Mina hotel is located in the center of Aqaba, however, it is poorly maintained. One of the employees told me that the owner, who lives in Amman, has lost interest in the hotel and no investments are made. The rooms, furniture and the whole building represent neglect. The main entrance speaks for itself. The rooms are poorly equipped and the... More

At the time we were in Aqaba this hotel offered the best price for accommodation. In the morning I booked a room but in the evening it turned out that the room I booked was not available, which was weird. Our first night was a disaster – the A/C was very loud and we could not sleep, plus the third... More

Ok basic hotel but nothing special. I had huge problems with the wifi and I depend on having working wifi when I travel alone. At the front desk I never got an answer when I tried to find some shop or restaurant, felt like the person working there knew nothing about Aqaba.

We stayed in this hotel only for one night to go to Petra. We arrived in the morning to do check in because the entrance in Petra is cheaper for the people who stay one night or more in Jordan. The girl in the reception was really nice and did your check in and also gave to us the room... More

This hotel is a typical three star property in Petra. Do not expect luxury, but the place offer solid basic amenities and service. The place is generally clean (carpets in the corridors are a bit worn and could use a good shampooing), the rooms are well maintained and very clean. The bathrooms are large and very clean. Towels are wonderful.... More

The hotel is in an excellent location, rooms are clean and tidy, staff are very helpful when needed, very good breakfast for a 3 star hotel, the swimming pool is large, new sunbeds need and the terrace on the rooftop has magnificent view of the sea and very relaxing at night

It's actually a good hotel if you're low on cash, but it isn't that much of a fancy hotel. Wifi only works in the reception. The pool was pretty clean. In my room, the flush of the toilet wasn't working, but i managed to fix it for them! Overall it's good when you're low on cash and in need for... More

This hotel has very mixed reviews but I spent three nights there and thought it fine. I was with a party of eight; two people sharing had a very poor room as reviews describe here, but asked to change it and did so without problems. The rest of us were happy with our spacious and clean rooms: it isn't fancy... More

The door of my room was broken by some thievs in the past, the bed linen were clearly used, and the shower wasn't working. Not aligned to his category and not actually that good. The position is nice, in the touristic area and not far from the sea.

This hotel is filthy once you get past reception and enter into the lifts. It just goes downhill from there! The carpets in the hallways are not just manky from years of use, I don't think they ever saw a hoover. When I got to my room, I was surprised about the good quality of the towels, but disgusted that... More
