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

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

The hotel is great and located in the best part of Jeddah where it is surround of number of famous resturatnts and very near from malls and the famous shopping street Al Tahliah. The food in the hotel is great. Will stay in the hotel again in my next visit to Jeddah

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.

I stayed 4 nights on a business trip there, although this was not my first stay there, it was the first time to face such problem when I lost my sport shoes after they move my belongings and changing my room to a better-located one. When I realized that and asked the reception and the housekeeping next day, they surprised... More
