Here is your home away from home. A super friendly family run institution. You feel the genuine warmth as soon as you walk in. This place is quaint and kitschy, but great too. Free parking on the street. It's an easy 10 minute walk to the heart of the tiny town of Madaba. Good local eats surround you, with a... More

By far the best hotel we stayed in Jordan, for the quality of service. The room was clean, the bathroom spotless, working air-con, breakfast EXCELLENT, with most of Jordanian specialties, home made jam, biscuits, and lovely mixture of date syrup and sesame paste (kind of drug for me!). Odeh, the owner, is a lovely person, ready to do his best... More

We arrived in Madaba at half past midnight after our flight was delayed from London by two hours. Odeh, the owner of the hotel, waited up for us and let us in which was such a relief! The hotel was clean, very comfy and Odeh was incredibly welcoming and talked to us for a long time about Arab culture and... More

This review is coming rather late, but I highly recommend this hotel. I stayed here for two nights at the end of a solo trip through Jordan last year - my room was very clean and comfortable with a window looking into the pretty garden, breakfast was delicious, and the owner and staff had wonderful recommendations for how to spend...

At the beginning, a woman took care of us at the lobby, saying that two rooms were available. Then, the manager arrived... More
