Stayed with kids 2&4 years old in a family room (real full rooms with adjoining doors- bliss!) Rooms are clean and welcoming and we even got a welcome wine! Bed comfortable and shower pressure and volume a delight! Kids love the indoor pool which is a great pre dinner swim. And dinner at the hotel is a delight! As they... More

The Excelsior Hotel is getting a bit old. Still, it beats competitors in the 5 star area by far. All key criteria for a perfect stay are met honored by the hotel and its staff. The location of the hotel is the first big point. Just a few hundred meters from the entrance to the old city of Valletta stops... More

We spent one night in the Excelsior due to an overbooking at our own hotel. The staff are friendly and try hard, but are somewhat let down by a lack of training, management and attention to detail. There were 3 receptionist when we checked in, but it was taking them about 5-7 minutes to deal with each customer, and sometimes... More

My wife and I stayed here in early January 2015. We had a three night 'deal' with room and breakfast at 110 Euro's a night, so a good price. The entrance is very attractive with it's large area, red carpet and sweeping stairs. Impressive. The room was on the city side with a small balcony, and smoking was permitted on... More

I had always wanted to travel to Malta & I had a few days at the Excelsior. I had a reasonably priced room on the ground floor and it was pleasant and comfortable. The best view is at breakfast. Wow. What a beautiful view of the harbour and surrounding area. Access to the central city area is a walk up... More

I should say at the outset that I have stayed here a few times and will do so again. The fantastic selling point for this hotel is the amazing view over the beautiful Marsamxett Harbour in Malta from both dining rooms and from the bedrooms (if you choose one with the view - and you must do so because the...

Excellent hotel although no one told us about the courtesy bus to town which I think would be helpful if put on the information sheet given to us about the different restaurants, pool, spa etc. Free wi-Fi was an added bonus. Breakfast excellent, lots of chose from cooked to continental. We only ate in the main restaurant on New Years... More

Grand in every respect - ballroom, sweeping staircases, indoor and outdoor pools, lavish restaurants, concierge desk, hotel transport - just slightly out of its time. Staff are plentiful and helpful. Breakfasts are lavish and food is tasty. Promised free wi-Fi actually exists and better still works! Only one whinge: just wish they could warm my room! Oh, and lots of... More

Champagne party, with champagne on arrival (real champagne) and available all evening with an 'open bar' along with any other drink available. Food was waiter service with canapes to the table. Very good band with a singer. Over all an excellent evening and would most likely book again this year

A most relaxing holiday. The staff were superb, extremely helpful. Breakfast had everything we could want. The daily courtesy car up to Valletta was most useful as I have an arthritic condition. The staff employee who drove us on our trip to Gozo knew his stuff and was so friendly
