I stayed here with family for 1 week in Feb 2012. Since the primary purpose of a visit to madinah is worship, we were looking for a clean, functional hotel that was suitably located and found this Hotel met those requirements perfectly.
The decor of the rooms was nice; with amenities including a safe and fridge. Housekeeping was excellent; the room and bathroom were cleaned well every day and supplies replenished.
Breakfast was included in the price (we paid £65/night) and was good for the price we paid. Juices were of the dilute variety and fruit was tinned, but fresh breads/condiments/tea/coffee provisions were ample. There was a variety of olives and fresh vegetables, boiled eggs, cheeses, as well as regional specialities such as foul(bean stew). Overall, the breakfast was of a good quality and value for money.
The hotel is behind the Anwar Al Madina Movenpick hotel; just a few minutes walk from gate 15. Turning right from the hotel, you would walk along and then cross two relatively quiet roads to get to the Masjid.
An earlier review does mention that the Reception staff are seldom able to speak english, but we found that they were happy to help if we could find someone to translate (a useful app on the iPhone or one of the restaurant/cleaning staff!)
-The water pressure in the shower is slightly low, if you're fussy about that sort of thing!
-The use of heating appliance is prohibited in Madinah hotels, so there were no tea making facilities; use room service (4x the price!) or one of the many stret vendors for tea.
-As in all hotels, laundry is v expensive, so walk a few minutes away for a local laundry service which provide a good service at a fraction of the price (just ask a local for directions)
- Taxi prices can be inflated if called through the hotel staff; it's cheaper to flag one down yourself on the road outside the Hotel.
Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel for its amenities and location; hope this review has helped.
