“Ideal place for a stay in Malta”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This was our first trip to Malta and we stayed here for four nights. The hotel is excellently located, close to the central bus station, from where you can go to all sights in Malta, and quiet at the same time. The hotel building is very beautiful, with an exceptionally elegant and relaxed atmosphere, and a huge and comfortable lobby and dining hall in the classical old English style. All the staff were very friendly and helped us in all respects. Our room was very nice and well heated (which we enjoyed in the rather cold and windy season at the beginning of February) and the breakfast offered a huge choice of delicious dishes. On the whole a very good price-performance ratio !

Stayed here for a week. Cannot fault this place.

We chose half board and this worked out amazing value. The restaurant was superb. Champagne breakfasts, excellent service, wonderful evening meals. Even the Valentines 5 course meal was included in the half board deal (normally £75 per person).

Beautiful large room. Wonderful location.

Cannot recomment this place highly enough.

This was our first visit to Malta and we were joining old friends who live in France. They chose the hotel and we were very happy with their choice. This lovely old building is spacious, with grand reception rooms and wonderful position for seeing the sights. The staff were friendly and helpful, several telling us that they had worked there for many years - a good sign of a happy ship. We will return.

Room Tip: ask for a room away from the road.

We stayed at the Phoenicia for 5 nights over a rather wet and cold February week-end and simply could not have been better looked after. Absolutely marvellous service from impeccably trained staff who were also some of the friendliest and most welcoming I can remember anywhere. The hotel is traditional but also perfectly relaxed. Our classic room was good value at the low season rates and both restaurants were excellent and excellent value. Of course it's an old-style building with the inevitable need for ongoing maintenance, rather than some brand new concrete and glass monstrosity, but that's part of its huge charm. And it is perfectly positioned for sight-seeing in what is a quite fantastic destination for history, art and archaeology. We would love to go back.

Room Tip: Try to get a deal on a room with a harbour view.

This majestic hotel sits atop the Mediterranean with breathtaking views. Rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable bedding and pleasing decor. It is conveniently located next to the bus terminal which is a common mode of transport around the island, but, believe me, this is not your typical bus depot hotel. Additionally, it is an easy walk into the heart of town. Staff are exceedingly helpful, even responding to an e-mail that I sent ahead of my trip when it was their day off. They can assist you in securing precious tickets to Hypogeum as well as providing recommendations and making other arrangements for your visit. I was here during Carnival and it was a prime location for watching the action, especially since the dance competitions took place just across the street.

Room Tip: Splurge on a Deluxe Ocean View room.

Hotel Phoenicia is fabulous place to stay for a Winter break. The hotel is walking distance from many of the islands historical treasures.

The hotel's staff are excellent , the food is splendid and the island's wines are a treasure to be discovered.

My wife and I have been coming to Malta since 1969, initially for our annual holidays and more recently for day visits on cruise ships when we've always visited the Phoenicia for morning coffee.
For the last two years we've stayed at the Phoenicia for a week at the end of January in a room on the 1st floor.
The rooms are spacious with an efficient heating/air conditioning system and have a mini bar, coffee/tea making facilities, a safe and plenty of wardrobe space.
The hotel has an excellent restaurant for dinner and breakfast and a large lounge with ample seating. Afternoon tea is served in the lounge. Free internet access is also available.
The staff at the hotel give a top class service, nothing is too much trouble..
The hotel is ideally situated a couple of minutes from the gates of Valletta and the main bus station, where a frequent bus service to everywhere on the island is available from early morning until late evening.
Next year we hope to be returning for two weeks at about the end of January.

Room Tip: If you are a non-smoker ask for a non-smoking room. Our room overlooked the front of the hotel but w...
