We were return customers after four years, our last visit was in 2011. The staff, accommodation, service and cleanliness have taken a nose dive in this place. Despite a booking for four nights, we left the place after the first night to the nearby Hilton hotel. We understand that Dar al Taqwa, as well as several other front row hotels... More

The location of this hotel is simply unbeatable. Located right opposite to Gate No. 23 of the Haram, you can walk barefoot to the Mosque without any trouble. Gate No. 23 is the gate through which both males and females enter, hence, a big boon to the ladies of the family. Rooms are a little small, with beds squeezed into... More

Staff are very very rude especially the canteen. They do not want to help unless ur an arab. Even though from uk they dont car very disrespectfull. Good location but would never stay here again becuase if your not Arab you are not welcome simple as that no matter how much you pay.

Stayed here for 4 nights with my wife and infant of 2 years in May 2015. The location is exceptional but coming from The Intercontinental in Makkah to this hotel which is apparently meant to be on par is definitely a huge downgrade. I upgraded to a Haram view room but still the room is smaller than average. The hotel... More

I first stayed in the Dar al Taqwa in 2011 and greatly enjoyed our stay during a family umrah package deal. Based on that experience we decided to stay there again during a recent umrah - unfortunately, it is not the same hotel. On the positive side is its location - ideal particularly for women being so close to the... More

Though not among the best 5 Star hotels in Madina as it used to be when it was an IHG hotel, it's still well kept and the best thing about this hotel its right in front of the Holy Mosque. The ladies gate is right in front . When you step out of the hotel you literally stepping into the... More

We arrived early morning, and our booked room was not ready, but they upgraded it to " Haram view" room with no extra charge. - nice... More

This hotel is not a 5 star hotel by any means. It pains me to say if you are not an arab don't expect to get a smile or any type of service from the front desk. They even argued as to who would check me in! No one in this hotel seems to enjoy their job. The fridge in... More
