Over all cleanliness need full attention, especially bathroom, there are left over from the previous guest, behind the doors. The breakfast is quite expensive, regardless the verities and quality. The location is okay, .just walking distance to holy haram parking, even though when I arrived no space, but I understand the situation, staffs are helpful.

Affordable hotel Helpful staff 5 min walking to the haram Old furniture Close to the markets There is a Money exchanger in front of the hotel but if you consider saving few dollars there are few money exchangers around ask them for the price because they will have different prices but the difference will be little

This is one of the bad experiences I had in Madinah. Though most of madinah's hotels are disappointing, but Dar Al Hijra is even worse from all aspects. Bad and careless staff, poor furniture and awful food. I write this review while I'm sitting in the Presedintial suite, which is one of their most luxurious and expensive suites!

Very convenient just 5mins walk to Prophet's (pbuh) mosque. Clean rooms and washroom. The bed was huge and comfortable. All kind of amenities near to it like pharmacy, money changer, supermarkets, shopping and restaurants. The breakfast is expensive soo we did not opt tht option but got all kinds of food on way back frm mosque after prayer.

We arrived at 12 noon and couldn't get access to our rooms - we had to wait till gone 6pm which was frustrating given our long flight and car journey. We had booked 2 rooms and wanted adjoining rooms but were given rooms on 2 different floors. The breakfast was barely worth having - there was no selection, no butter,... More

My husband and I stayed there while my husband was on a short business trip in Madinah. We chose this particular hotel for three reasons: First, the location - a 1 minute walk away from Al Masjid An Nabawi. Second, it's an Intercontinental brand. And third, it was very affordable. The hotel has an underground parking that is free of... More

Warm welcome at reception was a good start. Helpful and professional staff. A lovely spacious room with working equipment and furniture in a good condition. Internet speed was very good in room. Parking is good. Nice mini bar. Did not try having meals at the hotel. Location is very close to Haram and in the center of shopping places.
