Grand Hotel Excelsior
Wonderful - all good.
Third time I've stayed here. Great location, great facilities, great breakfast but ugly building!

Grand Hotel Excelsior
Restaurant was excellent, but would have liked a wider choice of food in the bar area. One does not always require a major meal in the evening . After a few days we found ourselves taking ferry to Selina for variety of shops and water attractions.

Great location, comfy rooms
Hotel was wonderful, great location. Service at breakfast was patchy, sometimes taking 20 mins to get a coffee

Nice hotel just outside Valletta itself
A very good hotel which is not in Valletta itself (which is actually very small!), but literally just outside (5/7 minutes walk to the gates of the town). Note that the hotel has no facilities close by, so having breakfast included is essential, unless you want a 15 min walk to find some! Also the walk to the gates is all uphill and quite a few steps for people with less mobility, but fine normally. Taxi from airport is 20 euros one way with the hotel. Breakfast is very good, prices for other meals not too bad. It is a large hotel, so lots of people, but not over crowded. All rooms have balconies, but may want to ask for one in the shade or sun depending on your choice.

Hotel in an excellent area only 5 mins walk into Valletta.We chose this hotel as it had car parking and was 5 star rated.although built in 2007 it is now looking a little tired in the rooms but they are still very clean and roomy and they were in the process of repainting the front.the rest of the hotel interior is very well presented.great views over the harbour if your lucky enough to get those rooms although we had a room on level 2 which had a part harbour view and park historic wall view.the balcony was a decent enough size to seat 2 with a small table and our balcony had the sun from midday until 6 which was a bonus if you didn’t fancy the pool area and just wanted to relax with a beer😀.All in all a very enjoyable 6 days and would definitely recommend this hotel but in my opinion is a good 4 star not quite 5...
