impressive hotel, but i don´t like the building. it shows a modern way of moorish architecture, which is quite ok, part of the tradition, but it´s transformed in a ridiculous way...less show would be much better...who do they want to impress? allah? god? the rest of the non-muslim world? the muslim world? and.....why?

I would have liked it better if it was two or three identical main towers next to each other instead of that chaotic lump at the bottom. It would have looked much more impressive.

Wow fantastic photos and interior. Totally classy IMO inside, opinions about the structure as a whole notwithstanding.

In all of honesty,The Royal Family made a bluff by building this tower in mecca,It should be a place to remember the holy pilgramage,to put us closer too god in the holiest city in Islam.We don't need a 601 Metre tower to remember worldliness.Salvation can only be found in sincerity

At least the two outer towers are not finished, there is even a crane left on one of them. So if you consider this building as the whole complex, it's definately not finished.
