I like this hotel because of location, friendliness, staff and service. it is always my first choice when i visit Riyadh. though some rooms needs renovation, but over all it is amazing because of its staff. especially front office manager Mr. Medhat Hussein.

In this part of the world, women can be disadvantaged sometimes but that is not the case in Holiday Inn Olaya Riyadh. From the moment you check in with the awesome people at reception like Syed, Abdulla and Rowell, it is just a delight to get your room so fast with the bell staff ever ready assisting with your luggage....

I visit Riyadh around five times per year on business, and have stayed at the HI, Olaya on most occasions. As with any capital city, hotels in general are not cheap, but I do believe the HI Olaya provides good value for money. The rooms are huge and comfortable and the staff very helpful. The hotel is situated in the... More

Average hotel. Internet was medium speed.Gym is good.Breakfast is ordinary. Traffic in the evening is extremely heavy around the hotel. Service was great although the reception staff needs to learn basic manners (In the middle of taking to you, they will initiate a phone call!),

I have been staying in this hotel on my business trips to Riyadh. It is perfectly located in the center of the city and a cab from the airport will cost between 80-100 SAR. Rooms are very clean and spacious though less modern than other Holiday Inn hotels I have stayed in. It also has a pool, gym, and spa... More

I stayed in the old section of the hotel expecting the worse. I was surprised to see that all room were redeveloped and redecorated to the highest standard. The room was clean and the bed was very comfortable. especially after a long working day.

Stayed here two days for business for the first time. Location is good because it is in Olaya business district. I was upgraded to a room on the 5th floor. Furnitures are a little bit tired but the bathroom had a walk in shower which was a plus for me. Breakfast is of good choice but the quality of the... More
