“Very comfortable good restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

As my business travels seldom take me to Saudi Arabia I was a little nervous regarding the accommodation the company had booked for me. However in this case I needn’t have been so concerned. Whilst it would have been useful to sample some of the larger international hotels in Jeddah to compare I feel the Trident was more than acceptable for my 4 night stay.

The Trident restaurant offers a wide selection of international foods and the staff are very attentive throughout the hotel.

The rooms are reasonably large and clean with a widescreen TV showing some international channels.

The only draw backs I found where those based on cultural differences which clearly the hotel can do little about – such as the dry state issue and the poor water quality for bathing etc. I would suggest you buy some bottled water from outside other wise you will have to pay restaurant prices

Given the possible range of hotels I could have found myself in I was quite happy and I would happily stay at the trident again.

Room Tip: i think some rooms include complimentary internet access ask for this in negotiations

The only Star quality hotel in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia that has an Indian management, thereby, the management has given a truly Indian feel to the hotel and the overall staying experience. The best thing about the hotel is the food. Great Indian food! The location of the hotel, although is in the heart of the city and close to lots of shopping, could be better. The approach is not that great, but the hotel itself is very well maintained and boasts very good food and good rooms to stay in. It is one of the more reasonably priced hotels in Jeddah. Overall verdict - a good option to stay at with great food choices!

On our trip, driving from Cape Town to London, instead of being able to drive through Saudi as planned, we were told on arrival, that right hand steering vehicles are not alowed on roads. Saudi has been the biggest problem of our whole trip and an expensive one as we have been forced to send the car by carrier onto the Jordan border.
We booked into the Trident and have had no problems with the hotel. Staff friendly, mainly from Parkistan & India. Rooms very nice. Free wi-fi.

This is a hotel in the centre of Jeddah but could definitely be better what with the travellers to the Holy Places and Airlines staff frequenting the hotel. Entrance is not good as the Reception Lobby is on the first floor and only a porter may or may not greet you at the entrance. Rooms were roomy and good. Food was also good. However, charges could have been reduced by a few dollars.

Memorable Stay, Hotel is located on Mina Road, near the main highway leading directly to Holy Makkah and has close proximity to the busy shopping malls of the Balad area, the Industrial Zone and the Islamic Port of Jeddah.

Unless the Hotel is renovated and new services added this Hotel is sure to lose many of its customers. The place looks worn out and aged. Carpets are dirty and service is tardy. More like a budget hotel than a graded one!!!
