The HI Olaya is a hotel I stayed countless time from 2008 to 2011 before Al Qasr and Meydan came along. I chose to stay two nights these week for nostalgic sake. Surprisingly, after 8 years there were not much changes - lobby and mediocre breakfast was the same and the rooms no different. I booked the executive floor on... More

Been there many many nights. All is OK, not fancy. Staff is professional and courteous. Good value for money. Beakfast is adequate, room service as well. Also the gym is OK. Try to get business floor rooms, they have their own lounge and desks.

Stayed for one night, good service and good location in Riyadh. The property is a bit dated as is the rooms, but for a short stay it was fine. Clean sheets, clean towels, and free wifi was great. There was a pool/gym which I didn't have the opportunity to use. Breakfast had some good options considering I stayed during Ramadan.
