Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh
Ranked #17 of 227 Hotels in Riyadh
Reviewed September 15, 2013

Mediocrity rules at this hotel.The room cleaning services are particularly disappointing with little or no effort made to clean bathroom floors, rearrange scattered clothing,etc.The buffet breakfast is prone to missing items- no orange or grapefruit juice for two days,no bananas most of the week.One or two "old Hands" keep the place ticking but there is a lack of English speakers on reception and taking room service food orders although the cooking can be good.Two week stay at company expense.I gave them my personal email address so I cold provide some feedback but,typically, they never did send one.

With the big hotel chains you get what you expect, standardised quality, not less and not more. Rooms are modern, spacious and clean, service is professional but inpersonal. Breakfast is expensive if not included in your room rate (138 SAR). WiFi is free and fast. The hotel has a well equipped gymn and an outdoor pool. The hotel has three restaurants (Japanese, Italian, buffet), of which we specifically enjoyed the Japanese. There are no other restaurants in walking distance. I can also recomend the hotel's airport pickup service (130 SAR)

Radisson Blu in Riyadh is my first choice for every stay I make in Riyadh. This hotel has been renewed lately and is situated on a slightly busy street with good access from Makka road. it is close to the commercial area of Malaz and about 20 minutes from Al Ollayah street where you have the Kingdom tower mall and Faysaliah mall. I appreciate to be nicely greeted every time by the same staff and my reservation is mostly as expected. I am nicely surprised from time to time to be upgraded to suites or Deluxe rooms. All rooms are nicely furnished and have always a nice bureau for business activity. The Deluxe rooms are big and with a specific furniture. The suites are also nice with a rotating big flat screen TV that can be viewed from the coach in the living room or from the bed in the sleeping room. Very convinient. The amenities are always from good quality and the rooms are clean. The air conditionning is always set too low and you can find yourself in rooms around 18C. Shilly for most. At level 4 you find the food area with 3 main restaurants: an italian exquisite dining, a food display area for breakfast, lunch and dining and an Oriental restaurant with show style food preparation. On the display area you should watch for the special nights (sea food, mexican, oriental, ...) as the offer is very rich and the food delicious (especially sea food with 'eat as you can' grilled lobsters and prawns). the weather is usually very hot outside and the terrace of the display area can only be accessible in cool periods (from October to March mainly). On the special nights you can also find a furnace for bread preparation. Nice hot bread is always a delight. The lobby is small with a nice 'cafe' shop offering cold and hot drinks with quick snacks. You can also taste the cardamon coffee from a small dispenser niched inside the lobby and attended by a coffee master (with gluey dates also offered). Beware of periods of conventions and exhibitions as this htel is always fully occupied.

Room Tip: the rooms on the street (above the lobby) are noiser knowing that the quality of noise isolation is...

Stayed on 4 different occasions in this hotel and every time I cannot but commend it for service, attention to detail..

When they say "yes I can", the team at Radisson Riyadh do mean it and always with a smile.

This goes a long way to taking the headaches out of travelling in what remains a very foreign and different country

A favourite among the Radisson group of hotels!

A typical Radisson Blu, idea for business in central Saudi Arabia - good service, clean, decent fitness centre and pool and three restaurants to choose from. Restaurants are expensive, but they generally are in Saudi Arabia. No complaints in 8 years, will go back.

Room Tip: Corner rooms are much bigger and usually not more expensive. Just ask at check-in.

Good service, great room and good restaurant.

Location is not ideal but the hotel amenities make up for this.

The restaurant offers themed nights and the Arabic and Seafood themes offer. Wide selection of good quality cuisine that is reasonably priced
