We were fortunate to stay in a suite, overlooking the haram. The size of the hotel is ideal, we took a look at the Fairmount, but it was so big you needed a map to get around. This hotel was magic, the service excellent and the food extraordinaryily good. Dates (to die for) and coffee after returning from prayers. The dinner service was the best i have ever experienced; every type of food and exceptional quality. We were able to get from our room and inside the Haram within 10 minutes (can't ask for more). It seems wrong to enjoy the facilities so much when you are going to the Holy City but the Raffles made everything incredibly enjoyable.
