Review: Al Mona Ajyad Hotel, Makkah, Saudi Arabia



Coordinates: 21.409633, 39.828924 

Google Maps Link: https://goo.gl/maps/S3vzCpmpeDp

Address: Ajyad Street, Reyaa Bakhsh , Makkah, 21955, Saudi Arabia 

Phone+966 126067580  ext. 3307


Tips for Travelers:
  • You can turn on the TV and see live video of Haram and can make your plans according to the crowd.
  • The rooms facing the clock tower have a very nice view.


"Although there were Pros but some Cons were very strong"I stayed there for 6 nights, with my wife and son, from 19th to 26th January 2017



Positives:

- Check-in was quick.
- The staff was respectful and friendly.
- Soundproofing of the room was good.
- We had booked a double room but they gave us a room for 4 so the size was very good.
- Bed size was good, which is rare in Makkah.
- AC was very good.
- View from the window was excellent, we thoroughly enjoyed it.
- Washroom size was good as well.


Negatives:


- It seemed that the parking was for someone with the skillset of a circus driver. It was very narrow, dark and dirty. There were also fluids leaking from the ceiling which ruined my car's windscreen.
- There were 5 small lifts but those were not in sync thus in peak times it look some good amount of time to find a vacant one.
- The room had a strong bad smell, we kept windows open with AC running but all in vain.
- There was water leakage in the washroom, which was very inconvenient.
- The frequency of the shuttle service was not that high and the bus was usually very crowded, we mostly walked to/from the Haram.

Review: Toothbrush Protective Sleeve Box from AliExpress in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia




There was a Mega Sale on AliExpress on 11th November 2016, among the items we purchased were Toothbrush Protective Sleeve Boxes. There are only a few toothbrushes in the market which come with their own protected covers and those covers only cover the brush part. We travel a lot thus we were looking for a better solution. We came across these full covers, which looked like a good idea.

After some research, we ordered the following item:


 
Toothbrush Kit Travel Portable Toothbrush Ccase Germproof Ventilation Wash Tooth Brush Cylinder Protective sleeve box-in Storage Boxes & Bins from Home & Garden on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group
 
Cheap brush box, Buy Quality brush kitchen directly from China box Suppliers: Product name: Portable travel wash toothbrush box / toothbrush kit Weight: 0.018kg Packaging: OPP Bag Product Material

I opted for free shipping thus the item was sent via China Post Ordinary Small Packet Plus, which means the item was not trackable.

Purchased on : 11th November 2016
Destination : Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Shipped on : 12th November 2016 and tracking # was provided
Delivery Date : Before 11th January 2016

We had ordered 3. The packing was good enough. I have been using it for a month and it is serving its purpose very well. Its size is good enough for any usual size toothbrush. I am planning to buy 3 more.

In this price, with this quality, this product is recommended!

Review: 2 in 1 Stainless Steel Fork Spoon from AliExpress in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia




There was a Mega Sale on AliExpress on 11th November 2016, one of the items we purchased was 2 in 1 Stainless Steel Fork Spoon. PIA (Pakistan Airlines) use to serve supper with similar spoons. I found this type of spoon very useful for eating ice cream or ice cream cakes. It was not easy to find similar designs but I found something similar some time ago on Etihad Guest Reward Shop and I ordered it:

 
True Utility SporKnife - Keychain Camping Tool | TrueUtility.com
 
Stainless steel folding and locking fork, spoon and lightly serrated blade! Hangs on your belt or key-ring with a handy quick release clip.

It came out to be good but it was not very convenient for daily use due to the knife edges and folding design. So while searching on AliExpress I came across a few similar designs. 

After some research, we ordered the following item:


 
Hot Sale High Quality Special Design Stainless Steel Tea Coffee Spoons two style Long Handle One Pieces Flatware Kitchen Tool-in Spoons from Home & Garden on Aliexpress.com | Alibaba Group
 
Cheap tool, Buy Quality tool coating directly from China tool can Suppliers: description:     length:16cm    width :3.6cm   yichuanjj.tmall.com  6.8
