The Ritz-Carlton, Riyadh
Ranked #1 of 224 Hotels in Riyadh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 December 2013

Very luxurious, excellent service, probably the best hotel in Saudi Arabia. Comfortable rooms with many amenities, there is even an espresso machine in the room. Room service and valet service.
During Ramadan Iftar they have good starters and but the main course is not up to the mark.
Try there arabic coffee and blueberry cheese..

The hotel is new and clean. The stuff so freindly and the dinning in the room so delicious. I would like to thank Mr. Karem he was the supervisor in the day shift. I arrive with my wife to the hotel at 8:00am in the morning and he was so nice and jenirous with me because he gave me the room without charging me any thing. Usually most hotels charge you 50% for a night if you want earlly chick in. Thanks for him and I will stay again in this hotel.

The rooms are large and new. Nice Seating area and a big bed. I felt spoiled until... I Walked into the bathroom. The shower is one of those you stand in the slippery bath to shower ....no separate shower cubical. This was a big let down and was incongruous relative to the room and the rest of the hotel. The hotel is opulent in the extreme, staff are pleasant. The lobby has what looks like the four horses of the apocalypse until you look closely ...they are geldings as the naughty bits are missing so not to offend local custom. The pool is outrageous and so are the chandeliers. It's a hotel that you can say I stayed there when you see it in a magazine. A little over the top in my eyes but then the bathroom brought me down to earth with a slippery bump.

Forget the gym, the cartoon sign over the breakfast area and spend the rest of your time soaking up the surroundings to this stunning hotel. Built opposite the embassy district, hence the security, and a 20 minute drive to the city, this hotel ticks all the boxes. As for the interior, no expense was spared, just amazing throughout, cumulating in a pool near a selection of restaurants. The service is excellent a, the atmosphere and environment well thought though. Almost perfect.

Impressive building, impressive lobby and facilities. The hotel is located just opposite the diplomatic area, so very convenient for Embassies visitors. The rooms are spacious and very confortable. The bathrooms are very clean, big and set with Bulgari amenities. You can choose between the Italian restaurant, the Chineese or the Buffet restaurant. They have also a bowling where you can have some fun with the friends. The indoor pool is amazing but you can only use it from 6 AM to 6 PM.
The most luxurious hotel in the Kingdom!

Amongst the 3 most prestigious hotels in Riyadh. Located outside of the city centre due to security reasons, VIPs like Blair and Bush are said to have stayed here during their visit to Saudi. Hotels like this offer literally anything you could need, and if they dont, they'll arrange it for you. Nice luxury rooms, spacious, expensive decoration all over, even shower gel is best of the best. To me, cherry on top of the cake was breakfast, did not know where to start, probably the best I've ever seen anywhere in the world so far. Great stay, would definitely return if I came to Riyadh.
