Stayed for one night, good service and good location in Riyadh. The property is a bit dated as is the rooms, but for a short stay it was fine. Clean sheets, clean towels, and free wifi was great. There was a pool/gym which I didn't have the opportunity to use. Breakfast had some good options considering I stayed during Ramadan.
