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.

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...
