“Avoid like the plague”
Reviewed 22 October 2007

Incredibly rude service, charged for things they said were free, the staff were smoking in the "non-smoking" restaurant, too noisy to sleep in, failed to arrange a dive I had booked 3 weeks in advance....if you want to have a nice stay in Aqaba, pay more and stay at a 4 or 5 star place with a private beach, you'll be glad you did.

Stayed October 2007

If you're looking for a good budget hotel in excellent location,with good service, then this hotel would be a good choice. The room sizes and bathrooms are comfortable. However,the enterior design reflect the '70s but
they've done their best to preserve it. Cleaning is not impacible...but luckily focused on bathroom.Staff are friendly and very helpful.(For a tip they can be asked for almost anything;eg.buying items from the market or medicine from pharmacy)
The pools are kept clean and sun deckchairs with matresses are provided around them. The breakfast buffet offers hot and cold meals and drinks with wide variety of choice.

This hotel is very nice the rooms are clean and large. The staff was very nice and helpful, the resturant on the ground floor had a nice buffet and the staff was polite and helpful, they recognized guest after there first visit(I did not have a chance to get to the club on the top floor but it looked nice when I walked by). I would stay at this hotel again and would recomend it to travelers. There are nice views of the Gulf and of the city from rooms and the deck on the top floor.
