4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Facilities are nice, staff is trying, but sometimes overtrying :) (they come to ask every 2 min if everything is OK, well, sometimes you wanna talk with your friends at the table), location is super, food is maybe too ordinary for 5 star, but overall this hotel is a good one to stay.

And for what we paid which was £1200 could of had a nicer room to be honest. However, the housekeeping staff were lovely, couldn't fault them. They... More

We stayed for 3 days at this Hotel. It's supposed to be a 5 Star Hotel but was poor. The room we received after waiting 3 hours to acess was awful. Overlooking a roof with no other view. We asked to be moved , which to be fair they did. This was marginally better as had a slight side view... More

This is always my hotel of choice when spending a weekend away in Malta. Airy rooms, nice view, great service overall and very attentive staff. The fact that receptionist would remember our names from visit to visit just goes to show this. I love the indoor pool best. Love the breakfast buffet too.Just fantastic.

This was our first time to Malta and what a first impression we got! The Hotel lobby is breathtaking it definitely gives you the wow experience and is definitely a true 5 star in every department. It was our wedding anniversary whilst we were there and we were treated to a free upgrade to a sea view room which had... More

Have just returned from a 10 night holiday at the Grand Excelsior in Valetta with my husband and son. We have visited Malta a number of times before and without doubt this is the nicest hotel and area we have stayed in. The hotel is luxurious with a fabulous level of comfort, cleanliness and service where nothing is too much... More
