After first night we went to visit Ashaab ul Kahaf and the Dead Sea. After second night we departed to Jerusalem early in the morning. After return from Jerusalem we stayed one additional night...

We spent two nights at the Al-Fanar Palace hotel. The biggest drawbacks, in my mind, are the distance to central Amman and the staggeringly busy road at the entrance. Our room was large, with a very comfortable, enormous bed, plus TV and bar-fridge. The bathroom was not luxurious, but quite acceptable. That said, we had all the amenities we needed,... More

I stayed here since it was the starting and ending hotel of my Jordan tour. When I first arrived here, I got a horrible room with no wifi and it was really dusty and the staff were really rude. Thankfully the lobby area and patio were nice and had good wifi there. On my last stay there, it was like... More

Best Hotel in Poor location. Wall to wall carpet, spacious rooms with all amenities. Tv's are outdated. Staff is so so cooperative. very good ambiance. Food is continental. Wi fi service is very poor and sometimes didn't get connection at all. But overall our experience was nice.
