“Responsive management”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

See my earlier review, because it's still mostly relevant. However, it's worth noting that shortly after I commented about the cigarette smoke in the lobby, the management banished smoking from the lobby altogether and created a confined smoking area. This has made the entire place MUCH more pleasant to be in; it's also emblematic both of the management's desire to increase customer satisfaction and the employees' often incredible responsiveness to any wish a guest might express.

Room Tip: Ask for an even-numbered room. In the odd numbered rooms, the plumbing in the bath is installed &qu...

On a trip in December, coming from cold Europe, I stayed in the hotel on a Friday. As the weather was sunny and - compared to freezing Finland quite enjoyable- I decided to take a sunbath at the poolside. However, Friday is Brunch time at the hotel, so in my short trousers I was surrounded by women in abayas and men in dishdashs. I felt misplaced and stayed 15 min only...
By the way, hotel staff confirmed, it is ok to wear short trousers at the pool side, but still don't use the pool side on a Friday afternoon.

The Hotel is divided into several buildings with one new one on the way. the hotel is modern with nice breakfast with options ranging from Arab to western. The internet is somewhat slow but that is normal in KSA. There's only gym in one of the buildings what makes it not so comfortable to use if you're not in the gym building. Only outdoor swimmign pool not usable on the evening. The choice of restaurants is limited and expensive even though the buffets are not bad, being the best the one by the pool with wide offer of fresh -grilled in front of your eyes meat and fish.

Room Tip: Choose the building with gym and swimming pool as also have the best restaurant

I don't know if you can write that a business hotel is cozy, but it is difficult to find another adjective to describe this Holiday Inn. I stayed there almost a full week. The staff was very friendly and helpful, my room quite spacious with a proper bathroom, and the interior design of the lobby and corridors elegant with some local elements as well. All the meals I had there were buffets with a very good quality. The limousine service in the hotel was efficient and prices in the European scale very reasonable. The gym in the hotel was very good for a hotel gym, but the spa quite average. The hotel building might need some paint or make-up in the outside. The location was perfect for my visit to the conference center. Holiday Inn Izdihar has that something that warms up the heart of a business traveller.

This hotel is almost ideally located for the airport and the university. The rooms are very quiet indeed, clean and with reasonable wireless speed. Breakfast buffet has a wide choice of international food, and omelets made on the spot.

Room Tip: book well inadvance to have reasonable prices

I didn't know what to expect from the Holiday Inn Izdihar as the reviews were a bit mixed but I was pleasantly surprised.
The check in was smooth, friendly and efficient and the staff went out of their way to find me a non smoking room ( the hotel was full).
They even checked the room first as they explained that sometimes guests ignore the no smoking rule in these rooms.
The rooms were cleaned daily and on request. Extra requests such as more pillows were also dealt with promptly.
The most impressive factor was the food in the restaurant which boasted a very good variety of starters, mains and desserts. The service in the restaurant was also exemplary.
All in all a very positive five nights in this hotel.
