If you think that you go to a 3*Hotel than Excelsior is wow! But If you think to be in a 5*hotel, than you'll be disappointed: Breakfast on the room (5€ surplus) is a good idea. But 3 minutes eggs (sometimes boild 10 minutes!) without eggcups is not a good idea for 5*. ("Sorry, we don't have eggcups actually") On...

We booked this hotel for my girlfriends birthday and for our room, although not sea view facing but with a sea view from the balcony, it cost us £460 for 5 days and 4 nights inclusive of breakfast so about £92 per night, so £45 per person per night. I admit it's off season and hence why prices maybe slightly...

We spent 7 nights over the Christmas period so had the range of experiences from food to multiple rooms. Convenient to Valletta if you don't mind the (excellent) exercise of walking up the steps to town as the hotel is on hill and reception is on 6th floor. Our 1st room on 2nd floor was dark, facing wall & on...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December and had a great time. As a family the room was spacious and clean. The hotel had enough facilities to make the stay enjoyable. Breakfast had an impressive array of food and local produce to sample as well as the usual standard elements. The swimming pool was clean and the...

Excelsior Grand Hotel is a large hotel, which offers a vast selection of services and possibilities for its clients. It is located within a short walking distance of the Valletta center. The route is today a little bit tedious due to road renovation works going on. When you enter, you will be impressed with the large lobby (especially with its...

Stayed here after the Xara Palace in Mdina and so quite a contrast coming to a huge resort-type hotel after a small, quiet boutique hotel. Having said that, I found myself in a spacious room, with terrace, overlooking the harbour and Sliema beyond. Overall it was very comfortable and had good facilities and service. All the staff I met were...

We stayed here for a long weekend with friends. Hotel staff are welcoming and although we arrived early we were allowed to check in and get our room. The hotel is a ten minute walk from the centre. Roadworks are going in so it wasn't the nicest of walks into town. The room itself is quite spacious but terribly dated....

Stayed twice in a week on my way in and out of Malta. Most of the experience was excellent, the Staff in the Admirals Restaurant where I had dinner twice were outstanding.

We loved everything about the hotel - the location, the stunning harbour view, the swimming pools & spa, their incredible range of services, the 24-hour Harbour View Bar, the breakfast, the restaurants, the room service, and, most of all, the staff: professional, helpful, genuinely friendly, without a trace of that slightly superior attitude that you can sometimes experience in a...

A family-group of five stayed here over New Year, and got exactly what we'd expected. - Comfortable rooms, with decent facilities. - Welcoming reception staff, who couldn't do enough to help (and provided Champagne for an anniversary celebration within our party). - A convenient location with easy access to Valletta town centre. - A good selection for breakfast, with cooked...

“I assume the higher numbers on each floor have a better view (i.e. avoid 201-204 for example)”
