Oldest is relative

The term: oldest building is relative. This one yours to be one. Well maintained it is. But you can find older ones.

Fascinating
Sep. 2019
Advertised as the oldest building in downtown Amman, in Arabic, diwan means the section of the house whose doors are always open to guests. Built in 1924 as the Central Post Office and later used by the Haifa Hotel, it now hosts literary and artistic events. We must have found this place on Atlas Obsurca, because it was pretty random. We had a great time - minus the coffee, skip that - and enjoyed the 30 minutes we spent here.

Little oasis

Built in 1924, this is one of the oldest buildings in Amman.

Really stunning to go in and spend some time, as this little oasis it takes you back in time.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful old house
Oct. 2019 • Couples
This is a beautiful old house with so much charm. I can highly recommend ordering a coffee and watching the bustling street below from the balcony. A real gem in the heart of the city.

Amman vivid gem
Aug. 2019 • Couples
My girlfriend and I went up to see the old building and to have the view of city from the balcony; the place was amazing plus the hospitality of the duke and Saleem was from another planet.
We enjoyed time with them while having a true experience about local interaction and perspective of what is Amman about.

Magical nook in the center of the busy city!
Mar. 2019
We happened upon the Duke's Diwan while roaming downtown Amman and it is delightful! Absolutely one of the best little gems of tranquility and calm in a busy Arabic city! Go up the stairs and enjoy a respite in the hot day. You will be charmed with a cup of tea and a chat (if you speak Arabic) with the caretaker.
