Welcome to our 5 star Hotel in Valletta


We invite you to Live the Grand Life at the Grand Hotel Excelsior. The Grand Hotel Excelsior, a 5 star Hotel in Malta, is two minutes away from Valletta, Malta’s capital and a UNESCO World Heritage site. Valletta can be described as a living experience of Baroque architecture, dotted with quaint cafes, and over 25 churches, a testament to the centuries-old grained Catholic faith of the Maltese nation.

Sixteenth century fortifications embrace the Grand Hotel Excelsior and its olive gardens making it the only 5 star hotel in Malta nestled within historic architecture. This is a unique opportunity to re-live Malta’s rich history whilst unwinding during a Mediterranean Luxury Escape.

This Luxury Valletta Hotel is blessed with magnificent views of Marsamxett Harbour & Fort Manoel.

Marsamxett Harbour is the northern of Valletta’s two natural harbours on the island of Malta, separated from the southern one – the Grand Harbour – by the Valletta peninsula. The harbour is dedicated to yachting and sailing and also hosts the Msida Yacht Marina. The Grand Hotel Excelsior offers its own yacht marina which is exclusive, to its hotel guests and is home to Malta’s Annual Boat Show.

Fort Manoel is a fortification which stands on Manoel Island, to the north west of Valletta, and commands the entrance to Marsamxett Harbour and the anchorage of Sliema Creek. Its ditches and walls are formed from the native rock of Manoel Island.  The fort was built by the Knights of Malta between 1723 and 1755, under the patronage of Portuguese Grand Master Manoel de Vilhena. In 2010, it underwent major restoration work to repair the ravages of time and damage sustained during the Second World War. It served as a location for the shooting of the climatic scene of the episode Baelor of the TV series Game of Thrones.

Grand Hotel Excelsior’s prime location allows for easy access to all tourist locations around the Maltese Islands. The main bus terminus provides services to all towns and villages and is only a few minutes away from the hotel. For the more discerning traveller the Grand Hotel Excelsior offers its own private tours with our executive cars. Complimentary transfers to the city centre of Valletta are offered on a daily service at 10.00 hours and 18.00 hours.

The Grand Hotel Excelsior offers elegant and luxurious suites and a portfolio of deluxe rooms enjoying magnificent sea views which only Malta can offer. Free Wi-Fi internet is also available in the hotel lobby, public areas and guest rooms.
