Some of the reviews for this hotel are not very good. I wouldn't say it's a terrible hotel but for the money it's ok.It is nearly half the price of other hotels nearby and the standard in other hotels is not massively better.
The rooms are pretty standard with a bath / shower. There is a mini bar but no tea or coffee making facilities. The prices were better than some I have seen but I just went over to the supermarket opposite and stocked up on cold drinks and chocolate and kept them in the refrigerator.
The beds are quite hard but I don't mind that so I had some good nights here. Thank ggoodness for the OSN channels - saw some good movies while I was staying here.
There isn't much to do around the hotel. You are a good 20-25 minutes walk from the Kingdom Tower. You can get a taxi there for about 10-15 riyals (about £2-3) which is better.
There is an Indian restaurant within a few minutes walk and KFC & a burger place just round the corner.
Breakfast is pretty ordinary with tinned fruit, some limited hot food and pastries. I asked one day for a fried egg and ended up with something resembled road kill!
I didn't eat in the restaurant for dinner so I cant comment on that.
The staff are very friendly and helpful, some of them cant speak Englsh but they will get someone who can to speak to you very quickly.
You need to put your make up my room card on the outside of your door to ensure it is serviced.
Overall, for what you get here, the price is very good value and for a short stay, it is ideal
