Good Location for Airport

Posted Jun 12, 2014 on Hotels.com
The Makarim is the closest hotel to Riyadh airport so if you dont have to go to the city it is the best option. Hotel is very comfortable and restaurant is good although on the three occasions I have stayed there I hardlly seen another person. Hotel pickup service is good although have the hotel phone number handy as my plane landed at a different terminal so missed the driver and had rather worrying taxi driver who did not know where to go.

This hotel is clean and to a high standard. It is about 3 KM from Riyadh airport. A very nice restaurant on the top floor with great middle east salad buffet. Good for stopovers.

The Hotel Makarim Riyadh-close to King Khalid IAP

Posted Jan 4, 2012 on Hotels.com
The hotel is overpriced and depressing. It is advertised as five star, but does not even deserve two. Fixtures, fittings and plumbing are old and not up to standard. On returning to my room on the second day of my stay I found that my room hadn't been cleaned even! Wi Fi connection was very weak and completely died for a while. While washing my face the water stopped, and then gurgled back to life. There was a constant noise from the lift or some other machinery throughout the night. There was supposed to have been a bathrobe provided, but none was. Credit card should have been used only for incidentals, but total amount for stay was taken on check-in. Only thing in its favour is that it is convenient for the airport. However, if there was another hotel nearby, I would gladly stay there instead.
