The hotel itself is not too bad, though the distance from the the Masjid Al-Haram makes it it a bad choice for a hotel specially with the terrible transport in the city of Mecca. It also advertises the availability of a WiFi internet which is rather poor or non-existent! If you want an easier way to do your prayers, then find a closer hotel! Room service is good but housekeeping is not. Front desk people are OK.
