Two bedrooms suite was fabulous however, the living room area was little bit small . The staff was amazing and every thing was wonderful! Specially Al-Kabba view. You can see Al-Kabba directly from your suite. Thanks

It was exceptional trip. The location is superb!! The staff are professional. The breakfast was elegant. The parking was surfed by them. The only negative issue was reaching the hotel in the beginning! There was no clear sings where to go, a lot of tunnels in Makkah near AlHaramm.
