“It's an honest hotel and I like it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2012

Albilad Hotel isn't Five Star and it doesn't pretend to be. It's an honest Four Star hotel that does it's best for its customers. I had one problem while I was there -- a breakfast waiter who was too keen to remove dishes from the table, even taking away the saucer while I held the coffee cup to my mouth -- but I drew management's attention to this and I'm sure it will be fixed. Breakfast is fine and evening meals are good -- I and a guest ate the barbecue one night and we were really pleased by quality, service and price. Wireless email wasn't working in my room but I'm assured it usually is. There was no safe in my room and I do think a safe is necessary. Nevertheless, it's a good business hotel and I'll be staying there again. Overall, I think it sets out to appeal even more to local people wanting coffee or a meal and that means the food offer may be a little better than the room offer, but the rooms are fine.

When I read through this review I seem to be damning with faint praise -- but what you need to remember is that there aren't any good hotels in Jeddah -- I mean that; there are none -- and this one competes well while being half the price of some I could mention. Stay here. You won't be disappointed.

It was nice to stay at Jeddah Cornish but the hotel room was so old and not updated

Room Tip: No idea. I think all are equal in status

I stayed twice, in September and November 2011 and had a comfortable visit. I chose this hotel because of its location in the north of Jeddah and its green surrounding. Unfortunately the bungalow was not the newest anymore but offered everything I needed for a decent price.
I must state that the food was excellent. The portion in the room service are more than sufficient and the daily changing menues offer different styles, taste delicious, and are a perfect choice for longer stays. The meat and fish was cooked to the point.
There is improvement needed in the attention of the waiting staff and reception. The service was sometimes disappointing.
I might come back for another time...

I had a pleasant stay in this hotel because of the food, they offered a-la-carte menus and huge buffets. The breakfast buffet offered a variety of freshly baked European style bread. The buffets in the evenings were themed with a wide selection of appetizers, fresh Continental and Arabic salads, tasty meats, fresh fish or sea-food, and various side dishes. The main courses were readily prepared by the friendly chefs behind the cooking stations at the buffet which assisted choosing specialities and cooked to my likings.
In the contrary to the waiters. Sometimes one had to wait too long because the waiters were not around, didn't listen to the orders properly or had an unprofessional attitude.
When it comes to the rooms the hotel is average. The rooms were smelly, worn out, and small. The staff at the reception, well, were sometimes short-spoken and disorganized.
Over all, my stay was comfortable with the food making the difference.

ive always like this hotel, been there several times. the food is decent, service is ok the people at the desk can be a little dense if you know what i mean but otherwise polite n whatnot. if you r staying a bunch of friends in a mixed (unmarried) group you can always rent the bungalow outside, no one really checks up on you or anything so if you want to hang out in each others' rooms its cool. nice location and the BEST part is they have a great private beach. it's never been crowded, good for diving n snorkeling, just beautiful clean beach with a food shop n scuba/snorkel shop etc. its a 30m drive from hotel everyday 2x a day going and coming. really great.

Room Tip: stay in the bungalows
