a few thoughts... -amazing hotel/palace...pictures don't do it justice...fanciest hotel i've ever seen! -due to local customs etc, be aware of several things: the spa is only for men, the pool is only for men, there are separate men/women/family sitting areas in the lobby, women should wear their abaya even in the hotel (but non-muslim women don't need to cover...

it is a stupendously lavish and rather absurd building. The Sun King would have felt it a bit over the top. The rooms are not nearly as good as the public areas. The showers are over the bath. the floodlighting of the building means you cant open the curtains at night. The swimming pool is worth a visit just to... More

I fell in love with this hotel the first time i looked at it, what an amazing structure it is!! If you have been in Saudi or GCC often, you'll know the meaning of being one of the Royalty, although i am not one, but this place gave me the feeling of being one!! Lavish interiors and majestic structures!! It... More

The hotel is very impressive and had heard many good reviews about eating there at various restaurants. Four of us went for high tea to celebrate a good friend leaving. Two of us ordered the Oriental high tea and two ordered the other one. I had an oriental and to be honest was not impressed at all. Presentation was good... More

I had been invited to the Ritz for a function and it was everything I had expected it to be. Service excellent and the quality of food divine. Having visited previously I had already been blown away by the decor and ambiece so the wow factor was missing. Very nice and glitzy but just a reminder of dunyah!

This is an impressive hotel. It is enormous! It lacks nothing! It is just stunning! Rooms are really nice and modern. Only missing a shower in the bathroom, as not very happy with showering in the bathtub. Breakfast is fantastic - it has everything, with the best selection of juices I have ever seen. Fitness centre is very good with... More

If you like your hotels big and grand with plenty of bling this is the place for you. In acres of grounds and with an entrance to rival regal palaces it is certainly in your face. Big rooms with all mod cons. Staff are friendly and helpful. Good buffet breakfast and the buffet evening meal has plenty to choose from.... More

I've been staying in many hotels in Riyadh for business reasons, I happened to stay in this one for 15 days in a row. The hotel is gorgeous and the impression you get from the entrance is fantastic. Rooms are just a bit below the expectation set by the reception lobby. Yuo get welcome food in room and fresh fruit... More

There is not much to say about the hotel itself - very opulent, great service, breakfast, comortable rooms. As a European woman however I lack appropriate facilities for females - the spa, gym and swimming pool are all men-only. Admittedly, there is a small ladies-only gym, which is a nice touch, but insufficient and can get too busy very easily... More
