Staff very helpful with our requests for help. Daughter needed new time block for Jordan phone. At 2100H, clerk "Yes, we will bring to you very soon." As in 10 minutes and no surcharge! Breakfast room, service & food all very good. Very decent prices. Reminded us of Most Romantic Marigold Hotel without being a shambles.

Located near the city centre and about ten blocks from the beach. With basic Jordanian breakfast, poor wifi quality, but with clean beds and friendly staff. I would recommend this hotel for only 2-3 nights.

This hotel is located close to a street with plenty of restaurants. The waterfront is walkable from here. Basic accommodation with typical Jordanian fare as breakfast. The lobby smells due to their staff smoking there. The wifi didn't work in the room and we had to use it in the lobby always.

A budget hotel, Al Qidra provides the basics - great beds; clean bedding; hot water, breakfast (really good breakfast), wi-fi, plus the staff are very friendly and helpful. They also provide a shuttle bus plus entrance ticket to the Berenice Beach resort which is down the south beach. A great place to relax, swim (pools and sea) eat and generally... More

I arrived in Jordan - a lone female traveller having been robbed and was short of money. The staff went out of their way to help me and made everything so much better after a terrible experience. I stay there once or twice a year on my way through to Israel. It is located near the big hotels (Movenpick, Kempinsky)... More

The hotel was nice and we had a huge room with sofa, fridge and balcony. People in the reception were nice and the received us with a cup of tea while we were checking in. We had to leave the hotel before breakfast time and at that time of the morning they gave us breakfast to take away.

Spent 3 nights there, as was in Aqaba for the diving. Hotel location is good, lots of restaurants, shops and liquor stores close by. Dive Aqaba Dive Centre is just 2 minutes walk away. Room clean and comfortable. I upgraded to a Deluxe which had a bit more space. Internet access was good. Breakfast a bit bland and uninteresting, but... More

I have stayed at the Al Qidra 1/2 a dozen times. It's a very well located hotel, with the most accommodating and hospitable staff. The hotel is quite basic, but clean and very comfortable. They provide a simple breakfast. Will assist in sorting out transport and tours to Petra and Wadi Rum. Definitely very good value for the money I... More
