When booking the hotel by phone, I was told the room had a balcony. It did not. I ended up sitting on a stoop in the street outside the hotel to have a cigarette or two. Breakfast was served 2.5 blocks away at a restaurant. That's fine, as long as it isn't raining. The hotel guests weren't even offered an... More

Dear guest, Thank you for sharing your views here. Although 4 months have passed since your stay with us, we remember you very well. Your room was no smoking, something that you did not observe. You are stating that your brand new room did not have a balcony when in fact you had two balconies with one of them over... More

Could have been a better experience. Got a good deal on Booking.com. Didn't read the fine print though, my TWO YEAR OLD "counts" -- even though she sleeps in bed with us when we travel. Our bad, we missed the fine print. Look: I've stayed in DOZENS of hotels, look at how many reviews I have... never have I had... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Grand Harbour Hotel. We are sorry to hear that paying a €25 supplement for upgrading your room to a larger room with a double bed and a single bed + buffet breakfast tarnished your stay with us. We assure you that even after paying the supplement for... More

For Valletta this hotel is ideal. Nice and quiet, despite being right by the harbour, newly refurbished, and very good value for money. All the staff were polite and friendly, and there is a great roof terrace with amazing views. I will be back!

First time to Malta and wanted to stay in Valletta near the town center. This Hotel was superbly located and had the nicest view of the Harbour. BUT we were there in March 2014 and when we arrived they were busy with renovations and although it wasn't noisy it was still annoying that they didn't warn us. We couldn't use... More

Grand Harbour Hotel is gorgeously located next to the Valletta Harbour, providing nice views even if your room isn't in the front. The staff is most accommodating, arranging for us to extend our stay when they were heavily booked after we changed our travel plans. The traditional British breakfast is excellent, but not for a long-term stay--more daily variety is... More

Simple, clean and quiet hotel at a convenient location in Valletta. The gentleman at the reception was very helpful and friendly when we arrived, providing us with all sorts of information. Easy to walk everywhere. While the room was a bit small, it was clean and quiet.

I was very pleasantly surprised by the grand harbour hotel. Set on Valetta's coastal promenade, the hotel is walking distance to all the sites and restaurants. The rooms (mine only had partial sea view) are a lot newer and cleaner and than the exteriors of the historic building would make you think. You can tell they've had a facelift recently.... More

This is a find in the heart of Valletta over looking Grand Harbour. It is a 10 minute walk to the central bus station with frequent buses to anywhere on the island. We spent over a week here and the €6.50 weekly bus pass (including to and from the airport) is a real bargain. The hotel itself is very small... More

I stayed there for several days and they are currently renovating the reception and the ground floor. Due to the construction work they reception is on the first floor which is okay, although the reception is a very small room. The elevator allows you to access the rooms on the higher floor. The problem with the elevator is hat if... More
