InterContinental Malta
Ranked #12 of 33 Hotels in Saint Julian's
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 7 July 2011

The I is the perfect combination of a business class hotel coupled with all of the facilities and amenities that holidaymakers expect.

We had an 11th floor executive room overlooking the panoramic pool and the courtyard of the Al Fresco restaurant. Contrary to another report we heard nothing of the music when we were in our room.

Room was huge with 2 double beds, a fantastic bathroom with a massive tub and separate shower. All the usual mod cons (hairdryer, iron, tea/coffee, minibar, cable tv with Sky 1/SS1/SS2/Sky Living etc)

Public areas very clean and contemporary.

Breakfast (huge buffet style) was pretty amazing. Can't think of anything more anybody could want.

Location is interesting as it is in the heart of the bar district in the Paceville part of St. Julians. Don't be put off by this but I would try to get a room that doesn't overlook the front of the hotel as I could imagine it might be a little noisy.

There is a small mall opposite with Adidas, Marks and Spencer Food, Hilfiger, Mexx, McDonalds (free WiFi as not free in hotel), Hard Rock, and a few other decent restaurants.

There is a small but busy sandy beach about 100 yards from the front door of the hotel and there is a private section for residents.

Roof top pool is great and there are plenty of sun beds. Towels are free too.

The bar by the pool is actually good value especially for the great food. Pizzas are really good and so too the wraps and club sandwich.

Take a walk in the evening over to the next bay (Spinola Bay) as there are some great value restaurants especially Papperazzi!

Carry on around the coast from Spinola for a couple of Km's and you will get to Sliema where there is a great new development, Tigne Point with a good Mall and some cracking eateries.

The change over to Arriva bus services from the iconic yellow buses that took place on Sunday 3rd July 2011 not entirely seamless but I reckon they will get there. Sad to see the yellow buses gone though (only the well maintained ones though as some were real clunkers)

Would recommend the I. Clean, modern, good service, good pool, good food, close access to buses etc.

Try it, you won't be disappointed.

Encouraged by reviews on Tripadvisor, we booked a week’s stay at the Intercontinental. All requests regarding our room, e.g. as high as possible and with sunshine on the balcony in the afternoon and evening were met.

Before we travelled, we requested an upgrade to the “Club” level and we were very happy with our room, 1311. It was also well away from any late night or early morning noise, as the Intercontinental is in Paceville, the island’s clubbing capital.

The upgrade was well worth the cost if one enjoys breakfast in a more leisurely fashion, a few complimentary drinks before dinner and a high vantage point from which to view the surrounding area. The free internet access in the Club lounge was also useful.

The hotel marked a birthday celebrated during our stay with a cake and champagne delivered to our room. This was a very nice touch and much appreciated.

All aspects of service, front desk, cleaning, bar and meal service at the Intercontinental were excellent. We had two evening meals in the Al Fresco restaurant and one at Paranga and the food quality and service were of a very high standard. The live music in the Al Fresco was always a welcome accompaniment.

Our room could hardly be faulted. It was beautifully furnished and the bathroom was large with both a shower and a bath. Our only criticism of our room, a fairly minor one, is that the lighting on the balcony was situated too low and/or was not bright enough to enable one to read in comfort when the sun had gone down. This lighting, over which the guest seems to have no control, seems to have been provided more to enhance the appearance of the hotel than for the guests’ convenience.

A criticism of the Carissa Wine & Sports Bar would be that whilst guests may watch Sky Sports 1 and 2 in their rooms, these popular sports channels seem not to be available in the bar. This is probably due more to commercial reasons than technical ones. It is something that the hotel may wish to address. However, during the Wimbledon fortnight, tennis lovers (not I) seemed to be well catered for.

Finally, we were very happy with our choice of the Intercontinental for our second stay in Malta, an island we like for its people and its history, and we would definitely return to this fine, almost faultless, hotel.

