Sheraton Makkah Hotel and Towers
Makkah's Abundant Hotel Ring Road.
You will find hundreds of hotels in Makkah, after all the 2 million or more pilgrims during Hajj time need to stay somewhere!?
The Hotel I stayed in within Makkah was pretty decent, Considering. The best thing about it was , it was so close to the Haram. Literally 10 minutes walk.
However bear in mind that a normal 10 minute walk to the haram in normal off peak times can turn out to be a 30 minutes walk during peak time, due to the large amounts of people at that time.
Unique Quality: Most hotels on the inner ring are expensive, especially near the primary gates along the extension.
However you can get some reasonable priced places with all the amenities that you require.
Usally most 3 star hotels will have ensuite, a shared kitchen, AC, Lifts, TV, fridge etc.
Just make sure that your hotel is conveniently located.
This hotel was on the main underpass road and the Harem (Qiblah) was very easy to reach.
Most smaller hotels have a very friendly atmosphere as compared to larger hotels.
Most hotels will add more beds per room to accomodate the huge amount of pilgrims during the Hajj period.
This is one of the largest complexes I have seen in Makkah,,it has studios for rent and small fully furnished apartments.
many retail shops are within the complex and also many restaurants.
