Hotel Phoenicia at the centre of Valletta’s regeneration
One of the Hotel Phoenicia’s many attractions is its proximity to Valletta, with many of the capital city’s historical and cultural delights just a pleasant stroll away. Such perfect positioning also makes the hotel ideal for business meetings, cultural tours or a romantic city break in Valletta.
Currently, the Phoenicia’s urban surroundings are being upgraded thanks to a multi-million capital project. All these works are well on schedule and are in no way causing any noise or access issues to our guests.
The new bus terminus, which was previously located around the Triton Fountain at the entrance to Valletta, has now been transferred to St James Ditch. This means that while public transport is still just a pleasant walk away from the hotel, no buses will cause any noise pollution to our guests. Moreover, the new buses guarantee a high level of safety, comfort and efficiency.
The public garden in front of the hotel is also being upgraded and will be transformed into a peaceful and green oasis. The garden will also include Maltese sculptor Vincent Apap’s master work, the Triton Fountain, which will be moved to a position in front of the hotel.
All these works will be finalised in the coming months.
Valletta’s city gate project, earmarked for completion in 2013, will certainly enhance the hotel’s surroundings. Renzo Piano’s plans for Valletta’s city gate are truly a masterpiece in the making – the new city gate, open air theatre and parliament will not only enhance the views from our hotel, but will also add to the cultural and artistic elements that surround the Hotel Phoenicia. During these works, Valletta is still accessible from the main gate. Valletta is also bidding to be the European Capital of Culture 2018.
