    madina hotel reviews

    salaams,

    please state honest reviews of any hotels you have stayed at in madina whilst on umrah, as during hajj due to the sheer amount of hujjajs, you will rarely get top service,

    again, it doesnt matter if its 2* or 7*

    service
    cleanness
    distance etc

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    After staying in a Makkah 5 star (Darul Ghufraan), we moved to Dyar International in Madinah. The hotel is located next to the Madinah Hilton and is just behind Taiba Residential hotel and Shopping complex, therefore on the second row of hotels. It is in a very convenient location for getting to Masjid Nabawi and shopping/eating. Lifts I'm afraid wernt very good, we were on the top floor (14th) the amount of times it reached the top full of people wanting to go down was amazing!

    It is classed as 5 star, but as I'm sure those who have been to Saudi know that at best that may possibly be a very good UK 3 star or just about 4 star.

    We had been provided breakfast and dinner, breakfast was ok although as the hotel had a big delegation of Turkish backgrounds it was mainly catered for them. That was the same for dinner too, although I actually enjoyed it and the deserts we varied and nice.

    The hotel staff were ok, although some of our group had some attitude from the cleaning staff when they didn't tip. The rooms again were on the small size, we had a 3 bed room, we were told that the bigger Turkish group got the big rooms.

    Overall I liked the hotel, my kids could watch a few cartoons and I could watch the football as they had a few decent channels on the TV. Also we checked out late and they didnt seem to care which was a bonus!

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    I dont know the ratings from memory but this is my feedback:

    Dar alHijra Intercontinental Hotel
    - Situated behind Madinah Hilton.
    - Can see Masjidun Nabawi whilst stood at the entrance, then two crossings over is the main gate entrance.
    - quicker for men to enter, women have a 1 min extra walk
    - couldnt be more than 5 min walk (cus walk straight down, especially if young)
    - quality of the hotel is very good
    - rooms are nice too, not extravagantly decorated or anything but still good.
    - full ensuite shower facilities.
    - we had an adjoining room which made it even better.
    - cleanliness was good too, no complaints.
    - staff were helpful
    - reception area has seating area with sofas, and also business centre with internet access.
    - 3 lifts (as far as i can remember)
    - would recommend.

    Al Haram Hotel

    - very very good hotel
    - a couple of mins away from Masjidun Nabawi, need to cross over a small road.
    - easier access to the women's entrance, and this is the best entrance for ziyaarah of Rasoolullah
    - hotel staff were very nice and helpful in every way, this was helped by the great quantity of workers (who speak english too)
    - access to hotel from two entrances, on either side of building.
    - there are a few shops on the ground floor.
    - large seating area in the receptions.
    - Tea Garden: really nice area with lots of sofa seating areas. Can buy hot drinks, desserts etc from here (through room service too)
    - Rooms were very beautiful and comfortable.
    - full ensuite shower with telephone and hairdryer (plus all shampoos/gels etc replaced continously)
    - room service is very fast and convenient
    - around 4/5 lifts for ease of use.
    - cleanliness standard was good also, only thing the number of rooms on each floor means the housekeeping service isnt so good and needs constant reminder to staff
    - would definitely recommend

    alHarithya Hotel
    - behind Madinah Movenpick
    - in the second row of hotels
    - need to cross only one small road, takes a couple of mins
    - closest entrance to both men/womens sides
    - however, its a longer walk to the women's entrance for ziyaraah of Rasoolullah
    - best thing about this hotel: it has a pizza bar/restaurant downstairs which does the best pizzas also has a hot drinks/ desserts area with BaskinRobbins ice-cream!
    - room service is good
    - full ensuite shower-rooms with large adjoining rooms (if applicable)
    - housekeeping is very very proficient and staff are really nice
    - cleanliness is very good.
    - 6 lifts.
    - 2 entrances on either side of building.
    - large reception with seating areas
    - would definitely recommend this too

    This is one of the two Dyar Hotels in Madina. Rated 4 star. The other one is Royal Dyar and is located behind Dar Eeman intercont. Rated 4 Star A although hoteliers trying to push it as 5 star.

    Al Amal Tower belongs to a chain of hotels owned by Amal group. All Amal hotels are graded 3 star and some are 3 star A.

    Dar Hijra saw its better days when it used to be a 5 Star. It is, at best a 4 Star.

    Likewise, Al Haram Towers. More closer to the Masjid. 4 Star.

    Al Harithiya. Ex Sheraton and 5 star when it was a sheraton label. At best a glorified 4 Star although I would not rate it beyond a good 3 Star.

    Here is their link,

    They are def calling themselves 5 star according to their labeling.

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    So, the UK agents who than echo such labelling can be excused? I don't think so. The hotels, when contracted, is available for inspection and can be clearly assessed as to their claimed rating and then reference made to the ministries grading system.

    I have the link that you produce here and, whilst no effort had been spared to show the hotels in its most glorified state things are not clearly what they are with both hotels and, likewise, for others too.

