The hotel rooms and hallways smell very badly, elevators do not keep up with demand, breakfast is not good. No WIFI in rooms, and is not very good in lobby. It is very close to Masjid. I would not recommend it.

I booked my umrah with al hidayah for my family. I asked for 5* hotels in Makkah and Madina and was given this. It was horrible from the moment we entered. Decor, staff, food, rooms all get 0/5. The only thing it has going for it is location. This is an old hotel. The rooms are badly in need of...

This is an old hotel but they have a good staff. The hotel is very close to the Masjid Nabawi. There is a lot of souvenir store down outside the hotel. There are 3 elevator that very helpful to take you to your floor since it was crowd guest staying there.

Elaf taiba is always my good choice because it's much closer to masjid of prophet peace be upon him and it is also a budget hotel. Staff is good and cooperative. All the attractions are closer. Surrounding of this hotels there are many shops and restaurants. Hotel does provide decent food. Breakfast is usually included.

It's a nice place to stay, as it's very near to the Masjid al Nabawi. About 100 meters from the Masjid. Rooms are good. The service is good. Good for families with children and everyone in general. I would recommend to anyone and everyone.
