Personally, I felt it not to be the best of locations for simply walking out and grabbing a bite. However, the in-house dining is fantastic. The standard rooms are extremely large and well appointed. Very luxurious !

I was in Riyadh for brief business trip. Having lived and stayed in Riyadh for a number of years I never really considered staying in the intercontinental, mainly because its quite isolated from the newer areas of the city and the mad traffic always puts me off. However, on this trip I was convinced as my college was an avid... More

Rooms are extremely old back to 90s. Price/ value is extremely high. As a spire elite member I should get a free access to lounge and an executive room upgrade, However the front desk team refused to grant such upgrade. Never recommend it for any kind of trip.

i stayed for one night on my way to Jeddah during the month of May 2016. Heavily guarded hotel at the heart of the city providing ample security at the hotel. God menu and food standards and the fruit basket as usual. Clean hotel and well maintained Intercontinental standards
