Mecca & Madina Hotels

by MeinHoonNa

I am planning on visitng Mecca for Umrah in March/April, inshallah, with some other family members. Can anyone advise me on hotels close to Al-Haram? Hotels that are clean and reasonably priced. I styed in the Mecca Hotel last time I visited a few years back. It was very close but not the cleanest of hotels and I believe it has now been demolished. If you recommend any clean, reasonably prices hotels in Medina, close to the mosque, that would be appreciated as well.

Thanks.

Re: Mecca & Madina Hotels

Hi,

I am also planning to visit Makkah & Madina in April inshallah with my wife and looking for a hotel around Harams.

Mel_H, I have been to this link before but it doesnt tell about any specific hotels. There is one hotel contact, I called at that number probably it is mobile and the man on other side was only able to speak Arabic. After trying for few minutes I was not succesful in communicating with him. I was wondering is there any way to know some nice 3 star hotel name and price range for March April months as these months are not very busy. Is it possible to book these hotels before arrival or it will be best to book on arrival? I can get online booking for 5 star hotels but these are quite expensive around 600 to 1000 SAR per room.

Thanks a lot for the help.

I have come across this link and it is an amazing website.

http://www.makkahgis.net/#

All pink colour spots around Al-Haram are hotels. Just click on the pink spot and pop up window will open containing hotel name and information. It is very helpful as you can also guess hotel distance from Al-Haram.

Only problem is that it is very difficult to get hotel information by phone due to language barrier.

Here is a link for list of hotels in Mecca and Madina (different budgets and a discription such as facilities and distance from Holy Haram)

Travel Tips for Mecca

Umm Al-Joud Kiswa Factory

by imran8852

Visit The 'Kiswa' (The Drape Of The Kaabah) Factory If You Have The Opportunity To Do So. Here You Will Have The Privilege To Witness How The Beautiful 'Kiswa' Was Made. The 'Kiswa' is pure silk and the beautiful calligraphy of the Holy Quran was embroidered from gold thread. No Words Are Adequate Enough To Describe My Feeling About The Fondest Memories Of Mecca.

Check point

by marimar_72

This is a picture of the check point at the Makkah Gate,,after the non-muslims exit,to ensure that all non muslims have exited the higway leading to Makkah.
If you are a muslim make sure you have all your identity papers(passport,ID).
The Monument represent our holy book,,The Noble Quran.

Camel Farm

by imran8852

Hudaibiyah Or Now Known As Al - Syumaisi Is One Of The 'Miqat' For Umrah. If You Are Here, Don't Forget To Visit The Camel Farm To Taste Or Buy The Super Delicious Camel's Milk! This Is One Place Worth Visiting.
An Important Event In Islamic History Happened Here A Long Time Ago During The 'Rise Of Islam' Called 'The Treaty Of Hudaibiyah'. For More Information, Visit http://www.islaam.com or http://www.islamicnetwork.com

Masjid - Al Haram

by Pakistaniguy

I have no words to explain you my feelings when i was standing there. It was magical. Simply unexplainable. I'll just tell you anything from my experience that i have visited lots and lots of cities and countries but there is nothing in this world which can be even slightly equvilent of Al-Haram in Makkah. If you are a Muslim then u are allowed to visit the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah. Please leave everything and come here first ! this is my heartly request to you all. Even if you are plunged in your private business of personal life, just leave everything as it is and visit Al-Haram, beleive in Allah everything will be okay and you'll never regret your decision.

Visit the largest religious area in the world!

by Muarrij

This is by far the largest mosque in the world and as far as I know the largest religious place of worship.

There are approximately 2.5 million muslims in the days of Hajj alone who go and visit the holy site.
Apart from the obvious prayers and rituals. It would take you a good few days just to go around the whole structure and admire the intrciate and beautiful Mosque. The whole place is adorned in expensive marble, shipped in from Italy, Spain, Greece etc. There are many carvings, designs and Calligraphy to be found all around the mosque area.
Makkah has the worlds largest Air conditioning system as well as the largest P.A amplifier system.
Note the impressive architecture of the gate and minarets. There are well over 50 entrances to the Kaabah Mosque. About 7 are grand entrances like in the picture.
