Reviews for Grand Hotel Excelsior
Room cleaned every day, spotless. Breakfast and all meals superb. Swimming pool with two bars and use of a small beach if your bothered. Waitress service was very good. Valetta is a safe and interesting place as is most of Malta and the weather in May was lovely.

Pleasant, good-value stay in February 2017 not far from city centre (beware the steps, if on foot). Quiet over the four days we were here in February but I imagine this hotel will get v.busy in peak season. Grateful for a slight room upgrade. Room only, we had breakfast in Kingsway and dinner in Old Bakery St (wonderful).

If everything before the word BUT is to be discounted, I shall start with the word BUT. But the steps up from the hotel to the main road, some 90 in total, I know I counted them and climbed them take away from the attraction of staying at this hotel. Which really I cannot fault. The rooms, the service, the food, the bar, the views, the staff all bang on the money but (there is that word again) the steps will sort out any hangover or over indulgence in the wonderful dining rooms. To compensate for this the hotel does have a free car service into town every day at 1000 but as far as I know that is your lot. You can negate the steps by walking up the smooth access road from/to the hotel, again pretty steep unless you are a mountain goat to Grand Siege Road. Or book a taxi. It is only a short walk to Valletta once you have surmounted the steps.

We spent a week in Valletta and the hotel is ideally situated near the main entrance to the town. The only drawback is the 88 steps you need to go up when leaving the hotel to go to the town but the hotel will run you to the top in their taxi if you ask. Apart from that the hotel provides excellent service, entertainment at the bar in the evening, and a good pool and cafe area for the daytime.

Lovely hotel, we think the best in Valletta ( we did look round another one but the pool was at the end of a very long garden) The steps (89) out of the hotel were a killer, my calves! Coming back was ok. Yes, I know they have a shuttle bus but once in a morning (10am) and back at 4pm is not enough! We had to go into Valletta for breakfast, so 10am was too late! The room was lovely, go for a sea view as it's worth the money, lovely veranda overlooking the harbour and pool. Rooms not a sea view overlook the entrance to the hotel or worse! Best hotel in Valletta x
