Elaf taiba is always my good choice because it's much closer to masjid of prophet peace be upon him and it is also a budget hotel. Staff is good and cooperative. All the attractions are closer. Surrounding of this hotels there are many shops and restaurants. Hotel does provide decent food. Breakfast is usually included.

It's a nice place to stay, as it's very near to the Masjid al Nabawi. About 100 meters from the Masjid. Rooms are good. The service is good. Good for families with children and everyone in general. I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

I visited this hotel in Ramadan 2016. The hotel is located very close to the mosque. It is especially near the ladies entrance. The room was large and comfortable and the bathroom facilities were basic.

Since it was 2 am , we adjusted and slept. The next day I had to argue my case and they added one mattress reluctantly,which was put on the floor. Since we... More

I booked this hotel based on its amazing location, It was the only available hotel with walking distance to almasjid alharam. Unfortunately, this hotel was shockingly filthy which made me wish I didn't have to book it. If you have to book it, I strongly recommend bringing your own towels and sheets. Breakfast buffet is not worth the extra charge,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with an Umrah group. The hotel is very rundown and the rooms are not clean. The bathrooms are the worst part. The sink was stained yellow. The shower curtain was moldy and stained. The drain on the floor had a horrible smell coming from it. The other families in our group had similar problems... More
