I stayed 3 nights at the start and end of the trip. 1st night on 4th floor - very very tired room. Final nights on 6th floor - much more comfortable but still showing signs of wear. Breakfast is poor but we had a surprisingly nice evening meal in the restaurant. Location is dreadful if you want to walk anywhere,... More

I will try first to say something good. The welcome was fine but the man on the desk soon gets impatient when you ask questions, probably as he is so busy. The wifi was free and worked really well. The room was large and the bed was OK. There was hot water and the toilet worked OK. The carpet had... More

This was the hotel in Amman chosen by Mercury Direct for our Week in Jordan guided tour. We stayed here for 4 nights, 3 nights first on arrival for visiting Amman, Jaresh and the Desert Castles, etc, then returned for one more night from Petra before flying home. Nothing is within walking distance and it is not even safe to... More

They organized a... More

This hotel was built to a high standard and is located in a reasonably convenient part of downtown-ish Amman. Having said that, it is apparent that even with basic housekeeping under- taken, the rooms and hotel in general are becoming tired, shabby even (typically broken bidet, deposits encrusted in corners of bathroom, dilapidated décor etc), although there's no hint of...

The hotel is definitely quite old and also slightly away from the main city. The furnishing and the overall look of the rooms is ancient. The breakfast is minimal ... not a recommendable hotel. The helpful staff was the only positive thing about the hotel.

I stayed there overnight on the 25th of October with a group, the front office staff were very helpful , professional and willing to help. The rooms were not very tidy and you get the feeling of being in deserted old hotel. Bathrooms were not very clean as well. The two meals we had was okay in terms of the... More
