“big room, but old”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

as a business traveller, i just picked hotel the closest one to my office. this is the closest one, but i think this is not the best value.
with 550 riyals, you got very big hotel room. old interiors, with very cold ac, which i dont know where to adjust it. no coffe, tea, or even water as complomentary. the breakfast also very little choiche you can get. if you looking for food outside hotel, its quite hard to find within walking distance. i think its better forme to puck another hotel on the next visit.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

Stayed here for just over a week on a business trip. As I stayed here about five years ago and had a pretty bad experience then, I was therefore reluctant when I heard we had to come back.

The Hotel is it is now is however not completely bad for an economy hotel, with comfortable apartment type of room/lounge and even a small kitchen (with nothing in it - also no kettle for tea). At least a fridge is available. Good air-conditioning, although noisy. The main bedroom had twin beds, a flat screen TV with some movie channels and CNN for English news, lots of built-in cupboards and an electronic safe.

The free wireless internet was of poor standard the whole week, most of the time exceedingly slow and often breaking off completely. You have to log-in many times in a day to restore the service. One evening it did not work at all and often I couldn't send/receive any emails larger than only a few Kilobytes, which was a big pain. A complaint to the front desk yielded nothing more than "sorry about that". I guess they have no answers any more!

The restaurant is below average and especially breakfast was disappointing (horrible burnt-tasting coffee!). Room service was friendly and reasonably priced.

The gym at least was great - well equipped and with everything working. It is spacious and inviting with a friendly and involved manager with friendly young men assisting. Well done! Nice swimming pool for a quick relaxation after work or gym.

So, loved the gym, but will probably not use this hotel again because of the ridiculously bad internet service.

Room Tip: Inner rooms facing the swimming pool have less noise.

I was the only woman in our business delegation. The staff were at all times courteous, friendly and helpful. The hotel was clean and comfortable. The rooms we had were all suites - some with kitchen areas. There were no coffee and tea making facilities but room service was quick and efficient, The restaurant was efficient and the quality of food was good. Breakfast was varied and there were good choices at dinner - buffet and a la carte. Overall the hotel gives good value and high quality. There were lots of local weddings to observe!

Stayed 1 night at this hotel - its huge and the rooms are more like suites, with a sitting area, small kitchen area and seperate bedroom.

No Tea/Coffee or Water in the room, No free internet or desk just a coffee table and SR10 per hour fee to use a wireless service.

Hotel staff are generally not interested - apart from one person on reception.

Breakfast - DO NOT BOTHER =- Coffee is just instant in a coffee maker pot - yuk!

Will not stay here again.

Room Tip: A different hotel.
