Le Meridien Al Khobar is one of the oldest hotels in the Easter providence in Saudi Arabia. Strategically located at the corniche road of Al Khobar where all the best and most popular food chains are located. It’s also the main attraction for those who would enjoy a stroll at the evening time when the weather is nice and breezy. I have visited this hotel in 2008 and forgot to review it. Through file browsing, I’ve just found the pictures for it! please note that even though that these pictures were taken in 2008, I’ve visited the place recently in July to see a friend and the same set of furniture is still in usage, so there’s no updates in case of raising doubt about the accuracy of this review.
Le Meridien is surrounded by a huge concrete wall and maximum security due to the regular threat of terrorist attacks on its foreign guests. It does block the lovely old architecture of this building. Unfortunately, at the lobby floor there’s a limited number of places that you could chill at. I’ve seen so far only one coffee shop that was apparent and providing most of the services. I visited Le Meridien for a major GCC meeting and the conference hall was very huge and remarkable. Due to prior arrangements, our stay was paid-for and we surly have received great attention. I would just like to note that the furniture is very regular and there’s nothing remarkable to wow about. It’s strictly a business traveler’s spot in Al Khobar area, but it’s prices are almost stable along the year and till now I have not seen any competitive offers, since they are usually satisfied with the level of patronage from the foreign/western guests.
If you are looking for something of 5-stars grade of lodging in Al Khobar area, then I would generally recommend this hotel instantly for its premium location and good services.
