If you are in Riyadh, you want to experience the ancient thousand night and nights, here is the place for you. This hotel is grand, lavish, luxurious, and out of this world. This was never meant to be for everyone. Only the lucky ones that want to see how palaces and oasises once looked like. Everything about his hotel is... More

The hotel is so huge and grand in every way with beautiful flower decorations everywhere, a very nice and big indoor swimmingpool (only for men and children) and some excellent restaurants with top quality food, either you eat at the lobby cafe or one of the other restaurants. The big restaurant has buffets which have such a grand selection which... More

a truly remarkable architectural achievement, you are entering a palace upon arrival. the chandelier is of course stunning, given its size and obvious worth. the rooms are beautiful and opulent, and the beds very comfortable. highlight is the breakfast--the food is superb. both arabic as well as western fare, our business party spent several hours there! only real downside of...

Hi, When it comes to visiting Riyadh don't expect a pristine service. The hospitality sector here in the kingdom lacks professionalism. This hotel has great architecture, an impressive pice of real estate. The check in was smooth rooms were tidy. haven't had the chance to try the other services like in-room dining and the health club. If your in town... More

The service at the Ritz-Carlton sets it apart from other 5 star hotels I've been to. Being greeted by name when you walk into the club lounge or when housekeeping comes around makes that difference. The food in the club lounge is excellent, so much so that we never eat at any of the other restaurants. Nice, large pool, spa... More

An amazing entrance, I thought I was going to meet the king by their security and entrance, which is much spacious and well designed compared to Fisaliah or still number one Four Seasons. The lobby is almost a museum, the outdoor area holding a tremendous trees, although the employees didn't give an accurate information about it, I have asked different... More

The communal areas of this hotel are fantastic but the rooms are looking a little tired and in need of remodelling. What sets this hotel apart is the spa facilities and the resturants which are hard to beat, anywhere. Coupled with the RC's service standards the hotel is a great experience until you make your way to the room. Typically... More

When you drive through the gates towards the entry it is very impressive. The whole hotel is spectacular. You can eat at different spots and its really tasty. Great and well trained staff and very beautiful lobby. It makes you feel like a royalty
