Elaf taiba hotel gets full marks for its location. Located so close to to Masjid e Nabvi that a woman can leave at 2 am all by herself to offer midnight prayer at the mosque. The women's entrance to mosque is just a few minutes walk. We got a room with view of the Prophets tomb. The hotel is clean....

Elaf Taiba Hotel is location wise nice and economical hotel in Medina, Saudi Arabia. It is located at the corner of Gate of Musjid-e-Nabwi. People can walk easily to mosque for prayer after Azan. Restaurants and shopping is easily approachable.

This hotel is not that pricey...very near (100 metres) to the mosque and shopping area. Wifi is only available at certain spot of the lobby..none in the room. I think the hotel is fully occupied and the lobby is very crowded....I would recommend the hotel for its location only...

The best thing about the hotel is the location. It's really convenient because it's almost inside the compound of the prophet's mosque. You not only hear call to prayers, you can follow the prayers from the comfort of your room if for any reason you are not able to make it to the mosque. The staffs were helpful and professional....

This hotel deserved one star because of its location to the Masjid. The hotel was filthy, disgusting, and smelled worse than a barn. When we got into our hotel room there were dirty q-tips on the ground, the drawers smelled horrendous when you opened it, and everything seemed sticky. The hallway leading up to the room (Third floor) smelled like...

Stayed here several nights recently and have stayed here previously a couple of times but that was about ten years ago. Location is very good in terms of entering masjid nabi saw but the hotel is in urgent need of renovation. The free wifi in the lobby is extremely slow and really needs to be upgraded.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 days and was really appalled at the condition of the room , Every time you flush the bathroom would flood with water and the response was that it was not sewage and they did not fix it. The bathroom looks dark and moldy in place , hot water was available in spurts. They...
