Spending the night at the airport
Riyadh airport is a large place, and although it is open 24 hours a day, it is not one of the most comfortable for spending the night.
Where to rest: The offer is minimal, but you can find some reclinable chairs next to the boarding gates and the duty-free stores. Another option is to enter one of the VIP lounges, which open 24 hours a day. However, keep in mind that they can have a maximum stay (4-6 hours). SEE VIP LOUNGES If the passenger finally decides to go to a hotel, there is one situated next to the airport.
Baggage: There are no luggage storage offices. This means you will have to keep your bags with you until check-in time.
Eating and drinking: Available options inside the terminals close at night.
Restrooms: Showers are available inside some of the VIP lounges.
Wi-Fi: Free service in some of the coffee shops.
