There is really no other place to stay in Malta that even comes close to the standard that the Phoenicia Hotel delivers. The ambience, the comfort, the luxury, the staff, together with the best location in Valletta. Do yourself a favour and stay at the Hotel Phoenicia you will not regret it!

Beautiful hotel well located to transport and city

Pros: Beautiful building, pretty gardens and lovely pool with large bar area and excellent facilities. Friendly helpful staff. Excellent location.
Cons: Bathroom water could be hotter. Ongoing building work will help - the advertised café was not there yet.
Location: Located high up just outside Valleta city walls with easy access to all the sights.. Very close to bus station for transport throughout the island.
Beautiful 5 star hotel located next to the city walls of Valleta city and close to the bus station. Excellent 5 star service and facilities with friendly helpful staff. Gardens and pool are well located and unsurprisingly used for weddings. receptions etc Spacious twin room with excellent bathroom facilities, serviced several times daily

Dear Lesley Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience at The Phoenicia and I am very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. I completely understand your disappointment about the Café Phoenicia not being open yet. Unfortunately, we had to wait until the roof of our new Spa is finished, but thankfully this should be completed within the next couple of weeks now. Thanks again and we are hoping to be able to welcome you back to the hotel sometime in the future. Kind regards,
