We stayed in this hotel on February 23-26 for a religious purpose (umra). The hotel is only five minutes walk to Haram Mosque. So, it is very convenient for us to do five times a day prayer. The hotel is also adjacent to Abraj Al Bait Mall. So, if you want to taste local foods, you will just need to go to P3 level of the mall. There should be plenty of choices there. You can buy local snacks in the mall for you to eat and or bring home as a gift for your family and or friends. The hotel security is tighter than most hotels because the Royal Family likes to stay there. The room is not only spacious enough, but also very modern and luxurious. The internet connection is very strong; no complain this time. We tried three restaurants: Mazaq (for snacks and light bites), Atyaf (buffet, mostly Middle Eastern foods) and Aja (Asian foods). They are all ok, especially lunch buffet at Atyaf. The service however is not consistent. Good service for lunch and dinner, but poor service for breakfast. The staffs in breakfast is like hesitant to serve. I know it is buffet and I know they are busy, but isn't it their job to serve the guests? One cook even amazingly refused to do my request of having soft-boiled eggs. It is actually a very easy task!
