I stayed in this hotel for a long time while my company was renting it for its personell. It really depends on what room you get. Some rooms are very old and in a bad shape while some are excellent. Try to get rooms 290 and 291 (I think?) or rooms close to these rooms as they have huge TV's,... More

It is not modern, furniture is old and so are rooms, comfortable bed, good laundry service. The food is brilliant. By taste and variety. It has a big gym, fitness and weights, and a huge pool that can be closed and used during cold season.

I have stayed here every time i visit Saudi Arabia and have found this to be a wonderful location to visit. The food is exceptional with excellent variety and first class service. The rooms have been rebuilt to reflect the most modern Western standards. I have traveled around the world to many locations and have had some of the best... More

Threadbare towels, no cold water on first day, sheet to small for bed, stains on bedroom carpet and blood stain on bed frame. AC very noisy, paint flaking off the ceilings and looks like it was last decorated in 1980. Staff were really good. Breakfast was average but sufficient. Buffet dinner was good each night. Location is good for aramco... More

stayed there for 4 years, so it can't be that bad. I found the staff very friendly and cooperative. Good value for money hotel. The renovations are almost done, so everything is looking good. Recommend to anyone doing business with Aramco because it is very close and convenient.

I am probably the oldest customer of this Hotel and pretend knowing and tell several things about the place. I wish to bring some comments on claims raised but that to me were not justified. Why complaining about the tent when it was the only option while upgrading the main restaurant room and other facilities? Ridiculous! Content everyone during this... More

This hotel is little more than a corrugated shed in a desolate, windswept location. No local amenities, and disinterested staff. Of the advertised facilities only the pool and gym were functional. The sauna was broken as was the bowling alley, which has been out of action for at least 6 months. The squash court was "under renovation" but on closer... More

This hotel has the award for me as the worst I have ever stayed in! The reception area is a false hope as it looks nice...then you go behind the scenes and you get; Seriously understaffed, and the staff they do have are totally inept and not really bothered, the rooms are atrocious with dirty carpets, unclean bathrooms, broken furniture...
