We just visited this hotel for a late lunch following a visit to Petra. We were part of a large party and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food. There was a good hot buffet with a whole lamb forming the centre of the spread. Also a huge selection of deserts. The hotel seemed to be very pleasant...

During our 2 day cruise in Jordan we spent one whole day in Petra and had a delicious lunch consisting of genuine local cuisine in this restaurant. The food was fresh, very tasty and there was a great choice of starters, main courses and desserts, all very typical of the country which we appreciated very much. The service was good,...

The owner Hala was really helpful and helped us move from Rock Camp to Petra Palace. The rooms were dated and the elevators didn't work most of the time. The rooms were good size with two queen beds. Location of the hotel was within walking distance from Petra and it was reasonably priced.

Clean, spacious rooms, hospitable staff, 5 mins walking distance from the Petra visitor centre. Worth the money and wish we had stayed here since the beginning of our trip. The rooms can do with a bit of a makeover especially the bathroom flush and water temperature, but no complaints overall. They have a good deal on the dinner buffet which...

Conveniently located to the entrance to the Petra archaeological site. The staff was helpful when called on for assistance, particularly Lubna at the front desk. Breakfast was a bit disappointing. Not one piece of fresh fruit in a country that exports fruit. The area seems to be suffering from periodic blackouts, which hit us twice in our two night stay....

Might sound like faint praise, but a reasonably-priced hotel close to Petra historical site entrance with friendly service, good food, a pool and large, clean rooms is anything but praiseworthy! If you stay, do try the buffet dinner on one of the evenings - it is tasty, varied and value-for-money.

I stayed here with my wife as part of a Travel Talk Tour. The reception area was very nice with lots of marble. The room was big and the bathroom was clean. The bed was comfortable. We had a double bed that was two doubles pushed together. The restaurant was nice but we only ate breakfast here. Breakfast was tasty...

This hotel is just 300m from the Petra entrance which is very convenient. Rooms are OK clean just bit old fashioned. What is big minus of this hotel is breakfasts. We stayed just two nights so it was OK but the variety of food for breakfast was very poor for such hotel. Also the smell in corridors of cigaret smoke...
