I have stayed at the Dammam Sheraton twice now, and each time there is some sort of problem with the lift. Nevertheless, it is convenient if you are going to some of the government offices in Dammam, and is right next to a large shopping complex, allowing you the option of going to various restaurants (none of which, to be frank, is any good). The hotel is old and likely dates from the beginning of Dammam's oil-fueled boom. The atrium and reception area are tastefully decorated with marble, but the rooms are tired and worn out. Luckily, the gym area was added at a later time and is more much more modern, with great new equipment and a fairly spacious workout area. The staff is fairly friendly and courteous, although you should not expect much assistance if your questions are complicated (namely, about locations of various offices).
Unique Quality: The hotel's best attribute is its gym. More than that, it is well situated just off the Corniche, meaning that it is close to a number of commercial establishments and essential services.
The hotel was renovated, and it looks much prettier now. The rooms look more beautiful after they have got modern furniture, and the outside look is much much better with its glassy frontage.
Overlooking the Hotel is located approximately two miles from sea side of Dammam city, the 1st street is full of local and lebanese and american and indian restaurants,
Unique Quality: Guests can enjoy the fitness facility, outdoor tennis court, outdoor pools (seasonal), outdoor children's pool, barber shop, billiards, two restaurants, and sauna
All rooms have air-conditioning, hairdryers, irons/ironing boards, minibars, desks, and satellite channels.
Professional service, room is quite large and have the best pillows, they are very comfortable. Food is also good, but I prefer to go out exploring down town for some arabic food and a bit of shopping
Can you please tell me about some cheap good restaurants and hotels in ad dammam?and maybe other advice for an european goin there to work,pls.Thank you
Are you going to be in Dammam itself or in Dhahran or Al-Khobar? Dammam has a lot of very cheao Pakistani and Arab restaurants, where you can get half a broiled chicken, a huge plate of rice and a stack of pitta bread for less than 5 euros. There are also all the regular American fast-food chains, like KFC, Pizza Hut etc, but they are more expensive.
Most expats live in Dhahran or Al-Khobar. Dammam is a more traditional Arab town, but it has the best market and the cheapest shops and restaurants. If you get a multi-visa, you can go to Bahrain at the weekends, where there are night clubs, pubs and all sorts of other things!
i dont know where i am going exactly yet, i just know that my plane ticket ggoes to dammam. what can youb tell me about some cheap hhotels?and what are the prices..approximately...
thank you...keep in touch
Dammam Airport it's 30min by car to Dammam actully it's in Safoa but they call it Dammam Airport because it's the main city of the Eastren Province but anyhow all these locations Khobar, Dammam ,Dhahran it's so close to each other that u will not feel it's different town but ofcourse Khobar is the most modren among all .
Generally in K.S.A Transportaion either your own car or Taxi there r no public Transportation for inside the Town. "just between the Cities" and Taxis is not that expensive.
Food Mostly cheap compairing to Europe and there r a big varity .
Hotels ? The quite good hotels will be between 75$ & 120 $
