Very quite hotel and one of the best locations you can set in. I recommend it for newly married couples. "It's close to Al Rashid mall and Dhahran mall. The colors of decoration should be improved...!

I had my daughter's engagement ceremony in DIH. The parties manger was very nice and helpful. The hotel is one of the oldest in the area, so some renovation is needed, specially for the outside entrance. The food was very nice.

Since the mid 80's DIH is where I stay during trip to Saudi's Eastern Province. Rooms have been renovated it seems and they are fine for me. Food is as usual very good, i love the themed dinner buffet, there is always something for everybody. Free WiFi has a good speed and is reliable. One sad point during my last... More

While entering the room, I felt a pesticides smell for some time. The room facilities were average. You will not get even single bottle of drinking water a complementary. The breakfast as OK for lovers of continental or Arab food. Very limited options are available for vegetarians.

We had a weeding there and it was nice and organized. The halls were big enough for 700 people. And service was great and the security guard always check your stuff in the machine before you go inside the hotel. Which I think it's good. The rooms were good and clean. Not very fancy but comfortable! And we stayed there... More

About the only good things I can say about the DIH is the rooms are quiet and the breakfast is edible and the staff are polite. The decor is old and tired and looks like it hasn't been updated or redecorated since the 70's. This has got to be one of the only hotels left in the world that still... More

Again one of those hotels past its prime. Maybe 35 years ago this was one of the prominent hotels in the area, in where known personality stayed like President George Bush. Since the old airport closed, this is more now a hotel where most drilling and oil companies book their staff for long term stay. We still keep coming back... More

Unless your only other option is to sleep on the street avoid this hotel. It is filthy throughout and the furniture is 40+ years old and grimy. Everything in this hotel feels dirty and disgusting and there is a horrible smell of must everywhere.
