We had booked a panoramic room with access to the club lounge and on arrival we were escorted to the club lounge on the fifteenth floor where our check in was dealt with whilst we enjoyed a glass of complimentary wine. The room was large with a good bathroom and views overlooking the pools and out to the bay. Try to avoid rooms overlooking the street as the hotel is right in the middle of the main "drag" of bars and restaurants.

The club lounge is lovely with a large terrace for eating breakfast outside. Access also gives you afternoon tea and free drinks in the evening.

The stars of the stay, however, were the staff. Without exception and regardless of their role they were all incredibly polite and helpful. They turned a four-star rating into five stars.

I read many of the reviews for this hotel before booking a short break in June - seemed a mix bag. Admittedly the area was busy and built up but we knew this up front.
When we arrived we were offered a very reasonable priced upgrade which included a better room overlooking the swimming pool and use of the Club Lounge.
Both of these were most definitely the way forward. Rooms which do not overlook the pool would probably be lacking to be fair.
The Club Lounge was certainly the best option - wonderful staff who were incredibly attentive. To be able to sit on the 15th floor terrace and have a relaxed breakfast was a great start to the day. Afternoon tea was certainly a winner and the complimentary pre dinner drinks and canapes made a great start to the evening.
We found the staff everywhere really helpful and welcoming whether it was in the hotel, Club Lounge or on the private beach. The best part of the holiday though was discovering The Water Biscuit - we ate there twice and both times were delighted with the food and service so well worth a visit and at a reasonable price - particularly if you 'check in' on social media and get a 10% discount
Overall a good break but appreciate the built up area is not for all.
PS the gym was the most amazing gym we've seen with so much equipment and classes too

My partner and I spent four nights at the Intercontinental Malta and really enjoyed it as a base for exploration. Our room and bathroom were clean, comfortable and spacious and the hotel had excellent pool facilities to splash around in when the day became too hot to explore. The hotel staff were all incredibly friendly, saying hello and checking how our stay was going whenever the saw us- we were allowed to check in early hassle free with no extra cost- something we both really appreciated when tired from a very early start. The hotel is really well located for buses to the rest of Malta, a pleasant walk to Sliema and the surrounding bay and for numerous clubs and restaurants. The downside of this is that it can get a little crowded and noisy in the surrounding town in the evenings, but I actually thought that the room was really well sound proofed even though our balcony overlooked part of the strip and a bungee machine- when the doors were closed you didn't really notice the sound. We actually quite enjoyed sitting out people watching in the early hours- so this hotel is a good option for people watching!

Just back from my holiday in Malta. We stayed for a week in the Intercontinental in a superior double room. The room was on the tenth floor overlooking the garden. The room and hotel were excellent. We had breakfast included in our room price. The breakfast in the garden was buffet style with so much choice it was fabulous. The outdoor pool area had lots of seating. My partner used the gym facilities and said they were very good. The indoor pool and spa were excellent. Malta is a beautiful island and our stay was made even better by the quality of the hotel and helpfulness of the staff.

Spent a week at the fantastic InterContinental Hotel in St Julians, Malta. Perfect room, perfect Wi-Fi. Lots of restaurants inside the hotel. Outdoor pool, indoor pool, spa. And the greatest hotel gym in the world, probably. All personnel extremely helpful and friendly. One that we will never forget is Joseph - a 'walking Maltesian Encyclopedia' who helped us every day with travelling suggestions, questions of all sorts and daily planning. Joseph also seems to know all bus lines at Malta by heart - impressive. Also, we will remember Peter who solved one little problem we had in a very efficient, effective and most pleasant way. Thanks,Joseph, Peter and the rest of the staff. The hotel is highly recommended.

We recently spent four days on the beautiful island of Malta where we stayed at the InterContinental in St. Julian's. Accommodations were excellent! Upon check in, we were offered an "upgrade" for 20 Euros a day, giving us a larger room on an upper floor, overlooking the garden. Included with this charge was an outstanding buffet breakfast that included, eggs, pancakes, fruit, cereals, etc....whatever you could want was there. This wonderful breakfast was served in a beautiful garden, from 7:30 - 10:30.
Going to Malta?? We recommend the InterContinental highly.
Only only drawback.....the beach is not on the property but down the street. But there are two pools, indoor and out,
