This hotel has a very good situation in the middle of la valletta ! You wont be disapointed. Great breakfast with choice. Standard room very clean. But ! But the elevator was just against the wall of our bed (room 503)... And it was just impossible to sleep due to this very noisy elevator... Such a shame !

Spent a couple of nights/days in this hotel a couple of weeks ago. The owner and staff, always friendly and with a warm smile made us feel very welcome and they were very helpful with all our requests, from giving tips about the city and the country to finding good value tour deals. The hotel is in a great location,... More

We visited this hotel twice for their breakfast as it was round the corner from our apartment. The choice was reasonable and cost 7.50 euros each. The desk staff were very knowledgeable and we were able to book excursions at cheaper rates whilst there.

Had the best view in the whole hotel. Lovely, friendly, helpful staff. Wasn't too pleased about the two single beds that had to be pushed together, as I was staying with my partner and for that reason I'm scoring the Grand Harbour Hotel a 4 instead of a 5

It does the job just right for anyone visiting Valletta. You are not in the middle, just on the edge looking out over Senglea, Birgu and Kalkara. You get a great view from the open air roof top. Its all safe up there, which a wall and railing and such a lovely place to spend an evening with a bottle... More

This is a great place to stay in Valletta. The hotel is spotlessly clean and the rooms are comfortable and quiet. Very accommodating staff and service is with a smile. The hotel commands fabulous views of the harbour and the location is perfect as it is only a short walk to the city centre. Highly recommended and will definitely stay... More

The views of Valletta Harbor were spectacular. It would be good to read a little history (1565) to really appreciate it. The service and advice for site seeing from Chris, Mario and Robert was wonderful. The Grand Harbor Hotel is conveniently located five minute walk up hill to main street with Cathedral of St. John, Knights of Malta Palace, wine... More

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

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!
