Perfect for a few days in Valletta
The Phoenicia is a superbly run luxury hotel just outside the main gate into Valletta. From start to finish our stay there was perfect; the staff are terrific, the property is immaculate throughout and the food is first class. There are lots of accommodation options in Valletta but the Phoenicia is a very polished operation compared to others in our experience, and the small price premium is well worth it.

This hotel and staff combine classic style with modern efficiency. The Spa is a great addition, I utilised it regularly and found the relaxation and excellent treatments most helpful to me as a restorative.

The Phoenicia is one of the finest hotels in the world. It is elegant and sophisticated without being elitist. The location is perfect. Triton fountain and the impressive walls of Valetta are right in front of it. The entire city of Valetta is within easy walking distance - we're talking 10 minutes maximum to pretty much everywhere you want to go. It's quiet, unlike other places that are directly inside the city walls. My room was beautiful with gorgeous decorated tiles on the floor. The bed was marvelous and comfortable with a large selection of pillows (which I highly value as many hotel pillows are too overstuffed for me). The multiple dining options were all delicious, especially the breakfast buffet and the weekend brunch (highly recommended). The hotel staff and the restaurants' wait staff went out of their way to be friendly and helpful. Waiter Saroj Gautam was especially cool. There's a taxi stand located right outside the hotel, so getting around the island is easy from here. I was also able to arrange for a private driver for the day through the hotel concierge. Everything about my stay at The Phoenicia was excellent. It's about as close to the perfect hotel as I have ever experienced. Highly recommended.
