- 5-star accommodations with separate kitchen in hotel rooms, 4 restaurants, bowling alley, free video game arcade, ice skating rink, fitness center, grocery store onsite. The security here is incredible - K9, car inspections, ID checks, mirrors underneath cars, Saudi National Guard protected, two gates that cars must pass through before entering, camera identification to get into the building.
Pleasant low-rise hotel on the northern outskirts of town, easily accessed from Dhahran or Dammam, but with absolutely nothing in walking distance. Nice rooms, pool, poolside cafe with food and shisha.
The Park Inn Hotel Al Khobar is on King Faisal Bin Abdulaziz Road, the main causeway with links to commercial hubs, Dammam, Jubail and Hofuf.
The newest of the Dammam-Dhahran-Khobar trio, Khobar is generally considered the most pleasant of the bunch, thanks to its seaside location and beachside Corniche. Besides, Khobar is most organised and has the best pedestrian friendly walk ways, and women have fewer restrictions (in terms of wearing a hijab) compared to other eastern cities.
