Pool review highlights
It's a excellent choice, if you are going to Jeddah for work. Nice staff, great pool and good gym right across the street, free for hotel guest. Wonderful location, with supermarket and restaurants nearby and you cannot miss Sands Hotel's chicken shoarma, the best in town.
... get used to it. But the TV is modern and flat, no one can say no updating has occurred because clearly TV's have been replaced. Check out the pool at night. There are multicolored lights in it. The place is so old fashioned including waiter and bell hop uniforms. Come on, the room internet...

I don't want to waste my time and yours by repeating everything that has already been said.
Yes, it's old, but it's well kept. The metallic elevators are fine by the way. You are not paying for elevators. The room decor and wood paneling is a bit of a time warp once you step in it, but the place is really okay when you get used to it. But the TV is modern and flat, no one can say no updating has occurred because clearly TV's have been replaced.

Check out the pool at night. There are multicolored lights in it. The place is so old fashioned including waiter and bell hop uniforms. Come on, the room internet is not that bad. It does work-most of the time. A few times it did go out but only for a minute or two, then I was able to get back on again right away. I mean if you're trying to do enormous downloads that's different, but for routine things it's fine and free.

Location and price can't be beat. They should just tell you they can give you access to the gym across the street. They shouldn't even bother telling you there is a gym "inside." Really, you don't want to see it. But this place is not a one or two star rating, that is just hypercritical. If that's how you feel then only stay in 5 star accommodations. The big room keys? What a laugh, how much more old fashioned can you get.

Also, this place has 3 o'clock check out. The room service menu is available 24 hours a day, the entire menu. These things make it a very guest friendly hotel in my mind.

The Sands reminds me of a hotel I often stayed at in California in the 70's and 80's. Another reviewer mentioned something about this place also reminded them of an old hotel in California. It too had multicolored lights I remember as a child.

I was allocated a room at this hotel. The hotel is old and in need of serious refurbishment. The rooms are quite large although furnished with old plastic upholstered furniture quite unsuitable for the business traveller. Wi-fi in the room did not work which meant I had to locate in the public area near the restaurant to gain access to the Internet.

The leisure facilities pool and gym were of an appalling standard and unusable. This was clearly acknowledged by the management as they provided free entrance to a private gym across the street, which was open 13:00 to 01:00 daily.

The staff, without exception, were offhand and impolite lacking interpersonal skills and awareness of the meaning of customer service.

All in all a hotel to be avoided.

In the middle of Jeddah means also a lot of noise! Construction , garbage truck after midnight and Room service very early!
Good lebanese food but not a lot of choice. Small swimming pool with 'very' hot water. But the price is not bad.
