This is a decent hotel for Riyadh. It's downtown yet not too far from the airport. Rooms are clean and spacious. The wifi is free and very fast. There is a gym and an outdoor pool, though it's above a busy road. It's a mid range hotel with a single cafe restaurant. One downside is the restaurant serves breakfast and...

It is also very near to Tahlia street, or whatever they call it, where most of the restaurants are. They have 2 buildings they call them the old...

Rooms are big and clean, however the building is old and has an unattractive reception area. Expensive compared to rates of the other holiday inn in the opposite side of the street. The breakfast and light dinner served in the executive lounge in the 5th floor is not rich but convenient for those who are busy and easy about eating....

The staff was fantastic and was very responsive to any requests. As a Platinum member of the Priority Club, they even gave me a complimentary upgrade to a suite room. It was great! The food at the hotel restaurant was delicious. What more is there to ask for?

The location of the hotel is good in the center. Car parking is available and free. Bed and pillows are comfortable. But: It is old, with overused furniture. Smoking room were given to me without asking by the reception staff. The restaurant is traditional.
