I stayed for 4 nights in business in July 2014. During Ramadan, so obviously very quiet and restaurants not on their usual hours and service. Even so the breakfast in the Oasis restaurant was terrible. I understand they are only serving a handful of people a day but it was thoroughly average for the 160 riyals asking price. Room service...

Big hotel with spacious rooms and restaurants. Comfortable beds and enormous closet for clothes storing (suitable for long term travelers). Good quality breakfast with satisfactory variety. Stuff welcoming and kind. In house dining was tasty but a bit pricey. Swimming pool, gym and other recreational venues helped spend your spare time.

I like staying here - the rooms are old - but always clean and tidy. Internet access is always good quality - but my favourite thing is how friendly the staff are - The guy that shines shoes always greets me the minute I walk through the door - and he's an absolute asset to the hotel And a lovely...

The InterContinental has proved to be far better than I anticipated as I stayed here from 3 weeks.

Riyadh isn't the greenest city so this hotel is great to feel comfortable and a bit in touch with nature. There are trees and other greens, the hotel itself is quiet, especially at night.

Stayed here for 2 nights for business. Appeared to me as museum of the eighties. Plus is that is has more green surroundings (sitting area, poolside) than any other hotel in Riyadh.

The hotel and the restaurants are nice, however the rooms in the main wing are old and not cozy. The aircondition is loud, the interior is shabby, the window is small and the rooms are poor lit. Also the pool airea is not welcoming and the gym is oldfashioned.

I had a business meeting and wanted to safe the 10 min taxi in the morning from the Holiday Inn nearby. The price of SR of 1300 is definitely too much.
