Perfect break
  • Hotel not recommended

  • City break
  • June 2014
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

A quiet place but in the center of the city

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

The hotel has about 390 rooms (important: therefore no mass treatment). The condition was in our opinion for a 5 star hotel very good. It is everywhere in the hotel was very clean and the room was always tip top from the roomboy to leave. What we already knew, the beach area is located in a camp. For us however no problem, because it was still a normal the beach with the beach chairs and the free loaner towels use, the construction site is only partially to see and hear. Including is also a wireless internet access (also at the ... beach to receive). The code you get immediately upon check-in, along with the room cards. Please be careful when accessing the wi-fi: one must after having log on to the network of an internal side with room number and access code for a 'kind' of access to decide. The 'complimentary' wi-fi is the normal free access was. The 'high speed' access costs a high cost (350 dhs ~ 70 €). We had booked half board - breakfast and lunch or breakfast and dinner - you can decide for yourself. The guest structure was a colorful mix - from young couples, families, retirees, business guests. At our time the u17 world cup held there, and some teams were with us in the hotel. But that was not greatly disturbed, except that the elevators partially fast busy were (but there are enough of them). What the origin of visitors are concerned: german, british, asians, americans, partly russians. There was never any friction. Other: view of etihad towers and the emirates palace. read hotel review

    Very nice, large, spacious rooms (floor 6,630) on the rear side of the hotel, on the you a nice view of green and some skyscraper has. At the back of the hotel is the courtyard of the hotel to see, if you the building herunterschaut. Every hotel has somewhere a corner, where things must be stored and where it may be not so nice looking - this could be a bit better, hides. But never disturbed and was also only with the look down to see! Facilities: flat screen tv, safe, minibar, desk with internet connection, bathroom with bathtub and shower, bidet, telephone, ironing board and iron, lots of mirrors (for the ladies), kettle with tea bags and coffee pack and of course a manually or automatically working air conditioning. On the one side, you had the possibility, on a device all lights on - and to distinguish, a bell to place, the air conditioning system to taxes and the 'do not disturb' or 'room service' function of room to activate. Beside the bell at the door, there are 2 things, the flash - for the aforementioned functions. Very convenient. The windows are due to the high temperatures and the floor height not to open. The bathroom was always clean and had also a very good size. A leash (appropriate in the wall) could one directly over the bath for drying clothes retension (since no balcony). Criticism: in our room was the bath no longer completely so nice. It was a little scratched. But overall a really nice room. As mentioned above, there is the possibility of his account at any time on the tv to see, very convenient. German tv channels: ard, zdf, and rtl

    The hotel offers on the 3. the restaurant ' selections'. Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner in buffet form is offered. The moreover there is still further restaurants and bars, which of the marina right in front of (and also in the) hotel are located. In these bars you can very good evening sit and smoke shisha and/or a beer/cocktail. We ate never - so at this point no rating. The atmosphere is very beautifully, also due to the adjacent etihad towers, which always very nicely lit. The ' selections' was our ' hauptanlaufstelle' to the food. You were always personally a free space and it was immediately after the asks for asked (1 drinks per meal included). In the morning, there was a variety of desserts (croissants, small pastry, cakes, donuts). Normal small bread rolls, different sorts of bread, etc. The open kitchen features live cooking at (eggs, scrambled eggs, fried eggs, omelet and so on) 3 sorts of cheese, turkey breast fillet, all jams, nutella and a lot of fruit. Cereal and orange juice. Since we prefer to hearty breakfast, we have some 'fleshy' things missed, but we expect that, as it is a muslim country and we understand that it makes it less offered - however, there was a corner with dishes from pork. We found the breakfast unfortunately a little diversified before. The lunch/dinner however was relatively varied. There were different theme nights (asian, arab, etc.) , on the priorities of the buffets sector. For salad and dessert was very good catered for. Especially the sweets for dessert we had very good, really very good and delicious! About the cleanliness, we need almost no word to say: everything was ok. Used plates were cleared away very quickly. Tips: we went to the local 10% held. However should one 8., that the prices not was already included. In the background is the selections always a nice piano melody.

