"not for families"
It's a lovely hotel with great staff but the location means it is unsuitable for a family. It's right by the strip clubs and night clubs.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Amazing hotel in a great location!"
We stayed for 7 nights, bed and breakfast and had a wonderful time. Staff were friendly and extremely helpful, the breakfast buffet was huge with great variety and the two swimming pools were wonderful- the indoor one in particular. The hotel is in a great location for the beach (the hotels own private area of the beach with sun beds, umbrellas and […] bar was a welcome change from the otherwise crowded, sandy areas of beach!), bars, restaurants and buses. Just be prepared that you may have to walk through the main 'strip' (Paceville) to get to quieter areas further along the coast. That said the location suited us perfectly and although one night we were able to hear the bass from one of the bar/nightclubs through our floor, I think this was because we were on the bottom floor and directly over it. It wasn't really an issue and there were no other disturbances. Overall we had a great holiday with a stay in an amazing hotel - I have already recommended it to my parents!

"Good and Comfortable"
Very Pleasant stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This hotel is great! Close to the bus stop. It has everything you need although St Julian's is not my favourite area, next time I would go nearer to Sliema or Spinola Bay. The concierge was extremely helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Quite disappointed with this hotel, thought the price was good for a 5 star hotel but was wrong.Had to put up with noise the whole week (gym music and construction work) and at the worst times- early morning and evening.What summed up the priority for the hotel management was the fact that they allocated a supervisor at breakfast to ensure there was […] absolutely no milk wastage!!!, which meant having to ask for it a number of times- very annoying and indicative of their 'bottom line/ profit-first' approach. Good points were comfortable rooms and reasonable prices for food and beverages. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Poor 4 not 5*"
In a noisy chav part of the island sadly. Also the pool furniture and balcony furniture is pretty poor, the pool towels are old and thin and the overall feel of the hotel is pretty average. Not a 5* more a bad 4!!! Stay at the excelsior grand. Much much better. Beautiful hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel in a good location"
Enjoyed the stay, the staff were friendly and accommodating. The rooms were clean, tidy and spacious, all things I wanted on my holiday.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Somewhere good to stay for a rest"
Shame a lot of the facilities were not available when we were there. Generally quite a good place to stay and handy if you want the night clubsGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK but could have been better"
Overall holiday was OK but mix up with room when first checking in as room with two queen beds not available. Upgrade was offered at 70 euros to a junior suite which had better views but still had only one king size bed. A single bed was brought in to remedy the two beds issue but was disappointed that original request was not met. Staff very friendly […] but communication could have been improved. Food was OK in most of the restaurants with the exception of the Waterbiscuit which had just opened and was excellent. Works were being done at the holiday whilst we were staying there but no notifcation when booking that works would be taking place at that time was given. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great hotel for any one"
The best asset that the hotel has is their staff specially the reception staff and the assistance given by the concierge team. The hotel has a diverse food menu that is serviced in about 6 restaurants and all as good as each other. While one have to pay some extra for the service in the hotel it was not that expensive to have most of our meals in the […] hotel compared with restaurants else where in Malta. The room service menu is some what limited but we did not use this except on arrival as we did arrive at midnight and all restaurants were closed at that time. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great hotel in the centre of St Julians"
Excellent hotel in the centre of St Julians. Good facilities and friendly, helpful staff. Large pool area with plenty of sun loungers and all clean and well maintained. We had a terrace suite which had two balconies and a terrace overlooking the pool. This gave us access to the Intercontinental Club on the 15th floor where we could have breakfast and […] refreshments throughout the day. The staff in the Club were very attentive and when we experienced a flight delay of eight hours they arranged for us to keep our room for the day and use the facilities of the Club until we eventually checked out. All in all an excellent stay and would recommend this hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not on the Beach!"
