"Wonderful!"
This one of the best hotels I have ever stayed at. Nothing you asked for was refused. The staff was always friendly and pleasant at all times. The food was fabulous, the pools were beautiful, just a wonderful experience.

"Wonderful Stay"
The hotel is very impressive. Room was very large (by European standards) and well-appointed. Thick bathrobes for use by the pool or after a bath. Good restaurant with very impressive buffets - both for breakfast and dinner. Grounds very nicely landscaped. Staff very pleasant and helpful. I can be very picky and the only annoying thing was an off-key and loud piano player/singer in the bar above the restaurant who intruded into dinner one evening.

"Make Valletta Special"
We only stayed at this hotel for one night, but I so would have loved to stay longer to take advantage of everything this beautiful place had to offer....room...pool, spa....health room. restuarants. The staff could not have been better. The location is perfect for all Valletta activities. They are within walking distance.

Excellent location a few hundred yards from the city wall entrance. Mind you do have to negotiate the steps up to the main road level so you may need to take your time. The hotel itself is calm and spacious the staff are plentiful and friendly. The room was large with very high ceilings and a balcony facing the sea. The housekeeping was exceptional complete with turndown service each night plus towel replacement. Breakfast is buffet style with great variety of foods. The hotel boasts an indoor and outdoor pool with views over the water plus plenty of seating enabling you to relax.

The view from the breakfast restaurant was superb,of course the cuisine as well. The staffs were highly trained and helpful. As the road navigation to Mdina by one of the staffs was so precise and proper that we were able to get there and return to Valletta with no problem at all. We have fully enjoyed the stay at Excelsior in MALTA .

My wife & I went for our anniversary and loved it. It was convienently close to Valetta, and they have a shuttle service that will take you all over the island. The spa is fantastic, and the pools are nice. The "private beach" isn't much, and I would hardly call it a beach, but that's not too big of a deal. Definitely would stay here again.

we have just returned from our stay at the Excelsior Malta and feel quite overwhelmed with the grandeur ,without being too opulent,and comfort of this lovely hotel. The rooms were lovely and spacious with fantastic shower and bathrooms. we were fortunate to have a balcony with a lovely outlook onto the grand entrance of the hotel which was all kept clean and in good order. The dining and lounge areas were amazing with wonderful views of the harbour. We had a buffet on the second evening[asian night] and it was absoulutely out of this world, the chefs and their staff work incredibly hard to prepare and create such wonderful food to suit all tastes-it was WOW!And I must give so much credit also for the superb breakfasts that they provided to the same standerd every morning. What an amazing selection and everything was consistently clean, fresh and well presented. Last but not least, I cannot find the words to express my gratitude to ALL the staff involved who made the stay so wonderful. I have never met such curteous,helpful and friendly people. From the minute you arrive,you are greeted with a warm welcome from the courtier and front desk staff , whom promptely arrange a refreshing arrivals drink which I thought was a thoughtful idea for all guests. I must say that the staff on ALL levels are trained to a very high standard and it reflects in the service that they provde and they are an asset to the Exelsior Hotel. Many many thanks to you all. I have only one comment that reflected in my scoring for the rooms.. I know that nowhere can get everything right all of the time but I couldn't help but notice the beige carpets in the rooms were quite heavily stained in areas and also in the corriders by the door entrances. The carpets must be really difficult to hoover and keep clean for the domestic staff and wondered if tiled floors would solve the stain issues. Like I said, just a small observation in an otherwise beautifully decorated hotel.

Great location on the harbor, nice access to bus terminal, & easy walk into Valletta. Minor inconsistency with room care (coffee service, bed turn down), but only reason to not rate it perfect. I would stay there again anytime.

"This hotel should be downgraded to 3 star hotel"
Here are the issues: - Hotel looks shabby both from outside and inside - The staff is not well trained as it is supposed to be for a 5 star hotel - Hotel has strange rules imposed by the management - i.e keep minibar empty due to alleged stealing of drinks by hotel guests ( thus explanation was provided by one of the maids, when I asked) You need to order your drinks and wait until they will be delivered - it is better go to the bar then... - Food quality and food variety do not meet the standards of 5 start hotel - Services are not efficient - I had to wait over one hour to check in , even my room was booked weeks in advance and I arrived after official check-in time - The bar staff do not know how to make ice-coffee and they serve prosecco without gas

"STUNNING hotel in Malta!"
Wow, what an incredible place to stay! I never wanted to leave the room it was so luxurious! The price was fantastic, the service was incredible, with drinks on arrival and the staff trying to make our stay as nice as they possibly could. The foyer/lobby was HUGE, and had an amazing bar and dining area where you could look out of the windows and onto the stunning views of Malta. If possible, I would go back to Malta just to stay in this hotel (and never leave!). We got a shuttle bus that runs directly from the airport to the hotel, which I would highly recommend, it was rather cheap and made our trip so much smoother.

The Excelsior is a fantastic hotel. The room we were given had a full sea view, a view of the private marina and a huge balcony. The staff were all friendly, and made you feel welcome. The housekeeping was excellent, the room was spotless and kept beautifully while we were there. We enjoyed afternoons around the outdoor pool, which had loads of space so never felt busy. We enjoyed the breakfast choice and found the whole experience well organised. All in all this hotel is wonderful, better than the other 5 star hotel in Valletta which we have also stayed in.

