The hotels at the heart of Makkah
09 Oct 2014 1 PM
Makkah is the holiest city in Islam and each year its population triples as millions of Muslims travel across the globe to make their pilgrimage.
It’s a once in a lifetime experience that gives Muslims the chance to visit the birthplace of Muhammad and the Ka’ba – the most sacred site in Islam which all Muslims face to pray. And to truly soak up the experience, staying in a hotel at the heart of Makkah
can put you within easy reach and eye line of Makkah’s most significant religious sites.
Makkah Hilton Towers
Promising high quality accommodation and warm hospitality on your arrival in Makkah, Makkah Hilton Towers is in a prime location for visiting the main Islamic sites.
Travelling to Makkah is one of the five pillars of Islam and all able-bodied Muslims are expected to go there at least once in their lifetime. Most pilgrimages take place during the Hajj – the largest gathering of Muslims anywhere in the world – and involve traditional rituals that must be completed on each trip to Makkah.
In fact, Hilton Towers is so convenient for the religious sites that you can wake up to views of the Holy Haram Mosque and the Ka’ba from your guest room. Muslims all over the world pray in the direction of the Ka’ba and at Hilton Towers you can pray within view of it. Alternatively, you can ask for views of the city or the mountains which are equally as spectacular.
Excellent accommodation and service
When you stay at a Hilton hotel
, you can expect the best. Let nothing distract you from the purpose of your trip as you take in the surroundings and wind down in comfortable, high quality accommodation.
Pray in one of the hotel’s two air-conditioned and carpeted 10,000-seat prayer halls before heading out to explore the religious sites, which are mostly within five miles of the hotel.
Sleep in bright, airy guest rooms or book a suite for added comfort during your stay. Suites come with unparalleled views of the Holy Haram and Ka’ba as well as a living room, kitchenette and dining area so that your hotel stay feels like being in a home away from home.
Perhaps your journey will take you to Madinah – the second holiest city in Islam after Makkah. It’s the burial place of the Islamic prophet Muhammad and just a few hours’ drive from Makkah – perfect for those who would like to take in both cities on their trip.
Located in the centre of Madinah’s shopping district, the Madinah Hilton is a short walk from the Holy Prophet’s Masjid - the second mosque ever built and one of the largest mosques in the world. Now a major pilgrimage site, guests at the Madinah Hilton are just minutes away from it.
And wherever in the world you stay at a Hilton hotel, you can expect the best. Visitors to the city can look forward to high speed internet and a comfortable environment and all guests can dine on oriental and international cuisine at the Madinah restaurant.
A top tip is to make the most of the hotel’s close proximity to some of Madinah’s most important sights, including its huge shopping malls and the Mountain of Uhud. Choose to book at Hilton Saudi Arabia
and you’re guaranteed excellent service from one of the world’s most reputed hotel chains.
