The traditional gateway to Mecca, Jeddah is the most fascinating and cosmopolitan of Saudi Arabia’s major cities. Recently opened in the upmarket Al Rawdah district, The House Hotel Jeddah City Yard sits in a mixed-use complex with 114 rooms and suites, a rooftop pool, unique food and beverage concepts, and health, wellness, and networking spaces.
Envisioning a one-stop destination for the creative community, both local and international, architect Ayman Almehmadi designed three architectural masses connected by a bridge that maximize views, daylight, and fresh air. The three minimalist structures shape a welcoming plaza, ornamented by a generous pool with fountains and a green promenade that is a contemporary equivalent to the traditional souk. The outdoor spaces enrich this vibrant district through 14 restaurants including its own Baker & Spice eatery, a micro-roasted cafe, Indian fusion cuisine, Japanese street food, and coastal Saudi fare, as well as many entertainment choices.
A highlight here is a social networking hub welcoming young aspiring drivers from all walks of life to connect, support, and collaborate on new projects. All in all, The House Hotel Jeddah City Yard is a dynamic, fascinating starting point to modern Saudi Arabia.
