    Location is good.

    Tried to make airport pick-up arrangements, they were never confirmed and no driver was at the airport. Safe in room did not work. Room service phone line did not work, only found out after complaining to the operator. Trying to get coffee in the restaurant for breakfast was hopeless every day. Gym equipment outdated.

    Good acommodation and nice reception, but there is a very important point that the hotel added an extra tax fee athor than the fee provided by your company. They have cancled the extra fee but after a long argument. What I mean is that the hotel must comply with the price provided by you. Generally, the hotel is fine.

    The hotel is good. Since three years i've been booking at this hotel beacuse of its hospitality and location.

    Very comfortable beds

    I had a suit and the sofas were very dirty and I complaint but nobody changed them, also it takes ages to pick up the phone for housekeeping

    From a business point of view the internet facilities were excellent. The bbq in the evenings was first class with excellent food.

    The knowledge of personnel about nearby facilities was not acceptable. It is very hard to make yourself understood to various staff memebers. Also checking out was very difficult due to errors. On the website it states 15 / 20 minutes away from exhibition centre. That may be so with no traffic but it takes much longer most of the time as the traffic in and around Olaya is very bad.

    very central location.

    There is no enough attention to the swimming pool and sauna/

    It was close to business district, the majority of my business meetings were within 10 min taxi ride from the hotel, it was in the middle of shopping shopping areas and close to a large shopping center.

    Hotel in located along Olaya Street, in the "Computer Shops", area just few minutes walking distance from the main spots in Riyadh city center.

    They've two separate building. Make sure you get your room in the newest one. They've had problem to find back my reservation made with Booked.net and I've been requested to check out/check in every single day to get the fares booked on this site... Receptionist are veeeeeery slow and many times I've seen people complaining with them while waiting in long rows. I had to ask three times and wait more than one hour to get my room cleaned up the first day. Rooms are pretty noisy, especially if you get one with communicating door. The first night there was a very noisy party in the ballroom that went up until 3am. Don't forget to bring your earplug if you're bothered to sleep in the noise.
