We stayed for a week in this hotel and generally liked it, good location, colonial grand style, rooms refurbished, nice and pool area. It needs refurbishment in some areas and improvements in breakfast service (food was not fresh, lacked choice )

My wife and I have just returned from our second visit to this excellent hotel. We arrived just before midnight, check in couldn't have been easier and we were in our room within ten minutes. There was a problem with the aircon however and a fan was provided until the system was dealt with the following morning. Once the aircon... More

The Phoenicia is a throwback from the Empire. It has lots of character and the staff are friendly and helpful. The location is also excellent just outside the city and close to the bus station. My wife have stayed there several times before and I will definitely be going back.

We had a week here and really enjoyed it. It's very well located, at the start of the main street through Valletta. They're planning on renovating it but we quite liked the old British feel to it. Large quiet dining room. Good service everywhere. Swimming pool overlooking the harbor. It's very close to the bus terminal which was handy for... More

Hotel Phoenicia is a great hotel situated just outside the city wall of Valetta. It is an old building with a lot of ambience. The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The hotel is within walking distance of Valetta with easy access to a lot of great restaurants and places to visit. The room was very good and the bed... More

Our 2nd visit to the phoenicia in twelve months. After considering other hotels in valletta we decided to return to the phoenecia, this time we chose a basic classic room rather than the harbour view. Apart from the view there was little difference, after all We didn't go to malta to look out of the window. The standard of the... More

We spent a long weekend in Valetta, our first visit to Malta. A friend had recommended that we stay in the Hotel Phoenicia as it is so close to the city gates and the bus station; I'm so glad we did stay there. A five star hotel with a five star service. The members of staff we encountered were helpful,... More

This is one of those grande dame hotels that back in its heydey was I'm sure the place to be. And it's still nice--it's just worn. We were upgraded to a suite with five balconies, two of which had water views, but the rugs were stained, the furniture faded, and it had an overall feeling of neglect. That being said,... More

My friend and I spent 7 nights at the Phoenicia Hotel in Valletta, Malta from May 16 to May 23, 2015. It was well located to explore the sites of the capital and for its proximity to the bus station outside the front door. The hotel is convenient and charming with nice bedrooms and an expansive lobby which includes the... More
