Loved this hotel, and would return at the drop of a hat. On arrival we were immediately upgraded to a room with a balcony and as we were on the 10th floor the city view was OK. The bed was very comfortable and we had everything we needed in the room - including a couple of bottles of water provided... More

The second time we have stayed at this hotel and have had another great stay. Could not fault room or the wonderful choice as breakfast. However the only let down was the poor service at the tiki village on an evening, especially on Sunday 26th July 2015. One waitress who spent most of the time around bar area. Did not... More

Hotel was well located for our needs. Silent location by the beach and short distance to Valletta by foot. If you have problems with your legs then this is not your place unless using taxi. Lots of stairs to reach the road and then still some hill to walk up to the city. Our room was located on seaside at... More

I stayed here on a recent business trip for 2 days and thought the hotel was fantastic. Its in an excellent part of town, with an easy walk to some of the great cultural places within Valetta. Views from the room were fantastic and the hotel staff were super attentive. Whilst I only had breakfast at the hotel, which was... More

We only needed to stay in Valletta for one night to catch the ferry early in the morning so booked here because of the free parking and close proximity to the virtu ferries terminal. We booked a basic room through booking.com and received an upgrade to seaview although on the ground floor. Everything was excellent in the room and the... More

This is a great value for a 5 star establishment. Priced well. The rooms with a sea view are breathtaking and the spa services are great. Every time we stay in Malta this is where we stay. Close to the airport and very secure. Would recommend this for a nice temp stop over if touring Europe.

Bite the bullet and book a balconied room with a view. We didn't and soon upgraded. Ideal for watching the world sail by and scrolling into Valletta for sights and dining. Friendly staff. A little down at heel in places for a newish hotel but that's part of the charm of Malta generally.

The Excelsior Grand Hotel is a beautiful place to stay in Valletta. On the waterfront it almost feels like you are on a cruise ship with a pool, bar and restaurant by the harbour. What made it special were the staff. Always courteous and friendly they made a real effort to make you feel looked after. Eileen at breakfast and... More

We spent two very happy weeks at the Excelsior in July 2015. The facilities are excellent and the staff superb. Our room was spacious, clean and modern and met all our requirements. We made great use of the gym, jacuzzi and both indoor and outdoor pools. The location is excellent - handy for the bus station and also the Sliema... More

I had a fantastic business related stay. The room was huge, the AC worked flawlessly, and the WIFI coverage was fantastic. The location is beautiful, however, the city of Valletta almost completely dies out after dark and it's hard to find anything like a grocery store anywhere near by. Not the hotel's fault of course. Breakfast was great, albeit a... More
