Staying in Aziziyyah, a suburb of Makkah, before the Hajj starts allows you to take a break from the busy and hectic environment near Masjid Al Haram, conserve some energy for the days ahead and prepare your heart and mind for the momentous journey of Hajj. If your package includes a stay after the rites of Hajj are complete, then it provides you with a great opportunity to reflect on Hajj, on what you have achieved and how it will change your life going forward. An additional plus point is that Aziziyyah is within the Haram boundary of Makkah, which means that those staying there will still be getting the reward of their prayers being multiplied by 100,000.
The DST Apartment Hotel in Aziziyyah is a clean and modern apartment building located very conveniently, due to its close proximity to Mina, in an area known as Shisha. This is very advantageous as it allows you to access the building during the days of Hajj and make use of its sleeping and washroom facilities when needed. The walk from our camp in Mina to the apartment building is approximately 30 mins.
