From the moment we entered in the lobby, it smelt really bad of a sewer / toilet pipe leak. Our rooms were filthy and hadn't been cleaned upon checking in - room smelt too. On the plus side, they were instant in fixing it by hoovering up and changing the bed sheets - as well as using the good old... More

Rooms were hardly offered to be cleaned. Had to ask constantly for tissues etc...but was asked to call room service number without any joy. (passing the buck) Very difficult to shower the young children as you can't bring down the shower hose/head and the glass show curtain restricts movment. Water drops from shower onto floor. The staff at Breakfast were... More

I am writing this review during 2nd day of review. I do not agree to some poor reviews regarding internet and breakfast. We are at 13th floor and reception is excellent, and breakfast was as good as any other 4 star hotel. I would say no surprise, hotel is what I expected and paid.

The hotel is very close to Al-Haram, around 3min walk. The breakfast buffet is good and the elevators are sufficient even in the rush hours. Its only disadvantage is the cleanliness of the room and the towels.

Breakfast buffet was really poor especially d croissants. We had two triple rooms and in one of the rooms, there were no switches to turn on or off the... More

The hotel states it is 4* and is charging accordingly. However I would say its more a 2*-3*. Decor was rubbish, furniture was outdated, no wifi in room 3ven though advertised, breakfast was poor. Room service only came once during our 3 night stay even though I had requested it 2 times earlier aswell. The only good things were the... More

Evil people! Pure theft, they stole an extra 600 SAR from our card when we paid by cash. Disgusting customer service, especially when we were there on pligrimage. We booked one night with Booking.com for 2 rooms and cost us 1300 SAR, we paid by cash when checking out but realised that they already charged us 600 on the card,... More

The location was excellent ( 1-2 min walk to Haram). Breakfast was very poor with food not delicious at all. Labels for food in breakfast was missing which created confusion. Wifi signals in rooms was very weak. Had to stand in lobby and hallway to use Internet.

Original hotel booking wasn't confirmed so we found that this hotel had a free room, situated close to the haram, less than 5min walk, although it's not to fancy from the outside once you get in it's decent and their service is good, their buffet is average though it's packed with people, rooms are reasonably clean and we'll set out,...
