4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

Bit like a OTT Vega hotel, but with no bars and lacking a happy soul. Everyone was anxious to serve, yet they were all terrified of doing something wrong so checked everything If they relax and enjoy their job - the atmosphere would return and the place would move up 200%. Staff cannot function when they are full of fear

Words can not describe how beautiful this hotel is. By far one of the best hotels I have stayed at. We used the Royal suite and it was huge. 4500 square feet with two bedrooms, formal dinning room, office and sitting room. A full kitchen and butler to go along with the room. The staff is the most professional I... More

The out looking of the place is incredible. The service is good. I have been only to their restaurants. Orjowan restaurant is amazing I really recommend it. The Italian restaurant isn't that great and the prices are a little too high. The bowling area (basement) is amazing.....

This is my second time to visit and dine at the Ritz here in Riyadh. From these two visits, the Al Orjuan Restaurant never fails to impress me. This restaurant caters for all types of people's taste buds. Be it for seafood lovers or meat lovers or vegetarians they all have it. All you need to come there prepared for... More

This property was formerly owned by the Saudi Royal Family and used for distinguished guests. As you could probably imagine given that fact, the hotel and grounds are simply stunning. The drive up to the hotel through the enormous imposing gates is spectacular. I felt safe and secure at all times. Our standard room was very nice: not large, but... More

This is the best hotel in riyadh...the gardens, lighting, decor...everything is just spectacular. The service is also good and the staff are polite and helpful. I have visited the strike bowling facility at ritz and would rate it very highly. 10 lanes....big space to sit and enjoy the cafe...ladies can be free without their abayas...its a fun place. This is... More

Finally, I have a hd a true 5 star experience. Thanks to the Riyadh RC, I now have the standard against which other hotels will be judged. The RC had great service, great wi-fi, coffee in the room, excellent towels, and great service. Yes, I mentioned it twice. This hotel was, really, a palace. It had a huge pool, a... More

I stayed one night at the Ritz-Carlton Riyadh. To call the hotel luxurious would be to call a Rolls-Royce a nice car. The hotel really is a palace that makes its guests feel like kings and queens. From the moment of entrance through the gate that resembles the Arc de Triomphe to the magnificent lobby with the chandeliers and statues,... More
