The staff here were very friendly and the hotel itself is cheap, clean, and in a good location. By no means is it a luxury hotel and sometimes the internet access was spotty but everything else worked great (especially the clean bathrooms with hot water) and it is excellent value for the price.

Central location with an easy walk to waterfront, restaurants, etc. Our room was large, pretty clean, and had a balcony from which you could see some of the Red Sea. The staff here was very welcoming, particularly the gentleman on the night shift. We had trouble using ATMs in Aqaba and he tried to help us call our banks (international... More

This hotel was clean and comfortable and close to restaurants and shops. The room size is ample and the bed comfortable. Everything worked and the staff were accommodating. For a one night stay in Aqaba this hotel was reasonably priced and a good base to explore.

This hotel is a far cry from being the current 4.5 valuation on Tripadvisor. It is centrally located, very close to the Aqaba's public beach, it is clean and the staff of the hotel was really welcoming and helpful. However our room was rather minimal and cheap looking, the furniture was really worn and old, the fridge was noisy and... More

I only stayed in Aqaba for one night as I was getting the ferry from egypt and the next day was going to wadi rum. I wish I stayed here longer as his hotel was great. I few things I will point out 1) the staff are brilliant especially Abdullah-Abualdarak, he must be the friendliest person in all of Jordan.... More

I should say: very fair price. Our room was excellent, spacious, everything was there, nice balcony as well. Staff very friendly and helpful. And breakfast....... out of this world! I booked without really knowing what to expect; it turned out to be the best value for money hotel of our entire 10 day trip through Jordan!
