I stayed in a single room as I just wanted a place to stay for two nights that was clean and close to the city. I had read great reviews of this place on trip advisor so wanted to check it out for myself. The rates are fantastic and the room was clean with an ensuite bathroom. It's not luxurious... More

I stayed at the Sydney Hotel on three separate nights as I travelled through the region, and each visit was great. It's a budget hotel, of course, but it was a very good one at that, and the atmosphere in the communal area is very nice. The location is also perfect, and although the breakfast was slightly pricey at 2,50... More

I stayed at the Sydney Hotel as a rest stop while on a year long journey. There were plenty of happy guests staying for 1 or 2 nights. It is in a great location, downtown, close to everything you could need. This hotel has a great common area with tv, movies, excellent internet, and plenty of tables to eat or... More

Our group was made to feel very welcome by Tarik and Marissa. It was always nice to come back from a day out. Tajik was also very happy to provide local information. It is an easy walk to a variety of places to eat as well as the downtown landmarks. Rooms are basic but clean, all that is needed.

Located near Amman city center and in walking distance of all the major sights of Jordan's capital. Hotel is situated in an older building and the rooms are a little bit dated, but this gives them the right amount of atmosphere. Bed was good and we slept well. Water in the shower was lukewarm which was a little bit uncomfortable... More

Sydney Hotel was a great introduction to hotels in Jordan. It is conveniently located right between downtown and Rainbow Street, and is within walking distance to most of the main sights such as the Roman Theatre and The Citadel. There are also plenty of restaurants nearby. The manager was friendly and helpful. His assistants were also very nice and everyone... More

Such a lovely place to stay if you want to be close downtown and if you want to be among good people. Tarik and Diya are great, they were very helpful and friendly, always there when you need something. Good value for money. Room and bathroom were clean. We booked some trips with them and it was perfect. Thank you... More

This place is perfectly located near downtown amman and the owner is very welcoming. There is a very warm atmosphere in the guesthouse which is very pleasant. The rooms are comfortable. Not all the same quality and price so ask or look for the different kinds when you booked. Owner was very happy we stayed there. We spent one night... More

If you need a true and honest friend in Amman who can provide you appropriate suggestion for your customized travel plan, then host of this hotel are one of the best. A very comfortable stay without having the feeling of staying in a foreign and unknown land.

Thank you for the lovely Feedback. We are glad that you have enjoyed your stay with us and satisfied with the service. It was a pleasure hosting you. Just a note, we do have rooms with balconies that are facing the downtown area but since you have requested a quite room, we allocated you in the rooms at the back. More

The hotel staff is very welcoming and helpful. Good price for the one who wants to be in the city center. The hot water from 7:30 to 11:30 then from 5:30 to 11:30. The only problem: very noise as the room was on side of the street.

Thank you for your feedback and we are pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us. The hot water is as you have indicated and that is because we try to save energy since our water heating system uses fuel and during the off times most of our guests are outside either touring the country or doing what...
