The staff was helpful and pleasant. Can't say much about the facilities but the state of the hotel in general is ok. We had a seating area in our spacious room with a balcony. The hotel is located near restaurants (try My Home BBQ - excellent lamb chops; don't try Rakwet Kanaan unless you like salty food), laundry (for cheaper...

The hotel is located close to the city center, the rooms are cozy and clean. The staff was very nice and helpful, the guests are friendly. Flexible case management. The food is plentiful and very tasty with a choice of local specialties as well.

I chose this hotel because of my limited time in Aqaba. There was no need for something special. I liked the location, it's in the centre of the city. Wifi is also a nice benefit. I wouldn't go there for a long week's holiday, actually I would not go to Aqaba for a holiday at all. What I did not...

A really nice hotel, centrally located in Aqaba. Close to everything, the staff are very helpful. We had free wifi, clean and functioning rooms, comfy beds, lots of hot water which was important as we'd just come in from the desert. Close to huge number of restaurants and coffee shops. Recommended

We booked here after reading the many good reviews on Tripadvisor. We did't pay heed to the few bad reviews, but after spending a night there I must agree with the last ones: beauty is in the eye of the beholder! The hotel is good for young people and families with kids, not for higher level travellers. It's well located...

The Al Qidra was a great hotel. Big rooms including couches and laundry tub facilities. Central to the town, restaruants, cafes and shops. Best of all - free wifi! Basic breakfast. Would recommend this hotel.

Beautiful Aqaba!! This hotel is located in the heart of the city, within 10 mins walk to the Red Sea. Could actually see the water form my balcony. Room was very modern, all tile flooring and very nice bed. Only complaint is water pressure is terrible in the shower, and don't forget to turn on the water heater, or else...

Good modern clean hotel in the best part of town for tourists. close to a good choice of restaurants and shopping area. The breakfast was very good. It has an arrangement with Berenice Beach club at reduced rates. The coral and facilites here were excellent. When you go to/in the Red Sea you will have to use a beach club...

This is a nice, clean and basic hotel which is more than good enough if you are planning to use most of the time on sightseings or diving, but don't expect the hotel to be a big experience in itself. It provides all necessities without any luxury. Very centrally located in Aqaba to go to restaurants, the spas, supermarkets etc....

I booked this hotel after reading a lot of great reviews. And, I agree, the staff were friendly and it is located exactly in the center of Aqaba. But, it is definitely run down and drab. The triple room just barely fit 3 single beds (which wasn't an issue--didn't expect spaciousness at this price) and everything very worn. The towels...
