Nice hotel, smoking and non smoking rooms, pool, gym and lounge. Very expensive evening buffet in my opinion. Not near anything within walking distance. Polite staff, very clean rooms.minibar (no booze!). But there again what can you do in Riyadh!!

I visited Riyadh on a business trip during Ramadan which could have created some problems but the Courtyard came through. Food was always available via room service and once open the restaurant was wonderful. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. You can't go wrong with this hotel.

The restaurant food was excellent (both breakfast and lunch) - we kept going back. Big comfortable rooms, staff efficient, gym ok with a bit of a view. Only real point for improvement was that the lobby/lounge was a bit cramped and could be more spacious and comfortable for meetings. Will likely return to this hotel.

It is a very nice hotel situated besides the diplomatic district. I really like the way of welcoming the guests. The receptionist were so nice and helpful, especially that gentleman CARLO. The restaurant was in elegant design and present a very delicious food. Thans

The hotel is situated across from the DQ so has easy access for meetings. The hotel itself is quite nice, particularly for the price. As a Western woman travelling alone, I felt completely comfortable in the restaurant without my abaya. The food was a buffet for each meal and had a nice variety. The room itself was a good size...
