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.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Poor Guest Service
1. Poor room service / housekeeping, need lot of reminders for getting small things like power adaptors. Take at least half an hour to deliver after many reminders.
2. No room cleaning is been done even till 4.00 PM on next day of arrival.
3. In club lounge many times some breakfast items are not replenished. Take too much time for getting it replenished.
4. Though Roberto made a taxi booking for airport drop, they simply told that there is no booking and if you have done the booking please let us know the name of the person on reception who was present at the time of booking. (Who will remember the name of the person in reception?). So we took a street cab and went to airport.
5. When I tried to speak to their guest relationship officer regarding this booking issue, he simply told that it’s not his responsibility, reception executive should take care of the same. (This was not expected from Guest relation officer)
6. I was having some gift boxes which were quite heavy, I requested for somebody’s help to bring those down at the reception at the time of checkout. I waited for a long time but nobody turned up.

Happy to be back.
Excellent and attentive service, from check in to check out.
They had a good recognition for my IHG status.
The front office and F&B staff were very friendly and professional.
This hotel is like my second home, I stay in it every week.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by almayer1 Hotel ok, service has to be improved
Hotel is ok, rooms are clean and modern, service is a hit and miss. Booked a car to the airport for the morning, when I arrived to check out the car was not ready, had to take a normal taxi but they had already charged my credit card for the fare! Took some drinks in the lobby, asked for peanuts & chips, waiter said they don't have them, only available in mini bar, if I wanted them I could go back to my room and take them!!!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Ali-Ahmed Restaurant condition was bad, unclean, and food quality was not up to sta
I stayed at many Holiday Inn's in Saudi Arabia but this must be one of the lowest I rated.
I had breakfast at the restaurant on the first day. The tables and chairs looked like those of a cheap cafeteria, not something a Holiday Inn would use.
There were liquids spelled all over the floor with no one to clean them up. I almost sat on a chair which was soaked in juice, tea or something else.
Milk and juices were not available when u needed them.
Food quality was no so great.
The bathroom was clean but there were bad smells coming out of the wash basin and the room was filled with bad smells as a result.
It's definitely not a place I would recommend nor would stay at again in the future.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Jamal12 Good service but noisy room and bad airport transportantion
Overall the hotel service and location is good.
The noise in the street can be heard inside my room.
I was very unhappy about the Riyadh airport transportation pick as I had to wait for around 30 minutes before my hotel driver arrived to pick me up from the airport

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Frequent_biz_traveller Comfortable stay and Excellent service
My recent stay with Holiday Inn - Olaya has been satisfactory. The staff have been very friendly and addressed my needs adequately.
I think one key comment I will like to make is that there should be bed side power sockets. We do charge our phones and use it as an alarm by the bed side table. I requested the hotel to provide me with an extension cord and they immediately obliged the same.
The breakfast options are good. But I would suggest that they change the menu sometimes. It gets a little boring after few days to choose from the very same options.
The swimming pool should be open till late evening to take advantage of it after coming back from office.
