“Good choice in Malta”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

The review is based on a club room:

This InterContinental is a good choice. It`s located in Saint Julian`s.

It`s just steps away from hop-on buses, restaurants and small supermarkets where you can buy snacks&drinks at a decent prices.

The club rooms are great. They are of a good size, are located on the top floors and have a balcony (as most standard rooms as well).

They are good for allergic persons since there is almost no carpet in the rooms.

The bed is comfy.

The club lounge.....

....is good as well, the breakfast& afternoon tea service there is excellent.

There are coffee machines available for self-service.
Lots of different soft drinks and beer available troughout the opening times from 6.30 am - 9pm.

5 computers with fast internet and a printer available.

Service is always available but not intrusive, what I liked a lot. Some people might see that as a lack of service...so don`t forget, if you need anything simply ask and they do the best to accommodate you.

Negatives:

The restaurant (room service) is a let down. On my first day I ordered a rib-eye steak.
What I got was a thin, tough platter of meat that had nothing to do at all with a rib-eye steak.
As side dish they served like 8 thick & almost rar fries. Thankfully they served it with some bread. That was the only thing eatable. You get that for only 19 Euros.

(Price would be fair for a real rib-eye steak) That was my only dinner there, went to a different place after that experience).

Check in was not very smooth
I have booked `Smoking King`- room. Booking was at the Intercontinental website. However he was very suprised at check-in when I asked for a smoking room. He claimed not to have one. Only after I asked for a room in a lower categorie he `found` one...

Electronic minibar, charges you Items imediately (15 seconds) after removal.

Housekeeping dosen`t seem to care much about the electronics. TV was not working and both phones were flashing (Message light, even there was no message)
Thats not how I expect a 5* Star Hotel to hand out a room.

Overall, a good Intercontinental Hotel with a good standard.

Get a good rate, don`t try the restaurant and you will not regret your choice.

3.9/5 Recommended.

As I used the hotel only for business aims I cannot evaluate SPA, swimming pool... I may say that the structure is quite new and pretty good to see. My Room was large and confortable with a small balon on an internal garden. Excellent bathroom with shower and bath, just with a bit of "too used" aspect.
Nice & available staff even at 4 am for an early check out.
Ony point to notice : breakfast not at level of cost. Even if a lot of things were available the average quality of food was indeed not excellent. Sweetes better than salt food.

Booked a Club room and was not disapointed. Check in was a breeze, dropped luggage at front door, went up to the 15th floor Club Lounge to check-in over a coffee.

The Club Lounge was fantastic, an adequate selection for breakfast, aftrenoon tea and evening canapes, and of course a good selection of Alcohol. The staff in the Club Lounge were exceptional - very friendly and helpful.

I Booked a Club room and was upgraded tio a suite - one of the few with a sea view. I would recommend asking for a room overlooking the inner courtyard, its worth noting that none of the rooms have sunrise/sunset views as the hotel faces north(ish) and none of the rooms possibly apart from 12-15 have distant views, just a view of a pleasant leafy courtyard.

Yes the hotel is very near the night clubbing area, but this is easily avoided. The hotel is close to bus routes and within easy walking distance of Spinola Bay.

One restaurant I would recommend is the Blue Elephant Thai in the Hilton at spinola Bay - excellent.

All in all an excellent choice and I would return.

My wife and I spent 7 nights at the hotel.
Excellent service in most areas
Only problem was the Al Fresco restaurant ordered a steakmeal which had mushroom sauce included on menu. When I asked where sauce was I was told I only ordered the steak!Also the vegetables were cold. May have been a new waiter? Told would have to wait 10minutes if I wanted mushroom sauce.
The Eastern Bar was excellent and would highly recommend.
At reception the staff were very polite and very helpfull.
The rooms were kept very clean and tidy .
I would definately stay again

We recently spent 3 nights at this Hotel. The check in was busy upon arrival but the staff ensured a very short wait. The customer service was excellent, friendly and helpful. This excellent service was everywhere within the hotel from valet parking, porters, cleaning, restaurant and reception staff. Whilst checking in we were asked if we were in Malta for any particular reason and I mentioned that it was our anniversary the day we were leaving. To our surprise on our last night we arrived from a day of sightseeing to find a lovely complimentary chilled bottle of champage and a selection of small desserts. On top of all this was a handwritten card wishing us a lovely anniversary. Very touching and personal and appreciated. I must also mention the amazing gentlemen who played piano in the bar, Godwin was a charming and very accomplished pianist who delighted in playing any request you asked for. It really was a delighful evening. I highly recommend this hotel.

Friendly and patient staff, a luxurious place together with a hearty warm atmosphere. Couldn't ask for more. While the hotel is quite large and prestiged, the service goes down to a personal level. None of your requests will be taken forgranted. Indeed, a great value for money! :)
