This hotel ticks ALL the boxes. The service, the food and the cleanliness of the hotel cannot be faulted. Our stay was fantastic as a result of the care that staff exhibit in all departments. It may be said by some that the hotel needs updating to some degree, but its strength lies in its staff and the organisation as...

We had THE most relaxed and enjoyable stay at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. The room, with sea/harbour view, was great. It was large and comfortable for two people to just kick back and relax which we needed to do! The stay for the week cost the same as other mid-range hotels (we got a special deal) and is walking distance...

We booked a week at the Grand Excelsior just before Christmas. As we arrived at the hotel my heart sank somewhat; as you approach the initial impression is of a somewhat run down hotel. When you actually look closely it’s not the case, but there is a very dark green algae on parts of the outside which is very noticeable...

It was my fifth stay in the Excelsior Hotel, and I'll always want to return there when staying in Valletta. As usual, I was not disappointed during my stay. The hotel is very classic, for some tastes it would need an update, but the personnel is very polished, of great help, and professional. Rooms are very big, comfortable and clean,...

My wife and I went to Malta for the very first time to celebrate her birthday and our wedding anniversary. We stayed at the Excelsior & were so pleased that we did so. The room was very spacious with a lovely balcony, all members of staff were polite, professional and friendly. Breakfast was brilliant, but obviously it does get busy...

We decided to have a hotel close to the airport for our last night in Malta as we had a reasonably early flight (7.45am). This big hotel, near Valetta looked very nice. After leaving our previous hotel we did try to check in early (12noon) and appreciated a room may not be available and were happy to leave our luggage...
