Massive view over the grand harbour and central Valletta, with a lovely roof terrace, and a five minute walk to some pretty cool bars with people having a glass of wine in the street with the view, and the city centre is basically right there. Rooms are perfectly fine if not exactly luxurious but if you're going to be out... More

Are you someone reading these reviews thinking I should or shouldn't go? Well let me put your mind at rest! I am someone who always goes to 4 and 5* hotels. And a friend wanted to me to go and see her house she had recently brought near this hotel.Only just coming back from a 5* holiday I needed to... More

Reading the various reviews I find it fascinating what people find to gripe about! Run by three brothers who are owner/managers, this hotel offers clean and comfortable accommodation and very good breakfasts. Definitely recommend booking a harbour view room - very atmospheric and stunning outlook. One reviewer mentioned the nearby steps which lead to the city centre. This is a... More

If the star rating was based on location alone, the Grand Harbour Hotel would be a five star hotel. Ask for a room with a view and there is nothing like it in Valetta. My single room overlooked the Grand Harbour and Birgu. The hotel is majestic, grand in the historical sense and from the outside it is like time... More

Perfect positioning lovely rooms and very friendly staff. I have stayed here on two occasions now and can highly recommend. Service is throughout the day and evening and always with a smile. Mario one of the owner managers is simply one of the nicest I've met so helpful and polite with excellent recommendations for further outings.

Interesting hotel ...very friendly staff with local knowledge and very helpful. Hotel was old but recently updated ..very clean with nice fittings, fast wifi. Our room on 6th floor was interesting as was with terrace but not really useful as terrace, although private, was not in front of bed, was to the side and down private corridor. However, was nice...

We were very fortunate to pick a lovely hotel over looking the harbour. There are very few hotels in Valletta. This is close to the city centre. Breakfast was more than I expected from a continental breakfast. There was a choice of hot food as well. The owner is an absolute gentleman very helpful, recommended and booked some very good...

I simply could not fault this hotel in any aspect at all. A small hotel ideally located with amazing views of the Grand Harbour. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Our room was a good size and light and airy with double aspect views of the harbour. The breakfast was of god quality and plentiful Ideally located to easily explore... More

This is a welcoming place to stay in. The location is perfect, just close to the centre of Valletta and the hotel is in itself nice, cosy and clean. Mr. Mario at the reception will welcome you warmly (he speaks 6 foreign languages !!!).

If you want a large plush resort, this is not the hotel for you. If you like small hotels with a great view and good service near the main attractions, Grand Harbour Hotel is perfect. It is right over the Victoria Gate with some rooms enjoying fabulous views and barely 3 blocks from the Knights of Malta's glorious "co-cathedral." Our... More
