This hotel is fantastic, perfectly located (just before entering the city walls), spacious rooms, splendid views. The staff is really friendly and will do anything they can do to accomodate you. There's really nothing bad to say about this hotel. However, please note that the room rate was incorrect when doing the check-in. They have fixed it on the check-out...

Just had a great time staying at the Phoenicia (8/6-11/6) This is a unique hotel. Unique because yes it's old, yes it doesn't haven't wi-fi in every room, yes some parts of the hotel are past its best but this is why it's unique. We arrived by hotel arranged cab from the airport, you pull up in front of the...

This is a five star hotel whose service is second to none. It is a beautiful artdeco hotel set in the capital city of Valletta. The food was wonderfull and service was wonderful. The bus services around Malta were brillant as you could buy a day ticket and just jump on and off the buses all day.

Located within the beautiful walled city of Valletta (Floriana), this is an elegant hotel with plenty of Art Deco influence. It's an impressive hotel located high enough to be seen from a good distance away (helpful when you're driving into Valletta to find it!). Although it's in a prominent postition, the walk from the hotel into the heart of the...

We spent 10 nights here for our honeymoon in May 2012 and had a wonderful experience. The hotel itself is beautiful, the communal areas such as the lounge and restaurant and bar have an art deco feel to them and are well maintained. Our room on the 3rd floor had a lovely view of the harbour and a very comfy...

We have just returned from our second visit to The Phoenicia and no doubt we will return as it is the most relaxing hotel that we have ever stayed in. The location is excellent being situated just across the road from the new bus station where you can catch buses to anywhere on Malta and just outside the City Gate...

Lets start with the positive...location good, staff friendly with the exception of a couple. Complaints are dealt with quickly albeit faulty towers style! Some areas of the hotel are beautiful. The accommodation is generally expensive for what you get. We had a room with a balcony to begin with. The balcony looked over the bus station and hotel car-park with...

My husband and I stayed here for a week and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The hotel is ideally placed for walking around Valletta and exploring the island by bus. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were really good value. We would stay again without hesitation.
