We stayed here for four nights after flying in from Nepal where we had been trekking to inspect and assess earthquake damage to mountain village schools. Abu Dhabi is capital of a first world country and the Intercontinental is a fine example of one the best hotels. Due to Etihad flight changes, we arrived in late and greeted with a...

Hotel is 30mins taxi ride from Abu Dhabi airport. Taxi fares in Abu Dhabi are very cheap! All staff spoke English and bent over backwards to ensure I had a wonderful stay.

What a beautiful property. The views are breathtaking and the staff was second to none. The breakfast buffet was over the top (and they had real BACON!!!!). I hope to return and spend a more time so as to be able to explore!

But I must add the rooms were very very spacious (Having stayed at mostly SPG Hotels the rooms were almost grand). The restaurants are superb, esp The Belgian Cafe...
