Stayed in the hotel during a business trip and can say that the rooms are spacious, good and always clean. The lobby was also spacious and the reception staff was very friendly. The health club had many option and machines, and the pool was maintained properly. One thing I liked about the hotel was the location, it felt like everything... More

Visited this hotel on May 26, 2015. The room was excellent. However, I went with my colleagues for dinner at the main restaurant for buffet dinner. That was the worst food I have ever eaten at any 5 star hotel. The food looked stale and even the sweets were not eatable for example the creme brûlée was burned. Anyhow at... More

This Hotel is a gem in the middle of the eastern province area of AL Ahsa. The rooms are great comfortable and have basic amenities. The breakfast is diverse but could have been better. The staff are friendly but need to be more proactive. The lobby is impressive. This is your only high level comfort in this city.

This hotel has a great lobby and fine rooms, but comes up short on consistent, high quality service. I stayed for 5 days on a business trip and mostly the hotel was just fine. The lobby is spacious and impressive. My room was clean and well maintained with all the amenities you expect at a luxury hotel. The dates and... More

I recently stayed here for 12 nights on a business trip. The hotel lobby is very grand but unfortunately the five star appearance ends there. The rooms although large are slightly dated but again no complaints. Food was ok but not five star and on one occasion my room service order 'got misplaced' so waited over two hours to be... More

Nice clean rooms, well decorated it looks like a 5 star hotel. But the service is way below expectation specially in the breakfast restaurant. Really poor food, cakes like doughnut no croissant just some fatayer look like tiny croissant. And the egg section no matter what kind of egg you requested "shakshooka, or scrambled" you will end up with an... More

After staying at many of IHG properties across Saudi Arabia, I know what to expect in most of these places, but Intercon Al Ahsa is quite a surprise package.....

Visited this place for an exhibition which was taking place - quite a large hall - good services - nice food - helpful staff - hotel location is also quite in the centre of town and can easily move around the fort or any of the resorts in the outskirts of the city.
