Alhamdulillah we performed Umrah in March 2014. This hotel was amazing. I loved how it opened into the courtyard of the Haram! Its very convenient to be able to get to the Masjid quickly, especially when the rush before Salaah starts. Also, the hotel food was amazing! Breakfast buffet had a lot of variety and awesome food.

Alhamdulillah we performed Umrah in June 2013 from Dar Al Ghufran. During our 5 days in Makkah we learnt many things through trial and error which we would like to pass on to others to make their stay a little easier so I hope you find these tips useful inshaa Allah. Nice hotel, modern and clean. Excellent location few minutes... More

We stayed at Dar Al-Gufran during Umrah trip and absolutely superb place in all amenities. So close to Al-Haram, convenient to go back and forth to Al-Haram any time of the day. Short walk from lobby down few escalators and you are just outside al-Hararm. Excellent breakfast buffet of huge varieties of all types of international foods and great. Overall... More

Fairly tolerable hotel; booked it for its proximity to the Haram. Had booked a quad room but was given a cramped 3-bedroom and informed that an extra bed would be placed in the room. on our objection, were given a larger room (again 3-bed with extra bed, but slightly more spacious). The room had a faintly dank smell to it;... More

We choose that hotel because its short distance from harm its about 100 m to reach el mataf. It was also clean with good furnished rooms. The reception staff was nice & helpful they gave us room with good view but they didn't have rooms with harm view. the food was quite good. The elevators were fast & with big... More

Closest proximity to Haram by being located in Safwa Tower. Lift and lobby not crowded (unlike ZamZam hotel). Nice IDs, relatively bigger room and bathroom. Friendly staff. Lots of restaurants one floor down the escalator, and also shops. It's our favourite hotel. We always check-in here while in Makkah as it's one of the cheapest 5-star hotels.
