This Hotel is located in a prime location and has good accessibility to shopping or Office. Food was quite decent, rooms are clean and nice. Service was good. Accessibility for taxi is good. There is a computer market just around the Hotel for your electronics shopping needs.

Great location for business traveller to Riyadh. Safe and secure, if a little dated. Best buffet of the HI I use in KSA. Check in and out takes a very long time for some reason. Dining on the terrace is nice, if it's open.

i've been there several times (mostly because my company had agreement). The place is very well located and if you enjoy Cuban cigars I recommend to cross the bridge and visit cigar lounge.

I have been coming to Holiday Inn Olaya for the last 12 months and it has been always a great experience. Although front disk gentlemen keep changing, the premium service remains the same. On my last visit I had two more colleagues with me and Mr. Barakat along with Mr. Radwan were very helpful, friendly and above all professional. Staff... More

This has been one of the most disappointing hotel stay ever in my life. The place is practically dead with rooms which might have been renovated 20 years back. The upholstery is so dirty that you can't even sit down on the chairs in the room. The price charged is absolutely disproportionate to what they have to offer....i.e. a 5... More
