Al Safwah is one of a few hotels with a view of the Haram, and the Kabaah. What makes Al Safwah different is that its slightly cheaper than it's neighbours but still a great hotel. The rooms were big and spacious and the bathroom modern although I personally hate shower curtains and prefer glass shower doors. The other downside is...

Stayed in this hotel for my umrah. Located at Safwa Tower above the mall and food court, so convenient for meal and shopping. Fronting King Fahd Gate @ Haram. Easy access to Haram and other areas nearby. Cons: - Difficult for taxi to reach the hotel as the nearest road to the hotel has very restricted access and closed most...

I stayed at this hotel for a week for my Umrah trip and I'm so grateful to have stayed there. It is very near to the haram with one of the exits directing you straight to the haram. Its very convenient for when you need to get to the Haram quick (at a certain time before a certain prayer the...

Not very clean as you can see the dust on the hallways carpets. can see Kaaba from the side room windows. restaurant was big but smells fried eggs. Haram can be reached by a walking distance. barbers are close as well. I personally didn't like the room structure and TV location, I also didn't like the bath structure and the...

I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in December 2014.Its a very very short walk to Al Haram just about 2 minutes. The hotel has a very convenient Musalla that you can pray inside the hotel with the Imam of Al-Masjid Al-Haram. The breakfast buffet was wonderful. Check-in process was very slow and Housekeeping is poor. This hotel seriously...

The room was clean, furniture was good and area was reasonable. Location is fantastic, and service was good too. Breakfast was very good. On the other side, reception was always busy and a bit slow. There is no free parking anymore but I do not recommend driving in Makkah anyway. Overall, very good value.

My husband and I had the blessed opportunity to stop by Makkah and perform our Umrah on our way to Europe last June 2013 (which means this is a late review - sorry! This review will also be about the overall Umrah trip. Skip to the third paragraph for just the hotel review). It was my first time planning an...

I stayed at this hotel in April 2014 during my umrah. The hotel was beautiful, right across from the masjid al haram, location could not be better! The hotel itself had a huge mall within it, including a food court. It is also literally right next to al bait mall, which is a fairly high end mall with great shops...
