“A very likeable place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2014

Though Khobar has many good hotels, I felt that this stay was a great value for money. Excellent service , clean rooms , a very cosy hotel, good restaurant and a very convinient location....on the whole a very satisfying experience

The property is beautiful and the rooms are well appointed. The restaurant was great and the serviced was excellent. The lobby was large and a comfortable place to hold informal meetings. There was a gentleman serving Arabic coffee and dates who was charming and generous! I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed for 6 nights here last month while on a Business trip to the Kingdom. Check in was a bit slow, took about 15 minutes. The hotel is spread across a large area, so I had my room in one corner while my friends were in another. The room was clean, with a tiny balcony, which is more ornamental than useful.. Room service was slow, and frequently missed out parts of the order. The free WiFi was excruciatingly slow at times, and sometimes, not working at all. When I enquired with the reception, I was told that the hotel was full and all the guests were accessing wifi! I thought the wifi was there for the guests to access!!! The selection of TV channels was poor, like in most Saudi hotels. The breakfast spread is quite good, and the food is tasty. The hotel location was very convenient, and for the price we paid, it was good value for the money, but I am not sure if I will stay here again... there are now newer hotels coming up in Khobar, and I will be tempted to try out one of them the next time I am here....
PS: Don't miss the Arabic coffee (gawa) which is served in the lobby- awesome!

i checked in for three nights on a business trip to Jubail and Khobar, flying in via Dammam airport; This wasnt my first trip to Saudi or this hotel. My second experience was not as pleasant or welcoming as my first; The personnel manning the food section need to learn its human to simply say hello and ask if someone will have a glass of water or juice; when this basic human interaction doesnt exist in a hotel where people come in for a stay the experience is somewhat stunted - and inhuman; It costs nothing for demonstrating basic human courtesy to visiting guests.

Room Tip: choose rooms near the reception, and avoid the rooms at the fare end of the corridor; i stayed in ro...

Everything was perfect. When my friend and I arrived in this hotel, we were greeted with wide smiles from the receptionist and check-in only took for 5 mins. When we got our room, it was perfect. The beds were smooth, the carpet, the design, and everything were just perfect but when I got to the bathroom, I found some hair strands on the tub but it's OK.When I went out for lunch in A La Carte, the staff was amazing. He greeted us with a smile and amicably talked to us and took our order even though he needs to go back and forth to ask the Chef since we ordered the Main Dish and Seafood of the Day. But when I went out to take some dip on their pool, I was shocked coz I was thinking they have one. I am not sure if that was a pool or just a fountain but still the view compensated for lacking of swimming facilities.
So, to sun it up. My whole weekend stay in this hotel was amazing and almost perfect. I would definitely recommend it to my friends.

Airport pick up and check in were very smooth and swift, much appreciated due to the late check in and I needed to eat something and hit the bed. The room itself is small, but the bed is very comfortable and the TV channels are well varied.

Room service was quick but had some hair in my salad, and the pizza could be much better than the way I had it,

Breakfast went ok, seemed so rich, but I tried only the sliced fruits and the coffee corner for a fresh start of the day.

Nothing more to eat during my stay, as I became kind of afraid to eat anything.

The furniture in the room is of good quality, but there were some spots and glitter on the corner chair that comes very hard. There was a very long hair in the bathroom. Other than that, everything else in the room was very good.

The hotel price is very competitive and is suitable for long stays, but mine was only for one night.
