Just few words, room service sucks! I have been there with my father and brother in a triple room for an Ummrah trip. You have to call the room service many times to respond Most of the house keeping members don't get your room well done except if you paid a good tips, they might ignore it at all. In... More

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.

Very nice hotel, 4-star quality. friendly staff. living room styled lobby with ample seating arrangements. very clean and spacious rooms. bathrooms are on excellent condition. didn't take breakfast so cannot comment. Walking distance to Masjid-al-Haram. Nice neighbouhood. all essentials available at the doorstep of the hotel. only downside - our room had a restricted view.

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.
