“Excellent for a winter break”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

In November the hotel was ideal - quiet, well located, good service, - excellent concierge service - an absolute bargain in a wonderful country!

It was swelling! We had a great time, enjoyed the SPA, perfect hairdresser, variety of dining options, fantastic pool area. Even though it was not warm enough to stay by the pool we enjoyed the fantastic view of it. But most of all their friendly and smart staff made us feels very special. We were very surprised over the excellent service, and believe me we are picky. We even got a guided tour of the presidential suit! Next time we'll go during the summer, and for sure stay more than 3 days.

We have just returned from a 4 night stay at this hotel after reading reviews - yes you guessed it - on Trip Advisor.
Overall, very pleased. Good location right in the heart oif the action, and fortunatly the hotel is so well insulated against noise - 2 sets of double glazed balcony doors, that it was extremely noise free....
Breakfast was simple but good with eggs etc cooked any way, and drinks were reasonably priced. Staff very friendly and helpful.
Only niggle really was the indoor leisure facilities. All vey nice, spacious and clean, but didn't really get the balance right. The pool was cold - not really what you wanted in November, the sauna and Turkish bath wouldn't get hot enough to really enjoy, and the steam room wasn't working. Gym was fully equipped and good though.
So, good break, peaceful and reasonably priced. If they sort the leisure side out, would be great.
Would we back - yes..

I stayed in different hotels in Malta and found this one as the best deal for me.
Great for my business trip and very good to travel with the family as it is close to all the main attractions bars and restaurants.

Staying on a B&B basis (for 21 nights) – the breakfast was excellent (I have never seen such a vast choice, which included a chef preparing omelet, pancake, eggs etc, to order), available from 6:30am to 10:30am every day (no rushing to make breakfast), with plenty of tables (no queuing). Being a coffee lover, I can vouch its quality – with a large variety of teas available.

Rooms are large, each with a balcony – ours was overlooking a central area with a view of the well-manicured gardens. The balconies are in the style of a cruise ship, giving a very appealing aspect. The rooms have a bath, plus separate shower cubical. Our room TV was a 32 inch led/lcd (Philips) flat screen (see list of available channels at time of visit – being the typical international news fare offered by hotels). The room bed was a generous 1.8m (6ft) wide, provided with a light-weight duvet.
The in-room fridge is of the type that automatically registers the removal of items for billing purposes – making it unsuitable for personal use, with no spare space.

The hotel gym (which is free to use for hotel guests) is the largest I’ve ever encountered – with more machines than I could count. An indoor pool, which is free to use for hotel guests, is somewhat small in size (as is to be expected). The hotel roof-top pool with panoramic views and sun-beds, is only available to hotel guests, with a charge of €20 per person/day or €10 after 1pm.
Hotel internet access (on your own laptop) is charged at €2/30mins, €15/day – but there are a number of internet cafés close by, charging significantly less – and if you have your own mobile device, many free to access wi-fi hot spots.

Located close to the many bars & nightclubs in Paceville, the hotel is far enough away not to be bothered by the noise. The main town/bay area (St. Julian’s) is a short walk away, with a regular bus service to Valetta and other parts of the island (although I would recommend hiring a car, for the extra freedom it gives). A word of advice to those less mobile, the area close to the hotel has some quite steep inclines – some being stepped.

In my opinion the Intercontinental (Malta) fully deserves its 5* rating for its excellent buffet breakfast and overall standard of facilities; in-room, general areas and staff helpfulness – in fact the staff could not have been more helpful to us during our stay.

At the risk of appearing to be a member of hotel staff – the fact that they respond to every Trip Advisor post shows that they care about the guest experience. Therefore besides posting your comments on this site, let the staff know of any issues, and based on our experience I’m sure that they will do their best to put things right.

Stayed at the Intercontinental Malta as part of a special deal offered via the Easyjet website. had a Garden Room which was very quiet despite the proximity of local nightlife.

Hotel is of very good quality (very solid 4 star .. maybe not quite 5 as rated) with friendly staff and cleanliness is of a high standard.

My deal included breakfast which was good quality and had a wide choice including meats/cheeses, continental and full english. Staff friendly and attentive.

Indoor pool and sauna very relaxing and roof-top pool and gardens areas pleasant. Just note that the gym/squash courts are an additional charge and there is no free wi-fi (although nearby cafes & bars in Bay Street Centre offer free access) although if you buy internet access in your room connection is fast if a bit pricey at EUR15 for 24 hours.

Varied number of bars and restaurants in the hotel supplement those in the local area.

Recommend the Intercontinental as a good base - St Julians and Sliema are within acceptable walking distance and handy for Bay Street Centre and bars/restaurants in Paceville.
