Excellent 4* hotel but is still too far from haram

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 9 Aug 2011
The hotel was an excellent 4 star hotel with good staff. However the shuttle service was unreliable as sometimes you would need to wait for 20 minutes outside the hotel in the bus because the driver decided to take a break. The hotel is a 10-15 minute walk but it was sometimes too difficult to do that in 45C heat. Also it was a very busy time when we got to Makkah, i.e. Ramadhan, which meant road blocks and lots of traffic. Hence you could be waiting for the bus in the Haram underpass for 20-30 mins.
It's better to stay here in an off-peak time or during winter. Other than that a really nice stay.
