Room was very comfortable and had everything you need for a relaxing stay. Breakfast spread was limited, but the quality of food was... More

Want luxury with genuine arabian touch, this is the place to go. Haven't found snything to complain about. The rooms are comfortable, and the service very good. I especially loved the outdoor garden with the ancient olive tree quite endearing.

I've recently been researching to stay at different hotels in Riyadh when visiting for business and this hotel hands down is without a doubt, the BEST! The restaurants are great, the spa & the service is just unbelievable! Also many VIPs are usually in the place!

I went to this hotel last month with my husband, I was truly impressed with the Restaurant Azurro and his manager (Lenny).He was really professional and friendly. Since the moment we arrived till the moment we left he took wonderful care of us. All dishes were delicious but I would recommend the Parmesan risotto and the golden tartufata bar as... More

There are so many ways to describe this hotel, but the title above helps to provide an overview of this hotel. First, this is a big hotel for a Ritz (which I typically associate with somewhat smaller hotels). The road to the hotel is over 400 metres in length along a wide promenade that has small fountains on the divide.... More

I have stayed at the Ritz twice now and must say the staff are exceptional. They are friendly, helpful and always smiling. The gym facilities are good for a hotel. On my first stay I had a great deal of difficulty getting access to internet. The hotel staff tried moving me to another room, which was a very nice room-thanks,... More

This hotel is beautiful and felt very comfortable. The check in was efficient. The rooms were very clean. The buffet breakfast is wonderful and has everything you could want in a breakfast. The Italian restaurant was very good and the service was impeccable. The only disappointment was the hotel drivers never knew where they were going. Twice we booked services... More

When a hotel is charging these sort of prices, they need to get the basics right......like have a room ready for a booked guest. I arrived at about 21:30 hrs, exhausted having been travelling for 24 hours only to be told that the room wasn't ready. I had to sit in the lobby for about 45 minutes while said room... More
