I have been here three times for business and no effort is done to improve this lib sense style hotel. Honestly, you should go elsewhere because of the old style, poor clean rooms, and under average restaurant. It's advantage are nice people of central location. And it's all... The AC is noisy land out of age.

The price and location are the two selling points for this place. Situated close to Tahlia street it is in a good location, but the rooms are disappointing. Mine smelt of smoke, the curtains were dirty, AC was noisy and hard to adjust the fan speed, bathroom was old and tired, and there was no kettle in the room. I... More

It's a excellent choice, if you are going to Jeddah for work. Nice staff, great pool and good gym right across the street, free for hotel guest. Wonderful location, with supermarket and restaurants nearby and you cannot miss Sands Hotel's chicken shoarma, the best in town.

I don't want to waste my time and yours by repeating everything that has already been said. Yes, it's old, but it's well kept. The metallic elevators are fine by the way. You are not paying for elevators. The room decor and wood paneling is a bit of a time warp once you step in it, but the place is... More

3 Star Hotel, positioned in a lively central area. 3 floors but spread horizontally . Spent 3 nights there on B/B basis. A very old hotel but kept in a reasonably good clean condition. Still using the old door keys- old shabby small elevators.. Decorated with old wooden panels and a lots of wall mounted mirrors... Owned and run by... More

I just checked out from the hotel, has a great location, most the nice restaurant and shopping centers are near by. You can walk though. The room service is like a 5 stars hotel. Good job Sands hotel; the great value on the top of all these. Don't hesitate to stay over there, believe me you won't regret if you... More

In few words, this hotel is not meant for tourists but for those who knew Jeddah already. Window view on other nasty roof but there's a TV. The hygiene is average ,the value is good. Also lots of wooden surfaces which I didn't like (as a matter of fact that's why its 3* hotel), finally there's a free WiFi but... More

Great hotel with excellent service and great value. Best garlic chicken sandwich in Jeddah, hands down. The hotel has very friendly staff, clean rooms and an ideal atmosphere for a family getaway. Definitely recommended while visiting Jeddah.
