Based on other reviews and the fact that this hotel is located in a small town in middle-of-nowhere KSA, I was somewhat nervous about staying here, but it ended up being just fine. Like many hotels in this part of the world the rooms were not amazing, but they were functional and clean. The bathroom and shower were very small, but that was not a big deal. We had a "king" room (i.e. two twin beds pushed together) and the beds were decently comfortable. The AC could have been cooler, but we were still able to sleep just fine. Each room has a little table and chairs outside of it so you can sit there and overlook the gardens area in the middle. I thought that was a nice touch. We also heard there was a swimming pool, but I am not sure it was open to women. The best thing about our stay here was the food at the restaurant. Our meals were included in the price of the Madain Saleh tour we had booked, so I can't speak to the prices, but we were served very tasty food with large portions. Breakfast and dinner were buffet style, and lunch (the best meal in my opinion) was a multiple course affair with lovely salads, soups, meat, and desserts. It really hit the spot after trekking around Madain Saleh and the other sites! The staff was helpful and friendly; we were allowed a late checkout and could leave our bags in our rooms until our van left at 3 p.m. This is definitely the place to stay if you are visiting this area.
