What people like mostly while staying in holly Makkah is the location of the place. That is good with this hotel. The rest is all very ordinary except the breakfast. They have an excellent breakfast buffet. If the security guards from the mall entrance stop you each time you pass them and behave with you rude and arrogant, take it...

Alhamdoullilah very happy of the service, but no free wifi compared to lower standard hotel. Easy and quick access to Haram. A little bit difficult to get access to lower price fast food...and no king size beb in city view room....

It Is A Good Hotel, Booked This Same Hotel 3 Times, I Do Not Think They Have Facilities For Disabled Much, Plus The Net Is Very Expensive And For Masjid Al.Haram View Is Also Very Expensive. I Have To Book The Nearest Hotel Due To My Illness And Disability, It Is Close To Kabbah Shareef.

Very clean and decent hotel. Very close to Haram and shopping centers. You need to know which elevator you wanna use otherwise you gonna keep changing elevators and lose your way. The restaurant is far from the elevator( the Ruwad)
