This was our first stay at the Phoenicia, however, it was by no means our first visit to Malta.My firt trip was in 1981, but my parents first came in 1951. We have had many coffee breaks & afternoon teas in the Phoenocia, indeed my parents had their Golden Wedding Party here in 2002. Now at long last my mum...

Our stay at the Phoenicia will always be a memorable one. The hotel was the centre of our holiday and so much more than we expected. The room was light and airy and extremely comfortable with a lovely en-suite. The staff were quietly, helpful and friendly. We had a wonderful afternoon tea and our evenings were spent sipping cocktails while...

We stayed for three nights at the hotel and were impressed with the quality of service. The weather was fairly poor so we spent more time there than we would ordinarily, so the bar and lounge were greatly appreciated. Ate in the Phoenix restaurant on our last night as we had an early flight the next morning but were underwhelmed...

We have just spent 5 nights in the worst weather Malta has to offer in the elegant Phoenicia Hotel. The staff were attentive and friendly, the room extremely comfortable and the breakfast delicious. Dinner, which we only took once in the dining room was adequate. Why can't more lovely hotel's produce evening meals that are better than adequate? Where is...

We stayed a full week at this hotel around New Year's Eve. The food was excellent (we did not miss a single breakfast!). The common rooms were very nice places to stay and the employees are always at your service, whatever you need. They helped us get a very nice restaurant of NYE almost at the very last minute. And...

Stayed at The Phoenicia over New Year and had a wonderful time. The hotel has the old colonial feel but with all the modern amenities. Ideally situated for the centre of Valetta. Also close to the bus station from where you can get a bus to any part of the island - better than driving particularly when it's dark! The...

BUT only a "very good" this time as no remote control for the TV was to be found. Housekeeping need to improve for my "excellent" rating. Otherwise great room overlooking the appoach to Valetta and viwe of the harbor. Superb breakfast, as always. All in all perfect, maybe a few more smiles from the staff would make the hotel the...

I stayed at this hotel in January 2013 and enjoyed it very much. Very comfortable and friendly. The traditional crusty bread at breakfast is delicious. The hotel is extremely well located. Of course the outdoor swimming pool was not in use. Therefore I would have liked a more welcoming and larger fitness centre, possibly with sauna and steam bath.
