Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mohd - Bahrain Worst ever experience in IHG Group for the past 15 years
Bad welcoming , Bad room, It wasn’t the first time to get treated badly, however, i decided the give them 2nd and 3rd, 4th chances due the management promises that they will change and enhance the service level and guest satisfaction. However, I reach a level of confidence that the management team of Holiday Inn – Olaya is worst across all of IHG group, and will never ever stay there again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Alem Great new building
This is one of the leading hotels in Riyadh. I've been upgraded to an executive room due to my platinum IHG member ship. I always recommend to stay in the new hotel building which has a great lounge on the fifth floor. Also in this review I would like to thank Mr. Medhat and Mr. Ahmed from the hotel reception for their great hospitality.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by madmax2 About average
On the plus side the rooms are large and the gym is quite well appointed (especially for cardio machines but there is also a decent multigym and some barbells to play with).
On the minus side I found it difficult to get the room cool enough (second stay in a row, though not the same room so perhaps it is the a/c system). Having to go to the building next door to eat dinner is not very convenient but it is only a short walk. There is a good selection of starters and mains but let down by the desserts I feel, which lack variety and seem to have been left out for some time so starting to go stale.
They also forgot the wake up call I had booked to catch my 4am flight.Luckily I had set y phone as back up. The system for booking wake up calls (the receptionist scribbles it on a piece of paper rather than a computerised booking) does foster errors,since if they are subsequently distracted it may not get formally booked.
Also the taxis waiting outside the hotel re very expensive compared to normal ones. Their meters always seem to be not working and the trip to my office costs SAR 50-60 compared to SAR20-25 on the return journey from a normal taxi.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KAP2014 Great Staff and Service
It has been a pleasure to stay at Holiday Inn, Olaya. The entire staff is always very helpful, accomodative and prompt in their serivice. The FO Manager has been very supportive during my stay. Really appreciate the hospitality very much...
There should be a recreation room for men though (current indoor sports facility is inaccessible) other than the gym.

I stayed at Holiday Inn Olaya on my last business trip to Riyadh. This was my first stay at this hotel. What really caught my attention was the room size. Very clean and spacious. The internet is free. The check-in was seamless. If the hotel can have more staff around just to assist customers in general, it would be perfect. My room did not have complimentary breakfast, which was a slight inconvenience.
Overall, it was a good stay and I will be returning back!!! Cheers.

We stayed in this hotel for four days. The hotel is centrally located and is very convenient to reach it and also go to different places from it.
Most importantly, all the staff were extremely helpful and they have gone out of their way to help us in different aspects. I definitely plan to stay there when I visit Riyadh next time and also recommend it to others.

Holiday Inn Olaya is in a very strategical location between the King Fahad St and the Olaya st. Very ideal for relaxing after the busy and tiresome work day right in the business center of the city. A very big Masjid near by walk able .

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AndyShaw Splendid Hospitality
I travel to Riyadh regularly for business, and Holiday Inn Olaya is my preferred hotel to stay. There are many reasons for me NOT to choose any other hotel. However the primary reason is superb staff and service quality. Everyone knows me by my name, and take care of my special diet needs. I am a strict vegetarian and like Papaya very much; they included more vegetarian options and Papaya on the food spread. I am personally impressed with Front Office Manager, Restaurant Manager and his staff, as well as Chef . Housekeeping and laundry department gives special attention to you daily needs. The hotel staff gave me a surprised birthday cake and wished me as soon as I arrived. I was very happy with this gesture. I highly recommend anyone to stay here because of the hotel’s fine end to end service.
