Well, United Kingdom
Reviewed 6 January 2013

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...

We stayed at the Phoenicia Hotel for 5 nights over the Christmas period. As you walk into the Hotel you can appreciate the beautiful old building with welcoming staff and the comfortable Palm lounge. Our room on the 4th floor was not over large, the bathroom a little cramped but well equipped and both spotlessly clean . The room had...

We stayed at the Hotel Phonecia based on the TripAdvisor reviews. It is very well located, just on the door step of Valetta, and next to the bus terminus. Overall the hotel was oncea beautiful place, but now is very tired, which is fine, however the rates that are charged even in the low season do not reflect this (140...

The first thing that greets you as you enter this hotel is its classic charm. Add to that the very friendly and professional staff, and you instantly feel at home. However, all that fails in comparison to the quality and presentation of the food. Whether it's just a snack in the lounge or a meal in the Phoenix restaurant, the...

First time staying at the Phoenicia. There were a mix of guests from solo travellers to families while I was there but mostly couples from what I could see. I don't know if it was their usual practice but, for most nights in the lounge bar, there were different forms of entertainment from several couples dancing the Argentine Tango, to...

Reviewed 2 January 2013

This Hotel is well priced for a traditional large hotel that has all the facilities, lovely gardens and an excellent concierge, but it does lack the personality and culture of a smaller hotel. The evening entertainment with pianist or guitarist with unnecessary amplifier, playing corny ballards, was a little dire. However we had a great talk on Thursday night from...

The added bonus of staying at this hotel is that you feel part of history. Yes it might be looking a little tired in places but overall the experience is of the highest quality.

This was the second time I'd stayed at the Phoenicia, and it remains a first choice for Malta. The quality of the public rooms and bedrooms, and the service is what you'd expect from a 5-star hotel, and I had a superb harbour view. Many people obviously return time and again. The hotel is really well located just outside the...

My wife and I last stayed at the Phoenicia 10 years ago so we were very pleased to once again be visiting this superb and historic hotel at Christmas time. Whilst the Phoenicia may not be right for those looking for modern ultra-flashy décor and facilities, for those who appreciate elegance and history it is perfect. With the Phoenicia you...
