Holiday Inn Riyadh - Al Qasr
Ranked #27 of 224 Hotels in Riyadh
Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

Good for business and clean
Complimentary water is not generously provided
Employees don't always respond to calls, you'll have to keep ringing to get lucky!
Some hotel staff are not friendly and not professional at all, even at reception... However, a reciptionist their (Abdalla) is very polite, knowledgable, helpful and kind.

The hotel is located in the main Olaya street next to shops and restaurants. Nice lobby area and clean rooms but over priced for holiday inn chain. Food quality are average and lunch buffet is definitely poor at the same price as dinner buffer which is much better.

The breakfast at the lounge is a bad experience, does not worth paying for.

In general that is what you get in Riyadh, Holiday Inn actually this is better than the other Olaya holiday inn. I consider the Hilton garden better in service and caring to customer.

Room Tip: Do not pay for the lounge package.

I agree with most of the reviews; the hotel is centrally located in Olaya street so it is very convenient if you have meetings around that area. The hotel and the rooms are clean, the room rate is quite convenient compared to other chains in Riyadh, the food may be quite expensive.

Excellent location, clean and modern hotel. The staff is friendly and helpfull. The buffet very good even if I would say it is expensive comparing with other restaurants in town. The bar in the lobby offer snacks and salads at any moment. If you are non smoker avoid the third floor.

Went there 2 years ago, and loved the stay, the rooms are very big more like a suite. Very confortable and clean, price a bit high compared to other Holiday Inns, maybe the suites thing
Breakfast buffet is good, internet quiet fast , location is also ver convenient, in the middle of the city

Worked a number of weeks at the Holiday Inn Al Casr in Riyadh.

Found the conference rooms reasonably well equipped, although the data projectors' brightness are still measured in candle light I think (these are really not expensive anymore and should urgently be replaced).

The conference rooms are all separate with no interference from your neighbours. On-demand coffee/tea/juice and pastries are available throughout the day (although the pastries become dried out later in the day). Recommend smaller quantities at a time and to be replaced half way through the morning.

We found the young assistants responsive and friendly.

Lunch was absolutely great, with a variety of food available.

The latter part of July proved difficult for the air-conditioners to keep up, especially in the afternoons. The one room's aircon had a terrible smell as well. Perhaps time for a upgrade or major maintenance?

Overall a positive experience, except for the old data projectors.
