“Comfortable stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

I have tried many hotels in Riyadh. But Al Waha Palace Hotel I recommend for any visitors to Riyadh. Rooms are very spacious, tidy & clean. Front desk staff are very friendly and helpful. Especially Ashref & A. Sathar always at our service! This hotel is in the heart of the city-Olaya. Only 5 to 7 min drive to Kingdom tower or Faisalia.

Room Tip: All rooms are very spacious and very clean

Reasonably priced hotel. Great airport pickup service. Friendly staff.

Not a large hotel but rooms are very comfortable and large. Everything you really need without a high price tag.

Stayed here two weeks and will come back again.

The Al Waha is a medium size hotel - not a large palace as one might be used to in the Gulf. Its staff is extremely helpful and friendly. The rooms are large a really very nice. The bathroom is modern with a separate shower. My bed was extremely hard and I had problems sleeping. A friend, who was also staying at the hotel, had a bed with a normal mattress. There is a very nice gym, particularly for a hotel of this size. There's a nice reception area where you can meet people and have coffee, tea or juices.
The hotel is well placed - about a ten minute walk to the nice malls and restaurants. There's a big buffet for breakfast. I personally really didn't like the choice of things, but that's my taste. My friend was very happy with the breakfast. I asked for eggs, which was a bit extra. In general, this hotel is really great value for the price and the room is really very comfortable for even a long stay.

Room Tip: The call to prayer is extremely loud and I imagine is a big problem if you have a room in the front...

Excellent service, ideal location for business. Choice of restaurents around hotel. Taxis are easily available. Mosque is just opposite to hotel. Highly recommemded for your business or for family. I have stayed in near by hotels before but no comparison to Al Waha Hotel - Value for money.
