Stayed here during Umrah in March 2013. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was at the doorstep of the holy mosque. The room was spacious and clean and in my case, the side window was facing the Kaabah which was an extra bonus. Staff were helpful. Breakfast was excellent. There was a shopping mall in the tower where we had our other meals and did a bit of shopping as well. There is also a comfortable praying area on one of the floor which had the clear view of the Mosque and Kaabah (which I used on one occasion). Overall, I would definitely recommend this place to anyone coming to Mecca for umrah or hajj.
