Shaza Al Madina
Ranked #3 of 157 Hotels in Medina
Reviewed October 10, 2012

The hotel has an excellent location, literally 100 yards from the Prophet's Mosque. The decor of the hotel is subdued elegance. Stayed for two nights, three weeks before Haj. So Medina was quite crowded and busy. But despite thIs, the service was simply superb. For example, at the breakfast buffet which was very busy, a waiter took the two tea cups out of my hands to help me to a table, without being asked. The food selection was excellent also. Room service was courteous and prompt. I would wholeheartedly recommend this hotel. I certainly intend to stay there again!

I have stayed in a number of hotels in Medina and this is probably my favourite just eding Dar Al Iman. The decor of the hotel had a nice Arabic feel, a big comfotable bed, decent variety of channels and a generous shower space. Check in and check out was smooth with great service and breakfast was excellent too. Located very close to the haram and shops.

Simply the best place to stay in Madinah, amazing location (a few meters from Masjid Nabawi), superb service, beautiful decor, outstanding breakfast. A great attention to every single detail. This is The Jewel of al Madinah. Highly recommended.

The thing about hotels in Makkah and Madinah is that they wear out quickly due to the high volume of people year around. The same goes for Shaza. My 1st stay was is a worn out room, however the following stays were excellent. The location is a few meters from the Haram plaza. The rooms are very beautifully decorated. The food is the best I have had in any hotel in Madinah. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. It's a great hotel and my 1st choice in Madinah.

I have been staying at the Shaza al Madina from the time the started operations. The overall experience was excellent except for their bell boy service which is really slow. The staff and their management is really courteous. I would definitely recommend this hotel to all my family and friends.
