The Excelsior Grand Hotel Malta is located in Valetta on foot of the center. It has more than 400 rooms, several restaurants, a lobby bar/cafe with a magnificent view of the harbor, a spa with hairdresser, fitness centre, and indoor and outdoor pools (with sun terrace). The hotel was in public areas on the first glance spotlessly clean. The types of people are both from the age, as well as from the nationalities mixed. There are also conference rooms and …  read hotel review

Unfortunately, the five stars in my opinion not justified. In addition to a mediocre breakfast at a rather uncomfortable we were allocated table (, although the window tables were 2/3), in which one of the plate was pulled away, while we were still eating, it was primarily the bathroom bone of contention. The water in the shower didn't drain, the wash basin also. The summit was the toilet: the flush used, appeared in the toilet bowl to brown particles, wh …  read hotel review

Very nice hotel, I like to stay there during my business trips. I travel to Malta very often and since I found Excelsior hotel, I do not go to other. Walking distance to Valletta center, very convenient location. Staff is always very friendly and acting professionally. Hotel Excelsior is always nice to come and spend several days. Bewertung lesen

    3.0

    The rooms are big enough, land side with a balcony, but the furniture was dark, carpet ancient, stained, wavy. Mattresses = surface hard, kopfpolsterung to wall torn. Blankets = quite old, thick, heavy (for the climate) and old-fashioned. The water rushes, the drain 'gurgles'. A large ' sonnen'duschdüse with einhebel -regulation. Unsatisfactory toilet flush without brush. On the floor, my wife found hair, the days not disappeared or vacuumed. Mold in some tile grouting, broken tiles and the shower drain not very clean.

  • Service
    4.0

    Mostly very friendly restaurant service. Morning good coffee and tea service with cans, eggs and omelets service. Partially high competence (the rest. 'kon-tiki ' on the water... For example gekonntes filleting my fish). On the bill for signing one must already even longer wait. Cocktail quality variable, depending on bartender. Reduces service evaluation = room service: 't optimal clean: hair on the floor and mold on tile grouting. Also strange bed-cover service. Surrounding the basing everything deep covered as in a 'winter sports-hotel'.

  • Gastronomie
    5.0

    Breakfast buffet good to excellent, with fruit, cereal, eggs and omelets fried service after english-american style, coffee bits. Throughoutly friendly and hardworking staff with coffee and tea serving service. The lunch or dinner at the pool bar ' kon-tiki ' is worth the money, maltese wine suggestions are to be enjoyed with caution (very different, rather 'bitter and säurebetont'). The beef 'burger' there is a sensational portion for the money.

    Simply class 5 * location, peninsula la valletta, great views, next to the marina and tigné -developing, 'parallel' on the other, northern side of the crusader port. Close to a large roundabout with a fountain and bus station (after everywhere on Malta!). 10 minutes to the entrance bridge to the old town with seat, fortress, churches, and so on. Many, also good restaurants. Close to the hotel also have access to shuttle ferry to sliema/st. Julian. Private sea access with divided swimming area. Large, varied swimming pool and picnic area with many beach chairs. Shopping, nearby less.

    Without pool or music acoustic irradiation, but very relaxing. As the 3d 'television' overlooking entrances into the marinas with passing sail and harbor tour vessels, as well as on the open sea with passing ferry/cargo and cruise ships (port on the south side of the peninsula, about 20-30 minutes' walk). Views heischender outdoor pool and varied liege zones with enough pool chairs and shaded spots (surcharge). There is also a beautiful indoor pool, as well as a fitness room with exercise equipment. Spa treatments and hairdresser as well as in the offer. Direct access to the sea with divided swimming area.

Great hotel. Outdoor and indoor pools, private beach to swim in the sea and gym. 5 minutes walking to the entrance of Valletta and the bus station to travel anywhere in Malta. Dozens of stairs to access the hotel (situated in a "hollow"). Bewertung lesen
