The Phoenicia Malta

TripAdvisor Review
Malta and Gozo, Europe
Valletta

The finest hotels around the world – like the The Phoenicia Malta near Valetta – have all earned their reputation over time. Indeed, the Phoenicia Hotel tends to make such an impression on its guests that they keep coming back.

As soon as you arrive at the impressive entranceway with its pillared entrance and portico, you'll see just how special the Phoenicia Hotel is. Absolutely in keeping with the traditional grandeur of the capital city, Valetta, it is a wonderful venue from which to really come to appreciate the very best that Malta has to offer.

Five-star style and luxurious living at Valetta's The Phoenicia:

The Phoenicia Malta's 1920's design aesthetic is a welcome breath of fresh air – richly and comfortably furnished and full of beautiful details. It's grand but very accessible – the thickly upholstered plush chairs are there to be sat on, for example.

Working in such a grand interior, the Phoenicia Malta staff have to work hard to ensure that the service they offer matches up. That the level of service here is consistently impeccable is a testament to them – and a big factor in bringing so many people back here year after year.

The large, air-conditioned rooms (both twin and double) are comfortably appointed and feature cable TV, radio, telephone, safe and minibar. Gorgeous harbour view rooms are also available, at a supplement. Whichever room you choose, you'll relish its cool, spacious, tranquil feel – the perfect place to unwind at the end of every day.

As one would expect of a hotel of this stature, the amenities are similarly excellent. There are beautiful swimming pools, there are wonderful choices to be made in the hotel's two à la carte restaurants; there is even a hotel jewellery shop. (And of course, there's an excellent gym.) To top it all off, the Phoenicia Hotel is set in seven acres of landscaped gardens.

The happy combination of its distinctive design and exceptional service means that the Phoenicia Malta richly deserves every one of its five stars. That it's a convenient gateway for Valetta almost makes you wish you could give it a sixth star!

Perfect location

Review by sr0511 Sydney, Australia

Perfect location, the facilities of the hotel have everything you need. The breakfast menu was delicious and the produce was fresh. The covid safety measures implemented were very good and you felt comfortable throughout...

Only dropped a star as the room was on the smaller side and the water pressure in the shower wasn't great.

Old grand hotel with great tradition

Review by IsaBellaOnTour Eltville am Rhein, Germany

Nothing to complain about, other than the very small double rooms in the cheapest room category, which sort of comes with a building that age. So, it is well worth while investing in an upgrade. Service is impeccable, there is even a shoeshine service...

DO NOT MISS breakfast. It is excellent, including freshly squeezed grapefruit juice. Cocktails are delicious and so is the house chocolate cake. Be careful, however: If you eat the cake, you better cancel dinner. :-)

Easy and well situated

Review by PiJa6 Switzerland

Ideally situated at the entrance of Valetta old town, 12 minute drive from the airport, car rentals, buses (and taxis careful about the rates) at the doorstep. The indoor pool (+ fitness and spa) is lovely to have incase of poor weather in winter or after a day of visits. Travelling as a family, we had connecting rooms allowing both space and privacy, but also nice views from both rooms...

Prices are high, but there are often special offers on their website, cancellation policies due to Covid are appreciable, and our minibar (no alcohol) was complementary.

First class all the way

Review by maggiegm cambridgeshire

From the moment of arrival everything was first class, facilitates, room, bed, staff, location, just totally perfect. Valletta is stunning and so interesting but when you walk back into the hotel it is so quiet and gentle that it does not feel like you are in the middle of the capital city.
