But one thing that you will feel it's the atmosphere the moment you enter the hotel lobby. You will feel that you are not in Riyadh anymore. Riyadh is famous of its strong culture and local customs where you have to follow, but when you enter this hotel lobby, you'll get the feeling that you have "some kind of immunity" because inside the hotel front door, the atmosphere become less strong, it's like you pass the custom at the airport and enter the waiting room for boarding the airplane... it is like that feeling. Therefore I recommend this hotel for foreigner who wish to stay in Riyadh, where you can "loosen up" little bit while you are at the hotel.
The room is like all Ibis hotel. It is small, but I think it's OK as long as you are not looking spacious hotel room in your mind. The bathroom only with shower without bath tub. And since it is built on the dens location, you will only see the wall of building next door from your bedroom window. But I want to give two thumbs up for the sleep quality. In the area where habit of the people to sleep on hard bed, this hotel manage to give the high quality bed with goose feather pillow for their guests. Very nice!
The location is at its most. Only 3-minutes’ walk from the hotel to the Kingdom Tower complex, where you can find nice stores, convenient stores, and wide variety of food selections in the food court. And of course if you fancy to see the Riyadh from up high, you can go to Sky Bridge on the top of the tower.
