Lovely hotel, we think the best in Valletta ( we did look round another one but the pool was at the end of a very long garden) The steps (89) out of the hotel were a killer, my calves! Coming back was ok. Yes, I know they have a shuttle bus but once in a morning (10am) and back at...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We had THE most relaxed and enjoyable stay at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. The room, with sea/harbour view, was great. It was large and comfortable for two people to just kick back and relax which we needed to do! The stay for the week cost the same as other mid-range hotels (we got a special deal) and is walking distance...

This is the second time we have stayed here and have been impressed both times. Excellent accommodation, good food and helpful, friendly staff. Nothing is too much trouble and the staff we met seemed proud to be working there. Well done.

From the moment we walked into the foyer, we knew we had made the right choice. Apart from one or two hiccups regarding staff - which were quickly sorted by the Customer Relations Team - we had a wonderful stay. Our room (616) was well-positioned with a lovely view of the harbour. The room - and indeed the hotel -...

Stayed for a week in April. Had a lovely spacious room with 180 degree harbour view which was frankly stunning! The breakfast was good with lots of choice. Loved the cooked omelettes. Had the buffet dinner on several evenings which had an amazing selection of good food, something for everyone. Swam in both pools. The outdoor pool is lovely albeit...

This is a lovely hotel, with all the amenities one expects of a five-star hotel. The staff is wonderful and very helpful. They cope beautifully even at full capacity. The breakfast is, as advertised, the best in Malta. The pools beautiful, though one cannot swim laps in the indoor pool. This would be a perfect hotel for yacht owners, since...

This is not a 5 star hotel. Max 3 star +. Not super clean. There are clean ladies knocking at 8 in the morning - on Sunday- where you are still sleeping asking to make the room!!! Can you imagine that?! This means to be unorganized, simply as it is.

The hotel offers bad food. The risotto is eatable. For sparkling water you have to pay extra, but not for still. The shower area in the room is very old and not so clean. There is no bottom beside the bed to switch on and off the light in the whole room. There is no cable for loading the mobile...

Hard to fault the Excelsior. We had a top floor suite which was spacious and comfortable with a good view of the harbour from the balcony. A king size bed with an excellent mattress and good quality pillows meant we slept well. With the balcony doors closed there was no noticeable noise apart from the air conditioner which was fine....

Its a luxury hotel so you expect to see and feel the quality and richness of the décor and hopefully the tip top attention of staff. The former has this and you won't be disappointed on that front and the room we stayed in was spacious and very comfortable. The bar area's offer the causal and formal choice to suit...
