Very nice city hotel. Good location - nearby gates to the old city of Valetta. Although in the middle of city it has quiet rooms. It offers free transfer for Golden Bay Beach - so if you tired with city you have an alternative. Friendly, and helpful staff. Lots of hotel services. Hotel is quite old - but it gives... More

The hotel has an excellent location for exploring Valletta and for the whole island as the bus station is just outside. We had a harbour view room with a balcony which was lovely at the end of the day to relax and enjoy. We didn't have the breakfast deal but ate dinner in the restaurants a few evenings which was...

Spent a week here with my Mum at the beginning of July. The hotel is lovely - old style - as it should be. The staff were all wonderful, and went out of their way to give us an enjoyable stay. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was very enjoyable, though we mostly ate out in the evenings. However,... More

Fantastic hotel with incredibly friendly and helpful staff and beautiful grounds and views. The location is brilliant as it is only 5 minutes walk into Valetta. Having the bus stop right outside the hotel was brilliant as for E1.50 a day you can get a return trip to pretty much anywhere on the island. We were lucky enough to be... More

We spent two nights at the Phoenicia hotel and enjoyed our stay there - it is not the first time we have stayed at the hotel. However, the hotel has a split personality, more of this later. First the hotel is very conveniently located just outside the gates to Valletta. This means that it is easy to get to the... More

Lovely hotel in a fantastic location just outside the gates of Valletta - Staff cannot do enough for you - pool is excellent - gardens beautiful - rooms comfortable - not lavish - but you're not really paying lavish prices for the accommodation - already planning next years trip

The Hotel Phoenicia offers all that you need for a city hotel. After a morning investigating the old city of Valetta you can stroll back to the hotel to spend a few hours relaxing around the delightful pool area. The location of the hotel is excellent in that you can walk to great restaurants, gardens, view points and even to... More

it is always a pleasure staying at the Phoenecia. The staff are always friendly and helpful, the location could not be better. Staying at this hotel is a holiday in itself. This is probably one of the best hotels on Malta and can be highly recommended.
