There's no better hotel servicing the Diplomatic Quarter than the Ritz. I recommend it for its location, facilities (specifically the comfortable rooms and well appointed gym) and for the hospitality of its staff. With free WiFi and a superb breakfast buffet included in my rate, I simply couldn't imagine staying anywhere else. Quick Tips: This property is set back from... More

I stayed here as part of a large contingent of western business travelers in April, many of whom were women. The hotel is beautiful, the enormous buffet meals are spectacular, and the staff is certainly attentive. Women visiting should note that the pool, spa, and exercise room are men-only (if there are women's facilities, they aren't clearly marked or noted... More

This hotel is almos a palace. I believe it was build for the King to host his guests but then was converted to a hotel. It is very grand and the rooms are very large. Huge and very shiney lobby. Check in was quick and so was check out. Service was a bit on the flip side. Sometimes it was... More

One of the most elegant hotels I've ever been, Ritz Carlton Riyadh is considered an epic. If you are here, you'll considered yourself a royalty. We spent our Iftar in one of the Grand ballrooms here in the hotel. The Iftar menu is a combination of international and Arabic cuisines. What a wonderful night! .

Ritz carlton is top of top ultimate luxury one can experience, specially riyadh property. Its beautiful, every inch of the building is crafted to perfection. Its the only five star hotel in riyadh where you get the feel of saudi luxurious life. From lobby to swimming pool, to executive lounge everything is perfect.

Properly it's one of the best hotels in Riyadh. A little bit far from the city and near the diplomatic district where all the embassies are. The hotel lobby and facility with the look from our side is magnificent. Service is very good not excellent. Most of the people there are for business, like most of the hotel in Riyadh.... More
