Had an overnight stray at Riyadh airport. This is the nearest property to the airport. As with everywhere in Saudi Arabia, you know approximately where it is but it is difficult to find. Take one wrong turning and you have to drive about 30 miles to get back! Property access is very scruffy getting off the road, acc as is...

Again one night at the Makarim... The hotels main clients are Airline personnel that works for Saudia Airlines. The rooms are standard size and the beds a bit on the hard side. The rooms are not well isolated. Hence it's easy to hear noises on the hallways etc. The hotel itself could need a little refurbish as it looks all...

The hotel staff were all very helpful and whilst there were some minor issues on my arrival and allocated room, without me asking (or complaining) the hotel manager upgraded me to a Junior Suite Room along with a fantastic bowl of complimentary fruit. I am grateful and impressed with their ability and willingness to assist. On the downside, when I...

Nice hotel, good service, with gym. All the facilities are really good. At five minutes at the airport. But it is completely isolate from the city or shopping center. If you need to take the plane really early in the morning this is you hotel. The dinner buffet is quite big with diferent choices. Cheese tablet really good.

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...

“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.”
