We decided to stay at this hotel after turning down the opportunity to stay inside one of the newer hotels located in the abomination of a develpment just outside Haram (tacky Big Ben thing!). It was just as well, as some of our other group members who did stay there complained about the noise and vibration levels due to the adjacent construction works. The al-Shohada was an excellent choice with good service end lovely rooms. Breatfast wasn't quite up to the standard of say the Hilton in Madinah but that's just a personal preference as my wife loved it. The only word of warning is that the shuttle service is a little erratic and actually takes longer to reach Haram than on foot. This isn't the hotel's fault but down to the Saudi's strange traffic planning strategy that involves travelling through the same mountain again and again to get somewhere that's only 5 minutes away by foot. Futhermore, they often tend to shut these routes on a whim so you may be left waiting a long time for a shuttle. Anyway, when in Makkah stay at the al-Shohada, you won't be dissappointed!
