Other than the room interiors being very old and dingy the hotel is acceptable on all other counts such as proximity to the masjid al nabawi, housekeeping, courteous staff, but surely the interiors need to be overhauled. Stayed there for a week and had a very pleasant stay. In sha ALLAH would not mind staying here again. Free wi fi...

This is a great simple hotel. Right outside of the Haram. The rooms were spacious and bathroom decent. Only thing to note is that the elevators get jammed sometimes because of everyone trying to get to the Haram at once, so leave before the Adhan so you're not stuck waiting or taking the stairs.

Elaf Taiba Hotel is location wise nice and economical hotel in Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is located at the corner of Gate of Musjid-e-Nabwi. People can walk easily to mosque for prayer after Azan. Restaurants and shopping is easily approachable.

This hotel is not that pricey...very near (100 metres) to the mosque and shopping area. Wifi is only available at certain spot of the lobby..none in the room. I think the hotel is fully occupied and the lobby is very crowded....I would recommend the hotel for its location only...

The best thing about the hotel is the location. It's really convenient because it's almost inside the compound of the prophet's mosque. You not only hear call to prayers, you can follow the prayers from the comfort of your room if for any reason you are not able to make it to the mosque. The staffs were helpful and professional....
