The hotel location is amazing a walking distance from Tahlia street and a road crossing from faisaliah mall and tower Sadly the rooms and service are not worth the rates Staff lack hospitality training Rooms are a tad outdated Housekeeping seems to require you asking for your room to be cleaned though this is not announced on check in Finding parking is impossible

I have been in Boudl Olaya for nearly a month and it felt like I was at home. The rooms are clean, spacious depending on your option, and cozy. But the star of Boudl Olaya are the service staff, they are what made Boudl Special. Ahmad is very hospitable and helpful, my mother had an injury and he was quick to apply first aid and assure us. Faisal is a very cooperative person, he goes the extra mile in serving customers with hospitality. Lolou is a respectful person that greeted us and helped us and was very cooperative in helping us in different topics. Mona had very warm and welcome interactions with my mother and always greeted her with friendliness, she was respectful and went the extra mile. Monawar always greets guests with a smile, he is very happy to serve guests in any way he can and the extra mile. He smiles and provides guests with coffee. Overall, everyone there is friendly and take part in making Boudl Olaya feel more like a home rather than a hotel.
