I visited this hotel in Ramadan 2016. The hotel is located very close to the mosque. It is especially near the ladies entrance. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom facilities were basic.

We had booked this hotel on the understanding that our room would accommodate my family of four adults and two children. The room shockingly had only four beds. Since it was 2 am , we adjusted and slept. The next day I had to argue my case and they added one mattress reluctantly,which was put on the floor. Since we... More

I booked this hotel based on its amazing location, It was the only available hotel with walking distance to almasjid alharam. Unfortunately, this hotel was shockingly filthy which made me wish I didn't have to book it. If you have to book it, I strongly recommend bringing your own towels and sheets. Breakfast buffet is not worth the extra charge,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with an Umrah group. The hotel is very rundown and the rooms are not clean. The bathrooms are the worst part. The sink was stained yellow. The shower curtain was moldy and stained. The drain on the floor had a horrible smell coming from it. The other families in our group had similar problems... More

I stayed here for 9 days and I have to say the Hotel is in a great location at Gate 15 of the Haram. The Hotel has good service and clean facilities. The only downfall was the poor Wifi in the hotel and the lifts system. I spent 15minutes once waiting for a lift.

The hotel is good and staff is cooperative. Rooms are clean, spacious and some rooms comes with Haram view. Bathroom is average comes with a tub. Breakfast is not bad but can be improved. WiFi: Free WiFi available in the lobby. Location: Excellent, just next to gate 15 of Haram. Restaurants: The whole area is surrounded by restaurants and shops