As the picture & introduction of hotel mentions on the beach, no, its wrong! Its not on the beach. One has to walk good 3 mins on a crowded public street to reach the bay. Yes, they do have a board of intercontinental on the bay, but its so crowded that one hardly goes there to enjoy sea. Next to the hotel is crowded paceville, where all young crowd […] floks in & there r numerous bars/ clubs / loud music. One has to pass through this area to reach bay. The whole mood of the street is party / loud music / cars / traffic , so dont extpect to soak in sun on the small beach that thay have on the bay! We checked in to hotel & there was no running water in the bathroom. It took them 30 long mins to solve the problem. Then they upgraded us to the better room & sent us a bottle of red wine. Room service is very average & no evening turn down service. Spa/ indoor swimming pool/ sauna / stream are very very average! Over all,the whole experience was ok! But I wud not stay again due to location. Its just not romantic!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel, shame about the location"
We had a mixed holiday, due to my husband's second degree sunburn (requiring medical care) and me catching a cold whilst in Malta. The weather was pleasant but very very windy for the first few days and we would urge other travellers caution in the sun because of this. The hotel itself was great and we had no major complaints although we asked to change […] room after loud music and drilling woke us up two mornings in a row. The breakfast selection was very good and service overall (including the cleaners) was superb. The main downfall with this hotel is that it is situated right next to a street full of strip joints with very loud music in the evnings and an ugly shopping mall right opposite. It therefore felt like we were in a tourist resort rather than a 'genuine' part of Malta which we would have preferred. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"early 30's couple"
Great location, lively area. Great facilities. Gym amazing, nice indoor pool, good steam room & sauna. Shame about the scream maid on the phone whilst cleaning in room opposite, & getting woke up by the drilling above everyday at 8am when trying to get a lie in. However I would stay there again, the hotel is massive, and excellent laid out.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location - OK service"
The hotel is in great location, but we def did not get a 5 star service. We had 3 rooms booked for a family holiday, but everyday in one of the rooms towels weren't replaced, one day toilet tissue was not replaced. Little things like that which was annoying after paying so much money for a 5 star. The room cleaning service def needs improving. The staff […] in the hotel was great and overall they were very helpful. I also feel the Hotel needs to upgrade some furniture in the balcony. Overall good but not 5 star!!

"A great way to spend four days!"
This hotel is in a really good location and offers many good facilities which made for a very enjoyable stay. Breakfast offered an excellent range of very good quality food but the fruit juices were a disappointment. They were all too sweet and artificial tasting. For me the orange juice was undrinkable but when I asked for some freshly squeezed juice, […] it arrived with no bother which other guests were quick to follow. The lobby was immaculate but the floral arrangements were not to my taste which is not a problem, but the flowers were old, fading and in some cases, dead which rather spoilt the overall impression. The decor in the bedrooms is also a little faded and could do with an update. The outdoor pool area was very pleasant for sunbathing with lots of excellently maintained lounge chairs. I seemed to recall in the blurb there being a "private" beach attached to this hotel which did not seem very private to me. It is a few minutes walk down the street and was crowded every time we went past it. We didn't try any of the restaurants or spa facilities. There was however, a very good Italian seafood place next door which is well worth a visit. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
staffs are really nice, the outdoor pool is also nice with dinning places. love the featured turkish cuisin. will choose again if be in MaltaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Entry level room does not provide coffee/tea making facilities which is poor for a 5 star hotel. Room was carpeted but never vacuumed during a six night stay. Did not receive the room type booked.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The outdated photographs taken several years ago of the Intercontentintal St Juliens are missleading in that the hotel is now run down and needs refurbishing.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Hotel for everyone and anyone."
The Hotel is well located and clean, modern. Staff are always helpful and service is quick and professional. Highly recommendable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"You'll be treated like a star"
The staff are polite, helpful & friendly - nothing is too much trouble and they go over and above to help. The hotel itself is clean & tidy, kind of like a posh premier inn but the staff raise its profile by being so welcomingGenuine Expedia guest review
I did it again picked another great hotel with excellent buffet breakfast, fantastic rooms and perfect location for shops, nightlife and tours.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family hotel"
Staff were wonderful and so helpful and friendly. Truly outstanding service for those with families there is kids club and pool for kids and the staff very helpful . The toys in the kids club could do with some updating or new ones as there were some broken but overall good and it didn't bother our son anywayGenuine Expedia guest review
Had a great time staying here, didn't think the dinner buffet was worth 28 euros very expensive. Plenty of breakfast choice. The pool was lovely and staff were great. It was our anniversary and they gave us a complementary bottle of champagne and chocolates. Very nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
Excellent hotel. In party capital of Malta with loads of bar restaurant, bay and other great things to do things near by. Very big clean room with separate shower and bath. Room has balcony with buildings view as it was 20euro extra per night for over looking pool view. Indoor pool is bit busy but have decent outdoor pool to enjoy the sun.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Was a pleasant one night stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel location may not suit all travellers"
The hotel itself was good, the staff were friendly and the hotel was clean and seemed well run. The buffet breakfast had a wide range of foods - but as the seafood restaurant was closed the choice for evening meals was more limited so we didn't really eat in the hotel apart from some room service. The hotel's location may not be for everyone. It was […] right on the edge of Paceville so there were lots of bars and clubs and restaurants right by the hotel which may suit people looking to enjoy the nightlife but as a family with young children this was not the best location for us - next time we would chose somewhere more quiet. At night you could hear the faint hum of clubs and music - it didn't really bother us too much but some people may not like it. There is an indoor/outdoor pool, and beach area less than 5 minutes from the hotel which are ok for kids to play. Overall it is a good standard hotel, not a luxurious 5* hotel, but a good basic 5* hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent service, good location"
Very good hotel, excellent and friendly service from all staff. Hotel itself good, but not new and ageing in places. Good facilities in general, but one or two things really not acceptable (best example being dreadful changing rooms for the indoor pool). Hotel restaurants: we tried the evening buffet (very good) and the pizza/pasta (very good and not […] expensive). Breakfast buffet very good. Overall, pretty satisfied, but not a 5-star luxury hotel.

