“World Class Service yet Affordable”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

If you need world class service yet affordable price to stay in a world class hotel, this place is the best for those travelers out there! My husband and I had a wonderful stay here because from the moment we made our booking up to the last minute of our stay there, we really had a wonderful time..The office manager upgraded our booking to a business suite and gave us an excellent service from the courteous staff and crew of the hotel. This is also an ideal place to stay because it is very near to the park, restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping malls..Even celebrating special occasions like weddings and birthday parties can be best held here..Surely, it will become very memorable..We definitely go back here again soon.

I recently stayed in their Panorama Suites which is one of their best rooms! I can say that not only was staying in the room one of the best experience but their service was the best that I have had! Their resto Le Jasmine was overwhelming with food and I got to ask one of their waiters about their Chef who turned out to be a Filipino! I am not surprised as I've known Filipinos to be one of the best cooks in the world. Also I am commending a certain Kiyas who was very very helpful and very attentive to my family's needs. Although there was not much for my children, I understand that this is more of a business hotel. However, I hope that they consider putting some form of recreation for the kids. I also love their health spa! Another Filipino worker who was very thorough and patient. Overall the hotel was a good experience! I sure would like to come back again!

Room Tip: The Panorama suite has the best view of the city among the other rooms :)

The staff were amazingly friendly and helpful. The hotel has everything you could possibly need and caters for all ages, families and couples. Will definitely stay again. The hotel vicinity is excellent and nearest to all shopping centers which is good to families with children, there is also park beside that soothes calmness whenever you occupy high floor rooms. For our family who use to travel regularly this hotel is indeed a perfect place to stay..

Room Tip: rooms on high floors..

Ramada Al Khobar is the best-value hotel I have stayed in, in the KSA. It is relatively new; rooms are spacious, clean and very well-maintained. Complimentary wifi internet is available anywhere in the hotel, including inside the rooms.

The daily rate is very reasonable, hence, the title of this review, given the quality of the stay. Buffet breakfast, though, is so-so but good enough.

I always stay in this hotel whenever I am in Al Khobar.

This has been the most disgusting stay in any hotel in my life.The staff is arrogant, rude, and can scream at guests.
They asked me to sign a contract for SAR325 per night, but they have not shared the signed copy of the contract in 3 weeks.
I requested for a copy of all the vouchers for extras that were signed by me, the duty manager simply refused to share the same.
I requested to be connected to the GM, and duty manager promises me that he would ensure that the GM never ever speaks to me.
I requested for a check out, and duty manager says that I need to pay at the rate of SAR 400, but he is not able to print the bill for the same amount.
Most disgusting staff at the front office. Never keep their word. Don't respond to e-mails.

Room Tip: Please do not visit this hotel. It can become a nightmare for you.
