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

This hotel physically lacks nothing. It is the appitamy of luxury. From the arrival, check in, concierge and general staff efficiency everything is just right. All this said, it lacks what would make it top class........CHARACTER, WARMTH.........Personality, for the lack of a better word. Even if I could afford it......not for me thank you!

I was just here for a short overnight stay, wish I could have explored more. Classic decor in stunning fashion, with unique chandeliers, painted and vaulted ceiling frescos, sections of the hotel in their own unique color scheme. I just wanted to film it all. Breakfast was excellent and included in the room rate, but wifi not free (c'mon!). The... More

Very luxurious, excellent service, probably the best hotel in Saudi Arabia. Comfortable rooms with many amenities, there is even an espresso machine in the room. Room service and valet service. During Ramadan Iftar they have good starters and but the main course is not up to the mark. Try there arabic coffee and blueberry cheese..

The hotel is new and clean. The stuff so freindly and the dinning in the room so delicious. I would like to thank Mr. Karem he was the supervisor in the day shift. I arrive with my wife to the hotel at 8:00am in the morning and he was so nice and jenirous with me because he gave me the... More

The rooms are large and new. Nice Seating area and a big bed. I felt spoiled until... I Walked into the bathroom. The shower is one of those you stand in the slippery bath to shower ....no separate shower cubical. This was a big let down and was incongruous relative to the room and the rest of the hotel. The...

Forget the gym, the cartoon sign over the breakfast area and spend the rest of your time soaking up the surroundings to this stunning hotel. Built opposite the embassy district, hence the security, and a 20 minute drive to the city, this hotel ticks all the boxes. As for the interior, no expense was spared, just amazing throughout, cumulating in... More
