Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area
Riyadh airport is a large place and is open 24 hours a day, so it is possible to spend the night inside the premises. It is advisable to bring a mask, as the lights are very bright, and blankets or a sleeping bag due to the very strong air conditioning.
Where to rest: You can find some recliners by the boarding gates and duty-free shops, but the best options are the Arrivals Halls, where there are long, comfortable sofas. There is also a quiet, carpeted prayer room. Another option is to enter one of the 24-hour VIP lounges. However, be aware that they may have a maximum stay (4-6 hours). If the passenger finally decides to go to a hotel, there is one located next to the airport.
Baggage: Luggage storage services are available. Ask at the information desks for prices and capacity.
Eating and drinking: The options available inside the terminals close at night, but there are vending machines for food and drinks.
Restrooms: Showers are available in some VIP lounges.
Wi-Fi: Free unlimited service.
Other services available 24 hours a day: ATMs, currency exchange bureaux, pharmacies.
