Where to stay in Jeddah

A major pilgrimage and commercial site with large numbers of visitors year-round, Jeddah offers a wide range of accommodations, ranging from low-budget to super deluxe. Hotels spread primarily along the north part of the town port, with another large cluster found in Mecca. Beachfront establishments can be found predominantly in Atallah Happy Land Park in the north, and in Al Hamra’a next to the port, while budget hotels are scattered around Al Faisaliyah. You can find most major international chain hotels throughout the city. Outside Hajj season, accommodation in Jeddah is generally cheaper than that in Riyadh.
