This hotel is good value for money and is it the perfect location to walk to Petra. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. We booked our Petra by Night tickets with them with no fuss. There is free parking right outside.

This hotel is centrally located just about five minutes walk from the main entrance of the Petra visitor centre. The room was simple but clean. The food was good and hotel management was very kind and helpful.

Good location only about 7-10 minute walk to the Jett bus stop and petra visitors center. The restaurant didn't have much from the menu but they did have beer which was great after an all day hike. The rooms were adequate an the blackout curtains which were good.

We stayed one night at the place, the food was delicious home made jordanian food. The place has a wonderful view over the town and the hills towards petra, there is also a big terrace on the 4 floor. However the terrace is abandoned without seats nor services. The house might had better days but is still in decent condition....

We arrived at the hotel and I can honestly say it's the first time I've not felt welcome at a hotel so it was not a great start to our holiday. I can't say that any member of front of house smiled or was pleasant. BUT we booked this hotel because of its proximity to Petra so we tried to...
