The staff was unfriendly at all starting from reception guys to the waiters in the restourant, the internet speed was bad. The breakfast was good and the location is good too at the Olaya street which is near to every thing.

Great location in Olaya, nice room with colorful theme, simple breakfast and good service. Overall, good hotel for business traveler. They also have basement parking with limited space. Wifi speed is acceptable.

Despite the claim that some of their rooms are non-smoking, the fact is that second-hand smoke makes its way through to all of the hotel's rooms through the ventilation system. I'm currently staying on the 5th floor which is designated entirely as non-smoking and I smelling it right now. Some mornings I wake up a sore throat it's so strong....

This was my first time at MENA and I was very pleased with the outcome. Great location, friendly staff, large rooms and a very inviting lobby area make this hotel a great choice for business people. Very courteous and accommodating also for late checkouts and other matters. Thoroughly recommended mainly for business travelers.

Didn't like anything at all! It was not worth the price. Originally priced at 80 SAR and if you buy a cobone, it would be 55SAR instead. Not worth even 20 SAR! Very disappointed. They had pasta, lamb kabsa and chicken fajita as main dishes. None of it was good enough. Chicken fajita was still fine. But lamb kabsa- better...

The hotel had recently been updated and the staff is very accommodating. The rooms were very clean and the amenities were great. My biggest complaint, though petty, is that the electrical outlet nearest the beds where I keep my phone charged would only remain powered if I kept the overhead lights on, which made it hard to sleep.

Stayed on business for one night, located in the heart of the city close to Kingdom Centre this is good place to base yourself. The rooms are basic but clean, the service improved (from my last stay) Better hotels are available in Riyadh but for value and location this is good.
