Overlooking the 7th-century Al-Masjid al-Haram in the heart of Mecca, the enormous Makkah Clock Royal Tower, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, is perfectly located for Muslim travelers making the pilgrimage to the Holy City. In the iconic clock tower building guests have access to a sprawling shopping mall on the ground floor, two health clubs and nine restaurants, plus a choice of 1,542 guestrooms. All have an elegant look, with cream carpets, ornate rugs and dark wood furnishings, as well as modern comforts such as flat-screen TVs, WiFi and tea and coffee facilities. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame views of the cityscape in Fairmont Rooms and of Al-Masjid al-Haram in Deluxe Rooms, while Signature Rooms look directly onto the mosque. The hotel restaurants are set up for large group meals or intimate dinners, with multiple cafés, a steakhouse, two buffet restaurants and the first five-star Saudi restaurant in the city, Al Dira. For relaxing downtime, there are separate health clubs for men and women, both with Jacuzzis, steamrooms and saunas, and gyms.
In the Area
Mecca is the holiest city in Islam, and more than 1.5 billion Muslims around the world turn toward it five times a day to pray; they are also required to make a pilgrimage to the city at least once in their lives. Beyond Al-Masjid al-Haram, visitors make stops at such sacred sites as Jabal Al-Nour, Al-Jamarat and Jabal Thawr, admire the Islamic architecture of Qasr Al-Saqqaf in the Al-Maabda quarter, or visit the museum of archaeology and ethnology in the Qasr Khozam.
How to Get There
Many thanks to all staff for great service and hospitality in holy month of Ramadan and thanks to the great saudi national team which made us to feel home and I would mention Ms. Wafa for special the extra suppoort and manging the flow with passion. Hope to stay again very soon.
This is my first experience with Atyaf restaurant - fairmont hotel -Mekkah, the restaurant is clean and food is delicious and fresh ,with wide variety,hence I came for Umrah( Islamic ritual ) with my family , one of my family members is sick and was unable to walk to the restaurant.. As most hotels buffet food is not allowed to be taken to rooms .. I asked a person called Mr Suliman Khan working there if I can take some dishes and explained the situation .. I found this person giving very much of help and asked me to take what i want and they will serve it to the room, and they did within minutes .. thanks Mr Suliman you made us much satisfied , though this very busy time of the year .. u made us feel very well hosted and welcomed and satisfied ... good host is best service you can give to a customer .. much of appreciation .
Unlucky selection this time on these period of the holy month of Ramadan with no any special services for the customers even they didn’t book the hold services in the hotel as this will help the hotel
The hotel is Great, fantastic location, and all the staff helpful as well as service and great restaurants, excellent view.
Quick check in and check out.i strongly recommend this hotel for people visiting Makkah.
I am overall satisfied with the services, except the front desk/concierge attendance were totally unhelpfull. The call attendance on the concierge were not attending the calls as well as not replying to the email on time. it take long time to get a reply from them.
