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

The hotel is very comfortable and the rooms are very clean and tidy. We got 2 double beds and those were very soft and comfy giving us a pleasant good night sleep. The staff is very courteous and whenever I needed to call the room service they were always present without any delay.

This is a good hotel for business travellers, and perfectly located if business is in the Diplomatic Quarter. Its certainly not five star, but meets everything you need in terms of room comfort, sleep quality, gym, pool, and even massage.
