Movenpick Hotel Jeddah
Ranked #8 of 169 Hotels in Jeddah
Reviewed October 28, 2011

As residents of Jeddah, we don't usually go out of our way to visit hotels, let alone staying overnight. So I guess if there is exceptions to this rule, anniversaries would be on the top of that list. I was looking up Jeddah's reputable hotels, and frankly price was the main factor. Jeddah's top tier hotels are nutritiously expensive, especially in these days which coincide the pilgrimage season. I picked up Mövenpick Hotel because of its central location and recognizable name but above all because it was the most reasonably priced in the bunch. Which not saying much because it was not cheap by any stretch (810SR/$216 a night).

The hotel itself is on one of Jeddah's main arteries; Al Madinah Rd, which can be makes central for stay in the town, but also can be a pain in the butt in rush hours. Its entrance is not much, tucked in a very hectic court yard which features a group of travel agencies, that is why it is easy to miss. But once you cross the sliding doors of the entrance, It is a whole different story. The lobby is wide and inviting, and because its middle section is open all the way to the 5th and top floor, the daylight would make the lobby a pleasant place to hang out. There is a restaurant that serves breakfast in the morning, and also a 24 hours cafe as well. There is also an Asian restaurant, and it is also located in the ground floor. An outdoor pool is outside the restaurant, which gives breakfast a great view if you happen to choose a tables close to it. That and the variety of food that they serve in breakfast, which makes the place perfect not only for tourists, but also for business travelers. The receptionists, bellboys, and service staff are very capable, nice, and professional. They ensures a smooth and fast check-in and check-out processes.

Our room was in the fifth floor, which is dedicated for non-smokers. Our room was 527, a room of modest size, but it features everything a guest would need. The bed was wide and very comfortable, and the closets are of a good size, the room was very clean, and nicely decorated. There is a flatTV with many channels, but we did not have time to check them out. The room has a minibar that was loaded with all kind of overpriced soft drinks and snacks. But the room also has a kittle and a complementary coffee, tea, and bottled water. The bathroom is small, but it has everything you need; a full range of toiletries, robes, enough towels, hair-dryer, a tub, and a very powerful shower. Everything to ensure a comfortable stay, and with the 24 room service, you could even stay in your room and not having to leave at all.

Bottom line, the hotel may not have the Red sea romantic view of Jeddah's top hotels like Corniche Rosewood, Hilton, Park Hyatt, and Intercontinental, but it almost match them in the quality of services and warm welcome, with room rates that are substantially cheaper, and that is a no small feat.

First of all don't be fooled by the apparently new exterior - this hotel seems to be an old one which evidently has been re-branded Movenpick. I was under the impression that Movenpick hotels were of 4 star standard but the Saudi Supreme Commission for Tourism rating for this property is 3 star which is about accurate. Rooms really need to be updated particularly the bathrooms. Given the price I was expecting higher standards. Not really in the same league as other Jeddah hotels such as the Rosewood Corniche. Having said this, service was good and I was impressed by the friendly and efficient reception.

Room Tip: I had a room which faced onto the internal lobby - very dark and dismal. Ask for an outside facing r...

I got a junior suite for a single night in this hotel, al all ate going well , quick and easy check-in, room is good size and super clean. Not far from the shopping malls (car is needed) this review is written through the free wi-fi of the hotel. Parking is available and free.

I stayed at the Movenpick in Jeddah while traveling for work. I stayed here two weeks in total. The hotel is very clean and has an upscale feel to it. The reception staff is incredibly nice and accommodating.

The rooms are tastefully decorated and the bed is super comfortable. Surprised there is no coffee maker in the room though. I stayed during Ramadan and the staff advised me of options to eat in case I wasn't fasting. The food is decent, but not quite exceptional.

Internet is complimentary and there is a gym and a steam room, sauna. Unfortunately there is no massage spa in the hotel which I could have used after my long hours of work.

I've stayed at the Marriott in Jeddah as well, which is also nice, but i think the Movenpick has the advantage. All in all a great hotel that is safe, secure and friendly. I'll stay here again.

I have stayed here twice in my stay in Jeddah.

Conveniently located on Madinah Road, you can get to Balad or the airport very quickly. (15 to 20 minutes) There isn't much to eat or shop around here. The nearest area to shop is opposite the hotel. Just across the road a shopping area. You can find also Al-Baik here. Al-Baik is the fried chicken place you must try while in Jeddah. Anywhere else, you'll have to take a cab there.

In my most recent visit, internet access was complimentary. This was a nice surprise. The broadband service was quick.

The rooms are dated but still comfortable nonetheless. I wasn't impressed with the spread of the breakfast but a good nespresso did make me feel a lot better.

I would definitely stay here again when I visit Jeddah.

Not your average rating, but it shows how part of the hotel is!
During the heavy flooding of January we were unable to reach our own hotel.
As water flowed through the streets, we decided to have dinner in the Moevenpick an see if we could book a room.
Understandably every room was booked so we were offered sofa's in the hotel. On various locations around 50 ""guests"were bunked down.
The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful, offering water and sandwiches.
So, not being guests, we were very happy with the Moevenpick Jeddah!!!
