In any foreign stay, holiday or tour the most important part of the journey is the accommodation. This is especially true for Hajj and Umrah considering the fact that they are centered on the mosques in Makkah and Madinah. For visitors to the holy mosques the location and distance from the hotels to the mosques themselves are of utmost priority and importance. With the massive expansion works in the holy cities of Makkah and Madinah finding a decent hotel within easy walking distance is somewhat difficult. This is furthermore true for those on a tight budget and searching for economy standard accommodation.
Ahmed Travels has a vast catalogue of hotels that favours all budgets and suitability. From economy standard to the very best of luxury, all the decent hotels in makkah and madinah are covered. If the hotel is not in our catalogue then most probably it does not meet our stringent requirements. For hotels our focus is on whether the property is licensed by the chamber of commerce for pilgrims, if it has any star ratings, the general condition of the property, its distance from the holy mosques and considering all this the price per night for the room. With these measures in place even our economy hotels are of decent standard and pilgrims are appreciative of it upon return.
Below is a list of all the hotels in makkah and madinah that we stock at present. You can go through each one to receive more information in terms of standard, location and distance from the holy mosques. If you wish to purchase just hotels in makkah and madinah then you have the option of purchasing directly from the link below or calling us on 0207 078 7399.

The current construction work is improving the standards of hotels in makkah and madinah. Old buildings are being demolished and any new ones that are being erected are usually of very good standard, all in all highly improving the accommodation experience for the pilgrims.
Hotels in makkah and madinah
Umrah December 2014
I just went on Umrah with Omi Hossain who booked it through yourselves. AH everything was super smooth and well managed and the hotels and transport were very good so jazakallahu khair for organising everything.
"We chose Ahmed Tours as they came highly recommended by other family members and we had also used them previously this year when performing Umrah and found them to be highly trustworthy and committed.
During Hajj 2012, they fully delivered on their package promises which I believe is a testament of their years' of experience in this arena.
From the pre-hajj seminar to the final flight leaving Medina, the Ahmed Travel & Tours team were exceptional in their dedication in making this amazingly spiritual journey a memorable and stress free one.
We would not hesitate to use them again.
