We stayed here in August 2014 in adjoining rooms with our two daughters one of whom is in a wheelchair. From the moment we arrived the staff made us feel so welcome and attended to our every need, even anticipating our needs and suggesting things they could do to make our stay even better. The front desk staff were very... More

My husband and I stayed for a week at the Phoenicia and cannot fault it. The hotel has old world charm emanating from its 1920s design and provides a cool, tranquil space right in the heart (almost) of Valetta. The staff were, without exception, wonderful - friendly, helpful and efficient. The food was great and the breakfasts magnificent! We have... More

We were able to book a room at short notice in the peak holiday season. The reception staff was friendly and efficient, the service staff unobtrusive. The room was acceptable for this class of hotel. The major plus of this hotel is, however, its location. Away from the tourist bustle of Sliema, yet only a few minutes' ferry ride away.... More

We had our wedding reception at The Phoenicia in July 2014, it was the most wonderful experience I've had. The hotel is beautiful, food amazing and hotel staff out of this world. The rooms are elegant and the pool area private and quiet. I really did not want to leave and can't wait to return for our anniversary next year... More

In the heat of the day we went for a drink in the bar and were served a wonderful glass of Pimms that was amazing. The decor was fantastic, very 1920's. The staff were friendly, kind and very professional. We were so impressed that we are going to book a room on our next visit.

My wife and I spent five nights here at the end of a month long trip to Europe. The old world charm of the hotel combined with excellent service and wonderful restaurants made this a memorable stay. We dined at all three restaurants. The price for three courses plus wine for two people was about 90-100 euros per meal. Given... More

The pool is beautiful, with plenty of lounges and shade if you would prefer. The breakfast was fantastic with lots of variety and choice, and the ambiance of the breakfast area was... More

The Phoenicia brings a traditional admosphere for a great stay in a beautifull environment like Malta. Phoenicia provides a very good service in comfortable building. The rooms good use an upgrade with respect to space. Phoenicia is ideally situated so close to the center of Valletta, the bus station and the great restaurants at Waterfront.
