Alongside the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton in Riyadh, the Sofitel Al Khobar Corniche sets a standard for excellence in Saudi Arabia. The design is appealing and the rooms have every possible amenity. Many have automated blinds which rise to reveal a gorgeous sea view. Bathrooms are beautifully appointed, and the Sofitel bed is superbly comfortable. I was upgraded upon arrival... More

Stayed at the hotel last weekend, so far the best hotel in the Eastern Province of Saudi Arabia. There are rooms dedicated for sea view and city view. Always choose the sea view--you will have the sunset/sunrise treat from your room, while the city view you will have the solace of the rustic city of Al Khobar afar. Everything is... More

I stayed here on business and this hotel is the bees knees. I can't comment on value for money as I don't know how much it was but it was a real nice stay and the buffet breakfast was excellent.

Given a large room on the 9th floor first night but due to noise from air conditioning in the hall way all night I was changed without any issues the following day.

Excellent location, close to all attractions and local restaurant. Warm welcome from the reception and a very providing staff. Room was great and spacious. Breakfast was also great and had a great variety. Only slight concern was that the lobby was a bit crowded as it was quite small. Otherwise the visit was wonderful.
