“Good Hotel in the Heart of city...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 2, 2011

It as a good experience for me to stay in this hotel. It is nice hotel, faced some difficulty in checking in but at end it was OK.

Good to be in the center of city near the kingdom tower. It's on the main olaya street.

Easy access to shopping area and near by stores.

Good Food in the Restaurant .. Including breakfast.

Free internet is a plus. Sh mall parking area, but it's ok. Good health club.

Nice to be in Riyadh in this hotel.

Room Tip: Check in the room near the wifi.. As may face difficulty in using internet..

An excellent hotel in central Riyadh, Saudi arabia, overlooking "Kingdom Tower". I stayed here in October 2011, for 6 nights as I was attending a course in nearby Hospital. My room was on 5th Floor overlooking main street but due to effective Double glazing, outside noise was minimal. The view of night sky-line is impressive, with illuminated nearby buildings offering photo opportunities. The rooms are well appointed [suites available] complimentary toiletries supplied daily,tea/coffee making facilities, hair-dryer,and good power shower. An iron and board is available on request. Flat-screen satellite TV offers good selection of channels. There is free wifi-internet throughout hotel, and cable connection in all rooms. There are many designer boutiques, indoor malls etc. all within a few mins. walk from hotel. There is health/spa/swimming pool, sauna available free for guests. I shall stay here again when I am next in Riyadh.

Hotel staff very friendly, rooms are clean and spacious. Breakfast for international travelers nicely prepared in a separate suite (due to Ramadan) with a great selection of different foods. Good sound insulation. Reasonable price
Great gym.

Pros:
Good location
Comfortable rooms
Good breakfast (buffet)
Good value
Pool & gym
Free internet

Cons:
Reception staff are disinterested / rude / apathetic - it takes real skill to be as bad as these guys.
Slow dinner service (in the lounge area)

Get beyond the perception that the check-in team create and this is a nice modest sized hotel that I am happy to stay in. Generally the lower down the food chain the staff are, the better the service they give. A smile can make such a difference.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2010

I have stayed here several times and besides the check-in staff who are often moody, the hotel delivers consistently friendly and good service. The facilities are unexpectedly good, especially the indoor pool and the gym. Free wireless everywhere and free wired internet access in the rooms is much appreciated. The rooms facing Olaya Street can be a little noisy and the lack of a business centre is a drawback.

The Executives is continually improving and adding to its services. The restaurant is much improved. I recommend the suites in the hotel - there is a lot of space for the money and the relatively small increase is well worth paying. Some of the older problems in terms of service have now been sorted out and this hotel is as good as any in Riyadh. The only disadvantage is no outside space.
