Situated at a short walk from Valletta's main gates and yet at the seaside offering a possibility to have a swim in the Mediterranean, location is THE ASSET of the Excelsior (you should be aware though that there are a few steps to climb on your walk to the centre, this might be an impediment for less mobile guests).

We [family of four adults] stayed here for four nights in the Executive Club with a partial sea view. We would thoroughly recommend both. Our rooms overlooked the pool and the water and the opposite shore. It is highly picturesque, rewarding very long relaxation on the room balcony. The rooms are very comfortable - although attention to detail could be... More

An excellent hotel. Large, airy, spotless. Wonderful breakfasts, comfortable bar and make sure to spend time in their outdoor bar, right beside the yachts and enjoy the breeze flowing by. Rooms very comfy, lovely bathroom with both shower and bath. All the staff we met were so well trained in their line of work, very polite and friendly. Indoor pool... More

We stayed here as a couple for a week bed and breakfast. Overall the hotel is impressive with large clean well appointed rooms, large outdoor and indoor swimming pools, and a small beach area with steps into the sea. Sun beds are always available and only on the weekend did the hotel seem full with a wedding taking place. The... More

What can we say about the Excelsior, apart from we loved it. The staff were amazingly friendly, co-operative and willing to assist at all times. The hotel certainly made every effort to make you feel unique. We had a room on level 9, looking over the harbour. It cost a little more, but we were treating ourselves whilst we had... More

We stayed at this hotel for the second time and continue to be very impressed. The location is great. The pool area is lovely with plenty of sun loungers and parasols. We were in room 429 which has a view over the pools to the sea/harbour. There is plenty of space in the room and it was spotlessly clean. There... More

We had a fantastic week in this lovely hotel, where staff were friendly, polite and attentive at all times. Our room was large, with wonderful views overlooking the harbour, and the gym and pool area were also well-sized and well-equipped; an added bonus was the private beach attached to the hotel, which allowed you to cool off and swim in...

So we managed to book the hotel, literally last minute, for 2 nights last week. We thought we had booked a superior deluxe room of some sort, and the hotel were aware that we were staying as a family of 5, with 3 little ones (aged 6,3 and 3). When we arrived to check in they had upgraded us to... More
