“Great for Business...and Families on Friday!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

I stayed at this Hotel from the 7th to the 10th of January as I had to come to Riyadh on a business trip, and this hotel was the closest "brand name" hotel to my business venue.

The hotel is in a convenient location with good access to most business districts in Riyadh. design and decorations are relatively new, and the rooms are a good size (for 1 person).

What really impressed me about this Hotel are two things, the Bed, and the Food!

Their beds are extremely comfortable and allow you to get a great night's sleep. The comfort of the bed really stands out if you compare it with other hotels.

The food in the hotel is extremely well prepared. I ordered the Grilled Jumbo Shrimps and they were very well prepared and tasted great. Room service prices are good, not overly priced.

Another plus to this hotel is that they have a Great Family Friday Brunch for approximately SAR 200. If you are a food connoisseur then this Brunch is a must try.
Also, if you like BBQ then this Brunch is perfect for you. There is a grill station right outside the restaurant and grills of Kebab, Meat Cubes, Chicken Shish, Shrimp are all very well prepared and barbecued.
There is also a play area for Kids and a clown to amuse them, paint their faces, etc. This would count as a really nice outing the whole family can enjoy by Riyadh standards.

Based on the above I would rate this hotel as very good, for the great sleep and great food!

There are two sides to this hotel, right and left, but the right side is considered the main building.

A very quick stay I shall stay, but a very pleasant experience.
On driving in, I was actually confused as there was two blocks for the hotel across a road. Anyways I proceeded into the West and got in..Nice.. The reception was very welcoming, and me being a priority club member was given the best service, onto a decent room and even was given a free drink voucher (which I never had the time to use). The rooms were very good, clean and perfect for a good night of sleep. The sleep was so long, because of my work over load, that I missed breakfast time.. Should be in there again soon!!
The best advantage I see of the hotel is its proximity to the airport and being on the ring road, easy to access to any part of the city as well.

Very new and clean hotel with amazing staff who were very helpful and hospitable. The room was very clean and comfortable. My only take is that the pillows at holiday inn hotels in general are of poor quality, especially if you are looking for a soft pillow. Staff misinformed me about breakfast which was mentioned to be between 6-10a.m. but failed to mention that it was not free for Royal Ambassador status/booking. I was charged 30$ for breakfast, which was good but not worth 30$. Very reasonable pricing compared to similar hotels in town, probably due it its location.

Good and comfortable rooms and excellent for a relaxing sleep.I was in KSA on an official trip. I was tired after a hectic day at work and then the evening flight to Riyadh.

After a long immigration que at the Airport, reached the hotel at 1 am yearning for sleep. With a meeting in the morning, sleep was the only thing left to look forward to.

I must say that the sleep quality was excellent. A comfortable sleep revived me. Wanted to have breakfast but was short of time. Maybe some other time.

But I was satisfied with whatever little I experienced of the Hotel and the services

Room Tip: Rooms on the 1st floor are the better ones although they are slightly costlier

Very light and airy hotel, great rooms, very clean, plenty of power outlets, including a couple of three-pins. Excellent free internet access. Good restaurant, and buffet breakfast v good. Pity about the miserable staff - no smiles :( Very good gym and pool area. Only negative point is that I asked for an 04.30 wake up call, but I didnt get it. Luckily I had set the alarm on my phone as a back-up, so no harm done. However, the early morning guy on reception didnt even apologise for the mistake

This is a two level hotel a bit far from the center of Riyadh. The area around the hotel is just residential and nothing special to see or do! As for the hotel itself the rooms are clean and of normal size for the region but in need of renovation as everything in it was old! The personnel was very friendly and always eager to help you! The breakfast was above average and I enjoyed it.
For a business traveler he will find free wifi internet and a business center with computers, fax machines, printers etc. There is also a gym and a pool that I had no time to check so I can't really comment on those. Overall although it is not a bad option, there are better options on the same price range so do your search before booking.

Room Tip: No big differences between the rooms.
