We have just returned from a 5 day stay at the Phoenicia and everything was perfect. We were in a deluxe harbour view room overlooking the Triton fountain and harbour. The room was very beautiful, room service and cleaning was fantastic. We enjoyed a number of lovely meals in the restaurant as well as daily breakfast. Service and food was fantastic. We particularly enjoyed visiting the club bar. The two bar staff working on the evening of the England football game were so helpful and looked after us wonderfully during our stay. Everyone at the hotel went out of their way to make our trip fabulous and we can’t wait to return next year. Thank you all

Hotel's Favorite
From our first to last moment at this hotel, every single staff member met us with extreme competence and brilliant smiles. Where else could we feel so at home? As we said to the general manager, money can build beautiful buildings anywhere, but the people working there are what makes the difference. Our room was excellent and well maintained. A walk through the beautiful gardens took us to an infinity pool. Staff quickly found appropriate seatings and arranged towels and umbrellas for each guest. Bar service to the pool was frequent and precise. One could also choose to eat at the pool restaurant which offers the same menu - food choices were innovative and well suited to the hot days of July. Our favourite friendly server was Romen who served with a smile and friendly anecdotes. He made us feel valued. At breakfast, in the dining room, the hostess, Alina, was a friendly and accommodating start to our meal. The breakfast area was usually supervised by Sandra whom we called the Duchess because of her elegance and suave service. Rose was our daily server for coffee and juice and is the most delightful young lady. Bina was also a server who made us feel at home. Food service included absolutely amazing baked goods along with the traditional breakfast fare (and fantastic fresh squeezed orange juice). The breakfast chef, Domenic Zammit, supervised with great attention to details. His skills are clearly superior. Breakfast here was always an anticipated wonderful start to our day. The lounge is a well appointed, pretty meeting spot with excellent bar service, thank you Ivan. One could not enter or leave the hotel without the doormen/porters hurrying to open doors and give a friendly greeting. A German intern and an American boy were exceptional in their roles. During our stay, the hotel offered a complimentary jazz evening in the garden which was a terrific surprise and a wonderful evening. This hotel is a stately building with a prime location. However, the staff is what raises this place to the next level. From the general manager to the concierge, the room attendants to the porters, the spa staff to the front desk, everyone seemed to love their jobs and connecting with the guests. After our seven planned nights, we simply were not ready to leave and this is thanks to how much the wonderful staff of the Phoenicia made us feel at home.

We choose this hotel based on proximity to Valetta and on the reviews which seemed to be pretty good. We were not wrong, a perfect choice from which to explore Malta. The gates of Valetta are less than 5 minutes walk away with busses and ferries to Gozo, 3 cities and Sliema within 10 minutes walk. Taxis are available within minutes. We had a super breakfast each day and some lovely evening meals as well as coffee n scones etc throughout the day. I asked for a quiet room and we got just that with a side view of the Triton fountain. Sandra’s team at breakfast were professional, yet friendly, and we might mention Dominic, Arif and Rose in particular doing a super job. Sunil made the best coffee that we had during our 9 days holiday, a gifted barista! We had our every need tended to by the housekeeping staff, a very pleasant professional team and the Spa team were top notch. I would highly recommended this lovely hotel especially if you want complete comfort while you explore this amazing country☀️

Amazing view from our room on the harbour, garden and fortifications of Valetta. Breakfast and dinner excellent. Restaurant provides a wonderful terrace with a view on the harbour. We tested the inside and outside pool in the garden: just fantastic. Very good location close to the city gate and the central bus station making it rather easy to travel to all corners of the island. So renting a car is not a must. Excellent concierge and driver service making in easy to discover the main sightseeing spots of the island. For those guests loving a combination of historical flair (hotel opened in 1947 with construction started before ww2) and state of the art amenities this hotel perfectly fits. We will come back.

This is a top tier hotel- absolutely amazing. The facilities and amenities make it so that you do not even want to leave the property. The food options on site are excellent and the spa services and facilities are some of the best I've seen. The staff is very friendly, helpful, and attentive. I cannot say enough good things about this hotel.

I first visited The Phonecia as a child 40 years ago and always wanted to revisit but the time was never right for my visits to Malta. On the spur of the moment on a recent visit we decided to visit, even for one night. The hotel is a very classy place, modern with an art deco style. The staff were all wonderful. The gentleman on reception super friendly and helpful made it a delight to interact with him. The food and beverages were top notch. We had a wonderful dinner and a great selection for breakfast. The Phonecia is a perfect place to stay to visit Valletta.

The Phoenicia is just amazing. At first, rooms look a bit like they could use some newer furniture, but quickly you realize this is actually the style of the hotel. Beds super comfortable (weird pillows tho - one extra big, other super small). Everything was very clean, and they were so humble in offering room cleaning two times per day. Breakfast also very, very nice (i. e. you have actual honeycomb with fresh honey, chef making omellet of your choice, fresh fruits, meat, veggies and lots of choice). Restaurant also exceptional. Burger is a must try, stakes as well. Staff all around is on a whole other level than usually in hotels - extremely polite and always at your service for whatever you may need. I could name a hundred things i liked there, and here are the two i did not - pool seemed to have a bit more chlorine, everyone from my team noticed that (some of which are professional swimmers and have been in hundreds of pools), and wifi would stop working once you step out on the balcony. Overall, extremely good experience.

We selected a room in the cheap seats (3rd floor, no balcony) so that we could enjoy 2 weeks at this lovely hotel. What a good decision. The room was well appointed, more than comfortable, spotlessly clean and had a good bathroom. Housekeeping was excellent, unobtrusive and thorough. Little touches were appreciated. The staff have all got an easy and friendly manner, and have the knack of making one feel really genuinly welcome. Food in the Phoenix restaurant is of a very high standard, with a particular nod to whoever makes some of the exquisite desserts. The afternoon tea is well worth indulging in. Breakfast on the terrace in November, what a way to start a day. Robyn runs the hotel in such a way to make the whole place glide swanlike through any event. The hotel is perfectly appointed, convenient and, with its extensive gardens is a tranquil retreat from the hurlyburly of the city. One bonus is that pretty well every bus in Malta terminates outside the hotel, so after a long day touring, its easy to get back to base! It would be incideous to pick out particular staff members as being exceptional, they all were. Thank you for a wonderful stay.
