Why Stay At Grand Hotel Excelsior

Malta's Grand Hotel Excelsior is a 10-minute walk from the island's walled capital city, Valletta.

The Scoop

Travelers who head south of Sicily to the 122-square-mile island of Malta go for the mix of cafés and rocky beaches and the incredible Maltese history. The best place to stay? The Grand Hotel Excelsior, which is within walking distance of Valletta, the island's 16th-century capital city, and the destination's only luxury hotel. Although the city is known for its stately churches that tower over cozy street cafes, the property itself is more streamlined. The exterior is reminiscent of an all-white cruise ship, and the indoor pool and spa feel like a modern cocoon. Act like a local and forgo the hotel's private beach in favor of the adjacent Marsamxett Harbour, the departure point for yachting excursions in the Mediterranean.

Insider Tips

Cab fare in Malta can add up quickly—save some euros and buy a one-day visitor's bus pass to explore the island.

The hotel's complimentary shuttle brings guests to Valletta proper, and a transfer also means avoiding the steps from the city center.

Preferred Airport

Arrive at Malta International Airport (MLA) which is approximately 6 miles from the hotel. Anticipate 20 to 30 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.

Why We Love Valletta

Though Malta has plenty of history—from 6,000-year-old Neolithic temples to the bastions built by the Crusade-era Knights of St. John—some of the best attractions are au natural: snorkel in Paradise Bay to the north or relax on tranquil Hola Beach.
