The hotel is lovely but the access to the hotel is down a steep hill or dozens of steps not friendly for the older person . Also the shuttle they promised to valletta was not. Operating. As they stated. . It is a 20min walk to the city gate and 15 min walk back as it's downhill on the way back. Loved the view with lots of boats going back and fore

Ramona, ie1 night family trip

The hotel felt like an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous or Dynasty; very grand in a 1980’s way but hasn’t been updated since. Rooms were a little shabby but the throwback to that era made it fun. It was quieter than usual because of Covid so much of the hotel was closed off. The pool was open and it is the best hotel pool I’ve ever been in anywhere in the world. Their private man-made beach area was great as I love to swim in the sea. The breakfast buffet was amazing.

Ideal for couples but also for families with children
Our stay at the Grand Hotel Excelsior was really GRAND. We booked a one night stay to celebrate our wedding anniversary and as soon as we arrived we were treated like royalty. We had a room upgrade and a complementary wine and all the staff were really friendly both at the reception and also in the restaurant and also near the pool. We had a pleasant stay in this hotel and I look forward to other stays in this hotel in the future. I highly recommend this hotel also to locals who want to spend special quality time as a couple and also as a family.
