The cities of Malta have a habit of looking quite shabby. So did a lot of the hotels until a few years back. Recognizing this fact and not wanting to become a cheap ugly holiday destination, the Maltese government decided that new hotels were only allowed to be built if they are 5 star hotels. Since tourism really boomed the last few years, ther are a lot of relatively new 5 star hotels to be found on Malta.

The hotel we stayed in was the 5 star Grand Excelsior hotel just on the border between Floriana and Valletta. The hotel has a great pompous lobby. It is the size of a hangar and is decorated with bell boys, a marble floor and 2 majestic stairways. I liked it a lot.
