As a BEST WESTERN PLUS property, the hotel features a range of upscale facilities including a restaurant, coffee shop, kid’s club and business center. There is also a shuttle bus service offering transfers to the Holy Mosque.

The hotel’s 152 rooms all come equipped with modern amenities such as cable television, coffee and tea making facilities, safes and refrigerators. Several adjoining rooms are available for larger groups and families, and - as with all Best Westerns around the world - internet is free in all areas of the hotel.

“The city receives more than three million pilgrims during the Hajj and around six million for the Umrah, and Best Western is delighted to be able to cater for these visitors with a modern, upscale accommodation choice. We are confident that BEST WESTERN PLUS Bakkah Awan Hotel will be extremely popular with all visitors to Makkah,” said Glenn de Souza, Best Western’s Vice President International Operations – Asia & the Middle East.

The opening of BEST WESTERN PLUS Bakkah Awan Hotel marks the latest phase of the company’s rapid expansion in the Middle East. Only last year Best Western launched its first hotels in Saudi Arabia, Oman and Jordan, and this year the company debut in Kuwait.
