This is a lovely hotel. It is ideally located for B&B as you can stroll out into Valletta to dine. The staff are friendly and very helpful. They arranged a booking for us at the riding stables at Golden Bay. You can borrow hotel towels for boat excursions. The rooms are spacious & clean. They are tidied every morning &... More

We spent a long weekend at the hotel for the bank holiday. The pre arrangements were smooth and well communicated and we arrived to our transfer, a speedy check in and our pre-ordered champagne. The hotel is an historic style building but the bedrooms are very modern, well appointed, good bathrooms and free wifi. There are also in room safes,... More

Great location at the gate of Valletta. Friendly staff, tidy rooms and excellent breakfast. Great pool, it is a pity that the pool bar closes at around 19:30. Free WiFi works outstanding in the entire hotel.

Although excellent in quality of food, cleanliness & facilities in room and central location for Valletta, I do think that the least the hotel could do is to provide free bottled water in the room especially during exceptionally hot weather, and when the tap water is not drinkable. If I were living in Malta, I think I would be putting... More

This is one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The Staff and very efficient and extremely pleasant. I thought I was going to get a basic single room but I had a double bed in quite a large room. Breakfast was brilliant with everything you could wish for, including a hot food room where the chef would cook... More

A very nice, relaxing hotel. Great location, with friendly, well trained and efficient staff. My room was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, with good view. Bottles of water, replenished each day, were a nice touch as it was very hot while I was there. Breakfast was good - I loved being able to get fresh cooked eggs - and well priced... More

I can only echo the views of all the other comments on here that have praised this hotel. We (a family of four) have just enjoyed a very pleasant week in the Phoenicia. We were on a bed and breakfast package and were delighted with the standard of the breakfasts. The rooms were very comfortable, the atmosphere of the hotel... More

Experience varies, but personally this is the best experience I have had in a hotel. I stayed there in June 2014, with my family (2 young kids). The overall hotel location is great (although quite crowded), the services are top notch, garden beautiful and greatly laid out, rooms are OK (I picked the basic one), clean. The highlight of my...

Lovely hotel with very helpful staff. Situated just outside the main gate to Valletta and opposite the Bus Station, so getting around the island is easy. Our room was very comfortable with air conditioning. The gardens and swimming pool are an additional plus. Well worth paying a little more to stay here.
