    Sheraton, a bit old building but nice location

    by

    Sheraton Riyadh lobby is favorate for hot drink for many of my friends, so it became fav. for me too.

    Since opening our doors 20 years ago, and a recent renovation has transformed the hotel into a work of art. Whether visiting Riyadh for business or leisure.

    I stayed here once and I found it confertable. The staff were so friendly, and willing to help.

    I beleive the government has announced big development project that will turn King Abdullah road as free drive without cross points and trafic lights. so they will dig a 600 m tunnel under this area. I believe this area will be working place for some 2-3 years. not good at all.

    As King Abdullah becoming major hug for trafic between east and west, and as Riyadh to witness two light train lines, one on King Abdullah road, and the other on Al Olaya road, you can see now, how the two lines will meet only at this point, where Sheratorn Riyadh is located. (very nice for the hotel future)

    Unique Quality: Location, location, location. on two major streets, King Fahad, and King Abdullah roads.

    Top class hotel

    by

    I was staying at the Sheraton during a two-day trip to Riyadh. What I liked most about the hotel is that although it's run by an American chain they have maintained an Arabian touch, especially in the main entrance hall.

    To enter the hotel you have to go through a security check area where your bags are screened and you have to walk through a metal detector (similar to airport security), but that is also the case in almost every building where you would expect international visitors to go, ie office buildings of multinational companies, etc.

getting a car

by shraz

I am moving to riyadh shortly and not very sure about how the whole car thing works. Do you have to wait until you get your visa before you can get a new car. In the mean i presume i will be allowed to rent. Any details of where to rent would be great.

many thanks.

regards.

RE: getting a car

here's the thing, you need to be clearer, because if you came to saudi then probably you already have a visa, if you mean the Iqama which is a little residency booklet you walk around with, yeah i gues you gotta have it before you buy a car, but in all cases you can't drive around either rented or bought untill you get the Iqama booklet and get a saudi driving license, and the car-rental companies won't let you unless you find someone who deosn't mind but that is almost impossible unless you know someone.

RE: getting a car

Renting a car is not a problem in Riyadh. I have been renting cars for last 8 months or so without any problems. I was on a visit visa earlier and now I have my Iqama (BTW iqama is a card now and not a booklet).

You need a valid visa (type of visa does not matter) and a valid driving license. YOU DO NOT NEED A SAUDI DRIVING LICENSE to rent a car. I have rented cars several times and I still do not have a Saudi Driving license. I have a USA license and that has never been an issue. I am not sure about driving licenses from other countries though.

There are several places to rent a car. You may do it from the Airport or from hotels or elsewhere in the city. There are many choices and I usually rent from Avis at Sheraton Riyadh.

RE: RE: getting a car

by MirrorCrax

Once you get a work visa on your passport (not a visit visa) then you cannot use any license except the saudi license, however i heard usa and some other countries are an exception, but that i'm not sure about, perhaps, you could enlighten us about this matter.... The iqama "card" has not been implemented on all areas in Saudi Arabia, IT HASN'T BEEN IMPLEMENTED IN THE EASTERN PROVINCE, WESTERN PROVINCE YET! AND SO IT IS ONLY FAIR TO REFER TO IT AS A BOOKLET STILL!
