Just spent 1 night at the Intercontinental Hotel. The hotel is located in downtown Riyadh and is convenient to all government ministries. It is a large hotel but quiet--with a 9 Hole Golf Course, Fitness Facility, Indoor & Outdoor Pool and even a bowling alley. As a Platinum Inter Member I was upgraded to a Junior Suite. It was a...

The reception upon my arrival was very friendly and quick. I had requested the possibility for a late check out and the receptionist very enthusiastically and kindly proposed the option of checking out at 5PM instead of the standard 3PM, and made sure to mention that staying any longer would result in being charged for a half's day fare. The... More

I recently stayed for 2 nights on a short business trip to Riyadh. Riyadh is very spread out, don’t plan on walking to anything nearby. We used the conference facilities on site (which were okay) and were shuttled to all other meetings. My observations from the short stay: The hotel is clearly a bit “dated”, although it is still very... More

This is actually a very nice hotel, excellent sports facilities (golf, tennis, big gym and bowling), the service is excellent and so are the food outlets, but the very old rooms are in dire need of a makeover.
