The House Hotel Jeddah CityYard, part of new lifestyle destination City Yard — home to upscale gourmet venues, community events and entrepreneurial networking, opened in the city’s trendy commercial hub — Al-Rawdah.
The House Hotel is a Kerten Hospitality luxury boutique hotel brand known for its distinctive properties that tell a story. Marrying art and culture with a blend of classic and contemporary styles, this collection of hotels offers guests boutique luxury experiences tailored for each property.
Maria Bou Eid, general manager of The House Hotel Jeddah CityYard, said: “We are thrilled to be opening our doors for our first guests very soon. Our team is ready to share a taste of the real authentic hospitality and personalized experiences in our lifestyle hotel, which is also part of such a dynamic mixed-use destination curated by our visionary owners — that now offers experiences to stay, connect, dine and have a place to be inspired.”
The 114-room hotel will be the focal point of the City Yard complex — Saudi Arabia’s first mixed-use lifestyle hub in the city’s upmarket district, making its mark as a luxury design-led hotel connecting guests and residents. The hotel venue is part of the vision of Pure Houses, City Yard owners, to bring transformative brands together that build a destination and create an opportunity for entrepreneurial networking, local community and pop-up events. The purpose-built lobby staircase will be a place to socialize, meet others over coffee and Arabic dates, and practice people-watching.
CityYard is at the heart of this new, urban and entertainment center in Jeddah. The Plaza is where guests and residents come together to enjoy a hand-picked collection of regional, local and entrepreneurial restaurants and lounges.
Other property highlights include a Baker and Spice Restaurant — an award-winning food shop and restaurant focusing on artisan food that will provide innovative in-room dining, serving breakfast at any time throughout the day. An authentic all-day Saudi breakfast concept will be another culinary gem at the Plaza where diners will be spoilt with a variety of options, such as Akiba Dori — the place where Japanese street food meets Tokyo Neapolitan pizza, Kumar — the place to sample sumptuous Indian cuisine, and Alsayed — one of the oldest fish restaurants in the Kingdom, in addition to the well-known Burger Boutique and Leclair de Genie Café, offering gourmet French food.
A private pool area surrounded by real olive trees will show a glimpse of Jeddah’s view. Food markets, pop-up retail, weekend organic markets and entertainment activities, music and art festivals will add another layer of leisure for residents and visitors in Al-Rawdah.
