4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

stayed here with wife and kids for a couple nights on 25mar in a premium room. Beds and linen are of excellent quality. toilets are ok size and has shower only no bath tub.
housekeeping staff only changed linen and replaced towels everyday. we loved the breakfast, very good quality and serves truly international menu. only bad experience we had when we asked for an extra blanket it took more than 1 hr and after several calls. overall highly recommended hotel

Just returned from my Umrah stayed at this hotel for 5 nights , the location is very close to the Masjid Al Haram only few walking steps , down the hotel there is a huge shopping mall with so many shops , super market , food court and pharmacies

the hotel is clean but the carpets in the rooms is noticeably stained , bottles of water are offered every day by the room service breakfast is the biggest plus of this hotel it's repetitive but have so many choices .

i hade a very good time and enjoyed the place

We arrived on Feb 20th from Medina.Checked into room 710-found flies in the room,feces on the commode and a major flood in the bathroom.The housekeeper on our floor was totally disinterested in our complaints.We went down to the lobby and made it very clear that we will not put up with this.We went off for prayers and when we came back- manager Osama had moved us to a new room which was really nice except the phones did not work-we had an amazing view of Kaaba.We were scheduled to be picked up at midnight Saturday 22nd by our travel company provided limo which we had already paid for in New York city.However this jerk decides not to show up-we were panicking.Brother Faisal was an angel at the front desk.He let me use his cellphone and called around himself-e even came down at 2 AM because building security would not let the driver in.I cannot thank him enough- he is really caring and refused money to pay for all his calls-he was selfless- I congratulate the hotel on hiring him and thank him from the bottom of my heart- Dr Salim Contractor ,New York

Beautifully and newly decorated. The price is good and the location to Haram is magnificient.

Centrally located in marwa tower, one of the towers in Abraj Albait.

Not too crowded and therefore is convinient and exclusive. The family suite with haram view is spacious and comfortable

We went for Umrah and had a chance to stay in this hotel overall a good experience but due to a lot of crowd for Umrah the hotel was Already full. Nice helping staff though little late to clean up the rooms .Breakfast was awesome,but the Premium rooms which I think are recently renovated have very small shower cabins which are quite uncomfortable and we tried to change the rooms but the ones available had same shower cabins in the Bathroom.The only good advantage was every place is easily accessible from this hotel you get down and there you are in The Haram Sharif .Upper floor rooms are recommendable specially Kaaba view ones.
