Had a great 7 day stay at the Grand Hotel Excelsior. Friendly, helpful staff, especially Eileen, our waitress at breakfast. She could not be more helpful. The hotel offers a lovely buffet breakfast, is situated near the bus terminal and overlooks the harbour. Highly recommended.

Lovely large room with good amenities. Ten minute walk to city gate. Friendly staff, especially Eileen who looked after us very well during breakfast with her cheery hospitality. Would definitely stay here again.

Lovely hotel for a break in Valetta. Breakfast buffets were wonderful, best experienced anywhere in Europe and evening entertainment in the bar was superb. Our break was wintertime so could not make use of the lovely looking outdoor pool/terrace area - very nice indoor swimming pool (could only use steam/sauna if pay extra for spa pass) - but very disappointing...

Stayed here for a few days while in Valletta. Large hotel with at least 500 rooms. Our room had a huge balcony which would have been great if we could use it - unfortunately it was too cold and windy. Room was large but somewhat dated (stained carpet). Concierge service was lacking. They had an intern manning the desk and... More

Not luxurious but very, very nice. Attentive & helpful staff. As others noted, you must climb many steps to the main road [but that is good for you after eating a big buffet breakfast!] We chose a twin-bed room with balcony & lovely views. Tea & coffee-making facilities in room which we greatly enjoy having at night. Join the hotel... More

Very high standard in perfect situation for Valetta. The rooms are spacious and the beds comfortable. Harbour/sea view rooms recommended. There is live entertainment every night. It is a climb from the hotel reception, 6th floor, on to the main road for Valetta, so be warned. The breakfasts are buffet with a good choice and evening meal is also buffet... More

Very close to the bus station which is Malta's transport hub, the hotel also has a harbour front location with swimming pools, a marina and a tiny sandy beach. To get to town and the bus station involves climbing 80 plus steps but it is worth it. Its nearest rival, the older Phoenicia faces the bus station and is on... More

From this lovely hotel a short walk along a busy road takes you to the bus station and the gates of the stunning city of Valetta. Once a mix up with the booking had been sorted out - double rooms booked instead of twin rooms - our stay here was very pleasant indeed. Breakfast was a typical European buffet with all... More

I stayed in the hotel for 10 nights. It was a special experience, excellent site, full comfort, good food and friendly staff. The main entrance to Valletta is just a short walk. I will be happy to return when I visit Malta again.
