We stayed at the Excelsior in April with my son, daughter in law and 2 year old granddaughter and we all had a lovely time. The buffet breakfast was amazing. There was everything you could want and the staff were very helpful. The outdoor pool was not open but it would be to cold anyway, but the indoor pool was ideal. The room was very nice and we had a balcony overlooking the front of the hotel so we had sun on it most of the day. Nice stroll up to Valletta to work of the big breakfast
My husband has stayed here twice now and is coming back in September so it must be good
We were there for a minimal amount of time but were impressed by the hotel's cleanliness and the attention to detail. As a renovated old building, there are limits to what can be done to enlarge rooms or washrooms, but if you want an ideal location just inside the remarkable city of Valetta, this is it.
If you are not like the thousands of other tourists who go to Malta to party and hang on a beach, then stay here for the real life of an ancient city. Great harbor views and maybe an upgrade to a balcony like i received!!

Nestled in the harbour of Valletta, the affordable British Hotel is one of the landmark hotel in the Maltese Capital City …More
We had good advanced email contact from the owner advising us about late check in and transport options and costs from the airport. We felt wanted.
Friendly and committed owner responsible for the conversion of dilapidated heritage buildings near the centre of Valletta. The self catering appartment in which we were housed was part of small hotel which was across the street - breakfast self service on the roof of the 6 room hotel which has been lovingly and eccentrically restored. Some great decoration and architectural ideas in the presentation of the building and all the rooms. A wonderful place to strat the day but a lot of stairs to get there.
Breakfast with good range of foods for 3 out of the 4 days we stayed here, the other day there was a shortage.
A few teething problems; bedside lights were not working, sparse breakfast supplies on first day and the kings size bed had a slightly eccentric response to my 18 stone making sleep an uphill task.
Picture of John Cleese at reception is a clue to service standards - enthusiastic, committed and entertaining!
We would certainly go back again if the bedside lights were fixed. This is just the type of accommodation and entrepreneurial commitment to restoring Valetta that is sorely needed and deserves encouragement.
Great restaurant just around the corner in Old Bakery Street - Omerta - great cooking and great hospitality.
Easy access by foot to the delights and history of Valetta
Located on a narrow peninsula, little has changed since the Knights of St John built Valletta in the 16th century. It remains one of the world’s finest fortified cities and an architectural masterpiece, home to the majestic Grand Master’s Palace, a magnificent cathedral, national museums and various sites interpreting the city’s rich history. Don’t miss the panorama of Grand Harbour from the ramparts. Busy by day, Valletta is quiet by night.
