"City break"
Although a lovely building with great presence the hotel furnishings and some of the rooms are well worn and due an update. Great location but hardly four star.

"Like the Grand Old lady of Valletta"
Very friendly and helpfull staff, good food and service in the restaurants. We asked for a non alcoholic cocktail in the "cocktail" bar and we might as well been speaking Martian. The chairs in the lounge and in the main dining room are looking quite threadbare but I understand that there is a gradual refurbishment going on so maybe they will be upgraded soon. Overall an enjoyable stay.

"What a delightful hotel."
The reception, concierge and dining room staff were so attentive, so helpful, made our holiday a 'real' holiday. The gardens and swimming pool must rate among the best in the Mediterranean. Situated at the gate into Valletta means so much of interest is literally on the doorstep. The buses are across the square going all over the island. The hop-on, hop-off buses collect you from the front door of the hotel. It is truly a lovely hotel, maybe not for families with very young children, but for the mature traveler it is truly the best. The food was also excellent, of the two restaurants, maybe the Pegasus had the edge. Finally, it was fun - a drink, snack, or just a coffee by the pool, in the evening a cocktail before dinner - so very civilized. I will definitely revisiting the Phoenicia. If you can get a room with a balcony facing the sea - fabulous.

"Wonderful old hotel and great gardens"
Reminds of the Nacional in Havana - but whereas the Cuban hotel has been forced into disrepair, the Phoenicia is beautifully maintained. And while the Nacional Internet costs a packet to use and crawls at dial-up speed, the Malta hotel has excellent WiFi. The gardens are huge and wonderfully kept, and swimming pool has lovely view. Excellent buffer breakfast with all eggs fresh cooked. Very central for Valetta eats and things to do, and right by the bus station. I can't wait to return

"Very comfortable hotel close to town centre"
Spent a lovely 5 days at the Phoenicia. The hotel is within a few minutes walk of the town and yet is quiet and peaceful. The staff are very friendly and helpful especially the Concierge (Simon). He booked tickets for theatre, restaurants and the Hypogeum and gave us several recommendations. He even found an I phone 5 charger for my daughter's phone. Nothing was too much trouble for him. Only criticism is that the public areas were cold, particularly the dining room. Restaurant staff were very good about providing items for special dietary needs.( Gluten and dairy free)

We stayed for 4 nights at the Phoenicia due mainly to the excellent reviews of previous visitors. We were not disappointed, and we could not have picked a better hotel or a better location. First class service in every respect, from the room and the breakfast to the prompt way the staff assisted when my wife was not feeling well.

"Friendly staff, great location"
We stayed for 2 nights in a 'deluxe harbour view' room. All staff we encountered were extremely polite, helpful and friendly. The room was nicely decorated, clean and the bed very comfortable. Our bathroom was spotlessly clean but perhaps a little tired looking...and cold! The hotel is well situated for the bus terminal...literally next door....and the town centre is a short walk away. The breakfast buffet was included in our room rate. There was a good selection of hot and cold food. It was all fresh and well made. There was plenty for everyone! We ate in the main restaurant...the food was good quality with a few nice veggie options. Not overpriced and the staff were very attentive without being overbearing. our stay was very tranquil and pleasant. No problems with noise...we assumed the hotel was not very busy it was so quiet. The dining room was pretty full at breakfast so obviously busier than we thought! We were very impressed and look forward to a return visit hopefully for a longer stay next time!

"Great neighbourhood, so-so hotel"
The staff were pleasant, but the hotel is nowhere near 5 star. The room was small and basic - providing instant coffee in a 5-star hotel is not what I expect. The location is great though, being three minutes' walk to shops, cafes, restaurants and sightseeing, or 10 minutes down to the water. Also, the bus station is right outside the hotel so you can easily catch a bus to anywhere on the island.

We had a wonderful time in Malta - Valletta is the place to stay - such an interesting town with so much to see and do - the hotel is ideally situated just by the bus terminal and you can travel on the buses very cheaply all over the island - on two days during our stay in February we were able to sunbathe in their lovely garden

"Superb hotel"
Hotel Phoenicia was a lucky choice for our first visit to Malta. Ideally positioned to walk into Valetta, and easy to get to everywhere by car. Bus station would have been possible too as just beside the hotel. The Hotel oozed colonial charm especially The Club bar where the service was impeccable. We chose the Pegasus restaurant for main meals and had the buffet breakfast in the main restaurant. No chance of starving. Preferred the more intimate setting of the Pegasus. The service was first class from the doorman to the front desk to the concierge, catering and the room staff. We would come back if we has a chance maybe in better weather to enjoy the pool and gardens.

