Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by atkhan Very friendly staff and good quality of service.
The staff was very friendly, and whenever I called reception they helped me whatever the time was.
Also the breakfast served was good and all the staff serving the breakfast were friendly. The floor manager was always present and looking after personally the needs of guests during breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Coerte Great Value in Riyadh
I have stayed here twice now and can fully recommend it. Nice fitness area and small pool which is hugely important in a city which offers little other things to do.
Staff is very efficient and helpful to an unusual degree in Saudi Arabia!

I had a great time during my stay for 05 days. The whole crew were all accomodating and caring.

Location is good. But, the east wing has flaws on poor Wi-Fi and food services. You need to walk to West Wing to eat

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Safety Tony Riyadh - Olaya
The Holiday Inn Riyadh - Olaya is a very nice hotel. The staff is great and make sure that you have everything that you may require. the rooms are nice and comfortable but alittle dated. I also think the hotel security needs to be increased. With the number of western expat guests staying at the hotel and with the rise of situations in the Middle East Security needs to be beefed up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Andyiz Ideally Placed in Olaya, helpful staff and amazing service
Had been here last month for 3 weeks and planning to visit again next month.
Hotel is ideally placed near the computer market at Olaya. Lots of options both within and outside the hotel for food(within walking distance). Famous Kingdom dates is also within walking distance from the hotel.
Hotel staff and their Service had been very good so far. Internet had not been as per my expectations(speed less than 1 mbps) and the staff assured me that it will improve as they are working on it.
Their Internet system infrastructure set up also expects that you login to the internet every single time you go out of range or get back to the hotel after work or otherwise. I have been to so many other hotels where once you get to the hotel and login once, you dont have to login to the internet again and again untill you check out. Their IT infrastructure needs to rethink i feel.
Having said these, kudos to the helpful staff and their service. No issue(s) with that.
My strong recommendation in case you plan to visit Riyadh!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by #Brian# Nice place to stay
This is a clean, comfortable hotel with exceptionally large rooms (executive suite) and a very good breakfast buffet. I found the staff to be friendly, helpful and professional. I have stayed here twice and had good experiences both times. This will likely become my go-to location for staying in Riyadh.
The one suggestion I have for improvement is that it's an older building, so not wired for today's traveler's needs. There is only one power outlet at the room's desk, which isn't enough for most business travelers that have cell phones, tablets and laptops. There was one wall outlet in the room, but it turned off with the lights, so not much help. When I mentioned this at checkout, they told me they have power strips to borrow, which is good to know for next time, but they really need to update that aspect of the rooms.

very bad and unprofessional reception. I called 50 times in 30 minutes to complain that the air conditioning is not functioning and room temperature was 32C, without any reply. When I went to reception they told me they don't answer calls from rooms because maybe the guest called by mistake.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by AlRewesh Extremely dissappointed
I am sorry to be very negative on this review, although I have written many positive reviews in the past.
This must be my 20th visit to the Holiday Inn Olaya, and like I said I wrote many positive reviews in the past... but this particular stay everything was negative.
I was checked in cordially from the reception manager, who kindly upgraded me to a junior suite because of my Platinum IHG status. The room was excellent of course...except for the Pillows on the bed!
I checked in rather late at night and wanted to sleep ... the Pillows unfortunately were smelling of sweat & other odors !!! I was shocked.
The next day I was checking out... I was advised to have Sehour in the adjacent Holiday Inn Olaya...
I walked in to the adjacent Holiday Inn Olaya, the service from the concierge to the reception was totally UN-Welcoming!
Anyhow... going to the hall where the Sehour food was served, the waiter pointed me to a table...
The food quality offered was HORRIBLE to say the least. The cold cuts were almost rotten or dried up because they have been out for too long... the salads were finished and the ones that were refilled had many flies stuck to them... the food plates were all DISGUSTING to say the least.
What made matters extremely worse was the waiter who ran up to me screaming to me that my room was not included in the FREE buffet for Sehour. I know that! and I am ready to pay... but the attitude and seeing the HORRENDOUS quality of food on the buffet only made me feel DISRESPECTED and I left annoyed.
I asked for immediate check-out and of course not to include the cost of the buffet which I was almost ushered out from...
When the receptionist saw my Platinum status, he immediately reacted trying to resolve the previous fiasco.... I rejected and advised him that I will negatively comment on the Survey as soon as I receive it.
I have been recommending this Hotel to everyone from my company...and I have promoted more visitors to this Hotel... but unfortunately I will take all this back until I see a better service and a much better quality.
