Short overnight stay for onward flight in morning. Nice Hotel for this purpose. Enormous suite of rooms which was an upgrade when I arrived. Clean and comfortable with a kitchen which might be good for some travellers. Peaceful nights sleep as no airplane noise. Just far enough away from airport. Maybe 5 minutes by taxi. Paid 30 Riyals which was... More

5th or 6th stay but it never gets any better. I stay here only because it is convenient for meeting my clients and because the traffic into and out of Riyadh City is so congested. Even more delays since they stared building the metro. Had a non-smoking room but my bed, clothes etc all smelled of smoke. Ate in the... More

I arrived at midnight and was away the next morning but the price was OK, £130 for B&B. Room was spectacular and the bed the biggest I have ever slept on. Sure its miles from anywhere but perfect for the airport. Watch out for the taxis who will try and charge a fortune - SAR 40 is quite enough. Breakfast... More

Very nice, huge rooms, huge living room, close to the airport (super convenient), good food. I am reading some of the other reviews and I just dont understand them, I thing I might have gotten a suite because it was really excellent! They even provided a basket with fruits. Bathrobes, sleepers, super clean, very late check out, great!

This hotel is relatively expensive but the facilities are quite limited. It has a very poor choice of TV channels and checking in and out is nearly always an issue. It is the only hotel close to Riyadh KKIA Airport so it relies on this for its business. Wifi is extremely poor. Room service is perhaps the only saving grace... More

Reasonable interiors, ok rooms with a decent breakfast spread. The hotel is dated and shows up in some places but they are doing their best to keep a contemporary look and feel. Unless you are walking distance to work from this hotel wouldn't consider given the traffic challenge getting in and out.

I'd say that the one and only advantage of this hotel is close to the airport, we regularly stay in this hotel, total of 12 days a month, the bathroom is old, it's hard to set warm water in the bathtub, the water temperature varies from itself from so cold to so hot. No carpet on the floor of the... More

Due to my business I am a regular visitor to this hotel. My stays are short but peaceful. The rooms are of modest size and suitable for a short stay. The hotel is mainly used for Air Crew but has plenty of room for other guests. The lobby/reception area has a large and varied seating, with music and fountain, coffee... More

Even though it is the only hotel in the airport area with no competitors, but it is a good hotel. Service is good and location is good for short stay in the airport area. what I like the most is their open buffet which has an amazing food variety. I also like the swimming pool with that big tv screen.
