TripAdvisor rating 4.5/5

joeluft Friends getaway - 26/02/2020 TripAdvisor review

I must say I've been pretty flattered by the call received from the Guest management (Fatima?), the day I was leaving to Dammam. The stay itself was not memorable. 2 nights, was upgraded to a sea view room, but being Accor Platinum frankly speaking I was expecting more. Beds very comfortable, room was nicely featured, but nothing exceptional. Large bathroom, lots of amenities, first class products. But.... the hotel seemed uncrowded at all,almost abandoned. The lounge was definitely not au paire of other lounges, even of Novotels around the world (to mention a few, Singapore and Hong Kong). So far so good. I knew what I was paying, but the outcome was not that of a deluxe hotel. Room rate was overpriced, Sofitel Dubai Downtown, a real deluxe property, was definitely cheaper . You are in Al Khobar, on the sea but not on a beach, far from everything. Other hotels nearby came much cheaper. If it was not for the status, I wouldn't have stayed there and I will hit stay there anymore. People was very friendly, staff was very nice, but it was double its actual value.

Dear Joe G, Thank you very much for having taken the time to write your feedback on TripAdvisor. We are glad that you had a wonderful time at Sofitel Al Khobar the Corniche. I will share your comments with the entire team. I am sure that this feedback will serve as an encouragement to all of our Ambassadors as we strive to continuously improve the quality of our services.

Giuseppe C. Friends - 25/02/2020 Confirmed reviews ALL

Arrived late on friday night, was welcomed by Mohammed, very nice and kind. What surprised me most was the call I received in the morning, for a "pre-welcome", by the Guest experience Manager, very kind lady (Fatima?). Nice room, but I have been to better Sofitel properties in the world. Had everything, very comfortable bed, large bathroom with well working shower and full of amenities. Breakfast was rich, but not memorable. Beautiful gym and health club, I enjoyed it. Fast wifi. All in all, I appreciated the kindness of all staff, but the room rate was exaggerated compared to other properties, also taking in consideration of the not so good location and lack of transportation. Other hotels of same level in better position were offering much cheaper rates. Let's say that only my loyalty to Accor made me stay there, otherwise I would have not booked it sorry to say.
