Travel Blogs from Medina

This hotel is also called Royal Andalus Hotel or Al Andalus Classy Suites and offers residential apartments in combinations of 1, 2, 3 rooms per apartment.
While servos and maintenance require attention, the location and rates make it the most affordable hotel this close to the Masjid Nabawi it is less than 30 meters from the Mataaf.
Acros from the Hilton Hotel and Taiba Commercial centre, the hotel is also very close to a number of eating places including KFC/Hadgees and 3 very good Pakistani take-aways just outside the back exit.
Room Tip: Try to get a room with a view of the Haram.
During our stay in March 2011 we bought own towels as the hotel did not have enough - bath towel SR25 at Bin Dawood. There was a fridge/freezer in our apartment. Fridge did not work. Freezer worked as a fridge. You need to call the cleaner daily when you need room cleaned. Apartment is ideal for family with children.
