The 92-unit residence is under construction on King Khalid Road in the Al-Aziziyah district to the south of the city. The location benefits from convenient transport links: King Khalid Road is the city’s main arterial highway, while the nearby King Fahd Causeway links Saudi Arabia with Bahrain. Dammam railway station is a short drive away and connects the Eastern Province to the Saudi capital, Riyadh.
Citadines Al-Aziziyah Alkhobar will feature 36 studio apartments, 25 one-bedroom apartments and 30 two-bedroom apartments, as well as a 157-square-meter penthouse. Facilities will include a residents’ lounge, swimming pool and gym, and a three-story adjacent car park for visitors’ use. Guests will also be within easy reach of the neighborhood’s public beaches, restaurants, shops and recreational facilities, including Half Moon Bay and Alkhobar Corniche.
“We are very pleased to announce details of our latest serviced residence in Saudi Arabia, in partnership with Nebras Tourism Company,” said Vincent Miccolis, Ascott’s regional GM for Middle East, Africa and Turkey. “In the four years since we launched our first property in Saudi Arabia, we’ve established a market-leading presence with an expanding portfolio of international-standard properties in key destinations.”
Al-Saggaf, GM of Nebras Tourism Company, said: “We are delighted to partner with The Ascott Limited, the leading serviced-residence operator in Saudi Arabia today, and introduce the Citadines brand into Alkhobar.”

Furthermore, the property’s impressive amenities will appeal to long- and short-term visitors who enjoy the convenience and flexibility of a centrally located serviced apartment.”
