We stayed here for 3 nights on a booking with Dome Tours travelling from the UK. As others have alluded to, the location of the hotel is excellent, with a 1 minute (max) walk to the closest gate to the haram. However, this is the only positive aspect of this hotel. It would not be an understatement to say I... More

Location, Location, Location! This hotel is in the best location (behind Prophet Mosque and kind of on the front row of hotels - opposite Anwar Al Madinah Mövenpick Hotel) and is especially ideal for women staying as it is very close to the women gates - about 1 minute walk (men's gate very close too - add another 30 seconds!)....

The breakfastwas really good and was acceptable to our Asian / English taste and the rooms were clean and tidy with everything in working order - and... More

Stayed here after Hajj. It was a busy period and naturally standard of service tended to falter. We had a suite with Masjid al Nabawi view which was priceless, otherwise it wasn't value for money. The beds were ok but the pillows & linens were not what one would expect from a hotel of this category. Same verdict applies for... More

I've stayed for the first time on 16th October 2013. The location is simply near Masjid Nabawi in Haram. Fast check in & check out with English speaking Receptionist. We stayed in a room with 4 beds. TV Channel could be set with more option. Fridge in the room was not working. The room is OK and comfortable enough. Basement... More

Pillows got a lot of mildew spots. Mites everywhere. Informed receptionist and ignored me. The receptionist didn't even write the room number down. If hygiene concerns you, avoid booking this hotel. No wifi and breakfast is expensive. Employees doesn't speak English. You have to call reception many times to get things done.

I have been staying in this hotel since last 4 years. Latest, I was there from 22nd Aug to 24 Aug 2013. Its a 3 star hotel almost opposite to Haram. It is my 1st choice in Madinah mainly because of their location, friendliness & reasonable rates as other hotels with same location charge too much. Food quality is average,... More

We stayed 5 nights during Ramadan of this year. Its a 3-star Hotel by international standards, which worked well for us since we were spending most of our time at the Masjid e Nabawi!

Location is more than suitable as mosque is right across the street. We stayed there for 3 nights rooms were spacious and clean. The breakfast was good, if you are going for Hajj or Omrah, this is a good hotel to stay in, it is not luxurious, but it will meet your needs.

This was my second time I stayed there. Its very clean, helpful Egyptian staff and very close to the Masjid e nabawi. It is expensive however its literally a 3 min walk to the masjid. Breakfast is average which is ok. Rooms are clean and comfortable. We got lucky and got a room over seeing the Masjid e Nabawi.
