“Good for business travel”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

I have stayed at this hotel twice over the past 6 months and have found it to be quite pleasant. The rooms are large and include a sitting room with kitchen but no utensils so cannot be used but there is a fridge to store bottled water and sodas. I found rooms to be quiet, clean and cool. Good selection for the included buffet breakfast and room service was reasonable.
The gym facilities are quite comprehensive with all the amenities for a good workout.
Free Wi-fi was available and worked well.

While the rooms are large it is very dated and they could do better. There is not a sense of being welcome and the staff do not appear engaged. The gym is good. They have regular functions and if your room is above do not expect much sleep. A major negative is they do not provide any drinking water and do not sell it in the hotel. Location is so so but nothing much within walking distance.

I stayed here for a week on a business trip. The price was good but its an old hotel. I had an apartment type of suite but there was no utensils, crockery, pans etc. So the kitchen area was effectively useless. Free wifi, which is the way it should be. It was clean and the bed was comfortable.
I came back to Jeddah a week later but I found another hotel in a location close to my place of business.

The room is enough for our big family. It is clean. There is a living room that can accommodate a certain number of visitors. We haven't tried the pool but it looks good and well-maintained. You should try their in-house restaurant. It offers tasty and delicious food at reasonable costs. I've tried their seafood meal that includes lobster, i forgot the exact price but it's around 80 Riyals. It was really good! And their Bolognese at around 15 Riyals, you can ask for extra parmesan cheese and sauce. Most of the staff are Filipinos, they are very accommodating and friendly. Overall, we had a comfortable and wonderful experience at this hotel.

The hotel is an nice place to stay in Jeddah. A 4 Star property though doesn't look like from the outside but the rooms are really big and comfortable interiors, food is great esp for a veggie like me. I could get really good sleep wi-fi is superb connectivity in every corner of the room. The staff is really polite and helpful. Over all a place worth every penny.

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.

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.
