We decided to have a hotel close to the airport for our last night in Malta as we had a reasonably early flight (7.45am). This big hotel, near Valetta looked very nice. After leaving our previous hotel we did try to check in early (12noon) and appreciated a room may not be available and were happy to leave our luggage...

We had THE most relaxed and enjoyable stay at the Excelsior Grand Hotel. The room, with sea/harbour view, was great. It was large and comfortable for two people to just kick back and relax which we needed to do! The stay for the week cost the same as other mid-range hotels (we got a special deal) and is walking distance...

I stayed at the Excelsior Grand Hotel on a cool early spring day. Unfortunately I arrived very late and likewise needed to leave early. I ordered room service at, which at a that late hour was limited to only a few choices, such as a sandwich. However, the rooms are very nice and the view to the sea is stunning....

Very good location. Wonderful service by staff .Public areas with high maintenance level. But....no double glazing in the room thus there is lowed wind whistle which make a terrible noise. The food at the hotel is medium.

Stayed there for one night before going on Cruise. Lovely large bedroom, comfortable bed, nice bathroom with toiletries. Check in was efficient with free courtesy drink on arrival. Staff very friendly and pleasant. Spent most of the day in Valletta which was in easy walking distance from the Hotel.

Spent 5 nights staying here while visiting Malta. Absolutely fantastic hotel - yes there are a few steps to get up to the road to walk into Valletta but if you eat/drink enough delicious Maltese food like we did then the steps will be necessary to work off the food!!! We had a lovely spacious room with a huge king...

Arrived for 5 days over Easter on a 35th Anniversary stay, from the beginning the staff were polite and professional, check in - no bother, all amenities explained and helpful advice given. The room was spacious (room with full sea view and balcony) very clean and a pleasure to stay in. TV, yes only 28 channels but how many do...

This hotel although a little dated with a worn exterior has some very nice features including what I thought was a nice bar area and very comfortable rooms with plenty of space. My experience included these pros and cons: Spacious room with sitting area and comfortable bed. Used room service twice for morning coffee which was prompt and friendly. Staff...
