very close and convenient to haram, the primary purpose of any body to visit Mecca, the Umal Qura. The room we stayed for the first night was smelly but the management was nice enough to give us better room as regards smell and also the view.

One of the most convenient hotels in Mecca near the holy mosque. It is within a very reasonable walking distance. Excellent suites and service. Great breakfast buffet. The shopping mall is a great advantage.

Top location. You step into mosque on stepping out of this hotel. Great location if you ve kids and elderly with you. This hotel is inside clock tower. On some floors you be shopping and food which means you don't need to travel far.

3rd time stay here with family. Excellent service and very upmarket . Feels quiet and personal considering how busy the area is with pilgrims . Will defiantly return and recommend to anyone. A bit more pricier than others but it is No.1 in Makkah

I stayed with family. As a matter of fact, the Valet Parking was less than what I expected. All what I wanna say is It's a luxurious hotel with 3 Stars Service! Facilities worth nothing with low level of management!

I will be visiting the hotel again if rooms and rates are available at a reasonable price. The rates somehow hike in High Season. Excellent hotel 5... More

It had such spacious balcony and amazing views of the Holy Ka'aba. Loved every minute of my stay . Everything is awesome from check - in till check - out including room service personal butler...

It is indeed a very happy stay. We felt home and all staff did their best to make our stay enjoyable. Rooms are very nice and comfortable.
