My husband and I just spent the Easter holiday here and enjoyed every minute of it. The hotel could use a little sprucing up but we got a good deal on the room, the concierge was most helpful and friendly, the staff generally friendly, the breakfast was very good and the dinner was fantastic and better than in Valletta. Our room was on the street side (with a little side view of the harbor) and was a bit noisy until the evening but we managed. We were gone all day until evening so really not a problem. Beautiful gardens and pool area. We checked out the Le Meridian at St. Julians and, hands down, thought this hotel in Valletta was much better particularly the location but also the property. St. Julians area is not that great - lots of decrepid looking buildings (and I don't mean the charming old ones) or they were modern and cold looking, non-descript hotels. This one has retained its old-world charm and it looks like it belongs in Malta. We are discerning travelers who have traveled all over the world and have stayed in very nice places. Le Meridien in Valleta suited us very well. We loved Malta and its wonderful history and people and hope to come back one day.

This hotel is fabulous if you want style and service par excellence. We have stayed there five times in total, the last time being October 05 - for the second time that year.

The staff remember not only our faces but our favoured drinks in the bar. The food is fantastic - what more could you ask than an omelette cooked to order in front of you for breakfast and a glass of Bucks' Fizz if you fancy it?

The gardens and pool area are gorgeous. Sadly we won't be going for our usual ten days this April but nothing will stop us from getting our Pheonica fix in October.

The Le Meridien Phoenica would get an even lower rating if it wasn't one of the worlds cheaper 5* star hotels thus isn't that bad on value for money. Situated just outside the city walls by the bus station it is very convenient for me but with efficient bus services perhaps there are other contenders, taxis are often a rip off - beware. Maltese people are caring, honest and helpful to visitors, except when employed in service industry such as hotel, restaurant etc! Meridien has achieved the gaol of hot breakfasts since my last stay 4 years ago. Food still awful, service absent to minus. Surroundings glorious , stay there for the elegance alone. Rooms can echoe with no carpets and clanging doors and keys but generally genteel guests. Could have done with slippers on cold marble floor but otherwise room equipped ok, no TV instructions though. Sack all the staff and management, bring in proper international standard food and it would be world class! French ownership a recipe for cheapskates
and lousy service anywhere but for romantics its the best in Malta, you only have a 5 min walk with lots of eating choices and in summer you have nice garden area and pool.

Staying at the Phoenicia is like stepping back into the better parts of British colonial splendor. It was the epitome of modern convenience when it opened just after the second World War. While modernity has moved on, the Phonecia is still splendidly marble-clad and impeccably staffed. Concierge service in the tradition of the best hotels of sixty years ago.

And the gardens beggar belief.
