Right on the waterfront of St. George's Bay and a 5-minute walk from the sandy beach, the Corinthia is a 5-star hotel with an on-site spa and 5 swimming pools on luxurious sea-view terraces.
Score from 622 reviews Very good
Set within Valletta's ancient fortifications, the Osborne Hotel is a 5-minute walk from Malta's St. John’s Cavalier and St. John’s Co-Cathedral. The rooftop swimming pool provides great views.
Score from 711 reviews Very good
In the center of Malta's city of Valletta and 215 yards from the harbor-view promenade, the Grand Harbour Hotel features free Wi-Fi throughout and a terrace. The front desk is open 24 hours a day.
Score from 1018 reviews Very good
This 1920s-style hotel welcomes you with live piano music in the lobby. Surrounded by 7 acres of gardens, it is next to the Triton Fountain in Valletta's City Gate Square.
Score from 359 reviews Excellent
Best place to discover Valetta and its history and beautiful view over the harbour.
I did not like the fact that children under 12 were allowed in the gym and sauna. In fact there was a lack of supervision in the area. Coffee was very bad Lack of rubbish bins in the bedroom Lack of lighting in my bedroom. .
Extremely elegant hotel in superb location. Couldn't ask for more!
The facilities in the hotel.
Prices for a room with a view are a rip off. The standard rooms overlook a wall.
All was perfect. I stayd there before and i will again. Very nice breakfast
We stayed 10 nights at the Grand Hotel Excelsior. It is a great location. Very convenient for accessing Valletta and there was free parking For our rental car . The staff was very helpful if we needed anything. I would highly recommend this hotel .
the comfort, the very pleasant helpful staff. Enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again
breakfast coffee not as good as the coffee in the lounge. Couldn't eat in the hotel the first few nights as we did not have half board - New Year and busy. The weather also bad the first few days and we had to go out to eat. Provision more than bar snacks should be made for all residents
The breakfast provided a huge choice of delicious food
- only 10 min walk to Valletta - friendly staff - clean beds and room
- elevators are a little old - cleaning needs a lot of time (my room got cleaned at 3 pm) - room service menu limited - shower's design, no water pressure
1) The shuttle that picked us up in the rain got the window stuck down so we were wet the entire way to the hotel right off the bat. 2)We were delayed going home and had to extend an extra night at the hotel. This required a room change where we were rushed out by noon due to incoming guests. We were told to leave our bags in the room and when we returned in the afternoon, they would be waiting for us in the new room. When we returned 7 hours later, there were no bags in the new room and they had to send someone to find our bags because they completely lost track of them. They finally found the bags in our still unoccupied previous room that we were rushed out of. 3) The carpet was stained and dirty. When I called to complain that it needed to be cleaned and that particulates on the carpet from the previous customers as well as party popper trash on the balcony left from new years, we were argued with that the rooms were cleaned between every guest and that the stained carpets would soon be replaced. 4) The hotel did try to make amends by sending a complimentary bottle of Maltese wine to the room, but it was the same bottle that we already had included in both the old and new room rates, so it was our 3rd bottle of mediocre wine sent to the room in 2 days. A few minutes later while showering before dinner, they came again with a 4th bottle of the same wine, (I'm assuming they didn't communicate) that we had to turn away for surplus wine. This isn't so much a negative since they did try, but nerves were frazzled at that point. 5) The late night menu is just a bunch of premade sandwiches that have a bunch of sauce and other things. We tried to go simple with something as easy to put together as ham and cheese since none of the premade items sounded appealing, but the request was denied. (5 stars?) 6) We went to the hotel bar for afternoon tea, suggested by the concierge, only to find that it was cancelled. They would serve us tea and told us to find a...
inside swimming pool open 24 hours
- excellent bed, really 5 star - spacious room - very good WiFi - convenient location - free parking - good in-door facilities
Hotel staff struggled a lot with a number of guests. This is a large hotel and in peak seasons staff is apparently much loaded. As a result - some acted smiles through the teeth or long waiting times for a table service were not uncommon. In terms of food - all was good to very good but not great. All in all we have had impression that this hotel tries hard as a 5-star but lacks of attention to execution of service, details such as real personal customer care.
Room clean and very comfortable, excellent food as usual. Staff very good.
Loved the hotel,its location is unique.the staff very welcoming and helpful always with a smile.a big well done for the New Year Eve dinner in the Admiral. Big well done to the chef and his brigade.
Room overlooked a service entrance
The location was excellent, the views from the Harbour View Restaurant breathtaking, the breakfast buffet fantastic-enough food to keep one going all day long! the staff at the Reception desk very helpful and friendly, Hot mulled wine and mince pies on Christmas Eve in the Harbour Bar lovely.
While my room-563 was very comfortable and well equipped it was rather chilly. Sometimes travelling from one floor to another by the elevator was a bit confusing-the elevator seemed at times have a mind of its own!
Comfort, style, efficiency of staff, beautiful warm indoor pool, everything available, towels,gym, anytime of day. Staff particularly friendly and pleasant, smiling and gracious. Malta most interesting place, and then to wander back to the Grand Exel was the icing on the cake! So convenient also for bus and taxi. Everything close by.
Having to leave eventually! Would love to have stayed and stayed.
The entire experience was first class. No complains whatsoever.
The location is central and convenient enough, but there are quite a few stairs and a short distance uphill walk from the hotel to Valleta's city center. A challenge for the elderly and disabled.
The views, the location, the hotel was immaculate.
The location is very good, close to the city center Hotel is nice and the staff is very willing to help and find solutions The rooms are nice and well equiped
The heating system didn't work and it was cold in the room, however I received an additional electrical one in my room The breakfast was the same every day Noisy from the night club which is on the harbour side (loud music till very late in the night)
Room was luxurious, beds and bathroom were great, staff excellent. Swimming pool , gym top of the line Location cant be better
carpets in the rooms were worn out ..not fit for a 5 star there should be a play room with table tennis table, card games etc to keep the kids busy when its raining outside....there is no such room as on date
Location, swimming pool, breakfast. Room was ok, but for the money we paid could've looked better.
Reception staff not very friendly - we asked them to book a taxi for us to go to the airport and they sent us to a separate desk where there was a big cue. It was our last vacation day and we were on a hurry to go to Valletta to visit some more places, we told them so and asked them only to write down our request&departure time and hand it over to the taxi desk later, but they completely refused so we had to find our own taxi on the street in the end as we didn't want to waste time on waiting in front of a desk. By the way, the taxis on the street are cheaper than the ones you get to&from the hotel!!!
I made a wrong reservation at first for taking Nov. as Dec. I didn't realize this until I got the billing message from the credit card center. I was totally freaking out. But after communicating with the reservation manager, they kindly modified my reservation information and didn't charge extra money. Very nice!
Food excellent Overall great place to stay.
No showers in the spa area have to shower in your bedroom. Sauna should be included in the price, not haveing to pay extra. Fan did not work in the bathroom.
Possible to swim in Mediterranean. Very good breakfast and dinner.
