any visit to Malta.
