Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Kingdom Centre Tower is a must-visit landmark in Riyadh. The Sky Bridge offers breathtaking panoramic views of the city, especially at sunset. The tower also features a high-end shopping mall with a variety of luxury brands and dining options. Its sleek, modern design and excellent facilities make it a top destination for both sightseeing and shopping in Riyadh. Highly recommended for an unforgettable experience!

    This was the highlight of our trip to Saudi Arabia. The views were amazing. I am so glad I went with Omar’s staff! The best!

    plans to spend at least a couple of hours here and you will learn a lot. On display is a skeleton of a Platybelodon and Ichthyosaur; very interesting also the huge meteorite that was found in the Wabar crater. You will learn about the pre 14 pre Islamic Arabian kindoms on the Arabian Peninsular 5 BC - 700 AD. The overall collection is marvelous.
    The outside gardens are also worth visiting and enjoying

    Masmak Fortress is a true treasure of Saudi Arabia's history. Stepping inside feels like stepping back in time, as you immerse yourself in the rich heritage of Riyadh. The fortress's sturdy walls and iconic mud-brick architecture stand as a testament to the region's resilience and strength. The museum inside provides fascinating insights into the Kingdom's founding, with well-preserved artifacts and informative displays. Whether you're a history enthusiast or simply curious about Saudi Arabia's past, Masmak Fortress is a must-visit destination that leaves a lasting impression.

    A beautiful park you can enjoy with family and friends. Rides and toys are the most attraction for kids. Lovely and peaceful park at the heart of Riyadh

    The mall was decently big but I think there could be more places there. The cleanliness was amazing as anywhere in Dubai.

    Unfortunately when we reached the mall it was under renovation and many shops are still closed. We only found two shops open.

    Excellent museum, wonderfully displayed, well worth a visit. Very informative and enjoyable. Two full floors of exhibit halls. Plenty of room, well laid out, easy to follow the floor arrows so as not to miss anything, and the restrooms we’re spotlessly clean.
