The hotel is about 10 minutes from the Prophet mosque. It is right inside the central area with lots of shops, malls, and restaurants.
The rooms are nicely furnished and the hotel is brand new. The room has good size and the bathroom is also good. There is fridge, TV, and coffeemaker. However, compared with its Macca brother hotel (Royal Dar El Eman), the rooms of the Maccah brother are much larger. Nice view from the room (see picture). The reception area is a bit small. Also, although there are no less than 8 elevators, it sometimes take some time time to arrive. There is strange problem with TV set and one needs to reboot every now and then to make it work. We had lodging only so no chance to comment on food but I would say it is good from the looks at the restaurant area.
There is free Internet access for 1/2 hour each 12 hours period which was adequate for basic e-mail access, facebook, etc. I had a laptop and phone so I could have 2 hours/day free which was plenty enough given that most of the time one is either in the mosque or shopping :-)
There were no major problems of any sort and our stay was comfortable but maybe I would pick the Movenpick hotel at Madinah or Western AlHarithiah as packages with these had almost some price but it is much closer and I think could be better.