    Top service you can only say. The staff is professional, friendly, helpful and very polite. The room cleaning was spotless and the room boy was in our case a super nice man, the always asked about, whether everything correct is. He has for example always asked, whether we enough bottles of water (free of charge) available. It was often chocolate on the afternoon on our room. We gladly daily a tip (10 aed) in the room for him to leave. Foreign languages: without english you arrive to this country not far. The hotel staff spoke english. 2-3 employees spoke a few words german. Once these out had, that we were german, they have often personally on german and also with a handshake said hello, really nice. In addition we received after about 2 days a call a german employees, which presented and offered at may arise problems to mediate. Her name is jennifer. Problems/complaints: We had it accidentally on the first day, with accessing the wireless internet, the pay 'high speed' wireless internet for 350 eas - about 7 0 €to book. This was only one day later we noticed, the tv our current bill accepted. After a short personal consulting at the front desk and clarifying the error was the any amount unblocked. Also here was the solution quickly and uncomplicated.

    The hotel offers some options, which we however all nods use: gym, sauna, tennis, golf. The beach was as said in the construction, see above. Beach chairs and umbrellas available free of charge, friendly towel issue. Air-conditioned and clean toilets at the beach available. Showers likewise. Wi-fi available on the beach. On the beach you had the possibility to eat and drink to order (snacks). This can be paid by cash or on the hotel bill. We only used the pool once used. Beach chairs and umbrellas also free (qualitatively better than at the beach). Free towels. Free cold bottles of water in a small filled with ice box. What we noticed very positively the numerous lifeguards in the water. Very attentive, exemplary! We didn't get entertainment but that is why we the hotel also elected, because we loud club holiday not want. There are at the pool, i believe water aerobics, but i'm not sure, because we were always at the beach.

    The hotel has its own private beach, which walk along the beautiful, also private, marina in 5 minutes. The airport is about 30 minutes away by car. After dubai are about 1.5 hour here at the hotel the limousine for 10 hours (1000 aed -200 €about - for a maximum of 3 persons) for rent and a whole day dubai to experience! The restaurant 'le boulanger' at the abu dhabi skyline is highly recommended - amazing water views including skyline and very cheap delicious food, smoke shisha etc.! What shopping wise, you should the uae not to worry. In abu dhabi is the 'marina mall', which with the taxi in less than 10 minutes (about 2 €) to reach is. There are over several floors all the shopping and restaurants. In the lower area there is a large supermarket, souvenir shops, a currency exchange facility, and many other more in dubai is the biggest einlaufszentrum the world - dubai mall. Access: the hotel is located in the south of the city. With the taxi one is always fast and cheap everywhere. They are mostly in front of the hotel or you can very quickly in the concierge orders. The prices have been unified. 3,50 aed unit price and 1.60 aed per kilometer until 50 kilometer.

    After our room change we had a great room on the 18. floor with view to the sea. The rooms are all the same size, with a nice large bathroom and separate toilet. The air conditioning can be individually regulated. In the room there was a kettle with tea and coffee and a very expensive minibar. The lights from the bed tax. Overall the room was cozy and clean.

In the belgian café we only drank something, but we can absolutely recommend it.

    The only drawback of the hotel is the construction on the beach. With pneumatic drills and winkelschleifern not really comes recovery on. Even if the construction is finished, has offshore peninsula, the circa 150 meters away, not the feeling at the ocean. It is rather quarry pond-feeling. Otherwise, the emirates palace in blickweite and one is relatively fast at the corniche or marina mall.

