The hotel rooms and hallways smell very badly, elevators do not keep up with demand, breakfast is not good. No WIFI in rooms, and is not very good in lobby. It is very close to Masjid. I would not recommend it.

This is an old hotel but they have a good staff. The hotel is very close to the Masjid Nabawi. There is a lot of souvenir store down outside the hotel. There are 3 elevator that very helpful to take you to your floor since it was crowd guest staying there.
