Comfortable hotel, well located in the main area. Room was very nice and breakfast was great, with hot meal cooked at the momento. Transfer from airports available. Not too much needed to say. It is worth the money paid.

This is just my third visit to Riyadh, with company accomadation. Hotel staff is helpful. They could add bit extra for the room service menu. Other than that just a peaceful hotel to spend some time. I loved the gym with useful equipment for a short stay.

3 nights for a business trip. The staff is efficient but the hotel looks dated. Rooms are comfortable and clean, the bed was comfortable. . Free WiFi throughout the hotel. Not a lot to offer in the local area. Not a bad stay

A decent property if you stay at their newer building. The older one seems dated, but the new one is good and the rooms are all renovated. Their breakfast is average, but the staff are great. Overall, a good experience, and would definitely stay there again.

If you need a stay with courteous service in busy Riyadh give this hotel a try. Though the hotel is a bit dated it makes up for it with kind and helpful reception staff Danesh going out of his way to assist guests to get a relaxing stay. Rooms are clean and comfortable.

Located near the computer market of Olaya, this is in a central location of Riyadh. During peak times it can be hard to navigate to and from here due to traffic but that itself is a citywide issue.

Good location for business, located on the central/busy Olaya street. The hotel has a decent gym/lobby/pool area with decent sized rooms. However, some of the areas need an upgrade - especially the shower and breakfast area. The breakfast is OK but the in room dining options are very limited, overly priced and average quality.
