This a big hotel but not very close to Masjid Al-Haram. It is around 400 meters away from Haram Sharif but at a walkable distance. All types of shops are available surrounding this hotel for shopping, dining etc.

The hotel is very good in everything, the only disadvantage that it is not the most close to Masjed ElHaraam , if you will walk it will take around seven to ten minutes to reach Masjed ElHaraam, the also offer a shuttle bus service round trip, but this will not be efficient in high seasons like Ramadan or Hajj.

Had issues with bathroom. Customer service was virtually non existent. Charging 5 star prices but providing a poor service. Accommodation would say is 3 plus stars but their customer service was a real let down. No free wifi access at all.

I have opportunity to stay in this hotel in December 2014-January 2015. It was terrible experience. The reception staff appear to be in the worst state to welcome customers. There faces were as if they are in mourning state. The fat Saudi duty manager sitting on the table has no manner to welcome guest. If ask a question ignore first... More

Great hotel with great location from Al-Haram. Stayed here in Feb 2013 for umrah with my 2 kids. A bit dusty because of the construction nearby the hotel. They also provide free shuttle form hotel to Al-Haram.

The hotel is in a walking distance to Al Haram, around 500 meters. The rooms are very good with some of the best amenities that I ever seen in a hotel. Rooms are clean and have nice beds, with a big bathroom. Breakfast has many varieties, but is usually busy. The area around offers all types of restaurants and shopping... More
