Very Good8.0
The location is great and the view is top notch. For only a 10 year old property it feels pretty dated.
Trinity, us2 night romance trip
Grand Hotel Excelsior, Floriana
A Brit cruise ship on land.
It's a nice 4 star hotel that is 10 years old and looks like a 1940's British cruise ship. The decor is very frumpy and old folk Brit. The food was good, the rooms were comfortable and clean.
