“Excellent location,average service”
Reviewed February 1, 2013 via mobile

I love the location of the hotel, it's right in front of haram and has amazing view,you truly feel you are praying inside the haram. The only downside of this hotel is service, very slow and you have to call several time to get their attention and room service delivered the wrong food twice!

Been to this hotel over three times and the reason is its location. It is close to the holy mosque and is still good. The only downside is the food in all restaurants, cafe and room service is way too expensive. You will find all restaurants and fast food services in the mall which is 5-10 mins walk away. Breakfast buffet is nice.

If I have to write in details I will end up with a book. Every thing was just perfect in this great hotel. I have been to many hotels and especially Intercontinental hotels all around the world and this was one of the best. The location: you go out of the hotel you find your foot step on the Haram . The Food is excellent , there is a variety of dishes from all around the world . The welcoming and helpful front desk staff " Thank you Abdul Rahim " . Fast room service . Efficient people on phone . Smart elevator system . Wide , clean , well equipped and furnished rooms with stunning HARAM view . I highly recommend it and sure if I have to come back again I will go no where else .

To be able to walk to the Haram from your hotel room in a couple of minutes is just amazing. Perhaps some hotels would have become complacent with such a privileged location but I certainly did not get any sense of this when we stayed here during our Umrah trip. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. It is true that the hotel is showing its age to an extent but it remains a grand building and was very clean. As has been mentioned by other reviewers the elevator system is very efficient. My family and I found the food very good although we only ate breakfast there. We were very happy with our stay and would definitely recommend to others.
