Traveled as a couple
Not to mention the view from the room if you take the one that has the view to the mosque. Breath taking view, more than every words can say, it's like in the postcards especially at night when the light spoiling your eyes... the direction of the Muslim pray is just right there outside of your hotel window. Take the highest floor possible, then the view of the mosque even get better with Mecca city and all the hill surrounds it as background.
When you are looking for something to eat, the mall on the ground level has a food court with endless choice of food from all around the world. Not to mention the food counters like KFC near the mosque which also close by. The mall also has stores with international brands where you can get your things or want to buy something to bring home. When you are looking for stuffs like praying mattress, abaya, or just key rings, you can find it on the basement level of the hotel. The price is considering cheap especially if you could do some bargain.
The room is equipped with stove though you have to bring your own kitchen supplies and cooking tools. I don't recommend you cook in the room, since the food counter and food court are very close by. Breakfast also nice with Asian, Arabian, and Western choice of food. I don't think that you will get bored though you have to stay for a week or more.
Room Tip: Definitely, the room which has view to Masjidil Haram (Al-Haram Mosque). Take the highest floor possible.
