Classic hotel just outside Valletta main gate. Public areas are magnificent. Rooms are generally small but comfortable. The people who designed the hotel's renovation did a wonderful job. Breakfast...

review Great hotel, great staff, great gardens and a great location.
Great hotel, great staff, great gardens and a great location.
Just refurbished. Superior double room was clean, quiet and comfortable (decent mattress!) if a tad small but bathroom large - I think they'd removed an old bidet. Great view of Floriana to L-Imdina...

Still the Grand Lady.
It has been 20+ years since my last visit, much to my own disbelief! In planning our Malta trip I really only considered this one hotel as my memories of it were so positive. Well, it does not...

Lovely hotel. Friendly staff. Heated outdoor pool lovely and warm in early December.
Excellent location right on the edge of Valletta.

Old fashioned charm & elegance in a gorgeous hotel. Excellent food, WiFi connections & selection of single malt whisky. Location is ideal next to Valletta city gate & the bus terminus.
17.09.2017 Chris
Lovely hotel. Very friendly and attentive staff. Very near entrance to city. Great views, gardens and pool area. Can't give it more stars as renovations not quite finished and local area one large building site as they restore it.

The lounge bar is good place for a relaxing drink away from the hustle and bustle of Valletta, but what have they done to the lovely circular bar?! There used to be a beautiful cocktail bar in the centre of the lounge which was a very stylish focal point. Now there's only a small side bar. Not at all sure about the new decor either. Such a shame. The drinks are excellent, as always, though.
 Not bad

Love it!
Not really suitable for kids as there are limited options, but more fore couples who want a kid-free getaway or business people. Lovely infinity pool, spa is coming shortly. If you are looking for a mature environment in the very heart of Malta, with personal service second to none, this place is for you.

Hotel Phoenicia is a wonderful and just restructured hotel in La Valletta City centre.
Well coming atmosphere, environment elegant and fresh, professional and kind Staff are the major characteristic.
Particular mention has to be given to the Garden and the Infinity pool. Rooms are luminous and clean.
Thank you for the service provided.

I have been to Phoenicia, many years ago and I can not forget the atmosphere,the style and understated elegance
19.10.2015 Dave
Well located with friendly helpful staff. The breakfast is excellent and sets you up nicely for the day. The hotel is slightly dated and definitely an old part of the British Empire. This is not a fault but a benefit. My wife and I have been there a couple of times before and will certainly be returning in the near future.

very good address, close to the city centre from the slope to climb a little rugged, the food and the service is perfect
The Phoenicia Breakfast Buffet here is simply amazing, so make sure you wake up early to enjoy the scrumptious selections offered.

A hotel with a personality with very very picturesque gardens. Walking distance to Valetta central. The adjacent bus-station does get noisy tho'!
