We went to here to celebrate Iftar. One of the fascinating foods in the menu is the Lamb which is being cooked in front of you. You can also have some good taste of Morrocan foods especially the sauted vegetable with prawns. A must try!

I've stayed at the Makarim Riyadh Hotel two times so far. My company books us a room at this hotel because of its closeness to the airport. My coworkers and I often transit through Riyadh to other locations in the Kingdom or back to the USA several times a month- and this often requires an overnight stay in Riyadh. The... More

Good experience: The hotel is great, very spacious and have good rooms. It is also quite near from the airport which is a plus. Foods are excellent and well prepared. Bad experience: If you are the organizer of an event, expect that your plans will not be followed accordingly. It seems employees handling event and activities in this hotel has... More

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