There arent many InterContinental or Crowne Plaza hotels across the world that I haven't now stayed in, and to date , the I.C in Malta rates amongst the very best.
Why ?;
Very simply, it is due to the excellence in service provided by all of the staff
In fact the courtesy and attentive nature of the I.C Malta team was very much in evidence weeks before my visit, when responding to my initital email enquiry about the rooms and local facilites.
Holly and Cornelia from Guest relations responded promptly, professionally and informatively to my enquiries, and then took it on themselves to go that extra mile and provide an additional surprise for my girlfriend, whose birthday it was during the weekend.
Throughout our stay, nothing was too much trouble and every I.C Malta staff member we met or just passed by in a lift or corridor, greeted us with a friendly smile and a few generous words. I really can't stress enough the high level of approachable professionalism in this hotel and this filtered right down from the senior managers and host staff in the Club Lounge to the housekeeping staff.

The hotel itself is based on the typical IHG Group structure and offers comfortable 1 roomed accomodation right up to the roof top suites and terraces. On this occasion we had taken a Terrace Suite and this 2 roomed accomodation featured a living area, seperate bedroom, one large bathroom and also seperate w.c & wash area. Each room had a balcony with table and chairs but the real benefit of this grade of room is the additional large terrace area with sun loungers and tables for outside dining.
The Club Lounge access accompanying this grade of accomodation was a real bonus and served the usual high standard of business, rest and refreshment facilities. The terrace area outside the Club Lounge gives a pleasing aspect of the surrounding town and a brief glimpse across the Bay and small beach area. Again, whilst this is a typical I.C facility across most hotels in the Group, the real difference was in the approach and friendliness of the staff, all of whom took great care to ensure all guests using the Lounge were catered for and looked after.
The location of this hotel appears to have been subject to some elements of criticism in previous reviews, and this is understandable bearing in mind the environment it is situated within. However, anyone using this hotel must do so knowing that this area of Malta is a tourist hotspot, and due to the very limited space and landmass available it should not be a surprise to anyone that life is a bit of a bustle around and about the hotel. In all honesty, anyone blaming the hotel for the existence of life around it must really take a look at themselves and perhaps question their own level of awareness and research about where they choose to travel to.
But in saying all of that, the majority of rooms at the hotel enjoy a North /East facing aspect and with it a decent overview of the Bay and those above level 10, a really nice view of the excellent roof top pool area.
There are numerous more high points to mention regarding the facilities in this hotel, including the excellent choice of dining facilities, especially the unique sea front restaurant less than 150 m from the Hotel itself. It looks, feels and acts like a seperate entitiy to the hotel, with its tables sat virtually on the water and its atmospheric lighting and bar areas, but it has the convenience of just having to give your name and room number to settle the bill.

In all, this is a great hotel. Sure some very small improvements could be made here and there, but overall a FIRST CLASS stay !
Thank You ! ( Holly, Cornelia & team)

Stayed here for the 2nd time 18th june-25 june and once agian had a great time. The hotle was clean and the staff friendly. Stayed in a room overlooking the sports bar, but didn't get any noise from it due to the curtains.

Spent a lot of the time at the Pool Bar and would like to mention Brendon and Kenneth who were friendly and funny throughout the whole week.

rooms were cleaned everyday to a high standard and any help we needed the concerige sorted it.

Will be looking to come back for the 3rd time soon.

I have just returned from Malta this morning and had a Fantastic stay at the Intercontinental Hotel. The hotel was superb such friendly helpful & attentive staff. Our Ambassador King Suite was beautiful and pristine we wanted for nothing, the bed & pillows were to dream on. The Club Lounge was very inviting and the breakfast/high tea/pre dinner drinks were exceptional and always service with a smile. I have never felt so special and pampered in the way I did here and I would recommend this hotel to everyone. I will be back in the future to experience this all over again. Wonderful pool area, and highly recommend the Eastern Breeze restaurant. Thank you so much for such an enjoyable relaxing experience!
