Something to bear in mind is that the location is at waterside level, so there is either a steep slope or about 80 steps to go up and down - unless using a car, which wasn't a problem for us but may be for others. Easy access to Valletta town and bus station. This was our first visit at this... More

My wife and I stayed here last week for four nights. We paid 101 euros a night for a room with a balcony facing the gardens with breakfast included. Breakfast was excellent - large buffet with chef making pancakes and egg dishes by request. Room was spacious - you can pay more for a sea view but lots of water... More

The rooms are spacious, some of them have a balcony and a sea view, although many rooms only offer a glimpse of the sea. The reception and restaurant area are well maintained. The overall hotel could do with some maintenance, such as painting. Breakfast is good. It is a slightly steep walk to get to the town, so may be... More

The Excelsior Grand Hotel is in fact "Grand". It has a beautiful lobby and some helpfull staff members. The executive room was very nice, but with view to the front - not the waterside - I guess it would be more peacefull and beautifull on the other side. But the room was well equipped with a nice comfortable bed, comfortable... More

I stayed during low season,in Feb 2015, and missed nothing at all, maybe half million of tourists; as I learnt that 1 millon visit Malta each year, and for a good reason: hospitality, history, climate, food, wines...... 5 star proffessional staff, proficient in English, ready to support you at any time. The Grand Excelsior Hotel is situated on the seaside,... More

Lovely hotel great location. You would need to be reasonably in shape there's quite a lot of steps to climb to get to the town. My only downside to the hotel was the ensuite the shower door was only able to open a small amount because of the location of the toilet and sink..All considered I would stay here again... More

At the end of January/first days of February 2015 we stayed 2 x 3 nights in Hotel Excelsior, room 421 and room 930. Both rooms had a side view on the harbor, on Manoel Island. You have to realize that the floors with the lobby and the entrance of the hotel are located on the 6th floor. Excellent hotel, good... More

A friend and I stayed here for a week over New Year. Initially we were slightly put out as we were greeted on arrival to say that unless we had booked for new year we couldnt eat there as they were full. Also there were not any tables free that night in the dining room! We had booked a side... More
