“Enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013

Staying for 3 nights in a realtively small 4-star hotel like Al Wana Palace Hotel (only about 70 rooms) is indeed an enjoyable one as all the staff I met, right from the reception desk, to the restaurant and room servce were very attentive and friendly. And this makes me feeling very comfortable and at home.

The room was nicely decorated with the normal facilities one gets at any hotel. No complaint here. Added on is a free wifi, useful for a business-oriented visit like mine. The breakfast spread is ample and satisfying for me but of course not as luxurious as we find in 5 star hotels. I do enjoy the fitness centre which is well equiped and modern in outlook.

Overall, must congratulate the owner and mangement staff of the hotel. Will like to stay agin in the future.

Room Tip: If one is on a business trip, this will be an excellent hotel reasonable rates and right in the city...

We chose the AL Waha Palace Hotel based on trip advisor reviews and found everything to be up to the standards mentioned. Our room was impeccably clean and very nicely decorated. We had booked via email and all of our requests were met regarding room, location, etc. The bed was very comfortable ( not too firm, not too soft) and we appreciated the variety of lighting and spaciousness of the room . First time we had ever had a docking station for an IPod- nice touch for our evening in the room . The room was so comfortable that we had room service both nights we were there. The prices of room service were very affordable and the food was great- we had one order of the mixed mezza platter and it was more than enough for two people to share with leftovers. The only thing that could be improved is parking in front of the hotel-not too many spots but they had a staff person out there to assist and this was appreciated.
We have already recommended this hotel to our friends and hope to stay there again when we are in Riyadh- Thank you for a great experience!!!

Room Tip: There is a mosque to the front of the hotel so if you prefer quiet you might want to ask for a room...

I was there on a business trip and it was a great experience. I highly recommend this hotel. The people are very friendly and very service oriented. The room was great, clean and modern and even had extra electrical outlets. The food at the buffet was very good and room service was faxt and food was good. The selections in both are a little limited but that wouldn't prevent me from coming back. Check it out you will not be disappointed.

From the moment I walked in I loved it.. the rooms were great even the standard room, the reception both were smiling & they took care of us even when we tried reaching a place we don't know & the hotel is busy they helped us, the bellboys were also very kind & they all remember our room although we only stayed for 2 nights
