I stayed in The Excelsior for 3 nights in May 2012. Everything about this hotel screams luxury and sophistication. It's setting is wonderful with superb facilities including the beautiful pool area overlooking the waterway. Sitting by the pool watching the yachts drift home on a Sunday evening was glorious.
Very attentive staff in The Excelsior, opening doors, greeting you with a smile each time. Check in was effortless. Our room was beautifully appointed, very clean with a wonderfully comfortable bed and great bathroom. Downside perhaps was the shower being over the bath and as I stepped in to the bath a whacked my forehead on the towel rail fixed to the wall - could have been my eye but luckily not.
we had a beautiful mixed continental breakfast each morning witha wonderful selection of fresh fruit and traditional hot food.
We ate in the restaurant and had drinks in the bar each evening. Again the staff were attentive but not overly so.
The hotel itself is within easy walking distance of Valletta town centre - 10 minutes easily. A bit of a clinm up the hill but once you have that out of the way it's a gentle stroll to the shops.More
