Excelsior Grand Hotel, Malta

Conveniently located at 5  to 10 minutes walk to Valetta’s main gate( Ask the concierge for the short-cut) and bus terminal, the hotel offers resort-like features like Spa, Pool and Mini-beach. The hotel is quite a big, there were a lot of people during my stay but I never felt it was too crowded. Save perhaps during check-in, I had to wait 30 minutes to avail of my room after official check-in time.

I recommend this hotel for families, couples and History buffs ( you’re literally with the bastions of Valetta). The pool is quite grand and the setting is beautiful. You and your kids would definitely find something to appreciate here. You have a good choice of restaurants with Valetta centre just minutes away.

The hotel has a private Marina, and I have to say that I enjoyed my night promenades by the sea, the complex is quite big!

The room that I had was big, clean and convenient, though some would find the room design a bit dated. One thing which is odd is that you have to order what you want in the mini-bar in advance. I think that defeats the purpose of the mini-bar, which is to have standard drinks and food without moments notice.

During my 5 day stay what I really have to note is the hospitality of the staff, they have made my stay quite enjoyable. They’ve been really professional, I didn’t experience any faux pas from their behalf.

Note: I didn’t give 5 star to the Spa as you have to pay extra for the Sauna and the Steam bath.
