  • This building contains several hotel and mall in the downstairs area. So once that is done, people can shop by shop or kulineran in this building. The clock tower is also the icon is most easily if one is lost or it could be used as a meeting point with other families or pilgrims. Icons that must be photographed especially during the night when the lights were already lit.

  • Abraj Hypermarket is a good place for shopping. Lots of good-quality choices at reasonable prices. The only draw-back being lack of parking spaces
  • Nice shopping experience. Wheelchair friendly. Some things cheaper in Abraj Hypermarket (located in P4 fl) than Bin Dawood supermarket (located in basement/ 1st fl).
  • I would like to stay at Abraj Al Bait on my every visit to Makkah Al-Mukkaramah because of their hospitality and best services.
  • The Abraj Al-Bait (Translated as "The Towers of the House") is a government-owned megatall complex of seven skyscraper hotels in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. These towers are a part of the King Abdulaziz Endowment Project that strives to modernize the city in catering to its pilgrims. The central hotel tower, the Makkah Royal Clock Tower, A Fairmont Hotel, has the world's largest clock face and is the third tallest building and fifth tallest freestanding structure in the world.
  • Surely the construction of this monstrosity has to be a sign of the End Times. Leave it to the Saudis to turn a city dedicated to religious worship into a garish Las Vegas-meets-Dubai monstrosity. Shame!
