A very nice and quiet place to relax after a long drive. I'm staying in this hotel since 1992 some stuff are still working with same smile. The rooms are more than nice you feel you are in the intercontinental. A new extension in going on looking forward to it when it's ready. I recommend strongly to visit this hotel.

I had a short stay at this hotel. It was during the month of Ramadan, so the hotel wasn't very busy. I received an excellent service. The staff were attentive and polite. My check-in was fast. My room was a bit small but elegant and functional. The air conditioning was very good: not too cold, not too hot, and didn't... More

I stayed twice in this hotel and both experiences were pleasant. Newly renovated rooms with smart working space. Hotel location is central in Riyadh but the surrounding area is having some roadworks. Very comfortable beds and pillows while bathrooms are clean and spacious. Restaurant selection is limited. Ver good value for money. I would consider again when I am back.

I have been in this hotel couple of time. It is very nice and tidy hotel; clean rooms and good services. I appreciate more the buffet ... It's good choice for business stay nd short term. However The ongoing job around is bit embarrassing and noisy. But in general it's very good experience. I would strongly recommend it.

Stayed there 4 days in a business trip. Rooms are comfortable and clean, bed is good. Staff are nice and helpful. Breakfast buffet is average, not bad but not that good.

Crowne plaza Riyadh minhal is old small hotel. You don't have much to do nearby. There is no swimming pool in hotel. Breakfast is almost same everyday. Hotel is coming up with another building and hoping what all it brings in. Hote is quiet and comfortable though. Pasta is very good in hotel.

A bit old hotel but just expanding and renovating with a new building. Not much to do in the area but at the same time is a quiet one and you can sleep quietly with no noise from the outside. Air conditioning far too chilly, mainly in the lobby and cafeteria area.

Sure this is the best quality buffet I have found among Riyadh hotels; also the staff is pretty much active and helpful, far better than other places. Negative side of the coin: my room was with no windows and the gym is so small that 3 people cannot fit in there.
