i stayed in durratul andulas ..we payed 350 rys for 4/5 beds last year..roome size not dat brilliant and the washroom is very small
...i got a better deal dis yr in rawda suites .400 riyals for 2 rms of 2 beds
salaam. @snisar where did you get that price from for al mubarak al massy?? i remember seeing it last year its not very far from the masjid! last year i stayed at elaf taiba..which is right near it. @Madinah i have been hearing alot of good things about rawda suites..they also look very nice suite!! is this the price you got this year during ramadhan or before??
I have stayed at Mubarak Massy, it is a very decent hotel, not too over the top but not dirty either. It isn't far too, but i think it would be useful to highlight it isn't actually THAT close either if you're a male. This is because once you actually enter the vicinity of the Haram, you're right at the back of the Mosque and have to walk all the way up to get to the front where the Imam leads Salaah and where Rasulullah (saw) is buried.
I am more concerned about the ladies in my family, so if it's a bit further for us males I'm sure it'll be fine :-) Is it correct ladies cannot go to do salaam from the right hand side of Masjid and would have to the use the entrances on the left handside ?
The price is from a Pakistani friend I met last year in Madinah Munwarah, so hopefully quite competitive.
