Good value. I wish they warned us about the news from the work on the metro opposite the hotel.

Great value, perfect location!

The Ibis Riyadh is a great option for all travellers seeking modern accommodation at a reasonable price in a good location. The hotel has all the amenities you need, is quiet and the bed very comfortable. We highly recommend them for your stay in Riyadh. A supermarket and pharmacy are nearby as well as a hot bread shop and the kingdom centre is a few minutes walk away too. We definitely will be booking them for our next visit to Saudi Arabia later this year!

Decent hotel, terrible service

By no means does ibis Riyadh follow the European standards you would expect from the chain. The hotel is well-kept and central but is understaffed and the service is terrible. You can never reach the reception or housekeeping. The lines are always busy or nobody picks up. I even tried calling the emergency number and it was the same. Getting help at the reception takes about 30 mins and some of the staff is not helpful. They knock on the door early every morning to ask if you want your room cleaned or laundry - that's archaic. Overall, it's a decent low-budget hotel that I would only ever stay at if there are absolutely no other alternatives (which on most days, there are).
