“Simply the best hotel in Madinah!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2012

Simply the best place to stay in Madinah, amazing location (a few meters from Masjid Nabawi), superb service, beautiful decor, outstanding breakfast. A great attention to every single detail. This is The Jewel of al Madinah. Highly recommended.

The thing about hotels in Makkah and Madinah is that they wear out quickly due to the high volume of people year around. The same goes for Shaza. My 1st stay was is a worn out room, however the following stays were excellent. The location is a few meters from the Haram plaza. The rooms are very beautifully decorated. The food is the best I have had in any hotel in Madinah. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. It's a great hotel and my 1st choice in Madinah.

I have been staying at the Shaza al Madina from the time the started operations. The overall experience was excellent except for their bell boy service which is really slow. The staff and their management is really courteous. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my family and friends.

Stayed at Shaza Madina during Umrah in Ramadan. By far the best hotel I have stayed in in Saudi over many years.
Extremely attentive staff who go out of their way to make sure you are more than comfortable. The hotel was fully occupied throughout my stay but this did not affect the service whatsoever.
Excellent rooms (very good quality beds and furniture), amazing bathrooms and fantastic restaurants. Chefs are prepared to put together something off the menu if need be even during peak times.
Management was always visible and interactive which was very pleasant.

Would only recommend Shaza Madina to anyone visiting this beautiful city.

Room Tip: Junior Suite is of a very good size and the bathroom is large.

I was lucky enough to spend part of my Umrah here. The decor is fantastic mixing contemporary design with traditional middle eastern flare.
The service was nothing short of excellent where I felt very comfortable and the rooms were impeccable. I will and have already recommended this holiday to many of my friends and family, will definately be back!
