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. Seemed like it was not cleaned for ages, bathroom curtain smelled funny. Breakfast was not up to standard, very regular you can get from any cafe down the street. Overall experience was not pleasant....

This hotel is close to the Ministry of the Interior. It has well appointed and spacious rooms and large grounds. The shower was a bath shower rather than a walk-in. I used the club lounge facilities for breakfast and dinners (small buffet nibbles) when not out at a restaurant. Women should not assume access to the pool or gym. Women...

Back in Riyadh for business meant a return to this hotel. Still a good base and all food in the restaurants was good. They even got the porridge right! Excellent new gym facilities, best I have seen for a while.

The food is great The atmosphere is cordial The place is lovely with nice garden walks and sports centre For a western woman it was a refuge for me. i frequented their restaurant and business centre, and I experienced the novelty of attending many royal weddings in the hotel ballroom in the 90s.
