Good business hotel, great gym
The Intercontinental shows its age a bit but it has one of the best hotel gyms I have ever seen and good restaurant options (which are in short supply in Riyadh.)

Very Good business hotel! Close to SAMA, Breakfast buffet does not disappoint and will give you late checkout (until 3 PM for free) if you asked nicely :)
ZAKKY, us1 night business trip
Fair 4,0
Needs major renovation
I stayed in a room with non functional stuff, starting from phone, coffee machine to lights to mini bar, and the furniture is probably over 15 years old then requested to move to another one. They moved me to a very similar one anyways.

Comfortable Riyadh Option
Good choice for a work trip, nice large rooms. Good gymnasium and a decent size outdoor pool. It's Riyadh so very spread out and not much in terms of restaurants/coffee shops within walking distance. Staff are friendly and efficient.
Justin, us2 night business trip
Good 6,0
Not a 5* intercontinental
Room is old and definitely not the standard of a 5* hotel. Breakfast is average. Service was ver good though, and the area is also good.
Ibrahim, usBusiness trip
Good 6,0
Not a fan
There is a part of the hotel near the pool that definitely is not like the photos on It’s more like a Motel 6. I had to complain twice to get moved and granted it was a suite, but that was all that I as available and I felt like I was misled. They made it right, but I had to put my foot down. Very expensive food, too.
