Hotels in Jeddah

Saudi Arabia’s second (and most liberal) city, Jeddah, has been a trade crossroads for centuries. Cosmopolitan and commercial, Jeddah is packed with great shopping, world class restaurants, and the largest waterfront Corniche in the whole Kingdom.

Jeddah hosts more than its fair share of travellers, and as a result has hotels to suit all types of visitors. Whether you’re planning on relaxing by the beach in one of the large resorts, visiting clients in the commercial centre, or stopping over for the night before a pilgrimage to Mecca, there are some great accommodation options to choose from.

Sprawling along the Red Sea coast, Jeddah is a huge city with hotels peppered throughout. It’s good to have an idea of what you want from your holiday. If you’re interested in sightseeing, look for hotels near Al-Balad: Jeddah’s old town. This is where you’ll find the coral buildings which Jeddah is famous for, and you can easily spend an afternoon getting lost in the labyrinthine streets and souks.

If you’re more interested in beach life, stick to hotels around the Corniche. There are plenty of white sand beaches lined with palm trees to relax on, as well as waterfront cafes and restaurants. Resorts towards the north of the Corniche are often trendy and exclusive. This part of town is widely considered to be more hedonistic, but do bear in mind that this is Saudi Arabia and not Ibiza.

Wherever you stay in Jeddah, you should be able to find yourself around the city fairly easily. Some high end hotels provide shuttle transfers for guests, taking them to the main shopping and sightseeing areas, although private taxis are generally considered to be quite reasonably priced. Always agree the fare with the driver before you get in.
