This is a simple but comfortable and relatively quiet hotel. We had a balcony overlooking the port with the same great view as the open air rooftop breakfast dining area. The breakfast was simple but good. The owner, Aldo, was extremely nice and helpful. This is not a luxury hotel but an extremely nice simple hotel. There was a good street side restaurant down the block and there and buses into Valetta. It is also a short drive to Valetta if you have a good GPS and the courage to drive on the left side of the road on narrow, winding, hilly streets with lots of roundabouts and traffic.
My son and I couldn't quite believe the view of Grand Harbour from Room 118! Could have spent the whole week looking at the boats/ships. From the moment we arrived, the staff made us feel welcome and were very helpful. In the heat, we were very grateful for the effective air-conditioning which worked a treat in our spacious room. Breakfasts simple but satisfying, though long-life milk does not taste right on cereal or in tea. The location of the hotel is superb - a stone's throw away from the Upper Barracca Gardens and we could even watch the noon gun being fired at the battery from the roof-top terrace. We had a wonderful holiday in Valletta/Malta and would not hesitate to stay at the British Hotel again. Thanks Chris and the rest of the staff.

Staying at the Phoenicia is like going in a time machine to a time when service was everything. From the moment we arrived to a "welcome back" to the time we checked out the staff were wonderful. Smiles are not professional but genuine. Unfortunately some of the guests this time were arrogant and rude but this is did not daunt any of the staff whatsoever. The facilities are excellent and the refurbishment programme progresses. The poor air conditioning system in our room last year has been replaced and is excellent and flat screen TVs have replaced the cumbersome old sets. Wi-fi is now freely available in all bedrooms. This year we ate in the hotel at the grill and jazz evening, excellent food, wine and value. The hotel could not be better situated virtually adjacent to the nearly finished city gates with large numbers of excellent restaurants within a few minutes walk. If you want a relaxing holiday with good food, a wealth of history and a return to the days where service matters then the Phoenicia is for you. My wife and I love Malta and would not conceive of staying anywhere else.
Lovely hotel with fab breakfast and best of all is the pool areas right on the harbour with ladders down to the sea for swimming. 2 nice pools. Adult one is deep Nd salt water. Awesome!
The room was small And bed was hard but I'll trade that for the view and swimming Anyday
