Grand Hotel Excelsior, Floriana, Malta
Highly recommend this hotel
We had a fabulous sea view room that was spacious and comfortable. The view was wonderful. The staff were friendly and helpful and the location of the hotel makes visiting Valletta easy as well as most of Malta as the major bus terminal is an easy walk.

Exceptional hotel
Pros: 1. The hotel lent us a couple of universal adapters for our stay (free of charge) as we didn't realize Malta were on the UK power plugs and not European! 2. We hired a driver for the day for our group (220 euros) to see the main island of Malta and he was amazing. 3. The buffet breakfast is out of this world. So much variety, good quality, and stations to make onelettes, pancakes and waffles. Cons: 1. The outside of the hotel looks dated and dusty, but the inside is great 2. The service staff at the Tiki bar (adjoining the pool) were terrible. The first time we ate their attitude was rude and unhelpful. The food was not only the most expensive in Malta but also the worst quality. Drinks here are fine but I would not recommend eating here. Another day we were in the pool less than 10m from our towels, cameras, phones which were placed on an empty chair (the entire bar was empty of patrons so I didn't think it would be a problem), but a staff member took our things, moved them and hid them behind something, then when I asked if they had seen anyone take our belongings (thinking they were stolen) she rudely and bluntly said "this is bit the hotel. This is a bar/restaurant and not the hotel swimming pool bar". The bar is located right on the edge of the pool. Was not happy with her justifications or rudeness and lack of consideration about theft concerns

Very Good8.0
Great location
Great location - just a 5 min walk (uphill) to the main street of Valletta. There is also a car park at the hotel which is great. It is a huge hotel, attractive lobby area and nice bar. The pool area needs some work - and a lot more loungers but the staff were very helpful. Also nice to have the option to go in the sea as they have made a little beach. Great cleaning service - topped up shampoo etc and came in every night to turn down the bed- nice touch. We were on the 10th floor so had a brilliant view - although the balconies aren't secluded so watch what you wear! Breakfast was good - a wide choice, omelets made to order etc as you would expect. Overall I would come back here - thanks.

going down hill
Been going for the last 6 years, slowly starting to look more and more tatty, this year we have seen at its worst, odd cheap blue plastic sunbeds mixed in with old tatty stained beige sunbeds The floor tiles are filthy and the pool boys are lazy, glasses left around all day and not being collected. It is however still the cheaper of the two large hotels in Valetta and the rooms are ok, just the pool area could do with a makeover, food not great either, snacks are better value We will not be going back there again
