The finest hotels around the world – like the Phoenicia Hotel 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.
The Phoenicia Hotel'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 Hotel 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 Hotel 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!

Reception were particularly helpful and moved us to a room with a balcony as soon as one was available.
Superb hotel although we ate out each day as we did our own tours. Holiday instructions very helpful will go again to Malta.
This is a beautiful building with excellent amenities and attentive staff. It is particularly well located at the gateway to the old city and in close proximity to the main bus station.
Lovely recently renovated hotel. This was our 4th visit. Exceptionally helpful and friendly staff.
first class hotel in very convenient position
Could not be bettered for service and location.
What a fabulous holiday, we were celebrating our 30th Wedding Anniversay. On arrival we were upgraded to an executive suite, we had a cake and bubbly supplied. The Hotel was fantastic and the location couldn't have been better. We are thinking of returning next year we enjoyed it so much. On our last day we had to leave at 5pm and were given a packed breakfast, with sandwiches, pastries, marmalade and jam and fruit, just perfect.
This recently upgraded hotel is a joy to visit. It is beautiful. Facilities are exceptional and all staff very friendly and helpful. it was great to use the infinity pool in the afternoon when temperatures rose to about 36 degrees. Air con in the room was very efficient and welcome. Beds very comfortable and bathroom had every extra you could want. The hotel location is perfect, within easy walking distance of the old city and bus terminus.
An excellent hotel ideally situated for walking into Valletta and using the local bus service to visit the rest of the island.
My wife and I have stayed at the Phoenicia 5 times in the last 4 years and will be back in 2016 after the renovation work which will be completed by April.
Staff are efficient and friendly and welcome us as though we are part of a large family.
Facilities are as one would expect in a 5* hotel.
An excellent hotel where my wife and I have stayed at this time of the year for the last few years. Staff are unbelievably friendly and rooms are well furnished with air-conditioning, tea/coffee facilities, mini bar, wifi, safe and bathrooms (with bath) with lots of very hot water night and day. The hotel is ideally situated with Malta's historic capital Valletta and island's main bus station only a couple of minutes away.
Caring and polite staff and charming service
