Where to begin? For the first two days of my stay they did not issue me a room key--some problem with their system--which meant having to wait (sometimes as long as 15 minutes) for someone to let me into my room. As another reviewer mentioned, there are many internet connection options--none of which works well. This made using Skype impossible...

I used to stay in that hotel at all my business trips to Riyadh, the best thing is that you feel every time like every time like first time. Highly standards and consistently there. You start by reception staff who make you feel at home, then facilities, food, atmosphere, gym and all. Really if there is a hotel should take...

It is not an easy work to make any positive review to any place in Saudi Arabia but this time was too much. Waiting around 25 minutes to make the checking was only the beginning. I ordered some food when I arrived to be delivered to the room as I was hungry and the food was ready before the room.....

Booking a hotel when the US President will be in town is not easy. When the hotels recommended to me were full, I had to look elsewhere. I found Al Waha Palace Hotel online and the reviews looked good. On arrival I was ignored for a while at check-in. I eventually got to hand over my booking number and a...

Hotel was within reasonable walking distance of centre, although not much in the line of restaurants around it. All the Hotel's staff were friendly and very helpful. the Hotel is quiet and well maintained. Very good shower, but remember to remove the plate over the drainage hole to avoid water over-flowing.

The location is very good, just next to a large mosque, downtown Riyadh, and has very good view. The staff were so friendly and helpful. The food is not bad at all. The Internet was super fast, and much more.

Have stayed twice in last two months. Room allocated during second stay had new king-size bed and more comfortable. Late check out option available helping if you travelling late at night. Breakfast buffet offers wide range of Arab and Western dishes plus eggs cook to order. Staff are attentive and eager to serve. Overall good value for money!
