InterContinental Riyadh

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I am a Spire Ambassador with intercontinental. But lately I feel cheated out of my entitlements as a member. The staff at the hotel were great. Only problem was not allowed to book an extra night had to go to Movenpick. A 5 star hotel would have assisted me in finding a hotel especially when I have over 315000 points. Not only at Riyadh intercontinental. But my last 4 stays have been disastrous. As for Riyadh the hotel is awesome. But we’re not ready for my arrival and did not get what I am entitled to. The staff were amazing - I did not like the room - I was in 121.

Amazing service in al bustan restaurant and appreciate wassem for his nice and amazing service. Will visit again inshallha soon. Nice welcoming and this make feel like I’m at home. I will recommend for my friends.

I had tried lots of hotels and this is the most decent one. Breakfast was good, location is near to MOI and Olaya Towers, pretty far from airport though. Select a room away from storage rooms because sound isolation is poor, AC is very loud, they provide fruits which is pretty nice, their lounge at the roof is cool, staff are trying their best. Overall it is a recommended hotel in Riyadh.

Very good hotel. Outstanding customer service. Great room size. Hotel restaurants are very good and great service. From the moment I entered the hotel until I left, I had an outstanding stay. Would recommend this hotel to anyone.

I have stayed at the Intercontinental in Riyadh a few times now. Generally just 1-2 nights at a time. This time I asked the hotel to organize the pick up from the airport and I thoroughly recommend this. Works very well and cuts out the stress of catching the taxi at the airport. Be careful catching a taxi at the airport. On checking-in the clerk was very friendly and indeed the whole atmosphere seemed very positive. I was lucky enough to get a room upgrade and the room was a great size with excellent decor. The bathroom is exceptionally good. Things are looking up in Riyadh.

We were here for a conference. The hotel staff was excellent and very helpful. We got in late, about 1 am, and the staff, especially Asif, were a joy to work with not only that night but throughout our stay. The hotel itself is a little dated, our room decor could certainly be refreshed, but the room was a great size with a separate sitting area and desk. Breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Al Bustan restaurant are buffet style, and very expensive (between $47 and $70) and really not worth that amount. Order off the menu or talk with the staff and they will work with you on getting you what you need. The food was below average, the fresh fruit was some of the best-tasting fruit that I have had.

The property has had some refurbishment as it is an older hotel. The rooms are nice and spacious. there is a golf course and a conference center as part of the complex. the health club is well equipped and clean. The breakfast lunch and dinner buffets are loaded with options but it is a bit pricey.

That’s a good thing. If you want OTT glitz, go to the Ritz-Carlton or Narcissus. This is a civilized environment providing an excellent InterContinental level of service. The new gym is especially good.

Old decorarions ! Bathroom old oligarquia not working ! Couldnt use hairdryr because there was no plug and where esse was a mirror! Fooded Rooms, When i entereded the room there was rain e ater in the floor near the window .but the worst was not having hot Bater for 2 days ! You can imagine a 5 star hotel ? Reception is not good , cant fiz the problem dont give me another room . Dont. Go there never more .

The staff? Excellent! The room? Excellent! There is also a little but very interesting library. The conference halls, moreover, are ideal. Riyadh is an exciting city both for business travellers and for tourists as well.
