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

A friend knew Guido, the owner, and recommended By The Lemon Tree to us & we're so glad they did. Located in a lovely, quiet part of town that's also near to great restaurants and sites, this was the perfect start to our time in Jordan. Impeccably clean, the room was finished to a very high standard and very comfortable.... More

"this is not an hotel" is the leitmotive on the website. True. Luckily. I can't really categorize this place: maybe a b&b + with great shared facilities. Elegant and practical, no frills, everything works. A great option if you need to stay more than just a few days, and you don't mind making your own laundry or cooking your dinner,... More

This is an excellent alternative to a bland, upscale hotel. Tranquil and human; very friendly and with more than a touch of its own character – a hotel that insists it's not a hotel, which is actually a pretty good description, all in all. Good value, very well appointed and scrupulously clean with an excellent breakfast beneath the large lemon tree... More

I recently stayed at By the Lemon Tree with my husband and teenage daughter for 3 nights earlier this month. I tried booking about 5 months ago but was told that the room he had available was too small for 3. I booked at the Intercontinental but a week before our trip I inquired again at BTLT and there were... More

I stayed at this guest house for over 12 weeks and it is truely a home from home. Situated in one of the lovliest areas of the city, it is the perfect base for either business or tourist visitors. Located within a two minute walk from Paris Square where you can find good local shops, a decent bar with good... More
