I stayed 4 nights for business a month ago. It's clean, staff are friendly and it was quiet enough on the 2nd floor. Breakfast in particular was excellent. Perfect place to stay if on business. No extra luxuries, but you don't miss them when you're busy.

The location of this place is superb. It is right besides the computer street and the next best thing is there is a Mosque right next to the hotel, so it is very convenient especially during this holy month of Ramadan. I checked out just a couple of days back from here and would say the service was average. Firstly,... More

Well located hotel in Olaya district of Riyadh, close to the computer market. Decent restaurants around at walking distance. Friendly staff, well sized rooms and the usual amenities one would expect with a Holiday Inn. All in all a good hotel, but expensive.

This was the only Holiday Inn I had not stayed in in Riyadh. The facilities are good, common areas are what you expect from a hotel of this chain. Rooms are spacious and yes, one can open the window (they are usually locked). Breakfast was fine although the breakfast area seemed not big enough and was really busy. The swimming... More

decent and well priced hotel in the middle ( or not sure what the centre is of Riyadh...as there is no real inner centre) of Riyadh. Friendly staff, good food and clean rooms.... As 3 Holiday inn hotels are close to each other make sure you have the right one. Pool needs renovation (!)
