Had a nice room with a room overlooking the pool as well as the water, some problems with TV channels though. Stayed there 6 nights, thought the Chamas restaurant was magnificent with all the selections of meat, have not been treated like that since I was in Brazil 20 years ago. Resort has two large swimming pools and bars in...

Abu Dhabi is a clean, modern, safe and expensive city. The Intercontinental is a fine hotel, close to all the city has to offer. Unlike NYC, or Paris, or even Cairo, there did not seem to be a walking central district. Everything is basically a short taxi ride away. There are no shopping areas or the related within close walking...

Stopped over for one night on my way to Asia. I had booked for 3 rooms with two other friends. We were given the 3 rooms on 3 different floors. After being kept waiting for a while, the hotel was eventually able to accommodate us on the same floor. To make up for the wait, the Chief Concierge, Nodir, gave...

Stayed here for four nights in early October and it was an amazing experience. The staff were attentive and polite and very friendly. We stayed in an Emirates suite on the ninth floor with stunning views of the city and the marina. The suite was spacious and well appointed and the daily fruit basket and water were much appreciated.

Stayed here during a recent trip for a conference at the Jumeirah At Etihad Towers which is a 10 min walk. Hotel was excellent. Staff very helpful and polite during check in. Room was very comfortable and spacious, with decent sized bathroom, separate bath and shower cubicle. Several restaurants and bars to choose from on site. Would definitely return!

A good option for business travellers, and the pool and beach offer decent activities for weekend getaways or accompanying spouses. The Club Floor rooms are a good option if you are planning on consuming alcohol during your stay--quite expensive to purchase drinks in hotel bars and restaurants in Abu Dhabi, so a few free cocktails in the Club Lounge may...

It's a nice old styled hotel with modern facilities and great location..walking distance from Emirates Palace hotel and most down-town touristy destinations..about 30 mins drive from Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque. Try their Italian Restaurant Circo..it was the best amongst many we tried while in Abu Dhabi.

The service was very good. I would stay there again without any hesitation. Breakie was very good. The location is very centric so you can quickly go to the mall if you need to. The gym was also very good and it has a really good spa
