If you are a single female traveller and you look for the hotel in Riyadh, I can strongly recommend HI Olaya. My stay was very good, room comfortable and clean and I felt very safe and taken care of. Reception personnel ensured all the time that things are going well and whenever I needed anything, they were very helpful. One... More

Nice hotel Friendly staff Easy check in and check out Clean room Nice food too It is two separate buildings so if your room in one building and you have business presentation in the other building you have to walk like 3-5 minutes in the car parking

Rooms are nice. Room service food is sub standard. Chefs do not even master the basics of cooking. Check out took more than 25 minutes because the printer broke down. The Hotel is far below any international standard.

But after being platinum member, i can got extra large room with free dinner on the executive lounge. The breakfast was awesome, but little bit bored after weeks. The hotel staff was... More

Sadly my room was not ready on a 20.30 arrival. Waited half an hour for room. Then only had room with 2 singles. There are 2 different and separate buildings for this hotel, I stayed in the East Building. Sadly the porter was somewhere else so I carried my own suitcase to the room. The room was great though. Had... More

very nice hotel, staff are very helpful with your hotel's need and even the city of Riyadh, what you need is almost there, and still the location is 1 of the best, you want to be in the middle of the crowed, to buy any computer's need, it's only 1 minute away(walking), if you want calm, stay inside the hotel

You are new to Riyadh or already visited any number of times, you will find this hotel as your home away from home. They not only extend warm welcome on arrival but also try their best to meet your needs on breakfast / dining table. This property is well maintained and centraly located in Riyadh. This hotel provides a very... More

Stayed there for 20 days. here is my impression: Very nice stuff and helpful, the room is large and clean. Do not take a room towards the motorway though since then it will get noisy. Good breakfast variation (with mostly Indian dishes). During first day of Ramadan they offered free Iftar dinner (probably for IHG member only), room service is... More
