Like Sarah H from New York, I simply don't understand the negative reviews. I arrived with low expectations based on Trip Advisor and was very pleasantly surprised. The Pro's -- 1) Totally clean throughout [or it's one stay and done;] 2) Personnel were lovely from the Front Desk to the Breakfast Buffet to the Room Attendants; 3) The breakfast buffet...

This hotel is clean. The rooms are relatively modern. Location is perfect for business in the diplomatic area. It is however very isolated. If you are considering this as a tourist then this is definitely not the hotel for you. It's adequate.

Nice business hotel for 1 or 2 nights. Nothing around the hotel except fast roads. The diplomatic quarter is just across the fast way for which you need a car to go there. It is a clean hotel. One restaurant, no way to change except by car. The restaurant variety is acceptable. There is also a coffee area in the...

I don't understand why people are being so down on this hotel. It is exactly what it states to be - a business hotel near the diplomatic quarter. The staff is lovely, the hotel restaurant is quite good for a hotel (buffet was great both nights!). It's right off the highway and near a specific set of interests but far...

Nice hotel with staff that are quite friendly although the odd one was a tad grumpy. Restaurant staff at breakfast are good and make you fell welcome. Nice big rooms, comfortable beds. The views are nothing as it's next to the road. Very long corridors to get to the rooms and mine was at the far end! There is a...

Someone else booked the property for this visit, or I would not have returned after the 1st visit. There are far better choices in Riyadh, but this property stays busy because of the location close to several Embassies. Rooms could not be more basic. Employees & staff are first-rate & professional. Restaurant provides a pleasant & large variety for breakfast....

This is the 2nd time I stay there in Riyadh. Fast check in and out. Fair enough wifi. You should try their room service for food, the way they serve and taste of them were successfull. Nice big rooms with clean bathroom. A bit expensive but deserves it.
