This is my third trip to raffles Makkah palace. My stay is as good as always with fresh fruit each morning and the butler service three times a day. This service, hospitality and class, no other hotel in Makkah can provide. You have to be there to experience the elegance and the class. The Bellboy Ezzelind spoke really good English...

We had the Kaaba view - without a doubt the view from the room is a life time memory that will be cherished for many years to come. The room was spacious with a lovely seating area and the little 'viewing area' with an armchair and footstool were great touches and indeed a wonderful place to just sit and look...

Best hotel to stay in Mecca. Friendly staff. Rooms are very spacious and comfortable. Good crowd not over crowded like other hotels. Worth every penny. Perhaps little pricy but still worth to stay and will definitely stay again.