"Intercontinental hotel at St Julian"
We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and it was quite comfortable stay. The hotel has various facilities such as pool, etc. The room service was reasonable but very good. It is maintained well although some decor need some patching. It would have been nicer if the staff could give us a proper map and direction.Genuine Expedia guest review
The Intercontinental Malta is an excellent hotel where the staff are extremely attentive with excellent high standards. The receptionist on our first day couldn't have been better giving us some great advice on Malta and Gozo and how to get back from Gozo late at night. The food was very good and they have a great sports bar that provided a relaxed […] oasis after a hard days sightseeing. Overall a great hotel in a great location.

"Brilliant birthday party"
My short stay at this hotel, was with a party of friends, to celebrate my 50th birthday. Upon arrival, we were impressed by the friendliness & courtesy of the front desk staff. We were all upgraded to superior rooms, than those that we had booked & were all very pleased with the service we received. Our rooms were very clean & spacious, having all the […] amenities you would expect, from this calibre of hotel. The bed was extremely comfortable. The bathroom had a bath & also separate shower cubicle, which was good, especially after a visit, to the excellent gym facility. Breakfast was very pleasing, being offered a large fare of the usual, hot,cooked items. There was also, pancakes, a selection of cold meats & cheeses, cereals, omelettes cooked to order, fruit & yoghurts, assorted breads & Danish pastries. Unfortunately, the weather (being the middle of january) prevented us from using the outdoor swimming pool. On the evening of my birthday, we returned to our room, to find a bottle of bubbly, on ice, along with some chocolates. Very nice they were too. All in all, I would not hesitate, to recommend this hotel & hope to return, very soon. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Honeymoon in Malta"
It was a great and comfortable hotel. Real 5 star service (which is rare in Rome). The location is SUPERB. Just step out of the hotel and you can walk to the only nightlife street of Malta. Very happening street with all best clubs and lounges. Do the city sightseeing the whole day, come back to hotel, chill, take a swim in indoor pool (if it is cold), […] have a drink at the hotel bar, and then at 10-11 PM step out for nightlife. Very good staff and very good service. Room was extremely spacious and clean and comfortable. Overall! I give full points to this one. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Definately 5 star"
We had a very pleasant stay at the Intercontinental, St Georges Bay, Malta. The staff were excellent and helpful in the extreme. The variety & quality of the breakfast was excellent & catered for global tastes. All the restaurants were good value & never disappointed with the quality of the cuisine. We booked and would recommend a 'superior' room, it's […] worth the small extra charge. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great for access to the rest of the island"
Bit of a building site around the hotel but within the hotel it feels sufficiently insulated from the noise. Hotel is in an excellent location if you like it lively & also good access to all the island. Breakfast is expensive but excellent. We had free on-demand movies which was a nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
"All areas accessible"
My stay at the hotel was very enjoyable. The bathroom had a few problems which need addressing and the loud music from nearby bars did disturb a good nights sleep. However all the staff could not have been more helpfull and I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good hotel in a busy little town by the sea"
Large, modern hotel with good size room. Pool on the roof with plenty of sunbeds and bar/cafe to enjoy but unfortunately building work nearby meant it was not always peaceful. Great selection for breakfast, plenty of choices for restaurants in and near the hotel. Busy street with cinema/ bowling and street round the corner with all the bars and clubs […] but quieter bars within a short walk. Indoor pool ok and both had a good massage at the spa (not cheap). Taxis and buses to take you to other parts of the island. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
