“Loved the hotel and loved the location”
Reviewed August 24, 2011

The hotel is next to the haram and takes about 3-4 minutes walk from the hotel door to the entrance of Masjid An Nabawi. It is away from the busy market and shopping centres which is a plus point at peak times as you do not need to fight thorugh the crowds to get into the hotel. Although the restaurants are about 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel.
We stayed on the 12th floor and had a view of the masjid from our window.

The room ws very clean and we were very pleased with the cleanliness, furniture and decor. The bathroom was new and spotless. The room had a very handy fridge and a safe both which were complimentary. There are about 12 lifts in total and at peak times after the adhan it is advisable to get to the lifts ASAP as it gets very busy.
The restaurant was clean and the buffet was really nice with a wide variety. The staff in the restaurant were really helpful but cannot say much for the reception staff. The hotel does really try and give a 4* star feeling with the service and rooms and we think they have achieved that.

+ves:
a) Location, location and location. Just 5 min walks from Masjid-e-Nabwi
b) Internet in lobby only, medium to poor connectivity
c) cleanliness was OK
d) 4~6 elevators, ease of availability

-ves
a) Service, most of the staff doesn't know a word of English
b) Hospitality was poor, some times had to wait for 8~10 min just to be heard.
c) Young locals are recruited for reception, who are very difficult to communicate with, if you don't know arabic
d) Tea / breakfast menu needs some major revamp
e) Not many eating places around, only one pakistani restaurant at 50 ft distance.

Room Tip: Try elaf al taiba

Nice hotel, 2 mins from masjid nabwi, but no restaurants or fastfood nearby. Some staff are rude and do not cater for room service properly, and also would not acccept their mistakes and apologise. Wifi onky available in lobby and later on this was switched off too. Continental breakfast was good.

Decent location - 5 min walk to masjid. Beds the $50 at the market variety with broken springs, rooms clean but smokey and pull back the bed frame to find weeks of tissues etc. Electrical outlet exploded into pieces, on a plus - ac cold in entire hotel - breakfast yuck - poor selection and quality. Try another 4 star or go 5 - Saudi has low. Standards and it's only another $100-200 to move up a grade most times.
