The hotel is very friendly, clean and has great services. New gym and great pool plus a golf course. Note woman can't use the gym. This is Saudi Arabia. That said it's probably the best place to stay in Riyadh if you are a woman. Ambassador rooms are very modern and very well appointed. High end everything. It's a good...

I stayed in this hotel for my visit. It is a large hotel with many facilities. The staff is really nice and helpful. It offers a huge gym and pool area. (Of course men only) In the Club Lounge I could enjoy delicious food. The rooms are large, but a little bit dark. The hotel itself is situated right in...

From the check-in till check-out, it was memorable experience. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Club lounge experience is something I would recommend. Mondo food is just mouthwatering. Safety and security at its best.

The Intercontinental in Riyadh is a reliable top hotel that you can always depend on. It has all the high specs you would expect of this chain. They have great restaurants inside and outside.
