Friendly, welcoming staff at this hotel give it immediately a good atmosphere. Corridors leading to rooms are decorated interestingly, which gives a good impression. My room was a mini suite; separate office/lounge area, from bedroom which had an attractive middle-Eastern theme to the room dividers. Large bathroom, comprising both bath and stand up shower suite. Unfortunately the lighting was not... More

Quick, efficient check-in and nice spacious room. Clean, well furnished and with everything you need for your stay. The best thing was that despite the soaring heat outside I could sleep without the air conditioning which was a real bonus. Great bed too. The downside was that because of the hotels grill like exterior it felt like a prison.

Overall very good if you're in town on business. Rooms are decent and comfortable, staff are friendly and helpful, spa is good, restaurants are very high standard and location is pretty good. AC was a bit strong but not a big deal. Surrounding area isn't great but you're not in town to go for a wander about. You take a... More

2 days here now and no hot water. "Sorry but there is hot water in the spa seems to be the standard reply".The staff seem disinterested in trying to resolve this situation. Fine for men but what about females. Not a good stay. Also the hotel guide states that the brasserie on 4 opens daily from 0630am to 1100pm. This... More

Large hotel, with several International kitchens, Arabian, Japanese and Italian, to which my favorite was the Italian. The quality of food was very nice; the mignon – a certain favorite of mine – was cooked to perfection. This in combination with a starter and a drink (juice) came to around SR380 / €75 I travel constantly and stay in many... More

Hotel room standard is ok but not the usual opulence of a Middle East hotel, a bit more on the basic side. The area outside the hotel is not much to be desired. Parts of the pavements are broken up and there are many unfinished building sites that look like they have not been touched for years, there is also... More

Excellent Hotel - Lovely Breakfast - good gym/pool facilities. Location quite secure infront of Ministeries of Internal affairs & Defense. Would definitely recommend to people visiting Riyadh, however, little expensive though.

We had an excellent dinner at this restaurant. The ambiance and service was unmatched! The waiter 'Ahmed' was highly professional and well experienced. We also got the chance to be greeted the manager of all restaurants Mr. Samir and they were very welcoming, and courteous. I highly recommend this hotel's dinning. You feel a sense of Italy!
