As expected and it is not my first time here. I would not think of alternative so far. The overall experience and staff helpfulness make the stay perfect. It is important to mention that breakfast is something should not be missed. Excellent place for families.

I visited Raffles Makkah with my family. I took two room suite. It's the best hotel close to Haram. Break fast was great. Also parking was free. Room size is big. Tea and coffee are complementary and can be served any time I will come again to Raffles for sure

We stayed at the superior Kaaba view room, we had a great unobstructed view of the Kaaba which allows for viewing the Kaaba easily as there is construction and a number of areas are blocked. The elevators are quick ... The food was ok, lots of variety at breakfast.

I stayed in the hotel with my wife and two daughters. The room was very nice. The Kaba view was amazing. The food was excellent. The hotel is expensive but it is worthy. Although there was some construction in Haram, it did not affect the view or my stay in the hotel.
