"No Five Star I would rate 3.5 out of 5Star"
Nice location, not a Five star Hotel, Breakfast not even BB standards. Not impressed with shower and Aircondition.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel & staff"
1 Week was just not enough time to have spent in Malta, we are definitely looking to go back for a second visit. If you like the night life / have elderly teenage children, want a hotel with helpful staff and a little comfort the Intercontental is a great place to stay. The hotel staff were extreemly helpful and friendly, our room was cleaned to a very […] high standard and we fell lucky with a room which had a great view of a beautifully landscaped courtyard. DO NOT hire a car, we had terrible experiences both hiring a car, finding parking places and getting around Malta. There is a distinct lack of sign posts in Malta and local drivers can be extreemly agressive. Use the Malta sightseeing step on - step off buses for tours of Malta and Gozo but plan ahead and prioritse on where you want to step off and visit as you will only have time to step off 3 / maybe 4 locations. We had a great day with a Cominos cruise and swimming in blue Lagoon and would do this again next time we visit. If you want to visit historical attractions, I would highly recommend taking a taxi to Valetta and Mdina, both cities have more than enough attractions to keep you busy for a whole day. Birgu / Vittoriosa was very disappointing, the place is run down, we wasted half a day going there. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Hotel - loved it"
We chose this hotel as it suited our family group. We have 2 adult sons who wanted to have access to clubs etc. The hotel is an oasis in the middle of Paceville - The service was faultless throughout and we all enjoyed our stay. We travelled around the island by taxi & bus - all easily accessible from the hotel. The beach and the rooftop pool were […] the weak spot of the hotel - frequently overcrowded. The hotel is a great place to stay and it is not an exaggeration to say that the staff, from management to domestic staff, cannot do enough for you - all were extremely helpful, professional and very friendly.

Hotel is very good and representatives very friendly. We had an issue with our shower box during the stay (one week), but I must say the hotel made all possible to fix and revert. Location is just great for those having kids at age of 12+ as surrounding offers a lot for teenagers and so on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel, with Private beach"
Great staff, great food, plenty of different restaurents at the hotel, with 24 hour room serive at a decent price. Locations really good, about 10 minutes away from a really big shopping centre in Silema, and across the road, you have a small shopping centre, that has a lot of bars and clubs at reasonable prices, so good night life. Beach is a small […] walk away, staff were all very polite and helpful. Buffet Breakfast had everything you could want, crepes, pastries, full english, a selection of cheeses fresh fruit, eyes how you want them, cereal ... It also has an indoor and outdoor pool, thats open late! Would definately stay there again. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fantastic service but room smells on mould"
I must emphasise the excellent service that we received in this hotel. Everyone in the hotel we dealt with was helpful and pleasant. This is the reason why it is really hard for me to write this negative review but I must say that the strong smell of mould coming from the air condition really spoiled our stay. As soon as we realized this we did ask […] to change the room and we were immediately moved to the room on the top floor in the opposite corner of the hotel. We could not feel any smell when we entered the room but as soon as the air-condition fan started blowing the same smell was there. It was the end of July, it was hot and humid so air-condition was a must. As a consequence, it completely spoiled our vacation. It is interesting that this unpleasant smell was not present in any of the common areas and I cannot guarantee that it exists in all rooms (this usually happens when the air-condition maintenance is not adequate) but considering that we experienced the same thing in two entirely different rooms discouraged us from insisting to change the room again. As many other guests noted, the hotel is located in extremely noisy neighbourhood with a number of night clubs, not ideal for families. I doubt that I would be going back to this hotel.

