The rooms are spacious. There is a separate living room and kitchenette. I did not expect a room to be that big for only SR 370 per night. The hotel has the best location if you love museums and love to walk. You can walk from the hotel to the National Museum of Saudi Arabia. You can even walk from... More

The rooms are spacious and clean. The staff was very helpful Nice lobby with fish, snakes and a crocadile too... really exciting scene Cons....... Elevators are too old... More

As the other reviews say its a must see place. I've never stayed in the hotel but spent many hours in meetings in the coffee shop/restaurant. Where you get great service, good coffee and a pool full of terrapins, carp Oh and not to forget the croc in its own pool!!!

this hotel is a must see. the aquarium theme is carried through the reception to the bar where dividing walls, the bar, the tables and the back wall of the bar are all spotlessly maintained tropical aquariums. but it does not stop there - in the middle of the bar is a pool with plaster elephants posed on rocks, and...

I spent two weeks here during September 2013. The hotel offer suites with a kitchen & living room. The rooms are dreary but have everying one needs. The staff were attentive & provided me with anything i couldn't find. There is only one restaurant which serves a mediocre breakfast & a small selection of refreshments the rest of the day.... More

Noise is deafening during the day due to the construction going on. The WIFI they offer is absolutely useless, I could not use at all the internet. Bed is extremely hard. I have to sleep on the covers to soften it a little bit. They only offer one single towel for the bathroom and it is old and rough. The... More

This place has high expectations (or at least it seems like it does walking in the front doors) but it falls flat on some many things. Rooms are very large, but they are empty. The bathroom is huge by hotel standards but there is only a small shower stall. The 1 towel they procide is sandpaper. There is a kitchen... More

My first impression of the Aquarium was that it was a terrible place to stay, but after trying out a few other furnished apartments I found myself back here and appreciating it. What the Aquarium has over the other places is that the staff is more competent and multilingual. There is breakfast (limited thought), as well in room service (not... More
