I had a 9-hour layover at Riyadh but staying at this hotel from midnight through the morning helped me get re-energized. While it was pricey, the room was excellent. The buffet breakfast had enough choices but the friendly waiters made it a good choice. I look forward staying in this hotel on my next stopover again.

Hotel is used almost 100% as a transit place for Riyadh airport. And they follow this mission, not offering what you don't need but satisfying what you'll probably expect. Sometimes you have to repeat your request or wait bit longer. But generally good standard.

I was on a work trip with a friend here. The housekeeping never answers the call. The rooms dont smell very clean. Me and my friend ordered the same thing for breakfast but while checkin out, we had separate amounts for the same thing. Surprisingly!! And on top of that, the manager asked to pay it instead of getting the...

Checked in at the Makarim hotel last July, had a 7 hours layover so my best bet was to find something extremely close to the airport (5/7 min drive). The check in was extremely fast (just like my stay). I have to admit, the bed/pillow were so comfy, you'd fall in a deep sleep fast. Didn't have the chance to...

Nobody probably expects that this will be a romantic or quiet place. Right - it is not, But the services offered are professional, hotel is clean and breakfast OK. If you just need to sleep and then wake up for the next flight, this hotel will not disappoint you.

The hotel is suitably situated for all those that want to spend one night close to the airport. There is no real luxury and the personnel is mediocre. The price is rather high for what you get (200$ for one night)... But then again, it's close to the airport (about 5 minutes drive).

I usually stay at this hotel when I have flights from King Khaled International Airport. Staff are friendly and the food is fine otherwise nothing else is special about it but it is very convenient since it is very close to the airport.

“This is the first time I stay at this hotel, I did not check the reviews prior to my trip, just needed to stay close to the airport since arrival was to be late and departure at midnight, but to my surprise there are some no so good reviews while I have no single complaint about this great place, then I think there must be very different types of rooms, do not know, make sure you get the higher class rooms and you will love it.”
