Departing from RUH recently, it seems AF does not use the Alfursan lounge anymore in RUH, but a 3rd party contract lounge. Tried to go to Alfursan lounge first but was refused entry. Did bring up SkyTeam rules and show my platinum card but lounge dragon could not care less as the other lounge name was printed on BP...

Anyways, here is what i have on the other lounge:

Name of the lounge
Wellcome Lounge (T2)

On the right after security

Food offer
Decent hot options based on middle eastern cuisine. Didn't try the food as we ate at the hotel before leaving for the airport though.

Drinks offer
Soft drinks and hot drinks (self service)

Wifi: Yes
Showers: Yes (paid option)
Toilets: Yes
Quiet zone: Yes
Business area: Yes
Spa: Yes (paid option)
TV area: Yes
Passengers are called: Yes
Information screen: Yes
Newspapers: none visible

Number of seats

Flashy design, blue and green. Lots of wood touches.

Level of noise
Open on terminal area so very very noisy, especially with constant passenger calls from outside the lounge.

Other information
Honestly not very clean. Cleaning service looks to be reduced in late evening and during the night when the Europe-bound longhauls depart and plates and glasses seem to pile up.
One of three PriorityPass lounges. If you have a PriorityPass and want a calmer and cleaner lounge, go to the Plaza Premium lounge instead via the T2-T1 connector.
Day beds and private rooms available for an extra fee (as with pretty much any service beyond food and drink in this lounge)
