Makkah, or Mecca, in Saudi Arabia is traditionally the trip of a lifetime for some. This world-famous city is a unique and fascinating destination for anyone. Makkah hotels come at all price levels from under £50, medium range about £70 to luxury facilities at about £200 per night. A few traditional buildings house hotels in the old town but most are modern hotels with up-to-date facilities. Many up-market hotels are in the Al Haram area inside the first ring road, while cheap Makkah hotels can be found in the vicinity of the Mina Train Station 3.
From most Makkah hotels it is easy to explore the city on foot, and often quicker as the traffic can be quite dense. Taxis are plentiful and cheap and buses are air-conditioned and clean. There is a good bus service to Jeddah from Makkah which costs under £2 one way. Inside the city of Makkah you must of course visit the Grand Mosque for a truly unforgettable experience, and the Black Stone, although this is always very crowded and unless you absolutely must get close enough to touch, it is best not to try. A trip to see Jabal-al-noor, the Mountain of Light, is a must, although attempting the ascent would be a mistake unless you are very fit! From the cheap hotels in Makkah you will find a huge variety of restaurants and eateries in easy walking distance with everything on offer from traditional Meccan dishes, Indian cuisine and international fast food chains.
When you take your pick of the cheap hotels in Makkah, you will have the ideal base from which to set out on your explorations, and to recover after the exertions of the day. The more central the better, so you can walk to your various destinations, freshen up for the evening and set out again to sample some of the city's wonderful restaurants.
