This is by far the best hotel in Riyadh .... the only downside is location other than that the rooms the service the very high-end atmosphere and the restaurants are just perfect. If you are staying for leisure, a short stay, or business well this is the right place.

Amazing hotel even for a Ritz Carlton. Beautiful lobby, rooms and immediate setting with large water fountains at entrance. The service was superb. The breakfast was also very impressive. Great location close to the diplomatic quarter of Riyadh. The security was also very impressive. I highly recommend the hotel to all business travels to the Kingdom.

Incredible stay. This is best hotel I've ever stayed at. From the moment you arrive until you depart, the service is the best. The entire staff makes you feel at home. The Club Lounge is a great touch - it's a combination of dining room, concierge, laundry. They call you be first name. The business center is absolutely outstanding. Best...

I like everything in this hotel to be honest, the rooms are clean, the bathrooms are big, the lighting inside the rooms is excellent and the staff is very friendly. The only thing that the Ritz can improve on is the buffet food. They have an Italian place on the ground level that does very good food, but the wait...

I stayed in this for the first time and I was amazed about this fabulous property. Very wide lobby with excellent restaurant menu and buffet. The only thing that you need to know is only hotel limu is available if you want to go outside which may have impact on your allocated budget.
