Hotels in Madina anyone?
By Faraz Omar Saudi Gazette
JEDDAH - A cool new service to find hotels in Madina has been launched. The link - www.haraj.net/madina
- shows a satellite view of the city with the Prophet’s Mosque at the center. The hotels around it are marked in color.
Simply moving your mouse over the hotels gives you the name of the hotel and the contact details. This gives people the option to see and choose hotels according to their proximity with the Prophet’s mosque.
The website, still at its initial stage of development, promises to offer much more in the future.
It plans to build an online market place for visitors to find any services they need, from the comfort of their homes or offices.
Those going to hajj should definitely visit the site and see your hotel's location so you don't become lost on the first time back from the masjid....
P.S. It would be a good idea to make this post a sticky....
