Situated at a short walk from Valletta's main gates and yet at the seaside offering a possibility to have a swim in the Mediterranean, location is THE ASSET of the Excelsior (you should be aware though that there are a few steps to climb on your walk to the centre, this might be an impediment for less mobile guests). We also appreciated the very spacious and well kept room and bathroom (seaside view). The bedding is excellent. The pool area is good and there is wifi access on the whole grounds of the hotel.
However we were not happy with the fact that our bathroom was equiped with a floor mat for only two days out of six . Even after I had explicitly asked for a new one we were not helped (can this be true in a five star hotel ???).
Breakfast is quite OK and varied but the coffee is simply undrinkable. If you want a decent coffee (expresso or cappucino) they charge 2,50 € or more !!! Also the quality of the fruit at the breakfast buffet is not very high (tasteless watermelon and melon in the summer). I've been in hotels of a lesser rating where breakfast was of a much higher standard. Be aware of the fact that the à la carte restaurant is not at all à la carte but a large buffet. You can find a lot better in Valletta.
