We used the Phoenicia Hotel as our base for a week’s holiday in Malta. The choice was based on the recommendation of a close friend and its proximity to Valletta and the bus station, as we chose not to hire a car. The hotel didn’t disappoint on any of these counts. Its location couldn’t be bettered and it had a classic splendour with all those little extras that make a difference between a four star and five star hotel. The ladies at reception were particularly helpful in researching and booking restaurants for us, and the free wi-fi coverage was a godsend. This was advertised as only available in the public rooms but we seemed to be able to pick it up in our room on the first floor, which was a real boon. The Hotel seems to have a mix of rooms available, including singles: Ours was a double: Not overly large, but perfectly adequate, with a lovely view over Marsamxett Harbour, and a balcony. Sadly the wind, for which Malta seems to be known, often made it too chilly to sit out for long periods. We had breakfast included in our booking which was extensive and catered for all tastes; it most definitely set one up for the day! We ate out at local restaurants most evenings, but did go to the hotel’s “Maltese Evening”. This offered a variety of food and wine, both in unlimited quantities! It was also nice to be invited to a ‘Manager’s Reception’, something that few hotels seem to do these days. We’d certainly recommend the Phoenicia and would have no qualms about staying there again. In truth, however, were we to return, we’d probably opt for a self-catering apartment, as we came back having gained more than a few pounds!
