Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Well where do I begin...
As a seasoned traveller and first time in Makkah on Umrah, I was bit apprehensive as to what I was to expect with the whole experience... As I had only booked the Flight and Hotel the night before most agents were saying I had to go with a group as the cost would be high... but I continued to book myself.. Flight Saudi Airlines ..saving by self booking... but had to shop around..
WELL WHAT A GEM OF A HOTEL...!!
As I say I was on a budget and my trip was for Ibadhaat... and not to prance about in a PLUSH hotel.. of which I have stayed at many times... but always prefer the smaller more family friendly hotels..
THE MASJID AL HARAM IS ABOUT 12-15 MINS WALKING STRAIGHT ROAD.. THERE IS A HILL TO CLIMB BUT BY THE SECOND DAY I WAS USED TO IT..
TAXIS WILL COST AROUND 2-3 RIYALS ONE WAY.. as most taxis head for the Haram Shareef anyway.. jump in with other people you will pay 2 riyal..

The Greeting by Mr Salim and Mohammed on reception was very warm and friendly.. and they spoke good English too. The hotel itself is marketed as 3 star but does not serve any food.. but all shops are on your doorstep including a great little eating place called Makkah restaurant which is located to the rear of the hotel via the Masjid and the African street traders.. 3-4 min walk. Ask Zain or Mustaffa (staff) and they will direct you.. by the way.. these lads were very helpful with anything..
Inside ticked all the boxes for my needs..
The room was perfect for me... clean comfortable tea/coffee facilities good shower, fridge and TV which had a direct link to the Masjid Al Haram and Kabaah..
The Location was unbeatable.. in the middle of shops that were fantastically good for shopping and prices you would appreciate after a bit of haggling... unlike the shopping centres prices for the same goods... !
Definitely recommend shops on the side of the hotel...
I spent most of my day at the Masjid.. except when I went to Medina for the day... the Taxi Drivers will take you but expect to pay around 450 Riyal one way.. if your coming back the same day like me... make sure you negotiate your return rate.. should be less than your outgoing...
Cost to Airport is approx 160-180 Riyal... I met a really good and polite taxi driver.. who I would recommend to anyone..
I was Humbled by my experience.. and the fact I went on my own meant I was not goaded or expected to commit to anything or anyone.. This was truly a great moment in my life ALHAMDULILLAH.. As it was completely unplanned.. just say I heard the call..!
Insha Allaah.. I look forward to returning with my family... and know where I am going to stay for sure..

Express check in, Room CLEAN but some extent small, Bathroom is OK, WIFI working full, Open on the main road to Almasjid Alharam, not near not far, NO bus shuttle, free public transportation available Front to hotel

According to the price is good option

تسجيل الدخول سريع جدا ، الغرفه نظيف لكن صغيره نوعا ما ، الحمام نظيف ومجهز ، الفندق يفتح في شارع ام القرى ، الطريق الرئيسي للحرم ، لا يوجد ترحيل للحرم ، لكن بصات النقل العام المجانيه امام الفندق مباشرة

مقارنة بالسعر الفندق ممتاز
