-I was given a smoking room although I requested a non smoking so I think this affected my whole evaluation as I could smell bad odour in everything around me from towels- sheets- to furniture! - The Gym was great - Break fast not bad but Salmon did not smell too fresh - Price OK as I was on corporate...

Having read the reviews before travelling I was very nervous about booking here. However my fears were unfounded. Whilst perhaps not the most plush of places the Sofitel was clean, friendly with adequate food and I certainly would go back. In the end it may not be in the top bracket but then the prices are not either. The food... More

I stayed in this hotel for two days last week. First thing I would say is that do not let the photos on the website misguide you. The hotel is a two to three star at best with a very old look and smell. I was checked-in pretty fast but I had to go to a separate desk for payment,... More

The Sofitel Al Hamra in Jeddah is rated as 5-star but is only 3 star or less. The wifi in the hotel is terrible. You pay 25 SAR for a 24 hour block but most times I was unable to use it although my laptop indicated that I had a good connection. Once I had to go down to the... More

I lived in this hotel for two times, each 29 days, on business (obviously..I'm American). No, its not a J.W.Marriott, but, it has all that any other 3-star property anywhere would have. The in-house rest. is good, which is REALLY good, considering that I never left the property after 7PM. Service is 'Saudi-typical', which is to say, well, not-exactly wonderful.

From arrival to departure this property did not live up to the Sofitel name or in some cases not even a basic hotel. On arrival you are asked to pay for your entire stay in advance at the cashier before check in, guessing on what you might spend on incidentals. I was told that this was due to a problem... More

I stayed here for 6 nights & was impressed with the service I got. The staff were very helpful & friendly. They sent a driver to the hotel to collect me which was nice & it was included in price of my room rate. I had one of the deluxe rooms. It was lovely, the best bed I have ever... More

This is the worst hotel that I have ever stayed in, rated 5 stars and it should not exceed 3, first Jiddah is a very hot city the AC units just don't cool the air enough and if you suffer from allergy like me don't go to this hotel, the rooms are very small even in the royal suite, all... More

Great location and staff. The mattresses are getting on in years and need to be changed, but other than that a great experience.

I loved this hotel, located on Palestine Street, near Tahlia Street, these two streets are the best in Jeddah. Rooms: big rooms in both towers. rooms are very clean with marple baths. Staff: very friendly. Parking: free.
