It ticks all the boxes
This is a true five star hotel. What makes it outstanding is the overall feeling of being able to relax there. The staff are magnificent, helpful, very friendly and very capable of making you feel welcome. The grounds as part of the hotel are magnificent. It is really difficult to find fault and minor are that the drawers in the inbuilt wardrobe were not part of the renovation process and the English Breakfast was not that good or the continental not very extensive. However don’t let this put you off as everything else makes up for it. The staff in the Club Bar were blessed with a good sense of humour and Bishaak from Nepal needs a special mention as well as his boss who were quite entertaining.
Lovely hotel and well located
I had not been to Malta since the 1970s. Previously I had stayed at the Phoenicia and we were not disappointed with our stay. The hotel has been extremely well refurbished and is a pleasure to stay in. We booked one of the suites with views of the harbour (232 I think). It was extremely comfortable. A few minor criticisms. The bathroom only has one basin which is a hotel of this quality and cost should provide 2. Also if one of you showers and the other baths, ask for shampoo and extra soap/body wash in advance as these are only provided in the shower (fixed to the wall). Easily resolved though by asking hosekeeping. Aside from this the hotel is faultless. Staff are friendly and the location, near the Triton Fountain and harbour walls is superb.
A must stay if you’re visiting Valletta
Excellent position for staying in Valletta. Everything is in walking distance. Staff were all very friendly and efficient., nothing was too much trouble. Very good breakfast choice and their evening menu offered some lovely dishes. Just a great hotel.
We knew from reviews and photos that The Phoenicia was a lovely hotel. But somehow all of that information didn’t accurately convey just how fabulous this place is. If we didn’t have jobs and kids to return to in NYC we seriously would consider just moving into this hotel. I think the clincher for us was the pool and patio area. What a view! What service! What delicious food! Every day after sightseeing we’d race down to the pool for a swim and Aperol spritz. It’s all so civilized! Yes, The Phoenicia is a fantastic hotel with all the amenities and incredible location. It’s only negative (if you could call it that) is you may never want to leave.
This hotel is located in the heart of Malta. You are on a hill that sees the fountain, water, downtown etc. You can walk anywhere within a reasonable time. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The pool area is beautiful and allows for complete relaxation.
