    Makkah's Abundant Hotel Ring Road.

    by

    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.

One of Makkah's Best Hotels

by katcoota about Makkah Sheraton

An excellent hotel close to the Haram. The hotel is on the quieter side of the Haram hence going back and forth is somewhat easier. It is also closer to Bab-As-salam (Gate 23).
The best rooms of the hotel overlook the Haram and are nice and clean.
The staff are very helpful and the buffet breakfast is excellent. Make sure you ask for your fresh orange juice and omelette. Very close to quiter, Marwa side of the Haram.
Excellent buffet breakfast.
Easy car access and parking.

"Makkah biggest Visual Record on the Web"

Makkah is the place which captures the hearts of a billion Moslems all over the globe. It is the place where God's will was revealed to Mohammed, (peace be upon him), and it is now the location of the Holy Mosque and the sacred Ka'abah. It is also the destination of millions of pilgrims and visitors and the holiest spot on earth.

God has honoured it in His Holy Book, in which it is given eleven different names, including: Makkah, Bakkah, AL-Balad AL-Aamin, AL-Balad AL-Ameen, AL-Haram AL-Aamin and Um-AL-Qura. God also refers to Makkah in several verses of the Holy Koran using other names, and has sworn on its name, thus giving it a unique status unrivalled by any other city in the world.

It was also the will of God that the Holy Ka'abah be situated in Makkah. This divine will has affected the building and growth of the city as it is today.

The first Sura of the Holy Koran was revealed to the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) on the outskirts of Makkah. These revelations to the Prophet continued later, and some verses of the Holy Koran are known as Makki, because they were revealed in Makkah whilst others were called Madani because they were revealed in Madinah.

It was in and around Makkah that the early Moslems launched their"Jihad" (Holy Struggle) against polytheism, heresy and idolatry. It was here that God gave victory to His Prophet and his fellow-believers when they triumphantly entered Makkah in the 8th year after Hijra (630 AD), ending the state of polytheism and exalting the name of Allah, the one and only God. The idols were destroyed, God's House was purified and Makkah became a secure and sacred city. Moslems all over the world turn their faces in prayer five times a day towards the Ka'abah in Makkah and begin and end their pilgrims with a "tawaf" (circumambulation) of it.

The tale of the building of Makkah, the Holy Mosque and the Ka'abah is well known, as are the events which took place in the city following the era of Abraham and Ishmael.
