“Alternative to Western Hotel Chain”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

I selected this hotel primarily due to (relatively) closeness to the Jeddah airport (15 minute cab ride). This can be very important as Jeddah traffic can be unpredictable, especially when it rains. A 30 minute cab ride to the airport can turn into 3 hours! (Be careful when choosing cabs as there are many unlicensed drivers at the airport baggage area that charge 3X normal cab fare.)

The room/apartment consists of a large sitting area, a nice kitchen with stove, refrigerator, microwave (pots, pans & dishes ), and a large bed room with shower/toilet.

There are several stores close by for food, and larger, general shopping is within walking distance

All rooms were clean, ac worked well and the water heater kept up with shower demand.

That being said, I am satisfied with the accommodations and will probably book it again.

I booked the one bed room apartment for me and my wife for one night. The price was reasnoble, considering that the apartment was very large with one very large bedroom and a reasnoble living room and kitchen. The apartment was reasnobly clean. Also breakfast and Internet were complimentary. I did not use the complimentary breackfast so i cannot comment.
I would have liked that the window ACs were open uppon our arrival instead of waiting the 45minutes we needed to wait for the temprature in our room to become cool enough to sleep.
The checkin was not so smooth. It was late at night (12am) and after a 7 hour flight, I waited for about 5 minutes for the receptionist to stop filing and give me attention. He also needed to photo copy our passports and then found the photocopier/ scanner needed fixing, then he asked me for a two nights worth of security deposit in cash (despite securing the reservation with a credit card), which he did not give me a reciept for since the printer was not working but told me that the amount was regestered in the computer. He called me in my room an hour later (1am) to ask me how much deposit I gave him! he insisted that i gave him lower than my claim!! Fortunatly an understanding Manager resolved the issue next morning. The bed and pillows were excellent. However, the noise from the street was very clear in our bedroom, apparently very poor noise insulation.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the main street are quiter. Ask for your ACs to be turned on especially in the hot...

This is a large apartment that is quite comfortable. The living area has a nice little chandelier with some nice stuffed chairs and sofa. The kitchen is equipped with enough to get by with an ok sized refrigerator. Down a small hallway the bathroom with a sink outside the bath/shower and toilet. Just further down in the spacious bedroom that is carpeted. The bed was really comfortable. The downsides to Boudl Hera is that Hera street is right outside and noisy with plenty of locals constantly honking their car horns at all times. Parking sometimes gets full and is difficult to get out of if you don't back into a spot. The boat and waves statues with oversized fruit across the street were nice to look at. There is a very small swimming pool in the parking lot behind the hotel. There are tons of places to eat outside Boudl.
