We stayed during Ramadhan. The hotel is about 10 minutes walking distance when it is not crowded. but when salah finishes and you walk back to the hotel it can take up to 20-25 minutes. It doesn't have the bestest of views, as it is next to a busy road but then again it is away from the busy area of around the Masjd alHaram. This hotel is supposed to be 4 star but we stayed on the second floor and we would rate it 3 star as the decor was quite dated, the carpets were worn and the beds needed replacing. The restaurant and buffet service was very good with a variety of choice and helpful staff at hand. The hotel shuttle service again is very good; it runs about every 8 minutes to and from the masjid. The bus is very clean and sits about 15-20 people and is air conditioned. In conclusion, we were dissapointed with the room and the location but being away from the busy area has its benefits and were pleased with the shuttle service. I would not recommend this hotel for families with children or the elderly, as it is quite a walk from the masjid and back especially in the Saudi heat

Reviewed 9 August 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.
