Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by MALA Horrific Stay...
This was by far one of the most horrible stays - my room AC was making very loud noises which the maintenance staff couldn't fix. I asked to be moved but was informed the hotel was full....
On a different note - i discovered that the toiletries were half full with the shampoo not having its top cap on - obviously when the previous guest had checked out, the housekeeping staff didn't change the amenities to fresh ones...
This hotel needs some serious TLC attention.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Don23 Issues with staff
The hotel itself is good, if a little noisy.
The food was not that great and the service patchy. It took an age to order a meal and the bill was presented before I had finished, which meant that I did not order dessert!
The main problems were with the credit card / billing system. On checking in they managed to trigger the fraud system on my main card. As this was then not available for check out, I had to use the reserve card, which was billed three times! At the time of writing I am in dispute with the hotel over the amount charged.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by eg1776 Best Hotel In Olaya District
The Holiday Inn is the best, newest, hotel in the Olaya district. Price is affordable, there is parking, rooms are very clean (and new), there is no noise (be sure to get a room away from the wedding party hall for Fridays). Staff is very professional and treat you like family.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 Need to Improve
This is my second review of the Holiday Inn Riyadh - Meydan. My previous review was quite negative. Although my stay this time was a better experience, the is the need for much improvement.
As a Platinum Elite IHG member, I was grateful to be provided with an upgrade to a suite. My experience with the front desk staff was very positive. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable and the amenities ok. However, it was obvious the shower floor was not cleaned for the first 2 days of my stay because I had dropped the cap to the shampoo container on the floor of the shower and it remained there until the 3rd morning.
Furthermore, the experience in the restaurant was below average. Firstly, I know the situation with Saudization limits the number of work visas available, but there is a critical shortage of staff to assist guests. I only used the restaurant for breakfast and on all 4 mornings, the restaurant was close to full. There were only 3 wait staff on duty and they spent far too much time cleaning tables for the next guests than they did attending to guests already dining. I always had to ask the staff for more coffee instead of them being attentive to my needs. On one occasion, after asking for more coffee, the waiter spilled some of the coffee, which went on the floor. That same coffee on the floor was still noticeable the following morning as a dried stain. This indicates to me the floor was not cleaned within that 24-hour period. This caused me to wonder if the same lack of cleanliness might also extend the food preparation area.
It should be noted the restaurant manager on duty was constantly helping to clear tables, which I commend.
More staff at busy times is definitely necessary.
I am sorry to say that the Riyadh Meydan will not be more first choice of IHG hotels. I have always had a great experience at the Crowne Plaza Minhal and it is always my first choice. However, it was fully booked, as was the Holiday Inn Olaya. Hence my company reserved the room at the Meydan.
I wish you good luck in improving the quality of the restaurant service in the Riyadh Meydan.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by MDdubai Nice hotel but service needs improving
I have stayed in this hotel on a number of occasions. The building itself is clean, recently renovated, but the hotel falls over on service quality:
- Service standards slip when the hotel is busy - when staying at the hotel recently I phoned to change the timing of airport drop off. On three occasions the reception desk hung-up on me as they were too busy.
- Food and beverage - regularly items on the menu are not available which is poor for a 4 star property. Also, when ordering outwith normal restaurant hours from the 24hr menu advertised food is swapped for unhealthy food such as chips.
- Room cleaning - often the tea/coffee/water does not get replenished during the daily room cleaning.
- Poor training - IHG status members often have to ask at reception for the free benefits as staff do not hand these over willingly.
Service is generally better in the HI Olaya or HI Al Qasr, which are very close to the HI Meydan.

I like this hotel but my only comment is about the bed sheets which are not soft, and the curtains don't block the sun light very well. On the other hand, the tv screen is small.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Nasereddin Noisy A/C, Rusty water
This is a new hotel in Riyadh. so room was clean and convenient. staff was excellent and very helpful.
There was no recognition of IHG membership level. I was told that I was given an upgrade but not to a higher spec, just to a room with a better view that with a Highway View!
The A/C was so noisy and fan control didnt work so you need to switch it off to sleep.
Both hot and cold tap water were yellow, you need to run the water for sometime to get (clean) water.
No club/executive lounge which is inconvenience.
I will give it another chance but it needs to meet the IHG brand level.

The Water in the bathroom leaks as drain is poor or small and comes out in the room. I made a complain but no response. Sometimes their is no hot water. I had to change my room for it.
One morning their was no egg in the breakfast. I was told they ran out of supply. Complained was made to GM Mr Dabbas.
We use this hotel for more than 50 nights atleast but to-date we have not been able to get TV channels of our choice. Which are though available in all other good hotels in Riyadh. Many times front desk has been notified but no action so far.
Standard has surely fallen since its opening days. Hope it comes up or else we go else where :(

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SamerOz Exceptional Staff, firendly experience
The hotel is conveniently located in the centre of the city, and the amenities are sufficient for short stayovers. During me regular stays at Meydan, the most memorable experience is the kind staff and friendly atmosphere. Mr Awad in particular has been exceptional is his greetings and ensuring all guests are looked after and taken care of. Well done to all the staff.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Udit87 Good Hotel but very small room
The best part about the hotel is its location. The Hotel also has a splendid lobby and dining. However, the size of rooms is a disappointment when you compare to other Holiday Inn properties world wide.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ycmba20 Great place for stay & Great Staff to rely on
This was my first time to stay with HI Meydan. Since this hotel is newly opened place, facility in general, clean and new, so staying in it is comfortable and cozy. But more value with this hotel comes from its staff, especially from those Guest Relations Managers. They are always smiling, passionate, warm-hearted, willing to help in anything, trustable!!!! I am 100% sure these are the number ones in the kingdom! I had a great time there and am planning to go back. Thanks Awad and Omar!
