Frequently asked questions

If you’re looking for a 5-star hotel in Madinah near Haram Plaza and Al Masjid an Nabawi, Sofitel is the ideal choice. You can walk to the main northern entrance of the mosque – Bab Malik al-Fahad – in approximately five minutes, while Bab Uthman bin Affan, or the ladies’ gate, is even closer. Many rooms and suites overlook the mosque.

Our top hotel in Madinah is located steps from the northern gates of Al Masjid an Nabawi, or the Prophet’s Mosque. It’s also a short drive from Dar Al-Madinah Museum, Al-Ghamama Mosque (one of the oldest in the city) and Archer’s Hill. Also known as Mount Uhud, the hill was a 7th-century battle site and is now an important place of pilgrimage.

Our Al Masjid an Nabawi hotel welcomes guests of all ages, with child-friendly options at our international buffet restaurant and a choice of rooms with multiple beds. Our Presidential Suite is particularly well-suited to large families, with three bedrooms, three bathrooms and a spacious lounge and living area. 

Many visitors travel to Madinah as part of their Hajj or Umrah pilgrimage, in which case their dates will be dictated by the Islamic calendar. Weather-wise, Madinah is hot and dry throughout the year, with daytime temperatures at their most pleasant from October to May. However, air-conditioning throughout makes our hotel a year-round destination.
