Once again the service in the hotel is 5* all staff from Concierge to the cleaning staff are always smiling and happy to help with anything you need, After a busy day at the Oil Show this hotel is recommended to get back and switch off with the variety of bars and restaurants its like a resort within the city

I stayed for a week over Xmas. Wonderful service & food options,would recommend a Club Room as the Club lounge is the best I've been to. It's in a central location and Abu Dhabi is a gem of a place if you want to relax.

Stayed at the Intercontinental while over for the 2015 Final F1 Grand Prix. Took seven days and it was well worth the money. The location is good (in town near the Mall) layout was great and with its SPA and selection of restaurants, it would be hard to find better. Service was good with everyone trying their best.

The hotel is comfortable, if not as luxurious and spacious as other five star options in Abu Dhabi. The perk is the combined beach, spa and gym that is linked to the hotel. Perfect for grown ups and couples. The beach might have a sad view of a pile of sand, but everything else is great. Good breakfast, but don't...

When you think of the U.A.E., you envision ultra luxury, dripping opulence and over the top extravagance beyond anything you’ve experienced. Maybe this hotel was once that in some earlier decade, but it is incredibly past date and very underwhelming. We stayed at this hotel for a month, only because we were awaiting a spot at the Jumeirah at Etihad...
