It's a little bit of a hike down hill to Petra (and more coming back up hill). We had a car, but preferred a good workout. There are lots of restaurants and shopping along the way. The room was nice, the bed was big and clean, the employees were very helpful and friendly. Admittedly, when we closed the toilet lid,... More

The owners son at reception is exceptionally arrogant, rude, unwelcoming with no customer service. Make sure you check your final bill carefully and make sure you are not getting ripped off. Breakfast was terrible and cold with no food options. Not to mention the bathroom in the room, it was filthy and looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years...

Stayed at the Petra Sella last month and the accommodation as excellent. Clean, modern room with nice bathroom (hot water takes a few minutes, just be patient) and fantastic staff.

Fair prices for a renovated, comfortable and clean hotel. Staff was wonderful, willing to help at any time.

We enjoyed our stay at the Sella. The rooms are clean and updated. The food in the restaurant is good, the downside is there is no menu. You must inform the gentleman at the desk by 5pm and dinner is served at 8pm. The breakfast is a full Arabic breakfast with no western choices. This was difficult for our family... More
