Radisson Blu Hotel, Riyadh5.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
I stayed in this lovely hotel during my recent business trip the service was impeccable, the room was large and very comfortable with a full sized lounge with sofas and a desk, the bathroom was spotless and included all the toiletries that you will need. The breakfast was buffet style but all fresh and very tasty, all in all I had a great time at the hotel.
The hotel is in the heart of Riyadh, we were running around the hotel but it took sometime to find the entrance. it was quite nicely hidden. Personel is very attentive and nice. the rooms are very clean but I think there is no bellboy, cos we had the carry our laguages ourselves.
Now, this was my 6th or 7th stay in this property in the last 3 years or so. I used to like it here. The location was quiet, the staff was great. The last visit which concluded last night was so much of a shocker. Granted that the construction work around is not their fault, and I dont honestly worry about it much, because i assumed at the end of the drive the stay would be pleasant. Well, it was not. For some reason, the valet took his own time and behaved like they are doing me a favor moving my car. Well, maybe a one time thing i thought. But it happened every time during my stay. Check in and check out was smooth.My room had a television that was actually crooked. When i switched it on, it had terrible reception. For some reason, the bathroom smelled. Breakfast was a disappointment, the staff simply did not care. The coffee was actually burnt and terrible. I somehow got the feeling that the staff have given up and just dont care. Asked for a last checkout for 2 hours, which was usually a given for a Club Carlson member. Was told it can only be one hour. Was so annoyed, checked out before time. Now, I may not be an important customer for the hotel to lose sleep over my comments, but unfortunately never again here. I think its time to move hack to the Holiday Inns around Olaya next time around, from where I actually shifted to this hotel.
Clean, modern and beautiful facility - excellent food choices and outstanding service. Laundry, tailor and car service provided upon request. Extremely quiet location and comfortable rooms. Definately would recommend
This is a disappointing member of the Radisson Blu group. From the outside and in common areas, the hotel looks beautiful. However, the rooms are as disappointing and forgettable as the rest of the overall experience. The service at the breakfast restaurant is particularly poor. Here the waiters seem more concerned with getting you to sign the bill than serving your food. On a particularly frustrating morning, I had the server give me the bill as I was still eating (not having asked for it), and then walk by five minutes later to thrust it onto my plate because he didn’t bother to check that I signed it (I had). The service from the broader hotel staff is equally disappointing and they fall way below the standards of the rest of the Radisson Blu group. Despite being a loyal Club Radisson visitor, I will not be returning.
I stay at rsddison blue sll over the eorld and this is not the best one. Rooms are tired and this hotel has forgotten its primary aim is to provide a good nights sleep. I have never experienced such a hard bed.it wss like sleeping on the floor. Just terrible. They do have a good japanese restaurant but drinks arrived 2/3rds ofvthecway through the meal. Which reflects the service levelscthroughout the hotel. Just not great and certainly not up to a 4 star hotel standard. All in all, a hotel that gives the impression of needing some management attentikn and investment.
I stayed here nearly 6 months ago with a team meeting for work. The hotel staff was very attentive and took great responsibility to assure our stay was comfortable. The front desk staff and manager were excellent. Nice breakfast in the morning and the gym was clean and had nice natural lighting. Thank you for making our stay enjoyable!
Stayed for 2 nights in Sep 2017 for a business trip. The room itself was okay and clean but pretty average. There was only one large towel (standard should be two large towels), no tooth brush (had to be requested from reception), only soap but no shower gel. It doesn't matter if these things are available on request - the standard should be that they're all in the room already. Food was very good. This applied to breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The rate is very high by Asian and overall Middle Eastern standards, but apparently in line with Saudi domestic standards. Nonetheless, from a value-for-money standpoint I would never recommend this property. The worst thing was: A stay at our corporate rate (via hotelzon.com) of 700 SAR = ~185 USD per night is not eligible for earning Club Carlsson points. It is the only well-established loyalty program that doesn't award points to guests booking via hotelzon.com - the biggest corporate booking platform worldwide. IHG, SPG, Accor, etc. all award points even if you've booked via hotelzon.com
We are staying there for 3 days business trip, it started when we arrived to the airport , we insisted several times that we need 2 cars by email and offcourse they send one car and when calling them they insisted that they received a request for only one car (we had to show them the email where they acknowledged it coldly) the driver they sent to the airport where very selective in his English understanding! Once in the hotel , no hot water in the room, can you imagine that in a 5 stars hotel! First and last time in this hotel !
Great staff, really good breakfast and brilliant conference facilities. The food is a bit pricey - a pizza is twice the price of one in a dedicated pizzeria. Many have said not in the best part of town but really? An Uber can takes you anywhere in the centre for less than 20 sar. Nothing to compare it with but I was very happy with this hotel for a 6 night stay.
