Elaf Taiba Hotel is location wise nice and economical hotel in Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is located at the corner of Gate of Musjid-e-Nabwi. People can walk easily to mosque for prayer after Azan. Restaurants and shopping is easily approachable.

This hotel is not that pricey...very near (100 metres) to the mosque and shopping area. Wifi is only available at certain spot of the lobby..none in the room. I think the hotel is fully occupied and the lobby is very crowded....I would recommend the hotel for its location only...

The best thing about the hotel is the location. It's really convenient because it's almost inside the compound of the prophet's mosque. You not only hear call to prayers, you can follow the prayers from the comfort of your room if for any reason you are not able to make it to the mosque. The staffs were helpful and professional....

This hotel deserved one star because of its location to the Masjid. The hotel was filthy, disgusting, and smelled worse than a barn. When we got into our hotel room there were dirty q-tips on the ground, the drawers smelled horrendous when you opened it, and everything seemed sticky. The hallway leading up to the room (Third floor) smelled like... More

Stayed here several nights recently and have stayed here previously a couple of times but that was about ten years ago. Location is very good in terms of entering masjid nabi saw but the hotel is in urgent need of renovation. The free wifi in the lobby is extremely slow and really needs to be upgraded.

The bathroom looks dark and moldy in place , hot water was available in spurts. They... More

Everything is falling off. The wood work , the carpets , sanitary fittings all needs replacement and not repairs... Hope the management heeds otherwise it will... More

Although the hotel staff is not friendly, the breakfast was a big joke. But the location is great and the view from the 13th floor was wonderful. Room AC was bad. I paid for my room through booking.com and when I reached at night the reception couldn't find my payment info in the reservation so I had to pay again... More