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    Royal Dyar Madinah
    Please note that it is different to Dyar International although both hotels are owned by the same group, both are rated as 5* by the group and are near to each other (one behind and other on side of madina hilton). This hotel has been reviewed previously on this forum and here is the link

    http://dyarhotels.com/international/index.html

    We (a family of two adults and one six years old child) stayed in Royal Dyar for 7 nights between 10-17th April 2011.
    Hotel is an excellent 4* hotel although claimed as 5*.
    Room size is good with LCD TV, mini bar/fridge, sufficient wardrobes cupboards (that had one electronic and one manual locker for your safe keepings).
    Full ensuite shower/bath with telephone and hairdryer (plus all shampoos/gels/lotion etc replaced continuously). Air conditioning was good throughout the hotel.
    It is literally 4-5 minutes walk from gate 21 (Bab Fahad) of Masjid-i-Nabwi on Fahad road after Hilton. you could even join the Jamat after you had heard Azzan in your room.
    It is near to the food square described by brother ismail in his previous posts for pakistani resturants and especially Bafaqi ( I didn't like their food but preferred alnoor instead. My fist first choice is Indonesian restaurant on the fist floor of Ilyas centre).
    The breakfast was very good with a wide variety of food including Omelet and fresh fruits available everyday. Very good house services.
    There are 12 medium size but really fast lifts available. We were on 3rd floor and never experienced any inconvenience in getting a lift.
    The good thing is the staff can speak/understand English that was a relief after staying in Saraya al imman in Makkah.
    3 entrances on three side of the hotel. good seating area on the first floor where reception is and more seating area around the lifts on ground floor.There is a pharmacy, a gift ship and a shop that sells dates on the ground floor.
    Hotel is very close to the shopping areas and an Indonesian restaurant located in Ilyas centre 9first floor) that is next to alferozya hotel and behind dyar international. I prefer this restaurant over food square as you can sit inside in peaceful clean seating and food is really nice too.
    I would definitely recommend this hotel although women have to travel a bit more to access women pray areas on either sides in the Masjid-i- nabwi. However if you want to be conveniently located near bab al salam (Gate 1) try hotels on north west side. Major construction work is in progress on north and north-western side at the moment.
    Quick check in and check out. (I forgot to mention that I had to wait one hour for check in at 5.30 p.m because the rooms were not ready due to late check out and was checked in after Maghrib Salat).
    The hotel rate was 600-700 SAR per night these days for a double room. it was 900 SAR the previous week.

    Dyar International and Royal Dyar has changed hands and are now known as

    Rawdah Royal Inn and Nozul Royal Inn Hotels.

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    The Dar Al Iman Intercontinental is an excellent hotel. The rooms are a bit dated but location wise you can't really get better as it is on the doorstep of the haram. The food at the hotel is also excellent and I would highly recommend it.

    Madina al Anwar movepick

    oh God, it's crap, run down. Showers are mouldy so when checking in, first check your room before you start unpacking in case you need to request room change.

    I wouldn't class it a 5*. We choose to stay there year because it's the cheapest 5* located close to the haramain.

    Yes, my family have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. Positive feedback, close to the haraam only rush hour during salah ( its located next to the cheapy (but nice) food shops.

    The decor of the rooms could do with an upgrade but the service etc was good.

    Btw have a look at trip advisor re this hotel.

    Dar ul Iman intercontinental
    Stayed here with my family in December 2015. In our suite we had a little kitchenette and 2 bathrooms. The kitchenette was handy with kids. In terms of location, when u r out of the hotel, you are in the courtyard of the mosque. It is that close. . The furniture was worn out and the bathrooms do need refurbishment. My rating is 8/10 for this hotel.

    Sofara al huda
    Stayed here in 2012 with our hajj group. It’s a 4 star hotel, but in KSA a 4 star is more like a 3 star, however in my opinion this is not the case with this particular hotel.
    Location is very good. Again you will use Bab e usman to enter haram which was very convenient for me. The hotel was clean and breakfast and dinner was good. My rating is 9.5/10.

    Hilton Hotel
    Stayed here in May 2011 with our umrah group. Excellent hotel and location. Especially for ladies, the gate to visit Roza Mubark was right in front. My husband preferred Dar ul Iman IC , but my vote is for Hilton due to its closeness to Bab e Usman.
    InshaAllah if I visit again, I will go for this hotel. 10/10

    Would anyone recommend Al Eiman Taibah or is it also called Al Eiman Qibla for family with kids?

    Re: madina hotel reviews

    Something to bear in mind with hotels in both Madinah and Makkah is that the level of service during Ramadan and Hajj time varies compared with other times of the year due to hotels being at full capacity during these periods.

    As such, sometimes extremely positive experience during an Umrah visit may be completely different to someone who visited at Hajj time and vice versa.

    assalaamu alaikum, any experience of al-shohada hotel ?
    وَاقْصِدْ فِي مَشْيِكَ وَاغْضُضْ مِن صَوْتِكَ ۚ إِنَّ أَنكَرَ الْأَصْوَاتِ لَصَوْتُ الْحَمِيرِ - 31:19

    And be moderate in your pace and lower your voice; indeed, the most disagreeable of sounds is the voice of donkeys."


    أَلَمْ تَرَوْا أَنَّ اللَّهَ سَخَّرَ لَكُم مَّا فِي السَّمَاوَاتِ وَمَا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَأَسْبَغَ عَلَيْكُمْ نِعَمَهُ ظَاهِرَةً وَبَاطِنَةً ۗ وَمِنَ النَّاسِ مَن يُجَادِلُ فِي اللَّهِ بِغَيْرِ عِلْمٍ وَلَا هُدًى وَلَا كِتَابٍ مُّنِيرٍ - 31:20

    Do you not see that Allah has made subject to you whatever is in the heavens and whatever is in the earth and amply bestowed upon you His favors, [both] apparent and unapparent? But of the people is he who disputes about Allah without knowledge or guidance or an enlightening Book [from Him].
