I stayed at the Misk Hotel for three days while touring Jordan. I decided to stay there because at the time I reserved Misk was the #2 rated hotel for Amman and the price could not be beat elsewhere. Misk certainly lived up to my expectations and is a great value.
My room was well appointed with the basics. It was clean and the bathroom was of particular high quality. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of space for my suitcase and to put clothes in the closet. I could not figure out how to get the TV to work, but did not care enough to ask the front desk. The free wi-fi was a huge plus and worked without issue. I had only two minor complaints. 1) I did not think there were enough electrical outlets in the room. I found one European outlet and two UK outlets. No outlets there the bed for night time phone charging. There was also no shaver outlet in the bathroom. 2) the bathroom would benefit from a proper counter at the sink. There was only a small rack to the side that was filled by the soap dish on one level and drinking glasses on the second level. I was forced to put my toiletries on the ledge across from the sink and go back and forth when getting ready in the morning.
Some reviewers complained about the street noise but i had no issues. I was in room 103 and could see the street from my window. Never heard a thing. Also the breakfast is a bit minimal but adequate. The first morning there was an omelet station, but not the next. Not sure why the difference. The hotel was also kind enough to arrange for some croissants and juice the morning I left at 4am.
The desk staff was wonderfully helpful and would write street names in Arabic for me to hand to cab drivers. Taxis to the old town and rainbow street were under 2 JD. The hotel is new and no taxi driver I used knew where it was. But the key holder has a useful map that each driver was able to use to figure out where to go.
All in all a solid hotel for a good price. Would considering staying again if I return.
