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.

Nice, centrally located hotel to Valetta. 2 minute walk to the city gate. Facilities nice, pool and gardens great. Views from room could be better but not much can be done about that. Food OK and staff professional and friendly.

My wife adored this hotel. This was a great trip and this hotel really ensured we had a great time. It was definitely up to American standards. Sorry if that offends anyone, but that's how I view things.

The Phoenicia is looking a bit tired & neglected these days - we had room 208 in which the post-colonial rattan furniture which looked so fresh 10 or 15 years ago needs replacing. The ornamental metal balcony railing is rusting away as the sun beats down on that side. As a result the room was like a furnace on arrival... More

We have just returned from this hotel and we had a great stay, reviews are all correct. We had room 229 which was on the side with a harbour/ town view and it was lovely. Beds are comfy and it was spotless. We only ate in the hotel once which was the buffet meal which was excellent, hot and tasty... More

We have stayed at the Phoenica Hotel annually for a considerable number of years.

Beautiful older genteel hotel. Wonderful location. Within walking distance to old city. One can hear the music from the hotel. We took the hop on, hop off bus which stopped right in front of the hotel.

The top two floors are the 'modernised' floors, the rooms with hideous windows. The view is fine but these are not French windows so you have to be standing up to look out, no sitting to admire the view. Sadly, window frames are slide, meaning you can only open one side: this doesn't amount to any view you will remember.... More
