The Excelsior has stunning views over the harbour. We switched rooms upon arrival as the WC plumbing caused us a little concern. We had a large sun terrace which came at a price, but great views. The Excelsior is located adjacent to the Valleta walls. Staff were nice and friendly and very efficient. The maitre D's were quite brusque and... More

We very much enjoyed our six night stay at the Excelsior. The hotel is welcoming and very comfortable with all the amenities you would expect from a 5* hotel. The Reception area is very large with a lovely bar area overlooking the harbour. There are plenty of places to sit and relax throughout the hotel. The rooms are spacious, well... More

We visited the Excelsior in July, having stayed there before it was our first choice. We were not disappointed, the staff were excellent and the rooms extremely comfortable. All the public areas were immaculate and the hotel lived up to its 5 star status. The pool area was never crowded and a sun bed and parasol always available. The Tiki... More

This is our second year staying at this hotel and this year only because of the ongoing refurbishment at the Phoenicia caused booking was transferred to this hotel. Whilst the hotel is in a superb location and has many excellent qualities, it is badly let down by the breakfast service which I can only describe as well below par. You... More

Amazing hotel! Staff are on call whenever 24/7. Room was big and very clean. Pool facilities and restaurant are great also, and are fairly priced. Balcony view was a bonus and the hotel itself is spacious and inviting. The choice of indoor and outdoor pool was appreciated and no closing hours of indoor pool meant late night swim was an...

Just 5 minutes walk from Valleta city gates, and the main bus terminal, the location is fantastic. The pool has a superb setting, overlooking a harbour and marina area, with some historic buildings as a backdrop. We had a quadruple room (basically a double room interconnected to a twin room). Rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and well equipped. The... More

We had a room with a view over the harbour. It was so relaxing sitting on the balcony in the morning or evening; very restful indeed. The facilities in the room were excellent. The pool and surrounding area are spotlessly clean. The choice of food at breakfast was excellent and the staff very helpful. The location is fine with the... More
