The room was not that much cozy, the mattress were reaking with smell. The carpets were extremely dirty. My son was asthmatic and now he is in Hospital after the trip. Me and my wife also got severe allergies. Breakfast buffet was extremely limited and lunch buffet had only rice as a main dish. No Laundry in such a big hotel. I mean extremely pathetic hotel. They are minting money in a holy city. Pathetic management. I wonder are they really muslims? Sucking money that's it ???

The hotel is clean and the interior is very good. The hotel claims to be a 4-star hotel, which I don't agree with after seeing their terrible internet and worse transportation from the haram to hotel.|They provide coffee, water, teabags, and sugar but not the salt and black pepper. Daily cleaning can be done but for that you have to ask the staff. Overall, staff is cooperative except for people at the front desk. |I proffered this hotel over at Maidan Hotel, which is just a little far, but for sure, I would try maiden next time.
