Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jcastell Comfortable Business Property
I frequently stay in the Intercon Riyadh, at least twice per month for business purposes. The staff are nice, great fitness facilities, golf club and excellent food. In my opinion a little bit pricey and rooms are fairly dated. Overall a good proposition compared to other properties in Riyadh.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by madmax2 An excellent business hotel
I visit Riyadh frequently for business and recently started using the Intercon after unhappy experiences at other hotels (it is not very convenient for our office). The hotel is quite old and sprawling (you have to switch between towers if you want to go to the executive lounge) but quality is excellent and the staff are very attentive.
The food at the buffet is of high quality and there is a wide range of choices; room service was above average. After a bit of searching for the gym (there are two and one is out of use, but this is not signposted till you get there) the one by the pool has a full range of weights and machines and plenty of space - one of the better examples of this kind of facility. The pool is of a decent size and deep but has a rather odd shape and can get crowded.
Even the taxis were not too outrageously priced (though in common with other taxis picked up at hotels in Riyadh, they all seem to forget to switch on the meter) and I did not have to wait long for them despite the hotel itself being set back from the road and having a security check at the gate

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by haifam comfortable bed and efficient staff
I was welcomed as an IHG member and offered an upgrade.
The room was nice and the bed was one of the best I ever had in KSA hotels. Staff were very efficient in responding to our needs promptly . Room service was much better than dining in the restaurant. The club lounge has a very nice ambience and staff were friendly.
The only problem I faced was at the time of check out when I found that the room rate on the bill is different than what I was told at the time of booking or check in, the manager apologized for the mistake and I told them that their staff should indicate when there is rate difference for different week/end nights.
Overall I was pleased and I would choose intercontinental hotel when I visit Riyadh next time.
