I have stayed a few times at this hotel, and each experience has been a very positive one. The staff, especially in the Club Lounge and Housekeeping is exceptional. Everyone is attentive, polite, and helpful. They have airport pick up and drop off (250 SR charge each way), and it is a painless ride to and from concerning traffic. I... More

I stayed in this hotel for two nights, it's one of the best hotels I've stayed in around the world, the rooms are spacious and nice, the staff are professional and friendly, the service is excellent and the location is also good. Fully recommended if you are visiting Riyadh for any reason.

It takes you away from Riyadh's traffic, you can spend the whole day exploring the hotel and the facilities. The resturant was good but, not to many options for the Vegan :( ​ The room is big, bathroom was very clean. ​ And room services very helpful and fast!

It looks like a palace, and apparently, according to the staff at the desk, it was supposed to be. Located in the middle of the Diplomatic district, we were never more than a half hour away from any of our appointments. The best part of the stay was our driver, booked by the hotel. Uber is very popular in Riyadh,... More

The Ritz-Carlton Riyadh Hotel was formerly the Royal guest house before it was sold as a hotel. It still attracts a fair number of Royals and Ministers, and has a commensurately higher standard of service. The decor is very. ..gold. However, it is fairly tasteful by Gulf standards and the sheer size of the foyer is such that the glitzy... More

Since my original review of 10 June 2012, two noticeable events have occurred at the Ritz Carlton Riyadh. Firstly, it is much busier, in fact on many nights it is now full. Secondly, pigeons have moved in. One feels sorry for the doormen and valet parking staff. They are clearly dealing with the results. Watch where you step! It might... More

The Ritz is my favourite hotel in Riyadh. I visited here so many times before but never stayed because I was put off by the overly-ornate architecture and decor. Once I got over that I was instantly won over by the superb service, the spacious rooms, and the beautiful grounds. The food served is generally good. The location of the... More
