I had my dinner at Panorama Restaurant, located on the highest floor ( sorry I don not remember floor number ), with a nice view to see all the areas around you. Planes Taking Off, and... More

Checked in at the Makarim hotel last July, had a 7 hours layover so my best bet was to find something extremely close to the airport (5/7 min drive). The check in was extremely fast (just like my stay). I have to admit, the bed/pillow were so comfy, you'd fall in a deep sleep fast. Didn't have the chance to... More

Nobody probably expects that this will be a romantic or quiet place. Right - it is not, But the services offered are professional, hotel is clean and breakfast OK. If you just need to sleep and then wake up for the next flight, this hotel will not disappoint you.

The hotel is suitably situated for all those that want to spend one night close to the airport. There is no real luxury and the personnel is mediocre. The price is rather high for what you get (200$ for one night)... But then again, it's close to the airport (about 5 minutes drive).

I usually stay at this hotel when I have flights from King Khaled International Airport. Staff are friendly and the food is fine otherwise nothing else is special about it but it is very convenient since it is very close to the airport.

Busy hotel but mainly used by air crews as it is near the airport. Room was comfortable but outdated, staff were friendly and food was ......... Let's say ok. If and when I go back I would be pushed to stay here again. On the plus side , the bed was massive.

The airport is very close to a hotel. Another saying this hotel is very far away from city center. Rooms are nicely designed. Are spacious and clean. But the internet is quite slow. If you plan to stay more than one night you will need a car.

I have been to the Makarim now on a number of occasions for Company seminars and meetings. Facilities are decent sized complete with all required presentation aids, so no complaints so far. However the buffet meals have not always been to standard. A number of times the hot food has been more like luke warm and the choices were somewhat... More
