Great value hotel right in the heart of downtown Amman. Clean and perfectly comfortable. The staff are what really make this the hotel to choose though! All were friendly and sweet. Hanni on reception was particularly great and went out of his way to offer advice and tips. We were made to feel really welcome, and his advice helped us... More

The hotel was easy to find and is in a great location to explore the sights of Amman. Check-in was a bit strange as the check-in guy did not seem to know what he was doing, but overall everything ended up being okay. The room was of sufficient quality. Nothing great, nothing horrible. Breakfast was nice - fresh eggs cooked... More

This is a budget hotel, in the heart of downtown Amman. If you are expecting luxury, this is not for you. If you want clean, basic accommodation, with air conditioning, refrigerator and shower facilities - and excellent value for money - then this property is a winner! The staff were all very kind and helpful. Breakfast was adequate, and I... More

This place was great place to stay if your looking for something on the cheaper side in Amman. With breakfast included (omelette, pita, hummus, meat, tomato, jams and toast - The coffee has cardamom ground in with the beans if you thought it tasted weird) it was close enough to everything was within reasonable walking distance. We ate at Jerusalem... More

This is a pristine, comfortable hotel, with excellent, friendly service in English. The location is excellent if you are wanting to be in the thick of the action - but it could be too noisy and busy if you want relaxation. It was perfect for us as students. The breakfast is served on the roof, with great views, and is... More

Having now stayed at two hotels in downtown Amman, I have come to expect basic but adequate accommodation at a bargain price, and the Arab Tower is perhaps the best, and certainly one of the cheapest. Like most places in downtown Amman, it wouldn't win any awards for style and elegance, but it does all the basic things, and well... More

I booked this hotel because of excellent reviews on TripAdvisor and the fabulous location just down the street from the theatre. Therefore was pretty surprised at what I found. The front desk was really unfriendly man and the bellboy equally sour looking. I was shown to a room, which had a big window that looked straight into a dark air... More

This hotel has a great location in the centre of the downtown area of Amman which has all the local life. Plus it is very close to the Roman amphitheatre. Most of the bigger hotels are in the suburbs. It's a rather rundown building and the furniture and fittings are somewhat worn looking. However it is extremely clean and excellent... More

Nice, spacious rooms with views over the city. Cheap. Heavy traffic (noise) during day and night. The restaurant upgraded the breakfast with a fresh omelet. Although they have a menu, bear in mind your order is bought in by a takeaway as they do not run a kitchen themselves. The food we had was horrible. With help of the staff... More
