Jeddah Hilton Hotel (Jeddah, Saudi Arabia KSA)

4 Case Rating


Location

Located about 20 minutes drive from Jeddah International airport and about 35-40 minutes from downtown area’s such as Balad. In immediate vicinity is the Corniche rd which has a walk way along the coast, about 10 minutes walk is a mini mall with many fast food outlets such as Mcdonalds, Baskin Robbins, Starbucks and Sushi places.

Room

Room was on executive floor and was of decent size. The room included two chairs and a sofa with a glass table – fairly comfortable and adequate for watching TV. The bed was very comfortable- large king size and slept well. Bed size tables both came with nice lamps and a adequate alarm clock. The room also had a large desk with LAN connection and and various international plug sockets. It was of adequate size for working on a laptop and also included a large mirror in front. The TV was also located on this tableincluded around 40 channels mainly regional to KSA but BBC, SKY & CNN was available. There was also a mini bar in which had fairly decent selection of soft drinks & snacks. A large wardrobe, ironing board and safe was also in the room. The bathroom was very spacious and included a fine selection of amenities all branded by Peter Werth- nice body lotion, shampoo and shower gel. There was a large bathroom all finished in marble offering a bidet, bath and shower in which included a lower tap to clean feet. The room also includes a balcony which offered a nice view of the Red sea & had two seats and a table. A/C is controllable by touch screen and works very well. One noticeable missing item was a kettle to make hot drinks.

Facilities

The hotel has multiple facilities – firstly WIFI is unfortunately chargeable and quite expensive but does work fast. This was as of in 2014
For the guests on the executive floors, the club lounge on the top floor is a comfortable cosy room with some dining tables, sofas and armchairs offering an excellent view of the Red Sea. I choose to have breakfast in there but the selection was somewhat limited. Hot foods include turkey bacon, hash browns and cook-to-order eggs. There is plenty of breads, with some Arabic foods but overall limited selection. However there are another 2-3 other restaurants to use in the hotel, one is themed as an American Diner and looks very cool- but did not get a chance to try it as they seemed to close early. There is a coffee shop in the lobby lounge area where many flavours of ice cream are served.
For leisure facilities there is two pools, one outside- large but very plain area just marble floors and minimal supply of sun beds. There is though a nice indoor pool great for doing lengths, also a modern gym, a games room with various pool tables and even a 4 lane proper bowling alley- fun for families. The hotel also offers a Mosque, various shops for jewellery, Arabic arts, clothes and convenience store for snacks. There is a budget car desk in which you can hire a car (with a driver) for 125R per hour rate. In addition though Hilton have their own cars (nice BMW’s to take you to the airport). The hotel has a very large conference centre in an adding building.
One of the impressive features of this hotel is the lobby area – open plan showing the interior of floors with glass elevators and palm trees inside. One of the most interesting lobbies of all the hotels I have stayed at.

Staff

Staff in general are all very nice and friendly from front desk, concierge to housekeeping- they acknowledge you and are very respectful.However check-in though took a while, there is not enough desk staff for amount of rooms at this hotel and no line system with some guests pushing in which was frustrating when trying to check-out. There is a dedicated Hilton Honours desk but no-one was ever there.
Overall this is decent upmarket Hilton Hotel although not in town it is a good position from the airport and nice place to walk about around the Red sea, somewhat quiet although some powerful sports cars can be heard at night along the main room. The decor is very impressive – its a true 5 star of facilities of hotel and very safe to stay (big security presence to enter). The area is good enough as your away from the full-on traffic and madness of the downtown area but with nice breeze of the red sea. It is also an exceptionally clean hotel in all areas. I would stay here again. It gets 4/5 because the breakfast was weak, the room had no tea and coffee facilities and internet is chargeable at quite a high rate.
