Transportation

Located adjacent to the Holy Haram, Makkah Clock Royal Tower is just an hour’s drive from Jeddah’s International Airport.

 

Taxis

This is the recommended transportation to the hotel. It costs around SAR 150. You will arrive to Holy Haram through Umm Al-Qura road which gives you a branch to Ibrahim Al-Khalil road before it gets into the tunnel. It is advised to ask the driver to drop you at the hotel entrance under the tunnel. First one will lead you in front of the mall entrance with a 10-minute walk. The second exit under the tunnel gets you directly to the hotel. Fairmont hotel is at the end of the parking area.

Ibrahim Al-Khalil road is the third option with longer walk and can pass through a lot of congested cars, as well as, longer walk TO THE HOTEL.

 

Taxi App

Careem and Uber have grown substantially in Middle East, both are often less expensive than traditional taxi services. Via your smartphone you can download the app, fill-out the credit card information or connect the application to PayPal, and then you can start your journey. When you need a cab, simply send out a call through the app and the driver will note your location through the GPS and map, or you can select a specific point of where to meet.

The charge is based on both distance and time, like a taxi meter, and a receipt will be sent to your email once the journey is over, charging your credit card. Drivers are also subject to user’s ratings, so if you receive bad service there is, in theory, more accountability than with a taxi off the street.

Car Rental

If you rent a car we advise you to park it in the famous public parking area nearby Makkah (Kudai, Al-Umrah and Aziziyah) then take a taxi SAR 10 TO THE HOTEL. In these public parking, you can park your car for free for unlimited duration.

Some hotels provide free parking for their guests; our advice is to make sure the hotel provide the parking since parking buildings and hotels charges SAR 25 an hour.
