Reviews for Grand Hotel Excelsior
We were looking into a deal for this hotel, but found we could book it cheaper ourselves. We did not regret it. The staff are exceptionally helpful, not begrudging or surly as so often in fancy hotels, and not ingratiating. There are wonderful views over the harbour from the breakfast room an outdoor pool open in November (wasnât tempted) and an indoor pool open 24/7. The breakfast buffet is excellent, with emphasis on quality rather than quantity, although the coffee is only ok, not wonderful. I was particularly impressed that they told us the tap water was drinkable, but since it is a little salty (all the water on the island is provided from desalination plants as there are no natural springs) they brought 2 bottles of imported spring water to our room every day. The rooms are spacious with no feeling of stinting and all the facilities you want are there: fridge, electric kettle, safe, TV , 2 sorts of armchair one with stool etc etc. We did not take the (expensive) tours run by the hotel with personal chauffeur but they were just as happy giving us information about ferries, buses, and the local cheap electric cabs! Highly recommended

Just returned from our second visit to this wonderfully situated hotel overlooking one of the many harbours around Valletta. There is a price to pay for the location and that is the 80 or so steps up to the road after which there is just a short walk to the entrance to Valletta (and what an entrance) passing Malta's main bus terminal and the local taxi rank. There is a hotel shuttle twice a day and one can always walk up the road rather than using the steps. The material used to build the hotel is showing signs of wear and being discoloured. The rooms are varied in that a number are rather tired and in need of either full refurbishment or major repairs. Our room had a socket coming off the wall, a broken hairdryer plug with a bare earth. The bathroom needed much of the grout redoing and the wash hand basin tap refused to provide hot water etc. Some rooms have showers over the high sided baths. These showers are like snakes that take on a life of their own when switched on. Getting the water flowing into the bath rather than on to the bathroom floor is a work of art. The staff, although at the end of a long tiring season, smiled and carried on as ever. Katie in Reception, Melissa at Concierge, a certain young lady from Russia in the Harbour Lounge and Carmen the turn down lady are real stars of this hotel and made our visit just that bit special. The restaurant, with it's great views, is good enough to tempt most to stay and enjoy the buffet in the evening. At some 30 or so euros the food is varied, plentiful and of a very good quality. Tuesday is Indian night and Friday Asian (China, Vietnam etc.) Breakfast can be busy but you will be greeted by Maritas and she will pass you to her "friend" who will conjure up a table when none appear to be available. They are a real act. Each room has a balcony but some face the entrance and their view is of the hill and they do not have the sun in the evening and many are overlooked by people coming into the hotel. Rooms on the lower floors (this is an upside down hotel, with reception on the 6th floor) facing the swimming pool may be overlooked by diners in the restaurant on floor five or those having breakfast on floor four. There are the usual spa facility and indoor and outdoor pools. One major point to watch, whether having a drink/snack in the Harbour Lounge or dinner in the Admirals Restaurant, is the bill. Check what you are signing for. We were overcharged for our wine one evening, had an other couple's dinner added to our room's bill and had a young lady in the Harbour Lounge trying to add an other couple's drinks to ours. If you are going to stay for dinner make a reservation and enjoy the wonderful views from a window table. It is a lovely hotel in a lovely position with fantastic staff. Say hello from me and tell them "we will be back".

We stayed here for a few nights. Lucky to have a room with a fabulous view and a balcony. Bed was huge with good quality linen. Breakfast was great with lovely harbour views. Decor quite full on and heavy in communal areas, and we did think mid November too early for Christmas decorations! Only gripe was bubble bath sachets were impossible to open! Decent traditional hotel with all you would expect!

My wife and I have just spent 8 days in Malta staying at the excelsior grand Hotel, rooms excellent, kept spotless clean every day, turn down service every night with chocolates on the bed. The lobby bar very buzzy with background music most nights and the best bar manager (Jason) I have ever experienced, making the best cocktails right in front of you, his knowledge about all drinks was second to none. Hotel pleasantly situated just a few minutes walk to the city centre of valletta with wonderful views across the harbour. IF they are doing deals I would recommend this hotel. ð ð

My cousin and I recently stayed at the Excelsior Grand Hotel in Malta. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay from the exceptional staff to the delicious food. The Sunday international brunch was amazing! The highlight of our visit was by far our private tour of Gozo with David Gutteridge. David was so informative and knowledgeable, we had the best day touring the beautiful island of Malta and taking the ferry over to Gozo. He was so accommodating and in tune to the kind of day we were looking for. It was a day to remember! It's a must do!
