Unfortunately stayed at this hotel during Ramadan, so have not had the same experience I may have had outside this period. The rooms are ok, food is ok, conference facilities ok.
Good friendly help from the front desk staff, cleaning staff and serving staff. Did not have to wait for too long for any services at this hotel.
Staff always helpful.

A one week stay that incorporated use of their conference facilities. Had a person dedicated to all my conference needs, which were minimal as they already had everything set up. I did not start one day without at least one person checking to ensure everything was okay. Nice buffet's every day, if you were hungry at the end of the day, it was your fault. Would stay there again.

Stayed here last week for work. Upon checkin I requested a non smoking room. the room was newly furnshed but they forgot to change the carpet which was filthy and worn. However the bed was ok I had a bad sleap due to the noise of the huge A/C engines just outside the room. The next day I requested a change. The friendly frontdesk staff tolld me that all the non smoking rooms were on the noisy side of the Hotel. but they had one room on the smoking side available but they used it as a non smoking room. Besides that this room had not been refitted yet and was old and worn I found a box of cigarettes and lighters in the mini bar.
Just like my room the food on the breakfast buffet was old as I found moldy bread on my plate. Overall this hotel is 'just ok'to stay in but definatelly not worth 5 star. For 100 SAR more you stay in the Holiday inn which is nearby and much cleaner and newer!

Room Tip: When you need to stay here request a smoking room to avoid the noice from the A/C engines

If you end up at this hotel, avoid eating. After eating a small turkey sandwich at the conference I stayed at the hotel to attend, I had severe stomach troubles, ended up in the ER and spent a couple of days resting at home. It is not 100% determined that the hotel food caused this, but I believe it did. The food did not taste that good anyway.

In any case, this is an outdated facility located in the middle of no-where.

Carlton Al Moaibed Hotel, is a fairly old hotel and though it says it is a 5 star it is seems like a 2 or 3 stars. I was doing a 10 day training session there for a client and though the banquet services were excellent, the room and the food was not something to write home about. The room that i was in was small, housekeeping bad, stained beds and chairs, old and leaking plumbing in the room.

The restaurants are very average, cuisine is a mix of arabic, mediterranean and with bits of italian thrown in. The buffet served was however very nice and a royal spread available on all days, though the taste was very very mediocre. Room Service was not at all good and the menu very lebanese. I usually would order a chicken sandwich was the best in the menu. I ordered a grilled chicken one day, but they sent me a cremated chicken and the room service refused to take my complaint as they said it was well done.

Saw very few international guests, mostly people from the Middle east. The banquet services were good and the staff there very helpful.

If you have to be in that area then, there are there choices like sofitel, this hotel is not a preferred place, but then if you client hosts you there, ... enjoy the buffet!

Room Tip: HIgher rooms are recommended but ask for the newly furbished rooms.
