I would like to convey a picture of my stay at the InterContinental Abu Dhabi Hotel during the past few days. It was a wonderful stay. Thankfully, the hotel is characterized by a lot of movement and many tourists, and this gives a good impression about the hotel, and the large number of visitors means to me that all the food is clean and good, and this is what I found in all the hotel restaurants And the room service, and the Inter Hotel features external parking, which is the best at the level of Abu Dhabi hotels, as I have stayed in more than one hotel, which does not have external parking, such as the Inter, which offers privacy and comfort in entry and exit, A word of thanks to the staff and those in charge of the hotel is few. Thank you to everyone, especially to Mr. Raouf, for being a major reason for my stay for a longer period and for facilitating many obstacles and making my reservations and those of my friends with ease and flexibility Indeed a great example and a good interface for what I find of his smile, welcome, good reception and hospitality (the smile of the employee and his good treatment is a major reason for my comfort and the comfort of any visitor to the hotel, as it reflects a positive image of the hotel management and the sophistication of their treatment and respect for the guest).

Solomon was kind and polite. He make our days brighter as he was always happy to help. Also used to check on us if we are ok or need any assist which was very helpful. He used to ensured that the taxi drivers was taking us to the right destination. I would have given to him more than 5 stars as he deserved. Thanks from Mr ALI and his wife.
