“Lovely hotel”
Reviewed November 7, 2010

Mena is ideally located on Olaya, walkable distance to Al Faisaliya tower and 5 minute ride to Kingdom Center. Friendly staff, good decor, excellent rooms. The only downside is the food for vegetarians.
They have wifi, flat tv, locker, mini refrigerator - overall excellent rooms. I would recommend this hotel to people who are ready to shell out Rs 6600 per day for b&b.

Stayed at this hotel for three nights on business. At the airport I was greeted warmly by hotel transfer. The hotel facilities are excellent and the management and all staff are very helpful. The rooms are spacious with all the facilities you could ask for; tea/coffee faclities, air-conditioning, safe, flat screen TV with loads of channels, great room service food, free internet connection. the food in the restaurant is outstanding and delicious. I would recommend this hotel to any traveller to Riyadh.

This is a very nice hotel but maintenance team needs a complete upgrade. I asked as soon as I entered the room to fix one of the light that were not working the response was very courteous but the repair never happened. I also mentioned the fact that the room is filled with smoke every night and although one attempt was made to correct the situation by redirecting the AC this problem was never resolved. Only on the last day I was told that the only non smoking floor in the hotel is on the 5th floor. Too little too late.
The staff is very helpful and are always ready and available. The food, mostly buffet style is of high quality. There is free wireless internet throughout the hotel which is a big plus. The first floor rooms around the recreation area have wooden boards in front of the windows. The gym is almost non existent and the pool is really a small four person jacuzzi. There is loud music heard if your room is anywhere near or over the conference rooms especially on the weekends. Overall I would not pay that much for this hotel but it is a very good hotel if you can get a significant discount.
