InterContinental Dar Al Hijra Madinah

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This is a two star hotel with a five star location. Incompetent staff and terrible breakfast and mostly uncontrolled children running a mock till late hours of the night. It seems that the duty manager could care less as if we are in public service institution. Food is below standard for 150 riyals per person. Don't even ask about breakfast. Lack of food, dirty tables, bad management all the way. If you ate seeking a five star hotel in madina. Look elsewhere I gave it a 2 star rating only due to the location near Haram

The recieption staff are very freindly , cooperative and they kindly made upgrade considering my ambassador membership, but other hotel accomidations are not below intercontinental standerds such as room furnture, breakfast food varaities and staff, conceirge attitudes was very rude I hope they will improve

I stayed between Jan7th - Jan10th 2018. Duty Manager on my arrival was very professional, polite and considerate of my needs for the stay. The room was clean and quiet. Would book it again on my next visit. Staff is an asset to the Hotel, and if everyone at the reception role modelled Mr Amri, it would be a very pleasant experience for your customers. Well Done. Keep up the standards.

It was good, rooms could have been cleaner. We saw q tips on the carpet when we checked in. The concierge and doormen were really good and helpful, they used to help us with the wheel chairs for our parents. Breakfast was good. It's a decent hotel.

For a 5 star hotel...this is one of the worst place I stayed in. The restaurant runs out of food. The waiters use dirty gloves .. and early morning. This was all I could eat.. Ended up going out somewhere else to eat in the end. The rooms are very old and the power outlets for plugs actually blew up whilst we were there. Not really a 5 star hotel.... Try a newer hotel to get your money worth..

The location was brilliant. Service was very nice - staff was friendly, welcoming and helpful. Our request for a late check out was accommodated without any problems. The price should have included breakfast. We had to pay extra for breakfast which shouldn't have been the case. The cleanliness was average for the location and price we paid for the night. Beds weren't made even one the following day. The shower area glass didn't look clean but the quality of the shower was quite nice. We had to request for a clean set of towels twice before they arrived. A little more effort and it would be the place to stay hands down.

Just 03 blocks away from Masjid-e-Nabawi, this is a nice property to stay with good friendly staff. The best thing about the hotel is that though it is just 03 blocks away, it is away from the crowd and hustle bustle and allows you to rest in a peaceful environment. As we were leaving for Makkah in the evening, I was accommodated for a late complementary checkout (being an IHG member). Good breakfast options but in room dining was a bit expensive.

Although it is one of the highest visited places in Saudi, Madinah still suffers the poor quality hotels. Even the global chains shows very poor quality either regarding staff or the services. As an IHG member I expected to experience the normal treatment like any other guest in an intercontinental Hotel, what I found is that reception run by only one person that caused a lot of delay in check in, although other staff were already there no one helped. Room size is decent for a triple room, cleanliness is horrible, I found a lot of previous resident left over. AC was good, the response to clean what we found was good. Tried the breakfast there and decided not to repeat, although my Booking was B&B bases, food was very poor quality with no variety coffee was very bad, omelette was burned out, restaurant looks like a meeting room transformed into restaurant. With not enough places to sit you can wait for sometime. The overall view of this hotel, it is more into commercial than the usual intercontinental chain, if you are IHG member don’t expect special treatment, staff are friendly and trying their best to help you, but they are either understaffed or a lot of lazy staff are in place. Value for money is disappointing. For my next visit, sure I will choose another hotel

I booked two nights here but only spent one night due to cancelled flight from London. Location - short walk to mosque with only one road to cross. Lot's of shops nearby though you will struggle to find decent places to eat at. The hotel itself was good value for money and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again if I went on my own but if I was with family I might opt to stay a little closer - but it's really not far to walk at all. Decor of the rooms and the hotel in general is dated but not falling apart either. It has a certain charm about it now. Major bug bear was that this hotel has a constant lingering smell of cigarette smoke. Please limit the number of smoking rooms or restrict smoking to confined spaces so that the smell doesn't travel around the hotel. j

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.
