Often overlooked when planning your Umrah pilgrimage, finding a hotel that suits you and your group’s needs is incredibly important. While it can be easy to spend time and energy packing correctly, managing your schedule, and making sure that your group is organised; finding a quality room should be high on your priority list.

So, why is finding great accommodation so important and what can we at YaHajji do to help?

1. It gives you a chance to rest

Umrah is a physically and spiritually draining exercise that can take place in a very warm climate. Taking the time to find a quality room means that you can be guaranteed a chance to rest and reflect at the end of a long day. This should involve finding rooms that include air-conditioning and room service, which can help ease your adjustment to a different environment and save valuable prep time in the mornings.

2. It makes travel easier

Taking the time to find a  well-placed hotel can help save valuable time and effort on transport, with many locations less than five minutes’ walking distance from sites such as the 5* Al Shohada Hotel in Makkah or the gorgeous 5* Al Madinah Concorde Hotel. These sites are directly connected by quality roadways which make it incredibly easy to get to where you need to be and avoid crowding or other issues. Seeking out hotels in Makkah is always a great option when it comes to expanding your choices, but other well-connected locations can also be considered.

3. It can help bring down your budget.

If you’re looking to save money on your pilgrimage, finding a goof deal on a quality room is a fantastic way to maximise your spend. Using our dynamic umrah tracker means that you can be guaranteed to receive the best price on the market for your flights and your hotel accommodation – helping you reduce the overall cost of your pilgrimage. If this a concern, you can look to finda  balance between ‘star quality’ and cost, making sure that the needs of your party are fully met.