From the outside the hotel is not nice to look at, but everyone is catered for inside. The staff is very nice and helpful. Since our English skills are a bit limited, one was always made to bring a German speaking staff member. Breakfast and also dinner were very good and very rich. There was something for everyone also as a vegetarian one gets one's money worth. The rooms are very well equipped. We can only say super in all, this hotel is definitely highly recommended. The beach was at the time still a construction site, but even that the ... service staff was able to make up for through its friendliness. read hotel review

perfect hotel, no real beach - but more of a normal hotel. Also for meetings. But excellent service, all the staff are very friendly. Only English spoken. There were only a few opportunities for excursions; seeing a Mosque or taking a trip to an oasis. Jeep Safari, of course. Then that's actually it. Of course it's always really hot in August, so that you normally don't want to go anywhere apart from air-conditioned places. The pool is cooled to 30°C, the sea (small bay) is 35 degrees during the day. Very nice room, big enough. Wi-fi available, so internet costs ... nothing. Excellent food, huge selection: all the staff appreciate praise. Most are Filipinos. The hotel is really recommendable! read hotel review

The hotel has 19 floors with a total of 390 rooms (double and single rooms), as well as 54 suites (according to website). The hotel is very, very clean and well maintained. It belongs to the oldest in the town, but it has not the glamour and charm lost. It seemed very luxurious and has a classy ambience. We had booked full board and could thus in the various restaurants ( selections, boccaccio, chamas churrascaria & bar) our meals. We however always for the selections decided, because it directly on our (3) floor and we felt good. There are smoking ... and non-smoking rooms. The smoking room but seemed only on the 3. floor to be. You get free wi-fi access with a reduced internet speeds, but was completely enough for us. A upgrade was always (surcharge) possible. We were there during the hottest time of the year in abu dhabi, but the hotel was very well-attended despite the heat. Very many german guests were there, mainly couples.

    The rooms were big enough (about 40 square meters) and tv (3 german channels), mini bar, telephone, shower and bathtub, as well as a safe, ironing board, a kettle and tea bags, and coffee. All rooms are air-conditioned (about 21 degrees, was adjustable). Windows due to the high outside (48 degrees) not be opened. The furniture was flawless, our bed was big and comfortable. You may have a switch a 'do not disturb' on the door aktivierenl therefore know the housekeeping staff, that you don't want to be disturbed. Otherwise rung (it is above the door bell, these were then but blocked). On the television screen you can also check your current costs get (for example beverages or food in the hotel and incidentals like laundry service).

    As already described, the hotel had different bars and restaurants, but we mostly in the ' selections' anyway. It was at the entrance of the staff directly to the free tables led, and it has been asked, what you wanted to drink. The food was very varied and tasty. Every day you had many dishes to choose from, so that the decision should always deal. In the restaurant were also different evenings offered (time asian, arabic, etc.). The tables were always immediately cleaned. The staff was very attentive and immediately used, empty plates cleared away. Every meal we got at noon and in the evening a drink. In the back part of the restaurants there is also a designated smoking area (lunch and dinner). In the 'belgian cafe' you can also chips or mussels food. There is also a variety of belgian beers. Prices were however enormously expensive there (with alcohol in general is very expensive).

    When we arrived in the hotel were several employees for us and the luggage were taken up and a worst situations packed. We arrived in the morning. We knew, that we only from 14 hours we could check-in. At the reception ran but everything went smoothly, and you asked us, if we would not have a problem, a smoking room to get. This was immediately available. We took it and could then immediately into the room, had no 3 hour wait. We were greeted by the lady at the front desk to the room and asked, if we had the rooms really are. We said to, and a few moments later were already the suit-cases in the room with us. Just great! The whole time, we in the hotel spent, we only friendly and courteous staff. We have often been asked, if everything was in order and, what one needs. The room service was impeccable. Our competent staff (samundra) was always very friendly and took care of our concerns. We were several times on the day new bottles of water, also in the afternoon. There were used towels immediately exchanged. You called us concern by the house-keeping and asked, if everything was ok we, whether what is needed. Three star hotel three star! So what i have never experienced something like that. Twice we had to order to 'help' ask: once, because i sport show wanted to watch (we have as deutschle channels ard and zdf, and receive rtl), but no reception was there. Immediately it was examined, until it is again worked. And they asked a day later after, if everything was in order. Another time a glass broken. We asked for, whether we get another one could. And it came just two staff and brought us new glasses. Our samundra got immediately a vacuum cleaner and helped with, the glass be repealed (i. e.. He has asked me, my fingers to leave). The rooms were always perfectly clean and tidy. Concierge raouf organised our tours (abu-dhabi tour, desert, dubai tour) and helped us, a boat trip, we then however still refuse had. He was always very friendly and full of joke! We have much laughed! In our restaurant we had only with a great staff to do. Especially our three waiters shoaíb, uzaír, and caesar. Always very friendly and helpful and - in a 5 star hotel, absolutely human and not distant! We have so much fun with the 3 boys. But also otherwise all friendly and courteous! One felt completely well taken care of! English you should definitely bring, because everywhere - also outside of the hotels - communicated in english was. Our servers and our concierge always tried to speak a little german and could to some extent german, but in general english is essential!

