Chose this hotel on the basis of TA reviews and were very disappointed with many aspects of this hotel. What we liked – they did let us check in before the stated time and check out late after the stated time. The room itself was OK and everything worked. What we did not like – 1. I specifically asked for... More

The best thing about the hotel is the service. They attend to all your needs. However, the rooms are of 3 stars hotel. Specially the bathroom, there were molds and scratches everywhere. Not sure if it was just our room which had this problem or not. Overall, it was a nice stay close to Al-Haram, and within the same building... More

The food was so tasteful and really great. But the staff is having some slow response, we have called the staff to open our connecting door at night two times, but we got no result so at the morning we call it again and finally the staff is coming.

I went there for 3 days to make Omrah, it is near to the Holy Haram. It had great breakfast and good staff but my only complaint was the furnitures and expensive car barking. I Hope you find my review helpful.

The best thing about the hotel is the location of it, because it is only a 5 min walk to Haram. Supermarket and food court is already in the building, which is... More

Advantages: One of the best & nearest hotels to masjid haram (only few meters away), with relatively acceptable prices, excellent services, very good (open buffet) breakfast variety & a great restaurant for dining. The main disadvantage is the parking which you have to pay A LOT for it (over 200 SAR/night)!! And you may not find a free space for... More

I just love to stay here. The location is the most excellent part. We always take triple bedroom which is very spacious. The staff were friendly and courteous. The food was good with lot of variety.

This hotel was good overall. No major issues with service or rooms. Rooms were clean and well maintained. The only issue we had was receiving enough towels for the # of occupants. Also some of those in our group were missing beds in their rooms, which is not great when you check in late at night. The close proximity to... More
