The hotel is located beside the Prophets mosque, it's so convenient as you can still can get to the mosque on time when you here the azan in your room. Rooms are large and comfortable, there is also a kitchenette if you want to heat up food or make your own coffee/tea. Bed is okay but probably need to change the mattresses soon.
There is Coffee Break in the building, serves very good food but a little bit expensive, the shawarma is certainly worth a try.
Plenty of restaurants nreaby, venture out a little bit you find many restaurants that serves very good food. Hadramawt is the restaurant we bought our Mandhy rice from, it's very delicious an certainly would recommend.

Room Tip: Get a room that faces the mosque

The hotel is so close to the Prophet's Mosque that it is a great walking experience for all.......I was in a Hajj group of about 70 people and everyone appreciated its proximity to Masjid un Nabawi. One cannot miss the 5 daily prayers at the mosque even if one wanted to! The rooms are clean and the beds are quite a sleeping extravaganza. There is a small kitchenette which helps to organize and keep the room clutter-free. The bathroom seemed a little small to me, very less space to move around. I liked the concept of a hidden clothesline to dry out your wet clothes inside the shower cabinet. Service (in terms of drinking water, coffee/tea, toiletries, clean bedsheets, extra pillow) was very good. There is a very good shopping mall inside the hotel, restaurants are up to the standard and Bin Daud (a one-stop shopping mall)being open 24 hrs helps a lot for last minute dates or luggage shopping. This was my second stay and I would come back again.

Room Tip: Rooms near the elevtaors help.

This is a good hotel, good location, nice hotel interior. Reception staff is helpful. Hotel will be full during peak season. Advance booking is required. I stayed here every year when I went to Saudi Arabia and I am fully satisfied with the hotel.

Beautiful hotel. Rooms are spacious. Small kitchenette. Bath room a little small. Rooms are clean and modern. A number of restaurants within the hotel with a wide variety of food available. Also lots of shopping available within the building. The best part is its proximity to the Prophet's Masjid. The hotel is right next to the courtyard, to the back of the masjid. All around the hotel there are many stores from jewelry, clothes, perfumes anything you would expect from Medina.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms with a view of the Prophet's Masjid

I stayed for 4 nights at the Movenpick hotel in October 2014 prior to performing my Hajj. The hotel is perfectly located just outside the Haram and was a safe, comfortable walk after returning in the early hours of the morning from the Rawdah. The rooms are clean, neat and well maintained. Staff are professional and fluent in English. Breakfast and dinner offered a wide spread, suitable for those on low-fat diets too. I would definitely stay at the hotel again given it's location, excellent food and service.