    Directly at the hotel there was a pool. You get a cooler with 2 bottles of water and towels. The water in the pool is colder than in the sea. There was a bar right next to the pool. The staff served on request directly at berth. Beach chairs were free of charge and sufficiently available, however, we can observe, that it people, their chair and then once the food.! The beach is about 5 minutes away from the hotel right on the marina. The temperature of the water was very warm (at least in august). A real refreshment we had unfortunately not. But it was beautifully, directly to swim in the sea. Before one to the beach comes, towels and drinks (however without cooler) offered. At the beach chairs you ring, if you like to order. The beach area is currently under construction, so that it more a construction site resembles, but the score (pictures were on the fence to see) could be seen. The view of the sea is unfortunately, due to sandbergen, very limited. But that was known before. The hotel has a beautiful and neat and well-equipped fitness and spa area, we often used. You can also play tennis or golf. This offer could be booked with the front desk (concierge) book. But we didn't use it. Also one can only recommend, a desert safari (with a stable stomach) or cities or excursions to book. So you get to know country, people and culture... ;-) !

    We are in dubai and from there to the hotel through our tour operator geshuttlet. To dubai are about 140 kilometer. The hotel's private beach you need about 5 minutes. Unfortunately the view is not great, because before the beach sandberge poured are. But we knew that from the reports on the internet before. A continuous view of the sea is unfortunately not possible. Next to our hotel has views of the etihad tower, also a hotel, the already to the newer part. The emirates palace is in the immediate vicinity. One can go shopping in the 'marina mall' drive. This is with the taxi or the hotel's own (free) shuttle every hour and after notification (about 8 minutes) away. Taxis are very cheap (see tips). There are lots of shops, all descriptions. Also has a supermarket a french chain (carrefour) in addition, where everything in large selection! To the beach promenade (corniche) it is also about 10 minutes by taxi. A beautiful promenade, but to share privately at on-site hotels are rented, so that access is only in the public area is possible. The hotel itself has the lobby on the 'piano lounge', where in the evening also live singing and music. For fish lovers there are directly on the beach the 'fishmarket'. A restaurant with high popularity for visitors to abu dhabi. There visitors other hotels like to eat. You can also in the hotel in the 'belgium cafe', the 'boccaccio' or ' chamas churrascaria & bar' food and the evening drink. In the ' chamas churrascaria & bar', in the evening also live music. There is on well-kept evening dress were valued (men = long pants).

    We had half board. Since in the hotel the majority of the guests only breakfast, there was at the dinner hardly any variation to the day before. With half board you can choose, whether one lunch or dinner eat. The hotel has several restaurants and highly recommended is the belgian cafe. There's good beer and also delicious meals. On the beach there was the fish-restaurant, which is also very recommendable.

    As a guest you can the fitness center use, which around the clock opened. This but we didn't use, since we either at the beach or at the pool. There is a swimming pool and a private beach (about 3 minutes). Everywhere there were pool chairs and umbrellas and free beach towels provided. As a guest you can the fitness center use, which around the clock opened. This but we didn't use, since we either at the beach or at the pool. At the beach there was a pay beach bar. The water was very clear and very good (one swam almost above without having to go). When we at the time were in the hotel, was right on the beach under construction, but there was as good as no disturbances. And the views of the skyscraper is very nice. From the pool one has a very beautiful prospect. A children's pool there was also.
