Have stayed at the Excelsior several times and for weeks at a time. The hotel is very comfortable. The personnel are an asset displaying all that is good about Malta. The serving staff in the morning are experienced, energetic and greet you with a genuine welcome. The staff in the lobby are well trained and sensitive. The cleaning team gets the job done. It must be recognized that this is a hotel in a mostly holiday resort - it is not New York, London or Hong Kong where the standard of expectation is that of full pay business traveler. The environment is relaxed, spacious and still exceedingly good. The hotel has a great vista over the Marsamxett Harbour, overlooking marinas and a good bit of history. The outside pool is large and even in prime season not overwhelmingly crowded. Swimming in the sea is possible and a delight. Other times in the year, there is a beautiful indoor pool. The rooms are spacious and up to date. All rooms have an interesting view. As another comment has said, the carpet cleaning could be better managed. Food is very good. The chefs at breakfast are friendly and accommodating. Snack service is good and dinner during the week is delightful. The hotel's Sunday buffet has a very good reputation on the Island. Consequently, it is very well attended and represents a venue for local family celebrations. There may be quieter alternatives on the Island. The hotel's location is almost uniquely great: it offers great walking access to Valletta with an increasingly diverse restaurant population of very good and value cuisine. Floriana enables easy transport to anywhere in the Island. The hotel area is always quiet. Like children, Sliema, St Julian's and Paceville can be seen but not heard. All in all, an excellent base for a visit to Malta.
