Very warm welcome!

I have spent 8 nights in this hotel, I got a very nice upgrade and the suite was spacious, very well appointed, with tea and coffee facilities and an espresso machine; the bathroom had a shower and a bathtub with very good amenities. I felt welcome from the minute I entered the lobby, Karam, the Front Office Manager was present and I appreciated with pleasure his hospitality. The check in process was very quick and easy, The staff is efficient and courteous, a special mention to Amrou, the duty manager who facilitated my check out and to the very pleasant ..., helpful and friendly Elixabet in the club Lounge where the whole staff had a caring attitude and the food was excellent. I had a small concern with the concierge but this problem was immediately rectified by the Manager on duty. All in all, I enjoyed my stay and felt at home like during all previous stays. read hotel review

Engagement weekend
  • Recommended hotel

  • Beach holiday
  • October 2015
I began planning this engagement weekend a month before the stay and I must say the reservation staff and the concierge were very helpful when I told them of my plans. The hotel itself is in a wonderful location. It is on the beach front and only a short car journey from the mall. The hotel offers many options for dining and there are two pools and the beach to choose to relax at. When we stayed there they were showing movies on the beach at night time...absolute bliss. Well worth the money to stay at this iconic hotel. read hotel review

We stayed here on our way to New Zealand. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by friendly staff and the check in staff were lovely. We were given our room key and we went up to the room. When we arrived the bed was covered in rose petals and petals in the bath. Hubby had mentioned we were on our honeymoon. There were also chocolate covered strawberries and dates. We used room service. Food was no ce and fresh and very tasty. Would love to stay again at some point. Thank you for a memorable stay. read hotel review

Part of Abu Dhabi's history, a classy but a bit outdated hotel. Staff were extremely helpful, no complain about anything. Roof swimming pool is available, as well as fitness and sauna area, gym, massage. A seperated pool and private beach area is just a few steps away with amazing sauna facilities, and gym, free wifi, free apples. Would love to return at any time. read hotel review

I just returned form a short stay here. overall the property is quite an old one - in fact one of the oldest 5 star properties - but has been maintained quite well. The staff at check in were pleasant and I was quite happy when I was told that as an elite member i was upgraded to a Club room. however its extremely disappointing to be told that although I was in a Club room but i was not entitled to use the Club lounge. Sounds very weird really. In spite of being almost totally sold out due to ... a convention, the service was not bad. read hotel review

We stayed at the Intercontinental because of it's close proximity to the beach (private) and because we have a good status in the IHG loyalty program. We booked a standard club room to be able to experience the club facility in this nice hotel. We were very surprised to be upgraded to a top level suite upon our arrival. The suite was the most beautiful room I've ever stayed in with nice views on the Emirates Towers. From the outside the hotel looks a bit dated, but on the inside the hotel is very nice. We didn't try any of ... the restaurants in the hotel, but the food at the beach bar was very good and the price was acceptable. read hotel review

This is our second visit in six months to Intercontinental Abu Dhabi. Not a lot of changes done in meantime but we noticed that some service quality improved. Room very spacious but we received only City view and upgraded to Club Room without options to use Club a Lounge even with the fact that I am Gold IHG Member. I understand this as a joke and such behaviour isn't acceptable towards loyal members. We face problem at check out when we discovered that someone ordered drinks from beach bar and put on our bill.In fact clients run away and ... staff add this bill to our account. Humiliating and not acceptable at all! Disappointed in this property.We will not go there again. read hotel review

We were completely satisfied. I can only recommend this hotel. The location is the only thing which is not really ideal. No shops or restaurants nearby read hotel review

One of the oldest and best and reliable hotels in abu dhabi with excellent service, magnificent restaurants and lovely friendly bars. A great place to stay and only a stones throw away from Emirates Palace, Etihad Towers and the beach read hotel review

A quiet place but in the center of the city
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • City break
  • May 2014
The situation of the hotel is the best, close by the center, but in a quit area. The variety of restaurants, with view on a harbor is outstanding. And when the new beach and Lebanese restaurent will be open this summer, it is going to be more relaxing read hotel review

Wonderful beach & city holiday
  • Recommended hotel
  • Couples
  • Beach holiday
  • April 2014
As per mid April, the new beach area wasn`t finished, a few workers still around. But when finished, it´ll probably be one of the best beach areas in Abu Dhabi city. Although not directly at the open sea (artificial "Coconut Island" in front), the water is surpisingly clear. In general, the old Interconti is a great hotel and good located. In walking distance to Ethihad Towers, Marina Mall, Emirates Palace and the Corniche Beach (approx. 10-15/20 min. walk - good doable in spring, in summer maybe too hot). Good public bus connections directly in front of hotel (2 AED single ... fare), but taxis are cheap anyway (just 30 AED to Great Mosque). Diner in the hotel (buffet) very good value, outside bars at the harbour are a great leisure place and good visited also by locals. Highly recommended hotel! read hotel review

Great beach right at the hotel

Although this isn't the most modern InterContinental I've stayed at, it is more than adequate and does offer a great beach right at the hotel. It's a good 15 minute ride away from the Grand Mosque, which is an absolute must-see! read hotel review
