They seem to have gotten every detail right. Let me list some of them:

• The room size is just big enough without being overly spacious. Very large rooms are a waste and less comfortable. There is room for everything I have and need to do.

• The décor is simple, elegant, and tasteful. A pleasing aesthetic environment is important for both comfort and productivity.

• The work space is out of the way, with plenty of room for laptop and notes, with a comfortable office chair, task lighting, and handy electrical outlets. The window at the desk is a very fine architectural and ergonomic feature that allows me to relax my eyes by looking into the distance. A great plus.

• Lighting is very well thought out, with bedside lights and even a night light and closet lighting! Amazing.

• I was very pleased to find plenty of power outlets in every location in the room. This is so crucial to business travelers who bring so many electronic devices with them. I have stayed in large, expensive rooms that did not have adequate power, which is both annoying and frustrating.

• The generous coffee/tea tray has its own space and its own power outlet. Again, I have stayed in many rooms where it was inconveniently located and in the way, without its own power.

• There is shelving space all around the room, which is so useful for all the odd items that I must deal with (car keys, business cards, notes, etc.)

• Both WiFi and broadband LAN. Best of both worlds.

• Free on-site parking. A big plus.

I could go on, but you get the idea. But I also should mention, the staff is friendly, courteous, and very attentive without being intrusive, and the Al Yasmeen restaurant is comfortable with a fine selection of delicious food.

Staying there was a very satisfying experience, delightfullyt so, and better than most.

From the moment of arrival at reception to the waiting staff and cleaners, this hotel gave the best customer experience I have ever had in Saudi Arabia. I believe that Mr George provides the training - whatever he has done has worked spectacularly well. The rooms are beautifully appointed and relaxing. Give it a try your next trip to Riyadh.

I had my weekend spend in Riyadh and chosen this hotel because of its location. It was called Holiday Inn before, and right now it has been renovated and still some renewal is being done. The hotel is comfortable, the room is spacious, the buffet is diverse, the front desk personnel are very quick and helpful, the valet car parking is free, the daily newspaper and everything else was always available with a smile. Before I leave this review, I asked on my reservation a cradle for my baby, and the request was confirmed while check-in (without me asking) and provided in minutes from entering the room.

Room Tip: Call them to get a better rate and/or a special request :)

I have had the pleasure of staying long term at this property on two occasions. As a world traveler with stays totaling near 240 nights per year this has got to be my favorite property for business. The shower water is strong, the room is comfortable, the food is fantastic, .

I really recommend this hotel. It is under renovation, ok, so there are some noises from 9am to 6pm, but who cares, you are out working anyway. Then there is the excellent breakfast, the really modern, trendy, high tech, and tidy room, excellent TV, minibar, bathroom etc... Finally there is the really efficient and welcoming staff. The reception and restaurant area are really old, but the renovation pictures show that this will change dramatically in the near future. All in all a good hotel, that will become outstanding once the renovation works are done!

Have stayed here recently for a business trip.


During my check in it seems that the booking was made for the week after but being a Platinum member the Mr. Faisal Al-Hadi the manager on duty was extremely helpful in finding an alternative. Although the hotel is still under renovation Mr. Faisal managed to give me half a suite which had a functional bedroom and bathroom but the rest was still not finished which was absolutely fine.


The suite was nice clean and crisp, it had a massive bathroom with a fantastic rain shower style shower and a jacuzzi.

The breakfast was good with a wide variety of Arabic and Western style offerings.


I recommend this hotel for business trips as it is central to the main highways and is easy to get in and out instead of waiting for elevators or walking long corridors.

I look forward to visiting the hotel after all the renovations are finished.

Room Tip: Renovated rooms away from construction
