Where to stay in Riyadh

The hotels of Olaya Street and King Fahd Road are pretty hard to miss, whether you're looking for accommodations or not. You can find some simpler, standard hotels in this central area, but the emphasis really lies on luxury and showmanship here. Though known for the luxuriousness of its accommodations, Riyadh contains some options fit to please those looking for something a little more modest and budget-friendly. Take a peek at the Al-Batha district for the majority of hostels and guesthouses, located either on the main thoroughfare of the same name, or on side streets just off it.
