We came to Malta for our first time for a 4 day break and chose the Excelsior Grand mainly because of availability, as Valletta was heavily booked. When we got there we realised that our visit coincided with the European Heads of Government Conference which explained hotel room availability issues.... sadly many of them were staying at this hotel, so...

We stayed in the hotel for four nights with two kids. We booked a family classic room and it was perfect for the full family, two very spacious rooms on the first floor. Staff were very attentive and polite, breakfast was good and the hotel facilities were excellent. We really enjoyed the indoor swimming pool, this was the main reason...

The hotel is perfectly located on the waterfront just outside the walls of Valletta itself. The hotel is grand in every respect albeit a little dated in it's appearance. We couldn't have asked for me during our stay, we received an excellent welcome at reception, superb service from the concierge team and those serving breakfast and supper. The lounge bar...

Old and majestic queen of a hotel. The entrance with the massive stairs and grand windows is impressive, lobby is extensive, staff is attentive and rooms are vast, the sports and spa facilities are also spacious. Everything is up to date and generally well maintained. There's a little bit of extra mile missing from here and there. The breakfast table...

Booked for a short break at this hotel. Staff are exemplary and rooms and general hotel are top quality. Food is available 24/7 and the views across the bay are beautiful. Good location for walking distance into Valletta.

Our lovely room was on the 8th floor and had amazing views, thoroughly recommended. Breakfast was served on the 4th/5th floor, the service was excellent and a special mention must be made to Eileen who went out of her way to make the experience better. We used the indoor swimming pool and once again received excellent service from the staff...
