There is no better located hotel for a Valletta visit. Though the Excelsior is probably a nicer property the long, vertiginous hill to front door is a deal breaker for this correspondent, especially during scorching summer months. We stayed on the third floor and though the rooms have been renovated it is certainly not a five star hotel, though they don't charge five star prices either (except in the bars!). Rooms were well appointed and perfectly serviceable though no touches to make one swoon. Pegasus Brasserie was quite good, not so the dinner at the buffet which is to be avoided at all costs; multitude of better choices within 5-10 minute walk! The gardens and pool area are perfectly pleasant though, like the rest of the property, need some care and attention. We all agreed we would stay here again as long as the price was right. The "mature" average age of most of the guests made us feel quite youthful...
There is a taxi rank right outside and it is definitely cheaper to use these, as opposed to the hotel-organised ones, but be sure to check and agree upon a fare.
