Reviewed 21 January 2013

I stayed at this hotel in January 2013 and enjoyed it very much. Very comfortable and friendly. The traditional crusty bread at breakfast is delicious. The hotel is extremely well located. Of course the outdoor swimming pool was not in use. Therefore I would have liked a more welcoming and larger fitness centre, possibly with sauna and steam bath.

The building is impressive: is part of the fortress that surrounds the city of Valetta, Malta. Nice rooms, quiet and with nice views. Good fitness room, nice gardens to chill and very nice open air heated swimming pool. The breakfast is excellent and the service is friendly. The best of the hotel is the space where the bar is. Still...

The hotel provides excellent and unobtrusive service in the style of a traditional grand hotel. It is good value for money and the breakfasts are to die for. There is free Wi-fi in the lounge but broadband in the bedrooms is provided at a charge. This would be my only complaint.

We got married here in Sept 2012. It really was a perfect location; not only for a wedding but for a Maltese holiday. The location is just perfect, 2mins walk to the centre of Valletta or the bus station where you will find buses to all corners of the island. To be honest as we had family and friends with...

Yes, it is like going back 50 years. That's why I like it. Staff who actually talk to you. Who appear to enjoy their jobs. I've been going to the hotel for only about five years, yet I mostly seem the same people each time. That's a good sign. I hope it stays the same. There aren't many places left...

I paid ~ € 115 for a room (roughly 16-19 sqm), balcony with view of the yacht harbour and a spacious bathroom but with no breakfast.

This stay was a surprise from my boyfriend for Christmas. The rooms were well appointed, tastefully decorated and the staff a delight!

This was our fourth Christmas at 'The Phoenica' and,as usual, it was very much like a family reunion. We slipped into mode immediately and were made so welcome with carols on the steps of the hotel, mulled wine and chestnuts, two other carol receptions in the Palm Court Lounge, and an excellent lecture on 'The Phoenicians'. It was warm enough...