"Staff make stay more pleasurable"
The staff at the hotel were the most friendly and accommodating I have experienced over the last few years. There was nothing we needed that was not dealt with quickly and efficiently, and in a friendly fashion.Genuine Expedia guest review
would not consider this a 5* hotel - for a hotel that is only10 years old, this requires renovation - rugs need to be thrown out, stains removed (even on mirrors) and walls painted this was however, spacious and close to all bars and beachesGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great for couples and families."
Very well located hotel with superb, friendly and knowledgable staff.Genuine Expedia guest review
we arrived 5 hours before check in and they managed to not only get us a room straight away but we were upgraded to a suite which was amazing. rooms were cleaned twice a day and we received complementary drinks etc. the pool area is huge which accommodates for how many people are there. only minor complaint would be that is quite busy during the day […] so you may have to wait a while to get help in regards to getting around Malta. its really close to the bars and has a bus stop that connects you to the rest of malta. overall a great stay Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Family friendly hotel"
Great hotel for families but beware the toilet flush - it is so strong, at least in the deluxe family room we had, it splatters everywhere. The hotel also has 8 competitively priced restaurants attached to it and the al fresco restaurant area has wonderful ambience. The hotel also has a great offer for the use of the Carissa lounge (huge spread of […] breakfast, soft drinks and water all day long, tea & cakes, pre-dinner aperitifs and canapés, iPads to use, games - all for 45 Euros per day for a family of 4). The staff are all very helpful and friendly too. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Loved the location and things to do"
Hotel is in a great location in terms of not too far from most shops/rest/night life and good access to transports of all kinds. But it is in a busy area, so if you are looking for a less crowded place and more peaceful place then this is not for you. But this hotel has a number of good restaurants and one by the beach. Has its own provite part of […] the beach and indoor/outdoor swimming pools. Plus offer Free WiFi in the rooms. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. Massive breakfast selection. Nice family pool. Good restaurants on site. Had lovely pianist playing in evening. Decent location.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good central location"
We booked our room to include bed and breakfast and also with use of the club lounge, This really made the holiday special and good value for money. The hotel staff were quite attentive but when we were due to leave it was beyond them to let us know our cab had arrived whilst we were waiting in the club lounge, we therefore missed our pickup, but the […] reception staff quickly resolved this and arrange for their taxi to take us to the airport. All was well. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Right in the heart of it"
Check in great. Rooms well appointed and clean. Breakfast very busy but good choices. Right next door to bowling alley and cinema + loads of bars, shopping and nightclubs round about us. Busy, busy. Pool area very good too and the worlds largest gym. All in an excellent hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great hotel with excellent resturants"
This hotel does the best buffet breakfast I have seen in a long time, they cater for everyone. We had a problem with noise from local bars on the first night and we were moved with no issues to another room the next day. The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was spacious and very comfortable. We went to 2 of the hotels resturants and both […] meals were excellent with attentative but not intrusive waiters and the food was lovely. The only downside was the location, this hotel is next to a party street which is what caused the noise on the first night but if you want to go and have a drink in the evening or want a nice meal there is plenty of choice within a very short walk. The pool was good with a good pool bar and snack bar Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"None stop brilliance!"
3 of us girls stayed for 3 nights (12th-15th July) and we were most impressed. We received excellent customer service throughout our stay. On arrival we received a very warm welcome by a member of staff who took our bags and directed us inside the hotel to check in. We were greeted straight away by Malcolm who was extremely friendly and efficient and […] made the check-in process effortless. Our room (814) was very spacious, clean, modern, big comfortable beds, separate bath & shower- it had everything we needed. We had a balcony with an excellent view of the main road Bay street and also of the beachfront. We spent our first afternoon around the pool (rooftop!) There were plenty of sunbeds to go around. We ordered some food from a very friendly member of staff, Casper, he was ever so helpful and cheerful. Our food came out really quickly and was very tasty indeed! We thoroughly enjoyed happy hour at the pool bar from 5.30pm-7.30pm where all drinks were 50% off! The room we booked included breakfast and it was definitely worth it. They had everything….We decided to try out the beach on our first morning. It was literally a 2 minute walk from the hotel. Was a lovely beach with calm, clear waters. We ate at the beach bar which was tasty and efficient. We would not recommend a night out in Paceville unless you are a teen! Try Spinola Bay much nicer and only a short stroll away! Many thanks to Marlon for all of the info prior to our arrival :) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed for a week in one of the IC Club rooms with views over looking the hotel garden and Al Fresco restaurant. The room was very clean and all the furnishings looked new. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had access to the two lounges and made regular use of the IC Club lounge on […] the top floor. The staff in the lounge were very attentive, from asking if we would like drink refills to helping understand the best bus routes to use to get to some of the attractions. We ate at both Sopranos and the Waterbiscuit restaurants. Soprano's had a quite relaxed atmosphere and served a good selection of pizzas and pastas. Waterbiscuit is more modern / trendy and served a range of dishes from around Europe. I ordered a fillet steak and my girlfriend had a lamb dish; both were really well cooked and presented.

"A lovely hotel with top service."
We have just returned from a week's stay at the Intercontinental in a Superior Room. The staff are extremely helpful very polite. The room (on 11th floor) was wonderful with a lovely view of the pool and gardens, we did note that the lower levels had much more restricted views. and those that faced the road, may have a sea view, but, would also have […] to contend with a fair bit of traffic noise and also music from the local bars/clubs. The location of the hotel isnt the most attractive, it is on the very fringe of Paceville (which is nightclub/bar district), but don't let that put you off, It wasn't noisy, or disruptive and it was generally people outside enjoying the good weather and being sociable. The area generally has plenty of pretty bays with good restaurants etc, brilliant bus connections and some lovely walks, There is a small shopping centre, cinema and bowling alley close to the hotel too. Overall a really fantastic hotel, with A1 staff, the breakfast had plenty of choice for all tastes and the whole atmosphere was welcoming and friendly and I would definitly recommend people to stay there.

This is a great hotel in a lively location. Staff are friendly, helpful and totally professional. We had a lovely room overlooking the pool area with a balcony. Room was very clean and serviced well. Breakfast is good - lots of choice. Hotel is in Paceville - night life hot spot; so very lively at night but hotel inside is very quiet. This was our 3rd […] stay and we weren't disappointed.

"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

"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

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
