Most of the negative points in this review were mentioned to the hotel but i will start with the positive. The concierge and travel tour desk were fantastic. We wanted to book a special trip for my husbands birthday and we chose to use one of the hotel's tour but they allowed us to change locations. The driver, Joseph, was fantastic we even made a few changes once we were on our way. On returning to our room later in the day a birthday card a a bottle of wine was waiting. Thank you. It was a lovely gesture. We decided to have a late lunch in our room and room service was excellent. Our room was on the 10th floor with lovely views. The room was cleaned daily to a good standard. Unfortunately the service elsewhere in the hotel was not so good. We had drinks in the bar most evening and coffee and had to wait a long time and the staff were forgetful. The service at breakfast was also very slow we had to keep asking for tea and on one morning had to ask 3 people for more butter. We had lunch a couple of times at the Tikki Bar and again the service wasn't 5*. On one occassion I had to complain about the state of the ladies cloakrooms in the lobby/bar. This should not happen in a 5* hotel. One more small thing we find it very hard to relax on balcony or have the balcony door open at night as the people next door were smokers and the smoke was coming straight across to us. There should be designated smoking rooms. The hotel needs decorating especially the outside as it is the first thing we see. Overall we enjoyed our visit to Malta and would love to stay at the Excelsior again as it is in a fantastic position but only once we knew all problems had been ironed out.

We recently returned from a week's stay at the Excelsior Grand. Fortunately the weather was delightful for early October averaging around 24 deg C, which was ideal for sightseeing activities. We used the efficient Buses for getting around Malta and Gozo and various payment schemes are available. Don't miss a visit to Mdina as its history stretches back some 4000 years! The hotel desperately need some TLC. The front of the building requires cleaning as it has dirty black stains (mould?). I guess that a gang of decorators could sort this out in a few days and make the front of the hotel much more respectable. And the swimming pool has missing tiles which also could be repaired without too much trouble. However what really lets this 5 star hotel down is the quality of the breakfast. The breakfast area is large and very busy, especially at peak time (9 am). Unfortunately the coffee, orange juice and scrambled eggs are of a poor quality and exhibit signs of unnecessary budgeting by the Management. In detail: The coffee tastes like instant coffee. The scrambled eggs do not taste of fresh eggs. The orange juice tastes like diluted orange squash and is horrible! A new Management team could sort out these shortcomings easily!

Stayed here for 4 nights at the end of Sept. The hotel is dated and does need a refurbishment but was still nice and comfortable. We have a sea view room and the room was really comfortable. Huge big king bed, nice big flat screen tv. Empty fridge which cold be topped up. Bath and walk in shower. All staff we encountered were very friendly. Others have commented about the breakfast and it being chaotic . Try to get it included in your rate as I'm not sure I'd pay for it. Staff at breakfast were run of their feet but we always received our tea without waiting and had a substantial breakfast to start the day. There was 2 weddings on when we stayed at the hotel and the lobby got crowded at times but it didn't really disrupt our stay. We went swimming in the outdoor pool and it was really nice however my partner did end up cutting his foot. I had noticed that somebody else had mentioned this before in a review. I think management should immediately look into this to ensure no other guests cut themselves. The lobby bar was always busy and quite nice. We had cocktails their a few nights. Our main reason for choosing this hotel was the location to Valletta and the bus station to get around Malta. The location for us was perfect to travelling around Malta. We had a nice relaxing stay and would recommend if you get a good price with breakfast.

As you might expect from a 5 star hotel, the Excelsior is quite luxurious. The pool is very nice and the location is spectacular. The rooms are well appointed and the beds comfortable. The food in general is also good quality. There are one or two aspects that detract from the feeling of quality though. On checking in you are asked to leave a deposit of 50 Euros for every night of your stay. So, for example if you are staying a week, you will have 350 EUR blocked from your card. It could well be then, that you don't actually have access to more cash for purchases outside the hotel, thereby forcing you to eat and drink in the hotel outlets (and charging it to the deposit). This seems pretty much like an underhand trick. (Obviously most hotels ask you to leave your credit card details in case of incidental expenses, but this is the first time I've had a hotel block large sums from my account. You'd think a 5 star hotel would trust its guests more than that. The other slightly odd thing, though less troublesome, is that instead of a standard mini bar, you can order a package of items to fill the mini bar, for which you must pay for the whole package (upwards of 30 EUR). No opportunity to just have a single drink from it, you need to have all or nothing. In general these financial factors left me with a slightly bad taste. It's a shame, because this aside it is a very good hotel

We arrived early and our room wasn't ready but we were able to store our luggage and go for a drink (and some tasty snacks) in the Tiki bar and explore this vast hotel. Reception called us when the room was ready, and as we were checking in somebody brought us a very refreshing drink. Our room was lovely, clean and cosy. It had a full sized fridge, a hairdryer, plenty of hanging space, a safe, a terrace overlooking the pool and a nice big TV. Breakfast was included with our room rate and the buffet was amazing, so much choice! Freshly cooked omelettes and pancakes, fruit, cold meats, fresh bread, cereals, yoghurts, full English...I could have sat there all morning. Lovely friendly staff, a short walk from the centre of Valletta (just one warning: you have 88 steps to climb when you exit the hotel to walk into Valletta so if you have mobility issues this should be taken into account). Would stay again.