I spent a long weekend in Malta, based at this hotel. It was very convenient for travelling about the island and for exploring the city of Valletta. It has the feel of a slightly old fashioned, rather grand,"traditional" five star hotel but has modern facilities. The staff were efficient and helpful. Recommended.

"Nice hotel at convenient location."
The Hotel was close to the bus terminus which made it convenient to catch either public transport or hop on/hop off bus. Also, it was close to the Republic street which is the centre of Valletta. Although I was pleased that coffee/tea making facilities were provided in my room there was no provision of complimentary water. Francis, at the concierge, proved to be very helpful in giving me advice on tours in and around Valletta. He also tipped me on the most convenient way to access Valletta waterfront, that is, cross the road to a car park and take a lift six floors down before walking down a subway. At the end of this, turn right and continue up to a zebra crossing. Cross this and proceed down slope to the waterfront.

"Wonderfully positioned for sightseeing in Valetta"
We went for 3 nights in November deliberately, so that we could sightsee at a cooler time of year. In the 3 days we saw most of the sights ( but the War Museum being closed was a disappointment) We also enjoyed the good standard of the restaurants. A half day visit to Mdina, the old capital, is worth the effort and go on the public bus, only one and a half Euros for an all day ticket!

"Excellent hotel in all respects"
This was my third stay at the Phonecia and was as just as enjoyable as during previous visits over several years. The hotel's location is of particular value with easy close access to Valetta and the main bus terminal for Malta. Many of the important tourist attractions are easily reached on foot. The food in both restaurants and the bar snacks were all well up to standard and the helpfulness of all staff especially noteworthy. My room was very comfortable and the room service without fault. The wonderful view of the harbour from the room helped to make the holiday highly memorable.

This hotel is in a great location. Handy for the bus station to travel all over the island with very cheap 6day tickets that enabled us to go wherever we wished. Lots of lovely restaurants and very friendly people. Plenty to see in the town or if preferred the hotel grounds are vast with lovely pool and amenities. Felt very safe here. The travel staff in the hotel were also very helpful, recommending tours and advising us of locations for things we wished to see.

Wonderful location just outside the beautiful capital city. ideal for exploring the island due to the proximity of the bus station. the hotel is an oasis in a busy bustling city. take a stroll through the peaceful gardens to the beautiful spacious pool area which has lots of new loungers and a wonderful view of the island. the rooms are airy and spacious and the huge double beds are so comfortable. the palm court lounge is wonderful to sit and have afternoon tea and scones. The staff in the hotel cannot do enough for you as they are very proud of their hotel and the service they provide. the front desk staff and the concierge boys are so helpful and really interested in making the most of your visit. very good breakfast choice and a lovely way to start your day having your morning tea and toast, full english or continental breakfast on the outside terrace.

I think that it is the best hotel in Valletta. I love room 202, you can see the Bus Terminus and the entry gate to the walled city! Has 2 balconies! They even gave me the room even if I was quite early for check-in time (considering that i also used points to pay for it)! It is very near public transportation about 50 meters. Very near the gates to Ledra shopping about 75 meters. Near the ferry to the Three Cities about 200 meters. Has all the amenities that you would need (complmentary water, slippers,etc). May be quite expensive compared to the other hotels but you will be safe and properly located! Will not think twice to go back to the Phoenicia!

"Nice hotel with an imposing position."
Nice hotel just outside the fortification of Valetta. Easy walk to the shops and cafés. It has a very private pool with bar and brasserie. On the downside it is right next to the main bus station for Malta and if you are unlucky enough to have a room towards the front on the east side then the buses start warming up from 5:30am... The bathrooms could certainly do with some upgrading to be worthy of 5*.. On the whole a nice place with some excellent features.

"An excellent location; very convenient location."
The Phoenicia is an "old style" grand and spacious hotel with extensive gardens and an impressive swimming pool and bar location at some distance from the hotel through the gardens. The hotel is five minutes walk from the centre of Valletta with all its historical interests. Restaurants and cafes abound and the Maltese people are invariably friendly and helpful to visitors. The bus terminal being within 200 yards is very convenient, the busses are good, frequent and very reasonable priced. One can get to anywhere on the Island from this terminal at a cost of 1 euro 30 cents for a one day ticket. A 7 day ticket is even better value. It is not designed to be a family hotel and children would be out of place.

Nice stay, was expecting more from this hotel's website. It aged a little, the gym is rather minimalistic and the breakfast buffet is nothing out of the ordinary. Location however is great, just by the Valletta, next to the main bus station and taxi ranks - picked up and dropped at the hotel door for close to nothing.
