I booked my umrah with al hidayah for my family. I asked for 5* hotels in Makkah and Madina and was given this. It was horrible from the moment we entered. Decor, staff, food, rooms all get 0/5. The only thing it has going for it is location. This is an old hotel. The rooms are badly in need of...

This is an old hotel but they have a good staff. The hotel is very close to the Masjid Nabawi. There is a lot of souvenir store down outside the hotel. There are 3 elevator that very helpful to take you to your floor since it was crowd guest staying there.

Elaf taiba is always my good choice because it's much closer to masjid of prophet peace be upon him and it is also a budget hotel. Staff is good and cooperative. All the attractions are closer. Surrounding of this hotels there are many shops and restaurants. Hotel does provide decent food. Breakfast is usually included.

It's a nice place to stay, as it's very near to the Masjid al Nabawi. About 100 meters from the Masjid. Rooms are good. The service is good. Good for families with children and everyone in general. I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

I visited this hotel in Ramadan 2016. The hotel is located very close to the mosque. It is especially near the ladies entrance. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom facilities were basic.

We had booked this hotel on the understanding that our room would accommodate my family of four adults and two children. The room shockingly had only four beds. Since it was 2 am , we adjusted and slept. The next day I had to argue my case and they added one mattress reluctantly,which was put on the floor. Since we...

I booked this hotel based on its amazing location, It was the only available hotel with walking distance to almasjid alharam. Unfortunately, this hotel was shockingly filthy which made me wish I didn't have to book it. If you have to book it, I strongly recommend bringing your own towels and sheets. Breakfast buffet is not worth the extra charge,...
