How do you rate a 5* hotel? The Grand Excelsior isn't the most attractive hotel from the outside. Inside however, it is very nice, rooms are spacious, house keeping excellent. The pool is warm, the jacuzzi bordering cold the sauna 15euros to use! Breakfast is mainly cold including the items that are meant to be hot. Plates are cold and... More

This is a great hotel located very close to Valletta. The check in was very quick. The room was spacious and clean. The lobby bar was with a great view and excellent service. The buffet dinner and breakfast were very good. We really had a great time. We wished that we stayed there more than three nights. We booked this... More

Good value and excellent service with a great view over the harbour - wind too cold to sit out and no one by the poolside. Excellent music from Tony in the evening but a few of the old Brits need to show a bit more appreciation. Buffet very good value and breakfast good.

I stayed for six nights at this lovely hotel. The room was wonderful and very comfortable. A nice armchair for relaxing, a big bathtub for soaking in and an extremely comfortable bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast buffet was probably the best I've ever seen in a hotel. The only reason I didn't give the hotel... More

March , 2014. I spent one night in hotel. The location is great, every attraction in Valletta and the central bus station are close too. You can catch the Airport by bus M4, M7, M5, it takes a cca. 26 minutes long, the ticket is 1,30 EUR only. The hotel outside not any special, but the garden with stairs is... More

We stayed here for a few nights to allow us to explore Valletta, the hotel is very luxurious and the rooms are comfortable. The view over the harbour is great and the staff are very helpful. We had breakfast in the hotel every day and it was fantastic, thought we didn't eat anything else there because it was so close... More

I have experienced exceptional service on each visit and special mention must go to Eileen who greets me warmly with a smile each morning. Would highly recommend the Grand Excelsior for excellent service, very high standard of rooms, excellent food, excellent... More

We found our stay in this hotel to be a wonderful experience, and can find nothing to fault at all. The staff, including the General Manager, were friendly, cheerful and efficient, and nothing was a bother to them. We were greeted warmly by our hotel taxi driver, and a refreshing fruit drink was waiting for us on our arrival at... More

A very nice hotel with true 5 star service - rooms are comfortably furnished, but are already a bit dated (some cracked tiles, dirty carpet..) Great pool where you can swim laps (in circles) and fitness studio area. The views from the restaurant and bar are very impressive. If you want to enjoy the view from your room, be prepared... More
