Had a professional meeting here, Major advantage being very near to the airport & I think it is only one i am afraid ! Has got a decent board room with access to the restaurant if you want to grab something to eat.

Stayed for a few hours sleep due to a longer layover. Convenient for the airport with a taxi. Rooms a good size but a bit dated though reasonably clean. Staff were helpful and service overall was good. Fine if you need to stay near the airport.

Perhaps due to lack of competition, but this only airport hotel on the Riyadh airport grounds could do with a refresh, with the room fixtures showing their age. The hotel is located several KM away from the airport building, and their transfer service is indispensable. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was clean. It's a fair deal... More

Decent gym, sauna and pool, restaurant was also ok. The room service menu was slightly more extensive than the restaurant and a fair bit less expensive. The staff were pleasant in all areas, although English isn't widely spoken so getting your point over can be a bit of a challenge. My one complaint was that the housekeeping service was sporadic...

Back in town for my annual visit I stayed at the Makarim because it is convenient for visiting my clients. This year in recognition of my return visit i was "upgraded" to a junior suite. Not much difference to a standard room other than a couple of sofas tucked in the corner. The bathroom is identical to every other room... More

The Makarim Riyadh Hotel is located very close to King Khalid International Airport, northeast of Riyadh. There is no other hotel that close to the airport. Approaching the main entrance it really looked like a five star hotel. First doubts about five star service came up when I experienced the hotel staff's poor ability to understand and speak english languange... More

The hotel has improved since i first visited 3 years ago - reception has now relocated and they provide a car to collect and take you to and from the airport.
