I have stayed several times in the hotel . There are different concerns with the hotel. They have delayed my checkin although I came after the hotel regular check in time. The people working in the front of the entrance are really bad. The rooms are really old and getting older. I have decided to find another hotel for future...

This is a very slick hotel with extremely attentive staff. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable. My only criticisms would be the patchy nature of the internet access and the antediluvian coffee maker!! - otherwise all was very good.

This hotel is quite legendary and seems to constitute a city in a city, as its estate is truly large and made my stay feel grand.

Hotel deserves a very good rating based primarily on the service, everyone was extremely friendly, a warm welcome and then attentive service throughout is great to see. To room itself was large and comfortable but really does need modernising, especially the bathroom which was grimy and uncomfortable - because of this aspect the hotel does not really meet 5 star...

While the city has been transformed in the intervening period, not entirely for the better, there is remarkably little that has changed in this hotel since I first stayed here over 25 years ago. The quandary for the IHG brand is how to spruce up a relic of a bygone age, a challenge which applies equally to a number of...

The hotel is very friendly, clean and has great services. New gym and great pool plus a golf course. Note woman can't use the gym. This is Saudi Arabia.
