“Superb!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

This is what a 5 star hotel should be like! Very comfortable and with the most fabulous gardens. Fantastic position just by entrance to Valetta. Marvellous atrium with lovely staff who made us feel very welcome. Thank you Phoenicia for making my visit to Malta so memorable for all the right reasons!

This hotel has a GREAT location! The photo shown of the pool area is exactly as it is! You can walk from the hotel into the old city! Have a coffee
in an outdoor restaurant while people watching! Have lunch and watch little
children play in the square as the water fountains surprise them as it sprays up here and there from the plaza area! Relax, you're in Valletta!

We stayed for 3 nights in November 2012.
The Phoenicia Hotel is an impressive part of Malta history. It is also a main pick-up point for all tours and has a tour desk in the foyer. The public areas are grand and well maintained. Our room was large, clean, comfortable but showing wear like much of the upper floors. The bathroom was large and well supplied. Location is excellent at the bus terminus and the entrance to Valletta where you can walk to restaurants, shops and the many Malta show pieces.

Room Tip: Ask for a room close to the lift or on the first floor.

Stayed three nights on second floor in a charming room overlooking the harbour. Dined in the Pegasus brasserie where we had an excellent meal.
Only fault was on the Friday morning at breakfast the head waitress was unhelpful and unpleasant.

The hotel is beautiful, the personal is lovely. The hotel preserve the charmin of another time..
You fill in the past, with the confort of the present.
The rooms are very confortable. The hotel is located in an excelent place,near the gate of Valetta. There are an excelent tourist office inside the hotel and you can reserve any travel in Malta. In fact they could find the tickets to the Hypogeun, that is hard to find..
We enjoy our stay in Malta and i think that the Pohenicia hotel make its possible

A lovely little hotel in a prime position in the centre of Valletta. Refurbished rooms were small but very nice and the whole atmosphere of the hotel was delightful. Lovely terrace to have breakfast and evening drinks on.

Stayed for 3 nights in November in this lovely hotel.
Room on the 3rd floor, view was mostly of a large car park, but also some of the water- it was very quiet , no noise disturbance. Room itself was spacious and very clean, looked recently refurbished . Bar and breakfast room were lovely. Breakfast was good,with a wide selection of cold and hot dishes, but was included in our room deal - think it was overpriced if you were paying separately for it , might be better finding a cafe in town which is only 5 minutes walk away.
Staff were extremely welcoming and helpful , couldn't fault them.
If being really fussy, would say it needed an indoor pool / spa facilities to make this a 5 star hotel, if you ventured downstairs to explore the garden, the parts of the hotel you walk through look a bit tired , but this didn't affect our stay at all. It is a lovely classical hotel, with none of that bland corporate feel. I would definitely stay here again on a return trip to Malta.

Great location next to the town of Valetta, 5 minutes walk away , also to the bus station- took the bus to Mdina, they were frequent, cheap and easy to use .
