My husband and I stayed at the Grand Hotel Excelsior for 10 days in October 2013. This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel and it has never disappointed. Our suite was large, very comfortable and very clean. The bathroom had a full size bath and separate shower. A turn down service was provided every night.
This hotel is perfectly located within walking distance of the entrance to the capital, Valletta with fantastic views of the second harbour, Marsamxett. The hotel in fact physically straddles the fortifications built in the times of the Knights of Malta. One can walk the whole length of the Valletta fortifications starting literally from the Excelsior.
We were there on both occasions on a B&B basis, with the breakfast provided more than adequate to serve for the whole day.
The staff at the Excelsior is very well trained, and are extremely proud of both the Hotel and the service it, and they, continually provide. There was never a problem with any of the staff, from the time we arrived at Reception, followed by excellent housekeeping, unbelievable bar and restaurant staff, fully complemented by the Gym, swimming pool and beauty salon staff.
It is difficult to name all the staff we met and interacted with. We however, cannot forget the unbelievably good service and detail to attention given to us by Marthese, whom we met when we were redirected from the main breakfast (due to unusually high demand) to the Executive Lounge. She is certainly one of the Hotel’s jewels, set in an already overly bejewelled crown that is the staff of the Excelsior.
