1. Very neat and quiet hotel with antique look furniture and interior. 2. Rooms are spacious enough with good facilities as well as good comfy washroom 3. Seperate ablution basin for foot wash. 4. Very near to Masjid e Nababi, Market places and food shops (Bangladeshi, pakistani) 5. Good variations in buffet breakfast daily with well behaved staffs. 6. Very nice smell in all through the corridors and lifts. 7. Just beside the main road and easy accessibility to bus stop nearby.

Great location , friendly staff, good food in the breakfast, good price and service , the worst thing in this hotel is the parking very tight plus you can not enter the parking until you go to the reception and get permission even you had confirmed booking which may put you in risk to take fine due to parking outside the hotel

I had a preservation by phone and the reception stated that to have 2 triple room with shared door to accommodate 6 members, but unfortunately there weren’t like that and said this is the available now Dirty curtains

Only 1 receptionist in reception. Hotel lobby is small, narrow, old furniture and tattered. Room furniture is very old, Cleaning standards are low. Street noise is inside the room, hard to sleep Pillows were disasters Overall rating 3 stars max

I stayed at Dar Al Hijra Intercontinental in May for 11 days ten nights. An excellent choice. It is in pretty close proximity to the Masjid Al Nabawi and Haram shopping complexes and malls. The hotel is not exactly true to being an Intercontinental hotel brand, however is still not less than being similar to a warm Holiday Inn. The housekeeping and concierge department is excellent. Mr. Abdul Hameed Moinuddin the chief concierge is always up and smiling to help you and cater to your needs. The suite I stayed in was clean and almost like a studio apartment with one bathroom and one powder room. A clean kitchen and a big bedroom with office facilities, attached with a dinning and family sitting lounge. The staff is cooperative and the breakfast good with decent variety. All in all, value for money. Definitely, going to stay again here!

Positives: · Staff was friendly and helpful. . The room and washroom were spacious, neat and clean, with all the required facilities and High-Quality Decor. . Bed size was good. . We could easily make the room dark enough, to sleep in the daytime. . AC was good . Room service was very good . Car Parking was big, spacious and access was easy. . Location was close to Masjid e Nabvi · Utility store was near · I would like to stay here again Negatives: · Lifts were either not enough or not well managed, were too crowded thus I had to take stairs most of the time . They changed the keys of the rooms every evening without informing us, after waiting for the lift to reach the room or taking the stairs to reach the room, we use to find out that the keys have been changed and we have to get new keys from the reception.

Stayed only 1 night at this hotel due to its distance from the Haram. As usual, Intercontinental never falls short. As a Royal Ambassador, I was upgraded to a suite which was recently revamped. Lifts needs upgrading. Toads are always busy so be prepared to be disturbed by the noise from the road below. There's no club lounge in this hotel and frequent members aren't given complimentary breakfast instead. Overall a comfortable stay.

I stayed 3 nights at this hotel and I was really happy with the service here. This is a very fairly priced hotel compared to the other 5 star hotels. Being a platinum elite member I got upgraded to a 1 bedroom executive suite with is really huge and comfortable. MR Mohammed the front desk supervisor is really professional and welcoming. The breakfast was good and the cafe in the lobby makes very nice coffees. The hotel has been recently renovated and the new bathrooms are really nice. Housekeeping was good . Thanks and will be back soon inshallah

Located about 3 blocks away from the prophets mosque on the main road makes it a convenient place to stay but has minimal views of the mosque The reception area is small and quite overcrowded but reception staff are quite friendly The most difficult part is the room lifts which they have 2 lifts serving 7 floors and each floor has approx 30 rooms each. With such a busy hotel and the peak season makes it very difficult at prayer times We had 4 rooms book of which 1 was 1 bedroom suite. This is very comfortable because it consists of a large lounge and dining area, a reasonable sized kitchen and a separate comfortable bedroom with en suite . There is also a second toilet. The deluxe rooms are also spacious with either a twin bed or a king size bed with a small lounge area The standard rooms are much smaller but tight. We settle for the deluxe The room service as far as cleaning was excellent and always on time done with a smile We had 1 meal booked per day which was a bit limited and confined to a very small area and this does become congested at peak times. Overall the standard was average. It is listed as 5 star but I think that it is more a 4 star hotel .

From the outside this hotel doesn't seem like min but the rooms are absolutely luxurious. After a long journey from Mekkah this bed was the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on! Facilities in room include fridge, kettle, tea bags, coffee, and iron which is a lot for my experience of hotels in the two holy cities. Really comfortable and clean and. It far from the mosque
