“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2012

Hello,

I have seen very much hotels in my business life. This is one of the best. Here is an excellent service.

Also the manager himself is contacting the guests and ask if they are feeling well.

The rooms have a lot of space and erverything is clean.

This is my recommendation if you are looking for a very good hotel in Al-Khobbar!

The hotel works together with a taxi service, which you can oder if you would like to have a pich-up service e.g. from the airport.

Best regards, MK

I stayed at Intercontinental Khobar for over 30 nights. The hotel is centrally located and is near a buzzing area (so you can go out and have a walk during the winter months anyway).
Service is fantastic and very personalized. Their gym and pool are located on the 5th floor and are both in great shape.
Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Housekeeping is fast and neat. Although I did complain a couple of times about their level of noise (try not to stay near the service exit doors)
Internet is fast enough, and food is excellent. Keep it up.

Room Tip: Try to avoid rooms near the service exit door

Stayed in this hotel for the first time on a business and was amazed on the size and design of the deluxe room. The location is actually just within the vicinity of all banks' regional offices, a short drive to corniche and 15-minute drive to Saudi Aramco and American/British Schools.

Compared to Moevenpick and Le Meridien, this hotel is really much better plus the IHG loyalty program provides a lot of benefit to their members.

I have booked a Standard room and i was upgrade to a Deluxe one.

The room had small living area with big desk to work with everything already setup (phone, internet, etc).

The bathroom was clean and have a decent size shower.
The breakfast had a very nice buffet
Internet is free.

I am am very satisfied and i think this hotel is really value for the price they charge.

Unfortunately,I have staid one night only in this hotel.

This hotel is a sure bet!

The rooms are quiet. The service anticipates your needs. The style is both attractive and functional, for example lighting where you need it in a variety of choices, a stone shower stall that is spacious with two shower heads, gliding drawers, etc. You feel that the design of the rooms were thought out with you in mind.
The breakfast buffet ranged with dishes from several cuisines and in portions that were small enough to allow you to taste much from many.

Room Tip: The mini suites are three room partitions in a row and pleasant. The standard room is a long one. I...

Having previously used the le Meridien I was booked into the Intercontinental accidentally, but it turned out to be a nice hotel. While not on the Corniche, it is in a nice part of town, but there are some security concerns. It does not have the usual high security entrance, and can be approached without passing through any form of evident security (although there is a security barrier from the main road, this can be circumvented). Also the hotel comprises two buildings and the second building, where I stayed, has a desk that was not manned when I arrived. The lift does require a room card to activate it which is somewhat reassuring. I can imagine in Summer that the walk from one building to the other would not be appreciated in high heat and humidity. Room was modern and well appointed, with free internet, and was reasonably priced. Breakfast was of a high quality, with a full choice of buffet items. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly, and were a highlight of the visit. Courteous, friendly and went the extra mile.
