                    The hotel location, Room decor, Buffet break fast is great and the honest advertising, You get what you see online.

                    Transportation, I had booked an airport pick up, Due to late arrival the hotel driver had to wait for 3 hours before he chose to go back to the hotel without us. He tried calling me on my cell but unfortunately it was switched off. I tried to reason with the Hotel manager about the charges after that, But I ended up paying for the whole airport pick up, Since it was arranged by a third party not the hotel. I think the hotel should have mentioned that so I could have arranged my own drop off to the airport. So basically bad thing about the hotel is ( they don't have their own transport )

                    Everything was very good.

                    We didn't like the combination of both toilet and shower area in the same room. They should be separated like other rooms.

                    The hotel location is optimum being very close to the holy mosque. This hotel is the best one I have ever stayed in Mecca. The hotel staffs were extremely courteous, friendly and helpful. The service was excellent and prompt. When we had a leaking water closet they immediately sent a technician who repaired it. They attended to all of our needs and requests in a timely manner. The rooms were very clean, spacious and comfortable. We definitely enjoyed the private butler service and free fruit plate, coffee & tea. The breakfast buffet was excellent with a large food variety. It is also a great advantage for the hotel being located on top one of the largest shopping centers in Mecca with a huge variety of shops and restaurants.

                    There is still some considerable construction work in the main street level entrance to the hotel. The good thing you only need to access the hotel once when you arrive and once when you leave. You have to use the elevators to access the hotel and to leave to the holy mosque. No problems once you are inside the hotel though. Many of the large and efficient elevators in the complex (shopping center & hotel towers) were not operational which makes it difficult to move around the area. The food in the main hotel restaurants was very expensive.

                    Extremely comfortable stay and the staff were quite professional and hospitable. I would recommend it to honeymooners who wish to begin their life with a blessed stay overlooking the Holy Haram. Their breakfast is splendid.
