My first time at this hotel and the room was comfortable, although the workspace area is very small, at least in the room I had. Bathroom is fine and cupboard space more than enough for a week's business trip. The kettle and re-supply of water and biscuits was a nice touch.
The reconstruction is still going on, but this did not bother me, staff were pleasant.
The only annoying thing was having to pay 135 riyals (USD36) for a couple of pieces of fruit, a croissant and a pot of green tea. Next time (if there is one) I will bring my own green tea and have breakfast in my room.
I paid a mere 50 Riyals for a club sandwich for lunch one day which was better value than the breakfast
