Asked for king size and they checked me into a room on the first floor with a KSB but the view of a high wall painted burnt orange. Asked for a room higher up with a view and they gave me one on 2nd floor. No more KSBs so I got two double beds which I don't particularly like when... More

Spacious room (about 4 X 8 m) with nice furnishings. The room is very under-illuminated. There is that crazy frosted window (see other reviews). TV has BBC World. Not well soundproofed room-to-room or from the outside (call to prayer easily heard). Wi-Fi is wireless, or in room, with a cable (provided) at 100MBS. Very fast and reliable; included in my...

Visited for 2 days while lecturing at a local hospital; room was nicely-appointed, clean and quiet. Included breakfast was excellent. Location is a bit remote, needed a car or taxi to get just about anywhere of interest.

Usually stay more toward the center of town but this hotel is nice and western friendly. The staff is great and very attentive. Not much to do close by so your trapped in the hotel unless you want to grab a taxi. But room service is ok, the gym is decent. Overall an above average courtyard.

Having stayed here twice in one month I have found it excellent for a female business woman. I was able to undertake business meetings in comfort and without any sense of feeling out of place. I could have dinner and breakfast in the restaurant as a sole dinner again wirhout any discomfort. The rooms are good with the ground floor... More

The hotel's location is such that it saves me a god 30-45 min of travel to my project site. Itals offers a comfortable stay with good service. The restaurant offers limited choices especially if you are staying for a long time there.

I was here for a short business meeting and the location is near the airport and with 24 hours security. The check-in experience and porter service was excellent. The breakfast spread at OLEA Cafe was good. Typically high traffic business crowd but could be rather congested at the lobby area in the morning and lunch time. I was on the... More

Stayed there for 3 nights and found it clean, comfortable and well appointed. It was a pleasant surprise from other hotels in KSA. Security was first rate too. As one other reviewer pointed out, it's not the Ritz Carlton; but, neither is the price. All in all great value for what you get and I'll be there again soon. BTW,... More

This hotel is just close enough to the Ritz Carlton to remind you continually of everything you're missing. Don't get me wrong: The rooms are clean, reasonably sized, and the staff is never less than eager to help. But it just doesn't quite reach the level of luxury that it strives for. Rooms can be a VERY long walk from... More
