Located just a short walk from the Unesco World Heritage city of 'Valletta', the 5* Excelsior Grand Hotel is your premier destination as an accommodation choice for Malta's capital city. 

The world 'Heritage' city of Valletta is not just the capital of Malta, it is also a centre of vibrant culture and wonderful architecture, combining the modern with the traditional. A majestic city such as Valletta deserves a deluxe hotel offering the very best in service and grand design. The Excelsior Grand encapsulates the feeling of being in luxuriously modern surroundings yet safe in the knowledge that the tradition and Maltese culture of Valletta is only a stone's throw from the hotel.

Situated directly on the waterfront of the beautiful Marsamxett harbour, the hotel stands proud against the imposing back drop of the fortified bastions of Malta's capital city. The hotel has wonderful areas of sun decks and terracing that offer total peace and quiet combined with magnificent views of the harbours and open seas.

The Excelsior Grand Hotel is just a short walk from the main centre of Valletta, bringing this old city of culture and heritage within touching distance of the Hotel. The entrance to Valletta, known locally as 'City Gate' really is what it claims to be and is the gateway to a city rich in architecture and heritage. A myriad of Baroque palaces, museums and old taverns are waiting to be discovered. The famous Manoel theatre is located in a small side street of Valletta.

The main terminus for the islands route buses is located directly next to the entrance of Valletta, therefore guests of the Excelsior also have the perfect opportunity to explore Malta and its neighbouring islands without having to go too far from the hotel in order to find a bus connection.
