Maybe my standard for a hotel for a family vacation is high; especially after a long day of site seeing from Amman to Petra to Al Karak back to Amman and here in Irbid, you'd definitely want a nice room to go back to. We got to the hotel around 10pm when our scheduled check in was supposed to be...

Irbid is full of busy and energy as a commercial, university city, interesting moreso for its north west location as the route to the Syrian border and ruins at Umm Qais overlooking the Galilee and Israel/Palestine just a wing away. The hotel is run by a charming Egyptian and many of the guests are Middle East Christians. There is a...

I had asked for the large room on the top floor when booking. I must say I grew up in a smaller house than that. Estimated sizes for the bedroom: 4*6m, living room 4*9,, bathroom 3*3m. There were chairs and sofas for at least ten people. Bad news was that the 150*150cm television set was not connected (defect?) but the...

I'm not sure why this hotel is the pick of hotels in Irbid recommended by Lonely Planet. I would hate to see hotels worse than this. Even though the edition of Lonely Planet is a few years old it's hard to see how this hotel would "deserve it's 4-star rating" even back then. The rooms are dirty and musty, it's...

The Al Joude hotel was disappointing to say the least. We paid the equivalent of what we had paid for other 3 star hotels in Jordan and would definitely say that this hotel was only 2 stars at best. Breakfast selection was poor with just olives, stale bread and a couple of other things on offer. The outdoor restuarant area...

I wouldn't recommend this place. We stayed there just one night, having crossed the border from Syria too late to go straight to Amman. It was featured in Lonely Planet as a 4-star hotel, which describes it as "classy and sophisticated". Perhaps we were unlucky with our room, which was enormous, but not particular clean or well maintained. The sheets...

Al Joude is quite an ok hotel, although one should not expect any European or American standard. The rooms can be very noisy, especially if your room is towards the restaurant. Expect to hear loud music till 1 AM. The rooms are spacious but, especially the toilet, is in need of renovation. The shower had no curtain so that after...

A previous reviewer mentioned that Lonely Planet had this as their first choice in Irbid. I must admit I didn’t consult Trip Advisor prior to staying there and trusted Lonely Planet’s judgement. Well, never again. The Al Joude is far and away one of the worst places I’d ever stayed in, and if I ever set foot on Irbid again,...

I travel for work often: Africa, Syria, Nepal... So I am used to be flexible. But believe me this hotel is the worst ever. The room I was given is VERY dirty and old. Just one towel, no hands soap. Internet connection, guaranteed at booking and important for my job, was not working in the room and nothing has been...

The Lonely Planet reveiw says 'Our Pick'; well I guess all things are subjective and rooms vary but my room was quite foul. I've stayed in cockroach infected rooms and 5 star hotels in the past so am not just being a snob. This room was really awful, the bathroom was filthy and covered in hairs (head and pubic by...
