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 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!
