Have stayed here a few times owing to business imperatives - and must say that this is the most avoidable place one can have. Though the location is great in the heart of Olaya, the hotel itself is really Old, and maintenance is really really bad. I was first put into a room on a floor where the carpets would... More

Rooms are not clean and you have to ask for them to be cleaned. Then arrive to find them as is and then ask again. Internet is useless (again, useless) you need to go to a Cafe and work there. Even if you pay for it, this is what they have. Showers swing between cold water and very hot water... More

Since the hotels were full at the time we decided to take this trip to Riyadh, we ended up staying at this hotel since it was our only available option. I am still going with the Pro's and Con's scheme. The Pros: 1. Obviously the availability of the hotel. 2. The close proximity of the hotel Failsaliyah where you can... More

I have stayed at Tulip Inn Olaya House multiple times during my trips to Riyadh. The hotel, as I mentioned in the title, has the distinct advantage of being on Olaya street. Olaya street is the address of some of the major malls in Riyadh. Al Faisaliya mall, Kingdom Tower, Jarir Bookstore, the Computer Market are all on Olaya street... More

Priced in Riyadh are high. But saving is not recommended. The non smoking room in this place was anything else but non smoking. Dirty. Bad service.

Very basic, with sewage issues, took 18 hours to get laundry back. Room service wasn't bad - pretty good Lebanese food. Try somewhere else! :)
