The rooms are spacious but in need of a refurbishment, especially the bathroom was not on the newest standard. But everything was kept very clean thanks...

The interiors are a bit dated and, in my room, in need of a refurb though this isn't uncommon in the country. The staff are helpful though they dont seem to have as large a car fleet as other hotels. The lunch buffet was extensive and very good. I prefer the Al Faisaliah.

Went there on a business trip and if you are a women, choose another option. All amenities but the outdoor golf practice are closed to woman; and I am not talking about the health club, but the health clubS, the indoor bowling, 3 pools, tennis courts and outdoor pool. Other than staff, very helpful, very clean hotel and well staffed.

I had heard much of the Intercon' in Riyadh before I got there... 'it has a golf course'; 'it has large grounds you can escape the city in' and so on. What I was not expecting was something from a bygone age (at least architecturally). In some ways the hotel sums up the city - it's brown (or shades of...

The rooms look very old but remain comfortable. The bathroom is really small and too old... Restaurants are ok especially the mondo where you can enjoy a terrace close to the pool. Nice gym club and swimming pool. The lounge is clean but small choices of drinks and food.
