This was my second occasion to stay at the Intercontinental in Riyadh. Once again, it lived up to the very high standards that I experienced first time. I was put to the little apartments next to the pools since the main hotel building was full. The apartment was excellent, very well equipped and serviced. The staff are friendly and are...

Fair room, q spacious but the bed is next to the door. Females can't go to the gym room but u can ask for the bike to send to the room. I waited more than 40mins for the bike delivery. The best thing is the water pressure is strong and hot enough.

I am a St Regis hotel person but I have this love to stay at all InterContenental hotels all over the globe. It was my first time here and I used my points for the stay. They upgraded me to a junior suite and over all it was a super good experience. The room needs some touch up all over....

The check-in and check-out processes were fast and efficient. The room was large, comfortable and clean. Tellingly the cupboards had obviously been made bespoke by poorly paid labourers because the doors were poorly aligned. The shower head was old and did not work very well and the hand-held bidet/Muslim shower leaked water profusely. It was cheaply made. None of this...

It's an older hotel and in some spaces really shows it's age. However, it is very serviceable and the rooms are good sized. A perfectly good choice for business in a good location. Room service delivers the standards consistently.

Rooms are pretty good - generous size and reasonable quality. Only complaint is showers over bath rather than walk in showers. Some are noisy too with rooms facing the local mosque so no need for an early alarm call!

I have stayed in many hotels in Riyadh - from the uber modern and contemporary to the run-of-the-mill chain property typical of this region. The InterContinental is certainly an older property, and the rooms and style of decor is NOT brand new or contemporary or modern at all. I stayed here for 8 months (yes, for over 200 days) ......

Checked in for one day, reception was very good and fast in checkin but the room is over rated. Yes it's spacious but quality is poor.
