The hotel is situated at the edge of Masjid Nabawi’s compound. There are a few shops from basement to the 2nd floor. There is a supermarket, Bin Dawood, located in the basement – they have plenty of stuff, inclusive luggage, clothes, electrical items etc, apart from the normal food and drink items.
The lobby is a bit odd – from the lobby, you need to get on the escalator to go to mezzanine floor to access the lifts to the room. If you exit the lifts on the ground floor, it is not located directly in the lobby, but you need to go around the shopping area to get to the lobby. There are 2 blocks, I was staying in the right block.
The room is well equipped, nice and comfortable. There is even a small kitchenette with basin, and plus the normal amenities such as fridge, multi channels TV, safe etc.
As per our travel agent’s arrangement, our package includes all meals. So I can’t comment really much on the breakfast, lunch and dinner since I think the menu that we had are different from those served to normal guests. But I can say that the food served were delicious, plenty of variety and with generous portion.
The location of the hotel also was easily accessible to the ladies entrance of the mosque, so that is another big advantage, especially if there are females going to the mosque with you. The locality also appeals to many since there are plenty of shops around the area, some malls, many restaurants etc which means that these places can be reached on foot easily.
The only problem that I can see is that the road in front of the hotel is quite congested, so arriving or departing during peak hours can be quite a hassle.
Apart from that, I don’t mind staying at this hotel again on my next trip.
