InterContinental Hotel Jeddah

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed March 6, 2014

I stayed in this hotel for many weeks while working on a project in Jeddah, so I am very familiar with it. Its location is ideal for most business travellers and the service is typical InterContinental - very good.

Good things about this hotel: The service, the gym and pool,the daily fresh fruit left in your room.

Not so good things about this hotel: Rooms are getting a bit tired. Very expensive buffet type restaurants may force you to eat elsewhere or just take room service.

As with all Intercontinental Hotels the IHG rewards do not reward long term stays. So that despite staying at this hotel for over three months, I ended up with the same IHG reward points as I would have for a couple of overnight stays.

Spacious, well equipped rooms (as you would expect from intercontinental chain). Be aware that the hotel has a reputation amongst my colleagues of being very long to check in and check out. Breakfast buffet very good, other restaurants good quality but fairly expensive.

Room Tip: Main building is more convenient than annexe buildings.

Good rooms, great location. But very old building so be ready to walk 8 to 10 mins from the elevator. Good restaurants, a bit overpriced but good experience overall.

The main gate security guards don't match up to the hotel. Needs to learn basic etiquettes

Room Tip: Ask for something closer to the elevator

The hotel has good facilities and is near red sea beach. The staff is very cordial and cooperative .The restaurants are excellent .Internet facility is free. Initially we were told charges are per person but later they didn't charge extra .I suggest charges should be per Room and not per person. We would love to come again to this hotel.

A lovely hotel with an old fashioned Arabesque design. Everyone is very helpful and welcoming. The rooms are beautiful , well appointed and very clean. A very comfortable bed and pillows provided a fantastic nights sleep. The breakfast buffet was very good with a great selection provided.

I have made several trips to Jeddah, but never before staying at the Interncontinental. I was very impressed. The room was spacious, clean, and they provided complimentary fresh fruit that was delicious. The front desk was always ready to help and the buffet/resteraunt was convenient and delicious. Across the street is the beach and to the right of the property is a McDonalds, a coffee shop, a pharmacy, and other things. The internet was FAST and reliable, I had to take a 5 hour (yes FIVE HOUR) webcast presentation originating in the USA. The connection held the bandwidth the entire time without a glitch. Great place, I would stay here again for sure!
