Given the location there isn't much choice but it still offers an average accommodation solution. Guess without competition means prices and amenities are not tested so felt a little over priced compared to other Jordan cities like Malaba with other options. Hard to find thanks to Google Maps but the OB signs near the hotel helped us find it in... More

Amazing view, room was ok. The hotel itself could use some renovation. We were almost alone there, unbelievable. Friendly owner Restaurant could be better but breakfast was good Not to miss! Nice trip from Amman. You could pass via Ajloun.

I came here with my friend, it was our first night in Jordan after arriving at Amman airport at the stupid hour of 2am. We found ourselves at Olive Branch hotel at 6.30am and hoped that although we were incredibly early for our booking that evening we might be able to have a room to catch up on our sleep.... More

Nice location in the hills with green view. Book the newer rooms away from the main building. The main building needs refurbishment. Diner is mediocre and the dining room is even worse. Wifi only at the reception. In the 2nd week of april we were here all alone. Good starting point to visit Aljoun Castle/forest/Umm Qais and Jerash of course.... More

We stayed at Olive Branch twice now with our group. It is a wonderful facility beyond just the rooms. The meeting room is large and accommodating. The food is delicious and staff always helpful. My favorite aspect to the Olive Branch is the quiet rural location that is surrounded by peaceful hills and greenery. A beautiful place to stay.

The hotel is a bit hard to find. Our Jordanian driver missed the turn and had to ask for directions, so keep an eye out for the small sign at the intersection. If you do miss it, most people in the area seem to know the location and can give directions. The view, especially the lights at night, is very... More
