I stayed here while performing 'Umrah. I booked a 'quad room' which was essentially a double room with four single beds. The hotel was clean, very well maintained and facilities were good. There is a very spacious and comfortable lobby. The thing that stood out was the customer service. It is clear that the management have paid attention here and... More

Hardship is reawared thoroughly during Umrah and this is exactly what we endured here. Firstly we had been completely ripped off with the room. Booking a quad room we discovered they had given us a double room with 4 single beds. They very strategically removed all other furniture from the room to make space. The location is very bad. If...

I stayed in this hotel with my wife for one week in February 2014, for Umrah. The hotel from outside is not impressive and doesn’t seem fancy, but once you get in you will know why it is unique and beautiful. It has a very oriental design in every detail. The lobby and floors halls are full of beautiful Islamic... More

We stayed in this hotel for four days, one of the most annoying things about pictures is that they do not describe the sounds. When looking at the picture of this hotel it sure looked very fancy, and it was, but the hotel is surrounded by construction work which make noises 24/7. When we arrived at this hotel they didn't...

We just spent four nights in this hotel as a family of four members. Its a five stars hotel located around 600 meters from Haram. There is excellent shuttle service but you can walk it faster in a matter of 5-10 minutes because of the traffic jam near Haram. The hotel have luxury lobby which may be one of the... More

After you pass all the nice, and closer hotels to Haram here comes us " Al shohada" you're looking at 15 min walk. It could be less than that or even more. It really depends on what time you're going. If you are going right before Azan, then good luck. You need to leave at least an hr prior to... More

Amazing hotel just 5-7 min walk from the Masjid Al-Haram. Their buffet and lobby are worthwhile and I would definitely stay here again! The lobby has washrooms which is of great convenience and they have a juice bar in the main floor as well. Service was top quality for the buck
