It was a great experience with nice room. Part of haram view from my window was fabulous. Will definitely come back again with Thanks. Note: Please revise for rate room because past year was cheaper than 2024 it was a double the amount that I paid.

It’s my second stay at this hotel and our experience last time was excellent. This time however we had a few issues. The checkin process was excellent as were the rooms and room service. We did however have 2 issues. Firstly we paid for Half Board and were staying over on last days of Ramadhan. We returned after Isha prayers on the 29th night, at around 11pm to the hotel for iftaar but were told by the 2 ladies at the desk that iftaar was only available between 7pm and 9pm. They said the buffet restaurant was open but we could only eat if we paid 150 riyals per head! We did not eat at the hotel that night. Secondly I went to the Sofitel car booking service to arrange an airport transfer for when we checked out. I was told roads would be closed and it was implied that only hotel taxis would have permits to exit the area. I was told for a small car (4 passages, 2 luggage) it would be 400 Riyals. I later realised no roads were closed and I had been ripped off as a fair price would be between 100 and 200 riyals for this journey. I am very disappointed a brand like Sofitel would use an occasion like this to rip off customers.

Dear Mulla, Your satisfaction is our top priority and we're so delighted that you enjoyed our room service, check-in process, and room. regarding the reservation and transportations, we are sorry for any inconvenience caused and would like to assure you that we have taken immediate action to rectify the issue. We hope you give us the opportunity to provide you with better service in the future.
