Whenever I am Riyadh, this is always the hotel that I go. It is a very secured place and close to the airport. The staff are very welcoming. To top it all, the bed is large enough that you get all the comfort you want. This is definitely the place to stay.

I must say after reading some reviews i went expecting the worse. But to my surprise it was far better than expected. The sevice was good especially the reception fast checking n courteous. Starbucks n baskin robbins available. For soudi standards i would rate this as a good decent biz hotel

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.
