when we walked into our room my friend and I were not immediately satisfied with how the room was arranged so we called in formation and Walter who was about to off shift answered the call. We were so pleased he arranged everything to our satisfaction. GREAT JOB!!

The Olaya Holiday-inn is a comfortable business hotel, the rooms are new and spacious, the free WiFI works perfectly and the service is impeccable, good food and central location last but not least the price is very competitive. I have been in many hotels in Riyadh and this is one of the best.

This hotel actually consists of two separate buildings, though next to each other you never know which you will stay in. the modern one has a nice fresh interior and reception, the older one has a more lived in reception.

I asked for water from him since i told him to rely the message to the housekeeping and the water bottles came the next day because i followed it up. I gave him my IHG number and i confirmed...

I was impressed with the hotel, very friendly staff and for me as a vegetarian a great evening meal from the buffet. The room had good facilities (the iron and board in the room was an unexpected bonus), and the bathroom was clean and spacious. The late checkouts (3pm standard, 8pm for 50% of the room rate) was a real... More
