Le Meridien Medina
Ranked #89 of 154 Hotels in Medina
Reviewed 9 June 2017

This hotel standard is as close as you will probably get to Medina Mosque area if you are not a Muslim. My visit for four nights was during Ramadan which explains why all the restaurants were shut and breakfast was presented on a tray in your bedroom. The hotel is large but a bit dated. The entrance is impressive s is the lounge. The reception is at a low down table which is strange as you have to sit on a low seat which would cause difficulties for the less able traveler. The staff were business like but that could have been because of the language barrier.
There is free and effective wifi.
My room on the third floor was spacious with a large double bed and also a settee fold out bed. Every thing worked and was clean albeit starting to age. The view looked down to the roof off the canopy over the entrance. I did suffer from lots of insect bites which I blame on mosquitos which was strange as i never opened a window. I was savaged so be careful in this regard. I did feel the hotel felt like a haunted house as i rarely saw anyone, it was early quiet and whilst all the tables were set as if for dinner, i never saw them used- as I say, maybe because of fasting. It really did need a coffee lounge as I find myself effectively spending all day in my room with a TV having limited channels.

so overall- if you are a non muslim and you need somewhere to stay then this is probably it but be prepared for thirsty mosquitos and the kettle in your room.

Very bad service. They didn't provide the menu inside the room so my flying partner and I which is my roomie asked for a menu a couple of times like 6th times and gave it after an hour (we're starving) Electricity would always turned off five times a day or more than that. Loud noises coming from the other rooms (hammering and fixing something) called them and they said they can't do something about it. Like what???

A beautiful hotel with lovely well serviced rooms. Breakfast is excellent and a great deal of choice. As a Western business woman the restrictions irk somewhat however Reception staff are helpful.
Don't expect the restaurant to provide an evening meal, if you push it you may end up wishing you hadn't pushed for them. We had some dodgy prawns and spent the next day speaking to a nominated deity on the big white telephone.
My room was lovely and well appointed which was a good thing as there is no way a woman is allowed out to explore or eat out.

BEST EXPERIENCE EVER. We were in Elaf Hotel, really close to the Mosque of the Prophet (saw). So we could pray there whenever we wanted. People are amazing, and there are lots of shops and services ! It's a really peaceful city !
May we go back there In sha Allah

This was just a nice clean, friendly hotel. Nothing special, nothing bad. I have stayed at another hotel in Medina that makes this one seem like a palace. The only issues I had was the room key had to be recoded every night. I will definitely return to this hotel..

Room Tip: Book your airport pickup through the hotel.
