This was a first trip to Malta arranged to coincide with my 60th birthday. I travelled with family but took a double room for single occupancy so had plenty of space...
The welcome was warm and friendly, I was delighted to find a birthday card and lovely chocolate cake in my room, everyone gave us good advice. Harbour view so lovely.
I'd like to mention Doris on housekeeper duties, Jonathan, Sebastian and Francis on concierge, Carmen and Antony in the Phoenix plus Charles Azzopardi the general manager as going beyond regular service.
Location is ideal. Everything is either within walking distance or reached by bus from outside the hotel. Valletta is a safe and friendly city with lovely views, cosy restaurants, historic sites...
I can't imagine a better hotel for a first visit to Malta, and I would love to return one day.

Room Tip: Get a harbour view, and 3rd and 4th floors are non smoking.

I really enjoyed my stay at Phoenicia. The staff were very helpful and friendly.
It has perfect location since it is located withing a walking distance from the city centre.
The beds are very comfortable.

Hardly the 5star comfort of a modern hotel but Phoenicia retains a charm and character from the past. Excellent location for visiting Valletta. Rooms modernised but with tv as you proudly owned in 1990, plastic shower curtain that sticks to you. Wonderful big washbasin and bidet too. Pity there was no heating in the bathroom in November.
Breakfast buffet very good. Oriental neighbours seemed delighted to fill their bags for the day.
Have stayed here several times and this was the first time we visited the gardens and pool area. Wonderful pool area- will be back in summer to benefit from this.
WiFi expensive at 5€ an hour.

this hotel is NOT a 5 stars hotel, better 3,5 to be nice.....
my room, being a smoker, is in the parallel world of the first floor. I can see nothing from my window but verybody can see what I do considering that there are the anti-light curtains but no the light curtains. so I have to stay in the dark if I don't want that the people of the noble foors look inside.
than:
1. the shower hose is ful of rust and the pipe inside broken. water everywhere but not in the pipe;
2. treasury box never worked: 2 days ago they told me was a problem of battery... still waiting.
3. waiting always for the extra water you must receive: better ask for.
4. old doors with key weighing 1 kg
5. when they knck at the door, it seems an attack wih heavy weapons
6. room service: they don't know the difference between a jag and a thermos....
7. the moquette at the floow is old but old but old and dirty!
8. the trash bin never washed and of course they don't put plastic bag inside....

5 stars, yes of course.

This is a lovely hotel - such a change from the places that you normally stay on business trips. It is visually very pleasing and has great staff. I thought the complementary drinks at 6.30 were a good way to meet people and find out about Malta. One thing that could be updated is the lighting in the rooms. I had to ask for a router to get wireless broadband in my room but that was not a problem. I'd definitely go back, on both business and pleasure.
