Amra Palace Hotel
Ranked #15 of 41 Hotels in Petra - Wadi Musa
Reviewed 25 October 2011

Hotel is in Wadi Musa 2km from the Petra site. Taxis overcharge for getting to the site but still not so much money like 5JD.
Hotel is very clean not trendy design but functional and very quiet. It is a bit above wadi musa so has great view on the valley.
The best in this hotel is the hammam. For 13JD you get the hammam, scrubbling for 15mins and 15mins massage then tea. This is excellent for relaxing after visiting Petra.
Breakfast in the hotel is very good with a lot of choice.

Room Tip: Ask one with view on the valley.

We stayed here for two nights, and were very comfortable. The staff was helpful in arranging trips for us, especially the incredible Petra-by-night walk. The room was clean and the rate was reasonable for the location. The pool was nice to soak in after a day spent hiking in Petra.

We really enjoyed staying at this hotel recently that we turned our 2 night stay into a 3 night stay. Staff were really helpful and friendly and rooms were kept really clean. There is a pool, steam room and turkish bath in this hotel and price is very good value. Buffet breakfast had a great choice of sweet and savoury breakfast pieces. I would definitely recommend this hotel to stay in in petra. It's about 20 min walk from the gates of Petra, its a nice walk down the hill or a short 2JD taxi ride away. There is also a cool cheap and cheerful kebab place around the corner which has great falafel wraps and schwarma wraps for 1JD! All the locals get their food there - we ate there alot on our stay in Petra!

We stayed at this hotel for three nights in October 2011. It is really a good hotel with good quality rooms and excellent value for money. I really fretted about staying here or the Movenpick - but this place is excellent and I am glad that I saved the money for the sites. Breakfast was ok - a little boring after three days but of good standard. We did the Petra by Night tours which was great fun. Also I had a turkish bath at the hotel which was so good and cleanising after a day sweating inside Petra. Overall this is a very comfortable hotel that meet the needs of those not wanting a hostel or paying a fortunate at Movenpick and others.

Room Tip: Rooms facing towards Petra or front of building had a better feel about them

Great location - lovely comfortable terrace, good room, quiet, clean and really good value. Staff were polite, efficient and really friendly and helpful. Top tip is just around the corner in a little Swarmaria called Al Arabi where lots of the locals eat - clean and amazing food! Two of us with big appetites were full for less than £5 including fresh juice and water. Other top tip is get up early and hit Petra before the tour buses get there - we got in at 6.30am and saw all the major sights without a tourist in sight!

Cool and calm environment in which to brush the dust off and slake your thirst. Don't expect to walk to Petra from here, but taxi only 2JD one way. Drinks are a bit pricey, food is plentiful, but nothing special,dinner bufet is good value (for meateaters). Rooms clean and quiet, staff mostly friendly and helpful. Would stay again, heated swimming pool a major selling point.

Room Tip: Rooms to front have views over Wadi Musa
