I sted here for two nights. The location is excellent within close proximity of the old city and places you are recommended to visit. All the notable restaurants in tour guidebooks are a stone's throw away. Notably, the service received was beyond STELLAR! They arranged for all my travel with a very helpful, friendly, resourceful, and reasonable driver to cover... More

During my 3 weeks in Jordan, I always ended up here again. And for good reasons. The Sydney Hotel makes for a fantastic base to organize individual trips throughout the country, it is THE perfect place to meet other travelers, there is a fantastic community vibe, which feels a lot like a big family. The management always seems to go... More

Easily the best hostel in Amman. Homely, friendly atmosphere, comfortable rooms, and nice court yard area. Stayed here 3 nights and can easily recommend. Everything works, breakfast is simple but fine, clean, lounge area is great, good security. Tours on offer can be easily beaten if you use the local transport systems, the few shared bathroom facilities get busy, so... More

When you travel, the hotel you stay in is often the most important part of the travel itself. It is where you rest and rejuvenate, a place where you can gather information about local details in order to plan your next move. Your hotel can shelter you, connect you to an amazing network of people and activities and also be... More

I arrived to this hotel at 01.00 am with taxi arranged by the hotel. It was after midnight, and I was terribly tired after having long flights. My first impression was the hotel is old (of course, it’s not five star hotel), neighborhood area is a bit dark and many government building surrounding. Next day, I found that the hotel... More

This review is long overdue- cannot speak highly enough of this place. In August, my friend and I were travelling in Amman and he fell ill with a gastrointestinal infection. He ended up staying in hospital for four days and we had to make major plan changes on the fly. Dia and Tareq were beyond supportive through this process, offering... More

The place is clean and comfortable, but what makes it special is the wonderful friendly atmosphere, which encourages you to get to know the other guests. Dia and Tareq were very helpful in recommending places to eat , taxis, etc.

Perhaps it's an odd thing to say, but the most important people to meet when you stay at the Sydney Hotel are not people at all. They're the in-hotel cats, Boogie and Needy. One's a sleepy-faced black lump, the other's a wild-eyed white fuzz ball. Besides being fantastic company in the hotel common room, both are emblematic of the spirit... More

I would like to thank you for staying with us twice and for your honest review. We know that the Sydney Hotel is an average place compared to other higher stars ranking hotels but as well the price is much lower than these places. We are constantly doing repairs and renovating the place to make it nicer. We never stopped... More

On the recommendation of a friend, I stayed here for a night upon my arrival in Jordan and two nights after returning from a road trip around the country with friends. Both nights I stayed in the dorm -- no a/c -- for JD7. Beds are comfortable with very clean linens and complimentary towels and keys for lockers. Even without... More

It was really a pleasure getting to know Dia’ and Tareq. The hosts were very welcoming and hospitable. They make their best to cater to the needs of their guests and create a very welcoming environment and an enjoyable experience. The hotel is in a very nice spot located between the old downtown Amman and rainbow street. Looking forward to... More
