Positive Reviews

Great location

Guests are consistently impressed by the location of this hotel. Indeed, reviews indicate it is a clear highlight of the property. Guests appreciate being able to walk to shops and other amenities, not forgetting the hotel’s proximity to so many wonderful sightseeing spots.

Enjoyable dining

The hotel’s two restaurants attract a wide variety of positive comments from guests, with many particularly impressed by the quality and variety of food served for the breakfast buffet. Meals here do cost extra but feedback from guests suggests that the meals are reasonably priced and well worth the additional expense.

Negative Reviews

Room quality varies

According to guest reviews, the room quality here can vary a fair bit. Those guests who were less impressed complain of poorly maintained rooms that lack the opulence noted in other areas of the hotel. Perhaps unsurprisingly, guests recommend requesting a room with a view of the Kaaba.

Service can disappoint

Feedback about the service is a little mixed. While it seems that most of the staff is friendly, the actual standard of service can let the property down a little. Check-in can take a while, possibly because of the reception staff’s poor command of English, with guests also noting that room service can be subject to unnecessarily long delays.

Too many lifts

While lifts are a handy amenity when getting luggage to and from a room, guests find the lifts at this hotel rather frustrating. The biggest drawback seems to be that guests need to take up to four trips in different lifts to get where they need to be. Furthermore, the lifts are busy so delays are likely.