"Excellent, except for ..."
This hotel is beautifully positioned, the food is good, the facilities also, and the rooms are good too. The staff are outstanding. My only real criticism is that the senior management seem to have a blind spot when it comes to hosting functions. After a great day out we went to the pool area only to find we were barred from the pool area and a wedding reception in progress. We were livid (as were many others we spoke to) as we planned a relaxing late afternoon by the pool, and there was no prior notice that residents would be barred from using this major facility. Although the pool was apparently not officially open until May (this happened on 19th April) it was nevertheless being used and even a waiter was made available to provide drinks. We later spoke to a couple who had a similar experience last September. It was hugely disappointing and it gave the impression that once the management had your booking and payment, they do not care much for their residents ... they have your money and just want to make more money, treating you without respect and like a second class person. But this was out of character as in every other aspect residents were extremely well looked after. What a shame to ruin it all by this lack of forethought and consideration. Surely this least they should do is inform residents in advance that a facility will not be available for a certain period.

"Great hotel"
We rate the hotel excellent on all categories above. All the staff are friendly, kind and decent. They also come from countries other than Malta and they are all interested in serving and engaging with people. The hotel was kept at a warm temperature. In the afternoon in early April, there appears to be a steady breeze across Malta, which can make one cold even though it is sunny. The warmth on entering the hotel was very welcoming. Another nearby hotel was weak on this score. Even though we did not have a car for our week, the car park is excellent. The external walk up those outside steps, to the bus terminus, keeps one fit! The tiles at the edge of each step should be coloured with a darker tile, than the ones that are already there, in order to stop missteps in the dark. In other words, the lighting is good but we did have one slight trip on the way down.

The hotel is well placed for transport. The Valletta bus station is only ten minutes walk from the hotel, making the purchase of a seven day bus pass (6.50 Euros) very worth while. The hotel staff and facilities were very good, with the buffet breakfast making a great start to each day.

We stayed at the Excelsior in April with my son, daughter in law and 2 year old granddaughter and we all had a lovely time. The buffet breakfast was amazing. There was everything you could want and the staff were very helpful. The outdoor pool was not open but it would be to cold anyway, but the indoor pool was ideal. The room was very nice and we had a balcony overlooking the front of the hotel so we had sun on it most of the day. Nice stroll up to Valletta to work of the big breakfast My husband has stayed here twice now and is coming back in September so it must be good

"Stunning hotel close to the centre of Valletta."
We had been told that it was an easy walk from Valletta Bus Station to the hotel, so we took the bus from the airport - very cheap and so much more reliable than pre-booked transport if you can manage - and wheeled our cases downhill to the hotel entrance steps (should have taken the car path ramp - there were an awful lot of steps). No problems booking in (nice complimentary drink) and were very pleased with the deluxe room with partial sea view - worth the extra - and, because it was quite late, raining lightly and we were tired, we found the bar and ate the all-you-can-eat International Buffet. The range of drinks was OK and the food excellent, if a little pricey. The staff were uniformly excellent throughout our stay with a special mention for the lady who ran the Business Centre who worked so hard to try to sort out what was happening to our return flight (Lufthansa and Italian ATC on strike). Breakfast buffet was as good as it gets (free with our room) bed was fine, free bottled water daily was appreciated and we had no noise problems day or night. On the other side, the walk into Valletta started with a stiff 10 minute climb up several flights of steps - picturesque, but rather tough (to avoid lugging our luggage up to the bus, we took the option of a taxi to the airport at the hotel's fixed price of 20 euros, a cheap no-hassle option), some of the outdoor attractions were still closed for winter, although it was often windy and a little nippy.

"Excellent Hotel close to central Valletta"
We had an excellent two nights at the hotel and had an unexpected room upgrade. The room and other hotel facilities were excellent. The location is close to the centre of Valletta and only a short walk from the bus station but the area is quiet and has good views. The hotel is built on a steep hill and the lobby is on floor 6. This means a steep walk up to the city which was not problem for us but would be a challenge for people with limited mobility. Also the walk to the centre includes crossing a side road with no marked crossing and a few metres along a road with no pavement. This can be a little scary given local driving style.

"Good hotel, pricey restaurant"
My fiancée and I stayed here in mid-February for about a week. Based on earlier reviews I expected a high class hotel whose glory had faded somewhat, which was pretty accurate. The room was larger than I expected, and the view from our 'partial sea view' room was really quite good. We had heard that anywhere in Valetta proper was likely to be cramped and damp, so opted to stay here instead. The Phoenicia would have been a bit closer (and more importantly level with the gate), but did not appear to have the same level of amenities (although we couldn't use the outdoor pool given the temperature). My main quibbles were that the restaurant was quite expensive compared to nice restaurants in the area (2-3x), and that initially crossing the street at the top of the hotel grounds lacks sidewalks and a crosswalk. It wasn't a problem once we got used to it, but is a bit intimidating at first. I also preferred to avoid climbing the hill more than once a day, which made ducking back to the hotel to change for dinner less convenient. There was a vague but ominous warning about drinking the water, and two 500 mL bottles of water were provided per day. We drank the water with no obvious ill effects (it tasted perhaps a bit of seawater), but it would be good to know exactly what the issue is.
