As much as it holds a big name InterconTinental, maybe the only good thing in this hotel is the air conditioning lool. Room size is small, bathrooms are poor. Room service is wanting. The food selection isn't good at all. The only good thing is that it's not far from the holy mosque 4mins max.

Hotel is a 4 min walk to the holy mosque in madinah however you need to cross a 4 lane street that has no proper crossing. Excellent room service with very reasonable prices beats most restaurants in madinah. Try to stay away from the rooms advertised as "haram view"ًas they also overlook a busy street and windows have poor insulation.

Upon arrival we were notified that one of our two rooms would not be made available to us due to over booking. Management rectified this by upgrading us to a beautiful, spacious family suite. Service was good, breakfast was delicious! Front desk was pleasant. Breakfast area was slightly cramped.

This hotel is 2 or 3 star at best. The triple room was cramped with no space to even put down a prayer mat. The room was only serviced once in 5 days! I requested some toilet rolls and it took them over 10 hours to send someone up and he merely said that they had run out of toilet... More

We had booked an early check-in and unfortunately the day we arrived we were left waiting 6 hours since the guy (Tariq) at the reception desk found a loop hole and said that check in time was 4:00pm, which is true but failed to recognize our early booking and ordered us to pay 750 Riyal around £120 to check in...

i Stayed two nights in the hotel, it has a good location, walking distance to Holy Haram, and inside the shopping area, the room was good, the problem in the hotel is the only one elevator helps the whole hotel for the normal rooms, and the dining area dosent accept a huge number of guests.

I was having a hard time deciding which hotel to book in Madinah. I wanted to use my IHG points, so it was between this, Dar Al Iman and the Crowne Plaza. I finally decided on Dar Al Hijra mostly due to their bed configuration and lower point value. Since we are a family with 3 kids we needed something... More
