I recently spent five nights at this hotel. I checked in at about 2am, the gentleman at the desk was very pleasant, polite and quickly checked me in to a room on the 7th floor facing the back of the building. The room was decent, albeit relatively tight. There was a drip of water that was coming from a pipe in the ceiling/AC that kept dripping all night and woe me up. When I mentioned it to reception in the morning I was immediately given a new room which happened to be a suite. This room was about 3 x the size on the 2nd floor. Staff were all very pleasant and helpful. Buffet breakfast was pretty good, with a mix of Western and middle eastern cuisine, lots of fresh fruit, fresh fruit juices and the usual eggs etc. I had the dinner salad and dessert buffet one night which was pretty good, didn't see what the main dishes were like but the dessert was pretty good.
Overall this was a good business hotel, with good, FREE wifi connection, and was close to the business trips I needed to make. There are two supermarkets near by, some other shops, a few restaurants offering a variety of foods and a couple pharmacies. It is also next door to Budget rent a car. If I were in Riyadh again and had business in this area I would definitely stay here again.
