My husband and I booked the Phoenicia for our first visit to Malta - and could not have made a better choice. This is a beautiful, established hotel with the grandeur of a twenties era but without being pretentious. Our standard room was clean and well equipped and very spacious. Breakfast was all we could wish for and we rarely needed to eat again until much later in the day. They also have a chef to cook your eggs to order, including very tasty omelettes.
We enjoyed the tranquillity of the pool area (no screaming children!) and ate poolside one evening. Service was outstanding from the housemaid to concierge. We can also recommend the afternoon tea.
Of course the other advantage of the Phoenicia is its location - right beside the city gate and bus terminal. The city is some way from beaches but the hotel provided a free shuttle taxi service for us on one day - and we would certainly recommend this as a change from city sightseeing. Our only issue was the cost of eating in the hotel restaurants - these are quite expensive for those on a tight budget. However there are ample choices within Valletta.
Thank you Phoenicia - we were sorry to leave and will certainly come back again one day!
