This hotel is only a short taxi ride away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, but once you get inside the hotel you just switch off, relax and feel a million miles away from the rat race. The rooms are spacious and modern, the beach area is fantastic and there is a great bar to keep the... More

Very good service, specially Josh(Rest. MGR) and Ravi were very good hosts. The restaurant was busy but they always made sure that the guests were given proper attention and the service they requested, including myself. Food selection was good for breakfast,

My wife and I were in Abu Dhabi for business and stayed here for the first time. While this is the oldest luxury hotel in the city (1980), it is lovely and the amenities are wonderful: large well-appointed rooms with excellent views, a marina, swimming pools, a beautiful beach on the Gulf, a health club, and several magnificent restaurants ....

The Intercon is located in a superb location in the city for business or leisure traveler. The facilities are all good. There is no reason to go off the grounds for any meal; however, the hotel offers and suggests other venues to explore the area and culture. The staff is excellent. Everyone, and I mean EVERYONE, is willing to assist... More

Abu Dhabi is a clean, modern, safe and expensive city. The Intercontinental is a fine hotel, close to all the city has to offer. Unlike NYC, or Paris, or even Cairo, there did not seem to be a walking central district. Everything is basically a short taxi ride away. There are no shopping areas or the related within close walking... More

Stopped over for one night on my way to Asia. I had booked for 3 rooms with two other friends. We were given the 3 rooms on 3 different floors.

Stayed here during a recent trip for a conference at the Jumeirah At Etihad Towers which is a 10 min walk. Hotel was excellent. Staff very helpful and polite during check in. Room was very comfortable and spacious, with decent sized bathroom, separate bath and shower cubicle. Several restaurants and bars to choose from on site. Would definitely return!
