Despite the name, the Grand Harbour Hotel is not actually as it sounds. But don't let that put you off. I spent a lot of time in the Autumn looking at decent hotels to stay and I chose this one, because it was easy to find and near the bus terminus. Also, it was quite affordable. The rooms were clean... More

Stayed here with 3 friends for four nights at the end of November. The hotel is in an excellent location, being just a few minutes walk from the cathedral and the centre of Valletta, yet the area is quiet and peaceful. There are stunning views over the Grand Harbour and there is a rooftop terrace to enjoy an evening drink... More

The Grand Harbour Hotel is ideally placed - climb up and you are in the centre of Valetta, go down and you are at the ferry port to catch a boat across the harbour. Ask for a room with a seaview and watch the boats - better still book a room on the 6th floor with a private terrace and... More

One of the owners, Mario, was extremely helpful and knowledgeable always ready with advice when asked. You may find the breakfast area could get crowded but it soon seems to clear. Breakfast good selection and drinks from the bar whenever wanted. It was a very... More

Hotel in the old town. Area very picturesque.Hotel itself a bit on the old side. Room (503) right beside the lift shaft. Very noisy. Asked to be moved but not possible due hotel full. Very little natural light as the room looked out into the central piping duct. Hair(not mine) left in the sink after room was cleaned. Also even... More

This was our fourth visit to the Grand Harbour Hotel and now that the refurbishments are almost complete it is better than ever -- there is still the lift to be replaced with a more modern one and during the few weeks that that work will take there is likely to some unavoidable disruption. However even that will be finished... More
