A well located hotel for the business district of Riyadh, the hotel staff make you feel welcomed and are friendly and attentive to requests. They ensure everything is good and any issues are resolved quickly. As a gold member the breakfast and dinner executive lounge are a great benefit.

I was very impressed by the exptional service from the moment we arrived at the airport until the check out.
Amin & Redwan from front desk have been wonderful and they have gone an extra mile to provide a quality service that Holiday Inn Olaya should be proud of.
The banqueting team has also done a great job and made our IHG Event a great one.
Wish you all the best in future and continue to go beyond your guests expectations and be a leader of IHG standards

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Chanel297 Superb staff!
It has been several months since i have been in this hotel and i was pleasantly surprised to find out how people still remembered me upon checking in again after maybe 5 months .One of my concerns whenever going to this hotel is that they do not have a gymnasium for women. Mr. Medhat took care of this concern like in 24 hours! It's like magic! everything i ever ask from him, even my colleagues would also ask from him, he immediately gives us amazing results. I now call him Mr.Fix-it-all :-) Oh sure everything are mostly in order in this hotel it is just that if you ever need anything attended to asap, then he is your man!
I would like to give credit also to the staff at breakfast and the lounge especially Tawfiq and Fuad. They just anticipate the needs of the diners and they welcome you everyday with gracious greetings.
Last but definitely not the least was the housekeeping person on the 4th floor where i stayed then-- i am not sure anymore of his name Aslam maybe, who kept my room super clean and very organised. I just wonder if they have firmer bed mattresses which i much prefer. Also look out for this truly cheerful guy Rafiqul who makes rounds on the floor making sure you get some fruits or goodies, he is such a delight to see and talk to all the time.
Thank you all for making each and every stay an awesome experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Groszek That's how a hotel should be like!
I love this place. The Staff is very nice, food is very good (although the restaurant is definately too expensive). The hotel is localized in the centre, close to the Tahlia street, AlFaisalihah and Kingdom Tower. Great place, totally recomended.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Aabdulsa Unlucky
I have always been unlucky and seem to receive bad rooms with either no adequate closet space or dirty spots, sometimes holes that don't go away.
This is even though I come here on a weekly basis
Reception staff are very welcoming

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sunandrain Booked a superior room got a standard one
I was dropped off at the new building having booked a superior room with breakfast etc included. after checking in I was told that the room was over there... as I discovered in the old building.
If you stay here stay in the new building its far better.
having booked a superior room with included breakfast and so on, I was put in a standard room. After much pestering I finally received access to the executive lounge for what its worth on day 3 of my stay.
Room was not particularly well cleaned and the usual extras like bath robes etc did not arrive until again I pestered several times.
I sent laundry requesting folded with no starch so it was returned on a hanger with starch.
finally to top things off they tried to charge for breakfast. This was removed at checkout to be fair, but the hotel, then phoned me up to add the charge back on after I had left. When I reviewed the bill I noticed that they had charged me for a second person in the room. I did complain but no one has come back to me.
I've stayed here before and it was OK, but this stay was entirely disappointing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Inkdude4 Holiday in Olaya old building
I was collected at the airport and taken to the new building where they checked me in very efficiently. i was then sent over to the old building for my room.
the room was very tired and could certainly do with a make over.
During the night there was a lot of noise in the corridor lots of young Arab guys running about shouting and banging doors.
food in the lounge was good.
I had a business guest over for coffee in the lobby and he noticed the table had several inches of dust and dirt on it which was embarrassing.
the new building is much nicer and I would recommend asking to be put in that building if you stay here.
