This hotel is located outside the 'haram' so non Muslims are able to stay there. I found this hotel to be lacking any atmosphere and was relatively empty as hotels go. The bedroom was a decent size with a good sized bathroom. However, for an empty hotel, you find that as the rooms are not turned over regularly, the staff soon forget to dust and keep the rooms clean. I found the bathroom was unkempt. As there was hardly anybody staying there, I was not excited about eating in the hotel and took the hotel minibus to the town center. Non Muslims will not be able to do that as the town center is out of bounds for people of other religions. The breakfast was equally dull with little variety. I don't think any place in Medina is for leisure activities so do not think of going to Medina expecting to be having fun. Medina is a totally religious place and you are expected to behave with total respect for islam. The staff was very polite and helpful. I would say that for a business trip this hotel is fine.

The only good thing about this hotel is leaving it! Hotel staff and service is bad, food is bad... Sorry they should take down the 5 stars outside the hotel and have only 1 star. It took over 3hours to get a room as they were full even though my booking had been made. Better stay some place in the city but it is only for muslim people.

Pretty dull and boring hotel to be honest, seemed empty when we were there even though we had booked the last two rooms in the hotel.

Food was ok off the menu but dinner and breakfast is buffet style which isn't great, pretty bland food, the only restaurant in the hotel is more like a canteen, brightly lit, no atmosphere at all.

the hotel itself is clean enough but its in the middle of nowhere and i wouldn't personally stay there again, very soft beds and my bed squeaked every time i moved in it, i mentioned it to reception and nothing was done about it, in saying that reception is run by fat lazy arab men who don't seem to interested in any issues you may have!!

Also no gym, apprently 'its still being built' yet it says on their website that they have gym facilities.

Rooms are clean and quiet. Breakfast buffet is adequate although not impressive. Hotel location is away from the "restricted" areas of the "holy city"--even so--the staff reminds non-Muslim guests not to "wander extensively" outside the hotel grounds.
I have stayed here several times and find it satisfactory.

We stayed at the Le Meridien Medina while traveling in Saudi Arabia. I was told that the hotel used to be a Sheraton hotel. The hotel was ok. It seemed pretty empty while I was there and it was very dimly lit. We had buffets for breakfast and dinner and the food was pretty decent. The hotel is not very close to the center of town and you will need to take a Taxi everywhere. If you plan on sightseeing and want to spend a lot of time at the Haram, I might suggest a closer hotel. Overall the hotel was ok but not up to the standards of some of the other Le Meridien hotels I have stayed in. I think this is one of the major hotels for airline crew in the area.

Room tip: Make sure you ask for your SPG upgrade. They won't give it to you unless you ask.
