The location of the hotel is good in the center. Car parking is available and free. Bed and pillows are comfortable. But: It is old, with overused furniture. Smoking room were given to me without asking by the reception staff. The restaurant is traditional.

Whenever I visit Riyadh i stay in this hotel. A good solid business hotel, rooms are spacious and kept clean. the staff are very helpful but are clearly following a very restrictive. Its location is near to all shops malls and companies. 5 stars rating is deserved

The hotel is well located - except if you need to go towards the Diplomatic Quarter, to get on the highway westwards is a nightmare with the traffic in Riyadh - but so is the HI Meydan. The staff is alright - one of the waiters and the supervisor at the restaurant were the friendliest - but could benefit from... More

Good solid business hotel, rooms are spacious and kept clean but they are starting to look worn and tired. The staff are very helpful but are clearly following a very restrictive and regimented play book which limits their ability to really be of service. As road warriors know it is all in the detail. If you are going to deliver... More

This hotel, situated from a stone's throw away from my workplace in Riyadh was my home for nearly a month on a business trip. The reception area, with beautiful and often elaborate flower arrangements, looks warm and welcoming and Arabic coffee and dates served by the staff completes it. The rooms are cozy. The hotel also has a fitness centre... More

When comes to accessibility , friendly staff , moderate prices (compared to other 5 stars), Holiday Inn Olaya comes as one of my favorites. I stayed alone , with my family , all for business purpose . It is not big, some what old Furneture , reflects negatively on mattress quality . The most annoying is the lack of proper... More

I have stayed in this hotel before and this is my second time here. The experience started with the Airport pickup. Luckily I had my immigration cleared in minutes and had no checked-in baggage. Was delighted to find that the driver was on time for landing. The check-in was really smooth. The staff very courteous. Most importantly the rooms were... More
