“Good hotel in crowded area”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

I have stayed in the 10th floor on January 15-16, 2013. The room was big as well as the bathroom but need renovation. The room had a big window with swimming pool view, and it was very clean; but a little bit smelly. There was a problem with elevators, sometime one need to wait few minutes to get an elevator as there was a workshop. The staffs were very friendly and helpful with some exceptions. The internet is free. The area of the hotel is very crowded.

Room Tip: some higher floor rooms have good view

Checked in late and given a damp ridden room with bare electrical cables everywhere. As it was late, I tried to make do, only to feel extremely ill the next day. There was mould on the ceiling and air conditioning unit. I checked out at the first opportunity.

i stayed in the 7th floor in this hotel last Nov. 20, 2012.
big room with big bathroom.
i love this hotel, very clean public area and restaurant is very cozy.
i just wish that the sport club and the pool would be open to females also.
it would be very relaxing if we could swim after roaming around balad area.

The hotel is quite old and needs to be refurbished but the staff there really made the difference
in my stay, They were very helpful in guiding me and leading delivering whatever i needed and they made my stay really remarkable. It is very good for people who have work in the area and has free internet that is very helpful and fast. The food is nice and i enjoyed my BF. Have been in many hotels before with much better physical condition but here the staff made a difference.

This hotel really needs to be renovated. It is a very old property and the rooms have a bad smell. Dont get tricked by the exteriors and the lobby areas as they have been renovated but the rooms have not been renovated still. I would not recommend this property to anyone. You have a lot of other options in Jeddah.

Room Tip: Dont get fooled by the lobby area.
