This hotel is a pleasant place to stay, the food is good, the staff is excellent-- however I've only given it 4/5 due to the price. After about 2 weeks staying here, my "normal" expenses (breakfast, dinner, laundry, no room service) totaled around 15,500SAR or just over $4,000.
The rooms: Perhaps not the most modern, but they are clean, spacious and in excellent condition (they don't look "worn out" or anything)
The beds: It's like a giant pillow-- very comfortable beds and bedding
Showers: Nothing too amazing about them-- except for the hot water is hot almost immediately. No waiting for 5 minutes before hopping in.
The food: Delicious food with a wide buffet selection or quick service at the Silk Road restaurant in the hotel
The staff: Pleasant, friendly and they always recognize you and know your preferences (drinks at dinner, room number, etc)
TV Channel selection: Eh, there are a number of channels, but not too many western ones. Still, not a big deal either way in my book.
Internet: It is fast and reliable..... and 100SAR a day. So the hotel wants $25 a day yet I barely pay $50 a month at home.
Prices. I understand the quality and service is great-- but when the rooms are already about 800SAR a night, charging another 100SAR per day for internet and 100SAR for breakfast is pretty ridiculous. I'm sorry, internet should not be anywhere close to that expensive and while the breakfast buffet is large, there is no way someone is eating $25 worth of food every morning. Tone it down some guys.
The service is great, the hotel is nice and I'll stay here again without thinking twice--- because my company covers it. However, for the budget minded, you might want to look elsewhere or in Jubail, etc.
