Grand Harbour Hotel
Ranked #4 of 15 Hotels in Valletta
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 20 July 2011

This was our second visit to the Grand Harbour . Having read someof the negative reviews for the hotel we cannot understand what people expect.
The hotel is is a wonderful position with marvellous views of the Grand Harbour Valletta . The staff are excellent and did everything they could to make us welcome.
For what we paid for our stay we thought it was fantatic value for money - our rooms were clean , the beds comfotable and the showers worked - breakfast was simple but adequate and the views from the windows - priceless.
Valletta is a wonderful city and for anyone wanting to experience it the Grand Harbour Hotel is a great place to stay.

reading the other reviews most people will realise the furnishings etc of the hotel are somewhat dated . what the heck . the staff are fine,its clean and the price is good but its the location and view from the terrace that are the real deal .I am lucky to have travelled extensively throughout europe and can assure readers that the view from either your small maltese enclosed balcony or the roof terrace is most certainly one of the finest in europe . its quirky and the breakfast is basic but it is taken in the most delightful room in the hotel, there really is little to complain about here just let yourself slip back into the 1970's for a night or two and get on the roof terrace

Room Tip: without harbour view room less attractive offering

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and have no complaints. The staff were helpful, the hotel was clean and comfortable and the views are spectacular. It must be remembered that this is one of the cheaper hotels in Valletta and is not 4 star. There is so much to see and do in this glorious city that to stay in your room and moan about what is not provided only shows a very sad and unhappy tourist. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who wishes to have a base from which to explore Valletta.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view

Very friendly family run hotel. Amazing view of Grand Harbour from our room, dining room and roof garden. You could spend the all your time watching the boats going past if you wish. Valleta is a facinating 16th century world heritage site built by the knights templers. There are plenty of restaurants and bars near by to visit.
As all the buses on the island start from Valletta and no journey is more than 40 mins, you can explore all of Malta while staying in the city.

Grand Harbour Hotel in Valletta has the best views across the harbour entrance and the enclosed balcony was a place you did not want to leave. The warm and friendly welcome from all the staff made our holiday feel extra special. While the Grand Harbour does not meet five star quality, its staff, its welcome and ongoing care and attention to guests certainly do.
Better than any holiday resort.
Thank you all.

Room Tip: Book in advance - standard room with seaview
