This is a good hotel to stay in Riyadh with reasonable price. Staffs are friendly and helpful. They provide complementary breakfast. Rooms are very good with living area and the kitchen. The theme of aquarium can be seen everywhere from reception area, lobby, walls to dining tables.

Great hotel with amazing staff. One of their managers, Mr Abdelali was always at hand for any requirement pretty much day and night during my 2 month stay. Very unique concept for a hotel and comes with lots of Aquariums filled with amazing fish, and a pool filled with turtles, a snake and even a baby crocodile! Definitely worth going... More

I spent a significant amount of time at this hotel and while the hotel is old ( although they are renovating), the staff and customer service make this an excellent choice if you are working at one of the Ministries across the road. The staff always made sure you feel safe and secure.

The rooms are spacious. There is a separate living room and kitchenette. I did not expect a room to be that big for only SR 370 per night. The hotel has the best location if you love museums and love to walk. You can walk from the hotel to the National Museum of Saudi Arabia. You can even walk from... More

As the other reviews say its a must see place. I've never stayed in the hotel but spent many hours in meetings in the coffee shop/restaurant. Where you get great service, good coffee and a pool full of terrapins, carp Oh and not to forget the croc in its own pool!!!
