As a disclaimer, we only stayed here 6 hours between our 12am flight landing in Amman to our bus to Petra the next morning. The room for breakfast looked nice and the location was good. Also, we requested for someone to pick us up from the airport, and he was very nice and it was reasonably priced. However, we had... More

I stayed here for about 4 days a few months back. Very good location but it can be a bit difficult to find as the place is down an alley. The rooms themselves were alright...small, firm, but clean beds. The shower and toilet area is a bit awkward in terms of spacing but you can make it work. My biggest... More

I stayed there one night in October and would say there are better options in the city... The airport pickup was reasonably priced at 20 JD but the room (single room) was so so and the bed and other furniture looked very old. Bathrooms need some work and the room light was very dim. Breakfast was a bit dismal and... More

Pros: View of King Faisal Street, cheap price, helpful staff, room with balcony Cons: breakfast slow and very basic, bathrooms need some work Bottom line: We lucked out with our double room, which had a little balcony. We stayed here on our first night in Jordan, and it met our basic requirements. The staff are a mix of extremely friendly... More

I travel as cheap as possible. I want good location. I want decent staff and a clean place to lay my head at night. With that being said, I had all of these things at The Palace Hotel. Is it pretty or well decorated - no. But I was able to get to all the "must sees" of Amman on... More

Let's start with the positives: 1.Friendly staff who speak extremely good English 2. Excellent location (if you don't mind a bit of noise) Negatives: 1. We reserved a double room over a month in advance and got a room with 3 single beds. 2. The bathrooms were pretty grubby, and I've stayed in a lot of budget hotels in developing... More

This hotel is very low priced, so my expectations were low to begin with. However, I did think that there would be hot water in the showers (to be fair, sometimes there was lukewarm water, other times the water was completely cold). Towels are provided but they are very small half-size towels so bring your own! The lobby is a... More

The rooms are in a bad state, the breakfast was the poorest I had during my trip in Jordan. The fotos on some hotel booking websites do not correspond to the reality. In other hotels nearby you get the same quality for less money.

We stayed here for a six days during our trip to Amman before we head south to Petra and then to Israel. Location is definitely the strong point for this place. Its right in downtown, so it allows us to stroll around markets and look for cheap eats after we finish with the day trips. Plus the staff are pretty... More
