Many Umrah or Hajj travel agents offer lodging facilities in five-star hotels, starting from three-star. Sometimes, some pilgrims are deceived because of misinterpreting conditions in the city of Mecca and the hotels there. In order not to suffer the same fate, we should get to know the variety of five-star hotels that are located closest to Masjid Al Haram follows.
- Hotel Retaj
First, there is the Retaj Hotel, which is only 50 meters away from Masjid Al Haram, aka a stone’s throw! This hotel is still part of the Grand Zamzam Tower and is precisely on the seventh floor. The hotel faces Masjid Al Haram and has luxurious rooms like a five-star hotel. Very suitable for worshipers who stay with family groups. Facilities provided include air conditioning, cable TV, a 24-hour front desk, and car rental.

- Grand Zamzam
Still, in the courtyard of Masjid Al Haram, the Grand Zamzam Hotel is only 50 meters from the building. Access to pilgrims staying here to Masjid Al Haram is effortless, especially since this hotel also directly faces Masjid Al Haram. Facilities are relatively complete ranging from air conditioning, TV, car rental, 24-hour front desk to a separate living room.
