Not a hotel but a great place to stay. Location is ideal,rooms are very nice and inclusive breakfast is served in a cosy kitchen/diner/lounge area. Nice roof terrace with nice views over the city. This is the kind of place you want to keep to yourself so not sure why I am posting this. Guido arranged transport to and from... More

The attitude of the owner is so off-putting that it really detracts from what would otherwise be a nice place to stay. As you can see for yourself in his responses to other (positive) reviews on this site - he is quite rude and inflexible. It was unfortunate to encounter such rudeness in Jordan of all places, where all the... More

Meeowwww Anne!! Yes, it is all true. Annascan and her friends are the proud recipients of a piece of my mind for sheer aloofness, grandiose self absorption and utter incoherence. I even still have all 21 emails, 14 notices on Booking.com and 4 text messages it took in order to arrange their 3 day Spring Break getaway. And that doesn't... More

Amman was our first stop in Jordan after a long day coming from Brussels. We quickly forgot the hectic ride coming from the airport with our rental car once the gate opened. Although it isn't clearly mentioned by means of sign, just ask the police at the italian embassy where you can find this marvelous B&B. After 2 minutes we... More

I was only able to stay one night upon my arrival here but Guido had arranged an early Friday am pickup at the airport for I was traveling with my dog. He helped in finding us another dog friendly place since he did not have more nights available ..and made sure we safely landed in Amman. The accommodations are very... More

By The Lemon Tree is in Jabal el Webdeh, my favourite area in Amman, where you can (even) walk, and (even) have a bottle of wine! I spent here a week working in Amman. The place is really cool. It is a pleasure to stay in the common area, where you can meet nice people if you are lucky (like... More

My husband and I stayed here for 4 nights in early January. The clean, comfortable room, spacious common area, and cozy breakfast room were welcome respites from the cold. Guido hosts a wide range of guests and pets, all in a convivial atmosphere. I would definitely recommend, and I would definitely stay here again.

We have spent 5 nights in By The Lemon Tree which is very well managed by Guido and his staff. For travelers who are looking for an accommodation it has to be mentioned that By The Lemon Tree is not a hotel but a kind of guest house with all of its advantages. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is... More

Apparently, this place is not a hotel and, in fact, the owners do live on the premises with their 4 year old daughter, 4 dogs, 12 cats and however many tortoises. So it does look like a household. But here’s the thing about this place. Breakfast is served on real tablecloths with assorted napkins and … silverware… and not the... More

I have just spent a week in Jordan with colleages, and we filled the guest house. Guido was so friendly that he had someone to move so there should be room for us. So friendly, so calm, but remember: This is not a hotel. You are staying with Guido, his wife, daughter, 12 cats an 4 dogs. You will be... More
