A quite comfortable hotel. Some of the rooms maybe need a bit of refurbishment, but overall we liked this hotel. The location is in the modern part of the city, so not close to the Citadel if you are planning to head there.

Al Fanar, probably was once a good property.Presently my guess,it us undergoing slow and selective refurbishing of rooms . Definitely toilets in some rooms need improvement. Dinning room service also needs improvement. However food served in good.

Terrible hotel. Breakfast was not even edible! Lifts very slow. No wifi in rooms but was Ok in reception. Nothing at all near by, no restaurants. Very tired decor. Air conditioning didn't work. Shower was fine. Was there as part of a cycling trip but would not recommend going

Stayed first 2 nights of a trip to Jordan and it was the poorest quality of the hotels I visited in Jordan.The place is nice on entering but the rooms are tired and jaded.They also stink of stale tobacco. Breakfast was pretty poor offering of overcooked eggs and stale breads with yoghurt dips. It is also badly located for exploring... More

I was here with the Exodus tour, 'A Week in Jordan', our first rooms were on the 4th floor and seemed run down, old, and dirty and cramped. However we also stayed here before we all headed home and we stayed on the 5th floor which seemed to be better kept and less cramped and in a better all round... More

Good food. Reasonable location to downtown markets, amphitheater, etc. Room was at the end of a hall way. The wifi did not reach well there and had to go to the lobby. So if you want wifi make sure you check with the reception. Amenities like gym, etc are closed during holidays. So plan accordingly if you intend to use... More

Stayed here for a night en route to Sharjah from Israel. The room was ok except that it did not have a tea maker. My request for one was turned down curtly by the reception (house keeping number did not respond). The TV had only 5 Arab channels and one Hindi channel with Arab sub title. One expected better entertainment... More

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
