i stayed here for about 4N just after ramzan eid hence the hotel was quite empty. the hotel can be tricky to reach from the car drop off area as there arent any signboards as the clock tower bldgs have other hotels as well. the local security is arab hence language is also an issue explaining to them where you want to go. to get from ones room to the haram is quite a task as we have to change 2 sets of elevators and then walk trough the mall and then start the walk to the haram. breakfast spread is huge and very nice. even the restraunt has a partial kaaba view. the rooms are nice and cosy. a good feature is that the azaan can be heard in the speakers in your room ( volume adjustable ). toilets are nice and clean. view from the kaaba view rooms is spectacular but costs a bomb. the people at the reception are a bit arrogant/ rude ( take it or leave it attitude ) and he made us wait 2 hrs to allot 22 rooms of our family inspite of having all the booking with him. rooms were connecting so thats a good feature as we were all family. but only 1 set of 2 rooms are connecting and not all.
