Al Madina Kareem Hotel
Ranked #3 of 89 Specialty Lodging in Medina
Reviewed February 23, 2014

This is a lovely little hotel which is just 5 to 7 minutes walk from the Prophet's Mosque and near to the women's entrance. The staff was courteous and friendly, the room and bathroom were clean. The hotel is not very big, so obviously the rooms are not spacious. But really, who goes to Madinah to stay in a hotel room. Very little time is spent in the room so it should be sufficient. The bed was comfortable so we slept well at night.

Breakfast was nice and it was free with our booking. Overall, a great value for our money. This is a 3-star hotel but I think the experience of staying here is much better than some 4-star hotels in the area.

Pros: Perfect location at a reasonable price and decent breakfast.

Cons: Small room, but couldnt be bothered much because I was here to pray and spend time at Nabawi mosque.

All in all, it is a 2-3 star hotel but a trade off for its location

Room Tip: Check in time at 3PM. Dont expect early check in. The hotel is nearest to the Lady's prayer area...

Spent a night at the hotel with my family. We reached an hour before the check in time and were told to wait for some time which wasn't a problem. The room and the washroom was clean. The bed was also comfortable with clean sheets. The receptionist was a reasonable guy and was nice in his conversation. The place is around 5 minutes walk from the Prophet's Mosque. Vehicle parking was not available at the hotel but there was ample parking in the vicinity. Got a good deal online and it was sure good value for money. Would prefer staying here during my next trip if I get a similar deal. The only issue were the sounds from the nearby construction site in the morning.

Room Tip: Stayed at room 909 which is on the top floor.

Stayed there 3 days in June 2013. Unfortunately electricity was cut all over Haram area for 24 hours but I could not blame the hotel. They actually had backup charge to operate the elevators and allow for one light bulb per room.

I made the reservation through booking and found out that it was not confirmed when I arrived... I waited sometime till the reception arranged a room...they were very helpful.
The A/C hardly worked and maintenance never showed up although I called.

The hotel is 5-7 minutes walk to Haram gates... that is 10-12 minutes to get inside the holy mosque.

The room and bathroom were clean, TV worked, free Wifi, basic breakfast, no elevator issues compared to other hotels.

Room Tip: Check the AC before you checkin

The hotel is acceptable for Medina and Saudi Arabia. the staffs are OK, the rooms are OK too, the A/C works properly. it is near to the Holy Mosque. the food is quite nice and relatively cheap.
the problems was :
1. there is no hair dryer in the room. ( I asked several times, the reception always told me two hours later and he never gave us any)
2. the internet speed is not good. however it is enough for checking the map, etc.
